This month, Go Native! is featuring Hoola, a family run apiary (collection of beehives) in Hawi, Hawaii.

You’ll find details on the honey, as well as the other items on the reverse side of the card.

Meli Wraps Beeswax Wrap – Value $8

I’ve never seen anything like this wrap, and I’m intrigued! Meli Wraps are made by hand out of organic cotton with beeswax, tree resin, and plant oils. The idea is to use these wraps (which come in three sizes) instead of plastic bags or cling wrap for storing or covering a myriad of food items. They are naturally anti-bacterial and can be washed and reused for a year! All you have to do is warm up the wrap with the heat of your hands to soften and you’ll be able to form a pouch in which it sticks to itself, or use it as you would like foil or cling wrap to cover a dish. What a cool idea! I really like the design they sent me (Ahupua’a) in the smallest 7×7 inch size. I like this super green and stylish way to cut down on waste!

The Indigenous Soap Company Campout Chamomile Soap – Value $8.50? (Didn’t see this in their shop, but all other soaps are priced the same)

Mmm- this soap smells divine and I love that it looks like a honeycomb! I’ve gotten soap from this company in a past GO Native! box and really loved that one too! All of their soaps are handmade and organic. This particular one is made with honey, chamomile, turmeric, and palmarosa with orange oil. So many lovely ingredients and it looks beautiful too.

Hoola Raw Kiawe Honey ($4?) and Wood Honey Dipper ($0.50?) Set – Total Value $4.50?

I’m so happy to receive some honey this time around because I’ve run out at home and keep forgetting to buy more. Now that it’s getting colder, I’ve been drinking more tea which I like to add a bit of honey too. It’s not marked, but I think this jar is about 2 oz, so I pro-rated the cost based on the prices on their site. It’s also great to receive this cute little 3″ wooden honey dipper to dole out the sweet golden honey onto things like oatmeal. This honey is produced by local bees on Hawaii’s Big Island where the bees collect nectar from the yellow flowers of the Kiawe Tree. This is so much more pure tasting and rich than the honey I buy at a grocery store chain in a bear!

Puulaau Remedies Hanu Cold and Cough Tincture, 0.5 oz – Value $15

I always look forward to receiving natural remedies from my Go Native! box. This time I got a timely throat and lungs tincture for the upcoming cold season. This elixir made with Olena, lemongrass, basil, ginger, organic menthol, and cinnamon (just to name a few) can be put directly in your mouth under your tongue, or be added to hot water to receive the benefits of its natural soothing properties. The dropper makes it easy to do so, and as soon as it hit my mouth, I could feel the menthol clearing me up! Thankfully my throat isn’t sore right now, but rest assured this will be the first thing I reach for when the sickness tries to take me!

Verdict: Although the value didn’t seem to exceed the cost this month, I really love each item I got in this month’s Go Native! box. There was a great variety and they kept it simple with five items (two being part of a set). I can’t wait to use everything I received and I’m stoked to be slowly building a natural remedy medicine cabinet.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No. Their cutoff date is the 15th to receive the following month, so if you order today, your first box won’t arrive until December.

Value Breakdown: At $38 for this box, each item (counting the honey + dipper as a set) had a value of about $9.50.

  1. FYI, similar bee’s-wax wraps are offered by Mighty Nest, and they’ve included some in their Mighty Fix sub box. Their pattern isn’t as exquisite, though!

  2. This sub has had some really different/interesting stuff! It’s a little too pricey for me to do monthly, but I just ordered one as a Christmas present for my cousin!

    • Oooh- great gift!!

  3. This box looks great, except for the soap that’s full of HOLES!!! I have Trypophobia and that soap is making me sick to my stomach.. There should have been some kind of warning or something…lol Just kidding. No warning needed, but the hole phobia is real. Does anyone else have a problem with all those holes, or is it just me?

    • I think the holes would help with exfoliation??

    • Trypophobia is actually pretty common!

      Maybe if you got a soap like this, you could have a buddy use a chef’s knife to slice off the textured layer.

      • I’m so happy I’m not alone! I thought I was gonna be the odd ball out on this one. It’s making my skin crawl just thinking about that soap..lol..

    • I’ve never heard of Trypophobia, but after googling it, my empathetic nature is truly horrified for you!

      Great review, Marion.

    • I too suffer from Trypophobia and had to scroll past the soap pic very quickly. The struggle is real! You’re definitely not alone.

    • Omg, I think I have a mild form of this! Never knew it was a thing… I just assumed that everybody was grossed out by the same things I am.

    • Oh no! I’m familiar, but I guess it doesn’t affect me since that didn’t enter my mind with the soap. It just reminds me of a honeycomb. I DEFINITELY would never google image search that though!! I’ve made that mistake before. :X
