Here’s the Box Breakdown
Our first glimpse inside the Out of the Woods Apothecary Box
Everything has a very “wholesome” and “general store” feel to it
Everything that we received in the Out of the Woods Box.
The January theme included items that will help you get through cold and flu season!
With four kids… we feel this!
So what is all this stuff?
Our box insert. There’s detailed information about each of the products in the January Box.
If you watched the unboxing you’ll know we spilled this! Yikes!
This Goldenrod Salve can be used like you would Neosporin. It helps with cuts, scrapes, and burns. We’re actually a little curious if you could use something like this on diaper rash?
This has a really beautiful color and a really light Earthy scent that I’m fond of as well. I love that you can see parts of the plant in it!
Rosehips & Hibiscus Tea
Both Rosehips and Hibiscus are high in Vitamin C which is known to stave off colds but Hibiscus also has bioflavonoids that reduce blood pressure and the buildup of plaque in the arteries
There are 10 tea bags included in the package
The color is beautiful, it’s one of the best things about Hibiscus tea! The flavor is lightly tart which is common with Hibiscus but the Rosehips do a beautiful job of evening out the flavor. This is a really nice tea!
This has tons of uses. It’s primarily a digestive aid and helps with cramping, nausea, and gas. But it’s also great for headache relief. Instructions are simple, just put 1-3 drops on your tongue and rub against the roof of your mouth
While we had heard of the word “tincture” we didn’t know exactly what that meant. A tincture simply means the medicine has been added to an alcohol solution. The Out of the Woods Box’s Tinctures use 80 proof Vodka. And yes, you totally get that warm feeling in your belly!
Out of the Woods Room Spray
LOVE this! It’s made with Scotch Pine and Cedar Essential Oils so the scent is not the typical “artificial” woodsy scent but a realistic outdoors smell. It’s awesome! If it’s too cold to go for a walk, bring the walk indoors!
Our favorite thing in this box! They had us at cold preventative! This has Elderberrys (which are also high in Vitamin C), Organic Honey, Cloves and Allspice. Taking a tablespoon each day will ward off a cold but you can also take 1-2 tablespoons 4 times daily when you feel a cold coming on
We were excited to try this, although,not quite sure what to expect. The flavor is a little bit like apple butter because of the cloves and allspice. The Elderberry lends a bit of a tart flavor as well. It’s actually really good!
We’ll let you know if we get a cold!
So in summary
We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. The Out of the Woods Apothecary Box is not only unique, it also makes us feel good about the way that we’re living. It’s providing alternatives and options that are not readily available in most areas but also more wholesome than traditional over the counter remedies.
We were really impressed with the presentation. The little glass bottles and labeling gave this such a country store kind of feeling. The quality is impressive as well. We also LOVE the curation. It’s a great array of items but the theme is relevant and they stick to it! Overall, we think this is a fabulous new box, looking forward to seeing what themes they come up with in the future! This box is definitely for you if you are curious about natural remedies and are trying to purchase more all natural products
As far as box economy The Out of the Woods Apothecary Box is $44.95 and for that we received $45.50 in products. We think with these great products it’s a good deal!
