Review: Kalsi Subscription Box
I had seen a few adverts around social media for witchcraft/pagan subscription boxes, some themed to the sabbats, others general monthly boxes. I was intrigued, because who doesn't like getting nice witchy presents through the post?
I decided to order a selection to compare and share my findings and thoughts with you. They are all UK based (although most of them do ship worldwide), I did look at USA based subscriptions (and there are some really brilliant looking ones to try) but unfortunately the cost of shipping was almost as much as the box (not the fault of the companies involved, just standard shipping costs).
I don't like writing bad reviews as such, but for something like this I am just presenting to you all the information, you can make your choice from there.
I went slighty off topic here, not witchy but boxes of ayurveda goodies themed to your own dosha. There is an online test to take to decide what dosha you are specifically (on their website) and then you pick the box that matches. Mine came out as pitta (the fiery one!).
Kalsi Dosha - Subscription box price: £33.25 plus p&p (slightly cheaper if you take out a 3, 6 or 12 month plan).
Delivered on: Within the first five days of each month
Coconut water (raspberry flavour)
Buff naked sea salt body scrub
Ayurveda pura saffron & cardamom tea
Patchouli jumbo incense cones & cone holder
Terre Verdi body oil (30ml)
Urban Veda Sandalwood & botanics body lotion (50ml)
Vandevi yellow powder (compunded asafoetida)
A really nice box full of lovely goodies. The tea is delicious. The Buff body scrub is lush, smells divine and leaves the skin feeling incredibly soft. The body lotion is also really nice and the body oil smells fabulous. Patchouli is one of my favourite scents and the cones are huge, nice touch to include a little stone holder for them. Have not used the yellow powder yet (you add it as seasoning to lentils and veggies) but will give it a try. Coconut water isn't a particular favourite of mine but all the other goodies were really nice quality and decent sizes.
This isn't a bargain deal box, but you get what you pay for, I totalled the individual items and it came to approximately what I paid for the box.
A nice monthly feel good present to yourself.
My favourite item: The body scrub and the incense.
