June House Box #5 – Unboxed


Welcome to June’s House Box! This one was so fun to put together, it has one of my all time favourite cleaning brands in it and some new exciting Canadian brands that I’m very excited about! I hope you loved receiving it and trying out all your new items, and I hope you’re inspired to try some new things in your home…

Green Beaver Toothpaste $5.99 for 75ml

You received one of 4 flavors of this all natural toothpaste; Spearmint, Peppermint, Cilantro Mint, or Sensitive (Peppermint). I love them all! And I love that they are free from all sorts of junk you can find in commercial brands. Did you know that some toothpastes contain MSG?? That’s reason enough for me to stick with the natural stuff. I have tried some other flouride free natural toothpastes, and this one is by far the best. Not only are the flavors delicious, the consistency is great and it leaves your teeth feeling smooth and clean and your breath nice and fresh. I won’t name names, but some of the natural pastes don’t really do any of those things….so really, what’s the point? Green Beaver is a Canadian company that makes many great natural body care products. The toothpastes are my favorite so far!

Norwex Spirisponge 2 for $10.49

I LOVE Norwex so much, when I first found out about it I became a consultant. Not so much to be an active rep, but for the discounts on product. I went to town and got pretty much the whole line…and have been so happy with it all ever since. They have some really amazing products. The bathroom descaler is hands down, the best I have ever used. It puts CLR to shame! I could go on and on, but I suggest if you like this sponge and you’d like to find out more about Norwex, get in touch with Leta. I found her at a farmers market a few years ago and she educated me on Norwex and got me hooked! Leta has been working for Norwex for years. She knows absolutely everything about the products and she won’t be dissapointed if you sign up as a consultant just for the discounts:)
Try using this sponge on your slowcooker or cast iron pans. I have managed to get rid of some serious stuck on food with this and love having it under my sink.

Soak Wash $32 for 375ml

Another Canadian Company! This laundry soap smells so good… and works so well. I have been dealing with some poopy pyjamas thanks to my 4 month old, and these little packets have suprisingly saved me from having to toss some really cute onsies! I don’t always love using smelly detergents, usually just for towels and sheets, but these scents are so subtle, I would use them on all my laundry. I love that you can use it on all your laundry as well, no need to keep several different bottles, this is good for delicates, towels, jeans and sweaters of all colors!

Fox Run Brands Garlic Peeler $5.99

I can’t stand the smell of garlic on my hands, and I hate when I get little bits stuck under my nails. This little magic carpet is so handy, and works so well at quickly shedding garlic cloves of its thin skin. I use ALOT of garlic in my kitchen so this going to get a ton of use out of me.  I’m inspired to do some Italian cooking this week!

Honey Candles Beeswax Tealights $14.26 for 6

Honey Candles are made from 100% pure beeswax in Kaslo, B.C. As I write this, I am burning these delicious smelling tealights and really enjoying them. I put honey in lots of things and just love the smell and taste of it, so I knew I would like the smell of these candles. I can always find a place for tealights in my home, it will be nice to add this wonderful aroma! You’ll get 4-5 hours out of these ones. Honey Candles is offering a discount to all House Box subscribers untill the end of August. Use the code: HOUSEBOX10 for 10% off orders over $75 when shopping on their website HERE


Neal’s Yard Geranium and Orange Hand Cream $10 for 50ml

Neal’s Yard is a UK based company with a boutique on 4th Street in  S.W. Calgary. They make a variety of different herb based remedies and they all smell amazing. This particular hand cream smells strongly of Geranium, which is lovely if you like that scent! The orange kind of gets lost in it, I think. They have a wide range of product from face and body care, aromatherapy, mom and baby, even tea! If you’d like to try more from Neal’s Yard, you can shop online on their website HERE
