We have the first spoiler for the new Bombay & Cedar Seasonal Lifestyle Box

You asked for it! We listened! The Bombay & Cedar Seasonal box is here! Our quarterly box, delivered 4 times a year, is a wellness & lifestyle subscription box featuring vegan and cruelty free, full size products including skincare, books, home decor, tech, gourmet goodies & other products carefully curated for the discerning woman who lives a life inspired.

The Fall box will include:

Fermentation Kit by Craft A Brew or Farm Steady – $39.95 Value

Choose between:

Kombucha Starter Kit by Craft A Brew

This kit includes everything you need to brew a gallon of booch right out of the box. Kombucha is a fizzy fermented tea that’s jam packed with probiotics & antioxidants. It’s been enjoyed for centuries for its numerous health benefits. Make a gallon of this sweet & tangy tea at home with this easy starter kit. Includes 1 Gallon Glass Fermenting Jar, Tight Weave Cottone Cloth Jar Cover, Organic Black Tea, Organic Cane Sugar, Tea Bag, Scoby (Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria & Yeast).

Lacto Pickle Kit by Farm Steady

The easiest way to make lacto-fermented pickles at home. Your favorite kinds of pickles—from deli-style full sours and half sours, to classic dills and fiery hot pickles—all get their signature snappy crunch and tart pucker not from vinegar, but from fermentation. Specifically lacto-fermentation. Includes 1/2 Gallon Glass Fermenting Jar, Glass Fermentation Weight, Lid with Airlock, Kosher Salt, Black Tea Bag.

Fermented Vegetable Kit by Farm Steady

Lacto-fermenting vegetables (think classic dill pickles or sauerkraut) used to be all about food preservation and eating out-of-season produce, but it can mean so much more. Fermenting veggies gives new life and flavor to the food plucked from your backyard garden or bought at your local farmers market. It’s easy, it’s fun, and it’s amazingly healthy. Includeds 1/2 Gallon Glass Fermenting Jar, Glass Fermentation Weight, Lid with Airlock, Kosher Salt.

More on the new subscription:


What changes have been made to your boxes?

We’ve launched our Seasonal box! This box will be delivered 4 times a year. We’ve also decreased the price of our Monthly Lifestyle box and made some billing and shipping updates.

When will the Introductory Seasonal Lifestyle Box pricing increase?

You have until August 21st to lock in your price for the life of your subscription. Pricing will increase from $59.95/box to $74.95/box for Quarterly subscriptions and from $54.95/box to $69.95/box for Annual subscriptions.

Where is the MINI Lifestyle box?

We’ve decided to discontinue the MINI Lifestyle so we can put our resources into the launch of the Seasonal Box and to catch up on shipping.

Will you still offer Limited Edition boxes?

Yes and no. Right now, we have no plans to continue with the Limited Editions boxes we offered twice a year. We still may offer curated one time boxes or brand takeover boxes a few times a year.

Why did you make these changes?

We consistently receive three types of feedback every month. 1) “I wish your box was seasonal. Monthly is just too many products.” 2) “For a monthly box, your box is so expensive. I wish it was cheaper.” and 3) “I wish you offered free shipping.” We’re hoping these changes will address all of these issues.

What is the new pricing for Monthly Lifestyle box?

Previously, pricing for the Monthly Premium Lifestyle box was $49.95 plus $6.95 US shipping. We’ve decreased the price to $44.95/box plus FREE Shipping! Yay! Retail value will now be at least $100. Previously, it was at least $120.

What are the new billing and shipping updates for the Monthly Lifestyle box?

We’ve updated the billing and shipping dates to correspond with the current month along with help us catch up on shipping. The billing, shipping and cut off dates will now be in the current month rather then overlap over two different months.

Please note: We have not yet made this change with the Beauty Box. We’d like to see how it goes with Monthly Lifestyle box before we update both boxes.

I’m currently a Premium Lifestyle Box Subscriber? What will happen to my subscription?

You will be automatically moved to the new lower pricing. If you have a prepaid subscription, we can either offer a partial refund of the difference or offer extra BC Points. We will email several reminders during the rest of August asking your preference. If we don’t hear back we will automatically send the partial refund. Please do not email us your preference directly. We will send you a survey asking your preference in the next day or two.

I’m currently a Mini Lifestyle Box Subscriber? What will happen to my subscription?

