Essential Oils for Well-Being this Season

The winter months are fast approaching. My family enjoys skiing, skating, tobogganing with hot chocolate, and of course sitting by our fireplace in our warm winter wears. We also have the long winter days with colds, coughs, flus, respiratory and digestive problems. We are indoors, more away from the warm sunny days which can give us a bit of depression and mood swings. The dry air of our home, school and workplaces causes respiratory and skin problems. Dust, bacteria, viruses and mold can get trapped in our rooms, causing issues with sinuses, allergies, asthma and contagions.

Can you relate?

I’m sharing some Fall/Winter essential oil blends to keep your home going strong all season long.

Tip: Use a diffuser in the areas that are used the most in your home!

Essential Oils for the Fall Season

Peppermint

So good for the sinuses!

Cinnamon

Will help clean the air of harmful bacteria and viruses! Definitely a must.

Orange

Citrus oils are purifying! Orange is uplifting, something we need when our mood is down.

Eucalyptus

Tree essential oils are usually great for the respiratory system. Eucalyptus is soothing to breathe in during a chest cold or any illness from colds.
