BuddhiBox Monthly Subscription Review and Book Giveaway – May 2016 Box
As we embark in this election year it is becoming clear that the country is divided and needs some injection of peace and love. Every night on the news all that is seen are rally’s that turn into protests and protests that turn into arrest records.
The common thread is that the one thing we need the most, is the one thing that all yogi;s know, we need peace. There are a couple of ways to achieve peace but the easiest is to be what you want to put out into the world. I think many people forget that to be nice is not difficult and the simplest thing we can do.
Each month when I receive my monthly BuddhiBox I am reminded of this simple message. Each month I have the opportunity to review boxes (click here to see the previous reviews) and each month I can expect a nice introduction in the yoga/healthy living lifestyle. The message is always one of compassion, and understanding and living a pure life, as well as being the company’s motto.
This month continues the new box and is strong and sturdy box that is printed on all box sides. I loved that a green crinkle wrap replaced the green tissue paper, but still retained the green theme. 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 “Balasana” that shows the pose in full color, as well as the benefits and directions about the pose. These pose cards are made especially for BuddhiBox by a company called Yogicards. There is a recipe for a “Strawberries Fruit of Spirit and Health” that is made using 6 ingredients The final information card included was a box manifest and on the other side the following quote:
Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage. – Lao Tzu
I have included reviews of the items, included in the box were the following items:
Yogasana – The Encyclopedia of Yoga Poses: This is the most comprehensive asana guide on the market with over 800 yoga poses. This book covers beginners to advanced poses which makes a perfect coffee table book or studio reference book.
Great Soles – Grip Socks: As an ex ballerina I appreciate a pair of socks with a sole on them. Despite the grace and balance I should have I am constantly tripping and sliding around mt floor, which is painful for me to admit. The grip goes from toe to heel and are machine washable on the cold cycle.
Back to Africa – Serenity Massage & Body Oil: An awesome blend of sweet almond oil and Shea butter this provides a nourishing layer to dry and damaged skin. It smells of lavender rosemary oils. This is great to use because it does not leave an oily residue on hands or skin. This dried clean and smells great. As an added bonus proceeds from this help support the a hippo sanctuary in Ghana. House of Good Juju: Aura Cleansing Tea Light Candle – $2.50: The first thing that I noticed about this soy tea light candle was the couple of gems and herb pieces on the top. They say that your aura says a lot about you, and it can send unconscious signals to others. This candle can help cleanse and restore your aura to its regular state.
Hemp Hearts – SAMPLE: This is not the first time that I have tried these Hemp Hearts and each time I enjoy them as much as the time before. Many people like to put pine nuts, sunflower seeds or something with a texture to salads, and I have found hemp hearts are a nice alternative. It’s sustainable and has a rich, nutty flavor with tender crunch. It’s packed with goodness, omegas, digestible proteins, vitamins, minerals, and fiber.
