The box comes with a booklet with tips and details on the items included:

Karuna Anti-Oxidant Face Mask Set – Value $28

I love Karuna skincare products!

This is a set of four sheet masks designed to promote skin elasticity and give you a glowing appearance. I found these masks to be super soothing and hydrating, and the subtle scent is fab, too.

Aromatherapy Lava Necklace – Value $12

This necklace is made with a stainless steel chain, and a lava stone pendant – perfect for wearing your favorite essential oil!

The necklace measures 16 inches with a 2 inch extender.

Modern Makerie Essential Oil Carrying Case – Value $20.99

I didn’t know essential oil carrying cases existed, but I totally get it now!

This case zippers closed completely, is lined with a striped fabric, and has little bands inside to snuggly hold the oils:

Perfect for travel!

And Bombay & Cedar includes essential oils in each box to add to your collection:

 

Bombay & Cedar Bergamot 100% Pure Essential Oil – Value $10

Bombay & Cedar Lavender 100% Pure Essential Oil – Value $16

I love both of these scents! Lavender is my go-to scent before bedtime, and this Bergamot is lovely, too.

And Bombay and Cedar includes cards for how to use each oil and their benefits.

Plantlife Lavender Soap – Value $6

This might be the best smelling natural soap I’ve ever found! And it’s made with coconut and olive oil, so it is moisturizing, too.

The Calming Coloring Kit – Value $10

Bah! How cute is this?

It’s a little coloring kit complete with pencils:

And 50 illustrated cards to color in:

Here are the prints:

This is the perfect size for me to store in my desk, and use for even just a five-minute stress-reducing coloring session!

MamaChia Chia Squeeze Blackberry Bliss – Value $2

This is one of my husband Eric’s favorite snacks, he grabbed this as soon as he saw it! (I’ve had them before, too.) They are sweet, but not too sweet, and a good way to get some healthy ingredients and cure a sweet craving!

Choice Organic Teas Chamomile Mint – Value $5.39

I’m a tea drinker, and these are a perfect bedtime tea for me. I love the ingredients, too: Organic Chamomile, Organic Spearmint, and Organic Bergamot Oil.

Verdict: This box has a value of about $111.39! That’s great for a $56.90 box that focuses on quality-ingredient items. This really felt like the perfect treat yo’ self box to me! And everything was so thoughtfully curated – this would make a great gift, too!

  1. Looks like a great natural/lifestyle box! Sometimes you really just have to take care of yourself and this box is a great reminder to do that. Can’t wait to see more reviews!

  2. This box look absolutely amazing. So much great stuff and at an awesome value. I’ve followed Bombay and Cedar from the start of their journey and just LOVE everything about this brand.

  3. The curation of this box is wonderful. Its giving me a sense of calm just reading about it. I did not know there are necklaces made to wear aroma fragrances. The carrying bag is a great idea as well. Thanks for the review Liz!

  4. This is my new favorite sub! After getting the first 2 months I subscribed for 6 more. The variety is great with all things that make you feel good and help you relax. I’m more about curation than value, but impressively, Bombay and Cedar has both!

  5. This Box Looks AWESOME!!! I didn’t know much about this until your review, so Thank-You for doing it. I will have to look into this. I absolutely Love essential oils, so this would be perfect for me. Great Review.
