I’ve always felt strongly about using homeopathy and aromatherapy. I feel better when I use them and I like the results. The trouble for me has been in the consistency of using them regularly. I use them sparingly (because darn it, if essential oils always seem so pricey!) and then I just don’t replenish them when I run out. Because well, they’re expensive, right?
I was so intrigued to find Simply Earth essential oils. Their essential oils are reasonably priced. And their special subscription box means a monthly delivery – the perfect way to replenish! With the Simply Earth “recipe box” subscription you’ll receive 4 pure essential oils plus extras. Check out my honest Simply Earth review and find out what I was able to make with my recipe box. And keep reading to find out how you can get a $40 gift card on purchases from Simply Earth!
I received two complimentary Simply Earth Recipe Boxes to facilitate this review. I have not received any additional compensation. Please note that I do have affiliate links in this post. If you click through and make a purchase, I will receive compensation, thank you.
What’s Inside the Box?

Simply Earth Review – Recipe Box Pros & Cons

- The price is great for the amount of things you receive in the box
- Knowing that the essential oils are high grade quality for 100% purity
- Subscription can be cancelled at any time
- Free shipping
- Not all of the extras to create the recipes is included. Some ingredients you might have on hand, others you may need to purchase
- You may not want a full sized bottle of an oil you don’t plan on using again
January Simply Earth Recipe Box
I made and used four of the six recipes in the January box right away. I don’t own a diffuser and didn’t have one of the ingredients on hand, so I haven’t used the other two recipes yet. The roll-on oils are in my daily rotation and I’ve really enjoyed them. The scent is pleasant and I like the feel on my skin (too soon to know how effective they are at eye bags or wrinkles yet!)
The Curb Hunger recipe (called “Fit Roll-On” in the recipe cards) really does work immediately though! I’ve been keeping it in the pantry and I rub a little oil on when I feel a craving coming on!
The Mud Mask is another hit. I’m glad that the recipe box comes with ingredients to make these items several times over if you wish. My husband and I both enjoyed the after effects of this mask on our skin.
February Simply Earth Recipe Box
I was so excited to see some of my favorite oils inside the February box, including lemon and Defender. I’d never heard of Ravensara but it has quickly become another favorite! It’s quite versatile and has a wonderful aroma. I was already able to make a sore muscles roll on, germ cleaner, vapor chest roll on and warts be gone. Looking forward to making the shower disks – those are going to be such a wake-me-up!
The Simply Pure Promise
Simply Earth is on a mission to make it easy and affordable for people to have a natural home while giving 13% of their profits to help end human trafficking. Simply Earth sources their oils from around the world in order to get the purest and highest quality possible. With thyme from France, sandalwood from Australia to balsam from Canada, there is even a map on their site to see where the oils come from.
Simple Earth has carefully and ethically chosen region where each particular plant will thrive. They work directly with the farmers to ensure plants are harvested safely and fairly. Natural essential oils are collected through either cold-pressing or steam-distillation. And every batch is tested to ensure 100% purity. And they back it with a 365 day satisfaction guarantee.
Why Use Essential Oils?
In addition to the Simply Earth Recipe Box, the company also sells individual bottles of essential oil, roll-ons, and carrier oils. At a practical price of $9.99 for a 15ml bottle of lavender essential oil, there’s no reason not to have that on hand – lavender oil has so many wonderful uses! My favorite way to use lavender oil is by adding to a carrier oil and rubbing on the bottoms of my kids feet at night. It’s so relaxing with a gentle massage and truly seems to help them sleep better.
My family has found that tea tree, lemon and peppermint are great to have as well. You can use essential oils to flavor foods and water, to mix with a carrier oil and apply to skin, to add to natural cleaning products (like vinegar) and to diffuse in the air for aromatherapy. A touch of peppermint oil rubbed on my temples is a lifesaver when I start to feel a headache coming on!
My January box didn’t have labels for the items I made so I had to use my own label maker. The February box included sticker labels to cut and add onto the bottles, which was a bonus!
Simply Earth also offers a diffuser, wooden storage box for your oil collection and wool dryer balls. We already use dryer balls and I’ve never thought to keep essential oils in the laundry room! What a perfect way to scent the laundry instead of dryer sheets. Surrounding myself with natural scents is something that I find really calms and centers me.
Essential Oils Don’t Have to Be Expensive!
After making essential oil purchases in the past, I got the impression that truly good essential oils cost more. But I’ve learned after using Simply Earth that this isn’t true. Simply Earth offers excellent, high-quality oils at prices everyone can afford.
