Review of ForevrGoddess Boutique

ForevrGoddess Boutique is a shop that includes a variety of beautiful boxes for many of your Pagan wants & needs. Their boxes are a one time only purchase. There is no need to sign up for a monthly contract.

 

They have sent us a variety of 4 of their boxes to review:

1) Yule/ Winter Solstice Box #01 Cookie Cutter $14.75 w/free shipping in USA.

2) Yule/ Winter Solstice Box #02 Yule Pendulum $13.75 w/free shipping in USA.

3) Brigid Heart Pocket Charm Box $11.75 w/free shipping in USA.

4) Comfort Goddess Box Set $17.75 w/free shipping in USA.

And, there is a free gift with every purchase.  Each free gift varies.

 

The boxes arrived…

 

 

in a regular mailing box with no obvious Pagan symbology on it. So perfect for those in the broomcloset and doesn’t matter for those who are out!

 

 

Excited to see so many boxes, I dig right in.

 

OUR FIRST BOX IS…

Yule/ Winter Solstice Box #01 Cookie Cutter

 

 

Informative Papers

 

The thing that you notice straight off is the amount of papers the box comes with. So you are automatically drawn to them and want to dive in. What wonderful reading it is! There are pages of information and it is all great, helpful, and about the holiday. The correspondences for the stones are given, yay! By now, you know I love that. They give the history, lore, and correspondences for Yule. They suggest ideas on ways to celebrate Yule Magickally and Mundanely. Since this is a box for a Yule Cookie Cutter, there is a recipe for “roll out” cookies. There are some coloring pages included for fun. Then there are two pieces of lovely parchment paper included. These are Spell & Ritual Worksheets. Gorgeously set up. The spell sheet gives a quick guide on the bottom, for those new to the craft, or those who just need a quick reminder, on pointers to recall on writing a spell. The Ritual worksheet has a box to help you layout your altar. To help with your worksheets, there is a page on how to use any Magickal Workings Box by ForevrGoddess and when to craft a spell. The information on these sheets is informative and helpful. I thought, from the amount of papers, it may be overwhelming. I found the pages to be filled with fun things I can do, either by myself, or with my family.  They are anything but overwhelming! They really are a welcome treat. They add to my knowledge bank and fun.

 

Love Candle

 

 

The Candle is from Crystal Journey Candles. It is Reiki Energy Charged. Each candle comes with an affirmation. They say what fragrances were used in it. They give the name of the Candle. Instructions on how to charge your candle are provided. Precautions on candle use are given. They even say to use the candles in love & light in which they were created in and they wish you luck on your journey toward the light. This candle is called Love. It is a beautiful shade of red. The scent is not overwhelming but light and pleasing.

 

Yule Herbs

 

These are a Magickal Incense Blend made by ForevrGoddess Boutique. It’s their own blend of herbs and spices and it smells wonderful. Just like Yule! A wonderful winter’s day! They send you a generous amount. It can be used in bonfires, rituals, & spells.

 

Yule Stones

 

 

Included are 5 stones: Rose Quartz, Crystal Quartz Point, Citrine, and Serpentine. They are nice sized, polished stones. All vibrant colors.

 

Cookie Cutter

 

 

The highlight, and probably the funnest part of the box, is the cookie cutter and making the cookies! And what fun it is!! You can use the recipe the box comes with, look one up on the internet, or use an old family recipe. The cookie cutter itself is an adorable snowflake shape. Good quality metal, not flimsy or thin. Fun to use with or without kids.

 

Our Second Box Up is…

Yule/ Winter Solstice Box #02 Yule Pendulum

 

 

Informative Papers

Once again I am impressed with the paperwork. I am really blown away. It comes with the correspondences for the stones. Your yule information is all there. Then there is a beautiful Pendulum worksheet on parchment paper that lays out what you need to chart out when working with your Pendulum. The page gives information on the bottom on how to craft a spell. Not only that but a Pendulum worksheet information guide page is given with ideas and instructions on how to use your pendulum and your pendulum worksheet. I think they got you covered!

 

Love Candle

 

 

This is the same red candle that is included in the Yule/ Winter Solstice Box #01 Cookie Cutter by Crystal Journey Candles.

