Warm Hug July 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.

Inside I found a note thanking me for being a subscriber and telling me that since this was my last box they included a bonus gift for me.  Underneath the tissue I could see all of the lovely items they send out.

They don’t have an info card but include a letter telling you about the items.

Affirmations

They send out four so you have a new one for each week of the month.  You are supposed to keep them where you can see them everyday and repeat them to yourself.

Tea

This months blend is Blooms of Beauty and it is a mix of lemon balm, spearmint, chamomile, rose, nettle, alfalfa, dandelion, raspberry leaf, and marjoram.  All of their teas have been very good.  I have mostly been using them for iced tea and they work great.

Handmade Bath Salts and Soap

Normally you would only get one soap but the orange sheep one is my thank you gift.  The actual soap of the month is strawberry.  The bath salts are lemon.  They contain essential oils which can improve your mood and are a natural disinfectant.

Chocolate

Once again slightly melty but no big mess.  It doesn’t affect the taste in the least and they are a nice treat.

Gemstone

This months stone is Picture Jasper.  I have never received a shaped stone from them before.  This gem can help with cravings, fertility, initiative, and to quit smoking.  I’m struggling with my weight loss so maybe this can give me a bit of a boost.

Essential Oil Blend

The blend this month is Beat The Heat and will cool and refresh you on a hot day.  As usual I cannot identify the oils but it smells nice and maybe has some mint?  It is bright and refreshing on my face.

Earrings

Well these are fun summer earrings.  They have little drink glasses with fruit in the rim as the charm.  Cute.

Surprise

The surprise item for this month is a Manicure/Pedicure set.  I’m tossing it in my bag right now because I have been needing a file and clippers for the last few days while we are camping and didn’t have one!  Now I have no excuse.

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.
