Pagan subscriptions? What!?
I'll admit it, I jumped on the Monthly Subscription makeup/beauty boxes a couple years ago and fell in love with getting monthly gifts in the mail. I still subscribe to many and so when I first discovered Pagan monthly boxes my interest piqued.
Of the few that are out there, most are Wicca based and although I don't subscribe to all of the ideals of Wicca there are some aspects that do appeal to me strongly and I incorporate them into my Druidry with ADF. The elements of Wicca that I hold sacred are that of herbs, stones and candles so finding subscriptions that were less about The Goddess and more element (namely Earth)-based were important too me.
I tried out two this month and hope to continue one and try a new one for next month.
This is the Wicce Witch Box for January 2016
Along with the items were awesome details on the herbs, spells, stories and insights. I was very surprised at how much I loved this subscription actually! I felt they did an excellent job bringing the herbal pagan to the focus. I am keeping this subscription for at the very least another month because I was very impressed with this months.
The second subscription for January is
The Crafting Magic, Pagan Parcel (UK) For January 2016
cerThis subscription was from the UK so the international shipping costs put it far more expensive than the local one. The reality is that both of these subscriptions are around the same cost initially.
There was also a recipe, and a few spells/blessings. There was a strong lack of item descriptions (the Brigid reeds had ZERO explanation aside from "reeds to make your own Brigid's cross") I certainly didn't hate the items by any means but I felt it came up short compared to the Wicce box this month.
Due to the international costs and the slightly underwhelming items this is the sub I am parting ways after this month and will be trying a new subscription next month!
This project is fun.
