This month’s theme is Bloom.  The box contains items to help subscribers open themselves up “to grow and blossom.”  There were seven items in this month’s box.

Bloom Naturals Hand Relief – $18

This is a great, all natural hand cream made from raw shea butter, see almond oil, avocado oil, extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, grapefruit seed oil, meadowfoam oil, lavender oil, grapefruit oil, moringa seed oil.  I think it is my new favorite hand cream (and I have a lot of them.)  It doesn’t rub in perfectly as raw shea butter is quite thick and it has that shea butter smell but the other oils add a scent too and I like it!

The Wonder Seed Facial Scrub – $15

I used this last night.  It is clear and a bit gelatinous.  It’s on the thinner side of a facial scrub but I find you have to be ready for different textures and smells when you use all natural products.  I don’t mind it at all and I really liked the scrub.  Of course, there are no parabens, sulfates, gluten, artificial colors or fragrances.  The scrub is scented with water lotus essential oil and for me that scent was so light that it was almost imperceptible.  The Wonder Seed website says hemp seed oil is “easily absorbed by the skin and is one of the world’s richest sources of essential fatty acids (EFA’s) which are at an optimal balance for human absorption.”

Floracopeia Helichrysum Italicum Hydrosol – $12

This is a facial mist to use after cleansing or any time you want to refresh throughout the day.  I like to use facial mists in the morning as a pick-me-up and this is one supposed to be kept in the refrigerator so it’s even cooler when you spray it on.  The Floracopeia website says this spray is a “soothing organic hydrosol with a delicate, herbaceous aroma.”  Well, this morning I sprayed it on myself, my husband and my daughter and all I can say is “herbaceous” is a nice word for it.  It’s not unpleasant but certainly isn’t pleasant either.  The smell won’t keep me from using the product but I think some people (maybe many) won’t like it.  To me, the scent is like tobacco leaves (I used to live in Kentucky), my husband says it smells like molasses and my 6 year old daughter said it smelled like “Latin.  You know that thing you put in those yummy spice cookies?”  I’m guessing she meant molasses, nutmeg, allspice or something like that.  ☺

Mamma Chia Blackberry Bliss Chia Squeeze – $2

Love it!  Yummy yummy and I just love chia seeds.  They remind me a bit of tapioca which I love too but chia is much better for you.  The taste is kind of like a fruit juice and the texture is chia-y.

Heavenly Organics Chocolate Mint Honey Patties – $4

I love food with simple ingredients and it can’t get any simpler than this – cocoa, raw white honey, natural peppermint oil.  We all tried these and liked them.  The flavor starts with the sweet honey and then ends with a more bitter cocoa.  Even my 6 year old ate these – but she likes olives too.

Co-Pur Lavender Lime Body Balm – $15

This body balm is to be used on any place with dry skin- feet, hands, elbows, etc.  It’s made from coconut oil, organic shea butter, organic cocoa butter, lavender oil and lime oil.  I really like the lavender and lime mix but as usual shea butter is the most lingering scent.  I put lotion on my feet every night so this will be put to good use!

YumButter Superfood Sunflower Butter – $8

This is a huge travel pack with 7 ounces of product inside and if I (or someone else) ate the entire thing it would be 1080 calories.  This is definitely a share or save some for later pack.  The website says it is made from, “Organic Sunflower Seeds, Organic Chia Seeds, Organic Hemp Seeds, Organic Coconut Sugar, Organic Palm Oil, Organic Sunflower Oil, Organic Goji Berry Powder, Organic Lucuma Powder, ∞ Love.”  We like it all in this house but we love the Love.   

Verdict: Just like last month, Wellness Tribe did a great job with this box.  Everything is natural with recognizable ingredients which I love!  I think this is a nice subscription with enough item variation that it would make a great gift for someone into natural products.   The value is definitely there too with a total of $74 in items for the $39.95 (plus $5.00 shipping) monthly price.

  1. It’s a good box, but would be better if they added ‘informative health practice as described. I imagine that would mean tips on meditation, relaxation and such. Something we could do to maintain our well-being. Then it would be a perfect box.

    • Wellness Tribe does create a Wellness Tribe Guide that goes with each box. You can find the guide on their blog. I’m going to make the lavender honey lemonade in this months guide.
