May Goddess Provisions Box!

I subscribe to the monthly Goddess Provisions box (from the same folks who bring you Vegan Cuts snack and beauty boxes), which comes stuffed with a grab bag of crystals, essential oils, teas, vegan beauty products, chocolate, vegan snacks, and jewelry. I like to do unpacking posts here with each box because receiving my box is one of the highlights of my month!

My May box arrived earlier than expected. They typically come mid-month, so I was stoked to get this surprise in the mail this week. Here's what was inside.

There are two kinds of herbal greens & superfood powders by Mattole Valley Naturals, a wildflower facial steam by Soapylane, Eagle essential oil blend by Rootfoot, a citrine point, and a power mala bracelet by High Chi Energy.

I feel like I say this every month, but I think this was my favorite box so far! The boxes just keep getting better and better. The power mala bracelet is definitely the coolest bracelet I've gotten in one of my Goddess boxes. This has amethyst for intuition and spiritual connection, turquoise for luck and protection, jade for inner peace and balance, rudraksha for spritual connection, and vegan-friendly glass pearls.

I've received so many amazing-smelling oil blends in these boxes, and this Eagle Spirit Animal fragrance is among the best. It's organic and made with wild-crafted cedarwood, palo santo, geranium, orange, and cinnamon oils. It's smells both woodsy and bright at the same time. 

I'm totally in love with this citrine point (mine has little streaks of red!). I had tumbled citrine in my collection, but I didn't have a rough stone version. Citrine is known as the "success stone" and it helps manifest abundance, prosperity, creativity, and physical vitality.

The wildflower facial steam is really neat. I've used herbal facial steams before, but it's been years. Basically, you just steep a pinch of herbs or dried flowers in a bowl of boiling water, wait for it to cool a tad, and stick your face over the bowl. I cover my head with a towel to trap the steam. I tried this mix of red roses, calendula, chamomile, comfrey leaf, and rosemary leaf last night, and it made my face feel so amazing. So fresh and clean!

I've saved the best for last! My very favorite items this month are the greens blends. One is Full Spectrum (acai, goji, chlorella, reishi, blue-green algae, green papaya, etc.) and the other is the Longevity blend (fo-ti, blueberry, gotu kola, reishi, shilajit, etc.). I added a teaspoon (that's all it takes!) to my blueberry-peach protein smoothie yesterday morning, and I swear it gave me SO MUCH ENERGY. I felt like I'd had a few cups of coffee after drinking this smoothie. I'm thinking about buying more as soon as I run out!

I'm a Goddess Provisions ambassador, which means I make a couple bucks if anyone signs up using this link. I don't get my boxes free though, just to be clear. I subscribe and pay the $33 a month, and it's totally worth it. You always get all full-sized items (no sample sizes in this box!). Also, Goddess Provisions has the BEST Instagram ever. I check it nightly because all the pics of crystals and unicorns and mandalas make me happy.

This box looks amazing! I always love what you get in them! When I get a little extra in my budget I will probably sign up and I'll have to remember to use your link when I do!
