Simply Earth Essential Oils and Why I Chose Them
Simply Earth Essential Oils has really changed my approach to oils. I grew up with a massage therapist as a mother. Oils were around the house all of the time, tea tree oil consistently being my favorite. For years, I knew I wanted to start incorporating essential oils into my daily routine. The older I get, the more I want to reduce the chemicals I use in my home and on my skin. This kept steering me right back to essential oils.
What is Simply Earth Oils?
Simply Earth Essential Oils is a family-owned company who simply wanted to cure their daughter’s stinky feet. Like me, they were tired of chemicals and the cost of oils. They kept running into the problem of not being able to find quality oils at a price they could afford. It was thrilling to know that this company set out to fix a problem that was keeping so many of us from using oils: THE PRICE OF OILS. For the longest time, I was buying oils from places like Walgreens and it was just BAD! I knew there had to be a company out there selling great, pure, honest oils at a fair and honest price. Simply Earth Essential Oils has cut out the middle man and achieved this goal.
Be the Change with Simply Earth
With Simply Earth Essential Oils, you’re not just simply changing your home, you’re being the change. Simply Earth recognizes that, in a sense, they’ve become part of the beauty industry for young men and women alike. Because of this, the company donates 13% of its profits to fight to end human trafficking for those whose beauty has been unfortunately and unfairly abused. Each month a different organization is highlighted by the company to raise awareness of the facts of human trafficking. Did you know the average age of an individual forced into exploiting their body through human trafficking is 13?

Finding Oils in a Time of Need
I’ve always had migraines. The older I grew, the worse and more intense they became. At some point, I went to a specialist who gave me Rizatriptan (a common migraine pharmaceutical) to take, as needed. The Rizatriptan was supposed to be taken once I received the first aura signaling I was getting a migraine which. For me, that was flashing in my eyes. I took the prescribed Rizatriptan twice during my first aura and decided I just couldn’t do it anymore. The medicine made me feel unbelievably nauseous.
I stopped taking the Rizatriptan and started getting a massage once a month. Long before I started massages or tried Rizatriptan, I sat down to do some research on essential oils for migraines. I read that peppermint was one of the best oils to help migraines. I can’t tell you how happy I was when I found Simply Earth Essential Oils Peppermint to accompany my sessions! My massage therapist would rub the oil into my scalp, temples, and shoulders and I’d leave feeling lifted and balanced. She’d also use lavender on days my shoulder and neck were particularly tight. I now use Simply Earth Lavender on my face and neck every night!
So, why Simply Earth?
I’m not going tell you that Simply Earth is the only pure, honest, fair essential oil company out there. There are other great companies that might fit your needs better. Maybe you’re currently with a company you love and that’s great! What I will tell is you why I chose Simply Earth over the other companies.
- Cost: If you’ve been on The Green Acre Homestead often, you know I’m all about some honesty, Y’all. The honest truth is the first thing that turned me on to Simply Earth Essential Oils was the price of the oils. I had read some great reviews and loved that the oils were closer to what I could afford at the time. How are they so inexpensive you ask? Simple. They cut out the middle man. Many of the well-known oil names are all multi-level marketing companies. Being a multi-level marketing company makes oils more expensive than other smaller, but equal in quality, companies. Again, not exactly a bad thing, just not what I was looking for. This leads me to my next reason for choosing Simply Earth Essential Oils…
- No Buy-In: Almost every time someone wanted to sell me oils, it was always something like “You get the best deal with a kit”. AGAIN, if that works for you that is so great. For me, it just wasn’t what I was looking for. I wanted the specific, pure oil I needed at a fair, honest price with no hoops or buy-ins. After doing more research on the company, I loved everything about it. I found it was EXACTLY what I was looking for. Which leads me to one of my favorite things about Simply Earth…
- Small, Family-Owned Business: Both of my parents have always been self-employed with their own businesses. I mentioned earlier that my mother has always been a massage therapist and entrepreneur. My father owned his own computer business. Obviously, there’s a soft spot in my heart for small and/or family-owned businesses. Simply Earth was created because a pair of parents had a problem that they needed to solve and they solved it. In turn, they found a way to help hundreds of other people, too. Great oils at a fair, honest price.
- Simply Earth Essential Oil Recipe Box: I’m no oil genius or aromatherapist. I can’t tell you what every single oil does. Actually, almost every time I want to use oil for something I have to look up which one to use and why. That’s how we learn, or at least how I’ve been learning. I’d argue to say that the best way there is to learn about essential oils is through Simply Earth’s Recipe Box. When I found this box I was ecstatic! It was the cherry on top and from that day on I became a dedicated Simply Earther. Over the flippin’ moon, Y’all.
What is the Simply Earth Essential Oil Recipe Box?
