I had no clue what to expect. All I knew about the box was what it said on the side about cooking, healthy, lifestyle. Sounds good to me!
As soon as I opened the box, the wonderful scent of lavender filled the air. I am in love with the April 2016 Out of the Woods Apothecary Box. I did not find an information card. I did see that the box items are listed on the website. There’s additional information about the products on their blog. The theme is Springtime Essentials.
Mmm, mmm, mmm! Peppermint fans rejoice! The Mayernik Kitchen Reawaken Massage Hair Oil ($10.00) has an invigorating peppermint scent. The hair massage oil contains three organic ingredients – jojoba oil, rosemary oil, and peppermint oil. Take a little time for yourself as you emerge from your winter self into your spring self. The hair oil helps with hair growth and dry skin. I followed the directions and applied a little bit at night and washed it out in the morning. Very simple with no residue. I could still smell the peppermint when I woke up in the morning!
The Mayernik Kitchen Coffee Eye Serum ($12.00) has a delicious coffee scent to it. It is created by having fair trade organic coffee grounds soaking in avocado oil and almond oil. Then it is strained creating the serum. The rollerball applicator makes it easy to apply. I found it easy to use.
I am glad to see the Maynerik Kitchen Bug-Off Spray ($7.50). It has cedarwood which can help repel ticks. Living in a place where deer like to feast on my lawn and flowers, ticks are a problem. Shake, spritz, and watch the bugs stay away!
The Mayernik Kitchen Lavender Green Tea Foot Bath ($10.50) smells amazing. The wonderful blend of lavender and green tea permeates the air. My achy feet will appreciate this after a day of gardening or working on the farm. One of the ingredients included is their very own Mayernick Kitchen Lavender! I will be using this in a few days! I vote their container to be the best container I received from a homemade beauty box.
The Mayernik Kitchen Summertime Heal Butter ($8.00) is a fluffy heel butter. It is easy to apply and is a thicker cream. The shea based butter has magnesium flakes in it that may help you sleep better at night when applying the cream before sleeping. I am going to give it a try. It has a great orange scent that comes from the orange essential oil.
The Out of the Woods Apothecary Box is valued at $48.00 which is a few dollars over the subscription price. I feel that is a great value for a crafted by hand apothecary box. I am impressed that Mayernik Kitchen used amber glass bottles. The amber glass bottles keep the essential oils from degrading in the sunlight. I store anything that has essential oils as an ingredient in the closet. Glass bottles are preferred because essential oils such as the orange essential oil used in the Summertime Heel Butter can corrode plastic bottles. I rarely see companies do that in subscription boxes. The container holding the bath salts is a very nice, reusable container. I did guesstimate the sizes of the products to give the reader a sense of size and value. I may be totally off. The items have that pure smell that comes from using natural, not chemical, ingredients. Everything smelled amazing! I will be using everything and agree that they are springtime essentials!