 

Yule Stones

 

 

These are the same Yule Stones that are included in the Yule/ Winter Solstice Box #01 Cookie Cutter.

 

Yule Herbs

 

 

These are the same Yule Herbs that are included in the Yule/ Winter Solstice Box #01 Cookie Cutter.

 

Yule Pendulum

 

 

This is a handmade Pendulum that shows the shop owner’s lovely craftsmanship. The word Yule with a Goddess symbol is hand-stamped on metal on one side with adorable reindeer and snowflake charms. Paired with beads, a quartz point, and citrine. These are connected on a chain to a beautiful pendulum hand filled with ForevrGoddess special blend of Magickal Yule Herbs.

 

The Next Box Up is…

Brigid Heart Pocket Charm Box

 

 

Informative Papers

 

They tell you everything that is in the box and about everything that is in side the box! There is information on Brigid herself. Correspondences on the crystals/stones for Brigid included. A sheet on how to cleanse your crystals/stones & charge your crystals/stones is included. ForevrGoddess provides a sheet of information on creating a crystal grid. They even suggest places where you can find good, quality information on further studies about crystals/stones.

 

Angel’s Influence Candle

 

 

A Crystal Journey Candle. Gorgeous shade of blue with a wonderful scent. This candle is called Angel’s Influence.

 

Rose Incense

 

 

Ahh the smell of Rose Incense in the air. 50 sticks plus a holder by Morning Star. The holder is a very cute flower tile. The incense are of excellent quality with a heady aroma.

 

Brigid Heart Charm by Deva Designs

 

 

Wonderful blessing/devotional coin. Back says, “Remember You are Blessed.” Something to help us through those tough moments in life. Coin is thick and has heft to it. Small enough to carry in pocket, wallet, purse. Nice to flip around in hand or rub as a reminder during those times we need confidence.

 

Blessed Brigid Bag Stones

 

 

A mix of rough and polished stones. Good sizes. There are 5 in all: Rose quartz, Unakite, and Gold Pyrite. These were all chosen in honor of Brigid. The correspondences and information are all listed on the pages given along with the box.

 

 

The Fourth Box is…

Comfort Goddess Box Set

 

 

Informative Papers

 

 

The sheets for Comfort Goddess explain what you will find in the box. Each item is described in such detail that you even know the company name. Each individual crystal has it’s correspondence listed. ForevrGoddess discusses ways in their sheets to bring the Goddess more into your every day life & ways to bring you closer to her. There is a beautiful original prayer and Spellwork sheet on parchment paper. The Spellwork sheet, as the others have, give you instructive hints on things to remember when writing your spell on the bottom of the sheet.  Helpful prompts and great blank spaces to add your information.

 

Joy Candle

 

 

This candle is also a Crystal Journey Votive called “Joy”. It so delicious you want to take a bite! Such a Vibrant orange.

 

Rose Incense

 

 

Same 50 sticks & holder of Morning Star Rose incense as in the Brigid Heart Pocket Charm Box.

 

Quartz Crystal Point & Botswana Agate

 

 

Excellent sizes. The Quartz Crystal Point is raw and over 1 ¾ inches long and over 1 inch wide. The Botswana Agate is nicely polished. And the correspondences for them are given in the information sheets.

 

Gemstone Comfort Goddess

 

 

Honey Calcite Comfort Goddess by Deva Designs. The first thought to come to my mind was that it looks funny. It’s an odd shape. Like it’s trying to look like a Goddess. I picked it up and OMGODDESS does it feel great in your hand. In any position. It molds to the natural shapes of the curves of your hand. No matter what spot you hold it in, it just fits snugly. You forget you are holding it, it does not give you hand cramps. You can meditate with it or just hold it for a long time and just feel it’s positive energy. The energy pours off of this Goddess figure.

 

Heart Seed Paper & Note

 

 

The heart seed paper is a beautiful idea to write your intentions for the coming year & use as an offering when you plant it, as suggested. The note paper tells you what flowers may grow from the seeded paper. A beautiful gift for you and the Goddess.

