BuddhiBox Subscription Box Review – October 2015
BuddhiBox is a monthly subscription box for yogis. Every month, they will send you products to enhance your yoga practice and lifestyle. They only partner with businesses that follow ethical and conscious standards of production. Additionally, a portion of all boxes sold goes to benefit a nonprofit, and this month’s recipient is The Circuelle Foundation in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Every month, BuddhiBox sends an info card with a nice quote on the reverse side, a yoga pose card, and a vegan recipe. I always learned this pose as “child’s pose,” and I’m not very good at it. Fortunately, the reverse side of the card has some good tips for achieving the benefits of this pose.
This is the info card that was included, detailing the items in this month’s box.
Chakra Healing Bag by Energy Muse – Value $20
I am super excited about this little bag of gems! I love chakra stones and crystals, and having one for each chakra in a little bag is so convenient and portable. And so pretty!
On the back of the card from the bag is some information about the meaning of each stone, plus instructions on how to use the kit. This is so handy!
Intention Candle by In Light + Love Candles – Value $12
This candle is a blend of vanilla, coconut, magnolia, and lavender, and it smells terrific! It also came at a really good time as I have been trying to set aside a day each month for intention setting.
Thieves Blend by Optimal Health Oil – Value $10
I am also excited to try this oil. It’s called thieves blend because thieves during the black plague used it to get immunity when they robbed the dead! That’s pretty sinister, but the reality of this little potion is that cinnamon, clove, eucalyptus, rosemary and lemon kills 99.96% of airborne bacteria (according to the info card). Cold and flu season is coming, and it’s always so hard on my family! I’m spraying this stuff everywhere!
Towel Set with Eco Sack by People Towels – Value $11
Oh my gosh, I love, love, love the design on these little hand towels! I almost hate to use them! BUT, I also love the idea of skipping the wasteful paper towels when I’m out, so I guess I will have to use them.
I am absolutely blown away by this concept and product. The Circuelle Foundation is a nonprofit that aims to help prevent breast cancer through education, and this is a cream they make to spread on your breasts during your monthly self-exam. It’s such a simple and wonderful idea, I can’t believe this doesn’t already exist in every woman’s bathroom! It’s a luxurious cream (featuring organic green tea, vitamins D&E, evening primrose oil, and essential oils) intended to pamper you and also support your monthly ritual of the breast self-exam. Plus it leaves your skin feeling super soft! You can get free samples (just pay shipping) at the link above.
The Verdict: Somehow my box was missing an item – a Sweat Wicking Headband by Jiva Clothing (Value $10) [http://www.thejivashop.com/products/sweat-wicking-headband?variant=5779835139]. Not to worry, I will email customer service and I’m sure they will pop one in the mail for me right away. I have had nothing but wonderful experiences with BuddhiBox’s customer service! Other than that, this was my favorite BuddhiBox ever! The values of the items even without the headband comes to $53, which is great for a $31 box. This particular box, though, was really special and very well curated. I usually like most things I receive from BuddhiBox, but this month I am really super excited about almost everything!
