Essential Oils are said to have a lot of benefits but in order for them to truly work for you, you need to know how to use them properly. To be honest, I have only used essential oils in diffusers and DIY air fresheners and well, that’s about it. Also, I have only used a couple of essential oils as let’s face it – they can be pretty expensive.
I have always been eager to learn more ways in which I can incorporate various essential oils and use them in and around my home. I mean, if you can reap the benefits of chemical-free products and avoid all the toxic smells by using essential oils, why not use them to our advantage right? So when I was approached by Simply Earth’s team to try out their subscription box, I was absolutely thrilled!

Unboxing Simply Earth’s Recipe Box
As soon as I got the package in the mail, I was so excited to open the box! Since this was my first time, I got their regular box as well as the Bonus Box (as I mentioned above, the Bonus Box is included along with your first Box)
Firstly let’s see what was included in the Bonus Box –
4 oz. Coconut Oil (100% Pure carrier oil)
4 oz. Almond Oil (100% Purecarrier oil)
Cold Pressed Coconut Oil
Beeswax – 2 oz pack
Six roll-on bottles and six bottles (to store the blends that you create)
Coming to August’s Essential Oil Recipe Box, these were the oils that were included to help you create your clear, glowing and beautiful skin –
Clove Essential Oil
Frankincense Essential Oil
Rosemary Essential Oil
Clear Skin Essential Oil Blend
100% pure Lavender Hydrosol
The box also came with 6 easy recipes -like a face scrub recipe, a moisturizing face cream recipe, a feel good morning diffuser and more. Along with this, they have given a couple of helpful tips in ways which you can use these essential oils.
Of course, the next step after opening their box was to try out the recipes that were included in the box. The recipes are super simple (they are so damn easy – you can literally make them in under 2 minutes) and come with clear instructions.
This Rosemary Facial steam is one of my favorites out of the six recipes since it is so easy and instantly makes you feel sooo good. Just a drop of Rosemary essential oil in hot water and you can relax and enjoy the steam for 5-10 minutes. It smells divine and makes you feel relaxed. Can I just say I’m hooked?!
