1StopMom was provided with free product for review purposes. Opinions 100% my own.
I was very happy when Simply Earth asked me to review their monthly subscription box. This one is a little bit different because it involves essential oils. Essential oils are natural oils typically obtained by distillation and having the characteristic fragrance of the plant or other source from which it is extracted.
They are used in various ways including aromatherapy to support mental health, in bath and beauty products and natural cleaning solutions. I have used a few different oils in the past. Mostly Lavender and Peppermint. I love to use Peppermint essential oil. I made a spray solution I use to keep ants out of our home. It works very well. I even add a few drops to my mop water.
Simply Earth sent me a diffuser and their November subscription box to review.
Simply Earth is a company started by a Wisconsin family whose mission is to make it easy and affordable to create a safe home with natural products. Their purpose is building Simply Earth to be company that loves and serves their employees, customers and the World. One way they love and serve is by giving 13% of their profits to organization that are fighting to end human trafficking.
Essential Oil Diffuser
A diffuser is a great way to get different aromas in the air from your essential oils.
This diffuser came with a top cover, inside cover, measuring cup and a DC jack. It is very easy to use:
- Place diffuser on a flat surface
- Remove both covers and pour water into the diffuser using the measuring cup
- Add 2-3 drops of essential oils
- Put both covers back on
- Plug in diffuser and turn on
There is a easy to use button on the bottom of the diffuser to control the lights and how long you want it to be on. I like that there is a sleep mode.
You don’t have to worry about the diffuser running when the water is all gone. It automatically shuts itself off when there is a limited amount of water in the tank.

This subscription box makes it very easy to get started. Each month you are sent 6-7 essential oil recipes and the key ingredients you need to make them. There is no guess work at all! In the November box you will receive:
- Recipe cards
- Rosemary Essential Oil
- Pine Essential Oil
- Happy Joy Essential Oil
- Frankincense Essential Oil blend
- Curb Hunger roll on oil blend
- 2 small bottles
- 1 spray bottle

I really like that each bottle of essential oil from Simply Earth includes information I would otherwise be looking up online. It tells you what country it comes from, what part of the plant it is, the ingredients and the aroma.
Rosemary Essential Oil
Rosemary essential oil has a woody and herbal aroma, like trees. It can be used for mental clarity while relieving fatigue. It can also help with hair growth. There is a recipe for Christmas Air Freshener that uses Pine and Rosemary essential oil included in the box.
Frankincense Essential Oil
Frankincense essential oil has a spicy and woody aroma. It can be used with a carrier oil like coconut oil on wrinkles. Use in a diffuser to help with insomnia and promote sleep. It helps to reduce and fade scars. There is a recipe for DIY Scented Ornaments using this oil in the box.
Happy Joy Essential Oil Blend
The Happy Joy essential oil blend has a fruity floral aroma. It is used to uplift your mood and reduce anxiety. It is made of Geranium, Sweet Orange, Neroli, Grapefruit and Ylang Ylang essential oils. I have used this in my diffuser and I love the scent! It kept me pretty calm too.
Pine Essential Oil
The Pine essential oil has a evergreen and woody aroma. It reminds of a certain floor cleaner that I grew up smelling. Now I will be making my own. The woody aroma also makes me think about Christmas and the holidays! This oil can be used in a diffuser to relax your body and energize your mind. It also has disinfecting properties so you can add it to your toilet bowl or make some household cleaner with it.
Curb Hunger Roll On
Curb Hunger is a roll on made up of a blend of different oils. The ingredients are Grapefruit, Spearmint and Lavender essentials oils diluted in Coconut Oil. I have been using for a few days. So far I have noticed I am not as hungry when I use it, I definitely like that. All you do is rub a little on your stomach. Very easy to use!
I really like this subscription box. It is unique and only costs $39.99 a month. I love that each month there is a different theme. The recipe cards are use the oils that are included in the box. The oils are 100% pure so there is no need to worry about additives or fillers. I think it is a great way to grow your essential oil collection. I like the idea of controlling strong of a scent my creations will have. Plus it nice to know what I am using is safe. I am already excited for next month!
The Simply Earth Essential Oil Recipe Box is different from most subscription boxes because they offer a 100% Money Back Guarantee. If you are not happy, just let them know. Simply Earth gives 13% of their profits to organizations committed to serving others. I definitely can support a company that gives back to the community.
