Conscious Box

So if you've been here a while, you know that I love subscription boxes. As wells as a love for awesome packages, I have been trying to introduce healthier and greener products into my family's life. Since I am relatively new to the whole green movement, a box like Conscious Box is perfect for me. You choose between Classic, Vegan, and Gluten free and for $19.95 a month, you will receive a box packed full of GMO-free products. I think it is an awesome way to be introduced to new brands whether you are a newbie, like me, or a green veteran. 

The first, and possibly my favorite, item in the box was a Chocolate Banana bar from 2 Degrees Food. Not only was this bar delicious, but for each bar that is bought, they feed a hungry child. I love supporting companies that give back and when they make a delicious product, it is a win-win. There were also Hemp Hearts from Manitoba Harvest. Now these were interesting. They were rich and nutty in flavor and the texture was interesting. They were tender, yet still had a crunch. Sprinkling these on your normal meals are a great way to introduce extra fiber, protein, and omegas. The last 'edible' were Sleep Squares in a chocolate orange flavor. I have always been a night owl and I love that I now know a more natural product to help me fight my insomnia. 

Being from the South, I am a sweet tea kinda girl. I drink it all day, everyday. When it comes to tea, I make it by the gallon. Rarely will I have a special mug of tea. That being said, I might try more 'special' teas because these were all so good. I'm not saying I am not going to drink my cold, sweet tea but a nice warm mug of tea before bed has proven to be quite nice. From Mighty Leaf there were three flavors: Organic Spring Jasmine, Organic Earl Grey, and Organic Mint Melange. All were delicious, especially the Mint Melange. There was a bag of Carrot Curry Tea from Numi which I let my husband have since curry isn't my favorite. He enjoyed it and I though it smelled really good. The last tea was a bag of Quit Tea. I am no longer a smoker but the tea was quite good. I can't say whether it will help you quit smoking but it was tasty.

From Zarbee's Naturals, there was a packet of Adult Daytime Cough & Throat Relief. I haven't been sick so I haven't tried it but I have used the brand with my children and it was very effective for their colds. There was a BumBoosa bamboo baby wipe and a packet of Vitamin D3 gummies. The CRAM capsules were passed onto my husband as well because energy supplements never sit with me well. The last item in this group was Flor-Essense Detox buy Flora. I haven't tried this and I am a little weary of doing so. Detox sounds...well, scary. I will update once I have grown enough confidence to take this supplement. 

For dogs, there was a BioBag which is a biodegradable waste bad for your pets and a packet of Omega 3 capsules from Nordic Naturals. There was a $100 wine voucher from Naked Wines when you spend $60 dollars on wine and a 50 cent off coupon for Hemp Hearts. The last two items are information pamphlets from Nordic Naturals and Healthmate Sauna. 

Overall, I am very impressed with the items included in my Conscious Box. This box contains a lot more than a lot of other subsciptions boxes out there. For $19.95 and free shipping, I think it is a great buy! Be sure to follow Conscious Box on Facebook and Twitter as well!

Disclosure: I may receive products in exchange for an honest review. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I personally believe will be good for my readers.
