Continuing in the theme of a very magickal month, we have another unboxing that is new to PopHorror: the Hag Swag box. I have followed Hag Swag on Instagram for a while now and have always loved the aesthetic of their box. Not only is it magickal, but the look of it reminds me of a powerful witch that lives alone in a dark forest cottage. You’d walk up and see a fire circle in the front with a big cauldron hanging over the top of it. It really has an air about it. Check out the unboxing video below, and then keep reading for more information about the items inside!
First off, I want to send a huge thank you to Hag Swag for sending us the March Astral Magic box to open for you!
The theme of the March 2019’s Hag Swag box was Astral Magic, which includes astral travel and astrology. Astral travel is more well known as an out-of-body-experience, such as floating above your body and seeing what is going on around you as you sleep. It is said that when you astral travel, you can go anywhere in the world or the universe, returning to your body as long as the tether between your body and astral self remains intact. Astrologists study the positions of celestial bodies and their influence on behavior and life choices.
First out of the March 2019 Hag Swag box is an astral projection vinyl decal, showing an illustration of the astral self leaving the body to explore the cosmos. To aid in your travels is the Hag Swag Astral Dreams Tea. This herbal concoction is to increase psychic abilities and open the door to lucid dreaming (being aware and in control of your dreams) and astral projection. You should drink the tea before bedtime, but is not recommended for use during pregnancy or breastfeeding.
Also in the box was a gorgeous piece of opalite. Keeping in with the theme, opalite is used to enhance psychic abilities and to induce visions. It is used for dream work, spiritual communication, and when placed on your crown chakra, it can enhance metaphysical skills. Not to mention, it is a GORGEOUS stone. It has a shifting light and color throughout the stone, a dreamlike quality in itself.
The next items out of the Hag Swag March 2019 box is something from The Witchy Stitcher, a zodiac embroidery kit that comes with everything you need to create your zodiac design and constellation, with the tutorial and patterns available on the Witchy Stitcher website. Also included was an enamel pin featuring a lesser used form of magic called Shadow Magick. The pin shows a hand creating a goat in shadows. The paint on the pin is perfect with no paint bleed-over.
The next items take us straight into the cosmos. First up is Star Dust ritual oil that is chock full of shimmer and fit for Ziggy himself. This oil can used used to dress ritual candles or added to your skincare routine. The scent is caramel sweet, and the oil feels really good on the skin. You can also add it to your bathwater or wax warmer for a yummy, star-laden treat.
Hag Swag wants you to bathe among the stars with a gorgeous galaxy bath bomb the blue, green and black of the night sky. This bath bomb will fizz you into another galaxy and smells lightly of coconut oil, although the scent could change once dropped into he water. Also, little color balls dropped everywhere from inside the box, so be careful with those. Speaking of the cosmos, take the galaxy from the bathroom to any room of your house with the mindful magick Cosmos candle, which is hand poured soy and smells of lemon, basil, lavender and rosemary. The top is golden with stardust!
The last items in the box are of the herbal persuasion. First is a bag of elder flower which is used in rituals for prosperity, protection, healing and sleep. It can be worn in a small sachet or hung over doorways to protect from evil of all kinds.
The last two things are to be used together: bricks of charcoal and Astral Travel loose incense, which contains resins, herbs, oils and woods that are all organic. This loose incense is used to induce astral travel and lucid dreaming.
That is it for the amazing March 2019 Astral Magick Hag Swag box. I absolutely loved this one… even the packaging was just gorgeous. The Hag Swag box is $48.26 US or $64.99 Canadian. The items are handmade, themed and full of magick. If you would like a box for yourself, you can shop their website HERE. If you love magick and self care, this is a great box for you.
