The Subscription Box Chronicles: Sabbat Box- The Samhain Box (October)

There are hundreds of subscription boxes out there & in my “The Subscription Box Chronicles” series I hope to showcase some of the more interesting boxes available & boxes that I enjoy that I have tried.

Today’s subscription box focuses on Sabbat Box- The Samhain Box (October)

Sabbat Box– a subscription box for Pagans, delivering unique Wiccan supplies & Pagan products each sabbat. Discover altar supplies, spell supplies, spell candles, divination tools, pagan books, incense, herbs, oils, crystals, jewelry, Pagan home décor & more, to enrich your spiritual path.

How Sabbat Box Works:

Step One: The concept for Sabbat Box is similar to other subscription box services out there. First, you sign up to join Sabbat Box. Pick a plan that is best for you. We offer “Sabbat to Sabbat plans” (your membership is renewed box to box), “Half Wheel Plans” (your membership renews every 4 boxes), or a “Wheel of the Year Plan” (your membership renews every 8 boxes). Save money by purchasing a Half Wheel plan or Wheel of the Year Plan.

Step Two: After you sign up for Sabbat Box, our team of curators will search for unique Pagan products to include within your box. Each box will contain an assortment of items, approximately 4-7 products (sometimes more), that are themed around each Sabbat. Sabbat Box is a service created by Pagans, for Pagans. Our curators have vast experience within the Pagan marketplace & will find the best items that will surely inspire you to live magically and further enrich your spiritual/magical practices.

Step Three: Sabbat Box will ship your specially curated box directly to you so you have it in time before each Sabbat. In fact, we schedule our boxes in a way that you will receive it 7-10 days before each Sabbat. This will give you plenty of time to discover the items within your Sabbat Box and put them to use how you wish. After you receive your box, you have the option of doing an unboxing video & share the video with us to get entered in to win our Super Sabbat Box Giveaway! Each Super Sabbat Giveaway Box is filled with even more magical products. We give one away each sabbat to Sabbat Box members!

By being a member of Sabbat Box, you will discover unique Pagan products to inspire you to celebrate the Wheel of the Year while helping to further enrich your spiritual path.

Assortment of items that you may find within your Sabbat Box are; spell supplies, spell candles, ritual tools, altar supplies, books on Witchcraft, Wicca and Paganism, crystals & gemstones, incense, tarot cards/runes/divination items, herbs, Pagan/witchy home decor, kitchen witch products, Pagan/new age themed bath & body products, & much, much more! Each box will contain 4-7 products (sometimes more), as well as an informational guide for the products included & information about the Sabbat.

This review is for the October/Samhain Sabbat Box:

SAMHAIN

Samhain occurs every year on the same day, October 31st. Some will celebrate Samhain from dawn of October 31st to dusk of November 1st.

There are many cultures that were known to observe the “final harvest”, typically when the first frost came, but it was the Druids & the ancient Celts who were the first to observe Samhain.  They considered Samhain one of the most important days of the year.

Samhain, also known as Allantide, All Hallow’s Eve or Halloween is one of the four cross-quarter sabbats located halfway between the Fall equinox (Mabon) & the Winter Solstice (Yule). Samhain (pronounced sow-wen), is a Gaelic word that means”summer’s end”. Samhain is considered a “fire festival”, & is the third & final harvest sabbat. Some Pagans consider Samhain to be the witches’ new year. It is also said that the veil between the living & the dead is at its thinnest during Samhain.

Samhain, the last of the three “harvest sabbats” is the time of the year where Pagans will honor their ancestors & those who have come before us. The veil between the planes is said to be at its thinnest, making this the perfect time for divination, divinatory magick, & “working” with the dead. Some will seek guidance from the departed, while others will feast from the final bounty of the earth. During Samhain, many Pagans will work protection magick to protect against malevolent entities flourishing about while the veil is thin. Samhain is also a great time to rid & banish what needs it, to protect what requires it, & to prepare for the dark & cold coming of the winter.

Everything
Box Synopsis
:

All of the items that we curated for you inside this box are geared towards, or will aid with…

Divination Work * Working Past The Veil * Protection Magick * Working w/ Higher Self * Assist With Samhain Rites, Spells, & Magick

“It is during “summer’s end”, on All Hallow’s Eve, (the witches’ new year), that we start to embrace the coming darkness. As the veil between the living & the dead fades, we call upon our ancestors & those who came before us, to guide us in the coming months, while honoring them during our rites. We honor the Earth for the final fruit that she bears, & reflect upon the sacrifices we had to make to get to where we are while prepping for the future. Though the future for certain may be unknown, & questions may arise, we as a cunning folk will use this time to work divination in effort to seek what may be coming our way.

When we as practitioners are presented with questions, or are heading into the unknown, we put our magick to the test, attempting to find the answers we need with divination, & we proceed to manifest the outcomes we desire with our own magickal pursuits. Divination is a practice that helps us to see our way forward as well as see where we have been. We use divinatory tools to intuit our place & to get our bearings of where we are on out path; it is a means to understand the conditions that surround us, while helping us to look within to make better choices that will ultimately make us most happy.

For this year’s Samhain Sabbat Box, we have turned our focus on curating a variety of items that may shine a light on the season’s darkening path– light not from the sky, but from ourselves. Since the magick & celebration of Samhain is versatile, & its significance often greater for most, we wanted to make sure that the items found within our flagship box were equally versatile in their use. On top of versatility, we have also curated items inside that go hand in hand with this sabbat in particular, tools to aid with parting the veil, protection magick, working with spirit guides, working with our higher selves, divination work & more.”

Miriam Jasper Crystal Pyramid Set w/ Bag & Info Card

Pyramid Bag
Pyramid

“Miriam Jasper, also known as calligraphy stone, Arabic stone, or script stone, is as beautiful as it is unique. This stone ironically isn’t a jasper. This stone is actually made up of fossilized shell, bone, & vegetation from an ancient lake that came under pressure when the Himalayas were forming. Known as a diviner’s stone, Miriam Jasper is said to carry protective qualities due to the hematite inside. It is also said to aid with automatic writing & accessing the akashic records during meditation. It is also known as “calligraphy stone” due to the flowing lines that run through the stone.”

The intricate details in this stone are mesmerizing & the tones are perfect for Samhain with its orangey burnt sienna & dark brownish black coloring.

Pendulum from Azure Green

Pendulum
This beautiful pendulum has a hidden inner chamber that unscrews from the base that you can fill with any herb of your choosing so that you can customize each divination session.

Pendulum Board

Board
“One specific practice that goes hand in hand with Samhain is divination. Divination is “the practice of seeking knowledge of the future or the unknown by supernatural means”. Since it is to be believed that the “veil” between the living & the dead is at its thinnest on Samhain, many believe it to be an opportune time to communicate with spirit, ancestors, guides or loved ones. Inside each box is a wood chambered pendulum set that contains everything you need to work this simple, yet effective form of divination this Samhain.”

I have always wanted to learn Palmistry- it has interested me for years but I never knew what books to get or how to go about starting it really. With this kit though, you can really jump straight into learning the ins & outs of Palmistry in your own home. The Booklet that comes with this beautifully stunning statuette while small, is incredibly packed full with a wealth of information guiding you to unlock all the wonders of this amazing art.
When not using the statuary, it looks lovely on my altar space/desk with all my crystals surrounding it. It’s a great little art piece, as well as a helpful learning tool!
