Vellabox is a subscription box that specializes in high quality candles which they send to your door every month.
Every Vellabox will feature all natural, clean-burning candles made by American artisans. They’ll also be non-toxic, lead-free, and likely hand poured. There are 3 different box sizes to choose from: The Lucerna, The Ignis, and The Vivere. The Lucerna box will include one candle (approximately 4 ounces) each month with a burn time of approx. 25 hours. The Ignis box will include one candle (approximately 8 ounces) with a burn time of approx. 50 hours. Finally, The Vivere box will feature two candles (totaling approximately 12 ounces) with a burn time of approx. 75 hours. Each box will also come with a small surprise gift.
Subscriptions are $10/month (plus $2 shipping) for The Lucerna, $20/month (plus $2 shipping) for The Ignis, and $30/month (free shipping) for The Vivere. Vellabox ships only within the US at this time.
Let’s see what’s in the July 2016 “The Vivere” Vellabox!
The candles were all tucked inside a bright yellow box.
A peek inside. — Very summery! (Note: I didn’t realize that the photo/card attached to the lid was actually an info card until turning it over about 2 minutes ago. Whoops!)
Each candle was wrapped in pretty fabric and tied with a white string.
1502 Candle Co. Red Currant & Rose (included in Lucerna & Vivere) – I normally don’t enjoy floral scents, but the red currant is definitely the standout here. I can detect just a hint of rose petals, along with jasmine (which I love). 1502 Candle Co. is based in San Diego and uses all natural/biodegradable soy wax which is poured into these repurposed/recycleable travel tins.
Pure Plant Home Italian Bergamot & Persian Lime (included in Ignis & Vivere) – Mmm! As a major fan of anything citrus, this bergamot & lime candle is hands down my favorite of the two. (Luckily for me, it’s also the bigger one. 😉 ) Also made in California (Santa Ana), this 7-ounce candle features an exclusive coconut wax blend, along with essential oils derived from cold-pressed citrus fruits. The scent combination is specially designed to promote positive energy and stress relief. Sounds good to me!
Go Raw Lemon Pie Sprouted Cookies (July Bonus, all boxes) – I’ve had these “cookies” a few times before, but I believe this is the first time I’ve gotten the lemon flavor. As a citrus lover, I’m certainly not complaining. 🙂 These are made with just four organic ingredients: coconut, sprouted sesame seeds, dates, and lemon oil. They’re also gluten-free and 100% vegan.
I absolutely loved July’s Vellabox! If you’re a regular reader, you already know that candles are one of my favorite things to get in subscription boxes. — So an entire box dedicated to them is something I don’t think I’d ever tire of. 😉 Of course the fact that Vellabox sources only all-natural, clean burning candles is a big plus, as is the little bonus gift included in each box. 🙂
