Étoile Box - March 2021

The theme for March is Earth Angel and everything in the box is about loving the earth or being eco-friendly. The box comes with a card that details all of the included products and it includes a flower tea recipe on the back for this month.

First out of the box is the Cote D'Azur Reusable Market Tote from Earth & Daughter in Ocean.

I love these catch-all crochet bags and have worn my old one to pieces. They're handy to use as produce bags in the grocery store (to keep from bringing home all of those plastic bags) or at a Farmer's Market. I've used mine as a beach bag and an overnight bag, too. Funnily enough, I just ordered one in another subscription box, so now I'll have 2! 😂

"Côte d'Azur Reusable market tote bags will fit some bundles of veggies or fruits from the farmers market. Stylish & sturdy enough to carry nearly everything you need on your next getaway: a book, some snacks, and a small beach towel. Also perfect for a quick trip to the store!

100% cotton string with non-toxic dyes (or unbleached white). GOTS-certified cotton ensures safe working conditions, living wages, and fair trade practices."

Next out is a bundle of Flowering Herbs and Bamboo Tongs from The Qi and a Honey Stick from The Bee Box.

I first tried lotus flower tea on a trip to China years ago and it was a wonderful experience. When the dried flower is steeped in hot water, it "blooms". In this bundle I received 2 flowers (Shangri La Rose & Royal Chrysanthemum), a pair of bamboo tongs, and a straw of honey. Can't wait to give them a try!

"Shangri-La Rose tea promotes radiant skin & hair. Our Shangri-La Rose has a subtle rosy flavor with slightly tangy, fruity notes, and a delicate fragrance."

"Royal Chrysanthemum tea promotes immunity and more. Our organic Royal  Chrysanthemum has a delicate fragrance and a mildly sweet, herbal flavor with notes of honey in the finish."

"Use the tong to keep the flower submerged in the hot water and swirl it around for visual splendor.  The perfect tool to complete your daily flower sipping rituals and more."

"Enjoy the sweet taste of honey on-the-go with our easy-to-pack honey sticks! Need to sweeten up your coffee but want to avoid processed sugar? Check. Want a mid-afternoon pick me up? Check. Just love the taste of honey? Check!"

Next out is a From Earth To Earth Bamboo Toothbrush in Blue Sky.

Toothbrushes are one area where I have not gone with an eco-friendly option yet. I know I should but I need to use an electric toothbrush. I wish they made bamboo refills for those! This would be the next best thing. Did you know you can compost your bamboo toothbrushes (after removing the nylon bristles)? Cool!

"Smooth natural Bamboo toothbrushes, available in various colors and with firm, medium, or soft recyclable bristles. All our bamboo toothbrushes are biodegradable, home compostable, and have recyclable bristles made from 63% plant-based materials."

Next out is a Stone Mala Bracelet from Santore Company Jewelry in Amazonite.

This is a very pretty bracelet with a surprising heft to it. The stones are multicolored Amazonite with a brass accent on an elastic strand.

"Amazonite is a mint green to aqua green stone said to be of truth, honor, communication, integrity, hope, and trust. It is said to enhance intuition, creativity, intellect, and psychic ability. Amazonite is often associated with the throat chakra, and as such, said to be beneficial to communication. This product is made from natural stone."


Next out is a Rose Quartz Stone.

While I don't believe in the power of stones and crystals, I can appreciate the natural beauty of them. We actually have a nice collection thanks to a family friend who is into geology and stones and started taking my son to "the Rock show" in Memphis when he was about 10. 😂

"Rose Quartz is the stone of universal love. It purifies and opens the heart at all levels to promote love, self-love, friendship, deep inner healing, and feelings of peace."

Next out is a MOA The Green Balm Daily Cleansing Ritual set.

I'm an old-school OCM (oil cleansing method) devotee, (like back when you had to mix your own because you couldn't buy oil cleansers anywhere 😂), so I'm fully on board with The Green Balm.  There are quite a few reasons to use the OCM for your face, which a lot of people are discovering now that there are so many commercial options available. 

When you stop stripping your skin's natural oils, oil production slows down, which can help those with "oily" skin (that may not even be naturally oily!) If you have dry skin, it will feel much more comfortable. It's not oily-feeling either, BTW! I'm currently using the Volition Vanishing Oil Cleanser (now discontinued 😭).

This one is a solid that transforms into a cleansing oil (like the Farmacy Green Clean) and the set comes with a soft bamboo face cloth and directions straight from the OCM (hot cloth method). Cute!

"An organic, multi-purpose calming balm and some might say it’s a miracle! The Green Balm combines MOA’s hero herb yarrow (Achillea millefolium), used for millennia to protect, heal and repair, along with tea tree oil, nature’s powerful antiseptic. The Green Balm is safe to use around the eye area and removes caked-on makeup.

Bamboo fiber is naturally anti-bacterial and apart from being luxuriously soft, it’s also one of the most eco materials on the planet. Hot cloth cleansing doesn't strip the skin of its natural oils, which can lead to breakouts, it balances and nourishes the skin. Ideal for oily, acne skin, as well as dry and sensitive skin types."

I always love getting the Étoile box. It's a great mix of fashion, beauty, home items, and a delish treat. Their themes go all-out and this month was no exception. I enjoyed this box and received some useful and pretty eco-friendly items to explore.

This is March's box and these boxes tend to sell out pretty quickly, so grab one now if you want one. Don't forget to use the discount code below!
