Winter has arrived. What are the top Essential Oils for this magical season?
Spice and citrus essential oils are some of the best essential oils to use during the season of fall. The weather is getting colder, darker and shorter. Spice and citrus scents are comforting; almost as comforting as warm apple pie.
Cinnamon, Clove, Nutmeg and Cardamom oils are all comforting, warming and energizing. It is recommended you use these oils with a diffuser or by diluting them with a carrier oil (such as grape seed, almond or jojoba carrier oils). It is not suggested to put spice oils directly on the skin, as the oils are very concentrated and may irritate some skin types.
Mix some spice and citrus oils together; they work well together. Orange works particularly well with Cinnamon, Clove and Nutmeg oils.
Sandalwood and Frankincense are also earthy oils that are suited to the fall season. Blending them with citrus oils also works well.
If you are feeling cold, achy and tired, you would do well with ginger essential oil. Ginger oil also helps with nausea.
Fall and Winter also bring on seasonal blues (or depression). Do you need some cheering up on these dark and cold mornings? Need some motivation to get you out of bed?
Try adding a few drops of Orange, Bergamot and Lemon into your diffuser. These oils are known to be mood boosting and energizing. Another recommended choice by us is Pink Grapefruit essential oil. It too is mood boosting and energizing; as well as having weight loss properties.
If you've read my other blogs, you known that Tea Tree and Eucalyptus oils are great for the cold and flu season, but the list doesn't end there. Try adding some Rosemary or Thyme oil to your Tea Tree oil for a great cold and flu remedy.
These remedies are all natural and all the oils are available at Essential Oils by Mistico Mimi and are sure to get you and your family through Fall and Winter with a healthy and with a smile.
