The arrival of fall brings autumn leaves and cozy nights by the fireplace sipping hot chocolate, tea, or your favorite cup of coffee. It's also a time to transition from the energy of the summer months to the more introspective and reflective days of winter.

Fall is the perfect time for renewal, shadow work, and journaling. This is the perfect time to introduce aromatherapy into your routine to support your mind, body, and soul. Essential oils are concentrated plant extracts believed to have a wide range of therapeutic benefits. They can be used diffusing or by topical application to help support emotional and spiritual well-being.

How to use essential oils:

Spiritually, aromatherapy, when combined with meditation, may help us in deepening our connection and experiencing inner calm.
Aromatherapy may be used in many different kinds of ways throughout the months of fall and winter. Here are a few suggestions:

To create a relaxing atmosphere in your living space, add up to 3 drops of essential oil to your diffuser. When using essential oils in public, it is recommended to use an aromatherapy inhaler or an essential oil roll-on. Certain individuals may be impacted by essential oil diffusers. Make sure to keep this in mind.

    Tips for using essential oils safely:

    • Do not use essential oils internally unless you are under the supervision of a qualified healthcare professional.
    • Avoid using essential oils on children or pets without consulting with a healthcare professional first.
