Goddess Provisions “Wild Wisdom” Box Review September 2018
Here’s the info card with the theme and product list for the month.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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:
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.
