Mabon Sabbat Box Moon Magick Sabbat Box - Witch Subscription Box

Hail and Welcome, Sabbat Box Members and Friends!

Summer is moving on, and cooler air will soon invite us outside. Autumn is the time the earth brings for shorter days and longer nights, its balance culminating on the equinox--which many Pagans and witches refer to as Mabon. Around this time the harvest moon can be seen, the last of the fruits of the earth are to be gathered and the time of thanksgiving for all the bounty gathered and stored. This year’s Mabon Sabbat Box celebrates the moon and her magickal and mundane influence on our lives.

    • BOX SYNOPSIS •


    2018 Mabon Sabbat Box - Moon Magick Sabbat Box - Wiccan Ritual Supplies Pagan Subscription Box Service

    All of the items that we curated for you inside this box correspond with -or- may help assist you with the following forms of magick:

    • Moon Magick
    • Candle Magick
    • Intention Setting
    • Working with the moon phases
    • Working with and connecting with the divine feminine
    • Using moon spells to help bring forth changes you seek

    In addition to thanksgiving and harvest, the autumn exquinox is a time of balance. The word equinox itself comes from the Latin word aequinoctium - aequus meaning equal and nox meaning night. During both the spring and fall equinox, day and night are nearly equal. Enforcing the equilibrium is the fact that the sun enters Libra, a sign of balanced scales, on the morning of the autumn equinox. Celebrating balance means appreciating the light and dark within your life. What does the light bring you? Think of the sun, the day, the progress you make during that timeframe and what you draw to you. And what does the dark do for you? Think of letting go, of cleansing, of the night, and, especially, of the moon. After all, we’re entering her jurisdiction as we travel to the darker half of the year!

      Moon Magick Mabon Sabbat Box

      TIME: We take pride in assembling each and every Sabbat Box by hand, no matter the amount of time it takes. We don't just throw your items inside a flat rate priority mail box like some other subscription box companies out there. We want your Sabbat Box to be delivered to you as beautifully as it left us, and it takes a tremendous amount of time to complete this task.

      This includes folding the boxes together, individually cutting each sheet of tissue paper by hand, weighing out the crinkle paper for each box, designing the flyers, coupons, stickers and brochures to be printed professionally by commercial printers, individually placing each item within their corresponding bags, individually assembling the boxes, individually packing the tissue paper within each box by hand and also putting together and creating product packing. This timeframe doesn't even include the efforts made to manage the Sabbat Box website, the back end billing system, social media management, customer service inquiries, accounting, marketing, purchasing, networking, and so on. This is a labor of love and we enjoy serving the community!


      We believe in what it is we are doing and we sincerely hope that each and every one of you can see that the purest of intent and utmost care goes into curating each Sabbat Box.

      Mabon Moon Magick - Sabbat Box Theme

      Mabon 2018 Sabbat Box Theme Release • Moon Magick II 1

      Moon Magick Mabon 2018 Sabbat Box Theme - Sabbat Box a Witch Subscription Box For Pagans

      • 2018 MABON - FALL EQUINOX SABBAT BOX THEME • MOON MAGICK •


      The weather cools, a chill settling in the air. The leaves begin to turn to fiery colors: Yellow. Red. Orange.  The spectrum creates a rainbow over the landscape as they fall to the ground, filling the air with an earthy scent. The autumn equinox is near.


      The equinox itself is a scientifically observable event when the tilt of the earth is so that the sun passes over the earth’s equator.  Because of this, the sun rises exactly east and sets exactly west rather than at a slight tilt towards the poles and we experience a near-equal day and night. This event occurs twice a year: Once at spring and once in the fall. In 2018, the Autumn Equinox will take place on September 22nd at 4:02 PM EDT. 

