Let’s see what’s in the July 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 July’s theme: “Spa-liday Box”. 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.
July’s recipes provided clear instructions for whipping up the following:
- At Home Hot Stone Massage Oil
- Summer Morning Roll-On
- Reset Bath Melt
- Peace Floating Candle
- Harmony Diffuser Blend
- Fresh Vibes Aromatherapy Inhaler
A sheet of pre-printed stickers was also included for labeling your creations.
July’s oils included:
- Cinnamon (Leaf)
Cinnamon (leaf) is believed to be one of the oldest plants on earth and its oil has been used for centuries. Some of its most notable benefits include promoting circulation, cleansing/deodorizing, supporting heart health, balancing cravings, comforting respiration, and more. Since it’s a very strong essential oil, it’s best used in small amounts.
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.
Lemongrass is one of my very favorite scents so I was excited to see it included in July’s box! It has a very clean, citrusy/earthy aroma that I absolutely LOVE. Lemongrass essential oil is great for cleaning & deodorizing, but is also an effective insect deterrent, hair strengthener, and digestion tamer.
Sage has been used for thousands of years to improve cognition and protect against cognitive decline. It can also improve scalp health, ease painful muscles, soothe head discomfort, and provide support to the immune system. It has a calming, earthy/floral scent.
The only blend of July’s box, “Energy” contains an uplifting combination of eucalyptus, lemon, and peppermint essential oils. It was designed to give you a natural burst of energy minus the caffeine or sugar. It’s the perfect blend to help boost your mood, clear your mind, support your immune system and of course get that much-needed energy boost. 🙂
A package of 3 floating wicks was included for use in the “Peace Floating Candle” recipe. I forgot to snap a photo of them out of the package, but you can see them in action later in the review. 🙂
A plastic aromatherapy inhaler was included as the vessel to hold the oils in the “Fresh Vibes Aromatherapy Inhaler” recipe. Inside is a cotton tube onto which the oils are placed.
The heat-holding stone above was included to be used in conjunction with the recipe for “At Home Hot Stone Massage Oil”. To use, simply heat the stone in a bowl of hot water until its warm and then use it to massage the oil onto your body.
Here are the recipes that I’ve made so far:
Harmony Diffuser Blend
Supplies needed: Cinnamon Essential Oil, Lemongrass Essential Oil, Energy Essential Oil Blend and Sage Essential Oil.
The diffuser recipes are always incredibly easy and simply require me to fill a diffuser with water, then add the specified amount drops of each of the essential oils above. Once added, I just switch on the diffuser and let the aroma fill the room.
Fresh Vibes Aromatherapy Inhaler
Supplies needed: Aromatherapy inhaler, Lemongrass Essential Oil, Sage Essential Oil, and Cinnamon Essential Oil.
The first step was to remove the cap from the inhaler and take out the cotton “wick”.
The wick was then to be placed in a small bowl, where the specified essential oils would be added to it.
Once the oils were added, I carefully put the wick back into the inhaler and replaced the cap. To use, you just unscrew the top, place near your nose, and inhale deeply.
Summer Morning Roll-On
Supplies needed: Lemongrass Essential Oil, Energy Essential Oil Blend, fractionated coconut oil*, and a glass roll-on bottle*.
*Included in Big Bonus Box.
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!
Peace Floating Candle
Supplies needed: Floating wicks, Lemongrass Essential Oil, Sage Essential Oil, Cinnamon Essential Oil, heat proof vase or jar, decorative items (optional), and cooking oil.
I didn’t snap any photos of the process here, but it was super simple: Assemble the wicks (stick the wick into the foil/cork circle), fill a jar/bowl with water, add a thin layer of cooking oil followed by the essential oils, place the wicks on top and light. EASY! 😀
