Goddess Provisions “Open to Love” Box Review August 2018
Here’s the info card with the theme and product list for the month.
Seed of Creation Necklace – Retail Value $33.00
This heart chakra necklace was handmade in Bali. The cord is made so that you can slide the beads on either side up or down to loosen or tighten the fit. The metal is a combination of brass, silver, copper, and gold. I like the intricate charm and simple style.
Sacred Heart Spirit Element Body Oil, 2 oz. – Listed Value $9.00
Given the candy color of this shimmering emerald oil, I was expecting a sugary sweet aroma (which, to be honest, isn’t my fave). But the scent of this oil is a peaceful blend of lavender, rosewood, sandalwood, and lemon. It’s a little moody, a little sensual, and very relaxing. The green doesn’t show up at all even on my pale skin—I was left with nourished, soft skin with a dry finish and a touch of shimmer.
Spirit Whisperings Crystal Grid – Retail Value $9.95, Listed Value $10.00
This little kit is meant to help you release past pains and welcome in love. The tiny stones include garnet, howlite, and rose quartz—when you set them on the little map in a certain arrangement, they’re said to have even stronger powers than they would otherwise. I can’t say I perceived any noticeable power from these stones, but the act of setting up this kit is a peaceful, centering, meditative practice.
Joco Botanicals Heart Chakra Soap, 4.15 oz. – Retail Value $7.97, Listed Value $8.00
This soap has a beautiful smell. It’s made with tangerine, Peru balsam, and sage, so it’s both sweet and refreshing but earthy and peaceful. In other words, it’s just the kind of gentle fragrance I like waking up to in my morning shower. The soap is made coconut oil and shea butter, plus nettle and French clay. This nourishing soap is apparently blended with “an energetic fusion of emerald, aventurine, and rose quartz charged H2O” for extra chakra expanding oomph!
Good JuJu Apothecary Roll-On Treatment for Aches and Pains, 0.33 fl. oz. – Retail Value $19.99, Listed Value $20.00
This oil is meant to be applied to achy/sore/painful areas to help alieviate discomfort. It contains organic bay laurel, organic peppermint, organic juniper, organic cinnamon, organic clove bud, and organic patchouli, so it smells refreshing, crisp, and peaceful. There’s also arnica, which uses heat to increase blood flow, and emerald gemstones, which are said to welcome love and help you release pain.
Lizush Shower Steamer in Eucalyptus – Listed Value $5.00
I love the fun of a bath bomb, but I shower more often than bathe just out of convenience. This shower steamer dissolves in the hot water of the shower and releases a refreshing eucalyptus scent. The little botanicals on top are pretty, too, so it makes using it feel spa-like and fun.
Amazonite – Listed Value $4.00
This marbled stone is about an inch big and the shape of a well-used eraser. I love the smooth edges and icy seafoam color. According to the info card, this stone is supposed to represent hope and courage.
The Verdict: I liked this month’s box. There was so much green! I’m so used to seeing reds, oranges, and other warm colors in summer boxes, so this cool, green, heart chakra box was a welcome shake-up of the routine. The aromas were all right up my alley, which is rare for me. I liked the mix of earthy and citrus vibes. I feel like some of these items would make great gifts for friends if I don’t use them myself!
To Wrap Up:
Value Breakdown: The box cost $33.00 with free US shipping, but I estimate that I received at least $88.91 worth of value inside. Proportionally, that means the price paid for each individual item is approximately the following:
- Necklace – $12.25
- Oil – $3.34
- Crystal kit – $3.69
- Soap – $2.96
- Aches and pains rollerball – $7.42
- Shower melt – $1.86
- Amazonite – $1.48
The average cost per item via the box is $4.71.
