August 2021 Simply Earth Recipe Box

Each month, I get a subscription box on my doorstep from Simply Earth, a non-MLM brand of oils that is dedicated to helping educate their audience on how to use oils with confidence and clarity. 

Each box includes…

  • 4 full-size essential oils
  • 6 fun DIY recipe cards
  • extras needed to make the recipes
  • safety information for use around kids, pets, pregnant/nursing moms, dilution rates, etc.

The four oils included in the August 2021 recipe box include Sage oil, Lavender 40/42 oil, Peppermint oil, and Simply Earth’s Peace & Quiet blend.

The Peace & Quiet oil blend is a blend of sweet orange, frankincense, cedarwood, and lime essential oils – it smells amazing!

First-time subscribers also get their BIG BONUS BOX, which includes…

  • beeswax
  • cold-pressed coconut oil
  • fractionated coconut oil
  • almond oil
  • 6 roll-on bottles
  • 6 essential oil bottles

With a subscription, customers get this big bonus box every 6th order!

I’ve officially had this subscription for over a year now, and I can tell you – IT IS AMAZING.

I’ve always loved using oils, but besides dropping them in a diffuser for smelling up a room…I didn’t know much.

With this subscription box, I can make fun recipes to use around our home and learn different uses for them at the same time. 

They also donate 13% of their profits to help fight human trafficking.

In this post, I’ll be sharing one of the 6 recipes from this month’s box, but be sure to follow me on Instagram as I share recipes on my stories throughout the month…

DIY Toilet Cleaning Bombs

What you’ll need to make these toilet bombs…

  • 6 drops peppermint essential oil (included in this month’s box!)
  • 1/4 c baking soda
  • 1/2 tbsp. castile soap (I used Simply Earth castile soap) or dish soap
  • 1 tbsp. citric acid (also included in this month’s box)
  • 1-2 ice trays or silicone molds

Follow the directions on your recipe card – mix the wet ingredients together, then the dry ingredients together, and add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients.

This helps ensure a more even mix.

Press the mixture into your silicone mold.

Allow your toilet bowl cleaning bombs to set for a minimum of 4 hours to harden.

Once they’re hardened, gently pop them from your silicone mold or ice cube tray and put them in your bathroom in a glass jar like this one I have.

These toilet bowl cleaning bombs will deodorize your bathroom (they smell so good!) and help keep your toilet bowl cleaner for longer!

Hi. I tried making the toilet bombs, and the fizzed everywhere while it was still in the bowl. The final product does not look like what is pictured. It is a fizzy bubbly mess. I followed the directions, so would love your help with troubleshooting.

Hi! Thank you so much for telling me! I accidentally wrote 1/2 cup instead of 1/2 tbsp. for the Castile soap measurement :(. I’m fixing it now so it will be correct.
