I’ve wanted to try Homegrown Collective for months. Finally, I decided I could not wait any longer and signed up for a three-month subscription. I was so thrilled when I got my first box in the mail.

The Product cards and DIYs. This month you could make hot or cold infused oil and balsamic vinegar or use your ingredients for a foot scrub.

The spices

I love that Homegrown Collective only sources local and organic herbs for their boxes.

The containers

I think the containers for the oil and vinegar are incredibly cute.

The extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar

Both taste incredible on their own. The oil has a nice sweet and floral note, while the vinegar has a wonderful tang to it.

The extras

I did not want to use the oil for the foot scrub, so I used the stone using my own ingredients I had at home. All the pieces are really nice quality and I will be able to keep them for ages.

Thoughts: I thought this was a great first box for me, especially since I live off extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar during the summer. I love that they provide different ways to use the ingredients, and two different ways to infuse the oil and vinegar, depending on your comfort level. I did not include values because the true value of this box rests in the project more than anything else. I can’t wait until I can get next month’s box! What do you think of Homegrown Collective?

    I’ve never been interested in the craft subs before, but I love that this one results in something useful. I hope during your vacation you’ll have a chance to mention what your next two boxes hold because now I’m curious!
