The Lady of Light Subscription Box: “Danu, Goddess Box, focusing on Love, Fertility, Nurture and Wisdom.”
We all LOVE subscription boxes! Especially now, with everything still not back to “normal”, this is a fun way to get a monthly surprise and stay positive. As someone who has created and subscribed to magical monthly boxes I couldn’t wait for this new monthly gig!
Your items are accompanied by packet which describes your box and the items in it. Each person does not get all the same items, but there is a very informative list on what you will be receiving and the properties of each. I found this helpful and educational.
The packaging was very cute: Bright, colorful and giving off good vibes. I am a sensory person, so I love textures, colors, materials, and scents. As soon as I opened the box, I was greeted by the aroma from the herbal smudge bundle. It was a sweet, calming scent and the bundle itself was super cute with the dried floral. This happened to be the first of the 8 items on the sheet that accompanied the box.
There was a fragrance oil-Mother Earth, made by Green Tree that smelled absolutely divine.
A very heavy, gorgeous rose quartz pendulum with an amethyst heart. Very nice quality and those that like heavy pendulums will be very happy with this item.
The “chunk” of rose quartz was a bit small for the value listed, but was still a nice piece. The Dolomite cat, was adorable and perfect to carry in your pocket. The box of Romantic Rose incense smelled lovely. The soap “chunk”, was more like a small bar of soap-so I was pleasantly surprised with the size of it. It was adorable with a printed cloth cover and the fragrance of “Seduction” was seducing indeed, and you could enjoy it right through the packaging.
The only item I was a little disappointed in was the Heart Pendant, which I received in ‘Opalite”. It was valued at $29, it was super cute and had silver flowers that were very nicely placed, I just feel like the quality did not meet my expectation at a $29 value.
The “free” insight card was a very nice touch and would be something I looked forward to each month if I was a subscriber.
My favorite touch was the Workshop Activity. It was an added sheet that tied in your monthly Goddess with a great amount of information on Her and you can see how the items in the box relate to Her. The workshop was an activity/ritual focusing on the monthly Goddess and really giving you the opportunity to work with the items your received, learn and understand what you are doing and why, all while bringing you closer to the Goddess.
Overall, I feel like the contents, workshops, affirmations and information given was a fair value. I really liked that it gave you a way to properly use what was given, and the educational pieces of it. It wasn’t just a box full of items with no direction, which makes it a box that clients will not only love and use-but will reorder.
