I recently found out that BuddhiBox has started offering their subscribers a vegan box option. How cool is that? When you sign up, you simply check a box indicating that you prefer vegan items and you’re good to go. Easy peasy!
If you’re new to them, BuddhiBox is a subscription box that focuses on yoga and healthy living. Each month you’ll receive 4-6 full sized products to assist in your yoga practice, as well as everyday life. All products are from ethical, socially conscious companies and a portion of all boxes sold is donated to a different non-profit organization every month.
Subscriptions are $30.95/month or less with multi-month commitments. They also offer a sample box for $11.95/month that includes 2-3 product samples and coupons.
Let’s see what’s in March’s (vegan) BuddhiBox!
As always, the actual box comes shipped inside a larger, sturdier one.
The inner box is always about the same size and features a green color scheme.
The info card includes descriptions of each product as well as their retail prices. It also indicates if an item is vegan, organic, or cruelty free. While my info card does list a product made with ghee (not vegan), I actually received a substitute item, which came with its own little info card (which I failed to photograph… Oops!).
Wellness By Helen Yoga Oil ($12) – This was the vegan substitution for the ghee product. It’s an all natural oil blend designed to support inflamed joints and muscles. It contains castor oil, therapeutic grade lemongrass & thyme essential oils, as well as other healing ingredients. The scent is wonderful and reminds me of late summer/early autumn. Way nicer than conventional pain relief creams, that’s for sure.
Mama Kuka YogaSphere Medium Strap ($8) – These handy straps are used to help you achieve various yoga poses. There’s an entire kit available with 8 different straps total and this is just one of them (8″ in length, I believe). It’s great for beginners that need a little extra help reaching their toes, as well as advanced yogis who can utilize them to hold their poses a little longer.
AILA Cosmetics Namaste Nail Lacquer ($17) – I’ve never heard of this brand of polish before, and after looking at their site I’m kinda bummed about the shade I got. They have sooo many pretty colors that this “soft mocha with a glimmer” just seems kinda boring. That said, it does sound like a great brand. The formula is 5-free, gluten-free, paraben-free, and cruelty-free/vegan. Sounds good to me.
BlendBee “Love Oolong Time” Organic Tea ($2.50) – I love tea just as much as I love a good pun/play on words. Win-win here! Love Oolong Time is a blend of premium oolong, peppermint, lavender, licorice root, and hibiscus. A reusable muslin tea bag is also included for your steeping pleasure.
SacredxStones Mini-Mala Bracelet ($10) – This is a handmade mini-mala bracelet with a tassel and matching gemstones. Malas are traditionally used to keep count while reciting mantras or affirmations. They typically consist of 108 beads, but this mini version has just 54 for shorter meditations. I’m not sure it’s something I would personally wear, but I love the concept. Maybe I’ll stash it in my bag and pull it out when I need to get my calm on.
Quinntessentials Hand Sanitizer ($10) – Antibacterial sanitizer spray made with organic ingredients including lemon and rosemary essential oils. I’m a huge fan of both lemon and rosemary scents, but sadly all I could really smell was the strong alcohol scent. Ah well. I’ll still use it.
Every BuddhiBox also includes a different “pose” card each month. This month’s was the Tree Pose.
Another nice mix of mindful products from BuddhiBox. I LOVE that they have an all-vegan box option now. It’s definitely more exciting to open a box knowing you can use everything inside (well, ingredients-wise anyway).
Thinking about signing up for BuddhiBox yourself? — You can save $3 on your first month with coupon code “buddhifriend“!
March 2015 BuddhiBox Review
This is such a fun box to open up cos I’m never sure just what’ll be inside. There’s also always a nice mixture of different products (food, beauty, jewelry, home goods), which is a definite plus.
