The Witches Roots for June 2019, Token of Light, focuses on one of my favorite flowers: calendula (marigold).
I am happy to see the date included on the bottom of the Token of Light information page (the date is not visible in the image below, I am working on adjusting the code for the image gallery display).
June’s candle, crystal, herb, incense, and oil are all fitting for the celebration of Litha. The affirmation spell candle, The Golden Glow, is dressed with calendula and the included affirmation is perfect for initiating summer solstice rituals.
My pebble of red tigers eye has bands of iron inclusions and the shape reminds me of a talon or a raven’s head. I’ve been seeing the raven quite a bit recently in stones. Odin as well, more recently. This stone has a wonderful energy and I feel it calling to me.
Who doesn’t like calendula? This herb is a workhorse, with multiple culinary and magical uses. A fine example of both is manifested in the Solar Plexus herbal tea (I will review the tea at a later date).
The lemongrass ritual rope incense has a powdery lemongrass aroma – pleasant but not overpowering.
Solar Sight ritual body oil is a blend of fractionated coconut oil, bergamot, chamomile, and lemongrass, with calendula and lemon verbena herbs. Also included are a Lemurian quartz and Horus magickal oil from the Witches Moon’s personal cabinet of witchery. Solar Sight’s essence is airy, clean, and perfect for summer.
The final two components of The Token of Light box are a candle holder and the Sun’s Token pewter pendant. I’ve been looking for a taper candle holder so this is a nice surprise.
The Sun’s Token pewter pendant is weighty but small enough to use as a clothing or Book of Shadows adornment. The inscription reads: “My spirit is strong and shines like the sun”.
June’s box is full of high-quality useful items, as I have come to expect from The Witches Moon’s subscriptions. I look forward to the July box!
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.