      Mabon and Moon Magick - Sabbat Box theme release for Mabon 2018 - A Subscription Box For Witches and PagansFor pagans and witches, the fall equinox is also known as Mabon, one of three harvest festivals on the Wheel of the Year. We owe the name "Mabon" itself to Aidan Kelly in the 1970s, a reference to characters, or perhaps gods, from Welsh lore. That being said, though the name is relatively new, the concept of a celebration occurring around the fall equinox is not. Oschophoria was a festival in ancient Greece that honored the grape harvest and wine. Eighteenth century Bavarians celebrated Oktoberfest in the last week of September, a festival that continues today. Even the US holiday Thanksgiving originally occurred on October 3rd, just a week and a half after the equinox. It wasn’t until 1863 that it was moved to November and 1941 before it settled on the date it is today. As such, the modern Autumn Equinox as a pagan festival is one of thanksgiving and gratitude.


      Much of this thanksgiving tradition with Mabon is owed to its timing around the fall harvest. Customs of the holiday include this, creating themes of completion and goal achievement. This is a great time to reflect upon the past to see if you have reaped what you’ve sown from seeds planted in the spring. What goals did you want to achieve at the beginning of the year? Have they come to fruition?  What do you need to do to find completion? This might even mean cutting your losses to move forward, much as a farmer might do with a dud crop.

       

      Mabon Altar For A Fall Equinox Ritual - Sabbat Box Mabon 2018 Theme Release - A Subscription Box For PagansMabon altar for a Fall Equinox ritual

       

      In addition to thanksgiving and harvest, the autumn equinox is a time of balance.  The word equinox itself comes from the Latin word aequinoctium- aequus meaning equal and nox, of course, meaning night. During both the spring and fall equinox, day and night are nearly-equal. Enforcing this equilibrium is the fact that the sun enters Libra, a sign of balanced scales, on the morning of the autumn equinox. Celebrating balance means appreciating the light and dark within your life. What does the light bring you? Think of the sun, the day, the progress you make during that timeframe and what you draw to you. And what does the dark do for you?  Think of letting go, of cleansing, of the night and, especially, of the moon. After all, we’re entering her jurisdiction as we travel to the darker half of the year.


      Mabon has always had a close association with the moon. The full moon near the fall equinox, the Harvest Moon, is probably the most well-known. This particular full moon derives its name from the farmers working late into the night, the crops illuminated by its brilliant light. The Harvest Moon is sometimes called the Wine Moon as well because it rises in a beautiful orange-red splendor, akin to the fiery colors of the autumn leaves below. Moreover, for those that believe in the goddess, Mabon is when she officially enters her “waning” phase – another emphasis on the connection of this equinox with the moon.

      Mabon and Moon Magick - Sabbat Box a Subscription Box For Witches Wiccans and Pagans


      But this isn’t all. As stated earlier, the equinox isn’t exactly a perfect balance of night and day – it is only nearly equal. That perfect equality, called equilux rather than equinox, occurs a few days before the actual equinox itself. We owe this offset on the day the sun passes over the equator’s plane to atmospheric diffusion and, of course, our beloved moon. Earth’s satellite causes the planet’s orbit to vary from a perfect ellipse. It’s also why we have the tilt, and thus the equinoxes, in the first place. Thus the moon has a profound effect on this sabbat in particular!


      Mabon Altar For A Fall Equinox Ritual - Sabbat Box Mabon 2018 Theme Release - A Subscription Box For Pagans Mabon altar for a Fall Equinox ritualBecause of the fall equinox’s especially close connection to the moon, Sabbat Box would like to announce its Mabon box theme: Moon Magick II. Our first Moon Magick themed Sabbat Box was presented on Ostara of last year.  It seems only appropriate to present the second of this theme on the mirror holiday to the first.  Moon Magick deals with the darkness and the ways we attempt to illuminate it, much like a candle in the night. It is spiritual, cleansing, divinatory and divine. It’s also natural, emphasizing harvested herbs akin to the harvest of the fall.


