Simply Earth makes it easy to get started using essential oils to green your routine! I am kind of new to the world of essential oils but I like that you can use them for so many different things like beauty products and cleaning items. But getting started can be an expensive investment and I wasn’t really sure what to use or how to use it. Thankfully Simply Earth has me covered. Here’s what you can expect:
Every month, we’ll send 4 full size 100% pure essential oils + 1 -2 extra + bottles to make 5-6 recipes. So you’ll have everything you need. Each month is a new theme. Plus, you’ll get more ideas and recipes on how to use the oils inside your box outside of the recipes included.
They also donate 13% of all profits to help end human trafficking.

- Get $20 off future purchases signing up to a monthly subscription plan. Use coupon code HELLO.
This is my third box from Simply Earth. The first box came with a Big Bonus Box that had items like coconut oil and containers to use with future boxes. This box was the monthly “recipe box” with four oils, extras, and recipes to put them to use.
I received some pre-printed stickers to place on my new products after I make them. They are not scored so you will need to use your best scissoring skills.
Simply Earth sends recipe cards and while some of them have recipes continued on the backside, others have information regarding artisans they work with and companies that they support. 13% of Simply Earth’s profits will be donated each month and for September they are giving to Exodus Cry.
There was even a sneak peek of next month’s box.
I found info on the oils sent this month and the bonus items sent.
There were 6 recipes included in the box. The cards had an asterisk next to the items you may need to find in your kitchen or get from the store, the rest of the items should come from this shipment or from the Big Bonus Box.
Kids Essential Oil Jewelry Bracelet ($9.99) is handmade in Haiti by artisans at Mama Zwazo, who strives to help families rise above poverty. It has two clay beads on which you can drop essential oils and they will diffuse their scent into the air throughout the day. I also received a 5ml Euro-dropper bottle, although I’m not really sure what its purpose is in this box. I tried the bracelet on my plus-sized wrists and had no problem adjusting it to fit. I will pass this to my daughter and see what she thinks about it.
Himalayan Cedarwood, Cypress, Tangerine, and Bumps & Boo-boos Blend were the four essential oils sent this month. You can learn about them by clicking their links and they range in price from $7.99-$14.99. The value for the oils alone this month is around $41.96! You can find more recipes for each oil when you visit the site. Please remember to use oils safely and avoid use if pregnant or nursing until discussing safety with your health care provider.
Full ingredients are listed on the labels. My kids are older (college and high school aged) so while the sock bun sounds interesting and the boo boo blend might be nice for bug bites, I didn’t really put any of this month’s recipes to the test, except for one. I did diffuse the oils as shown on the Fall Fresh Diffuser Blend recipe card but until grandchildren arrive I have no plans to make play dough or scented beans. I used to teach preschool so these activities seem just right for that age group.
I really love the thought and care that Simply Earth puts into their boxes. This one in particular is good for families with young children, although the Boo Boo mix can be used for all ages. Even the bracelet could be worn by an adult. My daughter has long hair but we don’t really have any old socks around but when we get a mismatched one then I will ask if she would like to give it a try (I have short hair so it wouldn’t work for me). What I am most excited about is the variety of new oils I received and I can’t wait to learn all about them and put them to use in the diffuser or for other uses. I think the Simply Earth website has lots of useful info on the oils and appreciate that they offer additional recipes on their page.
