2019 Spring Mantra Box Unveiling

We can finally unveil everything we put in this quarter’s Mantra Box®, and it was one of my favorites yet! Between the CBD oil, the yummy snacks, and the personal mister, there were so many goodies to choose from. The best part of the unveiling, at least for me, is being able to see the faces of those who created the products we chose for this box. When you shop small, you’re helping these people out!!

This quarter’s box is sold out, but you can now pre-order the Summer Mantra Box®, which will ship out at the end of August, and don’t forget to follow on Insta!

JiMMYBAR!

JiMMYBAR!

Company: JiMMYBAR!

Founder: Jim Simon

Why the company was started: JiMMYBAR! was born out of total frustration with the bar choices on the market today. Healthy bars tasted like sawdust and good tasting bars used junk ingredients, yet marketed themselves as healthy. Given my entrepreneurial spirit, I asked my chef sister to help me create a bar that tasted great and had clean ingredients.. Heck, it was my 8 year old niece, Jackie, who named the company…although she wanted the name to be the Uncle Dummy Bar.

Our Misters are versatile & fun with endless uses, helping to keep you comfortable & hydrated when you’re active outdoors; relaxing by the pool, or perfecting your downward-dog.

What the company does to give back: All of our products are eco-friendly alternatives to help keep you cool in the heat! They are entirely human-powered, so don’t require the purchase (or disposal of) batteries! Our company has a wellness focus and mission, and offers substantial health benefits in addition to just being ‘cool’! 😉 Our patented design’s atomization & flash evaporation of H2O results in a significant 30°F reduction of the surrounding air temperature! We are currently working on getting the word out on how our products can help those with heat-regulating related health conditions, such as individuals with Multiple Sclerosis; Ectodermal Dysplasia; Paraplegia, Dysautonomia etc. We have also donated thousands of units to troops overseas.
