Homegrown Collective Review – January 2013 – Home Remedies and Cure-alls
January’s Homegrown Collective theme was Home Remedies and Cure-alls. Perfect timing for flu season!
This is the first time I ever opened up a subscription box to find a plant! (This awesome aloe plant is now making its home in my living room).
The Box: The Homegrown Collective
The Cost: $39 a month plus $9 shipping (Free shipping and free month with annual subscription)
The Products: Green products and projects that allow you to be more self-sufficient.
I love that everything is organic! Also, the box included a pamphlet explaining how these different herbs help to improve immune function and limit the span of a cold!
From the Home Grown Collective:
Today, the health benefits of oregano oil are known far and wide. The oil has several crucial minerals like beta-carotene, niacin and copper, along with antioxidants and various other nourishing nutrients. It also contains Carvacrol, a powerful anti-microbial chemical; Flavonoids, which have natural antiseptic properties and Terpenes, which are natural anti-inflammatory agents. Being a combination of such diverse and potent components, the uses of oregano oil are diverse and many. and if you have caught a flu or cold, the oil has superb microbial properties, that can kill most viruses and other germs on contact, helping your body fight against those harmful diseases.
CINNAMON traditionally, due to its medicinal properties, has been used in many cultures for treating a variety of health disorders including diarrhea, arthritis,
menstrual cramps, heavy menstruation, yeast infections, colds, flu,and digestive problems.
I love ginger! I usually just have a jar of pre-minced ginger in my fridge, but having it fresh is so much better!
Verdict: Homegrown Collective is such a unique subscription box – and I love it! I always learn something new from the information they provide in each kit, and I love that you can use all the products as-is, or you can try out some of the products they recommend. What do you think of the Homegrown Collective?
