Simply Earth Combines Essential Oils with Crafty DIY Project in August's "Face Care" Box

Press Sample and Affiliate Links

It's no secret I love finding and trying out beauty products! While I do not have a dedicated "Beauty Room", I do have an office where I store my products, photograph them, and write about them here on the blog. Another interest of mine is crafting, and I have a shelf filled with assorted odds and ends for my current project du jour. While I've generally kept these two passions separate, I was ecstatic to see my love of do-it-yourself combined with face care when I stumbled across Simply Earth.


Simply Earth is an essential oil brand that curates a subscription box with fun monthly themes. I've always loved the idea of essential oils, but with so much information to digest and the staggering cost of each bottle, I've shied away from really jumping in and using them. Until now! Simply Earth is a family run company that started all because of stinky feet. After sourcing quality and bulk ingredients, they discovered that essential oils aren't as expensive as the MLM brands I keep seeing. This revelation in itself isn't particularly shocking, but what I AM impressed with is Simply Earth's dedication to quality. They have sourced their oils from pesticide-free farms across the globe so each oil is derived from plants grown in optimal conditions. Working directly with farmers, Simply Earth has assured that the oils are then harvested fairly and with safe practices by either steam distillation or cold pressing. Each batch then undergoes GC/MS testing to verify purity for quality assurance. What is sent out is an undiluted, GMO-free oil at an affordable price. If you're not happy with you purchase, there is a 365 day guarantee. This is something I am happy to support!



Now that I've filled you in on the company and the general practices, let's get into the Essential Oil Recipe Box! This is a subscription box with two subscription options:

The MONTHLY BOX is $39 per month, and you will receive a box every month.

The QUARTERLY BOX is $45 every three months, and you will receive one box every three months.

There is no additional membership fee for subscripting, and you can skip boxes should you need to save some money or if the specific boxes just don't appeal to you.

Simply Earth donates 13% of profits to organizations that work to end human trafficking. The specific organization changes each month, but the end goal is always the same. Why 13%, you ask? This is the average age of a child that enters the trafficking ring.


Each Essential Oil Recipe box comes with 4 x 15mL essential oils, recipe cards that utilize the oils with recipes that fit within the monthly theme, and additional extras that may be needed to complete the recipes. Please keep in mind that there may still be some ingredients not included that you will have to provide. This is particularly true in the upcoming "Face Care" box for August as some recipes will require water or a handful of food items from the pantry.


This is what is included in August's Essential Oil Recipe Box:

"Clear Skin" Pure Essential Oil
Frankincense Pure Essential Oil
RosemaryPure Essential Oil
ClovePure Essential Oil
Pure Lavender Hydrosol
DIY Compressed Mask
7 Recipe cards
Sticker labels

I don't know if I can even find the words to express my excitement when I saw the reusable sheet mask! If you've been following my blog, you know I'm no longer purchasing sheet masks once I finish my current stock. I still have more to use up, but I am happy to start using the reusable masks and get those into my beauty routine!

The recipes included in this month's box are:
Feel Good Morning Diffuser
Step 1: Frankincense Face Scrub
Step 2: Rosemary Facial Steam
Step 3: Skin Renewing Face Mask
Step 4: Hydrosol Facial Toner
Step 5: Moisturizing Face Cream
Step 6:Clear Skin Roll On

Simply Earth recommends using all 6 face care steps only once a week, but the toner and cream can be used daily and the acne roll on as needed.


Simply Earth also has a BIG BONUS BOX! When you subscribe to a subscription plan, the BIG BONUS BOX will ship with your first purchase. This box is worth $50 and includes assorted supplies such as hard oil, spray bottles, roller bottles and other things to help with the mixing process. The ensure you have what you need, this box is automatically shipped out with every 6th Essential Oil Recipe Box that comes your way. Now that is convenient!

Also, I have to say I love Katie's fun personality showing through here with her sealing sticker!


My BIG BONUS BOX included the following:

Coconut Oil Pure Carrier Oil (4 oz / 118mL)
Coconut Oil Pure Unrefined Cold Pressed (12 fl oz / 355mL)
Almond Oil Pure Carrier Oil  (4 oz / 118mL)
Beeswax (2 oz)
6 x tall amber vials with metal roller inserts
6 x short amber vials with droppers

That's a lot of stuff! I used to purchase many of these, but it added up quickly and I always ended up with far more than I needed (I can't tell you how many too-small vials I packed once again for my last move). The BIG BONUS BOX is a great way to get what you need while still keeping the volume manageable. I really appreciate that!

As you can see, the Simply Earth subscription service comes with A LOT of great products! I love knowing that I am getting quality essential oils at a great price, and the busy mom part of me appreciates that they have already done the leg work and created fabulous recipes that let me keep my home as natural as possible. The added flexibility of being able to skip months and cancel at any time provides the added security I need to comfortably dive in on a subscription plan.

If you are interested in trying out either the quarterly or monthly subscription plans, or if you just want to visit the website and pick up your own assortment of essential oils, please consider using my referral link. Purchasing through this link allows me to continue sharing great products with you here on the blog.

If you decide to subscribe, please use the code LAUGHLOVECONTOURFREE . This code will get you a $40 gift card with your first purchased subscription box and bonus box. Please note that this code is not a discount but an incentive for first time subscribers. It can be used on your next box or a future purchase. These boxes are fantastic for yourself, and the monthly themes makes these a fun gift for friends and family. The holidays will be here soon, and what better way to show you care than giving a handmade gift!

Super Secret reveal!!!!
As you know, the theme for August's box is "Face Care". Each Essential Oil Recipe Box will give you a few details about the following month's box. Next month's box is focused on soap making and will include Happy Joy Blend, Lemongrass, Bay, and Cajeput essential oils and soap base and soap mold extras. September's box is a great follow up to the August skincare-focused box. I've actually always wanted to try my hand at soap making but haven't yet, so I am really excited about it.

Have you used essential oils? What do you like to do with them? Is the "Face Care" box something you would enjoy? How do you feel about the followup soap making box? I'd love to hear from you!

Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful day!
XO!

    1. The Clear Skin blend includes sandalwood and other great essential oils for the skin-tea tree and lemon to name a few. I need to look into Peppermint use for headaches as I'm not a fan of taking medicines if I can avoid them.
