Animal Allies Oracle Cards – Retail Value $22.95, Listed Value $23.00

This deck of 60 cards acts a bit like a tarot deck. Draw one of the illustrated cards when you need a bit of inspiration and read about what that card signifies. I like the idea of seeking new ideas and perspectives from these familiar animals and their metaphorical meanings.

Goddess Provisions Wild Wisdom incense

Goddess Provisions Wild Wisdom two incense sticks

Sacred Elephant Incense, Set of 13 – Listed Value $8.50 (Buy 10 for 3.50 GBP here)

I love the sweet, earthy aroma of these rich brown incense sticks. Myrrh is classic and meditative. It strikes me as a great scent to have billowing through my home as fall sets in.

Goddess Provisions Wild Wisdom rollerball

Rootfoot Intentional Wear Bear Spirit Animal Roll-On, 10 ml. – Retail Value $28.00

This unisex fragrance is earthy, a little piney, and invigorating in an unexpected way. It’s a mix of vetiver, pine, and sandalwood in a convenient rollerball package. According to the info card, the bear is supposed to inspire introspection. It’s definitely a peaceful, grounding fragrance, so I can see it being a nice aroma to catch a whiff of during a busy day at work or while settling into a meditation practice.

Goddess Provisions Wild Wisdom back of spirit animals book

Llewellyn’s Little Book of Spirit Animals – Retail Value $12.99 (found on sale here for $9.33), Listed Value $9.33

If you’re unfamiliar with the concept of spirit animals and animal guides, this book is a nice introduction. It includes a kind of glossary, listing out individual animals and their significance, as well as information on how to “use” animal guides.

Fractalista Designs Palo Santo – Listed Value $4.00 (Buy 4 for $14.95 here)

Palo Santo can be singed like incense and used to refresh the energy of a space. It has a unique aroma—it’s fresh and woodsy, and I think it has a very subtle rubbery smell to it—that definitely makes a stuffy room smell a bit more awake and renewed.

Goddess Provisions Wild Wisdom buffalo sticker

WildSlicedDesigns Bison Sticker – Retail Value $4.95, Listed Value $5.00

I just came back from a vacation out west, so I love seeing images of mountains and pine trees within the shape of this black and white bison. According to the site shop, the sticker is made from weatherproof vinyl, so it’s great for a car, a water bottle, a suitcase, and more.

Goddess Provisions Wild Wisdom turquoise stone

Goddess Provisions Wild Wisdom blue shiny stone

Goddess Provisions Wild Wisdom teal stone

Peacock Ore – Listed Value $6.00

This stone is SO gorgeous, but its vibrancy makes me wonder if it’s natural or not. Nevertheless, it looks great on my desk. The card says it’s supposed to inspire things like happiness and dreaming, and it’s definitely doing that for me. How could you not feel a bit of wonder looking at this mermaid-like stone?!

The Verdict: I liked how curated this month’s box felt—everything nodded back to the theme. The quality of the items was great, too. The incense and essential oil rollerball, in particular, were so peaceful and beautiful. I always enjoy when there’s reading material in this box, as it helps me really learn and engage with the spiritual subject matter. One thing I do wish for this box and other boxes in this subscription is that there’d be more background information about the cultures from which these traditions stem from. I personally find that really interesting, enriching, and important.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Sign up now for the September box. Also, 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 $87.39 worth of value inside. Proportionally, that means the price paid for each individual item is approximately the following:

  • Oracle cards – $8.67
  • Incense – $3.21
  • Rollerball – $10.57
  • Book – $4.91
  • Palo santo – $1.51
  • Sticker – $1.87
  • Stone – $2.27

The average cost per item via the box is $4.71.

  1. I’ve never been overly interested in this box before, but, for some reason, I decided to read this review, and, oh my gosh! I need it! So I ordered the September box.

  2. peacock or is bornite-it’s legit. It’s hardnes is a 3.5 and it’s brittle so that’s why you don’t see it much other than rough stones. The coloring is an oxidation effect (v. High in copper) so that can be enhanced to bring out the color, but still legit! (Unlike druzy quartz and a lot of colored quartz out there)

  3. I love your idea about adding cultural information! I might even holler at them to suggest it as well lol. As for the peacock ore, I think it’s probably natural but based on my research, the particularly vibrant ones tend to have an acid treatment that causes the bright blues and purples. So, like, to me, it’s definitely natural, just someone might have fiddled with it a bit to brighten it up some more lol. That being said, my gemstone knowledge is not extensive. I just tend to research the stones because they’re interesting, and I’m always curious about which minerals etc cause the colors and designs and all that. In this case, several sources said that peacock ore is often “chalcopyrite treated with acid.”

    • Wow! Thanks so much for all this great info, Trudy!

  4. I think the peacock ore is probably natural; it’s something I’ve come across a few times while rockhounding out west. That is a particularly beautiful piece, though!

    • Yeah, I looked it up and it seems to be real, although that piece looks better than average. I wish someone would make beads out of it. (I have seen some pendants, but not beads.) Probably it has the wrong hardness or doesn’t polish well or something.

      • The pretty part is mostly on the surface, and the underlying rock feels kind of slate-y to me (at least with the pieces I’ve found), so it’s probably just not very amenable to bead form. There are a few pretty good fakes out there, though; I have some “blue peacock druzy beads” that look fairly similar.

        • Most druzy is electroplated to add color so it’s not all that “real,” either. (On the other hand, you can get it in just about any color you want, evenly coated. GemMartUSA has quite a lot for cheap.)

    • I can only imagine how awesome it must be to see one of these brilliant stones in the wild! Thanks for sharing, BeccaA!

  5. This looks like a great gift for someone I know, so I’m having it sent as a one-time box. I’m just glad that they have the gift option; not all subscription sites make it easy like that.

    I bet that October’s box will be stunning.
