Simply Earth Rest & Relaxation || April Box

April 1, 2021

 It's that time of year when everything is go, go, go with sports and activities for families. Finding any moment to slow down is key to sanity - at least it is for me. 

This month Simply Earth's Essential Oil Recipe Box is showing up on your doorstep with the theme Rest & Relaxation. The goal with these oils is to support your body's natural rest cycles to feel more refreshed every morning. 

A great winding down routine in the evening is what helps me get my best sleep. Lately I've been diffusing Palmarosa and Amyris from the March box to help me relax in the evenings, and now I will be adding in this lovely foursome to my routine. 

First and foremost for this month's box - the oils. 

Sleepy (blend) - calming, kid safe for 2+ and pregnancy safe. 
Juniper Berry (single) -  uplifting, deodorizing , soothing, and stimulates energy
Copaiba (single) - uplifts, calms, and soothes
Balsam Fir (single) - uplifts, refreshes, supports respiration, soothing

Notice the theme? Relax, relax, relax. 

I always love their simple labels. Everything has a clean look and the colors are always beautiful and fit that season. 

This month's extras as a Natural Solubilzer, diffuser reeds, and a spray bottle. 

Natural Solubilzer is brand new to me, it helps oils and water mix together better. 

Now for the recipe cards! 

This month sends you two diffuser blends, a roll-on, reed diffuser, micellar water, pillow spray, and balm. 

Y'all know at this point my affinity for diffuser blends. I put something for sleep in the kids room every night, and I try to do it in our rooms most nights.

(PS. If you have Lavender and Lemon from previous month's put them together for an amazing diffuser blend. I like to fill up the diffusers with it when I'm walking around making beds in the morning.) 

I'm near running out of the current linen spray in our room, so the Sleepy Pillow Spray is about to be our replacement! This is the recipe that contains the solubilzer, so I'm really interested to see how the oil blends in better than when I've made sprays in the past. 

I don't use a night time roll-on every day with the kids, but I find it especially helpful when we are camping or traveling. I don't always bring a diffuser on our trips, so when I can't I toss a sleep roll-on in my bag to help the kids relax a bit more when we aren't in our usual surroundings. (super helpful camping when we don't have our beloved blackout curtains) 

Just like the roll-on this month, the balm will also be your travel best friend. I think it really just depends on your preference. Sometimes I do prefer a balm to a roll-on, especially when the kids are in a lotion mood. 

After last month's beauty box I am intrigued to try this Micellar Water - which friends, you could also make a batch using the beauty blend from March. 

A few things before I wrap this up - 

Next month's box will contain the Tranquility blend, Frankincense, Oregano, and Orange. Can y'all guess the theme? 

I'll give you some more hints, at home you'll  need sugar, coconut milk, corn starch, and an ice cube tray... 

*This month's 13% to end human trafficking is going to the organization Disrupting Traffick in Lincoln, Nebraska that trains and enables community members to mentor and provide safe housing for trafficking victims.
