Simply Earth Essential Oil Recipe Box {January 2020} Unboxing + DIY Lemonwood Refresh Spray Recipe!

Friday, December 27, 2019

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

Hey, guys! I'm here with a sneak peek unboxing of the Simply Earth Essential Oil Recipe Box for January 2020 (it's going to be a brand new decade!!!) and it includes 4 wonderful oils and 6 fun essential oil recipes with ingredients and extras that are perfect for the new year.

I also have a code that will get you a Big Bonus Box and a $40 gift card to Simply Earth. Keep reading for that code + the recipe & instructions to make a gorgeous DIY Lemonwood Refresh Spray to help you get your home smelling fresh and clean for the new year!

This Refresh Spray smells so incredibly good and contains lemon oil and a new one that came in this month's box that I had never heard of, but I loved instantly! It's a spray that can be used to refresh the air or your fabrics and furniture.

If you haven't seen Simply Earth yet, the Essential Oil Recipe Box is a monthly curated box of 4 essential oils with containers and ingredients to make 6-7 essential oil recipes. 

They always have a timely theme and January's box is stuffed with recipes to help refresh, relax, and relieve.

They send me these boxes before they're up for sale to give you guys a peek at what will be available in the upcoming month, so if you like the box I'm showing you, wait until the beginning of the month to order it. Just make sure you don't wait too long because these boxes have been selling out around mid-month!

If you'd like to see some of their past boxes, you can find all of my Simply Earth unboxings hereNow, let's unbox this month's box!

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.

The recipe cards included in this month's box are:

  • Relief Roll-On
  • Circulation Boost Body Butter
  • Relax & Detox Foot Bath
  • Meditation Diffuser Blend
  • Relief Massage Oil
  • Refresh Spray
I hereby dub this month Self-Careuary.

Also included in the box is a small amber plastic squeeze bottle...

...a 2 oz. amber plastic spray bottle...

...and a 2 oz. bottle of 100% pure Avocado Oil! I've never used avocado oil but I know it's supposed to be very soothing and moisturizing so I'm excited about this one! My skin has been crazy dry!

The Essential Oils included in this month's box are:

The total value of this month's oils is $46.96!

These are the perfect oils for the New Year! The Lemon is refreshing and can also be used in cleaning recipes and in the diffuser to freshen the room, Sage is one of my favorites and I love making a citrus and sage mix to diffuse, and the Relief Blend is good to rub on or use in a bath.

Ho Wood is one that I hadn't heard of before, but it smells amazing! It's a citrusy/floraly/woodsy scent and I'm in love!!! Its properties on the site are listed as cooling, supportive to the immune system, helps reduce swelling, and aids in aches of muscle and joints. I just can't stop smelling it!

I am so happy with this month's box. It's a great way to start the new year! Now, let's make something cool.
