“Enchanted Forest” is the theme for September. The card, as well as the featured items, all have a woodsy, almost fairytale feel.
Wanderluxe Crescent Moon Wall Hanging – Listed Value $15.00
I love this little wall hanging! The wooden circle is about 3″ in diameter, and the soft fringey tassel measures about 6″ long. It’s very lightweight and simple, but it’s a charming addition to a quiet wall in need of some life. The gold nail comes with the piece for easy hanging, though I kind of want to hang it in a window, rather than on a wall. I think it’d be fun to see what crescent moon shapes this cut-out might cast in my office when backlit by the sun.
I couldn’t find this smaller item on the Wanderluxe site shop, but their larger pieces go for over $100.00. So though it’s on the smaller side, I feel like $15.00 is a reasonable estimate for what Wanderlust might charge for this petite gift.
Laser Trees Wood Keychain – Value $6.99 (Listed Value $7.00)
The wooden lotus-inspired charm on this keychain is about the size of a quarter. The cherry wood is light in the hand and has a gorgeous maple tone to it, especially on the sides of the design. According to the info card, this bit of sacred geometry is meant to “promote stability and enhance focus.” I like that out of the corner of my eye, this little design looks like the natural rings of a tree. In reality, the design is far more intricate and beautiful. Either way, the forest theme definitely comes through!
Trillium Organics Cedar Eucalyptus Body Polish, 4 oz – Value $12.00
I love exfoliating my skin. Like, seriously, I’m obsessed. Especially in the colder weather, when my body is wrapped up in stuffy sweaters and skinny jeans all day, there’s nothing quite as refreshing as a full-body scrub down in the shower.
First off, this salt-based scrub smells awesome. It’s like walking through a pine forest after a rain. The salt provides a fine grittiness that’s not terribly abrasive—it’s not quite enough to give me that emerge-from-the-shower-a-brand-new-person feeling, but it’s definitely enough to leave me petting my newly smooth and supple skin. And this little mixture is deliciously moisturizing. Where moisturizing soaps and shower gels say they’ll leave my skin feeling softer after use, this stuff actually left my skin feeling plump and nourished.
Blue Sage Smudge Bundle – Listed Value $5.00
Maybe it’s just because I love earthy forest fragrances, but I am just as in love with this sage smudge as I am with the cedar and eucalyptus scrub! I picked up and smelled this bundle before I read what it was made of, and I originally thought it was rosemary. There’s an earthy sweetness to this smudge that I really like. It’s something a little different than the typical sage smudge I’m used to.
Good Vibes Pin by Brie McKay – Value $10.00
Speaking of sage smudges… here’s one in pin form! Part of me thinks this looks a little bit like a bundle of steamed asparagus, but I also love asparagus as much as I love sage smudges, so no complaints here! Enamel pins are so much fun to collect, and I really dig unique designs like this one.
Plantlife Eucalyptus Essential Oil, 10ml – Value $6.95 (Listed Value $12.00)
Are your sinuses raging like mine are this time of year? I swear, some days the whole left side of my face is in a little sinus traffic jam. According to the info card, this oil is supposed to assist in clearing sinuses and aiding immunity. Just a quick whiff of the bottle makes my nose feel soothed and refreshed. I might add a drop or two of this to my next shower and just breathe in the steamy goodness.
One thing to note here—I found this product listed for a little more than half what the info card listed. It’s totally possible that with shipping, the value of this product would hike up a bit. But just FYI!
Element Botanicals 12 Incense Cones in Wildwood – Value $9.00 (Listed Value $8.00)
I’m kind of new to the world of incense, but I’m eager to experience these little cones, as opposed to the traditional sticks. I love the smell of these cones—the combination of palo santo and pine resin smells like a desert campfire. The card says these will help ground me, energetically. I for sure know they’ll refresh my apartment air with a natural, peaceful, autumnal aroma.
Moss Agate – Listed Value $4.00
This month’s stone is “the stone of new beginnings and abundance” according to the info card. They suggest nestling it in a potted plant or in the garden to help coax plants along. This gummy-bear-sized stone reminds me of a swirling blue-gray lake. I suppose it has the same nourishing vibe that water might. I’ve not developed my green thumb yet, so I’ll have to see if this stone helps my houseplants at all. Or maybe I’ll keep it in my pocket as a reminder to water them!
Verdict: After last month’s unicorn-themed Goddess Provisions box, this month’s box feels somewhat sophisticated and grounded. Maybe that’s because it’s literally centered around earthy inspirations. Either way, I loved basically everything in this box! I think I’m most excited about the scrub. Oh, and the eucalyptus oil—I’m so used to getting essential oil products meant to bring general peacefulness (think lots of lavender), so it’s awesome to receive something really useful that’s specifically aligned with the needs of the season (a.k.a. sinus distress and the colds that come with chilly weather). The box is only $33 per month, but I got about $69.00 worth of unique products, which makes it worth it to me.
