In addition to products, BuddhiBox includes a few cards. The first has a great quote from Piero Ferruci on the front.
And on the back lists the box contents, along with values and details of each item. There’s also a key that denotes which items are cruelty-free, organic, and vegan!
Each month, BuddhiBox also provides a yoga practice. This month, Trikonasana, or the Triangle pose, is featured. This pose helps to align mind, body, spirit with the goal of being balancing and grounded. I am an on-again-off-again yoga practicer, but love that Buddhibox helps in my motivation to get back at it!
There is also a Green Superfood Energy Bars recipe card included from Milk & Honey Nutrition.
Neelu Kaur – Yogini Bliss Essential Oil, 0.3 fl. oz. – Value $25
Neelu Kaur provides an imaginative description for this Yogini Bliss essential oil. It is suited for everyone, though, for intended blissful peace. It’s a combination of jojoba, rose, natural vanilla, ylang ylang, mandarin, Amyris, geranium, cinnamon, and cardamon. The blend is beautiful, with a vanilla and minty, but spicy scent. It’s not overly flowery which I prefer. It is suggested to roll on your wrists, but I found it a bit greasy on my skin. I have placed this at my desk to stop and smell throughout the work day!
The Argan Project Argan Oil, 1 fl. oz. – Value $14
Yes, argan oil! I have read so much about the benefits of this oil, but never tried it. I will happily accept this product by The Argan Project, who works with female cooperatives and Morrocan farms to sell this handmade product. They offer culinary and cosmetic argan oils, the latter of which was sent in this BuddhiBox.
I have acne prone combination skin that gets very dry in the winter, so this vitamin E-enriched and fatty acids oil will be perfect, as long as it doesn’t cause breakouts. I tested it first on my skin. So far, so good, and I can already tell a little is going to go a long way. I am definitely going to incorporate this into my skincare routine – especially if I can benefit from the radiance and glow argan oil can provide!
Viter Energy Mints, sample pack – Value $0.75 (buy a tin of 20 for $4.99 on Jet.com)
I received a sample of three wintergreen-flavored mints, and wowza, they are strong! I typically prefer spearmint flavors, but the wintergreen tastes good and freshens. However, there’s something that bothers me about them being caffeinated. They definitely boosted my energy without becoming jittery, but I personally prefer to stay away from caffeinated ingredients and really caffeine in general. I can absolutely see why these would be popular, though!
Your Tea Organic Deluxe Tea Sampler – Value $35
I have tried Your Tea before and was so curious about this box when I opened BuddhiBox. What could a tea sampler entail? A few teas and/or accessories, maybe?
Nope. 60 Anti-C tea bags! I couldn’t even believe my eyes! Your Tea also included a craft paper booklet that entails the various teas they offer and more about their company’s mission.
So full disclosure: I’m not really a tea drinker, but I am absolutely an advocate for products and systems that naturally improve your health and well-being. So, needless to say, I’m all about this tea. The goal of Anti-C is to help cleanse your kidneys and liver in order to rid your body of toxins. You are supposed to steep the tea for 4-5 minutes and drink it 30 minutes before or after a meal (up to three times a day).
I followed those instructions and overall found the tea to taste like a traditional earl gray or black tea. It tastes good and I didn’t feel the need to sweeten it. I haven’t noticed any side effects yet, but fully intend to commit to drinking the 60 packets.
And now, a mystery pouch! I like the pattern of the cotton weave.
BuddhiBox Faux Suede Wrap Bracelet – Listed Value $22
The faux suede cording is long enough that it can be wrapped a few times around my wrist. In the center is a natural bead and lava stones. I love BuddhiBox’s suggestion to roll the Yogini Bliss essential oil over the lava stone since it’s porous. Instant aromatherapy!
BuddhiBox Mat Carrying Strap – Value $15
Wow, this is the second item in this month’s box that I’ve always wanted but never purchased. I’m so happy to receive this blue yoga mat strap! It fits nicely around my current mat and comfortable to wear. So now, I have no excuses to skip my weekly yoga class 🙂
Verdict: I’ve reviewed and enjoyed the BuddhiBox Essential Oils (BBEO) box for the last couple months, and equally enjoyed my first BuddhiBox Yoga box! I like that it’s a culmination of their Jewelry and Essential Oils subscription, but also provides practical yoga and lifestyle items too. I miss the guided mediation that’s included in the BBEO box, but the argan oil more than makes up for it! This box’s total value is $111.75, which is almost triple the total box cost (accounting for shipping too). That is incredible and I feel the value is there in the products and information sent.
