This is a review of the large Mindful + Mystic box.
This month's theme is Hamsa + Protection, and I am so happy about this theme! My mother is a big fan of the evil eye, she has them everywhere in her house, car, jewelry, etc. The hamsa (meaning "Hand of God") is used to deflect the evil eye, so I decided a while back to collect them. Bring it on, Mom! This information card lists all the items you may have possibly received in your package, but not all subscribers receive the same things.
This sheet also came in the package, explaining how to use your items in a meditative Energy Protection Ritual. I think I will have to give this a try. For the record, I have pretty traditional Western religious / spiritual beliefs, but I have found that New Age / Eastern practices such as meditation and yoga have practical benefits. You can't know what practical benefits you might receive from a practice unless you try it, right? So I try most anything that doesn't seem harmful.
So much tiny literature came in this package! From top to bottom, left to right... An Earth Magic Oracle card showing a waterfall, Allison Dailey's (the owner) business card, a share + win notice (to win a box by sharing on social media), and Herbal Magic Candle affirmation, two temporary tattoos, and two information cards for the gemstones I received this month. Whew! I like the dreamcatcher tattoo!
Malachite - Value $8
Hematite - Value $3.50
(I am using the values listed on the card throughout this review. I'm not sure where or how to shop for most of these things, and from what I do understand, most of the values listed look reasonable.)
These are the two gemstones I received, and both are polished smooth. Malachite protects against depression and emotional wounds and is attached to the heart chakra. Hematite is good for the root chakra, the one I am currently focused on aligning. It helps block negative energy, among other things.
Hamsa Votive Holder - Value $5
Crystal Journey Candle - $3
This votive holder is beautiful! The candle is a reiki energy charged candle for protection, and it smells a bit like licorice. The only thing I don't like is that the black candle doesn't look good in the holder... I think I will have to find a white protective candle somewhere.
Talk to the Hamsa mug - Value $8?
(This one isn't listed on the card.)
I love this mug! I've been using that phrase for ages, and I was so pleased to receive this. Unfortunately, as you can see, it arrived chipped. I contacted customer service two days ago, and they put a replacement in the mail for me the same day!
Signature Sapphire Soul Smokeless Cleansing Mist - Value $11
What a great idea! One thing about "smudging" is that if you do it indoors, which is probably where you want the energy cleaned, there's a decent chance you will set off a fire alarm. This has a great earthy smell and will at least help freshen up any room.
Hamsa Bracelet - Value $39
This is a really pretty bracelet, and I can't wait to break it out the next time my Mom wears her evil eye necklace. I just wish there was information about what types of stones and crystals these are!
Hamsa Candle Snuffer - Value $12
With all the candles I've received in subscription boxes, you would think I would already have a candle snuffer, but no! This is my fist! It's really pretty, too.
Hamsa / Talisman Window Hang - $7
I think this was my favorite item in the whole package! It's really beautiful, and the metal / blue makes it perfect for the north-facing window in my bedroom. I love it!
The Verdict: I definitely feel well-armed to protect myself against negative or evil energy thanks to Sapphire Soul this month! The cost of this package including shipping was $61.50 with shipping, and the listed value of the items comes to nearly $100, so that's fabulous! It certainly felt like a lot, and I think any practitioner of New Age spirituality would absolutely love this subscription!