 

Over All Impression…

From the first box I opened from ForevrGoddess I thought they were beautifully packaged, smelled wonderful, and looked so peaceful.

The information packets that came with each box excited me. So much content on a variety of topics all having to do with the subject of the box. They give all the correspondences for the crystals and information on everything in the box or the theme of the box, which I find important. I have learned so much new information, gained many new ideas, and had some great crafting/baking hours! 

Doing the activities in the boxes are a ton of fun. From using the Yule Pendulum, to baking cookies, working a spell with my new worksheets, to making a Brigid Crystal Grid, there is so much to do. The prices are perfect and fair for all you get, and shipping is free in the USA. Plus you get a free gift with each purchase.

The items are all made of good quality, whether they are handmade by the store owner or premade. 

ForevrGoddess boxes are definitely Worth the Witch!

 

So…Who is it behind the scenes at ForevrGoddess running the show? Her name is Norma G. Clark and she has taken time out of her busy schedule to have a chat with PaganPagesOrg.

 

PaganPagesOrg (PPO): Hello Norma G. Clark!

Norma G. Clark (NGC): Hello Jennifer thank you for this opportunity to share the word about ForevrGoddess.

 

PPO: Our Pleasure. What brought the idea of the boxes to you?

NGC: We create boxes to fit your needs at the moment or a special need for family or friends. I offer the opportunity for buyers to see what we have for them to purchase and ask questions. I don’t hide our items, we open our boutique with ideas we create in our personal home, most of them you see before you in our boxes, we stand by quality, beauty of our products, and a unique approach to the Wiccan and Pagan lifestyle. We want them to share a unique experience with us on their spiritual journey.

 

PPO: How did you begin them?

NGC: Research.  I’ve gone through my references and resources and of course guidance by my Goddesses and Gods to see what there is need for. We’ve seen so many that cater only to certain things. We want to be the first to welcome all life stages happening; from Wiccan parents bringing their beautiful babies home from the hospital, to a young woman finding her 1st Goddess statue & finding magick within. We even deal with the negative by trying to help those find the light within.

 

PPO: How do you choose what goes inside your boxes?

NGC: I choose often for a specific need, or goal, or desire. We like being one of kind with our designs, though we’re delighted to get custom or specific requests, too. We are willing to create monthly boxes with theme ideas.

We carry our Magickal Sabbat Boxes, which are 3 – 4 types of boxes for celebrating 8 Wiccan Sabbats. They are designed as opportunities for you and your family to experience 1 of the Wiccan sacred Sabbat with us.

Comfort Goddess, for many women, at times, they need someone to guide them on their path. Though we vary from different parts of the world, and many have chosen so many different beliefs, we are all women created by the Goddess. I thought to create for someone who many women could lean on for support at any age. From a girl having her 1st blood moon, to a beautiful mother with 2 children snuggled next to her, to a wise grandmother accepting her role as crone.

Brigid Heart pocket charms boxes, these may be small, but think how a worry pocket charm can help guide you with these little words of wisdom, to lighten your day and inspire you to find the best in life.

 

PPO: Is yours a recurring monthly box?

NGC: Not now, we hope to soon. We would love to create a custom monthly box of any of our unique fun filled boxes. If anyone is interested in them, I’d tell them to send a private message to my boutique or Facebook. Our magickal Sabbat boxes,we were excited to just have created Yule & Imbolc. would make great recurring monthly boxes. Come explore our boutique for unique magickal boxes that can fit in your busy lifestyle to invite a little magick in your life.

 

PPO: Did you feel the pagan world was missing something to make you create your boxes?

NGC: Yes, there’s so much stuff out there for Wiccan and pagan beliefs. We wanted to stand out from the rest. Many of my clients are from various backgrounds of Wiccan and Pagan Beliefs. We cater to everyone from the novice to the more experienced. We love to show them they can create many blessings in life if they choose to look within themselves. We like a challenge to approach, and show our thoughts to help guide your journey to magick in life.

 

PPO: Do you sell other types of products?

