Frequency Box “Water” April 2018 Review
First of all, I’d like to thank Heart + Honey (careful, their reviews are kinda NSFW) for introducing me to Frequency! Their March box featured a New Moon Ritual Kit which I just adored and I was tickled to find out that they have their own subscription box, so I HAD to get it!
I love that the info card mirrors the colors of the included Lapiz Lazuli Pyramid that’s included!
The back has a short paragraph on why all of the items were chosen for this month’s theme which is “water”. I’m a water sign (Pisces) so I was really excited to receive this one as my first box! The card also has all of the items listed out, how to use them, and their retail value.
All of the more delicate items were wrapped very thoughtfully!
Frankincense Essential Oil with Red Aventurine, 0.5 oz. – Retail Value $8.99
Each one of Frequency’s Essential Oils come with stones inside to boost its power. Frankincense alone promotes spiritual harmony and has been used for ages in medicinal practices to help to promote an overall feeling of well-being and satisfaction. While it isn’t my favorite scent, I do like the properties it has and with the pairing of the Red Aventurine, it is supposed to unlock ancient secrets! Sign me up.
Lemon Essential Oil with Golden Jade, 0.5 oz. – Listed Retail Value $7.99
I have been really into lemon the past couple of weeks due to all of the tea I’ve been drinking. This essential oil smells exactly how you would assume and it paired with Golden Jade. Since lemon is refreshing and cleansing, it’s perfect to use as a way to freshen up the home via a few drops in a spray bottle of water, and they even suggest adding a few drops to your garbage disposal. Overall, the lemon scent is uplifting, so it’s a great way to keep yourself upbeat.
Eucalyptus Essential Oil with Rainbow Flourite, 0.5 oz. – Listed Retail Value $7.99
The final essential oil this month is eucalyptus which immediately begins to clear up my sinuses when I inhale. As predicted. this one has antiseptic properties and can help clear breathing passages so it’s a good one to keep bedside when the sniffles arrive. They suggest mixing this with the lemon oil in a diffuser to make a great cleansing combo. It comes with rainbow fluorite stones in it as well.
Frequency Clarity Spray, 4 oz. – Retail Value $8.99
Continuing this amazing tour of scents, they’ve included a full-size bottle of their Clarity Spray which has to be one of the best things I’ve ever smelled in my life. The essential oils in this blend of pink Himalayan salt water and rainbow fluorite stones are spearmint. lime, rosemary, and eucalyptus. My word, it is just so refreshing and wonderful! The directions to use this (on your body or in your space) is to shake up so the fluorite energizes the water, and focus on clearing your mind before spraying and breathing in. This has the ability to help you clear your mind to focus better, so I think I’ll be leaving this in my office at work. I just love it!
Lapiz Lazuli Pyramid – Listed Retail Value $14.99
Yes! I love receiving crystals, especially in this powerful pyramid form. The info card tells me that Lapiz Lazuli helps bring inner peace and clear the mind, which stays in tune with the other items of the box. It likens the deep blue coloring with golden flecks to waves crashing on a beach and I have to agree. Staring into makes me feel good, so I may also keep this one at work to keep me clear-headed. The base is two-inches squared so it’s a great size as well.
Lavender Bundle – Listed Retail Value $2.00
Haha- the card for this item simply says “does lavender ever need an excuse?” Certainly not in my book! I enjoyed using lavender as part of the ritual bath from their New Moon Ritual Kit so now I know that I can use it to drop into a calming bath, or in tandem with a smudging stick to clear my space and set new intentions.
Hirschbar Water Element Soap, 4 oz. – Retail Value $7.00
The featured artisan this time is Hirschbar, a husband and wife team who handcraft soaps and candles, among other things. This 100% vegan soap is made with all natural ingredients and uses cedar, juniper, sage, and lemongrass essential oils that are all associated with the Water element in Traditional Chinese 5 Element Theory to help you replenish the water aspect in your life. From their website:
The Water element represents adaptability, beauty, and diplomacy as well as our long-term goals in life. It is also linked to sociability, sympathy, and artistry. In general, the Water element is associated with the North direction and the associated body parts/organs are the kidneys, bladder, and ears.
I love that this soap has a rough edge that also happens to look like a wave with its blue hue. While dry, the soap has a very subtle pleasing scent that is not overpowering at all.
Hirschbar Water Element Candle, 5 oz. – Retail Value $7.00
In addition to the soap that can help replenish your water aspect, they’ve sent a soy candle as well. This holds all of the same properties as the soap but can be lit to help replenish via scent instead of lathering up. As it says on the side of the candle, you can use this to help with career, long-term goals, and communication as well. 🙂
The Verdict: I loved my first Frequency Box and learning all about different aspects of the Water element! They sent such a great variety of items to keep your mind clear and open while staying balanced. The pyramid and clarity spray were probably my favorite items of the box, but I’m excited to put the essential oils to good use around my home as well! I can’t wait to see what future boxes hold!
