I like that the info card for the box features a quote that echoes the ocean-inspired tone for the items inside.
In lieu of the usual yoga pose card that comes in the box, this month’s box features information about the chakras.
Orange Calcite Healing Stone – Listed Value $10.00
Last month, I received blue calcite in this box, and this month, it’s orange calcite! According to the info card, this stone is useful in removing creative blocks and enhancing life force. It’s a sizable stone that’s about 2 inches wide and just slightly longer. It’s got a sharp edge to it, so I have to be a bit careful in how I hold it and play with it in my hands, but I love how smooth and glossy it looks and feels.
From Molly with Love Root Chakra Spray – Value $17.99
I really love the From Molly with Love products I’ve received! This spray is no different. It has a woodsy, cinnamon-ish fragrance to it that’s meant to inspire grounding and a feeling of security. My favorite part is its long list of natural ingredients and essential oils, including quartz-infused water, witch hazel, vetiver, patchouli, and other magical materials.
It’s a smudge in a candle! I’ve received candles from this company before in other subscription boxes, and I really enjoy them. This candle smells like a wildflower smudge and even features some dried wildflower petals that have been sprinkled over the top of the candle. The aroma is gorgeous—warm, crisp, and fresh like walking through a sunny, flower-filled meadow in the middle of a pine forest.
I do think they may have overpriced the candle on the info card, being that one twice the size of the one in the box is just $2.00 more than what’s listed for this one.
Blend Bee Sahasrara Synergy Crown Chakra Tea, 7-10 cups worth – Listed Value $8.00
This appears to be a custom blend of tea created by BuddhiBox via Blend Bee. This mix includes lavender, raspberry leaf, lemongrass, and other natural ingredients that inspire relaxation, openness, and a meditative state. It’s a very lavender-ish tea that’s sort of like a more floral, brighter Earl Gray. You’ll need a tea infuser basket to make this loose-leaf blend, of course, and drinking it in a peaceful setting where you can really focus on your intention of relaxation will make all the difference.
Palo Santo Stick – Listed Value $4.00
I really like Palo Santo, though I know the fragrance is kind of strange (it has a bit of a rubbery undertone to it). This stick is intended to work like a smudge—you light the end, burn it for a few seconds, then blow it out, allowing the smoke to dissolve into the air. It’s a really simple item—it’s just a stick of wood after all—but I love having some of this refreshing material handy for whenever my home needs a pick me up.
Exclusive Chakra Wrist Mala Bracelet – Listed Value $25.00
This bracelet is so pretty! The colored beads are meant to represent different chakras and help remind you of them on the go or during your meditation practice. I love the hints of gold and the comfortable, cool feeling of the round beads on my wrist. The cynic in me is a little suspicious that this item is the highest valued product in the box at $25.00—since it’s an exclusive, I don’t have any real information into the quality of the beads or anything that would help justify that high cost. Just by guessing, though, I do feel like these beads are at the very least real glass, if not other types of stones.
Alighten Natural Skincare Sample, 0.034 fl oz – Value $2.96
I’ve been really exploring the world of oils in my skincare routine, so I was excited to see this little vial in the box. The oil is lightweight and refreshing to massage into my skin, and it quickly soaks in, providing soothing moisture. The fragrance is likewise really lovely—it’s floral, like rose, but has a bit of sweet citrus to it, too. A full 1 oz bottle of this oil is super expensive, so I appreciate getting the chance to try this sample. It is kind of a bummer that with the recommended twice-daily usage, this vial won’t last much longer than a few days. That makes it tougher to see if it has any longer term benefits beyond mere moisturization.
Verdict: This BuddhiBox Yoga box had a lot of really lovely items inside. I liked the fact that they appealed to so many different senses—the smell of the smudge candle, spray, and Palo Santo, the aroma and taste of the tea, and even the soothing, textures of the oil and the smooth stone. If I was left wanting anything, it might’ve been more direct correlations between the items in the box and the chakras they best served. The info card mentioned specifically what the tea and spray helped enhance, but I would’ve loved to know how best to employ the other items in the service of chakras. That’s a very picky note, though—I was super happy with the almost $77.00 of value I got in this $35.00 box!
