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!
The theme for October’s box was The Balancer. I think the monthly themes have been based on astrological signs and this was my month, I’m a Libra and we strive to keep things even!
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 Rosemary Essential Oil ($3.28) The name of the oil is clearly listed on each bottle. Rosemary has a strong scent that reminds me of eucalyptus and is beneficial in helping unclog lungs or may be used as a toner for skin.
The part of the plant used and its origin is also listed.
The bottle also mentions if the essential oil is pure or mixed with a carrier oil.
The oils have a euro dropper lid.
Herb Stop Spearmint Essential Oil ($3.66) Ahh, this is a breath of fresh air to my nose! I like the idea included in the newsletter – just mix with sugar and a carrier oil and rub on lips to exfoliate and soften.
Herb Stop Lemon Essential Oil ($3.27) Lemon is a classic, in fact, all of the scents this month were must-haves. Lemon can be used for cleaning and will leave behind a fresh, clean smell. Pinterest is a great place to look for recipes using any of the essential oils, but please use them responsibly.
Herb Stop Aromatherapy Roll-On The Balancer ($16.95) The roller blends are ready to go, no mixing required but I do give them a good shake before using. These are exlcusive to subscribers but you can find similar blends on the Herb Stop’s website.
Orange, rosemary, peppermint, and spearmint oils are in a base of jojoba oil and this is one of the best ones I’ve received.
The blend is very uplifting and the mint and orange blend beautifully together. This is an instant pick-me-up
I thought the essential oils sent this month in my AromaBox were good basic oils that can be used in a variety of ways. I mixed them up in my diffuser and loved the scent, plus I can use them with other oils in my collection in so many different ways. The blend was my very favorite, but then I am always a fan of mint.
