Get Your Cozy On with Essential Oil
If you like the idea of soaking in a cozy, creamy milk bath, or just want a great smelling house without the chemicals, give Simply Earth Essential Oil Recipe Boxes a try!
(Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links and I received the products free of charge in exchange for this review. But the opinions are my own.)
Today I am writing about my 3rd shipment of a subscription box from Simply Earth. They offer a monthly collection of essential oils (plus extras) that help you make natural body care or related products easily at home. Last month, I had so much fun making candles and lip balm, that I was excited to get the chance to do something new.
Each monthly box has a theme and what better topic for November than Bath and Shower! As the cold winds blow, I’ll be sinking down into a warm scented milk bath. Surrounded by the candles I made from my October Simply Earth box!
That should help me forget that winter (and chapped skin and …) is on the way!
Yes, as a green blogger, I love having ready access to essential oils, especially at a discount. And they tell me that this month’s $39 box, if bought at DoTerra prices, would have cost $112. Isn’t that a deal!
Yes, if you are careful about what your family uses, this is sooo worth looking into.
What’s in a box…
The November box contains the following items:
- Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil.
- Eucalyptus Essential Oil
- Tranquility Essential Oil Blend
- Lime Essential Oil
- Dried Lavender Buds
- Powdered Milk
- Pre-printed labels
It also includes a collection of recipes to help you use them–see below for what I’ve been doing.
PLUS, every new subscriber gets an additional special offer–for free (I got mine my first month)! It’s a bonus box with even more supporting products. Things like bottles and carrier oils that will help you make future recipes. My bonus box contained:
• 6 small Amber Bottles
• 6 Amber Roll-On Bottles
• 1 bag of Beeswax Pellets
• 12 oz. Jar of Solid Coconut Oil
• 4 oz. Bottle of Liquid Coconut Oil
• 4 oz. Bottle of Almond Oil
This brings the full value to over $150. All for the regular $39 box price (a deal in itself!).
Even better, for a limited time, I have a code that will get you $40 off on a future box. That means your first month is a great deal–and your second month could be free. How fun is that!

This month I did a coziness project!
And isn’t cozy the perfect mindset for impending winter (shhh)? So far, I’ve made the Chai Tea Bath Salts and a Lime Eucalyptus Roll on.
The Bath Salts use spices from your pantry (I didn’t have star anise so I substituted Allspice) and magnesium rich Epsom salts. (see here for a study of absorption if you are a medical news junkie). The bath smelled so warm and inviting and made for a super relaxing soak that was perfect after mid-term exams!
The Lime Eucalyptus Roll-on combined two of my favorite scents. It’s really a pick me up during a long day. Gotta love that aromatherapy!
Now just as a “heads up” the December box is focused on gift giving. If you like making homemade gifts, this may be the perfect time to subscribe. Or consider a gift subscription for someone special.
Part of the motivation for the founders of this company was the challenge experienced sourcing good quality natural products. They comment:
With the safety of your home in mind, we’re meticulous about every step of our process. To make sure each plant reaches its potential, we carefully and ethically choose a region where it will thrive. Then we work with our farmers. When our plants have reached maturity, they are harvested safely and fairly. From there we collect their natural essential oils through either cold-pressing or steam-distillation. Every batch is then tested to ensure 100% purity.
Yes, Simply Earth is so confident in their quality they offer a 365 day guarantee! Plus they donate 13% of their profits to charity.
To recap…. For a limited time, you can subscribe to a $39/mo essential oil recipe box using my referral link and code ARTOFNATURALLIVINGFREE to get:
• Your first monthly box
• A new subscriber bonus box
• $40 off a future box
If you are thinking about getting started with essential oils, want to make some fun products for the home/gifts or just want the best smelling house, you should give it a try!
- Easy Book Club Chili
- Pickled Red Onions – No Sugar
Did they include caveats with the box about the oils and Epsom salts? Doterra have just launched here at ten times the price of our local oils which is ridiculous.
Yes, the recipe dilutes the essential oil (just a couple drops) with a teaspoon of almond oil to make sure they are well-dispersed. Wow you have local essential oils available–how cool!
These packages are great! Using natural essential oil is so much better than the store bought ones with all the chemicals. Your lime eucalyptus roll on sounds wonderful! Dried eucalyptus is one my favorite scents.
