I could write a love song about this subscription box. I’m drawn to three things that seal the deal for me when it comes to making a purchase: aesthetic, quality, and sustainability. Goddess Provisions covers all these bases. Each month, their purpled hued box comes to your doorstep, boxes have their own theme and February’s revolved around “Faerie.” I loved that February was themed around something magical and curative. As you will see in the featured products below, each product really correlates to self love. It’s not about looking your best but feeling your best by rejuvenating (think baths, medicinal mushrooms, and flower water)
Each box will contain 5-7 products that are full sized (which is ideal for me because I don’t like the idea of trial sized products that can accumulate and leave waste). All of the products are vegan, cruelty free, and free shipping (worldwide as well).
By nature, I am a visual person. I gravitate toward sight, sounds, and ambiance. This also applies to food! When you bring playfulness into the equation it makes activities livelier, at least in my opinion!
I remember seeing variations on little forest animal toasts. I couldn’t help but swoon over the interpretations of creatures + fauna on edibles (be it lattes, cookies, etc) I think it’s an inventive way for encouraging creativity in the kitchen no matter your age. After all I did top mine with colorful flower crowns because it seemed proper to add an enchanting element.
Simple Kneads is a gluten free bakery where the precious artisanal loaves are baked in small batches at their dedicated gluten free facility in North Carolina. Simple Kneads was created by Tristaun LeClaire whose son developed an allergic reaction to gluten, thus driving him to craft a delicious bread that could also be enjoyed by all. This touched my heart for a similar reason: when I found out I could no longer consume wheat or gluten, you do notice how many edibles are cut out and you truly do miss it, both the taste and the experience.
Collagen, it’s been everywhere lately. From lattes to broths and everything in between. What is collagen exactly? It’s a combination of (but not a complete protein) amino acids that help construct muscle, bone, cartilage, skin, hair, and connective tissue. Factually our bodies produce collegan but it declines we age, so I wanted to find a plant based collagen (was that even possible?) Most edible collagen is not plant-based; they are typically obtained from animal bone/animal cartilage.
Anima Mundi Apothecary formulated a Plant Based Collagen Powder, made with botanicals such as horsetail and nettles which helps build the body’s own natural production of collagen with collagen co-nutrients such as silica and calcium. This blend of Anima Mundi’s Vegan Collagen is completely plant-based. I like that these blend of herbs are meant to help your body boost its production of collagen. Since plants like stinging nettles and horsetail naturally contain calcium and silica, it’s a botanically convenient way to add a boost (remember, our body naturally makes collagen!) The human body creates its own collagen so adding nutrients that will help* slow down your loss of collagen
A quick rundown some of the herbs + botanicals in the Plant Based Collagen powder
Here is an updated version of this years zero waste dental products I love + some new to me. When it comes to zero waste I chose to live by example and it certainly requires thought and execution. Being mindful of what we purchase and its lifespan offers us insight to what choices we make. At the end of the day I like to reflect on how much trash I did, or didn’t produce. At the beginning of each day I try to reflect on what I hope to achieve, invite, and value.
As y’all know, I love exploring and studying the benefits of botanicals + plants and their uses. Living Libations is a Canadian-based company who dedicate themselves to meaningfully creating botanical based products for our body + mind. Their oral care products featured here are full of anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal properties and I love them! I hope they integrate bigger sizes for bulk buying. Most of their products are vegan, and everything featured here is vegan!
