What is the Simply Earth Subscription

I received this month’s recipe box from Simply Earth free of charge to facilitate this review.
If you’re totally new to Simply Earth, I’m so glad that I’m the one to tell you about them. Since I was introduced to the brand in August, I’ve become somewhat of a fan-girl.
Before using their products, I think I could be labelled as an essential oil dabbler. That is, I used a dab here, a dab there, of whatever random oils I purchased from Amazon or Wal-Mart. I had no idea about different levels of purity, ethical farming, extraction methods, or any of that. And, if I’m perfectly honest, I had no idea how powerful essential oils were or why I needed to buy quality products.
Then there’s Simply Earth.
Simply Earth manufacturers 100% pure essential oils for a fraction of the cost of its competitors. And, seriously, I do mean a fraction of the cost.
Their main business model involves cutting out the middle man. Meaning, they work directly with the responsible, international farmers that grow their plants. Then, after harvesting ethically, Simply Earth manufactures their oils in their own commercial kitchen in Wisconsin. The end result is, you’re buying trustworthy essential oils for a significantly reduced price.
Simply Earth’s goal is to help their customers gradually create a toxin-free home home with the help of essential oils. In my opinion, they are the best brand to use if you’re serious about using essential oils.
But that’s not why I’m crazy about them.
When you buy Simply Earth, you’re not just buying their products. You’re buying the brand. Simply Earth is just a good company. They donate 13% of their profits to organizations dedicated to fighting against human trafficking.
So, not only are you reducing the toxins in your own home and saving the earth by purchasing ethically-farmed plants, but you’re actively fighting against human trafficking! How incredibly cool is that?

Simply Earth Recipe Box
Simply Earth’s most popular product (and the best way to save on essential oils) is their monthly subscription service, or the “monthly recipe box.” The goal behind the recipe box is to help you gradually create a toxin-free home.
The recipe box includes 4 full-sized essential oils, 6 essential oil recipes, and a couple bonuses that vary depending on the month’s theme.
Okay, what do I mean by theme? Since their mission is to help you create a toxin-free home, each recipe box has a theme.
For example, the last box I reviewed, the August 2019 box, focused on creating all-natural skin products. Before that, Simply Earth sent out recipes for fun, all-natural projects for kids.
The box is $39 a month, and you can pause or cancel your subscription at any time. By itself, this is honestly a great deal. However, if you’re a new subscriber and you use my code, BABYLANDFREE, you’ll also receive the bonus box (more on that in a minute) and a $40 eGift Card for future purchases.

Okay, I think that covers the basics of what you need to know about Simply Earth and their subscription boxes. Let’s dig into the meat of this Simply Earth November 2019 box review.
What’s Included in the Simply Earth November 2019 Box
I think Simply Earth definitely tapped into every busy mom’s tired, cranky soul for the November box.
This month’s theme is relaxation via luxurious baths, steamers, and roll-ons, which is perfect for one of the busiest months of the year.
Having said that, the relaxation theme isn’t my favorite aspect of the box. Several of the oils included with the box contain medicinal properties. And, what’s the one thing moms dread more than shopping in November? That’s right…family illnesses. If you love using essential oils to fight against viruses and other seasonal illnesses, I think you will really appreciate the oils included in this month’s box:
- Cinnamon Oil: Cinnamon oil is known for its energizing properties. It can help increase circulation, improve digestion, and relieve stress. Plus, this oil smells so good. I combined it with my August box’s Clove essential oil to create a delicious-smelling diffuser blend.
- Tranquility Oil: A mix of lemon, patchouli, orange, amyris, and ylang ylang, this blend can relieve stress and even disinfect the air.
- Eucalyptus Oil: Prone to seasonal congestion? You’re going to love eucalyptus oil. It has a sharp, tangy scent (kind of like tea tree) and, when applied to your chest, can work excellently as a decongestant.
- Lime Oil: Lime smells great, but it’s also a handy oil to keep close by. It’s known for its calming effects, and may even serve as an antifungal, antimicrobial, and provide decent protection against viruses.
When I researched these oils in more detail, I found that all of them are linked with stress-reduction and energy improvement.
In addition to the oils, you’ll also receive:
- Whole Milk Powdered Milk
- Lavender Buds
- Tea Bag
- 6 Relaxation-Themed Recipes
The Bonus Box
Now, if this is your first subscription order, you can expect the bonus box as well! Basically, the bonus box includes everything you’ll need to mix your future recipes. This box is massive, a heck of a deal (the value is $50), and it includes:
- 6 5ml amber glass bottles
- 6 10ml roll-on amber glass bottles
- 2oz beeswax
- 12oz coconut oil (solid)
- 4oz carrier coconut oil
- 4oz carrier almond oil
Keep in mind that you’ll also receive a new bonus box every six recipe boxes so you never have to worry about running out of supplies (unless you’re mixing oils like a mad scientist 😉 )
What I Love About This Month’s Box
Honestly, I loved all of the recipes in this month’s box and I can’t wait to try them out. The recipes are easy and fun to make, but they’re also super effective.
Still, as a busy, working mom, I was most drawn to the easy two-minute recipes. That’s what we’re going to go over below.
Eucalyptus and Lime Roll-On
Since I received the box, I’ve used the eucalyptus and lime roll-on every day. I just dab a few drops behind my ears and wrists for a quick pick-me-up for the morning or before I go shopping with my toddler (because we all know shopping in November with a toddler requires an ample amount of energy).
Keep in mind that you can totally use this roll-on as a decongestant as well.
Lavender Buds and Tranquility Bath
The lavender buds and tranquility bath is as heavenly as it sounds. Exactly what the doctor ordered for a windy November day!
My favorite part about this recipe is that it was SO easy to make. I already had the ingredients in my pantry, and as the recipe card advised, it literally took me two minutes.
The bath was so relaxing and as an added bonus, my skin felt so soft afterwards.
Tranquility and Lime Diffuser Blend
This is another recipe that I’ve used every day since I received the box. Usually, I add a few drops of rosemary to my diffuser (from my August box), but the tranquility and lime blend offered a pleasant, relaxing scent that whittled away my excess stress. I believe that’s because the main ingredients in the tranquility blend include patchouli, amyris, and ylang ylang, which are linked with calming anxieties and depression relief.
I also love the antiseptic properties of this recipe. If you’re really trying to keep your home cold-free, the recipe contains essential oils known for fighting viruses, bacteria, and mold.
