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.
As a kid, going back to school not only meant new clothes and school supplies, it also meant getting back to a routine after a summer of no routine at all. This time of year can bring on a lot of tension for kids and parents alike, which is why essential oils can be, well, essential to surviving the transition.
Your commute offers the opportunity to create a healthy transition into and out of your workday. You can set the tone for your day or your evening with some very simple practices. I like to use an essential oil car diffuser on long drives to incorporate natural aromas into my drive time. Why essential oils? Because they are powerful, effective at shifting a mood and, unlike a lot of chemical or synthetic fragrances, are non-irritating.
