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!
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.
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.
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! 🙂
