Welcome to Box of Shadows, a spiritually eclectic subscription box inspired by the Universe & earth's natural rhythms! Created with those new to a pagan path in mind. This box features essential supplies, altar decor, introductory books, and basic rituals. Contents are tailored to new Seekers, to help create & maintain a unique practice.
Q: do the boxes often feature white sage? :(Asked by Emma H., June 2021
As a metaphysical business, we are well aware of the closed practice of smudging and how the overharvesting of white sage has impacted indigenous peoples and the environment. The smoke cleansing bundles we offer are sourced from a well-vetted, local distributor. As our Circle grows, we've ensured that all of the herbs we offer are sourced ethically and have even gone as far as breaking relationships with vendors who are not transparent about their product's source. To further support sustainability, we only offer herbal bundles quarterly (January, April, & September).
Q: Merry Meet! I am looking for a subscription box that is vegan and animal cruelty free. I have ordered several boxes without asking, and have been saddened that both used animal products. Would just like to be sure before I buy this time.Asked by Thia K., June 2019
Merry Meet Thia! We carefully select items that are cruelty-free and
eco-friendly whenever possible. Very rarely do we include items made with
If you want to go beyond spiritual boxes: Take a look at Earthlove. There's an eclectic mix of products, a book each box (quarterly) several of which have concentrated on animal issues, and a choice of vegan or beegan (the only animal products come from bees - honey or beeswax).
You can request that no animal products be used in your bos. when you order, you can email or contact them and say that you do not want any animal products in the box. Their customer service team is very accomodating.

Q: Hi, I'm a secret witch, is there a possibility to get this box but have the outside cover be discreet?Asked by Oriyan Y., July 2020
Greetings! All of our subscription boxes arrive discreetly packaged inside a USPS Flat Rate envelope for our Circle Member's privacy.
I've been a practicing witch for 26 years, so I've seen, heard, read or done most stuff. This box was a nice collection of items that actually ended up being very fitting for my current situation at home. It was nice to get some new energy flowing, and I got a book I've never heard of, so that makes me happy too!
Update: Nov 2020
I cannot say enough good things about the Priestess level of Box of Shadows. It's informing and supporting my magical and pagan practice. I couldn't afford to continue all the subscription boxes I had, but I kept this one. It's that good. It fills both my self-care and spiritual needs.
I subscribed to the Priestess Box, and I have to say I am surprised each time. I love it. From the well-written newsletter that includes lore, rituals, spells, and sometimes recipes, to the beautiful and interesting variations of incense and useful objects. I am never disappointed, and always learning.
Thank you for sharing your experience, Joanne. We hope to remain a part of your practice. Blessed Be!
I bought my first box and i absolutely love it. The products were amazing. I will definitely be getting more!! There was a great assortment of goodies in the box, all of it was stuff I didnt already have in my collection yet.
I thought the Yule box was nice. I really love the Garnet obelisk as it is my birthstone. The Yule candle and jasmine incense smell really nice as does the cedar cleansing bundle. The only complaint I have about how this box was curated is that it has 2 incense holders which I really don’t need anymore of. The only other problem that I have is that the post says it was sent on 12/7 as priority mail 2 day. I just received my box today which is 12/17.
Thanks for your feedback, Constance! Unfortunately, there isn't much we can do regarding delivery once a package is in the hands of USPS. Due to the current health crisis, many shipping platforms, including USPS, are experiencing delays. We appreciate your patience with this matter. Thank you for being a part of Box of Shadows.
So now this company saying I threatened them. I demanded a refund. Sure their policy states no refunds but I didn’t think I would pay $45 for nothing but cheap stuff. What a joke. It’s funny how all their recent reviews are from unsatisfied customers. Karma will get them. Hope they go out of buisiness. Anyone scamming people like this company should be ashamed of themselves. I will not stop warning others
This month's box was pitiful. All the products were cheap and there were not very many. I will be cancelling my subscription.
We are very sorry to hear that you were disappointed in your November box. The products in our boxes typically exceed the price of the box itself. Our team works hard to provide a consistent experience each month; from the carefully selected items to all the information included in our Seeker's Guide. Cleary, we've missed the mark with you this time. We hope we have the opportunity to make it up to you in the future.
I was very disappointed that's all I can say about this box just absolutely disappointing
We're very sorry to hear that you were disappointed in your March box. It seems we've missed the mark with you this time but we hope to have the opportunity to make it up to you next month. If you have any specific notes on how we can improve going forward, please feel free to reach out to us directly.
This is my first box opening of The Initiate Box. It arrived on time and everything was intact. The cost compared to other similar companies is amazing as well as I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of items I received for only paying $25. I received an amazing smelling smudge stick, a candle votive, a pendulum, a garnet bracelet as well as an awesome looking alter box and some frankincense incense cones. Everything smells so good, I am beyond pleased and will be looking into other boxes this company has to offer.
I was really excited to get my first box!! When it arrived and I opened it the bottle of oil was broken. I emailed and stated that although the bottle was broken I love the way the oil smells.
I got a quick response and an apology. I've NEVER had customer service this great and quick.
I appreciate you immensely!! I am a forever customer
Honestly, I'm pretty disappointed. My favorite part of the box was the Modern Magick candle, but everything else was cheap and I could've purchase it for far less than the box total. I'm supposed to be getting my second box soon but I just received an email saying that my order should never have been gone through because they were already at their capacity for orders, which makes no sense because I already received one of my three boxes. They gave me a 40% coupon for my next renewal, even though I already placed a review saying I wouldn't renew so that was also a slap in the face.
Yule, which takes place every year on the winter solstice, is the year's shortest day. Though Yule marks the official beginning of winter, it is also when the days begin to grow longer. Many traditions consider this time to be the rebirth of the sun and a celebration of light, a time for reflection, resolution, and renewal. The December box will guide our Circle members through this season of light and show how light can be found even when times are the darkest.
Paganism attracts many because of its hands-on approach to self-transformation. Once we have the tools & learn to recognize the synchronicities, manifestation comes easy. Mastering the art of taking our lives into our own hands is a fundamental part of the spiritual journey. November's box seeks to teach members to recognize synchronicity, trust intuition, and create rituals that work.
