I absolutely LOVE this time of the year! The crisp, cool air, the sweatshirts in the evenings, harvesting and the scents of cinnamon as my zucchini bread bakes in the oven, the list goes on and on. I also LOVE diffusing essential oils that can make the entire home smell of this wonderful season. Cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, orange…it’s all so warm, welcoming and wonderful! But did you know that when diffusing essential oils, the family and guests are benefiting from SO much more than an amazing aroma in the atmosphere?
Essential oils offer much more than a simple scent to a room. They are known for cleansing and purifying the air. And when breathed in, they offer many therapeutic benefits.
Let’s take a look at some of the awesome reasons why one would consider essential oils in the home. Take a look at some of the known benefits for each essential oil featured above.
Fall is in the Air
Cinnamon Bark: The warm, spicy aroma of cinnamon has been sought throughout the ages both as a valuable commodity and for its ability to improve wellness. Cinnamon is thought to promote healthy cardiovascular and immune function, and acts as an antiseptic.
Christmas Spirit: Don’t let the name throw you :) This is an amazing essential oil blend consisting of citrus, and spice, and a hint of evergreen. I LOVE diffusing this one for both Fall and Christmas. It is very uplifting, and may be valuable in protecting against airborne viruses and bacteria.
Clove: Has a sweet, spicy fragrance that is stimulating and revitalizing. Clove is the highest-scoring single ingredient ever tested for its antioxidant capacity on the ORAC scale.
Orange: This essential oil has a rich, fruity scent that lifts the spirit while providing a calming influence on the body. Orange brings peace and happiness to the mind. It is rich in the powerful antioxidant d-limonene and aids in maintaining normal cellular regeneration.
Nutmeg: has a sweet, warm, spicy scent similar to the spice commonly used in cooking. It has comforting and soothing benefits. Nutmeg also can help boost energy, and supports nervous and endocrine systems.
Ginger: has a warm, spicy fragrance that is energizing. Supportive of the digestive system, ginger is commonly used to soothe, comfort, and balance digestive discomfort.
Orange Spice: 10 drops orange plus 3-5 drops cinnamon bark.
Christmas Spirit smells perfect all by itself.
Pumpkin Pie: 5 drops cinnamon bark, 1 drop clove, 1 drop nutmeg
Autumn Zest: 6 drops orange, 3 drops clove, 2 drops cinnamon bark
Not only does the home smell absolutely amazing, but your family and friends will be blessed with some awesome benefits from breathing in the essential oils that are diffusing in your home.
