Merkaela Review Spring 2017
Merkaela is a quarterly subscription box that makes wellness and tranquility easy to experience. Their all-natural health and wellness products, delivered right to your door each quarter, are made on site with ingredients you can pronounce and know. They are made with you in mind and formulated to nourish your body, your mind and your spirit. They kindly sent us this box for review.
Subscription boxes evoke different feelings. There are some that make me excited, there are some that overwhelm me, there are some that simply put a smile on my face, and there are some that evoke a peaceful feeling. Merkaela is the latter. I have come to love this subscription box, actually I more than love it. Merkaela is one of the best subscription boxes I receive. I live for the day that this becomes a bimonthly subscription…..3 months between boxes is just too long to wait.
Spring Box – Bloom
Spring is the ideal season for starting something new. It’s revitalizing energy is perfect for figuring out what we’d like to accomplish this year, as well as for planting the seeds of our intentions with clarity and purpose.
The Bloom Box includes an expansive collection of products crafted with their medicinal and metaphysical properties in mind to deepen self-appreciation and strengthen your connection to help you relax: become free of fear, exude confidence and express self-love.
Here’s a closer look at the items we received in the Spring box:
Lemongrass Castille Soap
Perfect for naturally dry or sensitive skin. Organic coconut oil, olive and jojoba oils sooth irritated skin, as organic aloe vera helps soften and smooth rough patches. Rosemary and lemongrass essential oils act on the sensory receptors, creating a sedative effect for the central nervous system.
Can this sound any more amazing! I am absolutely thrilled to see a bottle of castille soap in the box this season. And one that is made with jojoba and rosemary! I can’t wait to use this one. It is supposed to promote calmness and uplift the spirit.
Divine Rose Bath
Specifically crafted to play up your sensuous side. Use it whenever you want to have a luxurious botanical experience whenever the mood strikes. And, if you have a special someone, invite him or her to join you for a spa-like experience.
Merkaela is almost solely responsible for getting me back into the bath game. Thanks to the amazing bath products we receive each season (like this one) I make sure to take time at least once a week to have a bath. This is made with rose petals, jasmine and lavender.
Jasmine Secret Garden Tea
An aromatic, pleasant and decadent tea. With flavourful hints of sweet Caramel, slow roasted Chestnut and robust jasmine make this white tea completely irresistible. And, the leading effects of fuil Bai Yun tea leaves, found in the Guo Shan Mountains along the coast of Fujian Province, help fight the effects of aging and improve complexion.
Everything about this season’s tea sounds amazing, and it smells phenomenal. It really does! The chestnut gives it a cream/buttery smell. I can only imagine how good it is going to taste. And it claims to help regenerate skin cells! How do I get my hands on a lifetime supply of this stuff?
Rosemary Lavender Spiritual Elixir
Infused with powerful ingredients that help you calm the mind, regulate emotions and uplift the spirit. Formulated to fill your heart with warmth and tranquility, the elixir helps you connect to the powerful and loving spirit of Mother Earth.
This is made with lavender, rosemary and witch hazel, and I think it smells divine. I actually just spritzed a little over my head. It is supposed to raise awareness, release tension and stress.
Lavender & Rose Body Butter
The stimulating scent of rose and lavender essential oils will lift your mood, allowing for peaceful and loving feelings to arise providing a sense of well-being.
Merkaela body butter has become my go-to body moisturizer. I don’t use it every day, but that’s only because I love it so much that I’m scared to run out. It is a tad bit oily but ends up absorbing nicely. I keep one beside my bed, and also like to use it after my baths.
Palo Santo Smudge Stick
A natural purifier used for getting rid of bad spirits or negative energies. With a clear mind and good intentions ignite your smudge stick. Hold at about a 45 degree angle pointing the tip down toward the flame. Allow it to burn for about 30 seconds and blow out. Then walk around your workspace, home, car, bathroom or anywhere you would like to clear the energy.
I’m still getting use to smudge sticks, but so far I am a huge fan. We have received one every season and I love that. I hope this is a staple product in their boxes. Having this one in front of me is making me want to smudge my workspace asap.
Green Aventurine Triangle Pendant
Known as the “Stone of Opportunity”, the moon-charged Green Aventurine Triangle Pendant brings good fortune to all those who wear it. Since the green stone is considered to be the luckiest of all crystals, make sure to use it when you’re down on your luck.
In every box we have received some sort of jewelry item and/or crystal. Last season we received a clear quartz pendulum and I honestly use it on a regular basis. It’s probably one of the best items I have received in a subscription box over the last few years. I am equally excited about this month’s jewelry item. Not only is it gorgeous, but I love the meaning behind it as well.
Merkaela Review Spring 2017 – Final Thoughts
I’m tempted to say that I am Merkaela’s biggest fan. I absolutely adore this box. Everything about it is perfect. I always end up keeping the items for myself as I can’t bear to part with them. One of my friends asked me for some of the items once, and I’ve never been one to say no, except when it comes to this box. She got a big fat no. I use the items we receive each season to create spa nights for myself. I run a bath, light a candle, grab a book, line up all my Merkaela products on the bathroom counter and enjoy some “me” time. I can’t say enough about this subscription box. If you like all-natural health and wellness products then you MUST give it a try……you must!
