Simply Earth takes Self Care to the Next Level with November's Bath-Themed Essential Oil Recipe Box

Press Sample and Affiliate Links

I've never really thought of myself as a big essential oil user, but Simply Earth has quickly changed my mind! I was first introduced to the brand this summer with their essential oils and recipes all geared towards face care, and I have been loving these recipe boxes ever since! Since then, I have made soaps, candles, lip balms, pain relief products, and a variety of diffuser blends to suit the changing seasons. This month, Simply Earth has curated a box designed to help you pamper yourself and your loved ones with do-it-yourself bath products.

Each Essential Oils Recipe Box comes with four essential oils and any additional necessities to help you follow along with the recipes created that fit the theme. This month, subscribers will receive the following:

Cinnamon Essential Oil (15mL)
Eucalyptus Essential Oil (15mL)
Lime Essential Oil (15mL)
Tranquility Essential Oil Blend (15mL)
Dried Lavender Flowers (0.1oz)
Powdered Whole Milk (4 Tbsp)
Fillable tea bag

There are six recipes created for the November box, and I enjoyed testing out a few of them.

Tranquility and Lime Diffuser Blend

I can admit that while I was familiar with oil diffusers, I've only recently picked one up. I was intrigued with the Simply Earth diffuser blends and wanted to enjoy the fragrances throughout my house. I actually really enjoy the Tranquility blend on its own, but the addition of the lime is delightful!

Oatmeal & Milk Bath

Soaking in the tub is one of my favorite self-care activities, and regrettably, it os one I never do enough. The Essential Oil Recipe Box already came with the powdered milk, and all I had to do was add oatmeal and baking soda. The recipe calls for the tea bag in the ingredients but the directions have no use for it. This wasn't the first recipe in the box like this. I didn't notice it in the previous boxes, but it does make some of the recipes confusing to follow.

Lime and Eucalyptus Roll On

The Simply Earth Roll On recipes are always so easy to follow and can be made in less than a minute. While I'm not opposed to longer recipes, I love when I get recipes that are super quick! This particular recipe is great because the roll on has an uplifting aroma that can help relieve congestion. With cold and flu season starting up, this is going to be living in my purse!

Eucalyptus Shower Steamers

These shower steamers were teased in last month's box, and this was the recipe I was probably the most excited to be trying. This was another one of those recipes that had a listed ingredient (lavender buds, in this case) but no use for them when it came to the recipe directions. In the end, I opted to toss them in prior to pressing in a silicone mold. After waiting for these to dry, I went to pop them out, and I just ended up with a powdery mess. While I followed the recipe closely, I found the mixture to be very dry. I wasn't surprised the steamers couldn't hold their shape. I was able to salvage the mess by collecting the powder and spritzing in with hazel until I got the texture of wet sand. I then pressed into the molds for them to dry before popping out. The downside of this technique is the witch hazel turned the lavender buds a brown shade. These steamers are fully functional, they just look less attractive. I don't think I'll be following this exact recipe again, although I will definitely continue to use this oil combination in another version! 

The last two remaining recipes are for Lavender Buds & Tranquility Milk Bath and Chai Tea Bath Salts. My bag of epsom salts ran away from me and I have to pick up a few additional ingredients for the chai tea bath salts.
