Let’s see what’s in my May 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.
BuddhiBox “Follow Your Bliss” Cuff ($25)
This simple silver cuff is inscribed with the phrase “Follow Your Bliss” — a quote from writer & mythologist Joseph Campbell. BuddhiBox included this to serve as a reminder to always “follow your bliss and don’t be afraid, and doors will open where you didn’t know they were going to be”. Nice!
Elements of Aliel Green Beau-Tea Blend Tea ($10)
A tasty tea blend consisting of green tea, rose petals, and rose hips. While green tea is great for your health, it’s also beneficial for your skin by acting as a natural detoxifier. Steep 1-2 tablespoons of this blend for 3-5 minutes to reap its many benefits.
Elements of Aliel Rose Mask ($15)
Ideal for sensitive skin, this facial mask is made from bentonite, rose hip powder, beet root powder, and kaolinite (rose clay). It’s high in both vitamins A and C which work together to improve skin tone and texture. To use, simply combine 1/2 tablespoon of clay mix with 1 tablespoon of water until smooth. Apply to the face until almost dry and rinse.
Selenite Healing Crystal ($10)
According to the info card, selenite crystals are high vibration stones that will move your spiritual growth forward and can help to relieve stress & anxiety. They can also be placed in the home to aid in the removal of negative energy.
The Happy Yogi Watercolor Print ($10)
A beautiful watercolor print featuring the silhouette of a yogi in dancer pose on top of a green and turquoise blurry background. It measures 5 x 7 inches and is perfect for displaying near your preferred yoga spot.
My Mat, My Mantra Magnet ($8?)
The info card listed this as a “Mantra Spot” sticker to be applied to your yoga mat, but it’s actually a magnet. I actually like the idea of a magnet better, since you can slap it on your fridge and get a constant reminder to “get your buddhi on the mat” when you find yourself reaching for something unhealthy. 😉
Bare Ethics Massage & Body Oil (Sample)
Also included was a small sample of 100% natural massage & body oil made with cold-pressed oils & pure essential oils.
This month’s featured yoga pose was “Ananda Balasana” aka Happy Baby Pose. Full “instructions” were included on the reverse side of the card.
May’s BuddhiBox included a nice assortment of health & wellness items for yogis and non-yogis alike. My favorite items this time were the green tea, silver cuff, and watercolor print. The total value of everything this month was just under $80! 🙂
