Let’s see what’s in the March 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 March’s theme: “Tickled Pink”. 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.
March’s recipes provided clear instructions for whipping up the following:
- DIY Shave Butter
- Pink Tinted Lip Balm
- Unicorn Soap
- Citrus Joy Roll-On
- Eye & Cheek Tint
- Find a Rainbow Diffuser Blend
A sheet of pre-printed stickers was also included for labeling your creations.
This month’s oils included:
- Pink Grapefruit
- Head Soothing
Cypress essential oil is known for its aromatic properties that help with emotional stability and grieving. It’s also great for deodorizing. This particular batch of oil was sourced right here in the USA from the leaves of the cypress tree. 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.
Ooh, I LOVE citrus scents so I was very excited to see Pink Grapefruit included in this month’s box. 🙂 Grapefruit has been found to have many benefits including clearing blemished skin, rejuvenating dull hair, boosting your mood, and supporting mental focus. Plus, it smells really good. 😉
Two citrus scents in one box? Heck yes! 😀 As you’d expect, mandarin essential oil has a sweet/fruity scent and has a variety of uses. It can aid in soothing sore muscles, easing anxiety, deodorizing/cleaning, diminishing the appearance of stretch marks/scars, and so much more.
The only blend of March’s box, “Head Soothing” contains a powerful combination of ho wood, lavender, and frankincense essential oils. This oil has a fresh, floral scent that’s great for easing tension and stress-related headaches. It’s perfect for blending with coconut oil in a roller ball bottle for topical application.
Glycerin Melt & Pour Soap
A package of melt & pour glycerin soap was provided to use with this month’s “Unicorn Soap” recipe. Read on for the finished product. 🙂
Flower Shaped Soap Mold
A pink silicone flower-shaped soap mold was also provided to aid in the making of the aforementioned “Unicorn Soap”.
Raspberry Mica Powder
A packet of 100% natural raspberry-colored mica powder was included for the “Unicorn Soap”, as well as two additional recipes. The powder contains absolutely nothing synthetic and was ethically sourced here in the United States. Also, it’s SUCH a pretty color!
Here are the recipes that I’ve made so far:
Find a Rainbow Diffuser Blend
Supplies needed: Grapefruit Essential Oil, Mandarin Essential Oil, Cypress Essential Oil, and Head Soothing 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.
Citrus Joy Roll-On
Supplies needed: Grapefruit Essential Oil, Mandarin 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.
Once full, the coordinating stickers could be placed on the outside. — Easy peasy!
Supplies needed: Glycerin melt & pour soap base, mica powder, rubbing alcohol, Grapefruit Essential Oil, Mandarin Essential Oil, and soap mold.
The first step was to melt the entire package of soap base cubes in a microwave-safe bowl.
Once melted, I added the required essential oils and stirred into the soap.
Next, (in a separate bowl) I was to mix together 1/4 tsp mica powder and 1 tsp rubbing alcohol.
I then poured half of the soap/oil mixture into the mica/alcohol bowl.
Next, I propped the soap mold on a lid at an angle as noted in the instructions and poured in the clear half of the soap mixture (which is actually a bit pink due to not rinsing the mica-covered spoon first. 😉 ).
I let the soap harden for a few minutes, then placed it flat on the counter and gave it a spritz of rubbing alcohol.
The final step was to add the remaining mica-colored soap mixture into the mold and allow it to fully set/harden.
After letting it sit overnight, I removed the soap from the mold.
It turned out great and smelled amazing. 😀
