A peek inside!
An info card (printed on the back of one of the recipe cards) revealed December’s theme: “Beauty”. 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.
December’s recipes provided clear instructions for whipping up the following:
- Breath of Pine Shower Spray
- Christmas Morning Shower Melts
- Let It Snow Bath Bombs
- Snow Storm Mini Bath Bombs
- Cheerful Giver Roll-On
- Christmas Vacation Diffuser Blend
A sheet of pre-printed stickers was also included for labeling your creations.
December’s oils included:
- Balsam Fir
- Bumps & Boo-Boos
Simply Earth Lime Essential Oil
Like the fruit itself, lime essential oil has an invigorating fresh & citrusy scent. Some of its common uses include aiding in digestion, deterring insects, cleansing skin (and surfaces!), centering/uplifting, supporting respiration, and more.
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.
Simply Earth Balsam Fir Essential Oil
Balsam fir essential oil has a fresh pine scent that’s great to use during the holidays (and beyond!). It has a variety of aromatherapy benefits including the power to deodorize, reduce the appearance of breakouts, support joint function, uplift your mood, and more. It’s also a nice scent to use in men’s personal care products due to its outdoorsy scent. 🙂
Simply Earth Geranium Essential Oil
I’m not usually a big fan of floral scents, but for some reason I don’t really mind this geranium oil. I mean, I don’t LOVE it, but it’s not awful either. 😉 Derived from the leaves of the geranium plant, this oil was once used by ancient Egyptians to treat tumors and then by Europeans to treat an array of conditions including dysentery, hemorrhoids, menstrual conditions, and diarrhea. Today, it is often used to promote hormone balance, soothe the skin, reduce the appearance of redness, detoxify, and more.
Simply Earth Bumps & Boo-Boos Essential Oil Blend
The only blend of December’s box, “Bumps & Boo-Boos” contains an uplifting blend of tea tree, lemon, lavender, and helichrysum essential oils. It was especially designed to help support the healing process of minor scrapes and bruises, while its calming aroma also soothes anxious emotions that come with pain.
Bath Bomb Mold
A small 2-piece metal bath bomb mold was provided for making… Yep, bath bombs. 😉
Also included to help with the making of bath bombs was a generously sized packet of citric acid. — Citric acid is used along with baking soda to create carbon dioxide bubbles (aka the “fizz”) when you drop your bath bomb in water. Yay, science! 😀
Ocean Blue Mica Powder
A packet of 100% natural ocean blue colored mica powder was included to give the bath bombs a pretty hue. The powder contains absolutely nothing synthetic and was ethically sourced here in the United States.
1 oz Spray Bottle
A small 1-oz spray bottle was included to hold the “Breath of Pine Shower Spray” recipe featured in the box. It’s made of PET plastic, which is completely safe to use with essential oils.
Here are the recipes that I’ve made so far:
Christmas Vacation Diffuser Blend
Supplies needed: Balsam Fir Essential Oil, Lime Essential Oil, and Geranium Essential Oil.
As always, 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 festive aroma fill the room.
Christmas Vacation Master Blend
Every monthly diffuser recipe also comes with instructions for making a “master blend” that gives you a pre-made supply to use as you wish.
Supplies needed: Balsam Fir Essential Oil, Lime Essential Oil, Geranium Essential Oil, and a 5 mL bottle*.
*Included in Big Bonus Box.
All you have to do is pour the specified amount of essential oil into the bottle… (Oops, I spilled a bit!)
…add the provided stickers — and you’re done!
Breath of Pine Shower Spray
Supplies needed: 1 oz Spray Bottle and Balsam Fir Essential Oil.
Another quick and easy recipe, this one required me to place 30 drops of Balsam Fir Essential Oil into the provided spray bottle and fill the rest with distilled water.
To use, simply spray on the walls of your shower prior to showering and let the steam release the scent for a spa-like experience.
Christmas Morning Shower Melts
Supplies needed: 1/4 cup Coconut Oil (solid)*, Balsam Fir Essential Oil, and Lime Essential Oil. You’ll also need some sort of mold or ice cube tray.
*Included in Big Bonus Box.
The first step was to measure out 1/4 cup of solid coconut oil and microwave until fully melted.
Once liquified, I was to add the specified essential oils.
The final step was to add the mixture to a mold and let sit until fully hardened. — I used the silicone flower mold from the March 2022 box and the entire amount fit perfectly! (No photos of the finished product, as it’s still not 100% set.)
Christmas Day Roll-On (mis-marked as Cheerful Giver?)
Supplies needed: Balsam Fir Essential Oil, Lime Essential Oil, and fractionated coconut oil*.
*Included in Big Bonus Box.
Yet another incredibly 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!
