Let’s see what’s in my May 2018 BuddhiBox!
A peek inside.
BuddhiBox now sends their “boxes” in reusable canvas bags. Every bag features a new yogi-inspired phrase/mantra each month.
An info card included descriptions of each product as well as their retail prices. It also indicated if an item is vegan, organic, and/or cruelty free.
Matr Boomie Copper Bell ($18)
How neat looking is this little bell? Made by a community in the desert Kutch region of India, this piece is a mini version of the classic bells that farmers would use to identify their livestock. Each bell is hammered into shape from recycled tin & iron sheets and each one has its own unique sound.
“Up’Go” is an essential oil blend designed to stimulate the nervous system and give you a boost of energy/alertness. It includes essential oils of rosemary, orange, grapefruit, peppermint, lemongrass, and bergamot blended with distilled spring water & witch hazel. To use, simply spritz on your body, linens, or into the air as a room spray.
I’ve received this body butter in various subscription boxes over the last few years and while it isn’t my favorite (the scent is a bit too strong for me), it’s still a nice product. Its ultra rich formula contains moisturizing oils of coconut, jojoba, sunflower, vitamin E, and other skin-nourishing ingredients. It’s also paraben, phthalate, and gluten free.
The listed value for this tea on the info card was $16, but the label clearly reads “sample” so I’m guessing that was a typo? Either way, this sounds like some really nice quality tea. The blend consists of Greek Mountain Tea (sideritis scardica) aka “Nectar of the Gods”, lemon balm, peppermint, and sage. It offers many health benefits including improved digestion, a strengthened immune system, suppression of the common cold & sinus congestion, and more.
I don’t typically use facial mists, but this one actually sounds like something I’d try. It’s made with just 2 simple ingredients: organic peppermint leaf/flower/stems and distilled water. Spritz it on your face after the gym, when you wake up, or any time you could use a boost of hydration and calming aromatherapy.
Original Way Honey Calcite Crystal ($6)
This pretty honey-colored crystal can help bring about a new sense of self-worth, aid in recovery from difficult situations, or to simply keep you feeling strong and confident. Tuck it in your purse to carry its good vibes with you throughout the day.
This month’s featured yoga pose was “Uttanasana” (aka Standing Forward Bend). Full “instructions” were included on the reverse side of the card.
Another fun collection of yoga-inspired goodies from BuddhiBox! My favorite items were the Matr Boomie copper bell, Oiliving Up’Go spray, body butter, and Delia Organics facial mist. The total value of everything in May’s box was just under $70! 🙂 — Thinking about signing up for BuddhiBox yourself? — You can save 20% on your first month with coupon code “yogaaddict“!
