AromaBox July 2018 Review
This month’s theme is “The Empathic”. The grammar nerd in me wants it to be called “The Empath” to go with the rest of this year’s role-based themes, oh well. Its all about being sensitive to the people and environment around you!
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 “Save The Drama Spray!” blend! Haha!
I also wanted to point out that their information sheet contains important safety information under each oil. It’s definitely great info to have on hand.
White Grapefruit, 1/6 oz – Retail Value $15.20 per 1/2 oz
I honestly don’t know why pink grapefruit is such a common scent for cleaners when this scent exists. Divine! Citrus is commonly known as a great reviving, pick-me-up kind of scent, but white grapefruit is particularly good for oily skin, cellulite, and stress relief.
Tobacco Absolute, 1/6 oz – Retail Value $38.99
One of the best things about Herb Stop’s subscription box is that it usually includes at least one essential oil that is so precious, I probably would never spend the money on buying it for myself. This month, it’s tobacco! Yes, it smells like my dad’s coat when I was growing up, so even though tobacco gets a really bad rap, it has some positive associations for me personally. And the essential oil has a lot of benefits, as it is very calming and grounding. It is also a key ingredient in many men’s fragrances.
Camphor, 1/6 oz – Retail Value $6.30 per 1/2 oz
Did anyone else’s mom give them Campho-Phenique when their braces scratched up the inside of their mouth? Haha, memories. I think most people know what camphor smells like, and that it is good for chest congestion. What you may not know, however, is that it is a very grounding fragrance that helps you control your emotions a little better. Interesting!
The Empathic Roll-On Essential Oil Blend – Retail Value $19.95
Call me crazy, but this smells kind of like a really sophisticated bubble gum? Haha. Herb Stop includes a roll-on blend every month that goes with the theme, and this month’s blend helps to quiet and calm excitable, temperamental people. Thus, I will now be rolling it all over both of my children. Maybe my husband also. It’s a blend of grapefruit, lavender, bay laurel, muhuhu, jasmine, tobacco, and jojoba oils.
The Verdict: I am consistently impressed with the Aroma Box by Herb Stop. I am getting such a massive education on natural health and wellness through this subscription! The oils are top quality and purity. The curation is also spot on and always perfectly suited to the month. The value is also always consistently high. I am a big fan!
