This time of year is a brief season of equilibrium between summer and winter. The earth is balanced between the two extremes of the year: the Midsummer Solstice, the longest day, and the Midwinter Solstice, the longest night. It’s a time of perfect balance when the weather’s not too hot or cold and days and nights are the same length. This time of year life seems to naturally pause to re-calibrate. Consider taking advantage of fall’s seasonal shift to create a sense of healthy balance in your home and life.

This time of year comes with delicious aromas of seasonal baking, soul soothing aromas of mulled cider, and cool crisp fresh air. Warm sweaters, boots and bon fires. What’s not to love. Many say it’s their favorite time of year, myself included.

Why not bring a little of the fall outdoors into your home? With essential oils in a diffuser it’s easy to do and the aromas can bring feelings of warmth, comfort and maybe thoughts reminiscent of childhood.

I use essential oils daily with roll ons, in my diffuser, and/or massages. I’ve incorporated them into my post-workout recovery, use them to for headaches, to help destress and anytime I’m having a hard time falling asleep.

Essential oils are a staple in my home retreat where I relax, practice yoga and meditate. They’ve become an integral part of my self care.

Essential oils have also become my signature as a yoga teacher. I use them at the end of every class with a soothing neck and shoulder massage or maybe a refreshing chilled essential oil washcloth. Lately my favorite is a lovely balance and grounding blend that welcomes the seasonal change.