NGC: Why yes we do, come celebrate Yule with us. While you do you will discover new spells, Goddesses, pendulums, unique bindrunes. We have various crystals and gemstones. Creative worksheets to teach and keep you organized. Fill your empty shelves with unique handmade gifts and jewelry. We have something to fit all your personal holiday and Ritual needs throughout the year.

 

PPO: On a personal note, what interests do you have?

NGC: Well that’s rather a long list..(laughing out loud.)

Well me and husband (Robert) have similar likes: rock hunting. We had a blast at Crystal Park, Montana harvesting our crystals for home and boutique this past summer. Creating jewelry, Wiccan handmade gifts, dragons, fairies, making pendulums and doing tarot readings. Reading books. Spending time with my 2 active children Gabriel, 6yrs and little Trinity, 1 1/2 yr old. We live your average family lifestyle, with a lil Magick and Goddess tucked inside.

 

PPO: Are you pagan? Can you tell us a little about yourself?

NGC: I’m Wiccan and so is my hubby. We’ve been practicing since we were teens. My style follows my spiritual path and what comes to mind. I live in a small rural town, Paris, Idaho with my husband, 2 hyper Children and a gang of critters. I now own my unique jewelry designing business for over 17yrs. I love to create new designs by looking at nature & cultural ideas for my Jewelry. Now I sell Metaphysical items. Unique 1 of kind designs.

 

PPO: Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers?

NGC: Why yes. Thank you for this opportunity to speak with us and learn about my little Metaphysical Boutique and spread the word about us. Blessings of love and light.

 

I’d like to thank Norma G. Clark for the wonderful interview and information on ForevrGoddess Boutique.

 

I’m going to add a personal note here… I can not help but feel like the Goddess Box was picked especially for me. I had no clue what boxes we were getting to review. I did not know we were getting this many or what we were getting. During the process of receiving items for the column you speak with business owners briefly.  Exchange some information that is needed such as addresses and interview questions.  During one of our Pre Boxes Being Sent conversations Norma from ForevrGoddess told me she just knows by speaking to people what they need… I believe she has a real talent. My free gifts, that are private, were picked for me, and they talked to me, directly. As this box did. I must admit, I am very impressed by ForevrGoddess Boutique, and especially by Norma.

Review of Spiritual Wake’s Mystery Witch Box

 

 

(logo for Spiritual Wake)

 

 

Spiritual Wake is an Etsy shop that offers a Mystery Witch Box for $15.00 plus Etsy calculates exact shipping to your zip code. This box is not a reoccurring, monthly subscription, but rather a one time purchase. You pay a one time fee for 1 box. Each Mystery Witch Box contains different items, such as, spells, books, jewelry, herbs, and more. You will receive 4 or more items depending on the value of each item in every box.  Each box is unique and different. 

 

PaganPagesOrg has received a Mystery Witch Box to review this month.

 

How it Arrives…

 

(Package the Mystery Witch Box arrived in.)

 

The box is a plain, nondescript brown box.  You get complete anonymity in the mail from the simple box. There are no pagan markings or symbols on the box. This is great for those who need the obscurity.

 

As Soon as you Open the Box…

 

(Box when first opened.)

 

A wonderful smell almost assaults you. You could not smell this wonderful aroma when the box was closed. It’s like, a surprise for your nose!  All you see is a folded piece of paper with glittering strands behind it.

 

What you See First…

 

(Glitter, contents, & instructions.)

 

As soon as you open the box you find the instructions on the top and they explain everything you will find in the box. Every item is listed, with directions on how to use them. They, also give ingredients to the bathbombs, which is helpful for those with allergies.

 

Right below the instructions, as you can see in the picture, the box is filled with strands of glitter. With this Mystery Witch Box, searching through the glitter for the hidden items is part of the fun!! Rummaging around with your hands trying to find what surprise is next. So what did we pull out first?

 

Red Candle…

 

(Red Candle)

 

The Red Candle is a wonderfully, full, thick votive. It is vibrant, deep red. The smell that comes from it is wonderful. Making the whole package aromatic. It is not a small cheap candle. It feels solid, dense.

 

Mala Bracelet…

 

(Mala Bracelet)

The Mala Bracelet is very cute. Made from plastic beads on elastic cord and stretches to fit all sizes.

