BuddhiBox is a monthly box meant to enhance yoga practice and encourage healthy living. BuddhiBox is $34.95/month for a curated mix of 4-6 samples and full-size products. This is a great box for anyone that is new to yoga or even those who are dedicated yogis. Each month, a portion of their sales goes to supporting an amazing cause. February’s cause is Oceanside Police K9 Association. Donations to this organization helps to keep canine in law enforcement healthy and provides them with the equipment needed to keep them safe on the job.
It looks like the box this month has a new format, slightly smaller than previous month, and the design on the side of the box is different too.

Every box comes with three cards: a quote card with a list of items on the backside, a Yoga Pose Card and a Recipe Card.
The Yoga Pose Card fits perfectly with this month’s theme. A great chest and heart-opener, Salabhasana (shah-lah-BAHS-un-nuh, or the Grasshopper or Locust Pose) is also a great spine strengthener. On the back of the Yoga Pose card, there’s an explanation of the pose, how to access it and its benefits. For once, I can do the monthly pose! For me, it’s a helpful pose to help me breath better in winter as well as relieving the pain from stress-induced migraines.
February is all about Treating Yo’Self! Great fact: on the info card, the items are marked when they are vegan, cruelty-free and/or organic.
The Recipe this month is a “Cough Tea” where spices are boiled in water to be then sipped like a tea. Sounds good and lucky me, I didn’t get a cold yet this winter! (Crossing fingers, touching wood.)
Smudge Stick ($5). This item should have been included in January’s box, but was missing. The owner decided to include it in February’s box, so don’t look for it on the info card! Made of Sage, this smudge helps cleansing and is used in purification rituals. Just light it and let it smolder. Be careful, this thing creates enough smoke to get a sensitive smoke detector going crazy. Make sure to open a window and allow the purification process to send the negativity out the window (that’s where you want the negative vibes to go, isn’t? ) Smells great!
ToeSox – Casual Socks ($18). I LOVE polka dots! Love love love! My husband thought I had chosen them myself, they are so me! These socks were medium sized, perfect for US shoe size 8.5 -10.5. I’m a size 7.5-8, so the toes were slightly loose, but they are so comfortable! They have fitted heel, arch support band, and five-toe construction to encourages toes to spread for healthier feet, and they go up to the middle of my knees (I’m short). I prefer to crunch them so they reach the middle of my shin. So cute! There were different design of these socks in the boxes.
Gogh Jewelry Design – Crystal Charm Bracelet ($30). Such a lovely and delicate bracelet! Love it! The chain is silver 925, and the Buddha charm is also in silver. I’m not sure what kind of crystal it is (gemstone? glass? svarowsky?), but mine is in a lovely shade of grass green, a great complement to the Heart Chakra. Different charms were available: OM, lotus or Buddha. I love the little Buddha! Just rub his belly once a day to bring you luck and prosperity! This is a small bracelet, only 17cm (6.75″) in length, with no extender chain. I prefer small bracelet (I have very small wrist) and this bracelet fits me perfectly without the charms getting too much in my way. If the chain isn’t long enough, the charms can easily be removed from the chain, so they can be worn on a longer bracelet or on a necklace.
Raw Rose Quartz Crystal ($10). When looking for the stone to help the Heart Chakra (emotions, love, relationship), Rose Quartz is the perfect stone. Maybe not my favorite stone out there (I have a weakness for blue stones), but a lovely Rose Quartz for February. And I can’t say no to a new stone in my life. So pretty! (Send all the stones my way, please!)
BlenBee – Té Amoré – Love & Light Potion ($10). Organic Lemongrass, Ashwagandha Root (Indian Ginseng), Coconut, Carob Bean, Rose Petals, Oatstraw (Avena Sativa), Passionfruit Herb, this is a herbal tisane created to inspire deep love! It comes with a code for a discount on their website. The bag includes a reusable muslin tea bag. I liked it, even though I thought the coconut flavor was too strong for me.
Cozy Orange – Twist Headband ($12). I can’t get enough headbands. And this one is super cute with the twisted design! I’m not so sure about the color, but it does fit the theme for this month’s Love and it goes with my brand new socks! It is very soft and it’s made from recycled plastic bottle fibers!
Co-Pur – Lip Balm ($4). I’m so happy to see another Co-Pur product in this box! I’ve tried their Body Balm that was included in November’s BuddhiBox, and it did miracles on my extremely dried and chapped feet! Made with only 7 ingredients (coconut oil, beeswax, organic shea butter, organic cocoa butter, peppermint oil, and rosemary oil), this is a nice moisturizing and cooling lip balm. It has a very nice and rich texture, you don’t need a ton of it on your lips to get the full effect of it!
BuddhiBox Bonus – Jo-Sha Wipe ($3). A sample of their wipes, this one uses peppermint essential oil to invigorate the mind and awaken dull senses. Can be used to clean a mat, or hands and feet! Nice little bonus, this one will go in my purse.
I’m in love with this lovely Treat Yo’Self themed Buddhibox! It is a fun box, playful with a very strong feminine vibe! I loved everything about this box! I felt like someone send me a care package to get through this very snowy and cold month, by reminding me to take care of myself and stay active (does shoveling snow every day counts?) Sweat it on the mat, then relax with cozy socks and a cup of tea!
I really like that Buddhi Box takes you a bit further with a recipe (that you can make over and over again) and with giving back to a great cause every month!
