Apothecary Items: Aphrodite’s Kiss Lip Gloss, Rose Water
Candles: Pink Self-Love Candle, Red Aphrodite Offering Candle
Crystal: Rose Quartz
Herb: Rosebuds
Incense: Strawberry
Tea: Love Spell
Other Items: February 2020 Moon in the Astrology Calendar, Aphrodite Artwork and Invocation, Aphrodite Statue, Rose Quartz Pendant Necklace, 3 Seashells, Teaspoon Wand

My Thoughts
February’s Aphrodite Sacred Space Crate was my first experience with this relatively new monthly subscription box. I’ve been watching YouTube reviews and really like what has been included in past boxes, especially the apothecary items. Sadly, February’s box did not live up to my expectations in regards to quality. I had planned on doing a full review of each item but will instead give a synopsis of my experience because I’ve cancelled the subscription.

Let me start with the items I liked: the Aphrodite statue, calendar, candles, rose quartz necklace, seashells, tea, and teaspoon. Tea and candles are always appreciated, and I adore the statue, though it does have a strange odor somewhat like spray paint (I have a freakishly sensitive sense of smell so I don’t hold that against them).

If you’ve read my other reviews you will know I dislike most incense. This month’s strawberry incense has a pleasant aroma (unlit), but it makes my eyes water. I don’t hold that against them either, I know it is a “me” problem.

The final three items for February were disappointing: the jar of rosebuds, lip gloss, and rose water. My jar of dried rosebuds contains crushed petals and tiny bits. I was expecting to receive whole rosebuds as others had received. As for the lip gloss, it looks enticing but has a plastic roller ball instead of metal and it doesn’t work. The mixture is lovely though and the flow of blended elements is mesmerizing when I tilt the bottle back and forth! Finally, the rose water. My dissatisfaction centers mostly on the aroma, which is a bit off. Perhaps it is just an odd batch, but I don’t care for it.

While this subscription is still rather new to the market and they might be working out some kinks, receiving items I perceive to be of lesser quality is disheartening. To be fair, I fully realize I am a harsh critic. I’ve worked in the advertising industry and I am currently a web developer, so it is literally my job to notice the small details such as colors, packaging, presentation, typography, variations, etc. – details matter!

Per the included paperwork, Sacred Space Crate will be focusing on goddesses for the remainder of 2020. While I do not worship any of the goddesses, I don’t mind receiving a box pertaining to them now and then. Simply put, I have no interest in a monthly goddess box and this influenced my decision to cancel.

I will note that the box was packaged very nicely, had detailed paperwork explaining each item, and arrived quickly. Aside from my issues with the quality of a few items, Sacred Space Crate feels like a good value overall. I am curious to see how this subscription service evolves past this year.

Sacred Space Crate is a monthly subscription containing “handcrafted and Spell crafted items for all your Sacred Spaces”. The current US price is $54 a month, including shipping.

The Witches Moon May 2019 – The Adorned Goddess

May 11, 2019
Posted in

Artwork: Aphrodite Book of Shadows Page
Crystal: None
Herbs: Jasmine Buds, Raspberry Leaf, Rose Petals
Incense: Attraction
Magickal Anointing Oil: Aphrodite
Personalized Oracle Reading: Flow card from the Oracle of the Unicorns
Sacred Salt: Litha
Spell Candle: The Amare
Other Items: Empowerment & Manifestation Necklace, Mother of Pearl Shell Box, Passion Enhancement Sigil, Ritual Book of Shadows Paper

My Thoughts
May’s Witches Moon, The Adorned Goddess, has blessed us with an abundance of offerings. The featured deity is Aphrodite and her Book of Shadows Page contains all the pertinent information (pay particular attention to the necklace she is wearing). It is worth noting that a different paper stock was used for the May information pages.

My personalized oracle reading is the Flow card. “Find an easier path forward” is the first line on the card, which cuts close to the bone because I am currently stuck in a mire of complications. The card’s artwork is stunning, with mesmerizing shades of green.

A Passion Enhancement Sigil has also been included in the May box.

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways using the Empowerment & Manifestation necklace (mala), which is knotted with amethyst, rose quartz, and freshwater pearls. Though I personally do not use malas as intended, it is a beautiful necklace and I am grateful to receive it.

The Adorned Goddess’s pièce de résistance is a mother of pearl shell box. I was stunned when I saw this gorgeous creation – magical is the only way to describe it! The sides and bottom of the box incorporate thin shavings of beautiful abalone and the interior has a velvety lining.

There is no crystal for May 2019.

For the second month in a row we received two rolled tapers instead of a single beeswax candle, with the spell placed in the box on top of the artwork. The Amare spell candles are a delicate shade of pink and have been dressed with jasmine, patchouli, and rose oils, with the addition of Divine Connection and Passion magickal oils from the Witches Moon’s personal cabinet of witchery, and then rolled in jasmine and rose petals.

Jasmine buds, raspberry leaf, and rose petals are the featured herbs and patchouli-scented Attraction is May’s incense.

Aphrodite, the magickal anointing oil, contains jasmine, rose, patchouli, and sweet marjoram oils, with a Lemurian quartz, blood root, hibiscus, jasmine, and rose petal inclusions. Come To Me magickal oil from the Witches Moon’s personal cabinet of witchery is also blended into this floral concoction.

Litha sacred salt has been infused with bergamot, orange, and rose oils. Also included in this delightful blend is Midsummer magickal oil from the Witches Moon’s personal cabinet of witchery, along with hawthorn, hyssop, lavender, and St. John’s wort herbal snippings.

The Adorned Goddess is yet another amazing box from The Witches Moon. Their consistency in providing quality, useful items is unsurpassed!

The Witches Moon is a monthly subscription containing high-quality spiritual items crafted around the seasons. The current US price is $54 a month, including shipping.
