Breathe In Box Subscription Box Review November 2015 - info

This is the information card that came in the box. It describes each fragrance and the oils that were blended to derive them.

Breathe In Box Subscription Box Review November 2015 - instructions

On the reverse side of the card are instructions for using an oil diffuser. I don’t use an oil diffuser personally, but I use essential oils for all kinds of things. A diffuser is only one of many, many ways to go with essential oils. You can use them with a warmer, you can apply (very sparingly) to your skin, clothing, or hair, or you can put some sizzle or wood shavings in your car’s ashtray and put a few drops in there to keep your car smelling fresh. Before diffusers were “a thing,” we used to put a few drops in a pot with water and then boil it to make the house smell great fast. The ultimate life hack is to put a few drops inside each roll of toilet paper to keep your bathroom smelling fantastic! I don’t mean to go on and on, but there are indeed many great uses for essential oils.

These are the oils for November: Bonfire Nights, Holiday Afterparty, and Cinnamon Cookie. Of course, my favorite for this time of year is Cinnamon Cookie! They all smell amazing, though. Bonfire Nights smells so woodsy and fresh!

The Verdict: First of all, I like that Breathe In Box takes the guesswork out of creating essential oil blends because it is not as easy as you might think! Also, pure essential oils are very expensive, so it stinks when you try to blend them and it comes out wrong (pardon the pun). That being said, you can get essential oil for much less, so the value all depends on whether you like their blends and appreciate smaller quantities of unique fragrances. The fragrances I received this month all smell amazing! My sons and I usually make homemade soaps, lotions, and salts for Christmas presents, and I am sure we will use these three oils up quickly!

  1. Wonderful review, like your “Ultimate life hack”-need to try this when company is over;)

  2. Great review, as always.

    Honestly I have many oils (& a diffuser) so I’m not interested in this sub at that price, which I feel is high, but I would be SOOOO interested in you making a blog post about uses for essential oils!!!

    People who want to blend: there are tons of books out there that tell what scents go with what….

  3. Do you know where the oils come from? What “brand”?

    • Sorry Debra, I don’t.

  4. I love the idea of this box! I don’t think I could ever make my own blends. I’ve really been looking into making homemade soaps, candles, and scrubs but don’t know where to start. Any advise?
