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.
DEAL: Save 15% on your first box with coupon code HELLO15.
FYI – AromaBox is always available through the end of the month, plus you can purchase previous boxes on their website!
I received two cards in my box.
The top card mentioned a customer appreciation sale while the bottom card has info on their online course about herbs.
The theme for March’s box was Cedarwood Sampler.
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 an oil blend. It also had a coupon code for their shop.
Everything arrived safely! 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!”
Everything in the box!
HerbStop Atlas Cedarwood Essential Oil ($3.33) I received 3 cedarwood essential oils this month and I was curious to know the differences between them.
Each bottle has important info listed. This particular oil is derived from Cedrus atlantica and is pure oil. The bottle lists where the plant is from and method of extraction.
The bottle will list if it is mixed with an oil such as jojoba. Atlas cedarwood can be used in making perfume and in aromatherapy. It smells medicinal, sort of like cough syrup.
HerbStop Texas Cedarwood Essential Oil ($2.73) is actually from a juniper, not a cedar tree. This one is from Juniperus mexicana and has more of a woody scent and is also used in fragrances. It can be used to make an inset repelling spray or in treating skin issues such as acne.
Here’s a look at the eurodropper top on each bottle.
HerbStop Blood Cedarwood Essential Oil ($3.57) is another juniper, Juniperus virginiana. It smells like actual cedar and like the other oils it can be used in making perfume, in bug repellent, in skincare products, and in aromatherapy.
HerbStop Thankful Aromatherapy Roll-On Oil Blends ($16.95) AromaBox always contains a ready to go roll-on scent so you can have instant gratification.
This blend includes bergamot, cedarwood, grapefruit, ylang ylang, spruce, and oakmoss combined with jojoba as the carrier oil. I think this is probably my favorite roll-on from Herb Stop! It smells bright from the citrus but also smells smokey and warm, I can almost smell a campfire on my wrist! I am truly blown away.
AromaBox is a fun box to get but it is also informative and has helped me learn a lot about essential oils. I look forward to putting my new oils to use. You can use the ideas provided by The Herb Stop or do some research (Pinterest is awesome) or even browse an aromatherapy book for lots of ways to use the oils. The roll-on is one of my all-time favorites and I appreciate having something to wear as soon as I open the box.
