At the end of April I got an email that I’d been waiting months on. I was finally off the waiting list for a Sabbat Box subscription! Immediately, I set my subscription up and then began the long wait for the my first delivery. When they announced that the Midsummer theme would be Herbal Witchery I got even more excited. Over the last year I’ve been branching out on my herb knowledge and trying to incorporate it more into my life.
Interesed in getting your own Sabbat Box? Visit their website and sign up for the waiting list! Many of the products included in each box can be purchased from their store so you can put together your own package of magickal workings.
Herbal Healers by Glennie Kindred
This book is by far my favorite item in the box. The small size of the book makes it perfect for storing and keeping on hand for any kitchen witch. Inside you’ll find information and uses for a variety of herbs along with some beautiful illustrations. Also included is information on the different preparation techniques for internal versus external use, dosage, and drying. It’s perfect for any herb kit and I’ll be adding it to mine!
Cup of Sun Tea by Cattail Apothecary
For the last ten years I have been using loose leaf tea to help with a variety of health related issues. From needing a pick me up to helping with insomnia, tea has been my go to. When I saw the bag of tea I was super excited. One of my favorite things to do when I’m visiting a new city is to find a place that sells tea so I can try all the different varieties. Getting this one in the Sabbat Box was perfect! I’m not particularly a fan of chamomile normally however this blend has a nice balance that prevents it from being over powering. Plus, the tea has a nice pink color to it from the hibiscus.
- Lemon Balm
- St. John’s Wort
- Orange Peel
Dream Balm by Herbal Moon Apothecary
The dream balm might be the most interesting item in this month’s box for me. I’ve always been someone that has either had vivid and memorable dreams, sometimes even prophetic, or ones that fade quickly once I’m awake. Attempting to journal them has been something I have been considering doing recently and now I have even more incentive. This balm is supposed to be applied to your temples and third eye before bed to help you fall asleep as well as protect and enhance your dreams. I plan to begin using it and journaling my experiences. I’ll share the results later this year.
I’ve been a fan of Herbal Moon Apothecary for a while now. My local apothecary carries their products and I was excited to see them included in this box.
- Olive Oil
- White Sage
- Palo Santo
Sabbat Box Witching Herbs
No Herbal Witchery box would be complete without some herbs. Sabbat Box put together four different ones that each represent a different one of the four elements. There are also two masculine and two feminine. This is a perfect addition to any herb kit or a great way to start one. Also included was a page to incorporate into your own grimoire or book of shadows. One sides contains lore and general herb information including different ways to put them to use. The other side has additional information on the four herbs that came with the kit and magickal uses.
The kit includes
- Willow Bark
- Informational parchment with inspiration and herb lore for your book of shadows
- Jute bag to use to hold your herbs or to use to incorporate into your magickal workings
Ascension Smudge Stick
This smudge stick from Wolf Spirit Sage has a variety of uses. It contains lavender, myrrh, and angelica.
Citrine Gemstone Set
The last item in the box was a beautiful piece of Citrine. It comes in an organza bag with an information card. Cirtine is a perfect stone to include in this Midsummer box!