 

Spell Bottle & Carnelian Stone…

 

(Spell Bottle & Carnelian Stone)

 

The spell bottle is an adorable size and the carnelian stone is very pretty. The directions included are very clear on what you can do with the spell kit. It says, specifically, what this spell kit is for. The instructions give you a few suggestions on spells you can do with the kit or leaves it open for workings of your own on the topic the kit was created & charged for.

 

The Rough Apatite & Labradorite…

 

(Rough Apatite & Labradorite)

 

The Rough Apatite & Labradorite are each a very good size. I would call them both “Chunks”. They are nice as altar decorations or home decorations. Good additions to anyone’s stone collections. I think the instructions, or maybe another sheet, should have given the meanings for them.

 

Bathbombs…

 

(Bathbombs)

 

These are a free gift. Who doesn’t like free gifts. Bathbombs are a nice, relaxing treat and they were unexpected. They came in cute shapes, especially love the stars, and cool colors.

 

(Bathbomb packaging)

 
However, I did feel the appearance of the bathbombs packaging may have taken away from the overall appearance of the box. Maybe placing them in an organza bag or similar would represent them better. I do understand that this would, however, add cost to the amount of the box.

 

(Full contents)

Since most of this box was not handmade, I scrutinized the cost of every item inside and added up what I thought was fair for the labor for the items that were handmade. After all my calculations, I feel this box is worth the price it is listed for. She did under-price herself on shipping on this one box and I hope that is an error.

 
The contents have a very nice overall appearance. My one issue was the packaging of the free gift, but that was insignificant. The glitter is cute and makes it like a party in a box.

 

The price is not expensive.  We would get another to see what goodies we would get next time!!  This box is Worth the Witch and PaganPagesOrg can stand behind this company.

 

So who is behind Spiritual Wake? and, where does she get her ideas?

 
Her name is Veronika Frederick and she spent a little time with us at PaganPagesOrg…

 

PaganPagesOrg: Tell us a little about yourself.
Veronika Frederick: I am Veronika Frederick an Egyptian based Pagan obsessed with cats. I began my journey as a kid inspired from things like Charmed and Practical Magic. I eventually fled an abusive relationship and began my shop as a way to regain control in my life and to help others. I sell a variety of jewelry, self care, and Pagan items. I live happily in Michigan and love the lake. I really hope that my shop can inspire courage, and good vibes. 
PPO: Where are you from?
VF: I was born in Utah and lived there through elementary school, then spent my teens in Illinois and majority of my twenties have been here in Michigan. I am in love with Lake Huron.
PPO: What type of Witch are you, yourself?
VF: That’s tough, Eclectic Kemetic is likely the closest term. I personally believe and incorporate Ancient Egyptian Deities. However I do not mimic their way of religion. I’m very earth based. Overall though I tend to think I am just a crazy cat lady witch.
PPO: What are some of your interests?
VF: Anyone who knows me would all say my thing is CATS. I’m an intense cat mom, protective, and loving. My familiar is one of my cats her name is Ingrid and she works closely with me for anything that is shop related. She is the happiest, purr machine out there. I show her as one of my helpers on my etsy page, have her in photo shoots. (So I would recommend anyone really allergic to cats avoid my shop.) I’m eternally grateful that I ended up with Ingrid.
PPO: What do you feel the Pagan community is missing?
VF: Animal rights. Might sound a little odd, but there have been so many abusive and terrible things done to animals it makes my stomach churn. So I try to really show how to be a strong pet parent. Whenever I have spare $ I donate food to the animal shelters, and I sign petitions. I feel very strongly that animals need to be protected from the cruelty of people, and deeply wish more people, not just Pagans, would sort of pick up that fight also. I have also rescued a lot of cats and dogs, since I was kid up until now. Ingrid is a rescue.
PPO: What brought the idea of a Mystery Box to you?
VF: I wish I could say something original, but actually I had ordered a witch box from another shop found myself disappointed and just ended up deciding I would do something better. I actually didn’t introduce this item until late spring if I remember right.
PPO: How did you begin?
VF: Well the boxes began with using old witch bottle jewelry I had made for a fair, then adding in some crystals, from there it’s … left a mystery. The shop though did begin as a way to regain control in my life, and to feel stronger. Something I try to incorporate in all aspects of my shop is self-empowerment and courage. My journey to Paganism started as a kid, but the shop was born from struggle. I left an abusive relationship, and it was messy, long process. I felt like any moment the entire world could crumble in, so I did what I have done all my life I turned to something creative that kept my hands busy.
PPO: How do you chose what to include?
VF: I work off of inventory, creativeness, and what supplies I have stored up. This ranges from homemade spells, sigils I make, to jewelry, and crystals. Each box has several items, usually whatever I feel inspired towards for that order. Depending on value the number of items can vary, anywhere from 4 or more items.

