Here’s the Box Breakdown
Our first glimpse inside the Handmade Hive Box.
Everything that we received in our Handmade Hive Box for July. This box is in collaboration with Thistle Farms. Thistle Farms offers hope and healing for women survivors of traffiking prostitution and addiction through a holistic residential program and employment opportunities. They’re also building a global community dedicated to changing the ideology that women can be bought and sold. Their body products are handmade with love – because love heals.
So what is all this stuff?
Our box insert – this details each item we received along with retail values
And a little card that explains Thistle Farms
This Vanilla Vetiver candle smells amazing! We received the deep and complex Vanilla Vetiver but they also offer a Lavender and Citrus Wood option.
These candles are HUGE at 7.5 ounces. Each day at the Thistle Farm Headquarters members light a candle to symbolize welcoming and sanctuary for the next women to walk through the doors of Thistle Farms
Liquid Hand Soap
Our favorite item to receive is liquid hand soap – probably because with a family of six we seem to go through it so quickly but also we just love to have all that variety! This bottle has 8 ounces of mild and calming lavender scented soap made by the women at Thistle Farms
Thistle Farms Hand Lotion
This 8 ounce bottle of lotion has a pump (which makes us super happy) and smells amazingly of calming lavender. It matches perfectly with the hand soap and we have to say, that we love the lightweight formula. It’s great for everyday use!
Thistle Farms Lavender Linen Spray
A great addition to this box this Lavender linen spray is sure to help you catch some much needed zzz’s! It’s important to note that all Thistle Farm products are made from all natural ingredients and essential oils – so you can feel good using them!
Thistle Farms Citrus Wood Room Spray
This room spray adds a bright pop to any room! We are so in love with this Citrus Wood scent. We love that we received each of the three scents that Thistle Farm offers. While this is great for your home – we also think this would be great in a car! With all our kids … it can kind of get funky in there sometimes but this smells so bright it will be a great way to freshen it up a bit!
So in summary
We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation and presentation. The Handmade Hive Box is always amazing and while this month was a little different than most it did not disappoint! We love that they took this month as an opportunity to support a worthy cause! The presentation is awesome – everything is packaged well and arrives perfectly. The quality is amazing. We love that Thistle Farms uses all natural ingredients and really makes products that work without all the chemicals. And curation – there was one of everything! A great variety of many staple items! We love that they chose to work with Thistle Farms and think this was a stellar month!
As far as box economy the Handmade Hive Box costs $44 and for that we received $69.50 in items which is an incredible deal!
