Homegrown Collective Box February 2014

Today I received my Homegrown Collective GREENBOX!  I was so excited because this is my first one and I am also gifting a three month subscription to my mother-in-law for her 40th wedding anniversary.

The Cost: $39.99/month plus shipping

What You'll Get: Homegrown Collective strives to deliver seasonally appropriate, professionally curated products that deliver satisfaction of living a more self-sufficient and sustainable lifestyle to your doorstep each month. You will receive a wonderful DIY kit that will get you on the path to "going green".  I can't tell you how much fun it is to do these projects with friends, family and even children.  This is fun for everyone all packed into a small box of wonderful!

The theme for the month is Bee-Amazed!  How sweet it is, honey!
This month is a celebration of our biggest little garden partner, the bee!  Included is all the essentials for making Honey & Sugar Scrub, Beeswax Wood Butter and Honey Beeswax LipBalm!

One thing I love about HomeGrown Collective is how they include everything you need to make each thing in the box.  This month they have even included a glass mixing bowl!  It is also very well packed.  Considering this month's box had two glass items, perfect packaging is important!

Contents: 6oz Raw Honey (very hard to find it raw, at least in my area!  Do not give to children under 2yrs), 6oz Pure Beeswax, 4oz Grapeseed oil, 8oz Organic Cane Sugar, 4 Dried log slices of Almond and Maple tree, Natural Ixtle Luffa Scrubs and a glass mixing bowl, cotton wipes, honey stirrer, sandpaper, mixing sticks and 2 lip balm containers with lids.
I plan to make some of these tomorrow.  Most likely the lip balm and  Wood Butter.  I will update this post once I do.

Verdict:  I am hooked!  This is a great value.  The Homegrown Collective GREENBOX gets you out of your comfort zone and helps you accomplish things you never would have tried.  It's worth every cent in experience alone!  It also seems a fantastic way to do a project with your kids that teaches as you go.
