Here’s the info card for the month. It has a neat design on the back that would look nice tacked on the fridge or above my desk as a little reminder.

White Sage Bundle – Listed Value $5.00

Sage is helpful for bringing a clean, refreshing feeling into a space. It also smells awesome in my opinion! Just singe the end and let the smoke float through the air.

Bixby Bar – Listed Value $3.00, Buy 6 for $18.00 (Found here at 6 for $17.00)

Oooo, chooocolate… This craft chocolate bar features rainforest alliance certified dark chocolate peppered with Maine sea salt, Maine blueberries, and cashews. It’s got a soft crunch to it that makes it feel like a decadent commercial candy bar, but with much better ingredients. The blueberry flavor is super mild—I wouldn’t know blueberry was in the mix if I didn’t see it on the label.

Kyanite – Listed Value $4.00

This cloudy blue stone is about 2 inches long. According to the info card, it corresponds to the throat chakra (which is blue!), so it’s supposed to inspire me to speak my mind and help with communication. That’s super important during the last bits of Mercury retrograde!

Kailo Crown Essence, 10 ml – Retail Value $42.00

This oil smells awesome. It includes anise seed, frankincense, and lavender, which I can only describe as the fragrance version of waking up refreshed on a Saturday morning in a pool of gentle sunlight. Does that make sense? It’s an instant gentle uplift.

Little Moon Essentials Clear Skies Ahead Spray, 1 fl. oz. – Listed Value $3.00, Buy a 2 oz. bottle for $6.30 here

I’ve turned to this mist a few times in the past week to help me feel less stressy. It honestly works! The aroma centers on lavender, chamomile, and geranium, which smells something like a peaceful meadow. A few spritzes around my head has proven to be a nice reset for me.

Spirit Whisperings Crystal Grid – Retail Value $9.95, Listed Value $10.00

This kit contains a card, which is about 4″x 4″, as well as tiny stones to set on the card in a specific arrangement. According to the card, arranging the gems on this geometric shape helps enhance the vibrational energy of the stones and bring in light energy. I’ve never seen or done one of these rituals before, but it’s something fun to try! It seems like it’d make a really cute gift for someone into crystals and holistic practices.

Rainbow Symphony Sun Catchers, Set of 10 – Listed Value $10.00 (Buy 12 for $14.95 here)

This is such a fun item! These gem-shaped window clings have iridescent bits inside their clear plastic that catch the light in a myriad of awesome ways. I popped a few of them on a window that gets direct sunlight, and I loved checking in on the changing rainbow hues they caught depending on where the sun was. (There was a period around 3pm where they were the most amazing purple color!)

More importantly, I caught them throwing rainbows across the walls of my living room throughout the day! How fun!

goddess provisions chakras workbook

The Moon Sisterhood Upper Chakras Guide – Listed Value $24.00

The last item on the list is this digital workbook on the upper chakras, including the throat, third eye, and crown chakras. The workbook is a downloadable PDF that’s emailed to you when you input your email at the website listed on the info card. There are 29 pages of guidance, definitions, descriptions of the chakras, and worksheets to test you on facts about them. There are also journal prompts to help you reflect on what you learn while meditating on each chakra.

I’m always a little suspect of digital “products” in subscription boxes, especially when they’re intended to count towards the value of the box. Something about them just feels a little too… easy. Maybe I’m just cynical, but I feel like there are soooo many resources out there on the internet, it’s hard to put a price on digital content. Also, I had to give my email address in order to get this workbook—that’s not an additional “cost”, but it does mean that now I’m on the company’s email list… I’m probably overthinking things, haha. Basically, my vibe is that it’s cool to learn that this workbook is available, but I don’t feel quite right thinking that it makes up $24.00 worth of this box’s value. What do you think?

Thistle Vegan Dry Shampoo, 2 oz. – Retail Value $15.00

This little shaker of dry shampoo originally didn’t appear in my box. I reached out to Goddess Provisions about it, and they were super kind and apologetic. They sent one out ASAP and promised they’d do the same should any subscribers encounter similar issues. I’m glad to have this natural version of dry shampoo because my hair tends to get oily fast (or should I say, I can be lazy about washing my hair every day…). The powder has a gorgeous gentle scent, almost like a peaceful herb garden.

The Verdict: I was bummed that the dry shampoo was missing initially, but overall, I enjoyed this box. I appreciated how many unique products they included, like the sun catchers and the candy bar. I always like how well-rounded their product assortments are. There’s always something fun to see, smell, touch, and even taste! I think it’s a good thing that had I not looked at the info card, I might not have realized anything was missing from the box—it was already pretty thorough. I’m not totally convinced about the value of the digital workbook, but it was interesting to page through. The box has an estimated value of about $115.95 (according to the retail values I was able to find and the listed values of products that I couldn’t find retail values for online). That’s not bad for a $33.00 box! I will say that a lot of that value came from the crown chakra oil rollerball, which was a relatively small item but priced at over $40.00, so if those sort of products aren’t your thing, you might not feel that you got as much value out of the box.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Sign up now for the May box. Some past boxes do end up for sale here!

Value Breakdown: The box cost $33.00 with free US shipping, but I estimate that I received at least $115.95 in value. Many of the items couldn’t be found online, or at least not in the size I got in the box, so I had to go by the listed value on the info card. Going by the cost of the box, I paid an average of $4.13 per each of the 8 items I received (not including the digital workbook).

  1. So, I can’t argue as to how much value that specific workbook should have, since I haven’t read it, but in general I don’t really understand why something being digital should automatically strip it of all value.

    Digital products don’t just manifest from the ether or appear on the net ab nihilo. Someone put time and energy and thought into creating them, and yes, that should have value. I don’t expect Amazon or iTunes to give me ebooks or music for free; I don’t think writers or photographers or designers who sell exclusively to online markets should give their work away for free; you get the idea. Intellectual work is still work. Artistic work is still work. And man, I really don’t want to come across as snarky here, because I’m honestly not trying to be, but Anna, you yourself produce written content for an internet blog – isn’t questioning whether digital products have value akin to shooting yourself in the foot? You *know* that quality writing (or photography or layout design or what have you) – whether it ends up as a concrete, physical object or not – is work. If someone else wants to make use of the product of that work, it should have exchange value.

    • I agree, especially since the digital workbook is 29 pages which seems pretty substantial.

  2. It’s funny how different smells affect different people! I smelled the rollerball without even opening it, because I dislike licorice and anise, and I could tell I hated it!

    I’ll be listing my rollerball for swap as soon as I get around to it, in case anyone feels enticed by Anna’s description!

  3. Hi Anna! I always love your reviews – thank you for being honest with skepticism because I share your opinion about the value of digital items. I think they should always just be considered a “bonus” for the reasons you gave. That said, it does seem like this box is attainable for a lot of people even if they aren’t deeply into the practices of crystals, sage-burning, etc. I don’t subscribe but I purchased the one-time mystery box and loved it.

    Again, much appreciation for your candid reviews – it always feels like I’m talking to a friend!

    Happy Friday!

    • Aw thank you so much for reading!!! And I’m so glad you enjoyed the mystery box. What you said about it being an attainable entry point into the world of crystals, etc. is so true – I’ve definitely learned a lot and had a lot of fun with the items I’ve gotten from this subscription 🙂

      Thanks again <3
