Jasmine Seven Yoga Mat Wipes I love Jasmine Seven wipes ~ I have used their peppermint foot wipes for a long time and then I couldn’t find them anymore. I am glad to see this brand back again with yoga mat wipes, but these are also gentle enough for your body. They have a lavender and tea tree scent, very lovely. Lavender and tea tree are both anti-fungal, antibacterial and antimicrobial, with healing properties. These ingredients will really help freshen and disinfect my yoga mat as well as my body. This is made with all natural ingredients and no alcohol. 1o wipes RV $3.95
Ingredients: water, glycerin, coco glucoside, tocopherol (vitamin E), aloe barbadensis leaf extract, gluconolactone & sodium benzoate, dehydroacetic acid, citric acid, chamomila recutita extract, lavandula angustifolia (lavender) oil, melaleuca alternifolia (tea tree) oil
Cuccio Somatology Calming Yoga Elixir Spray (Lavender & Cardamom) This is my lucky month! I was afraid of rose products because of Valentine’s Day, but it looks like Lavender is the top scent this month for Yogi Surprise. This states it has cardamom in it, but the ingredients do not reflect that ~ it does have orange, tea tree, rosemary and sage in it. This is a great aromatherapy room spray, to help calm and relax your mind and it can also be put on moist towels, if you are having a home-spa or just whenever you need a pick-me-up This scent is just lovely and since it has tea tree and rosemary in it, it is also an antiseptic spray.

Ingredients: PEG-7 glyceryl cocoate, water, propylene glycol, lavandula angustifolia (lavender) oil, butylene glycol, citrus nobilis (mandarin orange) peel oil, melaleuca alternifolia (tea tree) leaf oil, rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf oil, tocopherol (vitamin E), salvia officinalis (sage) oil
Booda Butter Suds of Love All-in-One Soap I LOVE the packaging!! Happy Buddha! This soap is made with just a few ingredients: olive oil, coconut oil, shea butter, spring water and sodium hydroxide, which is removed after the oils are saponified. This artisan soap is air dried for over 2 months and is hand crafted and hand cut. Booda Butter Suds of Love can be used as a normal body soap, a shampoo bar and as a shaving soap too, as it is supposed to have a rich foamy lather. It is perfect for dry, itchy skin and this is the season for me to have dry and itchy skin. It doesn’t have a scent, other than …soap, which makes this very attractive to those who do not like scented products. This is made with certified organic and raw oils, unscented, non-GMO, cruelty free and free from additives, palm oil and wax. Bood Butter soaps are biodegradable and so can be used for camping.

Valentina’s Naturals Balancing Beauty Mist Toner Oh I love apple cider vinegar facial mists. This is a toner made with … organic apple cider vinegar, which helps purify and rebalance your skin, helping prevent blemishes and rashes. It also has the soothing, anti-inflammatory ingredient of organic witch hazel, which also is a natural astringent. Witch hazel is blemish prone skin’s best friend because it has antibacterial and antiseptic qualities which helps clear up acne and it removes excess oil from skin. It also helps shrinks blood vessels, which tightens our skin. Witch Hazel can speed up healing and is a powerful anti-inflammatory, which also helps soothe skin. Finally, Witch Hazel refreshes and rejuvenates skin, refines the pores and seal in moisture. It also has aloe vera, a powerful moisturizer that doesn’t leave your skin feeling oily or greasy. It soothes, treats inflammation, helps speed up skin healing and also has a plethora of antioxidants ~ beta-carotene, Vitamin C and Vitamin E, which help improve your skin’s firmness and keeps your skin moist and hydrated. It also contains over 75 different nutritious ingredients, including minerals, enzymes, amino acids, salicylic acid and much more. Now, this DOES smell like apple cider vinegar, but thankfully, I do love that scent! It isn’t as strong as some ACV products. Full Size 4 oz RV $22.00
Ingredients: Distilled Water, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Leaf Water, Organic Pyrus Malus (Apple) Cider Vinegar, Organic Glycerin, Organic Aloe Vera, Organic Grape Alcohol, Lonicera Caprifolium (Honeysuckle) Extract**, Lonicera Japonica (Japanese Honeysuckle) Extract**, Glyceryl Caprylate**, Sodium Levulinate**, Sodium Anisate** cosDNA analysis **Ecocert approved, naturally-deprived preservative
Balanced Guru Style Me Organic Styling Hair Oil I own this and I ADORE IT. If you told me back in 2014, that I would love to use hair oils and serums in my naturally fine, straight and oily hair, I would have given you this look
No one does a side eye like the glorious Michelle Obama!
Then somehow, somewhere, I got some hair products, like a light leave in conditioner, a hair treatment and then oils from Balanced Guru. The trick is to find one that works for your hair and how to apply it. I only use hair oils at the ends of my hair, just to smooth the hair shafts and give it some shine and bounce. It helps prevent flyaways during dry, cold weather outside and the hot, dry forced air inside. I reviewed it in my mega blog post about Hair Treatment products a year ago and I will repeat that review again here, as nothing has changed! This smells like an herbal mint limeade, which might be due to the citrus aurantium ingredient. Once again, Balanced Guru has created an smell-o-rama delight for me! This is a lightweight, greenish-yellow oil and I only use this product on the very ends of my damp hair, prior to blow drying. This really helps seal the tips of my hair and prevent flyaway’s and static cling hair. I also find it much easier to blow dry and flip my hair under with my ceramic round brush when I use this product. My hair feels soft, not greasy or weighed down. This is enriched with soybean, argan, pumpkin, sesame and tamanu oils, along with so many other oils as well! The description on the card stated it was the detox product, but I got the hair oil. If you got the detox scalp product, it’s all good as the detox is fantastic as well! Full Size 1 oz Value $18.99
Ingredients: Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil*, Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil*, Olea Europaea (Olive) Oil*, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Oil*, Ethyl Palmate*, Argania Spinosa (Argan) Oil*, Mixed Tocopherols (Vitamin E), Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil*, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Flower Oil*, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil*, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil*, Calophyllum Inophyllum (Tamanu) Nut Oil*, Cucurbita Pepo (Pumpkin) Seed Oil*, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Extract*, Citrus Sinensis (Sweet Orange) Fruit Peel Oil*, Urtica Dioica (Nettle) Extract*, Lecithin*, Citrus Aurantium (Petitgrain) Oil*, Euterpe Oleracea (Acai) Fruit Extract*, Lycium Barbarium (Goji) Fruit Extract*, Mentha Spicata (Spearmint) Oil*. * Certified Organic Ingredients cosDNA analysis
Another fantastic month from Yogi Surprise ~ I love the toner and hair oil (a major favorite of mine). The yoga wipes and aromatherapy mist are fantastic ~ I love lavender scents ~ and the 3 in 1 soap will be going in my shower tomorrow ~ I am going to see how well it foams! And finally, I enjoyed the blueberry-vanilla energy bar ~ I wish we got more than one in our boxes, though! I paid $35.96 (as I used a promo code) for this box and received a RV of almost $64.00
