You’ve Got Magick Mail with Inked Goddess Creations!
Magick Mail can be a recurring monthly subscription box or a one time box deal. Whatever floats your boat. Each month’s delivery is different from the previous and matches that month’s energy and theme. They contain exclusive Inked Goddess Creations handmade products, as well as, products from other small businesses and artists to bring you unique products.
Every box contains an exclusive to Inked Goddess Creations Candle. A DIY kit so you can focus your magick. Three more additional items that fit the theme of the month and information cards.
Magick Mail ranges in price from a One Month purchase for $25 with free shipping, to a Six Month Subscription which makes each box $20.84 with free shipping.
We were curious as to what makes this box so unique and Magickal! Let’s tear into it…
The box is adorable. It comes with a Goddess symbol and the words Magick Mail on top. The long sides say Release the Magick Within & the internet address.
The two smaller sides have a variety of style of stars on them. The packaging is fun. However, if you are not out of the broom closet, do not ask for a neighbor or anyone to pick up the package for you or have it left outside your door. I kind of think it is whimsical enough though to not be over the top.
When you open the box lid up you get a cute message from the maker. That message is hidden and for your eyes only when you open the box. It is a lovely touch.
The Kitchen Witch Card
The first thing your eyes are drawn to when you open the box is a postcard sized note with the words The Kitchen Witch printed on it boldly. This card introduces you to the boxes topic for the month. This particular month was Kitchen Witchery. I love this idea! How unique! Not just Kitchen Witchery as in herbs, but COOKING, too!!
The card gives a detailed list of everything the box contains and a breakdown of each items value so you know what you are getting for what you paid. The prices look fair and just and nothing seems over priced to me.
Correspondences and meanings of each item are listed. Also, information on the box that the items come in is given. It is made from 100% recycled and biodegradable packaging and tissue paper. Being kind to Mother Earth!
This adorable, purple, silicone Spatula comes sealed separately to keep it nice and hygienic. It is sturdy and made of good quality. The handle reads “Stir in Some Magick”. Adorable! The royal purple color was picked intentionally for divine guidance. The Kitchen Witch Card gives you all the information on safety for using the Silicone Spatula and the temperatures it is good for.
Reusable Grocery Bag
This is the cutest reusable bag I have seen. It came in very handy while buying supplies for a recipe that was included with the box, that will be shared later in the review. Very roomy. Holds as much, no more, than a flimsy grocery bag.
Great smelling votive candle. It has a thick, solid foundation. The shade of brown is simply lovely.
Blank Recipe Cards
Included are four 5×7 inch cards to write your own recipes on. They are on good solid cardstock so they will last. They design in the background is cute. There is ample space to write ingredients, directions, and take notes.
Now…the fun parts… I have saved these two pieces for last because they go together.
Culinary Blends Sample Pack
There are four sample bottles of Magick Spice Blends included in this Magickal Cooking themed box for you to cook and bake with and add to your own recipes. I think they are pretty large for “sample sized”. Each bottle relates to a different spell. There is Money, Love, Protection, & Healing. The herbs contained in each bottle are written on each label, as well as, allergy warnings. The flavors range from sweet to savory.
Recipe Cards with Recipes
Four recipe cards are included with the Magick Mail box. All four tie in the Culinary Blends Sample Pack! Each recipe is from the box creator’s personal cookbook. There is 1 Breakfast/Snack recipe, 2 Meal recipes, & 1 Dessert. All sound delicious. Each recipe comes on a pretty card, professionally printed on sturdy cardstock.
SOOOO….How do we know if these recipes are any good?? How do we know if these Magick Spice Blends are any good? Well, we bake…
Magickal Baking Fun!
I chose to bake the Lovin’ Double Chocolate Cookies. I used my new bag to purchase my supplies and got down to it. I picked this recipe because, well, I LOVE cookies & chocolate.
