Each box comes with an info card that has a nice quote printed on the opposite side.
Each box also comes with a vegan recipe and a pose card. The drawing on this month’s “boat pose” is hilarious and very fitting for the season!
October Fields – Nag Champa Candle Tin – Value $7
Yep. That’s definitely nag champa. I like the scent of nag champa, but it can get really overbearing really quickly. The info card recommends using it during meditation, and I agree – that’s the perfect amount of time to enjoy this candle!
October Fields – Organic Vegan Lip Balm – Value $4
Auromere Ayurvedic Massage Oil – Value?
This lip balm is nice and basic – odorless and flavorless – which is good because anyone in the family can use it. I am always happy to have lip balm in a sub box! We go through loads of it! I’m not sure of the value of this massage oil because it is not listed on the info card, but I am excited to force someone to try it out on me. Mommy needs a massage! For real!
Gypsy Soul Organics – Aromatherapy Spray – Value $10
Anything that is labeled “Freak of Nature” automatically piques my interest! That’s great branding! I like this fragrance a lot – it really is energizing. I think it would be best sprayed in a space or on the yoga mat and not on the skin.
Included with this product is a coupon for 20% off orders of $20 or more. Score!
Erin’s faces – Firming Eye Gel – Value $25
I haven’t had a chance to try either of these products yet, but I definitely plan to. I was cleaning a lot over the weekend and my eyes have that puffiness that comes from loads of dust exposure. I’m hoping this eye gel will do the trick! I also like that the sun cream is packaged in amber glass, which is both recyclable and reusable.
Skinny Matcha – Om Blend – $49.95
I am a little bummed that the matcha didn’t make it in time for the shipment, but I’ve already received notice that it’s been shipped. It’s really expensive – I hope that means it’s great! I have been enjoying matcha all summer, and I do believe in its health benefits. I have to say, though, it really does taste like it’s good for you. Yikes!
Also included this month is a postcard promoting Clothing By OWL, a clothier that supports the fight against animal cruelty.
The Verdict: I have been subscribing to BuddhiBox for several months now, and I have really been enjoying their shipments. I do practice yoga regularly, and it’s a nice reminder to try and keep it fresh (both literally and figuratively). My main complaint is that I’ve received very little that is directly involved in the yoga practice. It’s really more about yoga lifestyle items, which is kind of a small portion of my overall lifestyle! Otherwise, I do find that the items included always remind me to keep going and to keep putting 100% of myself into my yoga and meditation practice every day. Sometimes the items even enhance that practice substantially, directly involved or not. Plus the value is wonderful – this month it was over $100 value for $31! That’s awesome!
