Warm Hug June 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.

Warm Hug ships in a pizza box with a logo sticker on it.  Inside I could see most of my items all spread out and it didn’t look like my chocolate was melts this time!

They send you a letter detailing what scents, oils, and stones you would be getting, plus a little about them.

Affirmations

They have changed up the affirmations this month and they are more professional looking.  The messages are similar to what they had been and a good way to remind yourself to take care of you.

Tea

The blend this month is Heartburn Tea.  It is a mix of peppermint leaf, anise, and chamomile.  It smells fantastic and I don’t care if it works for heartburn because peppermint is my favourite tea.  The amount of tea they send gives you quite a few cups as well.

Handmade Bath Salts and Soap

The soap this month is Pineapple and it is a glycerin soap.  They have lovely moulds that they use and the butterfly is pretty.  The bath salts are lime and the letter tells that lime essential oil is antiseptic, antiviral, prevents aging symptoms, and helps restore energy.

Chocolate

Well I was wrong and my chocolates did melt a bit.  Thankfully they didn’t make a mess like last month though.  I enjoy the assortment of Lindt and savour each one.

Gemstone

The stone this month is Serpentine.  It is good for meditation and to balance mood swings.  Lord knows I need this stone!!  It also can help with stomach cramps and if you’re nursing it can help regulate your milk supply.

Essential Oil Blend

This months blend is Back Balm.  You spray it on your back and rub it in to loosen tight muscles and calm nerve endings.  I’m not sure what the oil is but it has one of the worst scents I’ve received from them. As long as it works I guess.

Earrings

I don’t mind this months earrings.  They have pink and clear beads with filigree hearts on the end.

Surprise

The surprise item this month is an eye sleeping mask.  It is a nice touch and I can use this.

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.
