Simply Earth Essential Oil Recipe Box {March 2020} Unboxing & Code + DIY Reed Diffuser!

Tuesday, February 25, 2020

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 March 2020 and the theme for this box is Mood Boost which, not gonna lie, I could use a little of right now. It includes 4 great oils and 6 fun essential oil recipes (+ 2 bonus diffuser recipes this month) with ingredients that are perfect for the time of 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 an easy DIY Reed Diffuser that you can use for any blend!

This reed diffuser is so easy to make. It requires the essential oil or oils of your choice, then just 2 additional ingredients (and one of them is water). You can even use bamboo skewers for reeds if you didn't get this month's box. For my jar, I'm reusing a little facial oil bottle. Any small container with a narrow neck, like a bud vase, will work. Anyone can make this!

If you haven't seen the Simply Earth boxes 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 March's box is all about caring for your mood.

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 here.

FYI: For those who want to make a change in their own homes but aren't really confident about using essential oils, Simply Earth is still offering the Essential Oil Hero Course that includes the Essential Oil Hero Kit and you can break the fee down into monthly payments.

If you're a box subscriber, the course (not including the kit) is free!!!

This month's Essential Oil Recipe Box came inside of a Big Bonus Box. When you use my code, your recipe box will come with this bonus box + a $40 gift card that you can use for extra oils, ingredients, containers, or storage boxes. They have a lot of cool stuff on their site!

It contains extras that you will need over the course of the next few months to help you make the recipes in the Essential Oil Recipe Box and box subscribers will get one of these every 6 months.

It always contains:
  • Six 5ml amber bottles with dropper inserts
  • Six 10ml amber roll-on bottles with roller inserts
  • 2 oz. bag of beeswax pellets
  • 12 oz. jar of solid coconut oil
  • 4 oz. bottle of fractionated coconut oil
  • 4 oz. bottle of almond oil

Now, 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:

  • Persevere Roll-On
  • It's Okay to Grieve Diffuser Blend
  • Anxiety Relief Inhaler
  • DIY Reed Diffuser
  • DIY Lava Rock Diffuser
  • Creative Zone Diffuser Blend

Also included in the box is a set of 5 diffuser reeds...

...and a 10-ct. package of Lava Rock Beads.

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

The total value of this month's oils is $45.96!

So that was March's box! I'm loving all of the mood-enhancing recipes. Now, let's make something cool!

DIY Reed Diffuser
Source: Simply Earth


  • 5 reeds
  • a small, narrow-necked jar
  • 2 Tbsp. Vodka, witch hazel, or rubbing alcohol
  • 2 Tbsp. distilled (bottled) water
  • 25 drops Essential Oils


1. Add the vodka (I'm using witch hazel) and the essential oils to your jar. I'm using the Cypress and Orange oils from this month's box. You could use any oils that you like, but any of the Mood-boosting blend recipes would be great for this. Swirl for at least 30 seconds (or cover the opening and shake) to mix.

2. Add water to the jar.

3. Place reeds into the jar. Allow them to soak for a few hours, then flip the reeds so the opposite ends are in the jar. Flip the reeds every few days and refresh the mixture every 2 weeks. Use this diffuser to scent a small space like a bathroom or office.

This month's recipes are fabulous. If you like the upcoming March box and want to grab it for yourself, you can get it for just $39!

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