PPO: What other types of things do you sell in Spiritual Wake?
VF: I sell bracelets, necklaces, earrings, small pdf books, mystery witch box, and bath bombs/shower melts (I actually have been meaning to add more to the shop just haven’t had the time yet).
I’d like to thank Veronika Frederick for taking time from her busy schedule to talk with us at PaganPagesOrg.

Review of Box of Shadows

 

Box of Shadows is a recurring monthly Pagan Box subscription site. They offer three, very different, types of boxes. Each Box as different and interesting as the next, making choosing one a difficult decision! Their prices range from $24.99 to $44.99 + S/H.

(The Supreme Box by Box of Shadows)

This month I will be reviewing Box of Shadows “The Supreme” Box. At $44.99, it is described as being for the “Advanced Seeker,” based on the wheel of the year.

Arrival Package

(Arrival Photo)

My Box of Shadows came in the mail in an unassuming package. No Pagan graphics or any tells. This I like because I know many who are still in the Broom Closet and receive much of their supplies or goodies through the mail. They do not, however, enjoy seeing packages arrive with huge pentacles, or any type of Pagan symbols on the them.

Opening the Box

As soon as you open your box you are thrown into a feast for a lot of your senses. Your eyes feast on all the wonders in font of you. You automatically want to touch & grab at everything. The beautiful aromas of mints and spices tempt your nose. You feel the need to dive right in. So let’s do just that…

What do we grab first?

The Pamphlet

Box of Shadows sends a pamphlet with each box. Printed on beautiful, good quality paper. The presentation is excellent. The cover of the pamphlet lists the contents in the box. Inside, you will find a good deal on the meaning & history of Samhain, ideal magicks practiced on the holiday, and ways to celebrate. The pamphlet goes on to describe some of the other contents found in the box in detail that have a history, correspondences, or need instructions.

Bundle of Undressed Candles

You are given a nicely wrapped set of 5, different colored Chime candles. I am guessing they are just to have in your supply box to use when needed. You need to know Candle Magick yourself.

While Box of Shadows comes with great background information & a wonderful book, as well (reviewed later in the article), it does not give information (correspondences) on everything. As they state when you purchase the box, it is for the “Advanced Seeker”.

Palo Santo Chips

Large, 1oz Bag comes with full instructions and different uses for the chips written on the back of packaging label. What I appreciated was that, instead of rehashing the information from the packaging, Box of Shadows pamphlet actually gives you more, added information on Palo Santo Chips, that is completely different from packaging. They double your knowledge.

Incense of the Month: Myrrh



1 box of 10 incense cones by HEM. You will need to know Myrrh’s proper usage. Good brand of incense. Well known. Good quality.

Spearmint

Large 1oz Bag. The scent is marvelous. You can smell the freshness. I enjoy the packaging, the look is Victorian to me. There is information on the back of the label on some of the uses of spearmint. The pamphlet, once again, does that wonderful thing of giving added information, different from the packaging, on the herb.

Lapis Lazuli

You are actually given a good sizable stone. It is polished. The shape is pleasing & it fits lovely in the palm of your hand. It has a good weight to it. Will be very nice to work with. It’s correspondences are listed in the pamphlet.

Samhain Votive by Modern Magix

The aroma coming from this votive is heavenly. It is packed with herbs on top and the label lists the exact ingredients you will find on it. What I love about this candle, is that it is a Spell. The wrapper that gives the ingredients, also, gives the instructions on what to do with the candle for the Spell on Samhain. It is awesome.

