The crisp smell of leaves, the crunchy feel of twigs beneath our feet, and the beautiful colors of the leaves are some of the things we love about fall. The changing colors of nature during this time is inspiring and relaxing for most people. It’s a moment that brings out our creative side as well as leaves us with lots of memories to cherish in our hearts.
Essential oil blends can help to cement these fun times with family and friends. Associating a scent that helps the memory or a particular feeling is all a part of essential oils. And then we have the health benefits as an added bonus.
There’s something magical about the onset of fall, which is why so many people look forward to it every year. From apple picking to hayrides and pumpkin carving, there are so many activities you can do with your friends or family during this season. Use your essential oil blends to enhance these moments.
Aromatherapy Essential Oil Blends
When blending or mixing essential oils you are getting the very best essence of each individual oil. The longer the oil sits or marries (same as in cooking for marinating) the better. As in every case, there is a sweet spot of having just the right mixture to give you the scent you’re looking for. Because of nature even using the same essential oils by the same company, by the same distiller will sometimes give you a different scent. Mother nature is a lot of things but a cookie cutter she is not.
They also have the power to uplift, soothe, heal, and energize, for just a few of their properties. When you blend oils together and double or sometimes triple their powerful attributes you find a few amazing things happening.
- You smell good
- You feel good
- It’s contagious.
To get you into the spirit of things, here are some essential oil blends that will help you enjoy the fall season even more:
Aromatherapy Mist for Boosting Your Mood
During the fall, you will notice that the weather is growing colder. If you’re not careful, your mood may start to reflect these changes. When this happens, you may have a hard time enjoying your time outdoors since you may be feeling too cold. To avoid feeling extra chilly, make sure to layer yourself up with clothing and/or a blanket when you’re outdoors.
However, you can also use essential oils to help boost your mood and keep you warm at the same time! To do so, you can make your own aromatherapy mist using either Peppermint or Eucalyptus essential oils. These two scents are known for their warming properties, which makes them perfect for this time of the year.
Breathe Easy Blend to Help with Congestion
Everyone gets sick during the fall, and they don’t discriminate against age, gender, or status. Whether you have a cold or have been diagnosed with allergies, medical experts recommend applying a blend of Eucalyptus and Peppermint essential oils.
Both of these oils have anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, and decongestant properties that can help reduce your congestion. To make this blend, you will need 1 drop of Eucalyptus essential oil and 2 drops of Peppermint essential oil.
Simply add the essential oils to a 1-ounce spray bottle filled with distilled water. Shake the bottle well to mix the ingredients and keep the bottle in a cool, dark place until you’re ready to use it.
Cozy Vanilla Candlelight to Help You Chill Out
With the fall comes the colder weather, and that may leave you feeling a bit stressed out and agitated. During this time, you may also find that your mood is in a bit of a slump. If you want to enjoy the fall season to the fullest, you must take care of your mental health.
If you’re feeling stressed out or anxious during this time, try using Vanilla essential oil. Vanilla essential oil has a warm, rich scent that can help calm your nerves and reduce feelings of anxiety. When making your Vanilla essential oil blend, try to get the highest possible amount of Vanillin content. Vanillin is the main compound in Vanilla essential oil that’s responsible for its calming properties.
Fall is the perfect season to enjoy nature’s beauty and get recharged for the winter season. With the crisp weather, it’s best to stay indoors, enjoy a warm cup of hot chocolate, and snuggle up with a good book. During this time, you can use essential oils to your advantage and enjoy the benefits that come with it.
Essential oils can help you feel more relaxed, less stressed, and can even help you get better sleep. Now that you know which essential oil blends are best for the fall, go ahead and try them out so you can enjoy this season to the fullest!
