Description: Inside this package, our unique blend of Italian herbs create a pizza tasting cracker that goes great with dips, spreads, salads and soups. Foods Alive is a family owned company dedicated to crafting healthy foods, because just like you, we are deeply about the food our family eats. So, you’ll only find the highest quality certified organic ingredients in the foods we make.
Our Crackers come to life when we soak raw flax seeds in filtered water to begin the germination (or sprouting) process. This increases nutritional value, bio-availability and makes them easier to chew and digest. Then, we gently dehydrate our crackers overnight at a very low temperature. Our delicate process preserves the vital living enzymes and essential nutrients, while at the same time, creating a crispy, crunch, savory snack. This attention to detail, allows us to craft all of our products with the highest quality of flavor, freshness and essential nutrition.
Ingredients: Golden flaxseed*, tomato powder*, minced onion*, Himalayan pink salt, granulated garlic*, parsley*, basil*, marjoram*, oregano*, rosemary*, thyme*, sage*.

This roll on oil perfume is vegan, cruelty free and made in the USA and they create several Charka perfumes. This Tranquility mini will help center your mind and it smells like lavender and rosewood.

Mat (Motivational Affirmation Tags) Intentions 3-Pack This is probably the dud in the box for me. Anytime I see the word affirmation, I think of Stuart Smalley
I receive three affirmation tags ~ peace, love and gratitude ~ and they have a velcro backing. There is also a velcro fastener with a sticky back, so you can attach them to your yoga mat or any smooth surface ~ I might just put this on my laptop, just to annoy me! haha RV $10.50 Promo Code: Use YOGIS10 at Mat Intentions and save 10% off your purchase
Description: MAT Intentions™ are interchangeable words selected as daily intentions. MAT is a play on words and stands for Motivational Affirmation Tags. The tags are not only meant to be used by yogis on their mats, but for anyone to place onto most smooth surfaces to visually inspire and motivate. 100% woven for durability and high quality. Soft, to prevent injury when used for yoga practice. Able to withstand hot yoga temperatures. Easy to spot clean with soap and water and dries quickly. Tags and packaging are eco friendly: tags are long lasting and reusable, the packaging is a reusable carry along pouch, and the label and insert is made with recycled material. Tag edges may vary slightly due to the hand making process
The Chakra Bible by Patrica Mercier I love getting books in my boxes! I am still a bookworm and I like keeping a stack of books near my bed, in case I want some reading material. The description of this book is as such:
Chakras are the centers of energy in our body that profoundly affect our well-being. Through this exquisitely designed volume, newcomers to this alternative form of spirituality can understand every aspect of chakra power. In addition to an illuminating introduction, a detailed guide covers each chakra, with their associated colors, Indian deity, healing stone, and emotional and physical actions. One by one, go through the base, sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, brow, and crown chakras, as well as some newly discovered ones and chakras from different traditions. There’s also invaluable information on connecting chakras with aura reading and healing, and yoga exercises and meditations to strengthen each chakra.
This is color coded on the edges of the book and has 11 chapters ~ a chapter for each chakra, the “new” chakras, how chakras are used in other traditions and healing, as well as a glossary.
Each chapter has yoga positions, aromatherapy and other subjects for that chakra. This is a really interesting book and it is going to provide me with hours of reading as it has almost 400 pages of actual reading material. RV $14.99
Bonus Item: Yogi Surprise Yoga Sequence Series Card: Summer Solstice: The Summer Solstice is a doorway into the second half of the year and we Salute The Sun during its longest days through this simple variation of the classic Surya Namaskar, Sun Salutation, igniting a fire for our dreams and visions. Yogi Surprise always has a sequence card in every lifestyle box with poses and positions that reflect the theme of the box.
Outside of the Stuart Smalley affirmations, I really enjoyed this month’s box ~ the Chakra perfume and reference book are my favorites in here. I love the bright and cheerful headband and look forward to planting my seeds ~ I have some planters that needs something in them other than dirt!
