This is the information card that was included, listing the contents of the package. July’s theme is “Freedom.” Fitting!

zen-jen-jul-snacks

Yogi Teas – Value about $0.50 each

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.

Lara Bar (Apple Pie) – Value about $1.50

I am a fan of Lara bars because they contain only whole, natural ingredients with no added sugars. They are pretty high in carbs due to the dried fruit (for those who care), which is probably why they’re so delicious!

zen-jen-jul-repellant

Essential Oil Insect Repellent – Value ?

This essential oil insect repellant smells like citronella, as you would expect. It’s a custom item, so I don’t have a good value for it, I’m afraid. I am all about using essential oils as bug repellants, but on a recent review a reader commented that they may be very harmful or fatal to cats, so please be careful with your oils!

zen-jen-jul-soap

“By The Lake” Natural Soap Bar – Value ?

This little chunk of soap made the entire box smell great even before I opened it! The patchouli is the overarching scent, but it’s well balanced by the lemongrass. This is another custom item.

Throwing Stones – Value ?

These little stones are cute. The idea is to focus on something that is holding you back while holding the “Let Go” stone, and then throw it away. The other stone represents your hopes and dreams for the future, and that stone is meant to hold on to and draw strength.

Verdict: This was another cute box from ZenBox by Jen! I think most everything fit the theme pretty well, and the contents could definitely add to one’s zen experience. I think the exercise with the stones could be particularly meaningful for some. That being said, I think there are other new age type boxes that provide a better value for the cost. 

What do you think of ZenBox by Jen?

  1. i also don’t see the value. Would love to see something better curated , and with a higher value. Examples maybe some wirewrapped crystal pendants , dream pillows, sachets made with lavender

  2. Jen here, owner of ZenBox by Jen! Thank you for any and all feedback, it is truly appreciated. Do you have any suggestions as to what you might like to see in a box of this nature? Improving my business is so important to me! Thanks so much! – Jen

  3. The value of this is well below the $25 cost. Thanks so much for reviewing, but not interested.

    • So sorry to read this! This is Jen here, do you have any helpful suggestions or specific items you’d like to see in a box like this? I appreciate all feedback!

  4. Sorry, Anna, but this looks like a box of junk to me. Even at $10 or $15 I would not buy. There is no real curation/unique sourcing and everything looks super cheap 🙁

  5. Jen really likes her zig zag scissors.

    The sunset stone is so pretty, I don’t think I’d be able to throws it in a body of water!!
