Beginners Box

 

The beginners box is curated as a magickal discovery box. Your first box will contain some of the basic items needed in general magickal workings. Its a great box to get you started in crystals, divination, energy, magickal bath, spell jars, spells involving fire and incense & candle magick.

Once you receive your first box, you subscription will get more in depth in the monthly topics. Every month covers a new magickal topic and they will never repeat.

The first parcel includes:

1 smudge set for use in a ritual smudging, home blessing or other form of purification. for directions on smudging and home blessings you can review my posts here 

1 packet of healing herbal bath salts for a magickal bath. Magickal baths are associated with the Element of Water. The act is a spiritual cleansing and centering activity that grounds us and prepares us for our ritual acts. Also known as ritual baths or spiritual baths, are used cleanse us and restore our balance and harmony with the natural world before we set out to use our will and intent in our rites, rituals, and ceremonies. Ritual Baths can also incorporate the use of candles, herbs, incenses, oils and, of course, bath crystals. download a purification ritual here

1 packet of Vervain Herb. Vervain resonates with the energy of Gemini, the planet Venus and the element Water. It is considered feminine in nature. Vervain is associated with Cerridwen, Isis, Thor, Jupiter. It can also be used in Midsummer celebrations. Vervain combined with any other herbs in magical work is believed by some to enhance the action of these herbs. The vervain plant may be bruised and worn about the neck for protection from both headaches and snakebites. This charm is also said to bring help to you when you need it, no matter how dire your situation. A fresh sprig carried on your person helps protect from baneful magick spells cast against you. Vervain may be planted or placed around property to protect it from damage by bad weather. Vervain may be used in rituals to Thor or Jupiter. It may be burned as an offering or infused into water and sprinkled on the altar for purification. In Hellenic rituals, the plants may be bundled and used to sweep the alter or ritual area or dipped into sacred water to asperge the altar or area. It can also be used in a wash to rid an area or person of negative energies and may be combined with dill for this purpose. Vervain may be used in love spells to rekindle a dying love. It may also be woven into bridal wreathes or carried in bridal bouquets to ensure love to the couple.

1 packet of Frankincense Resin. Burning frankincense is a suitable offering to any Sun God. Frankincense resin is useful for fumigating sacred space in preparation of any ritual as it burns away negativity and raises the energy of the space. Some believe this is the most powerful and useful incense for this purpose and it is used for exorcism as well. Essential oil of frankincense has been added to anointing oil used for rites of passage rituals, particularly for infants.
