The Homegrown Collective, who kindly sent me this box to review, includes seasonally appropriate, professionally curated products that deliver the satisfaction of living a more self-sufficient & sustainable lifestyle to your doorstep each month.
The Homegrown Collective ships via USPS Priority Mail. I typically receive the boxes towards the very end of the month or a few days into the following month.
As you can see, everything is packed very securely and with lots of packing materials. They send a lot of glass items, so the packaging materials are a must.
The July 2014 Homegrown Collective theme was DIY, Summer “Essential” Home Detox and included the following projects:
~Essential DIY – Air Fresheners: This may have been the easiest (and my favorite) Homegrown Collective project ever. All you had to do was add warm water to the spray bottle and essential oils. And you have air freshener. Why didn’t I realize it was that easy before? I opted for the sweet mandarin for my air freshener scent and it’s amazing!
~Essential DIY Oil Diffusers: This was another quite easy project! You were suppose to add a “carrier” oil such as almond grapeseed or safflower, but I didn’t have any of those on hand (I wish they would have included it) and then add essentials oils. Instead I used whatever random oil I could find in the cupboard and I think it worked fine. I will admit that I used a lot of essential oil, but whatever.
~DIY Essential Oil Candles: I have made candles before (and maybe even from Homegrown Collective), but this was easily my favorite candle project. You melt the wax in the microwave, mix in the essential oils, secure the wick in the candle jar, pour the wax in and that’s it! It smells amazing and looks gorgeous. If I saw / smelled this at the store I would probably buy it!
This was probably one of my favorite Homegrown Collective boxes to date. The projects were quick and easy to do, but the results were amazing!
