Fire Opal Stone – Value $10?
This raw fire opal stone has a beautiful yellow tone to it. Fire opal is meant to boost self-confidence and is said to be a good stone for shy, unsure folks to carry with intention. This stone isn’t as iridescent as other opals I’ve seen, but perhaps that’s due to its raw, unpolished nature. Regardless, it’s an eye-catching rock with lots of smooth surfaces over which to run your fingers! For me, the “hand feel” of crystals is just as much an important part of the experience as the meaning. Sometimes, just having a unique piece of nature to hold and observe and explore is a meditation in its own right.
I gathered from the info card that the two bracelets in this month’s box are from Indo-Love. On the back of this card is a coupon for 15% off your next order from Indo-Love! The shop offers mala beads and other jewelry with a mindful spin.
White Howlite Lava Rock Mala – Retail Value $24?
Bali Seed Bead Bracelet — Retail Value $18?
I was unable to find these bracelets on Indo-Love’s website, so I linked to similar products. The wrist mala on the left is made of lava rock and white Howlite beads. It is suggested to dab a little essential oil on the lava rocks, encouraging the rocks to take on the earth’s energy and ground you. The bracelet on the right was hand-strung with small beads and seeds. Its golden, tasseled strands allow it to be adjusted on your wrist, and the petite Buddhist Temple Coin charm is a lovely zen touch.
When it comes to bracelets, I prefer lightweight pieces over bulky, jingly styles. So, this duo is exactly my jam. I love the way they look when worn together, and I think they’d be pretty stacked with even more beaded bracelets, too.
Solar Plexus 108 Mala — Retail Value $58?
This BuddhiBox exclusive mala necklace is meant to be used in meditation while reciting affirmations or mantras the traditional 108 times—though, it can also be worn as jewelry. While mostly made of wooden beads, this accessory features a few citrine beads and a yellow jade pendant. These three materials represent grounding, confidence, and empowerment. What a combo!
I’ve never seen a mala that has a large focus bead instead of a tassel, but it’s a beautiful departure from the classic. To me, the colors of the wood and lighter beads together exude optimism and lightness, which I’m all about.
Here are both bracelets and the mala necklace worn together. They make delightfully intentional jewelry and I like that they introduced pleasing, earthy colors into my simple look.
Palo Santo – Retail Value $5?
Ah, Palo Santo—a classic! I burn incense in my home just about every day, and I love the way that Nag Champa, Patchouli, and Palo Santo blend. The earthy scent of Palo Santo is immediately calming to me, and I have taken to placing a stick in almost every room of my house so it’s readily available if ever I want to fill the room with its cleansing energies and grounding aroma. This stick will immediately be added to the mix!
Verdict: With winter coming full steam ahead, I was so appreciative to receive a box of sunshine as this month’s BuddhiBox Jewelry box! The mala necklace and bracelets are just my style, the stone is a cheerful piece unlike any I currently own, and Palo Santo is always a welcome addition. There were no prices listed on this month’s info card, but using educated guesses to place values, I added the contents up to about $115. For a $49.95 box, that’s a fantastic deal! I look forward to incorporating these thoughtful items into my day-to-day.
