Simply Earth Essential Oils: A Review of Their Essential Oil Recipe Box
Curious about Simply Earth essential oils? If you’ve not tried them yet, here’s a breakdown of what to expect. Plus natural essential oil recipes and essential oil diffuser blends you can make using the Simply Earth essential oils in the Simply Earth essential oil recipe box.
Eucalyptus Essential Oil Is the Bomb
The November Simply Earth Essential Oil Recipe Box couldn’t have arrived at a better time. Caught in the throes of either a) seasonal allergies gone array or b) a nasty cold virus that latched on during a night out, I’d been sniffling for a few days. I’d finally resolved with myself that I needed to do something other than take medication that simply masked my symptoms. And quite quickly scolded myself for not drinking apple cider vinegar shots sooner.
The second day on an ACV regimen and the crud that had been dripping down my throat simply stopped. While Umcka Cold + Flu helped relieve my other symptoms. It was the eucalyptus essential oil from the new Simply Earth box, however, that was my saving grace. Having run out of eucalyptus essential oil the last time I made DIY shower steamers, and my menthol crystals in hiding since another recent move, it made the perfect addition to my cold fighting arsenal.
Admittedly, I STILL do not have an essential oil diffuser. It’s on my list of things to buy. The problem, I get overwhelmed by reviews and I’m never certain I’m going to purchase the best one. Or at the very least the one that works and doesn’t break in the first week. So rather than add eucalyptus essential oil to a diffuser, I added a few drops to my morning shower each day. It really worked wonders at clearing out all the gunk that accumulated overnight in my nasal passages. And truly it was a godsend once I got a nosebleed. Saline spray, by the way, burns like hell in an open wound.
Simply Earth Essential Oils: The Breakdown
Luckily, Simply Earth sells a top rated contemporary and elegantly designed diffuser that’s on my must buy list. It combines the benefits of aromatherapy, aqua therapy and light therapy and it has a built in time as well. Not to mention, if you order their November essential oil box, you’ll not only get a free bonus box with all kinds of goodies you can use with your essential oils, but you also get a $40 off coupon for your next order. No restrictions. So you can literally turn right around and buy their diffuser at $40 off! (Just use coupon code: SOAPDELIFREE.) Or, if you’re way ahead of the game, you can use it on anything else you like. Maybe the December box? Or ingredients for recipes? You can even use it to purchase those must have essential oils that are missing from your collection.
November Simply Earth Essential Oil Recipe Box: What’s Inside
The November Simply Earth Essential Oils Recipe Box arrived with four essential oils: Eucalyptus essential oil, Cinnamon (Leaf) essential oil, Lime essential oil and a Tranquility essential oil blend. In addition to the four essential oils, the November box also contained a muslin bag, lavender buds, powdered whole milk and a sticker sheet to label your finished products. Six essential oil recipes are also included. There are recipes for making the following:
- Oatmeal & Milk Bath Recipe
- Tranquility & Lime Essential Oil Diffuser Blend Recipe
- Chai Tea Bath Salts Recipe
- Lavender Buds & Tranquility Milk Bath Recipe
- Lime & Eucalyptus Roller Ball Essential Oil Blend Recipe
- Eucalyptus Shower Steamers Recipe
My favorite essential oil in November’s Simply Earth Essential Oil Recipe Box – aside from the eucalyptus – is definitely the Tranquility essential oil blend. This natural essential oil blend helps to calm and relieve anxiety. It’s made using a blend of lemon, patchouli, orange, amyris and ylang ylang essential oils.

Now let’s get crafty!

3 drops Simply Earth Eucalyptus essential oil
10 mL fractionated coconut oil
Add the Simply Earth essential oils to a 10 mL rollerball bottle. Swirl to mix.
Then fill the bottle the rest of the way with the fractionated coconut oil.
Now firmly insert the rollerball top into the bottle and screw on the cap.
To use simply apply the essential oil blend to pulse points for energy, congestion relief and an uplifting aroma.
Eucalyptus Shower Steamers Recipe
1/2 cup baking soda
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 teaspoon lavender buds
5 drops Simply Earth Eucalyptus essential oil
5 drops Simply Earth Lime essential oil
In a glass bowl, heat the coconut oil just until melted. You can either use a double boiler or a microwave. (To heat in the microwave, heat in 10 second increments.)
Once melted, add the Simply Earth essential oils to the melted coconut oil and stir to combine.
Now add the baking soda and lavender buds to the melted coconut oil. Mix until crumbly.
Next, press the shower steamers mixture into an ice cube tray or a ice cube silicone mold.
Finally, allow the shower steamers to dry for 24 hours. Then release from the mold and store in a sealed container.
To use the eucalyptus shower steamers, simply place one shower steamer in the bottom of your shower. Then shower as normal.
