Essential Oil Box Subscription Box Review + Coupon- Apr 2016

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. If you buy something, MSA may earn a commission. Read the full disclosure.


Herb StopΒ recently began offering a monthly subscription box filled with a variety of its essential oils. All of their essential oils are 100% pure except for the blends (obviously) and the precious essential oils, which are stretched with jojoba oil.


This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out our review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

This lovely thank-you card was included in this month’s package.


This is a pretty hefty information sheet. It not only details the package contents, but it gives some really in-depth information on each oil, different ways you can use each oil, safety concerns with ech oil, and a recipe to make your own blend. That’s a lot of good information! This month’s theme is “The Mind Box.”


Here are the vials I received for this month! They are (from left to right):

Sweet Basil – I love the scent of basil, and this smells absolutely pure. Basil was chosen this month for its ability to improve mental clarity.

Geranium – Geranium is a bit of an acquired scent for me. I like it now because it’s good for me, but I haven’t always. It was included in this month’s box because it reduces stress, tension, and anxiety.

Lemongrass – Lemongrass is such a clean and energizing scent to me! It was included in this month’s box because it helps fight depression, fatigue and even jet lag!

Balance & Focus Roll-On – This is a blend of Lavender, Peppermint, Rosemary, Basil, and Clary Sage, and it was selected for this box based on its ability to aid in concentration and focus.

Verdict: I really liked my first box from the Herb Stop! I like that their oils are pure, and they are just so versatile. I use essential oils all the time, and they are wonderful! In terms of value, this is one of those boxes that has a lot of intangible value. It’s true that you can buy essential oils for less elsewhere, but if you don’t know which ones to pick or what to do with them, your experience with aromatherapy might not be a very good one. If you want a beginner’s outlook and introduction to using essential oils in aromatherapy, then I think this box would be perfect for you.

  1. This looks like a nice subscription to have. I’m adding this to my future buy list.

  2. I just subscribed. Got the coupon code to work and added a comment that I would like the April box in addition tot the May box if possible. Super excited about this. Also think this will make a great gift subscription for my family and friends. Great way to explore new oils.

    • I also requested the April box and now realize that I will most likely have major FOMO about the May box. It didn’t occur to me to ask for both. If May is really good, I’ll reach out to them about it.

  3. Any chance to get the same box if I subscribe today? I need to reduce stress πŸ™‚ ?

    • Sure Annabella πŸ™‚ just leave a comment during checkout asking for April’s box instead of May’s box πŸ™‚

  4. Coupon code not working πŸ™

    • Hi Jolene – You might need to enter your email before entering MSA15. Try that out, I just tested it and I received the discount.

      • Okay, thanks. I was too excited and signed up without the discount, anyway πŸ™‚

        • Hi Jolene,

          I’m not sure what happened, but your order went into a regular cart instead of a subscription.

          I will call you shortly to get your order all set up as a subscription and give you the discount.

          Sorry for the confusion,
          Natalie from The Herb Stop

  5. This looks like a good value to me!

  6. Thanks for the review. Going to contemplate signing up would also make a great gift as many of my friends and family are into oils.
