Herb Stop is a locally owned small business out of Pine, Arizona that offers the AromaBox, a monthly essential oils subscription box. Master Herbalists Leilah Breitler and Natalie Hajdu curate their oils to a theme and all of their essential oils are 100% pure, although some of the more precious oils are thinned with jojoba oil.
AromaBox is $24.95 a month and that includes shipping, plus you can choose to receive this box once a quarter. You will receive 4 bottles of oils – 3 single essential oils (1/6 oz or 1/3 oz each) and 1 roll-on essential oil blend ready for use. Along with your oils, you will receive a flyer with details on each oil, 3 tips on using each oil, and safety information.
The Herb Stop insists that all ingredients must come from reliable and ethical sources. Leilah and Natalie believe that quality and high standards are essential to create life-enhancing herbal products that are unmatched.
FYI – AromaBox is always available through the end of the month, plus you can purchase previous boxes on their website!
DEAL: Save 15% on your first box with coupon code HELLO15.
Everything arrived safely!
There were a couple of business cards included. On the back of one of the cards there was even a place to write notes on your new scents.
The theme for September’s box was The Organizer.
The flyer opened up to give more info on each oil. Each oil is described and then it gives you an aromatherapy tip, a tip from Leilah (a Master Herbalist), a tip from Natalie (also a Master Herbalist), and any safety precautions. There is a nice color picture of each herb and the details are easy enough for the newest essential oil enthusiast to understand. I also own an essential oil book that I can refer to but you can always find further uses on Google or Pinterest.
SAFETY NOTE: If you have any health concerns or are pregnant or nursing I would urge you to check with your doctor before using essential oils. The Herb Stop does not endorse the use of essential oils for internal use, unless under the supervision of a qualified practitioner skilled in oral administration of essential oils.
The back of the pamphlet gave info on the featured blend for this month and a recipe for a spray. It also had a coupon code for their shop.
How can you put your new oils to use? “Essential oils can be added to carrier oils, lotions, salves, soaps, massage oils, bath salts, or used in an aromatherapy diffuser. The options are endless!”
Herb Stop Eucalyptus Essential Oil ($2.67) We’re moving into that time of year where colds and flu start to flourish. Eucalyptus may help open sinuses and bronchi to help you breathe more easily. You could even place a drop or two on your pillow before bed to alleviate congestion.
Each herb clearly states where it is from, what part of the plant is used, and if it is mixed with a carrier oil.
Herb Stop Oregano Essential Oil ($8.70) smells just like the dried herb I commonly use in cooking! It can be added to a massage oil to relieve achy joints.
Herb Stop Lemongrass Essential Oil ($2.40) Lemongrass to me smells like furniture polish! It is bright and bracing and may help repel bugs or increase circulation when combined with a carrier oil.
All of the oils come with euro droppers to keep them from spilling out and making a mess.
Herb Stop The Organizer Aromatherapy Roll-On ($18.95) I like that The Herb Stop sends a ready to roll scent in each box! This one is supposed to help open the mind and release creativity.
It smells a little like natural bug repellent thanks to the lemon balm and I think it’s the vertiver that always smells like Band-Aids on my skin! I guess the dry down would be better described as “earthy”.
I think this is a good unisex scent.
I love it when my monthly box of essential oils from The Herb Stop shows up! I have enjoyed leaning about essential oils thanks to AromaBox and I appreciate that they provide tips and a ready made roll-on. I often try new “recipes” in my diffuser to see which combo I like best and like having an assortment of oils ready to mix with carrier oils to provide relief for aches and pains.
