Did you know that fragrances and perfumed in beauty products don’t have to show the full list of ingredients, which may contain chemicals that have been linked to allergic reactions and hormone imbalances?
Now that I’ve sufficiently scared you, I want to introduce essential oils, which are a safe and natural alternative.
The best part? Essential Oils are super affordable and versatile. You can mix them with a variety of ingredients and create a myriad of beauty and household products that smell delicious and are totally safe for you and your family (and your pets if you’re a fur mama like me).
Enter Simply Earth, who kindly sent me their Essential Oil recipe box to try out and review for you. Use the link HERE and the coupon code TEPHWILLIAMSFREE for a $40 gift card and free essential oil (see below for details).
The timing was perfect because I was thinking about trying essential oils as a natural alternative anyway. My sister has been a fan for years and it seemed the right way to go.
You can buy essential oils at practically any natural grocery store, but Simply Earth, is a great option because the essential oils are super affordable and their subscription box comes with essential oils PLUS practically everything you need to create some awesome, natural recipes!
You can choose to receive the box monthly or quarterly and each box is themed to the season. For example, the box they sent me is back to school themed and the recipes are all about focusing and de-stressing (which is perfect for pretty much anyone, not just people going back to school).
The recipes included in this video are:
- Rise and shine diffuser blend
- Do your homework diffuser blend
- Get Focused Roll-On
- Immune Boosting Inhaler
- Backpack Freshener
- Stress Relieving Dough Ball
You can of course make any of these recipes with items you have at home, Simply Earth just makes it super easy (and did I mention addordable?).
Note: this is the August Simply Earth box, so the box is no longer available. If you don’t want to miss out in future make sure to subscribe for future boxes!
