I have been using essential oils and aromatherapy to improve my health, immunity, and emotional well-being for years.

Why Diffuse Essential Oils?

The fall season is the time of year that people associate with warm, spicy scents. Essential oils are a great way to add warm, inviting and natural fragrances to your home this season. A great benefit of diffusing essential oils is that they do not irritate those with respiratory conditions, such as asthma, unlike some store-bought products. However, the best benefit of essential oils is that many of them purify the air and kill germs which may be lingering throughout your home. Read to learn which oils are popular to diffuse during the fall season and which blends you can use to create an inviting fall scent in your home.

Cinnamon essential oil is a very popular oil to diffuser during the fall months because of its characteristic spicy scent.

Where Do I Buy My Oils?

With their popularity, essential oils can be found and purchased practically anywhere. Since they are not regulated by the FDA, any company can call anything an essential oil. An oil sold at a drug store could be diluted, come from bad quality plants, or not tested to be free of unwanted chemicals and pesticides. In order to be sure you are inhaling a good quality and safe product, I highly recommend that you research the company you chose to purchase essential oils from. It is important to be sure that they have strict quality standards and test their products to be free of harmful chemicals or pesticides. I buy my oils from Plant Therapy, Doterra and Rocky Mountain Oils for their strict quality standards. These companies test every oil to be sure they are free of chemicals, are good quality, and their oils are never diluted.
