Saint of the Month Box

Regular price $25.00 $0.00 Unit price per
Shipping calculated at checkout.

Please note: handling times start at 10 business days for these personally selected packages containing exclusive creations you can't get through any other channel.

Whether you're just starting to learn about saints and spirits in the hoodoo rootwork tradition or you've been working with them for years, I strive to delight you with something new and covetable to add to your collection with every box.

Since I've been working with saints and spirits my entire life, and since I later went on to spend the better part of a decade in grad school studying medieval and early modern traditions around, and portrayals of saints, I usually do manage to come up with something you haven't seen before to add to your devotional practices. I have got some pretty neat stuff squirreled away (some pretty weird stuff too lol).

I will usually announce the chosen saint or spirit for the month via the blog/social media, though sometimes it will be a surprise. I may also offer more than one option for some months. In cases like that, you'll be able to choose which of the available saints or spirits you want a package for by providing that info in the Customization Intake Form after you check out.

You can also use that form to provide any other info you want me to be aware of, for instance if you have any allergies to certain herbs. I will try to accommodate (though I *cannot* guarantee) any reasonable preferences or wishes you have.

Options

Standard box includes, at a minimum, a bottle of oil, a candle, a holy card or mini prayer booklet, brief history and recommendations for working with the saint or spirit, and a charm, medal, or curio. 

Deluxe box includes, at a minimum, a bottle of oil, a fixed, blessed, dressed, and decorated vigil candle, a holy card or mini prayer booklet, brief history and recommendations for working with the saint or spirit, and a handmade chaplet, rosary, or necklace.

Sources and Special Requests

Saints and spirits may be chosen from the traditional Catholic "roster" or may come from various folk traditions. If you ever have suggestions or requests for particular saints or spirits to feature, I'd love to hear from you! Drop me a line from the contact form to chime in.

You are welcome to purchase saint of the month boxes in advance, but be aware that your box will not ship until that applicable calendar month. (I'm working on setting up subscription options with recurring billing, but we aren't there yet.)

I'm happy to prepare these as gifts for sending to an address other than yours. If the security features in my payment processing software kick in and give you any grief about trying to ship to an alternate address, just contact me and I'll figure it out for you. 

SHIPPING / HANDLING TIMES: You should expect a minimum of 10 business days' handling time on this item so I can do the custom work on individually decorated and fixed candles, freshly-designed prayer cards, handmade chaplets, etc. This item does not come with a guaranteed delivery date or any option to specify one. Things like that have to be agreed upon and put in writing before you finalize an order for products or altar work. And as outlined in the shop policies and Terms of Service, once work has begun on a custom or personalized item, no cancellations or refunds can be made. 

The payoff for your patience is that you get fresh blends and powerful products made the old fashioned way, by hand and with focused intent, by a worker with 35 years of experience who is paying personal attention to *your* items. And that personal attention is my goal, not one- or two-day turnaround.

LEGALESE: As required by law, all items are sold as curios to preserve and teach the traditions of folklore and popular religion. I don't sell anything I don't use myself, though, and quite a few customers over the years have sworn by my traditional formulas since I started selling them in 2002.

Shipping/Handling/FAQs: Please click over to the Shipping/Handling/FAQs tab to read about handling times, shipping notification, and other terms of service, as your use of this site indicates your acceptance of these published terms, which include but are not limited to the following.

By using this site, you are stating that you understand and agree to our Terms of Service, including the following highlights:
  • handling times start at five business days minimum for all items  (excludes weekends and holidays)
  • posted handling times are estimates, not guarantees, and will vary depending on order size and amount of customization involved
  • all sales are final; we do not accept returns
  • any refunds must be initiated by us; chargebacks are considered theft
  • we will send a notification email when we purchase your shipping label for your packaged order, so when it's ready to ship, you know as soon as we know
  • we are not able to provide updates during order processing beyond this notification
  • any unusual issues affecting handling times will be announced on our website and social media channels
  • we don't send instructions for anything that doesn't say it comes with instructions, but there's lots of info at the blog
See the TOS page for more details.
HANDLING TIMES: Please note published handling times, which start at 5 business days minimum and will be longer for custom-finished items, large orders, and some specialty/extra strength formulas. You can expect a 10-day handling time for an order with one custom item, and longer than that if the order contains multiple custom items. Why? Two reasons:
One, I make all my formulas in tiny batches, decanting and praying over every oil order as it comes in, for instance. It's not a matter of just grabbing a bottle off a shelf and popping it into an envelope. And I stock only what I know I can use within a certain shelf life. That means I can have unexpected runs on formulas that use up my stock of an ingredient and it takes a few days for more to arrive, or I need to go to back of our acreage and dig up a certain root to go in your custom spell kit. The payoff for your patience is that you get fresh blends and fresh products, made by hand the old fashioned way, by a traditional rootworker with 35 years of experience.
Two, I live in the middle of nowhere and I have to expect time-sucking delays as par for the course, like the internet going down 'cause a cow broke the line, stuff like that.
USAGE: Oils are for prayer and ritual use; they are not cosmetics or perfumes. While some customers do use some dressing oils as anointing oils (which is not the same thing as wearing a perfume or cologne), they are careful to do a skin test first, since they know that all-natural does not equal hypoallergenic. If you need suggestions on how to use condition and anointing oils in the conjure tradition, see the Education link up top.
LEGALESE:  As required by law, all items are sold as curios to preserve and teach the traditions of folklore and popular religion. I don't sell anything I don't use myself, though, and quite a few customers over the years have sworn by my traditional formulas since I started selling them in 2002.
