Go Native! April 2018 Review
The info card thanks you for subscribing and has some info on the native plant ohi a lehua which is highly admired for its beauty and attraction of the i iwi bird. It’s also often the first plant to appear after lava flows, so it symbolizes renewal and the celebration of new life.
On the flipside, you’ll find a list of the items and a short description of each.
Kahulalea Eco Canvas Pouch
I’m a pouch fanatic and have so many various ones I use to keep small items together. This 5 x 3.5-inch eco-canvas pouch is a light turquoise color with a black floral pattern made especially for Go Native. A black zipper keeps everything safely inside and it has a gold metal emblem on the front with the company’s name. As the front of the info card mentions, the Hawaiian designer, Kehau Nielson, began making clutches with a borrowed sewing machine using upcycled leather and aloha wear. Today she has a line of bags and clothing. This little pouch is perfect to use as a wallet with space for a lip balm for traveling light, or for a small makeup bag for essentials.
Hoola Raw Lehua Honey and Honey Dipper
I am going honey crazy right now, honey. I have so much in my cabinet because I’ve been making a lot of tea in the evenings and adding it smoothies as well. This honey comes straight from Hawaii with is harvested responsibly from chemical-free apiaries of rescued honey bee colonies on the island. What a great treat!
Anahiki Farms Mamaki and Lemongrass”My Sister’s Tea”, 2 bags
This pouch comes with two tea bags that each offer 2-4 cups of tea. Lemongrass is a big favorite of mine, and this tea smells really wonderful and has a subtle color and flavor. I, of course, added the honey to this as well (with a little lemon) to make a really mellow and soothing cup of tea.
Mamalani and Haloa Aina Iliahi Wai Sandalwood Hydrosol, 2 oz. – Estimated Value $18.00? (similar product found here)
I love the wood around the top of this glass 2-ounce bottle, but the scent isn’t really for me. I was expecting a more woody smell to it, but perhaps I’m not imagining the correct type of sandalwood. This variety is called Santalum Paniculatum and isn’t found anywhere else in the world except Hawaii. I will say that the scent definitely improves after it dissipates a bit though. This can be used on your body or in your space.
Verdict: This month Go Native! filled the box with tea, honey, a spray, and a cute eco-pouch. I’ll have to say the honey and dipper are my faves and I love the tea, but overall this box wasn’t a huge hit for me. I’m not sure this one is worth the $42.00 for me personally, though the values are hard to find online.
To Wrap Up:

Value Breakdown: At $42.00 for this box, you’re paying $10.50 per item (with honey & dipper counted as a set).
