Vapor Rub (2 oz.) – $12.00
This natural alternative to Vicks Vapor Rub uses beeswax, olive oil and essential oils. It can be rubbed on the chest, temples, throat, under the nose, or my personal favorite for the kids during the winter – their feet! I am so thrilled to get this in a natural beauty box. We use this type of natural vapor rub a lot with our young children when they are congested or have coughs.
Respiratory Aromatherapy Inhaler – $6.25
This natural inhaler made with essential oils is just placed under the nose and breathed in. There is no “product” to rub on or squeeze out. It claims to help with allergies, asthma, bronchitis, sore throats and other breathing difficulties. We don’t suffer from any of these issues this time of year but I do get bad ragweed allergies in the fall so I will be trying it out then and hope it offers some relief.
Detox Clay Mask (2 oz.) – $20.00
I don’t see this mask sold as a stand-alone on the Elegant Rose Etsy shop but she does offer a sample pack of 4 different clay masks (0.5 oz. each) and this detox mask is included in that pack. This mask is a dry powder that you mix with water to make a paste. I applied it to my face and kept it on for about 25 minutes. I can’t say I saw a visible difference in the appearance of my skin, but maybe it takes more than one application.
Herbal Balm (0.5 oz.) – Value $3.60
This herbal healing balm can be rubbed topically on minor skin irritations such as bug bites, sunburn, scrapes and bruises. Included in the ingredients list are lavender, comfrey and plantain leaf. It rubs on smoothly and smells herbal and clean. This is great for camping trips or just keeping in your bag for anytime you have a minor skin ailment.
Rosemary Nettle Solid Shampoo Bar (5 oz.) – $6.00
This shampoo bar is great for all hair types and doesn’t contain the synthetic ingredients that most shampoos use to create lather but also strip your hair of natural oils. It takes getting used to since it doesn’t create the kind of lather that I’m used to, but I liked the aroma and it didn’t leave my hair feeling greasy which I was afraid it might.
Salt Bar (5 oz.) – $10.00?
The Waikiki Salt Bar contains salt which gives this soap a little bit of a rougher texture than regular soap, but I wouldn’t call it exfoliating. It lathered up well but I didn’t care for the scent. Elegant Rose sells a few kinds of salt bars, but I don’t see this particular one for sale.
Activated Charcoal Herbal Detox Soak – $15.00
Ok so this didn’t quite work for me. I love to take baths and I was very excited to try this Epsom salt and charcoal bath soak. Unfortunately the soak also contains dried herbs. When I shook two teaspoons of soak into the warm water as the directions suggested the salt dissolved nicely but the herbs all float around on the top of the water and when I climbed out of the tub it looked like I rolled around in parsley flakes. I then had to take a quick shower to get everything off! The soak smells strongly of peppermint.
Jarred Deodorant – $5.00
The jarred deodorant came in a sweet lavender scent. I’m not sure if I got a bad batch but it was very watery and not like any other natural deodorant I’ve tried before (and I’ve tried a lot!). The jarred deodorants pictured on the Faith’s Naturals website don’t look anything like what I received. Unfortunately this was not a win for me. I would love to find an aluminum free deodorant that doesn’t leave oil stains on my clothing. If you have any suggestions please let me hear them!
Verdict: This month’s Heaven’s Honey box wasn’t as big of a hit as some of the previous months’ but I really liked the Vapor Rub and Herbal Balm. What I like most about this box is the value, variety of products and knowing that each month I’ll discover a couple new small batch brands. This month’s value came to about $77 which I’m happy with.
