We're Obsessed With This Subscription Box And You Will Be Too
Calling all health & wellness lovers — this one's for you.
As a health and wellness enthusiast, I was thrilled to receive my Summer 2017 Mantra Box in the mail. I've been following Candace of Yoga by Candace for years now, so when the opportunity to review the Mantra Box came along, you better believe I jumped at it. The YBC Mantra Box is a quarterly discovery box that aims to promote small businesses in the health and wellness industries, and is filled with tons of fun goodies ranging from beauty products and supplements, to jewelry and books. When you order, you're asked to specify if you're vegetarian, paleo, or neither, making it fully adaptable to your lifestyle choices and dietary needs. Plus, Candace is super particular about ingredients, so you know that every one of these products is completely safe for your body. The boxes sell out, so we suggest you hop on ordering your Fall 2017 Mantra Box now.
While I loved every item in my Summer 2017 Mantra Box, I'm sharing some of my favorite products below:
Amazing Grass Beauty Elixir
I love Amazing Grass, and as a fan of their Green Superfood powder, I was so happy to see their Beauty Elixir in the box. This blend not only gives you their signature farm-fresh greens, but also contains an adaptogenic elixir and beauty blend to help combat stress and balance energy levels, while also promoting healthy skin, hair, and nails. Lately I've been loving exploring adaptogens, so to find them in the same place as my daily green power was pretty much a dream come true (dramatic, I know).
Ancient Minerals Magnesium Lotion
Magnesium is a mineral that's crucial to our body's function. Its benefits are seen across a wide range of areas, but most notably it supports energy levels, digestion, and helps relieve muscle aches and spasms. While you can take a magnesium supplement, the mineral is also easily absorbed through the skin. Ever heard of an epsom salt bath? That's magnesium! If you don't have time so soak in a bath for 20 minutes then this magnesium lotion from Ancient Minerals will do the trick. Plus, this lotion is so rich and creamy, it'll keep your skin moisturized for hours. Try it next time you have sore muscles, or just need a quick magnesium fix.
Activated Charcoal Toothpaste
Yes, you read that right — activated charcoal toothpaste brought to you by the folks at My Magic Mud. This toothpaste consists of activated charcoal, coconut
oil, bentonite clay, and organic essential oils to both clean and whiten your teeth. Yes, the toothpaste is black, but we promise it will rinse clean.
Face Food Mineral Mist
I love me some face mist, and this one from Gaydon is my new favorite. It's packed with minerals (more magnesium!) to hydrate and freshen up your skin. Plus, this little bottle is the perfect size to keep stashed away in your purse.
Travel Superfood Blend
Say hello to more adaptogens! These easy-to-take capsules from Stamba are specially formulated to protect against some of the harmful side effects of traveling. They support the immune system, digestion, and energy levels. And just my luck — I received these bad boys right before leaving for a week-long trip!
If all of these items are as exciting to you as they are to me, you should definitely sign up for the Fall 2017 Mantra Box now before they sell out.
