MSA Quarterly Box Ships Thursday + Updates

One of the first items I knew I wanted to get in the MSA01 box was a great smelling fall candle. I had tried quite a few candles that I thought could work, but as soon as I found this Raw Naturals Chai Latte candle, I knew it was THE ONE! I love the spicy natural scent, and the wood wick that crackles is such a nice touch.

I let Quarterly know that this candle was my top choice for the box, and I was very happy when they let me know it was a go for the box! (Sometimes the price points just don’t work out with items for the box, other times we just don’t hear back from companies in enough time, and sometimes a company can’t commit to the quantities we need in the timeframe). Anyway – this was one of the first items confirmed for the box!

If you tried and loved the Chai Latte candle and want more, (or if you didn’t get a chance to get the first MSA box), Raw Naturals is offering My Subscription Addiction readers 50% off their entire orders for the rest of this month!

Use coupon code MSABOGO to save 50%!

If you want to try out other products here are some of my other favorites from their line:

Raw Naturals Items

In addition to the 5 oz candle included in the box, they also offer large 18 oz candles ($48) and Diffusers ($48).

Raw Naturals Diffuser

I love the packaging of these diffusers! I’ll probably snag a few more for holiday gifts.


And here is the large candle size versus the small candle that was included in the box.

My favorite scent is of course the Chai Latte, but my runner-up favorites are the Peppermint Basil (it has much more peppermint in the scent, with a hint of basil), the Vanilla Bean (a classic vanilla scent), and the Lemon Tree (I love all things citrus!).

Are you going to try out any new scents with this coupon?

  1. yikes! Just saw the 50% off coupon TODAY…. 10/31. I’d better get cracking and place an order for another chai candle (love!) and maybe a peppermint for Christmas. So much better than the fakey pine scented candles out there.

    Really looking forward to the next quarterly box – MSA02!!

  2. How big (width and height) is the small candle? I’m wondering if it might fit inside a big glass candle-holder or hurricane glass. I’d love to try these, but we have a houseful of curious cats, and I don’t trust them not to light themselves on fire. :p

    • 2.5 inches diameter, 2 inches tall.

      Hope that helps!

      • Thanks, Liz! I’m sure I can figure out a way to make it work…picked up a couple with that great discount. For gifts, of course….

  3. I also would like to place a vote for a lovely diffuser in the next box. Closer to spring a wind chime might be an idea.

  4. I purchased four of the large candles today using the MSA code. Their site is so easy to shop. I love the Chai candle so much that I bought another in the larger size. I also ordered Jasmine, Ambrosia, and Peppermint candles. If I can bear to part with any, I just might have kicked off my Christmas shopping with these great candles!

    • My parents are closing on their new house this week. Depending on how fast these ship, one would make a wonderful housewarming gift.

  5. Thanks for such a generous coupon. Candles are my favorite. You saved me $72!

  6. Liz, is there any promo codes for new subscribers for your quartley box right now ? i want to sign up !
    thanks 🙂

    • Unfortunately I don’t believe there will be any new coupons this month.

    • If you go to and watch the video, at the end they give you a coupon code for $5 off.

  7. Liz-
    I want to buy a few chai latte candles, but I was wondering if the big ones burn evenly since there is only one wick in the middle. Let me know how the big one burns, so I can decide to stick to the little ones or buy the big ones.


    • I just lit the big candle right now – I’ll update you soon!

    • So far I’ve had the candle burning for about an hour and the wax is melting evenly with maybe 1/4 inch of wax on the edges that isn’t melting yet. Hope that helps!

  8. Thank you for sharing this awesome coupon code. I decided to sit down for a cup of tea, enjoy my candle from your box and check my emails on my phone for the first time today. I was just thinking I needed to check their website to order more. I am picking up more Chai and a few other scents. Thank you so much. You saved me a lot of $$$ on these great candles. You made my day

  9. Peppermint basil!!! I need to resist. I’m enjoying the extra discounts you’ve been providing us.

  10. Ooh, thanks for the great coupon! I missed the first box, and I’ve been dying to try that scent!

  11. That was the best candle ever! I couldn’t resist. That coupon just saved me $60!!

  12. I’m still mad at myself for not getting your first box, but I love that you have given us coupons for almost everything included! Now those of us who didn’t get your amazing first box can still try everything in it at a reasonable price! I’m snagging a few candles right now in chai latte and vanilla bean, and I can’t wait for your next box!

  13. Thank you so much for sharing the coupon! I was bummed that I missed out on the first MSA box, especially because of the candle. Now I’m going to use the coupon to get one of the large Chai candles!

  14. Wow, that 50% off code is awesome! I’m definitely going to pick up some more chai latte candles. I love to light one while I’m working from home, it makes me feel like I have a little autumnal fire.

  15. I might just have to gift the smaller candle from the MSA box and purchase a large one for myself.

  16. Casting a vote for the diffuser in an upcoming box!

    • I’ll be vote #2 for the diffuser!

      In the meantime I’ll be placing an order to try the jasmine mint & ambrosia fig. yummy!

    • Vote #3! I was actually going to post “not specifically looking for spoilers but any chance the diffuser might show up in a MSA box??”
