Great Affordable Essential Oils From Simply Earth

Essential oils are amazing, but can be so expensive. I love when I get to work with a company that is affordable. When Simply Earth offered to send me their 36 oil set, there is no way I was saying no.





One of the things that I love is that Simply Earth is on Amazon (yay for prime shipping). There are so many oils to chose from. I love oils and have pretty much all the basics and multiples of them, but I love that Simply Earth has so many that I haven’t tried yet.


I want to start by saying that whenever you use oils make sure you don’t put them directly on your skin. You need to always use a carrier oil like coconut oil, almond oil or even lotion, something as a barrier to protect your skin.




The first oil Simply Earth has that I hadn’t tried before was Camphor. There are a few key benefits that include:


  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Anesthetic
  • Decongestant
  • And more…


I have arthritis in my hips and back, so finding something that helps is a big deal. I can’t really explain the scent, but it’s not overpowering at all. To me it’s a really fresh and very calming scent. Add a little lavender to the coconut oil and Camphor and i’m out in a few minutes into the massage (big thanks to my husband).






Palmarosa is another new oil for me and is great for pain. If you take baths just add a few drops to the water and are golden. Here are a few key benefits that include:


  • Skin problems
  • Anxiety
  • Cuts and other wounds
  • And more…


This oil blends really well with Cananga, Geranium, Bergamot, Sandalwood, Patchouli, and Cedarwood. Just add a drop or two of one of these and they blend very well


.
Besides Lavender and Peppermint oh and Frankincense, my favorite oil is Lemon. One reason I love it is because it smells so good. I can put it in a diffuser and it just lifts my house up in such a good scent. Lemon has so many other great parts, it can be used for cleaning. The first time I used it for cleaning is when, no joke I ran out of cleaning supplies and had to get my house ready for a showing (we were selling). I thought, ok I have heard people use this, let’s try it. So i put some in a bucket (like 5 or so drops), along with some water and vinegar. Let me tell you, my house had never been cleaner or smell better. My best friend and his son came over to help me get the dog and kids out and they were shocked when they walked in. So from then on I use those three ingredients. I have smelled many lemon oils from companies and I can really tell when it’s a good one. Simply Earth has a great lemon. My husband laughed when that was the first one I reached for and opened up, but he stopped when he smelled it as well.


Essential Oils for Dogs:


I have one big dog. I say big boy because he weighs in at a little over 100 pounds. When we adopted him at 10 months, the shelter said that he has one leg/paw that was injured before he got there. It looked like it had been broken at some point and never healed right. They wanted us to know incase he had problems in the future. For the most part this doesn’t bother him, unless he does a lot in one day. Like if he goes to the dog park and runs for longer than normal, or goes for a longer walk. When that happens he starts to limp and you can tell it’s hurting. Since getting more into essential oils, I have looked into oils for dogs. Oils help us humans so they must help animals as well. One thing I learned is that not every oil is safe for animals like a dog. So if you are going to use them, please do the research first and make sure you are using them on the right areas and the right dilution. Never put straight oils on your pets, just like we don’t put straight oils on us.




Frankincense and Lemongrass


Dilute only a drop of each oil in Almond Oil to use while doing a light massage on your dog. This is especially great for joint injuries like my boy House has. If your dog isn’t used to massage, just start with a minute and work your way up to longer. It’s amazing how fast they just calm down once they know what you are doing. I started by just talking like I normally would to House. He just lays his head down and lets us do our thing now.


I really suggest that you go to Amazon and check out all the different oils that Simply Earth has. They are very affordable, and range from about $7 to $15 (very affordable). I highly recommend the ones I mentioned above to use as staples if you haven't tried any before. Below is a list of the 36 that I received. I hope you check them out and love them as much as I do. I really am known as the oil queen in my family.




Mandarin Orange Clove Copaiba
Cedarwood Lavender Angelica Root Peppermint
Eucalyptus Frankincense Rosemary Camphor
Cypress Spearmint Anise oil Oregano
Nutmeg Bergamot Tangerine Tea Tree
Sage Lemon Lemongrass Lemon Eucalyptus
Juniper Berry Basil Palmarosa Patchouli
Dill Seed Cajeput Grapefruit Lemon Myrtle
Blood Orange Cinnamon Pine Fir Needle
