The Witches Roots May 2019 – Wisdom of Athena

Artwork: Olive Herbal Grimoire Page
Crystal: Lapis
Herb: Olive Leaf
Incense: Five-Pointed Star
Mini Spell Candle: Victory
Ritual Body Oil: Athena
Other Items: Athena’s Wisdom Altar Plaque, Spirit Owl Pewter Pendant

My Thoughts
Wisdom of Athena, The Witches Roots box for May 2019, really strikes a chord with me. Olives and olive products are a favorite for many reasons, so I am pleased May’s compilation includes this fruit. Perhaps it is no coincidence that I love olive because I am also in tune with Mercury, garnet, iolite, moss agate, and owls.

Adoration of olive aside, I am absolutely enamored with the Olive Herbal Grimoire Page. The relevant colors manifested for this artwork are stunning – shades of blue, green, and purple on an earthy background.

Lapis is featured this month and my stone has opulent bands of gold ringing the entirety, with a wispy central band of creamy white. To my eye the pattern is reminiscent of Jupiter’s banding.

The included pouch of olive leaf is a generous size, as with all herbs in The Witches Roots. There is a nice variation in size and breakage, with a few whole pieces amongst the leaves. Side note: Olive leaf tea is delicious, though not everyone enjoys the nuances. A quick Google search will return a myriad of tea recipes.

Scented with apple, Five-Pointed Star (not pictured) might be the first stick incense I am tempted to burn. It has an alluring aroma – simple, clean, and not overpowering. Funny enough, it somewhat reminds me of the Strawberry Shortcake dolls from the 1980’s.

Matching the Lapis stone perfectly, the mini spell candle, Victory, is vibrant blue and unadorned. I enjoy receiving plain spell candles on occasion and I appreciate these high-quality creations, regardless of embellishment.

Athena is the oil for May and has been infused with almond, basil, and green tea oils. Bay leaves, olive leaves, a Lemurian quartz, and Victory magickal oil from the Witches Moon’s personal cabinet of witchery have also been included. Athena’s aroma profile is herbal and slightly sweet with a subtle earthy undertone.

A Spirit Owl pewter pendant is the adornment for The Witches Roots May 2019. The necklace is well-made, includes an adjustable cord, and has an inscription on the back that reads “Spirit is close. Trust guidance and visions”. Owl is my spirit animal so receiving this pendant is very meaningful for me.

The final item in the box is the Athena’s Wisdom altar plaque. This unique piece of altar art showcases Athena on one side, with an owl on the reverse side. I will have a hard time deciding which to display!

The Witches Roots is a monthly subscription containing high-quality items centered around natural herbal witchcraft. The current US price is $29 a month, including shipping.

The Witches Roots April 2019 – The Granted Wish

April 18, 2019
Posted in

Artwork: Blue Cornflower Herbal Grimoire Page
Crystal: Honey Calcite
Herb: Blue Cornflower
Incense: Lavender Sky
Mini Spell Candle: Wish Upon
Ritual Body Oil: The Fae
Other Items: Celtic Butterfly Pendant with Chain, Faerie Incense Cone Holder

My Thoughts
April’s box is my favorite Witches Roots offering to date. While this is only the fourth box in the subscription series, every item included in The Granted Wish feels like a granted wish.

The Blue Cornflower Herbal Grimoire Page contains detailed metaphysical knowledge for the featured herb. These beautiful and enlightening pages are a welcomed addition to my Book of Shadows.

Tumbled honey calcite is the crystal for April and I mistakenly took it for golden rutilated quartz at first glance. Though the piece is small, it emanates a luminous energy and is fascinating to examine in sunlight.

One aspect of The Witches Roots box that I’ve come to love is the inclusion of a large bag of the monthly herb. The cornflower for this month is a vivid sunset bluish-purple.

Lavender Sky is an intriguing name for the cone incense. Unfortunately the information sheet does not list any ingredients.

Wish Upon, the mini spell candle, is a delightful golden yellow and is adorned with cornflower petals and glitter. The contrast between the golden beeswax and bluish-purple cornflower is striking.

The oil for April, The Fae, has been blended with fractionated coconut oil. Containing almond, jasmine, and chamomile, along with Truth Serum magickal oil from the Witches Moon’s personal cabinet of witchery, this amalgam has a luscious aroma with predominate notes of almond. Blue cornflower, jasmine, and lavender herbs, with an added Lemurian quartz, float bewitchingly in the oil.

Rounding out The Granted Wish are my two favorite items – a Celtic butterfly pendant with chain and a faerie incense cone holder.

I am still delighted with this enchanting offering from The Witches Roots. Here’s hoping that the value of these boxes lasts!
