Essential oils for the fall
As fall comes around the corner, it brings with it a number of changes both to the environment and our bodies. As the weather starts cooling down, our immune system defenses begin to deteriorate and we become more vulnerable to inconveniences such as colds and constant coughs. Luckily, we have the tools needed to naturally prepare our bodies for the changes in the season and to maintain our health at a comfortable level until spring comes around.

Warming Oils

There’s a reason pumpkin-spice is so popular in the fall.  It’s natural to want to warm up this time of year. As Mother Nature starts to cool things off, that glass of iced tea doesn’t seem so appealing. Instead, a warm cup of tea or a spicy glass of warm cider feels heavenly.

And, luckily, you can warm up your energy just like you warm up your beverages! Essential oils extracted from spices are warming for the body and the heart: cardamom, cinnamon, and ginger.

Autumn Blend

The Autumn Blend is made to not only give you warm sensations, but also to help your immune system prepare and adapt to the cold weather that lies ahead. As it gets colder, the sun begins to hide more and more behind the clouds, making fall and winter gloomy. The psychological effects of these changes in the weather are low spirits, lack of energy, and may even send people into states of depression. The spirit needs to be lifted in the fall, and the Autumn Blend provides all that and more.

  • Ginger – Ginger is especially good for the fall and winter. The strong spicy aroma of ginger energizes the body, even when the cold weather causes lethargy and loneliness. Gingers bold spike of a scent is most useful in combating low spirit feelings that come naturally with the change in seasons.
