BuddhiBox December 2017 Box Review
Here’s the info card that came inside this month’s box. At the top, it features an Instagram contest—if you snap a pic of your BuddhiBox and post it with the #buddhiboxyogis hashtag, you could win a $50 gift certificate to the BuddhiBox store.
There’s also usually a card featuring a yoga pose. This month, it’s Scorpion Pose, which I’ve never tried. It looks so advanced! The info on How to Access this pose is really helpful—it disclaims that yogis shouldn’t try it until they’re accomplished at a headstand, which I am not. This will be a good 2018 goal for me!
This box also sometimes includes a mantra or mindful quote. This one from Indian guru Osho is a fun, playful one!
The last of the included cards and such include 10% off discount codes for both mytat.com, where the canvas makeup bag holding all this month’s goodies comes from, and the BuddhiBox store. Finally, a 1 month free code to lunaryoga.tv. These are some awesome deals!
My TaT Peaceful Warrior Zipper Makeup Bag – Retail Value $24.00, Listed Value $20.00
BuddhiBox‘s treats always come tucked in a really nice canvas pouch, which I’ve used for gifting, for packing jewelry in while I travel, for keeping a mini, homemade first-aid kit in while camping…they’re super useful. This month’s is a step above the typical drawstring pouch, though, in that it zips! I also love the idea of a “peaceful warrior” and will be proud to rep this bag wherever I go. It’s meant to be a makeup bag, and it’s a good size for that, but I could totally see myself using it as a clutch now and then!
Gypsy Soul Organics Family Tree Potion, 2 oz. – Retail Value $19.99, Listed Value 19.00
This spray calls itself a perfume/cologne on the bottle, but its scent is rather light, so I think of it more as a room or pillow spray. The link I provided above is for the same spray in a different bottle, with a different label. The bottle linked is glass, while the one I received is plastic. This potion mixes essential oils like clove, lavender, cinnamon bark, cassia root, pine, and cardamom, so it’s very winter-y! If I had received it in time, it might have been nice to use around Christmastime, but I don’t think it’s so specific that it isn’t still nice for the rest of the season. By the way, this product is vegan, cruelty-free, and handmade in Austin, TX. Yay!
Bear’s Beauty Hemp Vegan Lip Tint, Blush Mint – Retail Value $4.20, Listed Value $8.00
I always love receiving all-natural lip balms in boxes because I, like everyone else, I’m sure, have the hardest time keeping track of ’em! I don’t often wear lipstick in general, but especially in the colder months when my lips are so dry—they just end up looking cracked and peely and kind of gross with lipstick on—so I’m loving this tinted balm! As you can see, I have very fair skin, and the blush tint here only contributes the faintest pigment. It’s a little more noticeable on my lips, and it’s really lovely. The addition of mint in this tube makes for a wonderful tingly sensation, too! This lip balm is vegan and cruelty-free.
BuddhiBox Geode Necklace – Listed Value $40.00
I believe this is the first time I’ve received a non-beaded piece of jewelry in my BuddhiBox! Don’t get me wrong, I love me some mala beads and layering bracelets, but this slightly fancier offering is a beautiful treat for the holiday season. This piece features a sparkly druzy geode that’s dipped in 14K gold, and the pendant is strung along a dotted chain. I love that the agate geode is in this soft ivory hue; it’s very versatile and easy to dress up or down.
BuddhiBox Abundance Stone Set – Listed Value $18.00
The trio of small, vibrant stones included in this BuddhiBox-exclusive set are Amazonite, Aquamarine, and Amethyst. The three work together to work toward fearlessness and protection against negative energy, thus equipping you with a sense of abundance as you embark on a new journey or project, or simply go about your day. Also, visually, the cool tones simply look beautiful together. I plan to keep them on my dresser where I can take a moment to appreciate them every day and not worry about losing one! This set was also included in the BuddhiBox Essential Oils Box for December.
House of Good Juju Winter Solstice Soy Candle — Listed Value $6 (Buy a tin candle for $20)
This tealight candle is infused with allspice and berries and adorned with a cedar sprig, red jasper, and clear quartz crystals. I absolutely love this concept—it’s both unique and smells wonderfully festive! I was bummed to find that my candle arrived with the 2 stones having popped out, but they were easy to stick back in. I try to set aside time to honor each solstice, though sometimes figuring out exactly what to do can be a challenge. I’m receiving this candle after the Winter Solstice, though I did receive one in my BuddhiBox Essential Oils box in time, which I did light and set intentions over. I encourage you to poke around House of Good Juju‘s website—not only do they offer a ton of info about this candle and the care with which it was made, but they also sell all sorts of beautiful, infused and crystal-topped options. They would make great gifts.
The Verdict: Though I’m bummed that I wasn’t able to explore my December BuddhiBox until after the holidays, I’m still really pleased with the items inside! I’m really impressed with the BuddhiBox-exclusive druzy necklace and excited about the Peaceful Warrior pouch. I also thought the tinted lip balm was a really thoughtful touch that will be useful to me this winter. I’m looking forward to see what arrives in the January box that might be useful toward fresh intentions and new beginnings in 2018.