This recipe called for the Love Herbal Mixture. I used exactly as much as it asked for, and I KNEW it was a big “sample’ jar, because I have plenty left over to make another batch or something else. The batch of cookies is a large one. I can easily get 21 pretty LARGE cookies from it.
I followed the recipe exactly. Pouring all my energy and Love into it. Here is my batter of Love.
So first taste of cookies is always the dough. If you can eat cookie dough raw and love it, you know you have a good cookie….or just dough that will never become a cookie because you’ve eaten all the dough! Dip one….OMGODDESS!!!! I needed milk! Just for the dough! It was that good! Dip two….more milk. I couldn’t. They had to force me to bake them.
Hocus Pocus and Bam….We have Cookies!!
The taste is a mixture of Deliciousness, choco-chocolate chip cookie, part brownie, love, and heaven. There may be no such place as heaven, but this cookie is it. I think the magick of the Love in the cookie was for everyone to Love the Cookie 🙂
My Overall Impression of Magick Mail…
I do not see how anyone could not love this box. It engages you. It is different from the regular boxes out there that just give you incense, candles, witch supplies, and say, this does this and that. This box makes you DO MAGICK in a fun way. And, you get to incorporate your whole family. You get supplies you get to use on a regular, every day basis to remind you that you ARE a witch. A bag to do your everyday shopping. Recipes to cook everyday meals and treats. To think this box of fun changes every month with new, innovative ideas, now that is something!!
PaganPagesOrg: What brought the idea of the monthly subscription box to you?
Morgan Moss: My kids were subscribed to some monthly kits for science, crafts, etc. They loved getting them every month, so I started looking up subscription boxes that I would be interested in getting each month. The witchy boxes that existed at the time were too expensive for my family’s budget, and I knew I couldn’t be the only witch on a budget who wanted a subscription box. That’s when the idea for Magick Mail was born.
PaganPagesOrg: How did you begin them?
Morgan Moss: I started with a lot of research, online and with my customers. I didn’t want Magick Mail to be like any of the boxes that were already on the market. My online store had been open for a few years, so I had an idea of what types of products my customers enjoyed. Once I figured out what type of box I wanted Magick Mail to be, and the price that would cover it, I launched it.
PaganPagesOrg: How do you choose what to put inside your boxes?
Morgan Moss: Each month we choose a theme that resonates with that month’s energy. We have a checklist we like to follow to make Magick Mail unique from other boxes out there. Each month we have a handmade votive, a DIY (we want the customer making magick each month), at least 1 handmade item exclusive to Inked Goddess Creations, and several other full-sized and sample-sized products. Many of the products I choose by intuition. I also like to work with other small businesses to get their products out into the world.
PaganPagesOrg: Is yours a recurring monthly box?
PaganPagesOrg: Are you, yourself Pagan?
Morgan Moss: Yes. I’ve walked the path of the Avalonian Tradition for about 13 years now, and am an eclectic kitchen witch.
PaganPagesOrg: What are some of your interests?
Morgan Moss: My family is my everything. My husband and I have been married for 18 years, and we have 2 kids, 15 and 13. We are very big into spending time as a family, which we do by watching movies, playing board games and collaborating on items for the store. When I’m not working or spending time with my family, I enjoy reading, catching up on my favorite TV shows, and practice regular meditation.
PaganPagesOrg: Did you feel the Pagan world was missing something to make you create your box?
Morgan Moss: I did. At the time I started my research, the pagan subscription box market was saturated with expensive monthly boxes. I wanted something the average pagan could afford, but that every pagan would enjoy.
PaganPagesOrg: Do you sell other types of products?
Morgan Moss: We do! Inked Goddess Creations has been open since 2013, supplying the tools for your magickal life. Many of our items are handmade, such as Spell Oils, Perfume Oils, Mists, Spell Kits, Witch Bottles and more. Our candles are exclusively made for our store, and we have unique altar items, divination items, a line of Kitchen Witchery items and so much more!
