I’m super excited about this Simply Earth May 2019 box, because it’s the first box in which you can get a $40 Simply Earth gift card. If you’re familiar with my Simply Earth unboxings, you probably already know that my code will get you a $20 gift card along with the bonus box. I’m so excited for you all to try these boxes that have brought so much value to my home.
The Simply Earth May 2019 box is all about the pets. As you probably already now, we adopted a kitten soon after we moved into our new home. Her name is Zoe, and she’s pretty spoiled! There are a few DIY recipes that I’m excited to try, specifically the anxiety diffuser blend and the Fur and Skin Conditioner.
This is just an overview of the stickers you get in the box. Each recipe comes with its own label for the container. I love that, because it’s all ready to go and all you have to do is to do the recipe, put it in a container, and then label it. Love this!
It also comes with small circular labels for the tops of the essential oil bottles. As you add to your essential oil collection, this is such a valuable addition to the bottles. I really don’t have the time to sift through my bottles to find the essential oil that I want, so it’s super helpful to have stickers on the tops of the bottles.
Each Simply Earth box comes with four essential oils, a few ingredients for the recipes, and some of the containers you need for the recipes. This is why using my link with the code is such a good idea — you will receive the bonus box that contains extra ingredients and supplies. It’s an amazing deal to get you started on your essential oil journey. Even if you are a seasoned essential oil user, these supplies will be immensely useful to you.
First things first, I love making every diffuser blend that comes in my Simply Earth boxes. My diffuser is always on when we’re home. I consistently rotate through the different blends I’ve made, and I’m excited to use this Anti-Anxiety Diffuser blend. To make enough blend for one use, you will add 2 drops of the Peace and Quiet Essential Oil Blend and 1 drop of the Juniper Berry Essential Oil.
If you’re like me and prefer to make a large batch, the recipe card also includes the drop amounts for a 5 ml bottle. To use in your diffuser, you simply put in 1-3 drops and turn on your diffuser.
Next up, I wanted to try this Fur and Skin Conditioner. This is the first recipe I’ve ever made to apply topically for our cat. To create this conditioner, you add almond oil, Juniper Berry Essential oil, Ginger Essential Oil, and Citronella Essential Oil in a 1 ounce container. To use, you will massage a small amount to your pet’s coat or any dry patches of skin on your pet.
In case your pet is sensitive to smells, it’s a good idea to always give your pet an ‘out’ when it comes to essential oils. What this means is that when you have the diffuser blend diffusing, you won’t keep your pet closed in the room with it. Your pet should be able to freely come in and out of the room where the essential oils are diffusing. And for another example, I left the Fur and Skin Conditioner container open near Zoe to see if the smell was off-putting to her. She was very curious about it but walked away quickly, so we will try again another day to see if the smell bothers her.
I hope this unboxing was helpful! I absolutely love the Simply Earth boxes every month. These are sent to me for review, but this is something that I would 100% spend my own money on. Let me know if you have any questions!