      This box will assist subscribers on working with not just the Harvest Moon in its full status but every phase during this time – and throughout the year! The items you’ll discover will be educational, interactive and fully integrated with the moon herself, and will include more exclusive items just for our members. We can’t wait for our subscribers to open up this magickal box and begin harnessing the full power of the many phases of the moon this equinox!

      Hail and Welcome, Sabbat Box Members and Friends!

      Lughnasadgh, the Gaelic festival and feast celebrating the first harvest is upon us!

We hope that with this year's Sabbat Box for Lammas, you are able to connect with the Sabbat in a unique way, while also enjoying the fruits of your labor and the joy of abundance that this beloved Sabbat represents.

        • BOX SYNOPSIS •


        Shamanic Connection Lammas Lughnasadh Sabbat Box - A Subscription Box For Wiccans and Pagans

        All of the items that we curated for you inside this box correspond with -or- may help assist you with the following forms of magick:

        • Help to aid with meditation
        • Purification
        • Spiritual cleansing and healing
        • Offerings and divination
        • Helps one to incorporate different tools that come directly from the earth into your practice

        For this year’s Lammas Sabbat Box, we wanted to highlight the reliance on the earth by focusing on the original, human-spirit connection method: shamanism. While the most familiar picture of shamanism for many of us refers to the indigenous peoples of North America, shamans have extisted under different titles and names in every part of the globe from the beginning of human history. These early practitioners were the medicine people, the advisors, the knowing members of their group or tribe who were revered and honored highly in those cultures, Shamanism generally refers to practicing higher states of consciousness (sometimes through mind-altering plants and substances called entheogens) as a means of connecting to the Otherworld or Divine. Shamans would enter altered states of consciousness, reaching a state referred to as ecstasy, which in this state would divine messages and help provide guidancefor their people. Dancing, singing, drumming, storytelling, and ritual reenactments of important events were just some of what ancient (and modern) shamans throughout the world have done in their practice. Shamans were also the first spiritual practitioners who incorportated ritual tools and objects from the earth into their practices.

        We at Sabbat Box--who are committed to introducing and providing tools to modern-day practitioners--seek to honor these ancient practitioners with this year’s Lammas Sabbat box theme, Shamanic Connection. We have curated a collection of items that we hope will give deference to shamanic practice and how it has informed our own modern spell craft and ritual practice. At this time of year, with our focus on the gifts of the earthand our place in it, we hope that this year’s Lammas Sabbat Box might bring you a little closer to the earliest roots of Pagan practice and the Earth on which we live.

        Much like the gifts of sustenance the earth provides us during harvest season, the earth alone can lend us all that we need to allow us to further strengthen our bond with it, to further nourish our spirit, and bring us closer the divine.

        The Shaman Wisdom Card/Oracle deck is sure to catch the eye of many of our subscribers as it touts itself as a daily insight and medication deck inspired by Native American wisdom and shamanic practices. While the deck itself is non-specific to any one tradition or Native American tribe, we believe it serves as a launch point for those interested in earth-centered teachings and beliefs.

        Each Shaman Wisdom deck has 65 cards divided into groups of different trees, moons, stones, plants, animals and directions. Cards 1–12 represent the twelve moons, or twelve astrological months of the year. The accompanying booklet gives the dates of the moon period with a short description of the cards’ intent. The next twelve cards depict the 12 animal sisters; animals such as the eagle and the buffalo that are considered spiritual helpers. There are twelve cards that relate to plants, twelve trees, ten sacred stones, and seven great directions. 

        Use it to familiarize yourself with the basic concepts of earth based spirituality and expand your knowledge. This deck is produced by US Games Inc, one of the largest publishers of tarot decks, oracle decks and inspirational decks, who is celebrating their 50th anniversary this year! Some of the most popular tarot decks are published by this company and they hold a variety of awards centered around divination.

        The first item of note is a bowl that is made of polished water buffalo horn. Native to Asia and China, the water buffalo horns utilized for this bowl are ethically salvaged. Use the bowl as a means of catching ashes from your herb bundle or as its own offering bowl. 

