Simply Earth | The Monthly Essential Oil Recipe Box

I recently got in my Simply Earth Essential Oil Recipe Box as well as their Bonus Box that includes all the goodies I'd need to mix up any essential oil recipe they send. 

Needless to say it's been a gloomy week in Birmingham so excuse the photo quality. But with that said nothing makes me want to run my diffusers like overcast cold weather. They've really taken the place of candles in my home. 

Let's get to the bottom of the November Simply Earth Box - I received 4 essential oils, 3 of which I've never used before. Recipe cards. A linen bag for one of the recipes. Powdered milk. Lavender buds. And finally labels for any recipes I made.

My Bonus Box included beeswax, solid and liquid coconut oil, almond oil, as well as roller and blend bottles for any recipes I made.

I've bought oils from many companies over the years and this is just as high quality as anyone I've tried. The bonus being that it comes at a good price. You can buy their oils on their website outside of just their boxes by the way.

I know I'll be reordering Tranquility as soon as I run out instead of waiting for it to come in another box.

Now let's talk about the box...

Each month your box will come with 4 essential oils plus bonuses to help make their recipes from that month's cards. Your first month you get the Big Bonus Box for free with your monthly box. It's $39 a month and when you order your first month and use code LABRIDEFREE you'll also receive a $30 gift card to use later either in the Simply Earth Shop or on a future recipe box. (So technically that first box is free!)

What I like the most about this is that it get's me out of my usual oils. I stay with about 5-8 bottles on repeat to cure all my ailments and clean all the things. The November box opened me up to 3 oils I've never use and the blend they sent actually has a few of my favorites in it mixed with a few I've never used. 

The first recipe card I tried out was the Tranquility and Lime diffuser blend. It's seriously heavenly. It made the entire house smell really clean.

Tonight I'm busting out the milk bath recipe card. 

In case you didn't want to just read what I wrote... here's a little Youtube review of Simply Earth >>

Let me also add in that Simply Earth 13% of their profits to help stop human trafficking, so if love companies that give back... this is definitely one of them! 

So whether you want to order some essential oils alone or check out the monthly box check out Simply Earth, y'all know how much I love essential oils and these folks are legit. If you want to order the box be sure to use my code LABRIDEFREE to get that $40 gift card when your first box comes in! 

cariPro Ultrasonic Electronic Toothbrush Review & Giveaway

Y'all know I love my Smile Brillant Whitening System, and from what I've heard from friends who've used it they did too! I've been on a touch of a whitening break with pregnancy and breastfeeding though.

Sadly I can manual brush myself to death with my favorite whitening toothpaste and it hasn't kept up with my coffee intake.

Is this new? No. With Harrison, when I had my first cleaning the dental hygienist immediately asked how much coffee I had been drinking. Let's just say... a lot. A whole lot. I need my sleep and if I can't have that then I'll just have coffee.

Not the best tactic for pretty white teeth.

So you can imagine my excitement when Smile Brilliant contacted me about trying out their new cariPro Ultrasonic Electric Toothbrush.

I've used Jeremy's electric spin brush for a long time and I thought it was working great. I could tell a big difference when I used it verses a manual brush.

But then.... BUT THEN... I got my hands on this handy dandy ultrasonic and my life has been changed people. I wish I was being my usual dramatic self with no reason, but I am not friends. Not at all when I tell you this -- using the cariPro Ultrasonic gets my teeth the absolute closest they've ever felt to the post cleaning feeling.

Y'all know that feeling, the o-so-clean-they're-slippery.

I'm actually due for a cleaning this month and my teeth feel better and my plaque looks better than it ever does right before a cleaning. To be super honest, I tend to have a bit of buildup behind my lower front teeth (thanks to having lots a saliva) and it actually has decreased after using this toothbrush the past few weeks.

The weirdest thing about this brush though, having never used an ultrasonic toothbrush before I have to say it felt pretty strange. The insanely fast vibrations took some getting use to, it almost felt like someone was tickling my teeth and gums.

I'm sold though and I'm never going back.

Something about those super fast vibrations blows any electric spin brush out of the water.

Before I forget, aside from how well it has cleaned my teeth, I'd say the biggest selling point for me are the multiple clean programs and the timer. Before I start brushing I select what I want to do, generally one of the bottom three options in the morning and whitening or cleaning at night. That's when my favorite feature number 2 comes into play, it pauses every 30 seconds. The cariPro is set up to do this so you can brush your teeth for 30 seconds per quadrant. Split your teeth up into top right/top left/bottom right/bottom left. When you've cleaned all four areas it turns off completely on it's own.

My husband tried to point out that his electric did that, but not like this people. I've used his and while it will have a slight pause after 2 minutes, it never turns off. His also pauses if you press down too long so I could never tell if I was done or if I pressed too hard. Yet more reasons to love the newest brush from Smile Brilliant.


Now for the best part, Smile Brilliant is giving away a cariPro to one of y'all!
