August 2019 BuddhiBox Essential Oils Box Review
BuddhiBox always includes a card with a mantra or saying on it. On the reverse is this month's packing list. Most of the products they include are cruelty-free, organic, vegan, or more than one!
The Dreaming Yogi Meditation Access — Listed Retail Value $10.00
Included this month is a small card with a link to meditation led by Meli, the Dreaming Yogi. The mediation is just shy of 7 minutes long, so it is short enough to fit into your day but long enough to be meaningful. The theme is "Be Authentically You."
Scentuals Balance Roll-On Blend, 9 ml - Retail Value $12.11
This roll-on had some of my favorite oils mixed to form a lovely scent. Neroli, ylang-ylang, and juniper make a floral but heady blend that smelled really great on. Aside from the mood-lifting effect (mostly due to that neroli!) I also was asked a few times what perfume I was wearing. Win-Win!
Flourite - Listed Value $7.00
Good to Know: This stone is almost 1 inch long.
I have always loved flourite for its intriguing layers and radiant natural colors. This piece is a little lackluster and resembles quartz more than the colorful flourite I am used to seeing.
Moon Infusions Calm Moon Drops, 3.1 fl oz – Retail Value $50.00
This is the third bottle of these drops I have gotten this year, if you can believe that! I actually do like them though, so I am not super upset about it. I like to add these drops to my water to give it a little flavor and *hopefully* add a little relaxation to my day. I always have a difficult time assessing if products like this actually work, but even if this one doesn't it still adds a load of vitamin C to my day. The main ingredients have been clinically tested, so perhaps it isn't all in my head.
Scented Votive Candle by The Crystal Crowe - Listed Value $10.oo
Ahh, the traditional BuddhiBox Essential Oils Box votive. These have historically been valued on the card for $12, but it looks like this month it is $10. I always feel a little bad harping on this listed price because the votives from The Crystal Crowe always smell nice and burn well. They are a good quality votive! I just continue to wish that the pricing was more believable.
The Verdict: BuddhiBox Essential Oils Box was good this month. I always enjoy the votives, even though their pricing issues continue. I also already know and appreciate the Moon Drops and I use them pretty often. The roll-on smells excellent and though the flourite was a rather sad example of that sort of stone, it was still an ok addition to my collection.
To Wrap Up:
Value Breakdown: This box costs $16.95 + free shipping, which means that each of the 4 items in the box (minus the meditation) has an average cost of $4.24.
