Go Native! October 2018 Review
The front of the info card this month teaches us the Hawaiian word “Po” which means “night” and “Ao” which means “day”.
On the flipside, you’ll find a list of the items and a short description of each.
I love this little soap dish. The natural wood is beautiful and the slatted base allows your soap to dry between uses. A dry soap is a happy and longer lasting soap! It is made from reclaimed Hawaiian Monkeypod and Mango Wood and the rustic vibe looks great in my bathroom.
The Indigenous Soap Company Vetiver Soap 5 oz. – Estimated Retail Value $8.50
Of course, this box has an amazing soap to compliment my soap dish. I personally love edgier and more masculine scents and vetiver is one of my favorites. This plant is an India native, but in Hawaii, it is used to detox the soil. It has a similar effect on skin and when combined with the activated charcoal in this soap it packs a major detoxifying punch for your skin. I love that this soap did not dry out my skin and that the fragrance fills my shower.
Mamalani+Po’Okela Hauoi Tincture – Estimated Retail Value $22.00
Tinctures are a new interest for me and this is one I am very excited about. This formula contains Hawaiian medicinal Hauoi and other ingredients such as lemon peel and peppercorn. It smells and tastes spicy in a good way and I plan on trying this out in a Hot Toddy this winter in addition to daily sublingual drops. Hopefully, it gives me a much needed little boost during the winter months to come!
The Vetiver Farms Hawaii Vetiver Root Bundle – Buy a larger bundle for $12.00
I was so excited to see this little bundle in this month’s box because I love anything that can be used in my smudge bowl. These are the actual roots from the vetiver plant and the scent is strong, masculine, and right up my alley. These roots are literally used to detoxify and stabilize land all over the world so it is easy to imagine the grounding and calming effect they can have when used at home. While burning, these roots have a sweeter smell than the sage I generally use for smudging.
Verdict: This month’s Go Native! had some really great items! I am so excited to see the long-term benefits of the tincture and have my house smelling like vetiver. The little soap dish will be a staple in my bathroom. While the pieces in this month’s box were all items I liked, they are rather specific. If you are someone who has no interest in tinctures, this box would be a miss for you since the tincture is over half of the box value.
