This month’s box is all about “Things That Poke, Bite, & Sting.” I am excited for this theme! One of the things I love about this subscription is the many practical uses of aromatherapy that they present.
The information sheet from Herb Stop is really impressive. There’s a lot of knowledge packed in here! Every oil they sent is matched with three different usage tips. That’s really helpful! Plus on the reverse side there is a recipe for an insect repellant!
Catnip – I knew that catnip makes my cat go insane, but I didn’t know what a powerful insect repellant it is! The info sheet says it’s ten times more effective than DEET! I will never understand our obsession with poisonous chemicals.
Citronella – Citronella is a really familiar scent, of course, to all of us living in mosquito climates, and unfortunately, I don’t really like the scent. I’m wondering if I can just ignore it, though, because it has so many benefits beyond keeping the bugs away.
Niaouli – I had never heard of Niaouli before now! It smells a bit like tea tree oil, and it’s got some amazing healing properties. I can’t wait to give some of these tips a try!
Sting Stop Roll-On – This is a wonderful blend of lavender, tea tree oil, niaoili, eucalyptus, summer savory, German chamomile, aloe vera and witch hazel. That sounds amazing, and it sounds like it will be able to easily handle stings, cuts, and burns. This is great to have!
Verdict: I am consistently impressed with the AromaBox Essential Oil Monthly Subscription Box. This month’s oils are particularly relevant to all the summertime perils! Essential oils are pretty expensive, but the amount of oils in these vials is small. A little will go a long way, though, so I personally prefer having small amounts rather than bigger bottles I never use completely. The biggest part of the value to me, however, is all of the know-how that is packed into the info sheet! It speaks to not only what to use the oils for, but many different ways to apply them. I think if you are interested in learning A LOT about how to use essential oils to improve your health and your life, then this box is definitely for you!
