BuddhiBox Oils April 2018

BuddhiBox has had a subscription box for yoga and meditation for years, but they recently launched BuddhiBox Essential Oils, a monthly aromatherapy/meditation subscription. Every month, subscribers receive various essential oils and crystals that support a specific guided meditation, which is also included.

BuddhiBox Oils April 2018 Packing List

Each month’s BuddhiBox includes a card with an inspiring mantra on the front and info about the contents of the box on the back. This month, it’s sort of a proverb-y quote about the moon to go with this month’s theme.

Oiliving Life Smudge Spray, 1 oz. – Listed Value $12.00, for 1 oz. bottle (Buy a 4 oz. bottle for $18.99)

For as long as I’ve been subscribed to this box, which is about 8 months, BBEO has included its featured essential oil in one of two forms: a roll-on bottle by Kailo or a spray from Oiliving Life, like this one! There are seemingly endless scents offered by each of these brands and they’re all lovely. I particularly like this Smudging one. Featured are aromas of sage, palo santo, and cedarwood (perhaps the 3 most commonly smudged materials), and each of those elements is definitely detectable in this blend! The idea of this spray is to be able to smudge without the smoke, but it can also be used as a pillow spray or room freshener!

BuddhiBox Oils April 2018 Stone

Original Way Elestial Crystal – Listed Value $10.00

This month’s crystal is one I’ve never seen before! It’s called Elestial, which is a form of quartz. It’s completely transparent with some dark, smoky tones represented at the edges. According to the packing list, this stone can be used as a catalyst for healing and change. Lovely!

BuddhiBox Oils April 2018 The Moon Incense

BuddhiBox Oils April 2018 Incense Cones

Kheops Moon Cone Incense — Listed Value $5.00

After several months of receiving various colors of reiki candles (which were awesome, but started to feel repetitive), I was excited to find these incense cones in my box! I’m having trouble putting words to the scent, but I found it to be a rather light, versatile aroma that I can’t wait to burn in my home again. Often incense cones come with a little burner, or a base to position it in, but this one did not. I have several at home so this wasn’t a problem for me, but for those who are receiving their first box, I suggest making one out of foil or propping your cone on the edge of a flower pot, either in the soil or on the dish underneath!

BuddhiBox Oils April 2018 Iced Tea

Story of My Tea: Moon Blend, 1 packet – List Price $4.00

I always love receiving tea in sub boxes, and even though it’s still snowy where I live, this one is a welcome nod to spring! It’s marketed as iced tea, I think because you can actually brew it with cold water, which is neat. Of course, you can also drink it hot if you wish! I decided to go the “hot steep” route because it’s quicker (to steep it cold takes 8 hours) and I was making it in the morning between walking my dog and leaving for work.

I wasn’t expecting it to be so pink! Though, honestly, I don’t know what I expected from a flavor called “moonlight serenade”! It’s really delicious, sort of a berry-peppermint combo.

BuddhiBox Oils April 2018 Meditation

The Dreaming Yogi Meditation – Listed Value $10

In this month’s Dreaming Yogi meditation, Meli helps us connect with the Greek goddess Selene, the goddess of the moon. It’s a 4:37 minute long meditation, which is a little shorter than previous months have been, but sometimes quicker meditations are easier to fit into our schedules, right? Meli spends the first minute or so helping us visualize Selene, then jumps into guiding us through a meditation that will hopefully help us invite Selene into our dreams.

Verdict: I really liked the moon theme of this month’s BuddhiBox Essential Oils box and felt it inspired some fresh products that were fun to explore! The unique stone, the incense cones, and the iced tea were new, interesting offerings for this box. BuddhiBox Essential Oils costs $15.95 (US shipping included), and its contents add up to about $41, which was calculating using listed values.

To Wrap Up:

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

Value Breakdown: At $15.95 for this box, you’re paying approximately $3.19 for each of the 6 included items.

  1. Did you open the bag of incense cones all the way? I have the same brand and there is a small metal piece in the shape of a bottle cap in each one to use as a stand. Nothing special but works in a pinch.

    • This is exactly what I was going to post. I at first thought mine didn’t have one but did find it in the silver bag with the incense cones. I really loved this month’s box!

    • So there is! Thanks for the head’s up!!
