I just took a trip to India, and it didn't cost me a thing!
OK I confess I didn't go to India, but I sure came super close when a box full of exotic arrived at my door and I opened it's treasures.
I am a huge fan of subscription box services and 'of-the-month' type clubs, they give you a taste of everything under the sun and in my opinion are always great gifts for those hard to shop for folks on my gift list.
Escape Monthly is a subscription box service that is perfect for all travel enthusiasts and anyone with a lust for life who wants to experience something different, new and off the beaten path.
What did my 'Passport to India' Escape Box Include?:
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Korma Simmer Sauce by Saffron Road Food - A rich and flavorful sauce with an Indo-Pakistani Heritage that contains an aromatic mixture of cardamom, turmeric (which you know is good for your heart right?), and other spices in a creamy coconut milk and yogurt base. It is all natural, Certified Halal and NON-GMO (genetically modified) Verified! You can add almost anything to it, not just chicken, you can add your turkey, lamb, pork or even shrimp if you prefer seafood instead!
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Moon Travel Guides: Taj Mahal, Delhi & Jaipur - A great travel guide that gives ideas on how to get there, how long it will take, where to stop along the way, excursion suggestions including Rajasthan, the Himalayas or even nearby wildlife preserves. Where to find authentic Cultural Experiences from Elephant Processions to spiritual retreats. (Um, Eat, Pray, Love Moments? YES PLEASE!)
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Banyan Botanicals Ayurvedic Oils Organic Healthy Hair Oil - Utilizing Bhringaraj known as the 'ruler of hair' it rejuvenates the hair and scalp assisted by the cooling and cleansing effects of Amalaki and Brahmi (Goto Kola). The Certified Organic Herbs together are used to infuse the oil with qualities known to Ayurveda to strengthen and protect the hair. It is meant to be used on a weekly basis, apply on and massage scalp for 30 minutes as a pre-treatment BEFORE you use your shampoo.
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Fine Ayurvedic Soap in Cedar Eucalyptus - With Earthy Scents of Cedar, Eucalptus and patchouli this invigorating soap is going to give you a refreshing start to the day it contains Saponfied oils of Olive, Coconut, Palm and Essential Oils of Himalayan Cedarwood, Eucalyptus, Patchouli and Vitamin E.
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Pure Indian Foods Certified Organic Grassfed Ghee Made from Non-Homogenized Milk - Ghee is a healthy, shelf-stable alternative to plain butter or other cooking oils. Indian Ghee is used as an ingredient in traditional dishes as an ideal fat for frying and even used in Ayurvedic Medicine. This Gluten Free Dairy Product is also known as Indian Clarified Butter, Seafood Butter, Drawn Butter, Ghee Butter or Anhydrous Milk Fat, it has a high smoke point which makes it an excellent choice for frying or sauteing and can be stored without refrigeration for months. The next time I make a Whole Lobster or Some Snow Crab, I am using the Ghee as the Seafood Butter that's for sure!
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Nemat International Indian Fragrances: A small size bottle of the Amber Fragrance was included as well as vial size of the Vanilla Musk which I really loved BOTH of them!
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - A fun extra in the box were the Gouri Puja Designer Bindi
It's a nice taste of India, but now that I heard about the Escape Monthly India Luxe Box, I think that box would have been WAY more ME, with Incense Burners, Pashmina's and other goodies, that one is definitely more my speed. I'm a Luxe Lover!
I love the sauces that were included in this box as I'm a huge curry fanatic and as I have never tried Korma Sauce before that one was also fun to use with the Ghee and prepare something different. Even our palates get bored when we eat the same things all the time, so this was a fun way to shake things up at dinner time as well.
Butterflies, a little birdie told us that the next Escape Subscription box is going to come from the home of my ancestors. Can you guess where? (Let's see who gets this one right first!)
Bring the exotic into your home, be it bath products, beauty products, kitchen ingredients, cool decor or accent pieces let these boxes that curate a super fun destination for you, bring you a taste of something fun and new!
