Southern Mom Loves: Simply Earth Essential Oil Recipe Box {January 2019} Unboxing + Rejuvenating Lip Balm Recipe!

Simply Earth Essential Oil Recipe Box {January 2019} Unboxing + Rejuvenating Lip Balm Recipe!

Thursday, January 3, 2019

I received an Essential Oil Recipe Box from Simply Earth in order to facilitate a post. All opinions are my own. This post contains affiliate links.

I got my Essential Oil Recipe Box for January and I was super-excited to unbox it! It's full of natural skincare recipes to help combat this harsh winter weather. I love making natural products and these are all about relaxing, renewing, and healing; Just my speed for 2019. I'll show you everything that I got in the unboxing and give you the recipe for the Rejuvenating Lip Balm, plus show you how to make it step-by-step below!

If you didn't catch my last (and first) unboxing for the Simply Earth Essential Oil Recipe Box, it's a monthly subscription box that encourages you to create a natural, healthy home by giving you everything you need to make your own natural beauty, cleaning, and home fragrance products, one month at a time. Each box is a $150 value for only $39/month!

On top of that, you get the FREE Big Bonus Box every 6 months that contains all of the extras you'll need over the next 6 months, like extra glass jars, bottles, and roll-ons, liquid carrier oils, and packages like beeswax and solid coconut oil. The whole shebang is a fabulous value!

Essential Oil Recipe Box Unboxing-January 2019

First out are a sheet of stickers. These come in handy labeling all of your jars and bottles for the month's recipes. It also comes with little bottle-top labels for your 4 essential oil bottles.

This month's fab 4 are Farewell Scars, Bergamot, Ravensara, & Myrrh 100% pure Essential Oils.

To give you an idea of how much of a discount you're getting, here are the prices of the oils individually:

  • Farewell Scars 15ml - $17.99
  • Bergamot 15ml - $13.99
  • Ravensara 15 ml - $14.99
  • Myrrh 5 ml- $17.99

That's a total of $64.96 in essential oils alone!

Each box also comes with 6 recipe cards, and with the theme of Natural Skincare, the recipes included are:
  1. Lip Rejuvenating Lip Balm
  2. Calming and Uplifting Body Butter
  3. Relaxing Textured Massage Bar
  4. Skin Renewal Sugar Scrub
  5. Skin Healing Booster Roll On
  6. Confidence Diffuser Blend

Next out was this adorable flexible silicone mold. I love that they send molds that can be used again and again! Besides the massage bar, this would also be great for melt-and-pour soaps. They would all come out stamped "100% Hand Made". <3

It came with 2 lip balm tubes (the included recipe makes 2, so you can keep one and gift one!)

Last out was a package of Tapioca Pearls for the massage bar. There are enough here to do a few!

For the Lip Balm, you'll need a few things from your Big Bonus Box: the almond oil, the solid coconut oil, and the package of beeswax.

If you don't have a double boiler, don't worry! You can set one up by placing a glass or metal bowl over a small pot with a few inches of water in the bottom. You bring the water to a boil and place the bowl with your ingredients in it on top of the pot. This will gently melt your ingredients. :)

Makes: 2 twist tubes of balm



1. Measure out the beeswax, solid coconut oil, and almond oil and place in a metal or glass bowl.

2. Place the bowl over a double boiler until the ingredients are completely melted.

3. Add in the essential oil and stir well.

4. Carefully pour the mixture into 2 twist-up lip balm tubes and allow to cool completely.

Once cooled, you can use your labels to finish up your lip balm. :)

These boxes have been so much fun to dive into and I love being given all of the tools I'll need to make all of these natural products. Because they're natural, I have no qualms about making these with (and for) my daughter.

You can subscribe to the monthly Essential Oil Recipe Box here for $39/month. You'll receive the Big Bonus Box with your first month's recipe box and then again every 6 months. You can also use my code SOUTHERNMOMGIFTFREE to get a free $20 gift card to the site as well!

If you want this one, act fast; The Christmas box sold out in 2 weeks!
