All of this month’s products were packaged in a nice cotton pouch. A great quote from Henry David Thoreau was also included.

On the back of the card, information about each product is detailed. It looks like this month’s contents will support the third eye chakra!

Raw Amethyst Healing Crystal – Listed Value $6

After reading the info card, I am super into this month’s crystal! From the info card:

Amethyst is a powerful and protective stone with strong healing and cleansing powers. With its natural violet hue, it helps to relieve stress, balance mood swings, fear and anxiety. Amethyst can activate spiritual awareness, open intuition, and enhance psychic abilities. Place in your hand as you meditate. When you need guidance, cradle it and let your intuitive energy help you come to a solution.

Both pieces are beautiful and full of texture! The crystal on the left is a bit rougher than the right, which is comprised of larger stones that are smooth. Both have been great to hold during my morning meditation.

Amrutha Lavender Incense, 20g – Listed Value $6

I received 15 sticks in this package. A couple reasons why this is a miss for me: I don’t typically use incense, so I don’t have a proper incense holder to burn them. Secondly, I really dislike lavender scents. Lavender is a beautiful plant with various uses and benefits, but this scent is overly flowery and giving me a headache. If you love lavender, this is a great incense option, as it lingers even when not burning.

Your Tea Organic Tea Sampler, 3 tea bags – Value $1.75 (buy a box of 60 tea bags for $35)

BuddhiBox sent three antioxidant teas from Your Tea. This blend contains loads of herbs and plant extracts and actually tastes really good! It’s similar to early grey tea but will a nice cinnamon kick. I am not the biggest tea fan, but I will definitely drink all three packets – the claims for this product sound awesome. From Yours Tea:

Contains: Ginko Biloba, Eucommia Ulmoides Oliver, Ginseng, Lucid Ganoderma, Fleeceflower Root, Barbary Wolf Berry fruit, Coin Lacryma-jobi Linn, Poria, Chinese Red Tea, Cinnamon, Rose. These ingredients have been used to assist with: increasing immunity, assisting sleep, digestive aid, and strengthening overall system.

Quintessentials Ajna Essential Oil Blend – Listed Value $35

This month’s roll-on essential oil supports the third eye chakra. The oil’s blend consists of organic frankincense, lavender, and vetiver essential oils. The lavender blends nicely with the frankincense and the scent overall is strong, but not overpowering. I rolled the oil on my wrists during the provided meditation and will continue to look forward to experiencing the intuitive powers this supports with the 6th chakra!

The Dreaming Yogi Meditation – Listed Value $10

I noticed in Anna’s previous BuddhiBox Essential Oil Box reviews, that a card was provided with an URL to find the month’s mediation. A similar card was not included in this or last month’s box, so I think BuddhiBox is instead relying on the info card to provide information about the meditation. The image above is a screenshot from the Dreaming Yogi’s website.

This month’s guided meditation is created by Meli – The Dreaming Yogi. After subscribing to her mediation, you are taken to a Meli’s Youtube channel, which I am really excited about. Yes, I regularly go to mediation classes, but I quickly forget what I’m taught and this resource is great for in between sessions!

Verdict: This month’s theme is exactly what I was hoping for from BuddhiBox Essential Oils! For $15.95, I received $59 worth of products and resources that encourage healthy living and specifically balance the third eye chakra. I will use all of the products, except for the incense, but since it makes up a small portion of the value, it’s not a huge concern. There is a lot of value here, especially if you are looking for a holistic or more natural approach to your health, enjoy yoga and meditation, and/or are looking to learn how to apply these approaches to your daily life.

  1. Regarding the ginkgo tea, gingko can lower your blood pressure. It dilates the blood vessels in the extremities: arms, legs, and head, which reduces the pressure of blood against the vessel walls. It helps blood flow and therefore, increases the amount of oxygen into the capillaries in the brain. That is why it is recommended to people who have had strokes or memory loss. It helps your brain function better and keeps you sharp.

    If you have normal to high blood pressure, drinking gingko tea should cause a problem. But if your electrolytes are low or you have low blood pressure, you should use caution when drinking until you know how your body will respond to it because it can make you feel weak, light-headed or dizzy.

    I’m sorry if none of this makes sense. I’ve been awake all night and am dizzy from taking cortisone earlier so my mind isn’t quite thinking right either. Perhaps I should drink some gingko tea.

    By the way, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this box. I just canceled my Lip Monthly box because they keep sending me neon purple lipstick so maybe I’ll have to sign up for BuddhiBox instead.

    • Thank you for the observation! It’s really good to know that gingko lowers blood pressure – I have very low blood pressure and am very sensitive to all herbs! Sometimes people can be terribly cavalier towards herbal supplements and for those of us who are sensitive, it can be a bit alarming (and tiresome, reading up on every herb’s possible side effects!)

    • Yes, thank you for this info, Dianne!
