Warm Hug May 2016

Warm Hugs is a subscription box that reminds you that you need to take care of yourself as well as others.  They are also Canadian so yay to that!  Boxes will include affirmations, tea, gemstones, essential oil blends, chocolates, bath salts or soaps, earrings, and a surprise.  They make the oils and bath products themselves and sell them on their site.  They also sell the boxes alone and have a Postpartum box that has items new moms can use to sooth sore areas.  You can even order a subscription and get that as your first box if you let them know.  Boxes are $20 plus $7 shipping (Canadian funds!!!!!) but if you go with a six month plan you get 10% off.

Somewhat better after removing it but still fairly hidden.

The don’t have an info card but they include a letter that tells you about each thing and how or why to use it.

Affermations

They include 4 affirmations each month.  You are supposed to keep the were you can see them and speak them to yourself everyday.  As you can see one of the treats got a bit melty and you’ll notice it on a few different things.

Tea

This month the tea is Tranquili-Tea.  It is a blend of red clover St.John’s wart, rose hips, and peppermint leaf.  All the teas I’ve received from them have been excellent and I’ve used them up.

Handmade Bath Salts and Soap

Vanilla bath salts this time, with some of that aforementioned chocolate.  They are made with Epsom salts, sea salt, vegetable based colourant, and fragrance oil.  The soap is Sweet Orange.  It is a glycerin soap and from the other ones I’ve used it lathers well and smells nice.

Chocolate

So here is the cause of all the problems.  Not that it’ll stop me from eating it but one is very melty and flat.

Gemstone

The stone is Carnelian.  It’s used for overcoming negative thoughts, restoring creativity and vitality, calming you, and banishing anger and resentment.  It can also be helpful with lower back problems, depression, arthritis, boosting fertility, and vitamin and mineral absorption.

Essential Oil Blend

Well here we have more of the chocolate.  The oil spray is Memory Boost.  Obviously it helps with memory and also clearing your mind.  I’m not sure what oils are in it but it smells refreshing and pleasant.

Earrings

They include a handmade pair of earrings each month.  These ones are not my style at all.

Surprise

They always add a little something in the box and this month it was a colouring page.  It is unuseable because of the chocolate but a nice touch.

There is no way for me to value this box but it would be about curation more than value anyways.  I fell I got my $20 worth and I love that it is Canadian.  All of the bath products are wonderful, the oil is useful, chocolate can never be bad, tea is welcome, and the gemstone and affirmations are great reminders to stop and think for a minute.  If you want to get your own Warm Hug, click here to check them out.