        Next is a Guinea Fowl feather. Related to the chicken, Guinea Fowls are native to Africa and have a unique reputation for pest control. They’re nature’s natural cleansers! Use the feather to gently direct the smoke of your smudge stick or herb cleansing bundle as another offering on your altar.

        Finally, a set of 3 Lavender, Sage and Cedar smudge sticks complete your set. 
        The combination of sage and cedar promotes protection while hints of lavender encourage relaxation. Burn this bundle to reset your space and tools or even cleanse your self! All of the herbs within this bundle are ethically sourced by a Native American Cooperative via Windrose Trading Company. Overall, this smoke cleansing kit is a wonderful way for you to connect with the earth around you during this earth-centered harvest.

        This includes folding the boxes together, individually cutting each sheet of tissue paper by hand, weighing out the crinkle paper for each box, designing the flyers, coupons, stickers and brochures to be printed professionally by commercial printers, individually placing each item within their corresponding bags, individually assembling the boxes, individually packing the tissue paper within each box by hand and also putting together and creating product packing. This timeframe doesn't even include the efforts made to manage the Sabbat Box website, the back end billing system, social media management, customer service inquiries, accounting, marketing, purchasing, networking, and so on. This is a labor of love and we enjoy serving the community!


        We believe in what it is we are doing and we sincerely hope that each and every one of you can see that the purest of intent and utmost care goes into curating each Sabbat Box.

        Shamanic Connection - Lammas Sabbat Box 2018 Lughnasadh Sabbat Box

        Lammas 2018 Sabbat Box Theme Release • Shamanic Connection 1

        Shamanic Connection 2018 Lammas Lughnasadh Sabbat Box Theme

        • 2018 LAMMAS - LUGHNASADH SABBAT BOX THEME • SHAMANIC CONNECTION •


        “Shamanism has been defined as the first religion. It existed prior to the earliest civilizations, before our ancestors took the first steps down the long journey to the present. Prior to this time, the shamans were the medicine people, the power wielders, male and female. They wrought magick and spoke to the spirits of nature” — Scott Cunningham, Chapter 1: Wicca and Shamanism, from the book Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner.

        Rolling storms and blazing, humid days. The sweat dripping from your temple and the distorted waves of heat rising from the scorched pavement. In the spring, the seeds were planted. Through the summer, we toiled over the crops. As the fields of corn and wheat glisten in the searing August sun, their stalks ripe with grain, they await their final goal: The first harvest of August Eve.


        Lammas Lughnasadh 2018 Sabbat Box Theme - Shamanic ConnectionAlso known as Lughnasadh or Lammas, this holiday is ripe with history. Lughnasadh is a Gaelic festival and feast said to have been started by the god Lugh. A celebration of the funeral of his mother Tailtiu who died clearing the Irish fields for crops, athletic games were competed in her honor. The festival would also include trial marriages of a year and a day, and massive dinners of the first harvest’s grains and berries would be enjoyed by all. Also associated with August Eve is the English and Scottish holiday of Lammas. Known as the Gule of August in medieval times, Lammas Day was a festival marking the annual wheat and corn harvest. Loaves were blessed and broken into four parts to protect harvested grain in barns while fresh stalks of wheat were gifted to landlords and friends.

        Contemporary August Eve celebrations rely heavily on wheat and corn, crops pinnacle to modern civilization. Loaves of bread grace our holiday feasts while corn dolls are made from the husks of the first harvest. As a harvest holiday, we reap what we sow: Goals set in the beginning of the year are coming to realization. We take inventory of our lives and find gratitude in the path we’ve traveled, paved by our ancestors before us. In fact, the ancestral land, the earth, is a quintessential part of Lammas. Without it, we would have no agriculture, no crops and no harvest. Life as we know it would not exist. We owe everything to the earth and those who came before us.

