BuddhiBox Monthly Subscription Review – November 2015 Box
The truth of the matter is that we humans are only on this earth for a short time, and unless we make a impact or a change generation ahead are going to be in a worse world then now. My husband was taught a lesson in camping, that I believe applies to life – Leave the campsite better then you found it. I think that this is really a lesson that applies to everyday life, not just once a year.
If we continue our destructive and somewhat careless lifestyles, then we are leaving a worse world for generations to come. We need to continue the kindness to others, continue to learn about things we do not understand, and pass on the good in human nature then things are going to get worse. That is one reason I look forward to my monthly Buddhi Box – these are messages that are important in the yoga world.
I recently received the November Buddhi Box and I am beyond impressed. Earlier in the year, I had the opportunity to review previous boxes (click here) and they are always a fun adventure in the yoga lifestyle. The message is always one of compassion, and understanding and living a pure life.
After the breast cancer theme of last month, we are back to the familiar bright green tissue paper. This month came with 3 cardboard information cards that are in full color and on thick glossy card stock. The first card was the Yoga pose of “Scale Pose” that shows the pose in full color, as well as the benefits about the pose. These pose cards are made especially for BuddhiBox – click here for a interview with their creator. There is a recipe for a “Pumpkin Spice Cashew Cups” that is made using only 5 ingredients that creates pumpkin spice cashew cups that are similar in shape to cupcakes. The final information card included was a box content listing and on the other side the following quote:

The Beehive Candle and Lotion Review and Giveaway
One of my favorite scents is Lemon, well not just scent but also lemon flavor anything. I went on a chain of meals that consisted of lemon chicken and nothing else. I felt bad for my husband Jason that his pallet was not receiving any sort of flavor stimulation. Flavor aside, I love the freshness of a good lemon scent and will usually purchase the item in question.
Back in July I had the opportunity to review Infusion Organique by Cosmetix West. The candle that I reviewed remains one of my favorite candles, and is only burned on special occasions. When I was doing my research for that review I saw that they had a couple different brands under the Cosmetix West umbrella – one of them being “The Beehive“.
Infusion Organique Review and Giveaway
I love scented candles, but have never been a fan of perfumes. The perfumes that I have come across are strong and when applied heavy can burn noses and make people not want to be near the offending smell. I have always seeked and looked for a perfume that can make me smell more natural and less like I am wearing perfume.
I came across Infusion Organique’s and was intrigued by the scents that they offer and thought that maybe this was the perfume option I had been looking for. They were generous to send me not only a couple of vials of their different scents, but also a roll on perfume and a soy blend candle.
I was sent 4 different vials of perfume including Buddha’s Fig, Sands of Morocco, Indochine and Acai Rain. The Buddha’s Fig includes fig, rose geranium, lemongrass oil, wood and amber scents. The purple colored Sands of Morocco includes vanilla, sandalwood, warm oak moss, lemongrass and ylang-ylang. The Indochine included kumquat, peach, water lily, jasmine, muguet, vanilla, grapefruit extract, orange and ylang-ylang. The pink colored Acai Rain is made of acai, raspberry, currant, white peach, fresh greens and orange oil.
BuddhiBox Monthly Subscription Review and Giveaway – May Box
As my 40th birthday rapidly approaches it causes me to think more, and want to create a better environment for my future self. I often find myself sitting and thinking and wondering what the next 40 years will be for me and if they will resemble the previous 40.
One of the things that I love about BuddhiBox is that they practice ‘Saucha’ or pure living. This basically means that they only partner with companies who follow ethical and conscious standard of productions. Each month a portion of the proceeds is donated to a different charity. This months charity happesn to be Connections to Success, a mid-western charity that seeks to break the cycle of poverty by assisting in continuing education and providing work opportunities to their community.
Earlier in the year, I had the opportunity to review the February BuddhiBox (click here to see that review) as well as the April BuddhiBox (click here to see that review). Given the retail price of the boxes these are value packed and honestly a lot of fun to receive and review.
The bright green tissue paper again greeted me and I found myself eager to tear the sticker and delve into this months box with it’s 3 cardboard information cards as a teaser. On the first card was the “Bird of Paradise” pose that shows the pose, in full color, as well as the benefits and possible cautions about the pose. There was a recipe for a “Healthy 3 Ingredient Date and Almond Chocolates”” that is made using only 3 ingredients (5-10 dates,10 almonds and 1/2 cup of dark chocolate chips). The final information card included was a box content listing and the following quote:
