The Homegrown Collective is one of the most unique and fun subscription boxes I've come across! Each month they send out a Greenbox - full of organic goodies and intructions on how to make your own useful items with the materials they include. This month the theme is: "Olives & Herbs & Candles, OH MY!" (Thank you to The Homegrown Collective for sending me this box to review - I think it's my favorite Greenbox so far!)
The Box: The Homegrown Collective
The Cost: $39 a month plus $9 shipping (Free shipping and free month with annual subscription)
The Products: Green products and projects that allow you to be more self-sufficient.
Each box includes instructions for each project, and information about the benefits of the items in your box. This month's projects include an herb garden, and olive oil lamp, and my favorite - infused olive oil!
In addition to the Olive Oil, they included organic herbs and ingredients to make amazing infused flavors.

I love that The Homegrown Collective always includes top quality glass containers for each project. The infused olive oil will look fantastic in these bottles, plus I always reuse the glassware they send me. I have a bunch of flowers in the large mason jar from last month's Homegrown Collective on my dining room table right now!
With this jar and wicks, you have everything you need to make your own olive oil candle! You can even use herbs in the olive oil to make a scented "candle."
I do not have a green thumb - but I'm hoping I can make this kit grow! Everything is already measured out and the instructions are super clear - hopefully it's foolproof. Also, I love the chalkboard markers - I'm sure I will reuse them in the future!
Verdict: I love EVERYTHING in this box! I love the idea of making my own infused olive oil and I love that everything included to make it is organic. This is such a perfect spring box for me - I can't wait to start roasting veggies drizzled in my signature olive oil! What did you think of this month's Homegrown Collective Greenbox?
