Such so-called "new age" accoutrements like crystals, incense, and healing herbs have actually been around for centuries...so what do they have in common with the very modern phenomenon of subscription boxes? Not only are both seemingly unrelated things extremely popular at the moment, but there are more and more monthly (or quarterly) boxes available that just happen to be filled with the aforementioned ancient tools of spirituality and self-care. In need of a regular reminder to connect with your nature or the universe or your inner self? These pampering, new age subscription boxes will speak straight to the crystal-loving goddess in you.
Maybe this year's eventful eclipse season sparked an interest in the moon's influence on your life and you're looking for ways to sync up with the cycles of the planets (especially dealing with all those retrogrades). Maybe you've been meaning to get more into meditation but you just need a little extra inspiration. Maybe, many years ago (before your house was taken over by overflowing laundry baskets and toys and half-eaten snacks), you actually used to have a pretty decent collection of all these new age-y type things, but... who knows where it all went? (Fact: There's an undeniable nostalgia element to some of these subscription boxes for Gen X moms. Um, remember The Craft?)
Whatever draws you to these subscription boxes, they're undeniably fun... and a great excuse to commit to a little bit of time just for you on a regular basis.
