This is the information card that was included, listing the contents of the package. June’s theme is “Spring Cleanse.”
This is a really nice affirmation. I like receiving affirmations and meditations in this type of box. I rarely adopt them for regular use in my practice, but they really help me form my own.
Ah, the clapping exercise. I’ve never tried this, and I probably never will, to be honest. This goes a little outside my comfort zone in terms of energy manipulation. I do believe that energy needs to be “shaken up” a bit in areas of the home that are low-energy, but usually cleaning is sufficient. Also, we have no lack of energy in my house, and with two kids, two dogs, a cat and a husband, I need to spend every spare minute I have just keeping it clean. This is a nice inclusion for people that have clean, low energy homes, though.
This lovely coloring page was also included. It’s pretty unique; I like the silhouetted form in front of the partial mandala. I don’t have a lot of patience for coloring, though! Is that weird? It’s the new zen phenomenon, and I kind of don’t get it. Anyone else?
I have tried all three of these Yogi teas before, and I love Yogi teas in general. Yogi teas tend to have a robust flavor. They are worth about 50 cents per bag, and I mention this because I have not been able to assign a value to any of the items in this box except these teas.
On the left in this picture is a baggie of Epsom salts, and on the right is a tiny vial of eucalyptus essential oil blend. These are good for one bath, used together, or three foot soaks. I like the small of eucayptus, and I love Epsom salts. Epsom salt is full of magnesium, a mineral many of us are lacking in our diets, and which helps relax muscles. The great news is that it is absorbable through the skin, which is why Epsom salt baths are so relaxing. This was an awesome inclusion in this box for me.
This is a really nice lavender-oatmeal soap. The scent is soothing, and the oatmeal is really good for my skin. It’s a really tiny chunk, though!
Verdict: I think this was a very well curated box from ZenBox by Jen. A lot of thought was put into it, and I think subscribers could form a pretty meaningful experience from the items included. There were no values listed for any of the items, and in fact I think most of these items were homemade, but that’s ok because the value of this box is non-tangential. That being said, I think there are other new age type boxes that provide a better value for the cost.
