The Village Witch January 2021 Sub Box Review

Hello Readers!

January 2021 has not quite been what we all expected, but the one thing we can always rely on is the delivery of the January 2021 Sub Box from The Village Witch! Without further ado, here is my review of this month’s sub box from The Village Witch.

This sub box was centred around the theme of transition and transformation and included a range of items which can aid you in working towards your goals for 2021, as well as working upon and taking care of yourself – something I feel like we all need right now. Here is what the box included:

Handmade & blessed Transformation Aura Spray (worth £12.99)
Handmade & blessed Imbolc Powder (worth £5.50)
Handmade & blessed Transformation Ink (worth £5.50)
Handmade & blessed Kick Up The Arse Oil (worth £5.50)
Handmade & blessed Self Love Cleansing Salt (worth £4.00)
Handmade & blessed Kick Up The Arse Incense (worth £5.99)
Handmade & blessed Imbolc Floor Wash (worth £7.99)
Handmade & blessed Self Love Spellvelope (worth £5.99)
Butterfly Suncatcher (worth £6.99)
Dreamcatcher Keyring (worth £2.99)
Pink Candle (worth 50p)
Yummy Treats (freebie)

What a box! The Village Witch Sub Boxes cost £30 those in the UK, and £45 for international customers and it is evident through this list the amazing value of this box! Yet, as amazing as at the value of the box, we are not here today just to talk about money (as great as the value is!). Therefore, here are my thoughts about the box!

My Favourite Item

It is always hard to choose a favourite item of any of The Village Witch Sub Boxes because they are all so high in quality, but I am going to try each month to choose just one that really catches my eye for whatever reason. So, here goes! My chosen favourite this month is the Transformation Aura Spray! I am a bit of a lover of their Aura Sprays in general, but there was just something about the name and the smell combined which just filled my head with wish like thoughts and I instantly imagined if this was what fairytale pixie dust smells like in movies (as silly as this may sound). It had that crisp but bubbly sort of smell to it – simply divine.

Biggest Surprise!

The biggest surprise for me this month was certainly the suncatcher! If you have watched my video above, it is clear to see how much I loved this Butterfly Suncatcher and how appropriate it was for this subscription box. Not only did the butterfly itself fully match the theme of transformation, but it was beautiful and I cannot wait to be able to put it up once the weather improves here in the UK.

My Plans for the Box

OK! Here comes the fun part – how I will be using the products this month! It is clear to see that with the items within this box, a little R&R is certainly in order, and what better time to do this than the New Year. Like many, I have set myself a wide range of goals to tackle head on this year and I will be certainly using the Transformation Ink and Aura Spray when setting my intentions and proceed to use the Kick Up The Arse Oil and Incense at intervals when I need a little boost of motivation. Imbolc is coming up very shortly, so I will be keeping these items to the side for now until the big day and use them on Imbolc to commemorate the day.

I hope you have enjoyed reading about this subscription box from The Village Witch this month and I will look forward to receiving my next box in February!

2021 Witchy Goal Ideas

Hello Readers,

Welcome to 2021! After the whirlwind of 2020, January is the perfect time to look back, reflect and ultimately plan for the year ahead. With that in mind, I have listed 5 witchy goals here that you may want to include in your New Year Resolutions.

Make time for magic

My number 1 tip for 2021 is to make time for your magic or your path. If 2020 taught us anything, it taught us that time is precious and it is incredibly easy to lose sight of what is important to us or get caught up in external issues that we cannot enjoy what is important to us.

Therefore, this year, why not to try and dedicate a little time each and every day to magic. 10 seconds a day may be all it needs to help you reconnect to your path. A couple of ways to make magic is to include it in a current morning or evening routine; choose a couple of magical activities you can practise at the same time each week (ie magical cleaning) or finding the magic in the mundane.

Find the magic in the mundane

The last point brings me nicely to my second witchy goal of 2021 – finding the magic in the mundane. Witchcraft many moons ago was not intended to be a path where you have to follow 1,000 steps before you can begin your magical working. Sometimes, the most effective method is the one where you go back to basics and open up to the natural magic already around you.

Cooking a meal, cleaning your bedroom, brushing your hair, going for a walk. All of these sound pretty mundane – an activity which anyone can accomplish in any given day, yet they are all magical if we want them to be. Cooking allows you to spread love through food to your loved ones, and depending on the meal, could even be healing! Brushing your hair or getting ready in the mornings can be a form of self care/self love – a spell in itself.

Start using what is around you

Whilst using your hair brush, it is also important to remember the other items around your house that you can use within your magical workings. Whether you are beginning your journey or you are a seasoned practitioner, you have everything you need to magic up the perfect spell.

No spell or jar candles? How about that Yankee Candle on your fireplace or a tealight! Run out of hyssop in your magical stash? Have you checked your kitchen cupboard for rosemary? Magical and Kitchen Herbs are exactly the same! Has your pendulum snapped? Why not use a necklace instead!

Learn and practice a new skill

Nobody is perfect and no doubt there is always something that someone else can do better, magical or not! However, they do say practice makes perfect, so why not dedicate some time in 2021 to learning or developing a skill! Perhaps you need to brush up on your tarot card meanings, or (if you are like me), aren’t that amazing at seeing auras. Just 5 minutes a week can help boost your skills.

Say thank you/gratitude

As cheesy as it may sound, my last goal idea for you this year is to say thank you more. Whether you need to say thank you to yourself, your loved ones, your ancestors, guides, deities, servitors, the earth itself! You can never say thank you too many times, and what better way to spread happiness and love than appreciation!

Anyway readers, that concludes my 5 Witchy Goal ideas for 2021! Will there be any from the list you will be tackling this year, or any others I have forgotten?

Have a magical week everyone.
