It has been said that autumn is the year’s last, loveliest smile. There is certainly plenty to smile about this time of year. The intense colors on the horizon, the warm scent of apple and earth, and the cool air outside the window make you really aware of just how alive the world is … for now. Winter is on the way … which makes autumn such a valuable time of transition.
Autumn is a great time to refocus your attention and to build your energy. Fall diffuser combinations give aromatherapy support to help you do just that. The best scents for this season tend to be warm, intense and grounding. Traditional fall combinations include wood, spice and citrus. The bewitching fusion of these three classes of essential oil balance and fuel a fall blend to give it energy, ambiance and impact. Try combining certified organic cedarwood, clove and orange for a classic combination. Or, if you want something with a little more zing, try a mix of certified organic sandalwood, cinnamon bark and lime. Each combination will give you nuanced energy and mood, but both are great for the time of year.
Citrus oils such as certified organic orange and lime are classic tools for supporting mood and natural energy … especially when sunshine hours begin to dwindle. The balancing and grounding effects of a wood essential oils like certified organic cedarwood and sandalwood help to balance a blend and hold the scent together. The spice is for warmth and personality … but there is plenty of flexibility within a blend recipe for your preference. Choose a spice that you like, but that is not too intense for your family (some oils are considered too “hot” for young skin, and can cause irritation). Use less of the spice essential oil if you think that it might be an issue … an experiment with ratios until you find the perfect fall blend.
Cozy Home Diffuser Recipe
Combine all oils in a diffuser with room temperature water. Mist indoors to clear the room of a stuffy ambiance and for aromatherapy benefits such as positive attitude and focused motivation. Experiment with ratios and oils to find your favorite combination for the fall season.
Fall is here, and you can definitely feel it. Red leaves tumble to the ground and the morning air greets you with a crisp bite. There is a transition happening at our house too. Windows that have remained (more or less) open since the middle of May get pulled resignedly closed. The black canvas cover is pulled over the grill like a shroud. Sidewalk chalk and rollerblades are traded for Legos and indoor comic books. Everyone is moving back indoors.
Since we have to get more cozy for the next few months, I make sure our indoor space is as inviting as possible. Essential oils help with that. First, I make sure that the atmosphere in our shared closed space is inviting. When the windows get closed it can be surprising how quickly the air can turn stuffy with the smell of dust and of bodies in close proximity. It’s an easy proposition to fill a diffuser and create a space that feels healthy and clean. These natural scents help my family to be naturally calm and motivated. The season calls for sweet and grounding scents like certified organic ginger, sandalwood and clove. These cheering and motivating scents are perfect for cooler days and shorter daylight. They work to give feelings of natural energy, emotional stability and bright attention. I especially love this combination during after school hours when my family is transitioning from the stress of the day to the slower-paced evening.
In fall, my family tends to gather more often around the kitchen table … to chat, to snack, to argue, and even to play board games (once they’ve worked through their computer time and finished arguing). We love that time together, and I make it better by purifying the kitchen atmosphere with my essential oil diffuser. Although I love my kitchen space, it can sometimes smell greasy or stale from the lingering aromas of meals long past. I create an instantly inviting space by diffusing powerful cleansing and uplifting citrus in N8 Essential’s certified organic Energize Blend. It creates a sweet and welcoming atmosphere in my kitchen and makes our family game time a little more rewarding and spirited.
