Let’s see what’s in the October 2021 Simply Earth box!
Everything was shipped in their “Big Bonus Box” with the regular monthly box tucked inside. All new subscribers receive the bonus box (a $50 value) with their new subscription — as well as a second one at 7 months (if you’re still subscribed, of course!).
A peek inside! — The monthly box is on the left, while the rest of the box contains the bonus items.
I’ll start with the October box and show the contents of the Big Bonus Box afterwards.
The box above is the typical size of the one you’ll receive each month.
A peek inside!
An info card (printed on the back of one of the recipe cards) revealed October’s theme: “Immunity Support”. It listed this month’s featured oils, along with any included extras. It also provided a few safety tips for each oil/blend.
October’s recipes provided clear instructions for whipping up the following:
- Clear the Air Diffuser Blend
- Stomach Soother Roll-On
- Menthol Shower Steamers
- Multipurpose Cleaning Spray
- Menthol Chest Rub
- Cooling Massage Oil
A sheet of pre-printed stickers was also included for labeling your creations.
This month’s oils included:
- Fir Needle
- Digest (blend)
These were all chosen for their ability to keep your immune system strong during the coming winter months.
The only blend of the bunch, “Digest” contains a combination of aniseed, bergamot, German chamomile, and sweet orange essential oil. This fragrant blend is designed to help alleviate symptoms of cramping and gas when used topically. 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.
The eucalyptus oil above is made from the wood and leaves of the eucalyptus globulus tree. Its scent is described as “clean and herbaceous” and can have a stimulating or energizing effect.
I just took a whiff of this oil and it immediately took me right back to Christmas morning in my childhood home. Amazing how scents can have such power! Needless to say, I LOVE this oil. It hails all the way from Russia and was derived from the needles of the Siberian Fir tree.
Cajeput was a new one for me. I had never heard of it, nor do I know how to pronounce it. 😉 Turns out, it comes from the same family as tea tree (with a similar medicinal scent) and is known for its antiseptic and analgesic qualities. It’s also considered an anti-inflammatory, which is sometimes used to help treat minor skin wounds, colds, and inflammatory skin diseases. The oil above was derived from the leaves & twigs of the melaleuca cajeputi tree.
A packet of menthol crystals was provided to use in some of the recipes featured in this month’s box. Derived from the peppermint plant, menthol has a natural cooling and soothing effect. The crystals need to be melted down and blended with a carrier oil in order to utilize them.
Multi-Purpose Cleaning Tablet
A new offering from Simply Earth, the cleansing tablet above is formulated to provide easy and effective cleaning power that compliments the power of essential oils. It can be used in the Multipurpose Cleaning Spray recipe below.
Glass Serum Bottle
A cute little glass dropper bottle was provided to use for easy application of serums and oils. It can be utilized for the Cooling Massage Oil recipe featured in this box.
Here are the recipes that I’ve made so far:
Clear the Air Diffuser Blend
Supplies needed: Digest Oil Blend, Eucalyptus Oil, Cajeput Oil, and Fir Needle Oil.
This “recipe” was incredibly easy and simply required me to add 2 drops of Digest blend and 1 drop of the other blends into my diffuser.
I then turned it on and enjoyed the soothing customized scent. 🙂
Menthol Shower Steamers
Supplies needed: Coconut oil, menthol crystals, Fir needle oil, Eucalyptus oil, baking soda, and any type of mold (plastic, silicone, cupcake tin, etc).
There were a few steps to this one… First, I had to melt 2 tbsp of coconut oil and then mix in 1 tsp menthol crystals until dissolved. Next, I added the required essential oils followed by 1/2 cup of baking soda. Once the mixture took on a dough-like consistency, it was ready to spoon into the molds.
Luckily, I had plastic molds from a recent kid’s craft subscription box, which were the perfect size for these steamers. I spooned the mixture into each mold, where they would sit to fully harden for roughly 24 hours.
Stomach Soother Roll-On
The final recipe I tried (so far) was the stomach soother roll-on. Supplies needed: Digest Oil Blend, Fir Needle Oil, fractionated coconut oil, roll-on bottle.
Another simple one! — All I needed to do was pour 10mL fractionated coconut oil into a roll-on bottle, along with 3 drops of Digest blend and 3 drops of Fir Needle oil. I then gave it a little swirl and applied the “Stomach Soother” sticker to the cap. So easy!
Now for a quick look at the FREE Big Bonus Box!
My Big Bonus Box included the following helpful supplies:
- 6 glass rollerball bottles

I really enjoyed the October 2021 “Immunity Support” themed Simply Earth box. With the cooler weather on the horizon, cold & flu season isn’t too far behind. Thanks to this box, I feel a bit more prepared for any ailments that may pop up. I’m ready to sooth some tummy aches with my new roll-on, open sinuses with my shower steamers, and clear the air with my custom diffuser blend. 😀 — Remember, for a limited time new subscribers can get a $40 gift card AND a FREE Bonus Box ($50 value!) with coupon code “WENDYROSEFREE“!
