My First Simply Earth Essential Oil Box

Whew! The past week has been CRAZY here! I mean a full moon almost always causes chaos but a  super blood moon can wreak all kinds of havoc in my house! On top of that I decided to rearrange a couple of rooms… lol… we only have a couple of rooms, right? Just kidding, but just because our house is small doesn’t make it any easier.

Things are finally getting settled down and everything is pretty much organized, well at least as organized as it can be for now, so I’ve been trying to catch up on some things that I need to work on. As I was checking emails I noticed that I was scheduled to get a box from Simply Earth (yep, that’s an affiliate link at no cost to you) and panic set in for a moment as I wasn’t 100% sure that I had indeed received it. After running to the bedroom to check I did find the package safe and sound waiting for me to open it. I grabbed the phone and filmed a quick video to post on YouTube. (See the video below.)

I was so happy to open it up and see what all they had sent me. I just wanted to share it with everyone and what a better way to do it than a video? I love essential oils and I am always trying out new blends and recipes. Sometimes it gets complicated to know what is what and where to get it.

I can’t thank them enough at Simply Earth as they have made my life so much simpler by including almost everything I need for the recipes that they sent with this box. These are all recipes that I will be trying out soon in our home, especially that Sore Muscle Roll On!

So, if you haven’t watched the video you are probably waiting for me to tell you what exactly was in this box that has me so excited…

This February Essential Oil Box from Simply Earth included:

  • four essential oils: lemon, oregano, ravensara, and defender blend
  • menthol crystals
  • coconut oil
  • 3 roll on bottles
  • 1 small bottle
  • 2 inhaler tubes
  • 6 recipe cards

 

 

Pretty awesome, huh? That’s not all though as Simply Earth is on a mission to make it easy and affordable for people to have a natural home while giving 13% of their profits to help end human trafficking.

If you want to check out their site and maybe grab a box of your own then use my code KIRBYSKORNERFREE to get a $40 gift card emailed to you after subscribing on your first box (SUBSCRIPTION CAN BE CANCELLED ANYTIME).

If you like the essential oil diffuser in the video you can get yours here and the wooden storage box here.

Note: The only thing that I was lacking when I made up my recipes was some oil droppers. These make things so much easier when trying to measure out the drops precisely. You can probably order them from the Simply Earth site or get some here.

Homemade Poopourri Spray

Ingredients:

  • 20-40 drops of your favorite essential oil or a blend of oils (my favorite for this spray is Purity Blend) **you can use more or less depending on your own preference
  • 1-2 t. alcohol
  • 8 – 12 oz of water (just enough to fill your spray bottle– I use one like this but ones like these may work better but you would divide this recipe between them)

Directions:

Add the oil, alcohol, and water to your bottle and shake to mix. You may need to shake this a little before each use also.

Keep the bottle somewhere close to the toilet but out of reach of little hands.

Spray a couple of squirts in the toilet before you go and give it a try.

Recently I was asked to purchase some ‘Poo Spray’. We have one small bathroom to share among all of us and the idea was a good one however when I researched the prices on Amazon they were rather expensive. So rather than flushing all that money away I decided to make my own.  Continue reading Homemade Poopourri Spray

Using Diatomaceous Earth In Your Home

**Please note this post does contain affiliate links to which I may, possibly, earn a small commission from if you click on and purchase an item. For full disclosure click here.

You may be wondering just what the heck Diatomaceous Earth is and what is used for. Well Diatomaceous Earth or (DE) is a fine powder made up of tiny fossilized plankton. It has a variety of uses that range from cleaners, health and beauty products, pest control, etc.

It is also very rich in silica which is needed for healthy teeth, skin, nails, hair, and bones. We have used it here in our home for a wide range of issues. Most recently we have used it in our Natural Facial Scrub/Mask. I try to make sure to buy the Food Grade kind as I know we will be using them in so many ways.

Reseachers have found all kinds of health benefits to DE like: Continue reading Using Diatomaceous Earth In Your Home

Natural Face Scrub/Mask

Recently I purchased a bag of Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth. It has many different health benefits but the one my daughter was most interested in was a facial mask or scrub as she has been busy making makeup videos.

She has commented that this has helped make her skin very soft and smooth. The tea tree oil is also good for redness and acne.

So here is the recipe for our Natural Face Scrub/Mask

Ingredients:

Directions:

Mix everything together until smooth. You may need to add a bit more coconut oil or honey to make a thick paste.

Mask:

Smooth over your face and let sit 5-10 minutes.

Rinse thoroughly.

Scrub:

Use the mixture to gently scrub your face and rinse thoroughly.

I know we are almost to the middle of November and it seems like mosquito bites should be over with for a bit, but not here in Florida. This past weekend was the beginning of hunting season and I spent most of my time out in the woods.

I had forgotten to take along the bug spray but it was quite chilly so I didn’t buy any on the way either. That was a big mistake!

We found a game trail and decided to check it out. Not long down the trail I was attacked by mosquitoes and bitten several times near my right eye. Ughhh…. that really hurt. Not too mention it was quite ugly and itchy.
