Earth Wax & Fire July 2017

Earth Wax and Fire is an Israeli subscription that sends out an artisanal candle and a matching ceramic bowl.  You can get a month-to-month plan, or go for a 3,6, or12-month plan.  Plans start at $27.00 a month but go down with the longer ones.  Shipping to here was an additional $11.00 a month.  This normally would be above my comfort price but I signed up on Mother’s Day weekend and they had a 50% code for a 6-month plan.  That definitely made the decision easier.  I have a candle burning every evening so I am on the lookout for them always.  The pictures they have on their site were beautiful so I have hopes for this box.

Once again this box showed up carefully wrapped and packed so that none of the highly fragile items inside shift and break.

They wrap the candle in its own little package and all the other items come in the little bag.  They also have little cards that tell you about each of the items included, a code to get a discount on previous combos, and a handwritten note that hopes I like the items this month.

Velvet Crystal Soap Rolls

These say they are made specifically for scenting drawers and cupboards.  I”m sure you can use them as soap as well if you wanted to.  They are scented with amber crystal and ISO-E-SUPER, whatever that is.  It is a nice smell and I think it would give anything you stored in the drawer with it.  They are handmade by people in a rehabilitative hospital in Isreal.

Handmade Ceramic Greenery Bowl

This shade of green is based on the Color Of The Year by Pantone.  The glaze is applied over speckled mustard clay and kiln fired to become dishwasher safe.  You can burn the candle on it and then use the bowl for pretty much anything afterward and it is safe to use with food items like condiments or spices.

Spring Peach Delight Candle

I really like the candles I have received from this box.  They are well made and highly scented.  This one has the essence of peach, rose, jasmine, and French patchouli.  It smells great and sexy, actually.  It is not overpoweringly peach at all, even though they have named the candle after it.  This candle has about a 40 hour burn time.

I am so impressed with this box.  The level of detail provided and the care in selecting and packing it is first class.  They have reached out a few times to see what my choices would be and been polite and friendly each time.  I know this is a slightly higher priced subscription when it’s not on sale but I honestly believe it would be worth it.  You can currently save 10% off a plan using the code SAVE10 at checkout.
