Our first glimpse inside the Merkaela Subscription Box for Winter 2017
Everything that we received in our Winter 2017 “Wisdom” themed box. Another beautiful assortment of fabulous products!
So what is all this stuff?
Our box inserts. We have our paper that introduces us to this quarter’s theme as well as a product listing and our affirmation card
This is our prayer and meditation card. Our affirmation is, “Every decision I make, is the right one for me.”
Chamomile Tea Potion
Each Merkaela Box comes with a unique tea “potion”. This quarter’s is a soothing chamomile. Made with Egyptian Chamomile, St. John’s Wort and Anise you can sip your stress away!
This is a loose leaf tea that smells and tastes amazing. Great for cozying up with a book and a blanket
Personal Growth Card
This card gives us some wisdom on living consciously
We love this little mantra and think it really helps to gain perspective!

Bodhi is the Sanskrit word for “Awakened” You can use this while reciting mantras or meditation
Made with coral – these beads become more beautiful with time… as the oils from the skin lend them a petrified look
Woodspice Soap Bar
This warming seasonal scent combines cinnamon and woodspice to make you feel all fuzzy!
The addition of oils like coconut and olive give your skin nourishment and hydration perfect for this time of year!
Calendula Body Exfoliator

Ylang Ylang Body Butter
This large 4 ounce jar of body butter blends Ylang Ylang, Frankincense and Rose that give this a mild scent that is calming and helps us to foster self love.
The formulation of this body butter (like all Merkaela butters) is fantastic. Its creamy and rich and extremely nourishing. This is perfect for after shower or before bed
Bentonite Clay Mask
We love clay masks – so we are excited to have received this Bentonite Clay that’s derived from volcanic ash, helping to get deep into pores and remove dirt and toxins. It also includes chamomile to calm skin.
Here’s the mask! We haven’t had a chance to use this yet but we can’t wait!
These classic Nepali Rope Incense are infused with natural herbs and spices and are then sprinkled onto strips of Latka paper which is a renewable resource .
What a unique package! Can’t wait to try these out!
So in summary
We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. The Merkaela Box is a beautifully curated assortment of amazing, all natural self care items. We are really enjoying seeing this box grow! The presentation is fantastic – we are loving the aesthetic, as always; and everything arrives perfectly. The quality is fabulous. Each of these products is made with natural ingredients and works wonderfully! As to curation – for a winter box this is outstanding. We love the body butter and all the nourishing restorative products that came in this box. The addition of both the incense and the bracelet also make really beautiful touches. We LOVE Merkaela!
