The first “task” is to make an evergreen oil lamp.  This looks like it will be very festive for the season!  And side note, they even sent a plastic glove to handle the fiberglass candle with – talk about attention to detail!

Here’s the items for making the lamp (note that the oil was partially frozen! ha!):

Next up was making Cacao and Coconut Almond Milk.  Little less excited about this item (again with the chocolate), but I’m sure husband will enjoy.

THE VERDICT:

Overall – again I’m impressed with the attention to detail in the Homegrown Collective Greenbox!   I’m excited to make these items! 🙂

I did not assign a value to the items in this box, as I am not even certain the correct way to do so.  The box is so well curated that I DEFINITELY feel that it was worth the $39!!  Could I have gone out and purchased the individual items separately for less money?  Probably, but there’s no way I would have come close to joy of opening such a well thought out box!
