Say hello to “me time” and relaxation with November’s Simply Earth Essential Oils Recipe Box being bath and shower themed.

The Eucalyptus, Lime and Leaf Cinnamon scents are invigorating yet soothing, reminding me of days spent at the spa. The box also includes a pack of lavender buds and powdered whole milk to make other recipes such as Lavender Buds & Tranquility Milk Bath, Oatmeal & Milk Bath and a Tranquility & Lime Diffuser Blend.

Although thankfully my cozy contemporary bathroom looks like a spa, adding aromatic essential oils such as Eucalyptus and Lime will make it feel like a spa.  These DIY shower steamers are the perfect addition to set the scene for self care.

To make the shower steamers I also needed to use some ingredients from the Big Bonus Box we received when we first signed up with Simply Earth. Use our coupon code SMCHFREE to get your own Big Bonus Box with your first order. You’ll also get a $40 e-gift card which you can use towards a future purchase. 

The timing couldn’t be any better with the holidays around the corner. Next month’s Simply Earth recipe box theme is all about handmade gifts for the holidays!

If you’re curious to see what other creative things can be made with the recipe boxes, take a look at how we made beautiful hand soaps with pressed flowers, a DIY Fall scented candle and our Big Bonus Box unboxing video.

After 24 hours, the steamers are ready to use! Remove from the mold and store in an air tight container.

The Eucalyptus helps clear your sinuses while the Lime feels refreshing and sweet. For your next shower, simply place one steamer at the bottom of your shower and enjoy your calming experience.

And if you have any leftover lavender buds, sew some pretty lavender sachets.

For next month, Simply Earth will be in the Christmas spirit with the recipe box being all about homemade gifts to give to your loved ones.