        Shamanic Connection - Lammas Lughnasadh 2018 Sabbat BoxFor this year’s Lammas Sabbat Box, we wanted to highlight this reliance on the earth by focusing on the original human-spirit connection method: shamanism. While the most familiar picture of shamanism for many refers to the indigenous peoples of North America, shamans have existed under different titles and names in every part of the globe from the beginning of human history. These early practitioners were the medicine people, the advisors, the knowing members of their group or tribe who were revered and honored highly in those cultures. Shamanism at the core of its meaning generally refers to practicing higher states of consciousness as a means of connecting to the Otherworld or Divine. Shamans would enter altered states of consciousness through many trance inducing methods, reaching a state referred to as ecstasy, which would in turn help to divine messages for the shaman which further helped to provide guidance for their people. Dancing, singing, drumming, storytelling, and ritual reenactments of important events were just some of what ancient (and modern) shamans throughout the world have done in their practice, both in celebration or reverence of the earth and divine, and to also promote higher states of consciousness.

        Shamans were also the first spiritual practitioners who incorporated ritual tools and objects from the earth into their practice, the drum for example (made of animal hide and wood) being one of the original, or herbs, which were dried and then burnt as offering being another. We at Sabbat Box are committed to introducing and providing inspiration to modern-day practitioners while revering and seeking to honor the traditions of those who came before us with this year’s Lammas Sabbat Box theme: Shamanic Connection.

        The inspiration behind this year’s Lammas box theme was to curate a box of products that are physically “of or from the earth.” In essence, gifts provided to us that we could use and implement into our own practices…the same way a “Shaman” or any of the original “earth based spiritual practitioners” would have. We did this in a symbolic effort to tie in the connection between the “gifts” of the harvest, and to also tie in the connection of our general ancestral roots as well. 

        Much like the gifts of sustenance the earth provides us during harvest season, the earth alone can lend us all that we need to allow us to further strengthen our bond with it, to further nourish our spirit, and bring us closer the divine.

        Shamanic Connection - 2018 Lammas Lughnasadh Sabbat Box Theme


        *NOTE: The items that are found within this year's Lammas box are not intended to teach anyone how to be a "shaman," nor are they intended to teach any specific spiritual practice that coincides with Indigenous tribes or cultures. We wish to provide items that are inspired by the original spiritual practitioners who would use these gifts of the earth and to incorporate these gifts into your own spiritual practices. At this time of year, with our focus on the gifts of the earth and our place in it, we hope that this year’s Lammas Sabbat Box might bring you a little closer to the earliest roots of spiritual practice and the Earth on which we live.

          Midsummer Sabbat Box Herbal Witchery Witch Subscription Box For Litha Summer Solstice

          All of the items that we curated for you inside this box correspond with -or- may help assist you with the following forms of magick:

          • Herb Magick
          • Hedge Witchery
          • Green Witchery
          • Protection/Purification
          • Using herbs in unique applications and in different methods to aid in your spiritual practice

          The sun. The center of our solar system. Our life force. Without the sun, we wouldn’t be here. We rely on our star to light the way in the darkness of the universe, to provide warmth and comfort and to grow our food and, of course, our herbs. Historical pagans placed a great emphasis on the use of herbs for medicine and magick. From the use of bay leaves by the Greek oracles of Delphi to reach a trance state, to the cunning woman living on the outskirts of a European town (providing herbal medicine to the sick townspeople), herbs are infused as a part of our history. When focusing on such a historically significant holiday here at Sabbat Box, we wanted to use a theme that not only celebrated the sun’s hard work but also tied in its historical beliefs. With its major popularity last year, we decided to give it another go for Litha and do an Herbal Witchery--part two!

Help your guests feel at home and welcome in your space by sprinkling the herbs across your floor before sweeping or vacuuming them up. You can dispose of the remains by sweeping it out your door, flushing them down your toilet or pouring the herbal dust bunnies into your garbage bag.  Some might even brew an herbal floor sweep mixture like they would a tea and add it to mop water. For an extra use, pour the brewed herbs into a spray bottle and cleanse other surfaces in your home, from your kitchen table to your stove, or even a sacred altar surface.

