Goddess Provisions “Earth Alchemy” Review
Here’s the info card with the theme and product list for the month. The theme is “Earth Alchemy.”
Let’s dive in!
Soul + Selene Floral Resin Crystal Tip – Listed Value $16.00
This little resin crystal is very cool, though it sure is small! Encased in the resin is a small died flower specimen. I am not 100% sure what type is in my crystal, but it is very pretty and delicate. This is a really unique addition to my crystal collection!
Wilde Canyon Wildflower Balm – Retail Value $6.99
So, this cute lip balm is 100% compostable, which I find really charming in an earth-themed box. It also feels great on my lips and leaves them smooth and hydrated! The main ingredients here are sunflower oil and cocoa butter, both of which are excellent for sore chapped lips. This is easily one of my favorite balms so far this year and the darling packaging is a bonus.
Lilac & Willow ‘Forest’ Candle – Listed Value $12.00
I love deep, woody scents. They do a great job of bringing a little of the forest into my indoor space. Sadly, we can’t always be outside. This soy candle is scented with cedar, pine, spruce, and vanilla oils, with a touch of eucalyptus. While this candle could easily feel too Christmasy for a spring box, those evergreen notes are really mellowed out with the vanilla in a way that makes it feel perfect for any time of year. The bits of forest flora and crystals on top was a lovely touch.
Earth Goddess Mist, 2 oz – Buy a full-size glass bottle for $33.00
Juniper, cedar, cypress, cinnamon bark, & vetiver give this grounding foresty spray a deep and sensual scent. I love having sprays like this for my bedroom and office because they can really set the tone for my day or night when used at the beginning or end of my day. Like most woodsy scented items do for me, I found it very calming and comforting.
Simply Straw Reusable Glass Straw – Retail Value $11.00
I have gotten plastic BPA straws, bamboo straws, and now a glass straw recently in my boxes. I am glad these more earth-friendly disposable straw options are becoming popular because disposable straws are really terrible for the environment. This is a pretty easy way to use less plastic! At this point, I am pretty close to being a straw connoisseur, and I have to say I LOVE this glass one. It feels so ridiculously fancy. It even comes with its own brush to make sure it stays nice and clean. I kind of want a few in different colors!
Wyld French Pink Clay Konjac Sponge – Retail Value $16.90
I have gotten at least 2 other konjac sponges in boxes recently. It is always so funny to me when things like that happen. These natural sponges are really great to use on sensitive facial skin, and because they are made of organic materials, they don’t last as long as their plastic counterparts. For this reason, I don’t at all mind getting some extras to stash away! This pink clay infused sponge is great for sensitive skin. The clay helps purify your pores without being as drying as a clay mask would be. You can also use your fave cleanser on it for extra deep cleaning.
Serpentine – Listed Value $4.00
Serpentine is one of those stones that just has a really unique color. I actually have a watercolor paint made from this stone and the pale chartreuse green is one of my favorites to paint with because it is just a fascinating shade. This stone is known for being good luck (like so many green stones!) and it is also said to enhance creativity, which makes sense with a color like this!
Matr Boomie Fairtrade Shibori Scarf – Listed Value $25.00
This 100% cotton scarf is made by fair trade artisans. I will easily admit that this scarf is smaller than I would expect for a true functional scarf, and these are colors I never wear. I plan on finding it a new more appropriate home or maybe using it to wrap a gift for someone as a really pretty gift wrap alternative.
The Verdict: I really liked this month’s Goddess Provisions. The foresty theme really spoke to me, as someone who loves the outdoors. I also adore that they sent natural products that are also good for our earth, like the totally compostable lip balm, natural konjac sponge, and my new favorite glass straw. The serpentine stone and resin crystal both spoke to my inner rock hoarder tendencies. You can never have enough rocks guys. Never. I am guesstimating the value of this box to be around $92 ($108.50 according to the booklet’s listed prices) which is good for a $33 box, even if those prices are a little inflated.
To Wrap Up:
Value Breakdown: This box costs $33.00 + free US shipping, which means that each of the 7 items in the box has an average cost of $4.71.
