As I began to dive deep into learning about natural remedies and the solutions God gave us in nature for common needs, one topic that kept coming up is essential oils. And it is definitely a big topic – either you love them, or you don’t. (Or maybe you are just scared of using them because of all the conflicting sources out there!)

Well I’m here to help ease some of that, and I’ve partnered with Simply Earth to show you how to make learning about essential oils easy, safe, and fun for the whole family.

Simply Earth is all about making a natural home safe and fun for the whole family. And initially, it started with stinky feet. The owners of the company were looking for natural products to help with stinky feet that weren’t filled with all sorts of chemicals. Kate and Shilah (both certified aromatherapists) teamed up to do the research, and ultimately found a blend of oils that would naturally eliminate odor. As they began to search for these oils – sourcing quality and pure oils – they found that in bulk, it doesn’t have to be so expensive as we’re told.

Ultimately, these moms were tired of having to overpay for pure essential oils and having to go to a party or middleman to actually buy them. Why not get them from the source, and work with the farms directly? They were frustrated by using natural products that don’t always work, too.

And after asking around, they found lots of women were upset about this, too. Thus, Simply Earth was started to help make your home natural, and affordable. No gimmicks, no pyramid scheme, just pure, unadulterated, quality oils from the source, direct to you.

The ladies at Simply Earth loved making their own natural products and knowing exactly what’s in them – does this sound like you, natural minded mama? – so with this background, the essential oil recipe box was created.

In this box, you get everything you need to make your home natural; easy and fun recipes to follow; all with honest prices, and products that truly work.

This box puts you in charge of your own wellness, and as a bonus, the recipe box is a fun way to include your children, making easy natural recipes together.

And that is just what I did with this month’s recipe box!

As you’ll see in the video below, my three year old really enjoyed talking to the camera “OK guys! You put the oil here…” It was a lot of fun for us to make!

The first month, and every six months for subscribers, everything comes packed within the Big Bonus Box. I’ll get to that in a minute. Once you open the bonus box up, you see the monthly subscription box.

In this box for just $39, you get four essential oils, and all the extras you need to make six unique recipe creations. This month’s theme was soapmaking! And it was very fun – we made a unique roll-on and SOAP!

The oils included were Happy Joy blend, Bay, Lemongrass, and Cajeput. Check out this article here to see the comparable blends between well-known companies. Every oily company has their own name for this stuff – but rest assured, there are more economical ways to get what you want!

Happy Joy

Feeling down in the dumps? Need something to brighten your mood? Happy Joy essential oils blend is bound to make your day better! The fresh and sunny scent provides a refreshing aroma that can be used in a variety of ways. The blend is comprised of geranium, sweet orange, grapefruit, and ylang ylang.

It is safe for ages 10+, and is not recommended for use in pregnancy or breastfeeding.

Bay (Laurel Leaf)

The laurel leaf is known for its symbolism as the victor’s wreath that crowned men in ancient Greece and Rome. This essential oils works great for mental well being as it is an uplifting and energizing oil that can also promote confidence. It also helps to stimulate appetite and supports a healthy respiratory system. Laurel is an evergreen tree which grows from 10-18 meters tall. It is a sweet herbal aroma when dried, and has a mild floral spicy scent, similar to oregano.

It is safe for ages 10+, and is not recommended for use in pregnancy or while breastfeeding.

Lemongrass

Lemongrass can be found in traditional Indian medicine, used to treat infectious illnesses and fevers. It has countless benefits to mental well-being. It’s used to purify the air, provide emotional calm, ease the nerves and provide mental clarity, and to warm overused muscles and joints. Lemongrass has a fresh earthy and citrus scent, and comes from a tall perennial plant, with sharp leaves.

It is safe for ages 10+, and is safe in pregnancy and while breastfeeding at a 0.5% dilution rate or less, used sparingly.

Cajeput

Cajeput is a tree from the Melaleuca family, which is also where we find Tea Tree. It has white, spongy, flexible bark that you can easily remove from the trunk. Cajeput trees are evergreens characterized by pointed leave with red, green, or white flowers. It originates from Indonesia, and has been used as a remedy for countless ailments and conditions, including headaches, toothaches, sore muscles, fever, and more. It energizes, improves mood, alleviates sore muscles and joints, and relieves menstrual cramps.

It is safe for ages 10+ and is not recommended for use during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Here is a close up on these oils. Aren’t those labels pretty and clean? I love their marketing material. Also included on the bottle is the botanical name, safety, uses, and dilution rate. Plus – 13% of every purchase is donated to human trafficking – find out more about that here – hence, the number 13% is on every bottle too.

Past the oils, it’s all about the recipes. Here are the six recipes that are included for the month’s box.

A compress, flowers and spice diffuser blend, Happy Joy Roll-On, Happy Joy facial soap, sugar scrub soap bar, and flowers, spice, and something nice soap. Below you can see what these recipe cards look like – They are made on thick, colorful paper to make it easy to add to your natural recipe collection and use as you need to.
