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.
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.
