Essential Oils for Autumn

autumnoils

We have been using essential oils as a holistic part of our family’s Daily Rhythm for a few years now. You don’t quite understand how energetically powerful they are until you start using them on a regular basis. We use them in many ways. We have a small diffuser in each bedroom as well as one we rotate through living spaces, we add them to our homemade cleaning products, we add a few drops to homemade lotions, perfumes and bugspray and we also add them to our homemade saltdough.

I usually change our essential oil rhythm each season- swapping out scents to create mood and to prepare for the shift in bodily energy and function.

Note to Everyone: I am not a certified aromatherapist and many oils (eg. Clove Bud, Eucalyptus etc. Are not recommended for use around young children. Please do your research and understand proper dillution ratios in order to use these oils safely with your family. Some oils below are not safe for use on the body. Again, this information is meant as inspiration to get you thinking about scent combinations. Please do the research needed to decide which scents are appropriate for your family’s ages and what oils you can use safely and how.

    Hi there
    I am in Canada too and am wondering what brand of essential oils you prefer and where you purchase them? Thanks!

      Hi Kristine, Sorry I was slow to reply! I am still trying to figure that out myself! I brought (snuck??) my essential oils here from Australia- I was using Young Living Oils there. But there are not nearly as many Young Living oils available in Canada. I am on the look out for a quality brand so if you know of any I’d be interested. I know DoTerra is supposed to be amazing but not sure they deliver to Canada!

    Hi! I personally use and have for several years Amritia Aromatherapy. They are certified organic and many are raw and wild crafted. Great company and great products.

    Hi Meagan,

    When I lived in Toronto I went through the same thing trying to figure out an EO brand. I just sent you an email with some info. Doterra does deliver to Canada and I’d be happy to chat if you want more info! Can’t wait to try the thanksgiving blend!!

    I love getting my essential oils from Mountain Rose Herbs. Organic and wild crafted.
