Simply Earth Essential Oil Recipe Box

We were thrilled when Simply Earth sent us their Essential Oil Recipe Box to review. We eagerly made the EO recipes from the box, which we share below.

But first, why were we so thrilled about the Simply Earth Box? 

Well, if you’re new to DIY beauty, want to make DIY natural products for your home, or if you’re simply overwhelmed by all the supplies you will need to get started, the folks at Simply Earth have a solution.

Did we also mention that each Simply Earth Box is valued at $100+? That’s pretty impressive, considering we know how much DIY supplies can set you back, especially when you’re first starting your DIY journey. 

As we mentioned, we made 6 natural recipes from the June 2020 box which we thought was pretty incredible considering the low price. Simply Earth really strives to make both their essential oils and their recipes economical.

What Essential Oils are Inside the Simply Earth June 2020 box?

Inside the June box, we received 4 full-sized therapeutic essential oils. We also received a handy infographic on the back of one of the recipe cards which outlined the uses of the essential oils included in the box.

According to the information provided by Simply Earth, these are the benefits of the following essential oils:

  • Lavender Essential Oil: calms and heals skin, kills germs and relieves pain and allergies
  • Cardamom Essential Oil: a warming oil that aids in pain relief, digestion and alertness. Also acts as a natural decongestant. 
  • Timber Essential Oil Blend: this masculine scented oil is a blend of Cypress, Cedarwood, Sandalwood, Patchouli, Peru Balsam and Mandarin. The Timber Blend calms and supports skin health.
  • Bumps and Boo Boos Blend: a blend of Helichrysum, Lavender, Tea Tree and Lemon which kills germs and heals the skin. 

Additional Natural Ingredients Included in the Simply Earth Box

Also, inside the June box:

Dried Calendula Flowers — also known as marigold flowers. Calendula is known for its skin-healing and antimicrobial properties.

It’s ideal for use in skin soothing salves and its infused oil can be used for treating minor burns or skin irritations. Calendula is also a wonderful herb for use in the treatment of dry skin or acne. 

Aloe Vera Gel — this gel is soothing, healing, cooling, and antibacterial. It’s the main ingredient in the Skin Healing Gel recipe, which you will also find in the June box.

The aloe vera gel included in the box can also be used to make DIY hand sanitizer, if you have any left over.
