So last month’s Yogi Surprise Jewelry Box was just awful for me ~ read here ~ and I am hoping this month will be better. I don’t have high hopes for it as I truly disliked the spoiler for this month, but there is still another jewelry item plus the treat! They usually give one spoiler for the jewelry box, but the other 2 items are a mystery 🙂 What is Yogi Surprise?
Yogi Surprise Jewelry Box
- 2 handmade pieces + 1 organic treat
- Handcrafted in Bali. Fair Trade
- $65+ retail value in every box
- $24.95/month + free shipping
The Jewelry box will contain two handcrafted yoga inspired jewelry pieces, that are fair trade, sustainably harvested materials, nickle-free, lead-free and cadmium free. These are made in Bali, Indonesia and 10% of all proceeds will be given to education the Balinese families to make these beautiful pieces. It also contains an organic chocolate treat.
it doesn’t come with the pink crinkle paper ~ I use that to pad the box for display purposes
This month’s theme is “Sun Salutation” The inner fire that energizes our hearts is what establishes our rhythm in life. When we are resistant to our true desires, our hearts grow weaker and require us to reignite the fire so we can open ourselves up to experiencing more joy and abundance. This month, the jewelry we are offering will help you work with your heart to clear the way for greater understanding in your life while eliminating any sensations of feeling trapped in certain situations. Let your genuine fascination for life’s wonders inspire and encourage you to pursue what’s true to you
Sun Salutation Cork Bottle Necklace So, this was the spoiler. I am not a fan ~ I like bottle jewelry, but the bottle here is ugly and totally uninspired. The stones are pink aventurine, which look more peach and this is on a long antique brass tone chain. This also has a really nice sun charm in brass. I think I am going to remove the cork bottle and add other charms to this chain, as I do like the chain and sun pendant. This is an 28 inch necklace, with the cork bottle adding an additional 1.5 inches with the drop. RV $75.00 (ahahahaha)
Pink Aventurine ~ Higher-Heart Chakra ~ calming, helps with positive well-being, understanding alternative paths, removes feelings of being trapped. It helps marry creative inspiration with practicality. Aids in balancing our body with energy flow
Sandalwood Chakra Stone Bracelet Now this is more like it! This is what I expect from Yogi Surprise Jewelry! I love this ~ it is made with medicinal sandalwood beads ~ which I can smell and it is beautifully scented ~ and 7 round stone beads, representing the 7 chakras ~ which are the 7 main energy centers in our body. The stones will help target each chakra to help balance and recharge, allowing for a balanced flow of energy resulting in happiness, well being, clarity, positivity.
- Red Jasper = Root Chakra
- Carnelian = Sacral Chakra
- Citrine = Solar Plexus Chakra
- Rose Quartz = Heart Chakra
- Aquamarine = Throat Chakra
- Lapis Lazuli = Third Eye Chakra
- Amethyst = Crown Chakra
If you want to learn more about chakras, a good resource is Chakra Anatomy. This time, the bracelet fits fantastic on my wrist! This bracelet goes beautifully with the “Balance” Sandalwood, Pearl and Amazonite Mala I received in my May Yogi Surprise Jewelry Box. RV $32.00
Sandalwood For over 4,000 years, sandalwood has been used to help calm and clear the mind of negativity. It helps bring deep states of relaxation and relaxes the heart and throat chakras. It helps aid in mental clarity and opening the Third Eye, awaking intelligence and lifting depression.
Paleo Eats Coconut-Cacao Bar I always look forward to the chocolate treats in my box, and this one contains two of my favorite sweet treats ~ coconut and chocolate. This is a gluten and dairy free energy bar and it does look a little sad out of the wrapper. Since I do not have issues with dairy, I decided to spruce it up a bit ~ I heated this bar in the microwave for 30 seconds and then put a bit of whipped cream on top.
You can see that the chocolate melted a bit, like one of those lava fudge cakes ~ this was delicious served this way! Even if you can’t have whipped cream, try heating it up ~ it really enhances the coconut and chocolate flavors. Very yummy! I didn’t feel too guilty adding the whipped cream on top, because this is NOT a low calorie or low fat bar to begin with! RV $4.00
Description: Cacao. It’s become a buzzword in the health world these days, and for good reason—it’s a delicious superfood packed with vitamins and essential minerals. Good thing our Coconut-Cacao Paleo Eats Bar is loaded with organic raw cacao powder, as well as dairy-free dark chocolate chips, organic cocoa butter, and organic flaxseed. All of these wholesome Paleo ingredients help make this Paleo Eats Bar the richest, smoothest, most satisfying (and sustaining!) Paleo treat in the energy bar aisle, not to mention one of our personal favorites. Gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, legume-free, and wheat-free, our Coconut-Cacao Paleo Eats Bar is anything but flavor-free.
Ingredients: Organic Coconut, Organic Almonds, Raw Honey, Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, Chocolate Chips (70% Chocolate, Organic Cane Sugar, Organic Chocolate Liquor [Non-Alcoholic], Non-Dairy Organic Cocoa Butter & Organic Vanilla), Organic Dates, Organic Sunflower Seeds (Raw, Shelled), Organic Raw Cacao Powder, Milled Organic Flax Seed, Organic Maple Syrup, Organic Vanilla Extract, Pure Almond Extract and Himalayan Pink Sea Salt.
So, let’s get the bad stuff out of the way first ~ the necklace is a dud for me and there is no way that the RV comes close to $75.00. However, the bracelet is a winner and I love it, along with the Paleo Eats treat. I paid $25.00 for this box and received a RV of $111.00. Yeah, no.. haha But I love the bracelet and the treat, so I feel it is worth it and part of the proceeds from this box will go back to the local artisans that made these items and help educate their community.

Jewelry Box: Amazonite & Hemp Courage Bracelet
We’ve got a new favorite! A handcrafted, hemp cord bracelet that beautifully showcases the ‘Stone of Courage’, Amazonite. This legendary stone is known to increase self-esteem, promote healing and enhance the ability to communicate more effectively. Amazonite has even been said to block geopathic stress and absorb electromagnetic pollution from cell phones, microwaves, etc.
Summer Jewelry Box: Yogi Surprise is also curating a special Summer box and it has a bracelet very similar to our August spoiler. It is also looks like we are getting a beaded necklace with a huge charm! I did purchase the Summer box as well and will unbox it when I received it. It is a $185.00 RV and it is selling for $29.99
