Hooray for Octobers!

It's about time!
That's what I always think when I start to feel those chilly mornings and the tops of the trees begin to turn scarlet. A cup of hot coffee wrapped in a blanket on the back porch, pulling on a warm hoodie when the sun dips behind the hills, and seeing the beautiful colors of autumn intensify overnight--so many things to love about this time of year!
Along with those can come runny noses, little coughs, and sore throats...no fun! Make sure to keep your immune system healthy this season by avoiding sugar, eating lots of clean, whole foods, and of course using your essential oils!

+ Cinnamon Bark
Give me all the yummy fall diffuser blends with this oil. No scented candles needed for fall (or ever!!) when you have your diffuser and some oils. Supporting our bodies AND our homes smell ammmazing!

Here are some fall diffuser blend ideas with Cinnamon Bark:

FALL HARVEST - 1 drop Clove, 3 drops Cinnamon Bark and 4 drops Tangerine.
SNICKERDOODLE: (can I get an Amen?!) 5 drops Stress Away, 3 drops Cinnamon Bark.
PUMPKIN PIE: 5 drops Cinnamon bark, 1 drop Clove, 1 drop Nutmeg.

Soooo…. apparently the Cinnamon Bark aroma attracts wealth. I can’t promise dollar bills coming at you… but, why not?!!!  Also a Vitality oil, this oil supports the circulatory system, cardiovascular system, and digestive system. Also a heavy hitter for stabilizing blood sugar levels! I know it’s too good to be true that something can be part of smelling like a cookie and good for your digestion but it’s real friends - and heck - free! WOOT!

+ Pine
We have been using a LOT of Pine, and really all and any tree, essential oils around here. If you hop on the good old DuckDuckGo and plug in some key words, you’ll find some really interesting research on pine needle tea and essential oils, and the compounds they contain. I haven’t dipped into the pine needle tea yet, but I am using all the tree oils I can. (Northern Lights Black Spruce, Idaho Blue Spruce, White Fir, White Light, Idaho Grand Fir, Believe) 
We are diffusing them constantly, and I’ve made rollers for the kids to use daily down their spines and feet. I’ve added it to our wellness rollers too! Sometimes we add a lil oregano and copaiba too 🙂

add oils to a 10ml roller and top with carrier oil

+ Nutmeg:
Another wonderful fall single that I have to talk about as a vitality oil because it is an adrenal support powerhouse! Around the holidays our adrenals can get taxed with later evenings, more sugar in the diet and added stress; place a drop under your tongue or swap a drop in the inside of your cheek and thank me later. This will give you some added energy for the day too. Also supports the production of melatonin - the hormone of SLEEP!! Good sleep = a supported immune system!! And I looove nutmeg in my holiday baking and holiday diffuser blends!

✨ 250PV // CLOVE, 15ml
   // COPAIBA, 5ml

+ Clove
This oil is the MOST concentrated antioxidant known with an ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) value of over 1,000,000. By comparison the ORAC score for blueberries is only 2,400. 😳 We’re talking serious immune system support! Since it also comes as a vitality, it’s wonderful to dilute and rub on the gums for oral health. 
Fave for teething babes (1 tsp olive oil, 1 drop clove, 5 drops copaiba. add to a dropper bottle and rub a drop on gums as needed!)

Aromatically, Clove encourages sleep, stimulates dreams, and creates a sense of protection and courage, wonderful for the respiratory system. 

+ Copaiba
Tooth or gum feeling sore? This is your BFF. This is a must have for teething babies too! I used to rub this neat (without carrier oil) right on sore gums, put a drop on a pacifier, or even use on a split lip or sore. This oil (also a vitality oil) is great for inflammation and supports intestinal and gut health! (Suffer from tummy troubles? You need this!)  It helps the body as it flushes toxins!!! And fluids!! If you have a baby/are pregnant - EVERY single one of you mamas who births NEEDS to use this everyday. Helps keep the baby blues away, helps flush fluids, and helps support the body's recovery after birth.  This is one of the key ingredients in Stress Away, so when you are feeling stressed, grab this oil, and apply it generously. This is such a good addition to your Ningxia Red too, or a drop under the tongue.
