Thank you for ordering our first Culture Box:
It was a no brainer dedicating the magical month of October to Mexico. Being in Los Angeles, POC is influenced by Mexican culture on the daily so it was hard to settle on only 5 items. Our hope is that this box brings you warmth and joy surrounding your Día de Los Muertos. This year's festivities may be more intimate than we'd like so, we made sure to throw in extra Mexican treats that you can indulge in with your fr-amily.
*10% of proceeds will be put toward POC's micro loan fund

(1) The Four Agreements (soft cover)
In the Four Agreements, Mexican author, shamanic teacher and healer Don Miguel Ruiz exposes self-limiting beliefs and presents a simple yet effective code of personal conduct learned from his Toltec ancestors. This book is THE TRUTH. 1. Be impeccable with your word. 2. Don't take anything personally. 3. Don't make assumptions. 4. Always do your best. "It's the how and why one should do these things that make The Four Agreements worth reading and remembering." --P. Randall Cohan
(1) Abuelita Hot Cocoa
If you know, you KNOW. If you don't, get ready for this hot cocoa to rock your world. Abuelita is a household staple because it's as rich as Mexican Culture and really tastes like your grandma made it. Best part is that you can share the cylinder with your fr-amily.
(4) Copal Incense + POC Matches
Fine Copal Incense. Copal is a resin that is produced from plant sap usually from the genus Copaifera. Copal or Copalite are organic resins that aren’t old enough to have hardened and fossilized enough to become Amber.
Dating Copal is almost impossible, and it typically ranges from several hundred to several thousand, and even thought to be up to a million years old. Copal ranges in color from pale yellow, orange, red and white.
Copal links to the crown chakra, allowing awareness in the void of pure being and no mind during deep meditations. The perfect aroma to fill the air while honoring your loved ones who have passed.
We threw in an extra incense stick because these babies smell too good!
These handmade mugs are the perfect size for your alter, desk or even book shelf! We believe that things made by hand carry a higher frequency than things that are mass produced. This Jarrito comes from the colorful, affordable, and thoughtful shop Artesenias Oaxacenas at Mercado La Paloma in South LA. Be sure to check them out for more Mexican artisan crafts.
(1) Tamarindo Candies
We're pretty sure that the saying "sugar, spice, and everything nice" was written about Mexican Tamarindo candy! Brb going to taste test everything for you guys again ;)
We included enough candy to share and satisfy your sweet tooth but not too to avoid belly pain.
