Let’s see what’s in the October 2016 Simply Earth box!
Everything was shipped in a small box with the Simply Earth logo on top.
A peek inside.
All of the recipes were attached to an easy open ring clip and came with corresponding stickers to attach to the finished products.
October’s theme was “Fun for the Kids” and included recipes for the following:
- Kid’s Bubbles
- Play Dough
- Cloud Dough
- Calming Water Beads
- Bubble Bath
- Monster Spray
Each recipe card listed the ingredients needed and (easy!) directions for making them.
Four traditional 15ml bottles of essential oil were included, along with one 10ml roll-on.
Bubble Bath – A bottle of natural, unscented bubble bath base was provided to mix with both lavender and mandarin essential oils for an instant DIY bubble bath blend.
Monster Spray – Scare away those monsters hiding in your kiddo’s closet with this soothing aromatherapy spray. Simply fill the provided aluminum bottle with water, add ten drops of lavender essential oil, and spritz away.
Kid’s Bubbles – Make an all natural bubble solution using the included tangerine essential oil and a few other common kitchen ingredients. They even provided a cute oversized flower-shaped bubble wand.
Play Dough – A natural alternative to store bought play dough, this recipe includes the aforementioned tangerine essential oil as well as flour, salt, cream of tartar, vegetable oil, water, and food coloring.
Calming Water Beads – Keep kids busy with these colorful, soothing water beads. Just soak them in water with a few drops of Peace and Quiet blend for 4-7 hours, or until they become fully hydrated and squishy. Peace and Quiet blend consists of sweet orange, frankincense, cedarwood, and lime essential oils.
Cloud Dough – Like play dough, but fluffier! This is made using the Peace and Quiet blend along with flour, vegetable oil, and powdered tempera paint or chalk (optional).
Sleepy Roll-On – In addition to the pure oils, there was also a roll-on (diluted in fractionated coconut oil) to apply before bed to encourage a good night’s sleep. It featured a blend of lavender, rosewood, bergamot, & grapefruit essential oils and it smelled amazing.
I was really impressed with my first Simply Earth box. I love the fact that they not only include a selection of high quality essential oils, but also practical recipes for utilizing them. As a mom of two active 4-year-olds, I’m excited to see if these recipes will actually help calm them down. 😉 The box is also a great value… Essential oils can be pretty pricey, so getting FIVE of them as well as extra materials for $39 shipped is a pretty good deal!
