Fall Into Essential Oils

Fall is in the air and it’s my favorite time of year!  The change in season reminds me of back home in upstate NY and the crispness in the air that will soon follow feels good.  While the cool feels good outside, the warmth of inside is accompanied by traditions of baked goods and savory meals.  Welcome autumn and use your essential oils to enhance the atmosphere.  Here are a couple of diffuser recipes to enjoy the wonderful aromas of season.

 

Ginger Snaps

  • 4 drops Ginger
  • 2 drops Cassia
  • 2 drops Cinnamon

The combination of ginger, cassia and cinnamon is very complementary and bring a warmth to the room.  The three oils have immune supportive properties and aid in digestion.

Orange Cinnamon Buns

  • 4 drops Wild Orange
  • 3 drops Cinnamon
  • 3 drops Cardamom

The addition of wild orange to this recipe brings a stimulating and uplifting quality.  A great blend to use when hosting company during the holiday season.

Warm Pumpkin Spice

  • 3 drops Cinnamon
  • 3 drops Ginger
  • 2 drops Clove
  • 2 drops Cardamom

Clove brings an energizing and cleansing feel to the warming scent.  This is a great blend to enjoy while decorating around the house or simply getting school work done.
