AromaBox August 2018 Review
This month’s theme is “The Bold”. That’s Leo for you! I like that this year’s role-based themes have been loosely based on characteristics of the corresponding zodiac signs. Fun!
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 “Be Bold Room Spray!”
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.
Bay Laurel, 1/6 oz – Retail Value $16.80 per 1/3 oz
Bay laurel is a really unusual scent to me – it’s definitely green and herbal, but it has a little bit of a spicy kick to it as well. Bay laurel is good as an antiseptic / analgesic, it’s good for mental clarity and stress reduction, and in ancient times the Greeks used it to promote prophetic visions. That’s quite a mighty little oil!
Lime, 1/6 oz – Retail Value $6.90
Yep, it’s lime! Aside from making me crave chips & queso, lime is great for colds, fever, and infections. It’s good for clearing other scents (like cooking), and like many other citrus scents, it’s effect is uplifting and energizing.
Petitgrain, 1/6 oz – Retail Value $14.90 per 1/2 oz
Petitgrain is an interesting oil, as it is distilled from the leaves and twigs of various citrus plants. I don’t particularly like the smell, it is more of a deep plant scent than citrus. But, it is good for stress and acne, and it is part of the Bold theme because it gives strength and joy when you might be feeling weak and vulnerable.
The Bold Roll-On Essential Oil Blend – Retail Value $16.95
This month’s blend has a sweet and spicy scent, I like it! I have been meaning to mention, all of the Herb Stop roll-on blends are suitable for wearing as a fragrance. Some of the essential oils they send are not really something I would want to smell like (petitgrain, I’m looking at you), but the roll-ons all usually smell great. This month’s blend is formulated to embolden the wearer! It’s a blend of coffee, cardamom, Peru balsam, cinnamon, beeswax, and jojoba oils.
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. Plus, the value is also always consistently high. I am a big fan!
