February Box Details
The February Yogi Surprise box theme is “Anahata”
You are a force for love in this world. Open your heart chakra and feel the love with this month’s handpicked offerings.
February is the month of love so it’s fitting that this month’s box theme centers around the heart chakra. In Sanskrit, anahata means “unhurt, unstruck, and unbeaten” – which to me means the heart chakra is a sacred space that gives love and should be protected. You can nurture and protect your heart chakra by giving it love in the first place through self care, yoga and thoughtful meditation that focuses on that love. As usual, the items in this month’s box will help you do just that, especially the self care part!
Here’s a look at what was in this month’s Yogi Surprise box ($86.50 total value):
Rose Quartz “Gua Sha” Heart Stone
Boost circulation to your Anahata or Heart Chakra and get glowing with our custom sold rose quartz Gua She Heart Stone.
Rose quartz is the perfect stone for the month of February since it’s the stone of love and compassion. It reminds us to nurture the love we have for others and ourselves. A great way to show love to yourself is making time for a skincare ritual to calm your mind and rejuvenate your skin. This Gua Sha stone helps increase circulation bring more blood flow to the skin which in turn helps with cell renewal and turnover. It also helps products such as facial oils absorb evenly. Not only that but it feels wonderful on the skin like a massage to muscles that can unknowingly be tense.
Himalayan Salt Body Scrubs
Reveal hydrated, buffed, glowing skin with this luxuriously handcrafted 100% organic Himilayan salt scrub.
Exfoliating your skin can feel like a treat since it’s not often part of an every day skincare routine. This body scrub is the perfect reminder to incorporate exfoliation into your regular routine though. Exfoliation helps remove dead skin cells and increases blood flow to the surface helping to stimulate new cell growth. This salt scrub is made with Himilayan salt and sugar as the exfoliants and is scented with grapefruit essential oil and vanilla so it’s refreshing and sweet.
6’ Yoga Strap
Sink into those hard-to-reach poses with our custom Yogi Surprise 6’ Yoga Strap! This is the perfect tool for deepening your practice.
Yoga straps are a wonderful tool for assisting poses and deepening stretches during a yoga practice. They can give a little resistance to help control a stretch so you can safely deepen it to a comfortable place and increase your flexibility. Growing your practice in this way can help boost your confidence and mood.
Vitamin D3 Supplement
This delicious dark chocolate supplement is packed with 1,000 IU of sunny Vitamin D3 per piece to boost your health and mood!
I’ve been intrigued by these candies for some time but have never tried them so it’s perfect that they were included in this month’s box. Another variety of these supplements was included in the Yogi Surprise Jewelry Box this month (the turmeric version). I like that the item connects the boxes together and carries the theme across. This particular one is vitamin D3 and chocolate. Since the sun is rare this time of year the extra dose of vitamin D3 will be welcome!
Sensualitea Hemp CBD Tea
Brew up a little love potion! Sensualitea is an intoxicating blend of organic lemon balm, lavender, ginger, rose petals and rose hips and of course, holistic hemp-derived CBD.
This is a single serve tea bag that’s infused with hemp-derived CBD. This special ingredient has relaxing and therapeutic benefits. It has been shown to benefit the gut by soothing pains and increasing appetite; the mind since it’s an antioxidant that helps reduce free radicals that damage cells; general pain since it’s an anti-inflammatory that reduces swelling; and it has also been shown to reduce stress and anxiety. The act of drinking tea is stress relieving in itself so couple it with the benefits of CBD and you have a wonderful and simple self-care ritual. This tea smells pretty strongly of herbs but would likely be lighter in taste. The herbal ingredients included are meant to inspire love.
Love Brew CBD Essential Oil Roller
Crafted with exotic sandalwood, ylang ylang, vanilla, cinnamon, jasmine and an estimated 100mg of hemp-derived CBD per bottle to get you in the mood for love.
This essential oil roller is made by the same company as the tea above and also includes the powerhouse ingredient of hemp-derived CBD. Once applied the CBD is absorbed through the skin and gives the same benefits as listed above under the tea. This ingredients used in this roller are meant to also inspire love as well as passion and clarity. It smells warm spicy and sweet with a hint of deep musk – the perfect aroma to get you in the mood for love!
Yogi Surprise Review February 2019 – Final Thoughts
I know some people hate Valentine’s Day for various reasons but I think it’s an important holiday because it can remind us of the most important kinds of love, especially that for ourselves. And what better way to show yourself some love than to move your body through yoga or nurture your inner peace though meditation. Yogi Surprise can help do that all year round but is an especially nice treat to receive as a reminder during the month of February.