          This authentic rue water by Light of Anjou was made specially for our Herbal Witchery box. Made up of distilled water, rue infused vodka, essential oils of rue, lavender, lime, and citronella, and is also infused with black tourmaline chips. It is a unique twist to a traditional recipe.

          Because of rue’s diverse historical and magickal significance in legend and lore within cultures all around the world, we wanted to find a way to include it within our boxes. One of the more common yet practical ritual applications it is commonly used in combination with today is making rue water with it (especially within Voodoo, Hoodoo, Santeria and Wicca).

          Rue water itself has a variety of uses; from protection to purification, success to healing, to spell breaking or road opening. It is particularly known for its ability to break evil eye, attract customers, and bring good fortune. With Anjou’s extra addition of tourmaline (a stone known for its shielding and protective properties), it helps to enforce the protective and cleaning aspects of this specific infusion. Add a tiny drop to floor washes or ritual baths, trace your circle with it to protect yourself during your Litha ritual, or use around your home to garner protection. Located in Maine, Light of Anjou is an online witchery shop specializing in ritual tools and spell supplies.

          One of the main reasons we included these incense in our box was Herbal Moon Apothecary’s dedication to eco-friendly products. Made with charcoal and bamboo instead of paraben and petroleum, these offer an all-natural alternative to the synthetic material often found in other incense sticks. 

          Another reason for their inclusion was their herbal connection. Each stick is handcrafted with a blend of three sacred herbs that flourish during the summer: rosemary, lavender and sage. Use them to clear your sacred space before your solstice ritual or burn it on an altar as an offering to the entity of your choice.

            🔮4 Crystal Ball Cauldron Candles will be available on Thursday’s update at 8pm EST.🔮 . To me, this is the most powerful candle I witchcraft. The ingredients I use are some of my absolute favorite and ones that I feel a true connection with. Clairvoyance through dreams is something that runs on my maternal side and divination has always been paramount to my practice. Mugwort, blue lotus, star anise, black tourmaline, and amethyst are so potent for divination rituals, especially with the blend of cinnamon, jasmine, and cedarwood essential oils. . On a similar note, I’m planning on using the proceeds from this update to get my Pagan Deck of Extrasensory Cards back in stock. If you aren’t familiar with them, they are a more modern version of Zener cards that I developed to help you test and hone your psychic abilities. I used powerful pagan symbols instead of the classic zener symbols in hopes that you would feel a greater connection with the cards. Check out the listing on my website if you’d like to know more about them. They should be back in stock in a couple of weeks.🔮🖤 .

            Herbal Witchery 2018 Midsummer Sabbat Box

            TIME: We take pride in assembling each and every Sabbat Box by hand, no matter the amount of time it takes. We don't just throw your items inside a flat rate priority mail box like some other subscription box companies out there. We want your Sabbat Box to be delivered to you as beautifully as it left us, and it takes a tremendous amount of time to complete this task.

            This includes folding the boxes together, individually cutting each sheet of tissue paper by hand, weighing out the crinkle paper for each box, designing the flyers, coupons, stickers and brochures to be printed professionally by commercial printers, individually placing each item within their corresponding bags, individually assembling the boxes, individually packing the tissue paper within each box by hand and also putting together and creating product packing. This timeframe doesn't even include the efforts made to manage the Sabbat Box website, the back end billing system, social media management, customer service inquiries, accounting, marketing, purchasing, networking, and so on. This is a labor of love and we enjoy serving the community!


            We believe in what it is we are doing and we sincerely hope that each and every one of you can see that the purest of intent and utmost care goes into curating each Sabbat Box.

