This month’s theme is “Summer Essential Home Detox.” Each project in the box comes with a sheet detailing how to use the items included, and providing background on the benefits of the eco-friendly approach. This month, the projects are an essential oil air-freshener, an essential oil diffuser, and an essential oil candle.
Organic Essential Oil Set: Sweet Mandarin, Lemongrass, Cinnamon, and Cedarwood
Organic Soybean Oil
Organic Soy Wax
When I found out that this box was centered around essential oils, I was thrilled! My family and I have really become interested in essential oils over the last year or two. The oils included made it easy to create scent combinations that were summery (with the fruits and sandalwood) or very cozy and Autumn-like (by adding the cinnamon).
The soy wax is to be melted down for the candle and the soy bean oil was included as a carrier oil for the diffuser.
Candle Jar and Wicks
I love the style of the bottle they included for the diffuser, and the frosted candle jar ended up making my candle look like it could have been store bought! The mason jar is for melting the wax in, but to be honest, I’d love to get more wax and make a candle out of it, too.
Reed Diffusers and Droppers
Spray Bottle for Air Freshener
Here are my finished products. I wish you could smell them!
The Verdict: This is the first Homegrown Collective box I’ve tried, and it’s immediately one of my all-time favorite subscription boxes. The DIY aspect was fun, interesting, and not terribly challenging. I’m really glad that the end results of these projects are practical and help make my home more healthy! I also love that they included plenty of the essential oils and the soy bean oil in the kit, so I can even make more of the projects (granted I find more candle containers and get more soy wax).
What did you think of the August Homegrown Collective Box? Have you used essential oils before?
