Homegrown Collective Subscription Box Review: Our Favorite Subscription Box of 2015!


New Update: Homegrown Collective is offering my readers Free Shipping on their first box with the code GREENSHIP!
The kiddos and I had so much fun making our own soap with Homegrown Collective's "Let Us Make Soap" subscription box!



As you can see, the box was packed full of high-quality ingredients and tools: 3 different melt and pour soap bases, 3 different essential oils (peppermint, lemon grass, and cedar wood), an all natural loofa, a dropper, 3 soap molds, wood stirs, charcoal, a Ball canning jar, organic cacao powder, spearmint, rosemary, and cinnamon sticks.

For my first soap, I decided to use the clear soap base and add cocoa & shea butter, and delicious natural honey (I ate a spoonful and added another to the soap).  I also melted the white soap base and poured it on top.

First step: melt the soap base at 10 second intervals (mine took 30 seconds).  Melt the cocoa and shea, also, and stir about a tablespoon into the soap base. I also added a tablespoon of honey from Holly's Little Farm.
I made a rosemary and spearmint soap, too.  All of them turned out so pretty and smell amazing.  I can't wait to use them!  Especially the honey/shea soaps as I included the luffa with them.  Luffa soaps are incredible!
For the kiddos soap, we used the goat's milk and added a bit of lemon grass essential oil.  We poured the melted soap into various candy molds we had in the junk drawer.  The smaller soaps took about an hour to dry; the bigger ones about 2.

Aren't they awesome?! And they smell amazing!  The kids were thrilled. We loved our soap making experience.  One of my very favorite subscription boxes ever and we have tried so many!
