The theme this month is “Finding Peace in Nature”. I just went for my first hike of the season this weekend, and all I want to do is be outside and enjoy the trees and fresh air around me.
Speaking of trees, they’re featured on both of the jewelry pieces in the box. The back of the info card lists each item in the box, plus a bit about what makes it significant. There’s also a yoga sequence for the month, of course featuring tree pose!

Each of the jewelry items comes packaged in its own organza pouch.
Tree of Life Turquoise Necklace – Listed Value $78.00
According to the info card, turquoise is a powerful stone known to provide clarity, reduce mental stress, and eliminate ailments caused by pollution. While those qualities sound awesome to me, I’ll admit that turquoise has never been a stone that I’m really drawn to. So from a very superficial style standpoint, this necklace wasn’t my favorite.
The cord has a suede finish, though I can’t tell whether it’s real or not (I’m leaning towards no…). The wire pendant design is cool from a distance, but up close, it looks a little more DIY than I’d like. The ends of the wire poke out a bit and caught on the shirt I was wearing. Again, I love the spirit of the piece and really wanted to love it, but it wasn’t quite me. Plus, the quality made me question the $78.00 listed price point.
The second jewelry item also comes inside its own ivory bag. I might hang on to these bags and use them to store jewelry or even quarters for laundry.
Tree of Life Bracelet – Listed Value $32.00
With its crisper, simpler design, this bracelet is more my style than the necklace. The cord (again, I think it’s faux leather) is super soft and suede-like, and the half-dollar-sized tree accent sits comfortably on top of my wrist.
The metal is a little lighter than I’d expect, and the gold finish is already wearing a bit on the sides of the charm. So again, I’m not sold on the idea that the bracelet is really worth $32.00. I do like how comfortable it is, though—it’s about 8.5 inches long altogether, and you have about 2 inches of slack to play around with.
I wasn’t a huge fan of the chocolate bar in last month’s box, but this one was super interesting! As the label says, this bar is vegan, gluten-free, organic, non-GMO, and has no refined sugar (basically as guilt-free as a chocolate bar can get).
The bar itself is about a half-inch thick (yum!). For being 90% cacao, the chocolate has a really smooth, mild flavor. There’s a thin layer of “caramel” in the center of the bar, too—it’s made from lucuma, a Peruvian superfood fruit. The filling isn’t fruity in the least, but instead, has the consistency and light, sugary flavor of crystallized honey.
Verdict: This box is only $24.95 and has free shipping for US customers (yay!), and I feel like that’s a pretty fair price for the jewelry and the snack. The values they list for the items, however, seem super high for what the pieces are—I calculated a value of about $117.00 based on what was listed! I wasn’t a huge fan of the tree necklace, but I do like the other two items in the box and the concept of the box overall. There’s a spoiler for what’s coming next month on the back of the retreat card, and it looks pretty cool, so I’m sticking with this subscription!
