Oh Mother Care Kits Review Winter 2016
Oh Mother Care Kits Review Winter 2016
Today I am reviewing my third Oh Mother Care Kits box, and so far I am a huge fan. It’s a Canadian subscription box, and it’s full of natural care products. What more can a girl ask for? Oh, and they also include recipe cards from one of my favourite vegan bloggers – Oh She Glows. It’s one of my favourite subscriptions to unbox.
Oh Mother Care Kits Details
If you aren’t familiar with Oh Mother Care Kits it is a new Canadian subscription box curated seasonally and packed with beautiful, natural care products designed to treat moms. Oh Mother Care Kits is a labour of love, from one mother to another. An offering of solidarity and maybe even a gentle nod of encouragement to help moms bring a little focus onto themselves.
Oh Mother Care Kits are intended to inspire a self-care practice that meets you where you’re at. They are made with mother’s in mind, but are perfect for anyone needing a little self-care and relaxation. I personally love the mixture of bath & body products, tea and treats.
Appleton Chocolates Company Truffle Trio
For most of our centres we start with a maple fondant, which is a moist mass of very fine sugar crystals. Our fondant is similar in texture to firm maple cream or maple butter. We add different fruits and berries to the fondant, and we roll them up (by hand) into centres. We dip these centres twice in European chocolate, and then we wrap them in coloured foil, package them up, and sell them to our customers. Sounds so simple!
Truffles are the perfect treat if you ask me. They are a chocolate treat I rarely purchase for myself. And all you need is one to satisfy a craving.
Dot & Lil Lavender & Bergamot Milk Bath
This best-selling milk bath has luxuriously moisturizing whole milk powder, with ground oatmeal and baking soda to soften the water and your skin. This super-rich and soothing formula turns the bath water milky, white and opaque and gives you a Cleopatra-like bathing experience. Leaves skin sweetly scented and soft.
Wow, this smells wonderful! I’m not really a fan of milk bath made with whole milk (for obvious reasons) but this will make an absolutely wonderful gift. I already have someone in mind.
Flora Hue Herbal Chest Rub
This 2oz herbal chest rub is an all natural, plant-based cream that has been slowly infused with herbs and flowers. The product is quickly absorbed into the skin and the healthful properties of the plants and oils begin to work immediately. After rubbing the cream into your skin, you can cup your hands over your mouth and inhale deeply. You’ll find the essential oil blend to be very soothing, especially if you are congested.
I love products like this, especially during the Winter months. I like to put it on my feet before bed and then put on a pair of cozy socks.
New Moon Tea Co. Elderberry Tonic
Elderberry Tonic is an Organic herbal blend of Elderberry’s, Cloves, Ginger, Cinnamon and Coconut Sugar. The ingredients are all high quality, dried herbs, fruit and spices in original form, no powders are used. Each Package comes with a large muslin bag for easy brewing and clean up and instructions on the back. Each package is a do-it-yourself elderberry syrup which makes 250ml. Elderberries have double the antioxidants than blueberry’s, are loaded with immune building vitamins and are safe for children, pregnancy and breastfeeding moms.
I have received New Moon Tea Co. tea a few times now, and I have to say, I LOVE their products. You really have to check out their website. They have some really great flavours, and the cutest cup cozies.
Rustik Soap Co. Cocoa Mint All Natural Body Butter
Rustik’s rich all natural body butters will leave your skin nourished, relieved, and glowing. We use the best butters and oils, slow melt them, add all natural essential oils, and whip them to perfection. With five different varieties, you can wear your favourite scent, or go unscented if you wish.
Oh my goodness, this smells just like chocolate chip mint ice-cream…..so good! I haven’t tested it out yet. I kind of want to save it. But, I have a feeling I am going to love it. How can I not!
The Willow’s Bark Wildcrafted Skincare Neroli & Marigold Herbal Facial Steam
Just fill a bowl with boiling water and drop a steamer in. Place a towel over your head and lean over the bowl. Now breathe in. Moist heat hydrates the skin, boosts circulation, and opens pores. Each steamer contains medicinal herbs to repair, nourish, & rebalance skin, as well as reduce inflammation by cleansing pores.
Has anyone else ever used a facial steam like this before? I am so intrigued by it. I really need to set aside some “me time” and test this out. It’s made with chamomile, lemon, and orange……just to name a few.
The Willow’s Bark Wildcrafted Skincare Flora Repair Lip Balm
Flora Repair Lip Balm is an opulent blend of plant extracts and rich oils to immediately enhance the suppleness and softness of lips while adding a layer of protection from the elements. FLORA also penetrates the top layer of skin to repair and nourish from the inside by encouraging the growth of new, healthy skincells.
I like that this claims to encourage growth of new, healthy skin cells. It makes it sound like an intensive repair lip balm, and that is exactly what I need during the Winter months.
Recipe Cards & Mantra Cards
I mentioned this above, but the recipes cards are probably my favourite part of the box. It’s such a simple item, but so exciting at the same time. I absolutely LOVE Oh She Glows, and I love all of her recipes.
Oh Mother Care Kits Review Winter 2016 – Final Thoughts
Oh Mother Care Kits make me happy. They are a breath of fresh air. I love the natural self-care products, I love that they focus on Canadian companies, and I love that we get treats! They really do an amazing job putting this box together. Their packaging, logo, and marketing materials are gorgeous. They really set the tone for the box. Withe the price being $79.95 per box, I probably wouldn’t classify it as a value box, it’s more of a discovery box and a way to treat yourself. My favourite item would still be the NB Naturals Orange Spice Aromatherapy Room & Linen Spray from the Fall box, I use it a few times per week. I would LOVE to see more products from that company in future boxes.
