Disclosure: This is a sponsored review written by me. I received a Simply Earth essential oils monthly box for review purposes. All opinions are my own.
As a mom, it’s easy to forget about self-care, but it’s extremely important! Now that my youngest is almost three, I felt it was time to dive back into my own self-care. I recently changed my eating and lifestyle habits. I’m seeing great results after only one month in! I am also happy to announce that I am going back to using essential oils in my daily routine as a part of this new lifestyle choice. It has been years since I’ve used essential oils. My collection mainly consisted of oils like lavender, chamomile, eucalyptus, peppermint, and more. I sure do miss all of those wonderful oils! I used the oils mostly at bath time, but now I’m seeking out new ways to use essential oils.
I am brand new at DIY essential oil recipes. I will be experimenting with essential oil recipes over the next year! I’m super excited to learn all of the ways I can use essential oils besides for basic aromatherapy. For example, I plan to eliminate all toxic household products in my home and replace them with cleaners made with essential oils! With three kids in the house, I want to make sure my house is safe from potentially harmful chemicals. This includes household cleaners and personal care products. I’m a label reader and I want to know exactly what we are using and consuming for health reasons! When I make my own products, I’m in control of what goes in them and what’s being used by my family.

Simply Earth helps to make the process of trying out essential oils a breeze! They send you a box of essential oils and recipe cards to try each month. If you are new to essential oils and you want to find a way to get started with them, this is a great way to take time to learn about the oils as they arrive to you each month!
I remember when I started with essential oils, I was overwhelmed by the choices out there. I also wasn’t quite sure how to use the essential oils and what recipes to use to get the most out of my investment. Thankfully, the Simply Earth subscription boxes can help with that! The recipe cards are easy to follow. The beauty of the box is that you can take some time creating your recipes and then try them out for yourself! Get the boxes monthly to keep your collection and recipes going until you have most of your household cleaners and other products replaced with the essential oil recipes. That’s my plan!
Today I’m excited to share with you the contents of the April subscription box from Simply Earth. Each month you get all the ingredients, containers and extras you need to make 6 natural recipes, all delivered right to your doorstep. When I first received my box on my doorstep, I was impressed with the design and the color (my kids thought it was a goody box for them!) It was pretty heavy, too – so I knew it was packed FULL of fun essential oils and items to try.

My personal thoughts on the Simply Earth Subscription Bonus Box and Recipe Box:
The bonus box and the recipe box came with almost everything I needed to get started again with essential oils. While there are still a few products that I will need to purchase for some of the recipes (those items are listed with an * on the recipe card – items like Fels Naptha Soap, Borax, washing soda, etc.), I’m prepared with a list to pick these items up during my next shopping trip so that I can start a few of the recipes. Some recipes you can get started on right away, for example, the stain remover and the natural home diffuser recipe I can create now. I enjoyed receiving the bottles and roll on tubes that are included with the bonus box as well as the stickers to label my recipes so I don’t forget what they are!
Here are the recipes included in the April Simply Earth Box:
Natural Laundry Detergent – I’ve been wanting to make my own laundry detergent for a LONG time.
Foaming Hand Soap – My current hand soaps are drying out my hands and causing irritation. They need to go. I’ll be replacing with this recipe and I’ll need to find an 8 oz. soap dispenser (or a few for each sink in the house – 5 total!)
Lemon and Nutmeg Dishwasher Detergent – In my quest to change out our household products, I have not been able to find a better alternative to dishwasher detergent. This recipe is PERFECT to try!
Tea Tree and Lemon Surface Cleaner – This will replace the numerous spray bottles of cleaners I have around my home currently. I never read labels until recently and was shocked at a few of the ingredients in some of these cleaners – chemicals we use on our kitchen counters and places where we sit, etc!
Natural Home Diffuser Recipe – I can’t wait to diffuse this recipe when I’m working from home downstairs. I’m sure the lemon scent will give me an extra boost of energy!
Laundry Stain Remover Roll On – I made this recipe already and it was super easy to make! I’ll be trying it out on stains soon!
I was very pleased with this set of essential oils and recipes. It will give me enough to work on this month to replace a few of our household items that I’ve been wanting to replace.
I also love subscription boxes. It’s almost like receiving a birthday or Christmas gift each month – which is why I think giving these subscription boxes as gifts is also a GREAT idea! Get your box NOW! Don’t delay. Get started with Simply Earth TODAY!
