Simply Earth's August Essential Oil Box

Simply Earth's August Essential Oil Box

Subscription boxes are seriously the way to go when you are looking for something fun to do without heading anywhere. I know after trying to keep 2 energetic girls entertained I would love a bit of pampering. The theme of this month's Simply Earth box is Hey Beautiful and it could not be more perfect. Sometimes we need a bit of reminding that we are all beautiful, and wonderful, and completely amazing. And we are all in this together!
Simply Earth's August Essential Oil Box
This month's Simply Earth box came with a spray bottle, 2 cardboard lip balm tubes (designed for sustainability), cotton rounds, and 4 essential oils. The oils featured in this month's box are: 
  • Grapefruit- helps uplift mood, energize, and balances oily skin 
  • Copaiba- calms and helps to soothe inflammation
  • Juniper Berry- soothes inflammation and aides in energizing
  • Citrus Burst- cleans and uplifts mood
The recipes included are Citrus Summer Diffuser Blend, Radiate Joy Roll On, Sweet Lips Exfoliating Lip Scrub, Sweet Citrus Lip Balm, Citrus Face Mist, and Cucumber Soothing Eye Mask. 

Citrus Summer Diffuser Blend
Simply Earth always blows me away with their amazing diffuser blend recipes. Claire and I love choosing a blend or recipe almost every morning to have in the diffuser and they make the whole house smell so good. Every time I walk by our diffuser, I always feel uplifted and more calm. I love the light, citrusy scents so this one was right up my alley!

Radiate Joy Roll On
We all need one of these don't we?! We have a similar one called a Happy Joy Roll On from a while back and Claire absolutely loves it! This one is similar in purpose, but different in scent. We like them both!

Sweet Lips Exfoliating Lip Scrub
After making one batch of this and trying it out, I immediately made another! Typically Claire makes these with me, but we didn't get to all of them this month before she spent a few days with my parents. Avie was my helper with this one and we loved trying it out! Avie definitely approves! You can rinse it away, but we licked our lips. Haha! This would make an amazing gift in the winter!

Cucumber Soothing Eye Mask 
This is a fun one! We blended up some cucumber and ran it through a sieve for the cucumber juice. Don't throw away the blended cucumber though! Add it to an infuser for some cucumber water. So refreshing. The recipe makes 4 cotton rounds perfectly, but if you have extra you can freeze it in an ice cube tray to use as a frozen facial. I might need to make more just for that purpose! I have bad dark circles and can't wait to try the eye masks out, too. Aren't they such a pretty green color?

Citrus Face Mist
I don't typically use a face mist, but I think I might start after making and smelling this refreshing one! My girls have the tendency to get very red in the face after going outside in the heat so I think we will have them try it, too. I might put it in the fridge for an extra-refreshing mist!

Sweet Citrus Lip Balm
We have made a few different lip balms with Simply Earth boxes and this is my favorite one yet. The smell is so perfect for summer. I appreciate the use of sustainable paperboard lip balm containers! Since lip balm containers are rarely marked for recycling, it makes a difference!

If you are debating signing up, next month's box looks like it will be another great one! The theme is You Stinker! Hilarious name isn't it?! It focuses on fighting order without using toxic chemicals with recipes like a drawer deodorizer and other fun recipes! 

The Simply Earth subscription box is a wonderful opportunity to begin using essential oils more and making useful and fun items you can use in your home. If you have children, the box is a great way to spend some time with them making things together! Use my referral link and my code IDODECLAIREFREE and receive a $40 gift card towards a future box or something else on their site AND a free Bonus Box!! It contains all kinds of little extras to help you make the recipes.
