AromaBox January 2018 Review
This month's theme is "Workout Time!" Yep, it's that time of year! Anybody else having a hard time getting moving this year? It's just been so cold!
The information sheet from Herb Stop is really impressive. There's a lot of knowledge packed in here! Every oil they sent is matched with three different usage tips. That's really helpful! Plus on the reverse side there is a recipe for "Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS)" blend! I know that will come in handy for sure.
I also wanted to point out that their information sheet contains important safety information under each oil. It's definitely great info to have on hand.
Eucalyptus Radiata, 5ml - Buy 15ml for $9.10
I love the smell of eucalyptus! I think we all know that eucalyptus is good to help with breathing difficulties and clearing out the airways, but I didn't know it is also really good for pains and sprains, which is why it is in this month's workout box! It is also really good for skin infections, bites, cuts, and blisters. It's amazing how so many oils are good for so many different things!
Turmeric, 5ml - Buy 10ml for $8.60
To me, turmeric has a really mild scent, and I love the idea on the booklet about blending it with flowers for aromatherapy purposes. I am sure that would smell amazing! I am already a huge fan of turmeric for its pain relieving and anti-inflammatory benefits, I have just never used it in oil form. I am glad to have it!
Wintergreen, 5ml - Buy 15ml for $9.50
OK, I didn't even know wintergreen is a plant. I'm embarrassed to say that, but I always thought it was just a flavor of gum! Haha! So yes, it smells like you would expect, and it is another pain and muscle soreness reliever.
Sore No More Roll-On Essential Oil Blend - Estimated Value $16.95
This blend is not available in Herb Stop's online shop, so I am basing the value on their standard roll-on blend. This is another muscle soreness relief product, and it is made with a blend of wintergreen, orange, camphor, rosemary, and peppermint in a jojoba base.
The Verdict: I am consistently impressed with the Aroma Box by Herb Stop. I am getting such a massive education on natural health and wellness through this subscription! The oils are top quality and purity. The curation is also spot on and always perfectly suited to the month. This month, I kind of wish they had focussed on more than one aspect of the annual workout resolution. All the muscle soreness products are great, but what about energy boosters? I would be interested in learning about essential oils that can improve stamina and performance, too.
