A peek inside!
An info card (printed on the back of one of the recipe cards) revealed June’s theme: “DIY Diffusers”. 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.
June’s recipes provided clear instructions for whipping up the following:
- Sweet Mint Diffuser Blend
- Candied Clove Gel Air Freshener
- Blossom Reed Diffuser
- Almond Joy Roll-On Blend
- Spiced Summer Potpourri Bark
- DIY Fit Diffuser Key Chain
A sheet of pre-printed stickers was also included for labeling your creations.
June’s oils included:
- Supreme Peppermint
- Bud Clove
- Fit Blend
- Anise Star
Peppermint Essential Oil is one of my favorites to have on hand thanks to its ability to deter spiders and other creepy crawlies. Other benefits include aiding digestion, relaxing muscles, soothing skin irritation, easing seasonal discomfort, soothing headaches, and more. You can also add a few drops to water to create a hygienic, breath-freshening mouthwash that also soothes a sore throat and congestion.
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.
I don’t believe that I’ve ever acquired/tried Clove Essential Oil before, so this was a welcome addition to June’s box. On this steamy 90-degree day, its spicy scent is making me long for the cooler months of autumn. Aside from invoking cozy autumn vibes, clove is also great for promoting immunity, aiding in digestion, supporting heart wellness, reducing the appearance of breakouts, and more.
“Fit” is June’s only blend and was designed to help you maintain your weight & resist snacking in between meals. It contains a fresh & minty combination of grapefruit, spearmint, and lavender essential oils.
Any mention of anise immediately takes my mind right to Jingles Cookies (also called Santa’s Favorites). Growing up, we always had them at Christmas time and just one whiff of this oil made me long for the holidays of yore. 😉 In addition to flavoring cookies, anise is great for promoting circulation, cleansing the skin, aiding in digestion, supporting joint function, and more.
Reed Diffuser Bouquet
How cute is this little reed diffuser bouquet?! It consists of 2 “flower” reeds, 2 curly reeds, and 1 greenery sprig. To use, simply place in a small bottle/container with distilled water and essential oils. Then display in an area that needs a little freshening up.
DIY Wood Bead Keychain Diffuser
This DIY wood bead keychain allows you to enjoy the power of essential oils on the go. Just arrange the beads onto the string in your preferred order, attach it to the keychain, and add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to the unfinished wood beads. Refresh with more oil as needed.
Simply Earth Natural Solubilizer
This all-natural emulsifier allows essential oils to evenly disperse within a water-based mixture. It’s plant-derived and contains zero harsh ingredients.
Here are the recipes that I’ve made so far:
Sweet Mint Diffuser Blend
Supplies needed: Peppermint Essential Oil Blend, Clove Essential Oil, and Anise Star Essential Oil.
The easiest of all the recipes, it 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 minty aroma fill the room.
DIY Fit Diffuser Key Chain
Supplies needed: DIY Diffuser Key Chain Kit and 3 drops Fit Essential Oil Blend.
Another simple “recipe”, this one had me utilizing all of the materials in the provided keychain kit. To begin, I tied a knot at the end of the white string and arranged the beads in whatever order I wished.
Once all of the beads were strung, I attached the provided metal keyring and trimmed the excess string. To use as a diffuser, I just needed to add 3 drops of essential oil to the unfinished wood beads.
Spiced Summer Potpourri Bark
Supplies needed: Beeswax*, Solid Coconut Oil*, Clove Essential Oil Blend, Peppermint Essential Oil, Anise Star Essential Oil, Fit Essential Oil blend, and parchment paper or a silicone mold.
*Included in Big Bonus Box.
To begin, I needed to melt the indicated amount of both beeswax pellets and solid coconut oil.
Once fully melted (I used the microwave in 30 second increments), I stirred in the required essential oils. You could also add dried flowers or spices, but I kept it super simple.
I then poured the mixture into a flower-shaped silicone mold from a previous Simply Earth box. — It hardened FAST.
I let it harden for about an hour and popped it out of the mold. To use, just place or hang anywhere in your home (or car!) and enjoy the fresh scent.
Almond Joy Roll-On Blend
Supplies needed: Fit Essential Oil Blend, Anise Star Essential Oil, fractionated coconut oil*, and a 10mL Roll-On Bottle*.
*Included in Big Bonus Box.
Another 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 just replace the cap and carefully position the sticker/label & you’re done!
Blossom Reed Diffuser
Supplies needed: Clove Essential Oil Blend, Peppermint Essential Oil, Star Anise Essential Oil, Simply Earth Natural Solubilizer, reed diffuser bouquet, distilled water, and a small jar.
I saved my favorite recipe for last! — To begin, I mixed together all of the required essential oils and blended them with the provided natural solubilizer.
Once combined, I carefully poured the mixture into a small jar/vase that I already had (and was thrilled to finally have a use for!).
I then arranged the reed bouquet inside the vase and I was done. — So cute!!
It’s the perfect way to add fragrance to small spaces throughout your house. I LOVE it!
