While I love autumn (i.e. sweater and PSL weather), I always fall prey to seasonal headaches and sore muscles. Do you feel the same? If so, the recipes and oils in the Simply Earth October 2022 box are easy to use and can provide quick relief. I can’t wait to share them with you.
Last month, we went over a few essential oil recipes that help boost your immune system. This month, we’re knocking out sore muscles, headaches, and helping your body fight bacteria.
Let’s check out this super helpful recipe box together!
Why You Should Try Simply Earth Essential Oils
If you’re new to Simply Earth or you’ve been contemplating trying their oils, let me be the one to whisper in your ear, just do it.
I love this company. I love their oils.
Here’s a few reasons why:
- They are a bargain!! Simply Earth oils are about half the price as MLM companies
- Simply Earth oils are pure: no additives.
- Their oils are tested according to industry standards. You can find the GC/MS test results on their website.
- Ingredients are ethically farmed.
- Oils are professionally extracted in their own commercial kitchen
- Simply Earth donates 13% of their profits to charities!
Now, Simply Earth sells a sleuth of essential oils, diffusers, and other supplies individually, but the product we will look at in this post is the recipe box. This is a monthly subscription box that gives you 4 essential oils, 6 recipes, and 2-3 bonus goodies.
All for $39 (if you’re new to the essential oil game, this is a really good price).

Since the theme is home remedies, these oils primarily focuses on relieving inflammation, aches, pains, and, of course, general boo-boos.
First of all, what the heck is a bergamot? A bergamot is a type of citrus fruit from Italy. It produces a very unique scent. Think citrus with a hint of floral. Like many citrus oils, bergamot is a photosensitive essential oil. Be careful applying before you head out into the sunlight.
Now, what is bergamot good for? Many essential oil users apply it topically to reduce inflammation and pain. It also works great as a stress reliever.
This is a Brazilian oil that also aids with inflammation and pain relief. Some research (practiced on mice, not humans) showed decreased pain responses for those suffering from MS. Copaiba is also a great detoxifying agent and studies have shown that reduces the spread of bacteria. I really like that it has a subtle scent similar to tea tree oil.
Speaking of tea tree oil, let’s talk about an oil very similar. Cajeput can be used to promote respiration (it’s a great expectorant) and it kills bacteria.
The scent is very unique. I detect a slightly fruity undertone that is a little more pleasant that eucalyptus.
I predict you’ll use this one for everything from cleaning products to face masks. The Relief Blend smells so fresh and uplifting!
Relief is a mix of eucalyptus, copaiba, peppermint (this is the strongest scent I detect) juniper berry, & rosemary essential oils.
I’m sure you already know all about peppermint, copaiba, and eucalyptus, so let’s talk about the benefits of juniper berry and rosemary. Rosemary is great to use if you suffer from arthritis. It increases blood flow, circulation, and decreases inflammation. It’s also great for memory function.
Juniper berry is most used for calming the nervous system and easing sore joints.
I love that Simply Earth included a soap mold this month! It is so ridiculously easy to make DIY essential oil soap. I can’t wait to show you how! This soap mold is actually specifically for creating massage soap bars.
Natural Lotion Base
How would you like to ease your aching muscles while hydrating your skin? You’re going to love the lotion base. Simply Earth also sells it a la carte in 8oz jars, but this 1 oz. jar allows you to simply add the oils and go.
Reusable Hot and Cold Compress Pad
I was really intrigued by the compress pad! I suffer from headaches semi-regularly (#momlife, haha) and this compress pad sounds divine. It’s good for both cold compresses and heat compresses.

Simply Earth October 2022 Recipe Box Tutorials
- 1 tsp fractionated coconut oil
- 1 drop copaiba essential oil
- 1 drop relief essential oil blend
- Reusable compress pad
- ¼ cup cold or hot water
I love my kids, but sometimes it feels like I have a perpetual headache. I am sooo excited to use this compress.
Making it was so easy.
Just mix the fractionated (liquid) coconut oil and essential oils in a bowl. Add cold water for a cold compress, or hot water for a warm compress. Simply saturate your compress and squeeze out the water. Viola.
Muscle Tamer Massage Bar
- 1 Tbsp almond oil
- 2 Tbsp coconut oil (solid)
- 2 Tbsp beeswax
- 30 Drops Relief Essential Oil Blend
- 15 Drops Cajeput Essential Oil Blend
- 15 Drops Copaiba Essential Oil Blend
Melt the almond oil, coconut oil, and beeswax in a double-broiler or microwaveable bowl. I used the microwave and stirred every 10 seconds. Using short intervals is really important.
Stir the melted waxes until well-mixed, then allow the mixture to cool just a little. Ideally, you want the edges to harden a little. If you let it harden too much (like I did), you’ll need to reheat.
Add the essential oils.
Pour the mixture into the mold and allow it to cool for about an hour. Once it has hardened COMPLETELY, you can remove the soap from the mold.
Easy, right? Keep it in your shower and use it after a workout or a long day of work.
Sports Relief Lotion
- 1 Drop Copaiba Essential Oil
- 2 Drops Bergamot Essential Oil
- 1 oz. Simply Earth lotion base
Do you suffer from arthritis? Cramps after working out? I hope this lotion helps! Simply stir in the essential oils to the lotion base. And use as needed
