Herbal Bliss November 2016
Herbal Bliss November 2016
Here are the items in the November Herbal Bliss box. It looks like a great holiday box.

I received some sad news when I renewed my yearly subscription. The curator has decided to end the subscription portion of Herbal Bliss. It’s one of my favorite subscriptions, and I am sad to see Herbal Bliss come to an end. I wish her warm wishes in her future endeavors. Here’s a little more information.

I have decided to discontinue shipments of Herbal Bliss effective immediately. This was not an easy decision and I have been thinking through it for some time. I will be working in the background to determine the next iteration of this business for, but it is unlikely that it will continue to be subscription boxes.
I sincerely hope you have enjoyed your subscription. I have loved curating great herbal products for our customers and hope that any new iteration of Herbal Bliss continues on that path. We will update our web page and Facebook with products we like. We will also announce our new business model, should we chose to pursue, on these pages as well.

Fredricksburg Farms Mariposa Dill Dip
The Fredricksburg Farms Mariposa Dill Dip (1 oz, $3.29) smells delicious. The gluten-free dip mix has a wonderful dill aroma that makes my mouth water for chicken salad. I will be preparing the dip as a Christmas week snack.

WiseWay Herbals Lemon Balm Salve
My household knows to reach for a salve when there is a scrap, scratch, or rash. Most of the times the salve will heal it. The WiseWay Herbals Lemon Balm Salve (2 oz, $13.00) has a pleasant lemon scent and is made out of ingredients such as slippery elm bark, lemon balm, black walnut hull and more. This salve is recommended for occasional rashes which means my teenager will be using it. Mariam Massaro is a herbalist with forty years of experience. I hope her products show up in more subscription boxes.

Wimberly Valley Cinnamon Spice Soap
Holiday Soap! The Wimberly Valley Cinnamon Spice Handcrafted Avocado Oil Soap (appx 1.5 oz, appx $2.50) has a wonderful spice scent. The soap also has goat soap in it making it moisturizing to the skin. The travel-sized soap can be used for hair and body.

Rejuvenating Frankincense Refining Cleanser
The award-winning Neal’s Yard Remedies Rejuvenating Frankincense Refining Cleanser (foil, appx $1.00) has frankincense and organic cocoa butter in it. The wonderfully scented cleanser felt soothing to my skin.

Raven’s Original Mulling Spices
I live in an area where fresh apple cider is a short drive away. I will be using the Raven’s Original Mulling Spices (6 oz, $3.95) to make spice apple cider later in the week. I can already smell the wonderful spice blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove.

Sadly, my 18th Herbal Bliss Box is my last box. I found amazing products that my family loved and enjoyed over the past year and a half. Some of the products have made a difference in my life such as the Super Salve which made my osteoarthritis bearable last winter. As far as I know, there is no other subscription box similar to Herbal Bliss. We will miss the salves, delicious foods, spices, wonderful bath products and more. The curator has always been warm and friendly in her responses to me. My family wishes her good health and good luck in her future endeavors.

    Anna, could you give me a little more information about the Super Salve and the throat spray? I am in need of both at the moment! Just diagnosed with arthritis and I have a sick daughter. I would love to order them but I didn’t see them on the Herbal Bliss website. Thank you so much.

      I am sorry to hear about your recent arthritis diagnosis. I have osteoarthritis in my back, neck, and right hip. I was desperate for relief from the pain in my hip last winter and decided to try The Super Salve Co All Purpose Super Salve that I received in the August 2015. I mainly tried it because the label described it as an herbal inflammatory reliever. It reduced the pain to the point that I was able to function throughout the winter. Since then, I have used it on days that I felt the pain come back which seems to stop it. It also works great on bites, scratches, etc. I prefer to use the tube over the tins because even my 17-year-old son has a hard time opening the tins.

      I received the Starwest Botanicals Satori Vocal Rescue: in the October 2015 box. My 17 year old is prone to sore throats in the winter. He would spray it a few times every time he felt a sore throat come on and feel much better. I also used it last winter after my nagging cough returned (it kept reappearing all winter) It made my throat feel better and end the cough. I wish I tried it sooner. It has a minty, slight alcohol taste and has organic alcohol in it. My package that I ordered yesterday is already on its way to me.

      These are my experiences. Hope it helps!

    I miss Herbal Bliss! My older son woke up with a sore throat and wanted to know what I had from Herbal Bliss to fix it. I remembered him saying to me when I told him that the box was cancelled, “How are we going to stay healthy over the winter?”

    He requested that I order more throat spray that we received in the October 2015 box which I did,

    Sigh. They always found excellent products that I end up ordering more of because it made a difference in my family life. I miss it.

    So sad! Herbal Bliss always curated a unique and wonderful box with items that are practical yet special and luxurious. Your reviews of this box are ones I always look forward to reading.
