Ahh … cocoa butter. It’s versatile, smells heavenly and truly loves dry, irritated skin. Better yet, it’s the go-to natural ingredient you can use to make a whole range of homemade skincare solutions – from lotions and salves, to belly balms and foot remedies.

In the winter months, using essential oils can bring many benefits. Specifically, taking a deep, cleansing breath is one thing that’s easily supported with aromatherapy. Eucalyptus oil, always a front-runner when diffusing or vaporizing, is a wonderful choice to help ease the complaints of cold weather. Not to mention the pleasant, fresh aroma of eucalyptus can bring life into the stale air of a home that has been tightly closed for the preservation of warmth in the winter.
Essential oils can do many things. One of their most important features is the ability to influence mood and emotion. At this time of year, oils with calming and relaxing properties are popular, but sometimes we can also use a boost to keep our spirits bright.
Essential oils can be used in the kitchen in a variety of ways – from cleaning and purifying to creating a mood. If your desire is to create a calm and soothing home, then setting the tone in the kitchen is the perfect place to start.
When diffusing essential oils in the kitchen, warming and grounding types are a great choice for inviting people in. Think of oils such as nutmeg, clove and cinnamon – especially during colder months – to bring a little spice to your space.
The changes that autumn brings can be linked to specific aromas that connect the natural world to our daily experiences. Sensory rituals using essential oils—like creating aromatherapy blends for home scenting—are subtle prompts to be present in the moment. Indulge in the season with this easy-to-make, autumn-inspired air freshener made from pure Aura Cacia essential oils.
Essential oils have been getting a lot of press lately — people are interested in learning about aromatherapy and how they can influence their lives with essential oils. Simply speaking, aromatherapy is the use of essential oils for health. Although we put a lot of emphasis on the word “aroma,” the true action of an essential oil goes beyond our sense of smell.
Our aromas affect people around us. When I’m traveling, I find myself confronted with the entire aroma spectrum of the human experience on airplanes, in cabs and on trains. Sometimes, I take a whiff and smile, but more often than not, I don’t.
