What is it? BuddhiBox 
How Much? $30.95 per month, plus $9.99 shipping to Canada (US$) 
What’s in it? Mix of 4-6 full-size products and product samples to enrich mind, body, and soul.

BuddhiBox is a subscription service for yoga lovers. The goal of BuddhiBox is to deliver "monthly mindfulness through a curated box of products that enhance your yoga practice and lifestyle". Each month you will receive items that enrich mind, body, and soul. Items may include healthy food, supplements, beauty products, and yoga accessories. A monthly BuddhiBox will include 4-6 products for you to discover and share. Even if you don't practice yoga, BuddhiBox is for people who enjoy a peaceful and mindful existence. BuddhiBox practices Saucha (living purely) and only partners with businesses that follow ethical and conscious standards in production. They also donate a portion of proceeds to charity.

If $41 US per month is too much for you, BuddhiBox also offers a mini version. For only $11.95 per month, plus shipping, you can get 2-3 product samples and coupons. This review is for a regular box.

Quote of the month & first look!

The yoga pose this month is Tree Pose (vrksasana) and the recipe of the month is Kitchari, a curried rice dish originating from India.

Wellness by Helen 100x Washed Rosewater Ghee Face & Skin Cream (1oz, $15)
You want your skincare regimen to be as clean as your diet for the most beautiful skin possible! The skincare Philosophy in Ayurveda is that you only want to put on your skin what you would put in your body. Ghee is extremely nutritious and is a traditional food, used for cooking, for detoxing, for nourishing, as a medicine to drive herbs deeper into the tissues, and as a superb skin cream. 100x Washed Ghee is specially made with care and attention for a radiant complexion. Ghee is traditionally used in Ayurvedic Healing as a healthy fat for nourishment on the inside as well as on the outside, and is especially healing when used on the skin.
For those that aren't aware, Ghee is clarified butter. This cream contains only Organic Grassfed Ghee (butter made from organic milk produced by grassfed cows), purified water, and rosewater.

AILA Cosmetics Nail Lacquer in Namaste ($17)
Add a splash of color to your warrior postures & admire your fingertips in your arm balances with AILA Cosmetics' nontoxic nail lacquers. Luxe colors created with all natural & organic ingredients to promote beauty, confidence, & healthy nail growth. Vegan & cruelty free, made in the USA.
This colour is described as "warm mocha with a glimmer".

Ohm K Tattoo & Coupon Code (Bonus Item)
Ohm K is an online shop that sells yoga inspired tank tops, tee's, and other items. 

SacredxStones Mini-Mala Bracelet ($10 CDN, ~$8 US)
Malas are used to assist one in keeping count, while reciting mantras or affirmations. Traditional malas consist of 108 beads. For the yogi on the go, SacredxStones mini-malas consist of 54 beads & are designed for shorter meditations. Each Mala features a matching tassel & gemstone. Use to reset after your yoga practice or to bring mindfulness into your busy day.
Hello, Canada! SacredxStones is based in Edmonton, Alberta. It's nice to see some Canadian representation in Buddhibox! 

BlendBee Love Oolong Time Organic Tea (0.5oz, $2.50)
Wake up and smell the flowers with this intoxicating blend of premium oolong, peppermint, hibiscus, lavender and licorice root. Designed to tempt your pallet and awaken your body.
I love peppermint tea and this blend smells great. The packet contains a reusable muslin teabag too!

Quinntessentials Hand Sanitizer Spray ($10)
We work up a sweat on our yoga mats, increasing the amount of bacteria not only on the mat but on our hands. This organic alternative to hand sanitizers allows you to stay clean & healthy. Made with organic lemon & rosemary essential oils in a base of water and isoprpyl alcohol.
I couldn't find this on the Quinntessentials website, so maybe it's a new product. It's a great concept, but I don't love the scent. I'm just not a fan of rosemary. I would be down to try any other scent though.

Mama Kuka YogaSphere Medium Strap ($8)
Experience the fullest expression of your yoga asanas. The YogaSphere strapping system was created to promote the wave of satisfaction that floods a student as they grab a toe for the first time, find a bind, or just discover extra depth in a pose. Mama Kuka's namesake is an Incan Goddess revered as the goddess of health & joy. Channel her energy to inspire your practice.
This is a cool accessory and it looks like it could be helpful for a yoga beginner like myself. I might pass it on to my yoga friend though. I gave her the Aurorae Yoga Slip Free Rosin Bag from the January box and she absolutely LOVES it and would recommend it to anyone. I bet she will get a kick out of this unique product as well.

The March BuddhiBox includes six products, with a retail value of $60.50 US (~$77 CDN). This box costs $41 US with shipping (~$52 CDN). This is probably my favourite Buddhibox to date. Even if you aren't into yoga, there is a lot of great things in this box. I love that it includes mindful beauty & body products, tea, a meditation item, and a yoga item. There is lots in here to bring peace and mindfulness to daily life.

If the March box peaks your interest, it's available for one-time purchase from the Buddhi store. Click here to check it out. Partial proceeds from the March box go to Shelter to Soldier, an organization that rescues shelter dogs and trains them to be psychiatric service companions for wounded combat veterans.