Gemstone Pendulum

The pendulum feels nice in the hand and is weighted well. The stone is Gorgeous! I just wish I knew what stone it is. The pamphlet gives a wonderful Pendulum Scrying Instructional. It gives you information on what you need to know on how to cleanse, charge, and use your new divinitory tool.

Clarity Spray by Frequency

This is gemstone infused oil. The smell is herby & cleansing. I have never worked with anything like this before & find it interesting and look forward to learning more about it and how I can use it in my workings on a more daily basis. It seems, to me, a good addition to my craft. This item is listed on the table of contents but not described in the pamphlet. Box of Shadows does include the companies business card, however, with a 10% discount coupon.

Altar Cloth

One word “HUGE”!

Okay, more than one word…Beautiful. I was not expecting the delicately folded cloth to open to such a size or have such a wonderful pattern. It is a fantastic altar cloth.

A Copy of the Book “Samhain” by Diana Rajchel

Part of a series of books by Llewellyn that share the history, as well as, the modern information on the sabbat’s of the witch’s year. They give great information in the book, such as; the correspondences for Samhain in the back for quick reference. It has ideas on crafts to make for the holiday which range from fun things like costumes and pumpkin decorating, to Ritual crafts, like making Samhain incense. There are meditations, spells, divination, lore, and so much more packed into this 251 page book. After reading it, there is no way you will not have a clue about Samhain or Halloween!!

(Full Contents of Box of Shadows “The Supreme” Box)

Over All Impression…

Box of Shadows “The Supreme” Box gives you all you need to know about the upcoming Sabbat. Adding the book into the box is a brilliant idea. There is no better way to teach of a Sabbat! Their pamphlet, while it didn’t cover everything, was, I found, extremely excellent on the information it did give. Adding more information then the packaging already had to add to our knowledge. They were generous, they did not hold back on portions/size/volume. The quality of product is definitely there. The freshness of the herb, the brand of the incense. The packaging was on point. The price is phenomenal for all that you get. This box is definitely, well Worth the Witch!

Now just who is behind Box of Shadows? We got a chance to talk with Founder of Box of Shadows Chatonia Underwood

PaganPages(PP): What brought the idea of Box of Shadows to you? 

Chatonia Underwood(CU): I had been studying Wicca for a few years while I was also in college pursuing a Business Administration degree. This was when the subscription box craze had just started to gain popularity. One day a friend mentioned that she wished there was a Birchbox for pagans and all kinds of light bulbs went off in my head. 

PP: How did you begin the process of the subscription?

CU: It was a few years after I had the initial idea that I was finally in a place where I could pursue it. I had done tons of research online about how to start a subscription box business. I spent about a year putting the idea out into the internet to see if anyone would be interested. The response was overwhelming so with a lot of help from Cratejoy, we launched on September 1st, 2015. 

PP: How do you choose what to put inside the boxes?

CU: Brainstorming box contents is one of my favorite parts of running Box of Shadows. We select a theme that each box tier will correspond to and go from there. Supporting the pagan community is important to us so we source most of our inventory from other small, pagan businesses. 

PP: Is Box of Shadows a recurring monthly box subscription?

CU: Yes, Box of Shadows is a monthly recurring subscription. We also offer 3, 6, and 12 month pre-pay plans.  

PP: Are you, yourself a pagan?

CU: Short answer, yes. I consider myself a solitary, eclectic spiritualist. 

PP: What are some of your interests?

CU: I’m a nerd. :) I love comic books and video games. Harry Potter is my favorite book series of all time and I dabble with cosplay. On a more spiritual note, I read tarot and practice yoga (not as much as I should :) ). I love spending time in nature and have recently started studying holistic herbalism. 

PP: Do you sell other products?  

CU: We recently launched the Box of Shadows online shop. There you can find items that were included in previous boxes. As well as, specialty items made by some of our partners and basic supplies (candles, sage, incense, etc.). We hope to be a one stop shop for all of our customers needs. 

I’d like to thank Chatonia Underwood for the lovely interview.
