Protect Spray from Buddhibox Essential Oils

Ingredients for Spray in Buddhibox Essential Oils

Essential Oil Spray in Buddhibox Essential Oils

Oiliving Life Protect Immune Supporter Spray, 1 oz. – Listed Value $12.00, for 2 oz. bottle (Buy a 4 oz. bottle for $18.00)

In the five months that I’ve reviewed the BuddhiBox Essential Oils box, this is the first month that the featured essential oil has been anything other than a roll-on bottle. I’ve come to collect a lot of wonderful roll-on oils, but I like that they’re switching it up this month. This is my third Oiliving Life spray that I’ve been lucky enough to own, and while the traditional 4 oz. bottles are great to keep on my dresser for a pillow spray or in my bathroom, the 1 oz. travel size totally makes sense for an immune booster. This spray has a very distinct cinnamon and clove scent, but it’s still light and not too overwhelming when sprayed in the air.

Carnelian Stone in Buddhibox Essential Oils

Carnelian Rock in Buddhibox Essential Oils

Carnelian Stone – Listed Value $8

I was so intrigued by this stone when I spotted it in my box! Aside from its fiery orange glow when held up in the light, it has such a natural look to it, like it could be a stone I might find on a hike. It’s also one of the largest stones I’ve received in a BuddhiBox. According to the included info card, carnelian is known as a stone of motivation and endurance, leadership and courage. As we live out the homestretch of January, a month during which many folks strive to incorporate new positive habits or cleanse from harmful tendencies, the little energy boost from this stone is very welcome!

Reiki Candle from Buddhibox Essential Oils

Reiki Candle for Buddhibox Essential Oils

Reiki Info from Buddhibox Essential Oils

Reiki Herbal Votive Candle – Positive Energy — Listed Value $6 (Buy a glass votive holder for $5.75)

Speaking of intriguing, the vibrant color of this votive candle is so insanely eye-catching! During the summer, I fill my fireplace with eclectic candles that have all sorts of meanings to me, and on quiet evenings spent either with close friends or just myself and my thoughts, I light the candles and welcome their calming energy into my home. I’m going to save this beautiful candle for those evenings. Its scent is a blend of sandalwood, dragon’s blood (never heard of this!), frankincense, and saffron essential oils, and the included info slip offers directions for how to charge your candle with positive energy. I love this! I’m going to keep these directions around so I can charge all the candles in my fireplace!

Meli the Dreaming Yogi Meditation Buddhibox Essential Oils

The Dreaming Yogi Meditation – Listed Value $10

This month’s meditation video is a little over 8 minutes long, which I found to be the perfect length to start a Sunday morning with intention, without feeling like I’m neglecting my to-dos. This is the second month that the host, Meli of The Dreaming Yogi, has appeared on camera rather than using voice-over. Like I said last month, I much prefer this approach, as it brings her words to life and gives me something to focus on if I feel I’d rather keep my eyes open during the meditation. This month’s meditation started with some small, seated stretches and relaxations, which really helped me ‘arrive’ and be present. It’s a good one to do before bed, which she mentions in the video.

Sage Smudge Stick in Buddhibox Essential Oils

White Sage Smudge Stick — Listed Value $6

Ah, a good classic sage smudge stick! While my personal spiritual practice doesn’t involve smudging, I have often burned sage on the first day of living in a new place, on occasions such as solstices, and anytime I feel I need an energy cleanse. I do believe that the intention you put behind your actions is nearly just as important as the action itself, and smudging is a ritual that I believe has a history of reverence and goodness behind it. So, I’m always happy to find sage in a BuddhiBox!

Verdict: What a great start to a new year of BuddhiBox Essential Oils. There is a distinct feeling of newness to this box, from the different kind of essential oil to the unique type of stone, and the inspiring vibe of the candle and sage. This box costs $15.95 box (US shipping included), and its contents add up to $42, which was calculating using some estimated values.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, you will receive the February box. Order by the 8th of the month to receive that month’s box.

COUPON: Use code buddhiaddiction to save 10% off all subscriptions!

Value Breakdown: At $15.95 for this box, you’re paying approximately $3.19 for each of the 5 included items.

  1. Awesomeness pictures! I love talking essential oils, how they have changed my life and how they can help change yours.

    • I think it’s cool that aromatherapy can be used to relieve stress at work. I love how simple this treatment is. What is your favorite oil, Bella?

  2. That stay looks and sounds lovely

    • Spray*

      • Oh, it truly is! If you end up following the link above to buy a bottle for yourself, be sure to come back and let me know what you think. 🙂

  3. Quick question – where did you get those cool coaster stones under the candle?
    I keep seeing them in reviews (and then think it’s from the box for a moment) and am really curious where they’re from!

    • Hey, Marina! You must be following my reviews—I think I’m the only reviewer who uses them! They’re from Ten Thousand Villages. Here’s a link: 🙂

      • Haha, oh my I was thinking these reminded me of those! (I had been looking at them the other week!)
        You have excellent taste(and yes, I must be a follower of your reviews too)!
        How do they fare/hold up? I’m thinking if getting some new coasters as I am actually mostly bedridden atm – its amazing how much u notice coasters when stuck in bed! (2 sprained ankles + knee lol)

      • Oh my goodness, I’m sorry to hear you’re all banged up! Daydreaming of new coasters isn’t a bad way to pass the time. 🙂 I received this set as a gift about 5 years ago and they’ve held up beautifully. To be honest, I’ve found them to be a little small in diameter, so you have to set your glass on them rather intentionally. But, it’s a good lesson in trying to do all things with intention, and plus, they’re just so pretty on my tabletop that it’s worth it!
