Simply Earth - A look at the May Recipe Box

Last month, I introduced you to my new favorite essential oil company, Simply Earth.

If you didn't happen to see that post, check it out HERE...

Now I'm back with a review of SE's May Recipe Box...and let me just say, I am once again floored by this company.



This month, the Recipe Box (shown above) focuses on creating natural products for your dogs & cats.

Can you even believe everything you receive for just $39? 

I mean, really...$39?

That's what you would spend on just 1 or 2 oils from other companies!


This month's recipes include:

  • An anti-anxiety diffuser recipe (wonderful for people, too!)
  • Pet Odor Elimination Spray
  • Tick & Mosquito Collar
  • Fur & Skin Conditioner
  • Itchy Skin Roll-On
  • Paw Balm

Now, we don't have any cats or dogs...sadly, my husband & kids suffer from allergies...but my mom has two crazy dogs, so I've created these recipes and will bring them over to her to use. 

I know she'll love them!



One thing I really love about the Recipe Boxes is that a card for each recipe is included in your box. 

No having to print them out yourself, and no having to refer to your phone each time you want to remake a recipe.

I gotta tell ya...I can't wait for my mom to try this Pet Odor Eliminating Spray...her dogs can be STINK-Y!

And this Tick & Mosquito bandana will be perfect for those hot summer days when it gets so buggy here in the Midwest.


Don't forget that when you subscribe, you will receive the Simply Earth Bonus Box at NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE every six months!

This Bonus Box will include extra ingredients and containers to help you make your monthly recipes...I mean, really...they've thought of EVERYTHING!


**The above photo shows an example of what's included in a Bonus Box**


One more thing, when you start your monthly subscription to the Simply Earth Recipe Box, and enter my code:

MGDIYFREE

at checkout, you get a $40 gift card (delivered via email) to use on a future order.

That's right...$40 to use on whatever you want from the Simply Earth site!

You can cancel your membership at any time with just an email...but I'm pretty sure this is one subscription box you'll be running to mailbox to get every month.



If you're even at all interested in using essential oils to create a more natural environment for your family, I urge you to check out Simply Earth...you won't be disappointed.

Simply Earth Essential Oils - My New Love

Essential oils



Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few years, you know exactly what I'm talking about.

Heck...even if you've been living under a rock, you've probably heard of essential oils.

But just in case you need a quick reminder...essential oils are used both topically and in oil diffusers to help balance hormones, boost immunity & energy levels, support digestion & brain function, promote restful sleep, and to alleviate aches & pains - just to name a few a their functions.

They are completely natural & safe, and are a good alternative for treating several health concerns.

The only problem? 

They can be EXPENSIVE.

I love using oils in my home for all sorts of things...but I don't always choose them over other products because, quite frankly, I don't want to use them all up and then have to buy more. #cheapskate

And learning how to combine & use them effectively & to their full potential can become a full-time job.

Plus, there's just not a ton of information readily available from the major oil manufacturers.

Super frustrating.

Until now.

Enter Simpy Earth and the Essential Oil Recipe Box.

Simply Earth is a family-owned essential oil company based in Wisconsin that believes you shouldn't have to attend a high-pressure party or take out a second mortgage to add oils to your home.

This monthly subscription box contains everything you need to create a natural home...easily & inexpensively.

I was recently contacted by Simply Earth and asked if I would like to review one of their boxes...and let me say it took about .04 seconds for me to reply with a firm "hell, yes."

Here's what I received from Simply Earth:



*4 five oz. essential oils 
*1 aluminum fine mist spray bottle
*1 bottle Castile Soap (to be used in several of the included recipes)
*6 oil recipe cards (including recipes for a Laundry Stain Remover, a Tea Tree & Lemon Surface Cleaner, Natural Laundry Detergent, Foaming Hand Soap, Lemon & Nutmeg Dishwasher Detergent, and a natural home diffuser recipe)
*stickers used to label the oil bottles & the recipes you create

That's over a $150 value! For just $39/month + free shipping!

And guess what?

This is not all you receive when you subscribe!

What?!?!

I know!

Here's what else you get...absolutely free...with your first box.


A bonus box filled with extras to help you make all of the fantastic recipes you'll get!

And it gets even better...

Every 6th monthly subscription box you receive will come with a bonus box...again, absolutely free!



Each month's box revolves around a theme...this month is all about getting clean.

This is the first recipe I made...Laundry Stain Remover.


It took me about 10 seconds to throw together...and, with baseball season starting next week, I know I'll be getting my fair share of chances to use it on the boys' uniforms.

I also immediately added the recommended blend of oils to one of my diffusers, and spent the afternoon breathing in the beautiful aroma of Lemon, Tea Tree & Nutmeg...a blend I never would have thought of on my own...but one that I absolutely love & will diffuse on the regular.


Now, if all that wasn't enough...there's more.

Yep.

More.

When you start your monthly subscription to the Simply Earth Recipe Box, and enter my code:

MGDIYFREE

at checkout, you get a $20 gift card (delivered via email) to use on a future order.

That's right...$20 to use on whatever you want!

You can cancel your membership at any time with just an email...but I'm pretty sure this is one subscription box you'll be running to mailbox to get every month.



Not quite sure about a monthly subscription just yet? 

No worries!
Simply Earth sells single oils, carrier oils & blends, jewelry & accessories, too - all guaranteed for 365 days & with free shipping for purchases over $29! 

Plus, their 15 mL oil bottles, run, on average, around $10 - TEN DOLLARS!

Check everything out HERE!

And not only does Simply Earth offer amazing products at affordable prices, they also donate 13% of their profits to help end human trafficking...now that's definitely something I can get behind. Read more about their mission HERE.

Worried about the purity of the oils from Simply Earth?

Well, don't be.

Their Simply Pure Promise ensures that all of their oils are ethically sourced and tested for 100% purity.

I encourage you to head on over to Simply Earth and see for yourself...I bet you'll be amazed.

Valentine's Day | Handmade by Heidi

Hello, hello, everyone!

If you're anything like me, you struggle with what to give your older kids for smaller holidays, like Valentine's Day. Items from the Target Dollar Spot just don't seem to cut it anymore, and you (read, I...) don't want to buy expensive gifts, just for the sake of having something to give them.

So, gift cards it is! 

And truthfully, it's all they really want anyway, sooooo...

But tossing them a naked little square of plastic really isn't my thang, so this year's Valentine's Day gift cards are getting a little fancy packaging.


Heidi's new Handmade by Heidi Kits (available now on Joann.com) include some of the most wonderful stationery and embellishments...especially perfect for creating my gift-card holders.



To start, I grabbed some of my favorite things from the collection...


Next, using my 1" hole punch, I notched out a little semi-circle from each of the front pages of my cards. 

Then I stitched along the bottom and up the right-hand side of each card, creating a pocket.

NOTE: If you don't have a sewing machine, or would prefer not to use it, you can always use a tape runner to seal your edges together.


I typed up little notes for each of the kids on some white cardstock, then I attached a mix of tags and acrylic embellishments to the top using some of the string included in each Tag Kit.


I slipped each card into the pocket I created, letting the tags hang over the front...


...and added each gift card to the pocket.


Then I decorated each envelope a bit with pieces from the Embellish Kits.


Finally, I tucked each card/pocket/giftcard/tag bundle into its respective envelope, sealed them up and set them out...to be opened on February 14. 

I hope they love them...



You can find everything I used for this project right now at Joann.com...

Thank you so much for stopping by!