Because the pricing is higher than your current subscription price, we don’t want to automatically move you to the new pricing without your permission. We will reach out to via email asking if you’d prefer a refund or if you’d like us to upgrade your subscription.

If you have a prepaid MINI subscription, we can either offer a refund of the difference or offer extra BC Points. We will email several reminders during the rest of August asking your preference. If we don’t hear back we will automatically send the partial refund. Please do not email us your preference directly. We will send you a survey asking your preference in the next day or two.

Have there been any new changes to the Beauty Box?

There are no current changes being made to the Beauty Box.

Will Bombay & Cedar Essential Oils be included in both the Monthly & Seasonal boxes?

No. Our oils will still be included in the Monthly box but will not be included in the Seasonal box.

Why did you launch a new box when you’re behind in shipping?

We’ve postponed the launch date for some time now but decided we could no longer hold off with the Fall season around the corner. We also wanted to be able to simplify our Monthly Lifestyle Box to help us catch up on shipping. Our Monthly box contains a lot of moving parts, is very detailed and is curated like a quarterly box. In order to adapt to current times, we realized we had to simplify what we were doing every month.

  1. I love kombucha and have thought about making it myself. That product is enough for this box to catch my eye for the first time ever… I don’t know that I can justify the cost of the box though… maybe when my annual FFF sub is up I’ll try this one. I’m sure I’d get much better quality with this box.

  2. The veggie and pickles are already sold out so myself and everyone else will be stuck with the kombucha unfortunately.

  3. I’m really digging the curation so far! $75 is a little out of my budget atm, but I’m hoping I’ll be able to snag the winter box.

  4. I want all those candles😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😁😍😍

  5. I don’t have an option to choose my option was sanitizer or shower scrub.

    • Those were for the Monthly Lifestyle box. The above options are for the Seasonal Lifestyle box. Xoxo

      • I am seasonal only though.

    • This is the quarterly seasonal box..not for the monthly box that comes every month. Its new

    • I’m sure you figured this out already, but you responded to the email for the MONTHLY lifestyle box.

      For some reason, Bombay & Cedar sends choice emails for all three boxes (quarterly lifestyle, monthly lifestyle, and beauty) to every subscriber, even if we don’t get all three boxes. It’s super weird.

      It says at the top of the choice email that you responded to (and it’s the first question in the choice feature) “Are you an active MONTHLY lifestyle subscriber?” You are not a monthly subscriber, so that choice (it was a fancy sanitizer or a shower powder, I believe) wasn’t for you.

      It’s not your fault though – it’s dumb that they send emails to us about boxes that we aren’t even subscribed to.

      Look through your emails and you should find two choice emails that say they are for the SEASONAL lifestyle box. Those are the ones you should be answering (not the monthly lifestyle or the beauty ones).

      There was one email about the candle choice and another about the kombucha/veggie/pickle choice.

      Hope that helps if you didn’t figure it out yourself already 🙂

  6. Although pickles, kombucha and fermented veggies can be easily bought in the grocery, this is a fun kit to try at home! Who knows, we might like it better than store made? Looking forward to this one. I chose the Kombucha! 😍

  7. The spoiler is a total miss for me. I chose regular combucha just because it would be easier to gift. The candle spoiler, however, is a win: give me all the candles.

  8. Nice! I like it. Something different. I don’t subscribe, but I love pickles. That would be my choice. I love kombucha too, but I am super particular with the ones I drink. Side note: If you haven’t tried Wild Tonic’s Jun-kombucha in Raspberry Goji Rose you need to (If you like rose..because it is the predominant flavor). It comes in such lovely packaging, too. Blue glass with little bees on it and an old timey botanical shop type label. They are such pretty bottles that I repurpose them as bud vases and give away farmer’s market flowers to friends and neighbors.

  9. Would love to see a review of this box!

  10. I chose the Kombucha kit; I think it will be fun! Even though it’s not something I would have on a wish list, it seems like a great choice for this new seasonal box. Glad I got the introductory pricing because I probably wouldn’t risk it at full price.

  11. I was super interested in this box until I saw the price, $75? Eesh. A bit rich for my taste when Causebox comes in at $50. Wonder if they will have a coupon for your first sub.

    • They already did. If you signed up last month you were grandfathered in at $59 quarterly.

  12. We will see if the comment shows, as some of mine for another box disappeared from yesterday. I actually think this box looks good, love fermenting kits.
