Let’s see what’s in my March 2017 BuddhiBox!
A peek inside.
The info card includes descriptions of each product as well as their retail prices. It also indicates if an item is vegan, organic, and/or cruelty free. Every month a portion of their sales are given to a different charity. (Usually I get an email with info about the current month’s charity, but I never received one for March’s box.)
Triloka Herbal Incense & Wooden Holder Set ($12)
Triloka’s herbal incense sticks are handmade in India by fair trade cottage industry partners. Each one is hand-rolled using a blend of sandalwood, herbs, gums, resins, woods, and oils which is then dried in the sun. BuddhiBox included an assorted pack which featured lavender, frankincense & myrrh, patchouli, sandalwood, and Hawaiian high. Along with the incense was also a wooden holder with inlaid gold stars and a peace sign.
Pranayums “spice shots” contain a daily super spice boost inspired by Ayurveda. Each packet includes a blend of turmeric, black pepper, cardamom, ginger, cinnamon, and other spices to help “feed your life force”. Add it to oatmeal, smoothies, or coffee for a quick boost of flavor and nutrition.
These vegan-friendly, alcohol-free feet wipes are great for freshening up after yoga or a day at the beach. They’re peppermint scented and infused with aloe & Vitamin E to sooth the skin while leaving them smelling fresh.
Love ROWAN Vegan Leather Antler Pendant ($25)
This pendant was created to support “Antlers for Orphans”, a campaign started by Love ROWAN (Rural Orphans & Widows AIDS Network) to sell shed antlers in Uganda to provide education funding for orphans. We actually received this same item back in December 2015, so I wasn’t too stoked to see it again. :/
These non-GMO supplements are formulated to reduce the appearance of wrinkles & fine lines, improve skin elasticity, nourish healthy hair and build strong nails. They’re vegetarian friendly (not sure of vegan), and contain no animal byproducts, gelatin or sugars.
Please Notes Labels of Love Water Bottle Labels ($15?)
The info card listed these as being “mat stickers”, so I’m not sure if the value above is still correct for this water bottle label version. The double-sided labels feature a different feeling on the front, with an affirmation printed on the back.
Zico Coconut Water (BuddhiBox Bonus Snack, $4)
This was listed on the info card as a “bonus snack”. I’m all about bonuses, but I noticed the bottle looked a little beat up/worn… I checked the “Best by” date and was kinda disappointed that it was March 12th, right around when I received the box. 🙁
This month’s featured yoga pose was “Crescent Moon Pose”. Full “instructions” were included on the reverse side of the card.
I gotta say, this was honestly one of my least favorite BuddhiBoxes to date. A lot of the items felt like filler items and I noticed that some of the values listed on the info card were way over-inflated (specifically the wipes & incense/holder). I was also bummed about getting a repeat item (the necklace) and an almost expired beverage. Here’s hoping April’s box makes up for this disappointing offering!