            MIDSUMMER SABBAT BOXES ARE SCHEDULED TO SHIP: JUNE 8

            2018 Midsummer Sabbat BoxThe world grows warmer, the days longer and the trees greener.  The sun rises high overhead towards the noon-hour as the Wheel of the Year turns once again.  Here, we find ourselves nearing the Summer Solstice. But what’s in a word? “Solstice” comes from Latin root words “sol” and “sistere.” 

            Sol.  Sun.
            Sistere. Stopped. 

            Quite literally, “solstice” translates to “the day the sun stood still.”  Looking back at what our ancestors must have thought, it’s no surprise as to why!  On the solstice, the sun seems to simply stop at the height of the day, hanging in the summer sky.

             


            Ancient Egyptians may have observed the solstice as it corresponded with the Nile’s rise, offering prediction for flooding.  Some Greek calendars used the Summer Solstice to mark the start of their new year. Romans celebrated Vestalia, a holiday where married women could enter temples designated for virgins only in order to make offerings to the goddess of the home, Vesta. Ancient Europeans celebrated the solstice with bonfires to add to the sun’s growing energy, encouraging a bountiful harvest.  And, of course, we have a number of ancient structures that align with the Summer Solstice, including the ever-popular Stonehenge.

            Modern pagans celebrate the solstice as part of the Wheel of the Year, an adaptation of eight ancient pagan holidays of significance.  Also known as Litha and Midsummer, the Summer Solstice is the beginning of summer and the longest day of the year as the sun reaches its apex in the astrological sign of cancer. Historically, it was the longest work day available, so we often associate this holiday with achievements, hard work and determination. We light bonfires, make music and celebrate success within our work, with all of the festivities being committed in the name of the sun.

            The sun.  The center of our solar system.  Our life force.  Without the sun, we wouldn’t be here.  We rely on our star to light the way in the darkness of the universe, to provide warmth and comfort and to grow our food and, of course, our herbs.  Historical pagans placed a great emphasis on the use of herbs for medicine Oracle of Delphi - Sabbat Box 2018 Midsummer Box Theme Releaseand magic.  From the use of bay leaves by the Greek oracles of Delphi to reach a trance state to the cunning woman living on the outskirts of a European town and providing herbal medicine to the sick townspeople, herbs are infused as part of our history.  When focusing on such a historically significant holiday here at Sabbat Box, we wanted to use a theme that not only celebrated the sun’s hard work but also tied in historical beliefs.  With its popularity last year, we couldn’t think of a theme more representative of this sabbat, or more beloved by our subscribers, than Herbal Witchery – Part Two!

            At the time of the Summer Solstice, a number of herbs reach their peak.  We see these herbs lining the pathways of the forest in the hot summer sun, dancing in the warm breeze of the fields and climbing their way down the rolling hills to reach the roads we tread.  We grow them in our gardens, harvest them from our farms and keep them in small pots near our kitchen.  They are available to us at every turn, reaching for our hands, encouraging us to seek their wisdom.

            As pagans and witches, we use herbs in a variety of ways, from the simple seasoning of our food to the many magical applications they provide.  We anoint our candles with them, grind them into incense, leave them as offerings on our altars and cleanse our homes with them.  We store them in our herb cabinets and apothecaries carefully, honoring them and their wisdoms.  Many of these herbs have correspondences with solar energy, ensuring success, happiness and fruitful rewards.  Every herb is infused with the sun’s light, the warmth of the summer days required to for them to grow.  They are, in a word, perfect for the Summer Solstice.

            2018 Midsummer - Litha Sabbat Box - Herbal Witchery

            As an integral part of our practices from ancient times to modernity, herbs are often one of the first easily-accessible tools for the budding pagan or witch, and a reliable source of magic for the advanced practitioner.  When we compiled this solstice box, we took particular care in curating items that would be of use for any level of practice.  Continuing with our theme from last year, we wanted to place a particular focus on the herbs themselves, including items that would be both practically useful and magically inspirational.  We can’t wait to send these your way!
