The first thing I noticed when I opened the box was the incredible aroma! That Amor incense is potent and divine - as much as I liked last month's Moon incense, this month's scent was bursting with so much more fragrance! I also received a green candle with an affirmation for prosperity. Obviously green is usually associated with money, but did you know that in some cultures green is also associated with love? Not the passionate firey love of the color red, but a love of nature and of the earth as a whole. This box literally contained universal love! Additionally, my box contained a couple Stash teas, which were calming and delicious, and a bit of a sneak peak from the upcoming March "Moon Goddess" box: a beautifully illustrated card from the Moon Phases Oracle deck from Mystic Moons Tarot!
What Sapphire Soul box wouldn't be complete without one of Allison's little fortune papers? This one says "sometimes, you find yourself in the middle of nowhere, and sometimes, in the middle of nowhere, you find yourself." I've said it before and I'll say it again: this woman gets me. Every box finds an amazing way to speak directly to my soul, and this was one of those spine-tingling moments when I could literally feel the universe sending me a message through my Sapphire Soul box. The sensation only intensified when I found my pair of Adam Rabbit earrings, which are my amethyst birthstone! And of course, no self-respecting Valentine's box leaves chocolate out of the equation! I ate my candy before I even got around to my video review...
Speaking of chocolate - the inspiration for the main feature of the Valentine's Magic box should look familiar! Allison put a great twist on the traditional box-of-chocolates by swapping out sweets for stones, making this the perfect gift for any crystal junkie. Each of the seven stones included in my tray came with an information card to identify the crystal and explain its powers. What a great way to grow a collection! I especially loved the abalone shell (lower left). I also got a small bottle of gem-infused essential oil. For anyone new to Sapphire Soul, Allison loves to infuse the power of crystals into sprays, oils, and even writing implements! It's a great little way to add an extra burst of positive energy to any package.
Every month, I am blown away by how well-done these Sapphire Soul boxes are. The themes are relevant and modern, the items included are always on-point, and the thoughtfulness and care with which each box is created is readily apparent the moment I open the lid. It's been many years since I was last invested in my own spirituality at a level that made me feel fulfilled and happy, but thanks to these boxes I am rapidly finding my way back to my old soul. The March Moon Goddess box, and the NEW Boho-Luxe Quarterly box, sold out quick, and it's very easy to understand why! Up next is the April "Gypsy Soul" box, and guess what? They're almost gone! Hop over to Sapphire Soul to reserve yours ASAP so you don't have to miss out on another month of magic!
