Let’s see what’s in the April 2022 Simply Earth box!
Everything was shipped in a small brown box with a blue Simply Earth logo on top.
A peek inside!
An info card (printed on the back of one of the recipe cards) revealed April’s theme: “Clean Laundry”. It listed this month’s featured oils, along with any included extras. It also provided a few safety tips for each oil/blend.
A note from Katie — recipe formulator & certified aromatherapist — revealed a bit more about this month’s theme.
April’s recipes provided clear instructions for whipping up the following:
- Clean & Crisp Diffuser Blend
- Fresh Reusable Dryer Sheets
- Soap Nut Liquid Laundry Soap
- Fresh Start Roll-On
- Clean Linen Spray
- Stain Remover
A sheet of pre-printed stickers was also included for labeling your creations.
This month’s oils included:
- Tea Tree
- Red Thyme
- Clean & Fresh
Tangerine essential oil is known for its aromatic citrus scent that can assist in aiding digestion, supporting your immune system, and clearing your mind. It also effective cleaning properties, making it great to use in DIY cleaning products. This particular batch of oil was sourced in Brazil from the peel of the fruit. Every Simply Earth oil is printed with a Simply Pure Promise™ that ensures that the product has been quality tested and is 100% pure. Ingredients are also clearly printed on every label.
Tea tree is one of the most popular/beloved oils around the world — thanks to its antiseptic, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties. Some of its more common uses include combatting acne, sanitizing, repelling insects, deodorizing, soothing skin inflammation, controlling dandruff, and treating fungal conditions (like athlete’s foot). It has a slightly medicinal scent, with earthy/woody notes.
Thyme is not only for the culinary world. Its oil has many benefits outside of the kitchen including combatting respiratory problems, repelling pests, supporting immunity, relieving an upset stomach, disinfecting, boosting your mood, aiding digestion, and so much more!
The only blend of April’s box, “Clean & Fresh” contains a fragrant combination of fir needle, neroli, lemon, and grapefruit essential oils. It was designed to leave your spaces clean & fresh by killing germs naturally, while giving you a boost of energy thanks to its uplifting aroma.
Two 2-oz Spray Bottles
A set of 2-oz spray bottles was included to hold both the Stain Remover and Clean Linen Spray recipes featured in the box. Both are made of amber-colored plastic and come with clear plastic caps.
“Soap nuts” are the dried shells (or husks) from the soapberry nut, which come from the Sapindus mukorossi tree. Despite their name, soap nuts are actually berries — making them totally safe for those with nut allergies. 🙂 The shells of the soap nut contain a natural soap called saponin. When the nutshells absorb water, the saponin is released, creating a soaping effect. Saponin is 100% natural and biodegradable.
Cotton Fabric Squares
A package of cotton fabric squares was provided to use with the “Fresh Reusable Dryer Sheets” recipe. The packet contained five reusable squares.
Here are the recipes that I’ve made so far:
Clean & Crisp Diffuser Blend
Supplies needed: Thyme Essential Oil, Tea Tree Essential Oil, Tangerine Essential Oil, and Clean & Fresh Essential Oil Blend.
This “recipe” was incredibly easy and simply required me to fill my diffuser with water, then add the specified amount drops of each of the essential oils above. Once added, I switched on the diffuser and let the aroma fill the room.
Clean Linen Spray
Supplies needed: Thyme Essential Oil, Clean & Fresh Essential Oil Blend, Tea Tree Essential Oil, distilled water, and spray bottle.
Another super easy recipe that simply involved adding the specified amount of essential oils into the included spray bottle and filling the rest up with distilled water.
Once filled, I gave the bottle a shake to mix all of the “ingredients” and then slapped on the pretty purple “Clean Linen Spray” sticker provided. So easy!
Supplies needed: Liquid or castile soap, Tea Tree Essential Oil, hydrogen peroxide, and spray bottle.
As with the previous recipes, all that was required here was to simply pour all of the ingredients into the provided spray bottle (the second of the two). I did most of this over the sink to minimize mess, but did manage to snap a photo of the oils going in. 😉
Once added, the liquid was swirled inside the bottle to fully incorporate the soap/oil/peroxide and the label sticker was applied.
Fresh Start Roll-On
Supplies needed: Tangerine Essential Oil, Clean & Fresh Essential Oil Blend, Tea Tree Essential Oil, fractionated coconut oil*, and a glass roll-on bottle*.
*Included in Big Bonus Box.
Another super easy recipe that simply involved placing a specified amount of essential oils drops into the roll-on bottle and filling the rest up with fractionated coconut oil. — Then carefully position the sticker/label and you’re done!
