I received a box from Simply Earth in order to facilitate an honest review; All opinions are my own. This post contains affiliate links.

Hi, guys, I got my Simply Earth Essential Oil Recipe Box for July and this one is for the kids, which is perfect to help keep them busy this summer! It has all of the ingredients for 6 fun recipes, like a natural slime and fun bedtime bath & body stuff. I also have a code that will get you a Big Bonus Box and a $40 gift card to Simply Earth. My daughter and I had a blast unboxing it and making this super-easy DIY scented stress ball and we'll show you how to make one, too.

If you haven't seen one of my Simply Earth unboxings yet, the Essential Oil Recipe Box is a monthly curated box of 4 essential oils with containers and ingredients to make 6 essential oil recipes. They always have a timely theme and July's box is all about the kids, which is a great help to keep them busy this summer! If you'd like to see some of their past boxes, you can find all of my Simply Earth unboxings here.

There was something new on the outside of this month's box and I love it!

Hi, Cheryl!
Let's unbox it! As always, the box includes a pre-printed sticker sheet so that you can label your DIY creations and also label the tops of your new essential oil bottles.

DIY Scented Stress Ball
Source: Simply Earth


  • balloon
  • funnel
  • empty water bottle (or similar container)
  • 1 cup flour
  • 5 drops Tangerine Essential Oil
  • 5 drops Fir Needle Essential Oil
  • 3 drops Lavender Essential Oil


1. Pour the flour into the empty bottle using a funnel. If you don't have a funnel, you can also use a rolled sheet of paper.

2. Add the essential oils to the bottle and shake well. If the oils stick to the side of the container, give it a tap on the table to knock it loose into the flour.

3. Blow the balloon up first to stretch it out and let it deflate, then stretch the balloon over the bottle opening.

4. Shake and squeeze the flour mixture into the balloon. Pinch it off and remove the balloon from the bottle.

5. Gently allow any air to escape and tie it off.

Now you have a fun scented stress ball! They're so easy to make and a great tool for the kids to play with to help ease the day's stress, especially during school testing season. :)

If you liked the upcoming July box and wanted to grab it for yourself, you can get it for just $39! 

When you get the box, use my code SOUTHERNMOMGIFTFREE here: to also get the Big Bonus Box + a free $40 gift card to Simply Earth for some extra oils or ingredients to play with!
