Box of Shadows started out as an idea between two eclectic witches who wanted an easier way to access supplies and guidance for their craft. They both lived in areas where options for metaphysical stores & communities were few. The stores that were accessible were pricey and lacking the community our new witches desired. There needed to be a convenient, community centered way to bring craft provisions right to your doorstep. That is how the concept of Box of Shadows began!
Box of Shadows was created by pagans and is committed to making sure that our Circle Members are actively a part of the Box of Shadows experience. Subscriber feedback is the most essential component to making Box of Shadows a successful community.
The pagan community is going through a great insurgence of new witches right now. We aim to be a resource that focuses on the ever-important path to continued growth, over outward aesthetics.
Before Box of Shadows was even a concept, our eclectic witches used to commiserate about how expensive pagan tools and supplies could be. Then, we decided to do something about it! Our goal is to provide the best tools available while helping our Circle Members save money in the process.
Respect for our planet is a fundamental belief in most pagan traditions. Because of this, we choose packaging that is eco-friendly and/or biodegradable whenever possible. Our inserts are also printed on recycled paper.
We are well aware of the closed practice of smudging and how the overharvesting of certain sacred herbs has impacted indigenous peoples and the environment. With respect to this, the smoke cleansing tools we offer are sourced from a well-vetted, local distributor.
We also do not refer to herb bundles as "smudge sticks" in our printed media. As our Circle grows, we've ensured that all of the herbs we offer are sourced ethically. We have even gone as far as breaking relationships with vendors who are not transparent about their product's source.
At Box of Shadows, we consider ourselves a heart-centered business. Our mission is to bring light not just to our customers but also to our community by supporting other heart-centered businesses. By sourcing our box contents from our community when possible, instead of going through a wholesaler, your products come to you full of light and love.
