These wonderfully illustrated boxes are curated by the same people behind HowCurious? Ltd, and the full range can now be shopped on this store as well as www.acuriousbox.co.uk. Volume 2 of the Altar Essentials box was released in February 2021, after volume 1 sold out really quickly. Our curious boxes are really limited and once the volumes sell out, another one will be created with new items. If this is a gift, we provide a free handwritten gift card service, just enter your message into the box on the cart page. Altar Essentials Volume 2 contains the following items:
Protection Spell Candle with Citrine
This beautiful spell candle from Waxywix is for protection of self and home; warding off bothersome spirits and bad energies. The candle is infused with cinnamon and frankincense essential oils for personal protection and banishing negative energy. It also has jasmine and a cinnamon stick for cleansing and increasing positive energy, and a citrine crystal for providing quick relief from negative energies and nightmares. A protection spell to use with your candle is included in your envelope.
White Sage Smudge Purifying Stick
Sage has been traditionally used in native nations in North America for generations. It can be used as incense or for smudging which is a practice of clearing negative spiritual energy and restoring or maintaining energy purity. This sage is salvia apiana and is sourced in California from a sustainable supplier.
White Sage Incense Cones and Mango Wood Incense Burner
This beautiful fragrance created by these incense cones reminds us of sage smudge sticks. Each box contains 12 cones and a little metal dish to safely burn your cones on, we have also included a mango wood incense holder, the metal dish can be placed on this holder or it can be used for incense sticks. The design on the holder varies from box to box, and designs are chosen are random.
Palo Santo Resin Incense and Charcoal
The smoke emitted from resin incense have been used to clear negative energies for centuries and Palo Santo is particularly useful for protection and spiritual balance. Instructions for burning resin incense with the charcoal are including inside the box. Please note, the charcoal will be wrapped in a beautiful starry gauze bag, so some residue charcoal dust may escape through.
The Decorative Curious Box
Your witchy items are housed in a beautifully illustrated box measuring 24.5cm (W) x 19.cm (D) x 9.8cm (H), inspired by our curious boxes. Each box has a box identifier sticker, but don't worry, these can easily be peeled off and won't ruin your box if and when removed. To encourage you to relax and to re-use the box after unpacking, we have included a free pack of coloured pencils for you to decorate your box. Share your creative piece of work with us on social media, and be entered into a monthly draw to win a secret prize.
Please note: This box contains incense and candle items. When burning incense or candles, please use a relevant holder, do not leave burning while unattended and do so in a well-ventilated area. Please also keep it away from your pets and small children, and burn incense near an open window or in a separate room. Animals, especially dogs have a much more sensitive sense of smell than humans, and the scent of aromatherapy products like incense can bother them. In addition, keep any incense out of your pet's reach so they don't accidentally ingest it.
