Unboxing November 2015 Herbal Bliss Co

I went thru several eco-friendly and organic subs to find a couple that I really love!  Herbal Bliss is one of them 🙂  I really love this subscription and I hope more people “discover” them, as they keep getting better and better.    What is Herbal Bliss Co?

Herbal Bliss enjoys reaching out to the diverse herbal suppliers throughout the USA to bring you five unique samples each month. Our sample categories are Aromatherapy, Blissful Body, Culinary, Well Being and a Spotlight product. Each of our suppliers thoughtfully grows, harvest, and packages to bring you delightful experiences into your home. Herbal Bliss is thrilled to introduce you to a multi-faceted experience each month.

  • Passionate About Small Batches ~ Our suppliers are often growing their herbs, creating their recipes, and building their shop fronts on their family farm. You are receiving special, handcrafted gifts from nature without bias to one supplier over another.
  • Discover Herbs ~ Herbal products are one of the fastest growing consumer products. Why is that? People are wary of chemical, laboratory products that have who knows what effect on our body systems. We want to put natural products in our bodies and on our skin & hair. We want to read a label and not only be able to pronounce the ingredients, but know what they are
  • Education ~ Herbs can be intimidating. Herb shops are usually very helpful, but sometimes you may be afraid to ask questions because other customers seem so well informed. Most people know that you should not ingest herbs for ailments without speaking to your doctor first, but there are many other questions about the use of herbs. Herbs are from the earth and have uses beyond what you think of everyday and we are here to help introduce those uses and the makers of these gifts. We bring education for each category.  (source)

Herbal Bliss offers (per box) a month-to-month sub at $25.00, 3 month sub at $22.00, 6 month sub at $20.00 and a yearly sub at $18.00 per box.

Ginger Chi Chi Boost Energy Stick Roll On Energy Boost  I was introduced to Ginger Chi with my Luxe Pineapple Renew box and I love their products.  This is part of their aromatherapy line.  This scent is very hanbang ~ very Asian herbal and is similar to traditional Chinese medicine.    Very sharp, it does wake you up!   According to Ginger Chi, it will help give you a boost of both physical and mental energy.  You just roll this over your pulse points or the back of your neck and massage in.  I love hanbang scents, so I really am into this.  However, this scent may not be for everyone, but if you are into traditional Chinese medicine, you will enjoy this very much.  Ginger Chi is having a Black Friday weekend special ~ use promo code THANKU30 for 30% off ~ expires 11/30/2015 Full Size 3.5 oz RV $16.00

Fredericksburg Farms Hen Scratch Poultry Rub  Before I even read the description card, I saw this item and thought, just in time for Thanksgiving! ahaha  I love a good seasoning rub and this one is made of some nice ingredients that I normally would not think to put on a chicken ~ brown sugar, red pepper, lemon peel, along with the traditional ingredients of paprika, onion and garlic   Very interested in using this!  It  sounds very yummy and spicy.  1 oz RV $3.29

Description:  Pioneer settlers in the Texas Hill Country considered two things to be top priority when setting up a homestead. First, you needed a good milk cow to provide milk and butter for the family. Second, you needed a good flock of chickens. The purpose of the chickens were two-fold. First, they provided meat and, second, on a daily basis they provided eggs for eating and baking. Well, that tradition is still alive and well in Fredericksburg today. Even in the middle of town, you’ll see homes that have a flock of chickens in the side yard! Nothing beats the taste of fresh “yard” eggs. And, nothing beats the taste of a young bird grilled over an open fire or oven-roasted to perfection. Fredericksburg Farms Hen Scratch Poultry Rub enhances the flavor of chicken, dove, quail or turkey with a combination of paprika, onion, garlic, lemon peel, a hint of brown sugar and red pepper.

Ingredients: salt, brown sugar (sugar, cane syrup), spces, dehydrated garlic, paprika, chili pepper, dehydrated lemon peel, red pepper, onion powder
