10 Essential Oil Recipes for Re-Creating Our Favorite Scents of Fall Posted on 26 Oct 08:48
Talk about nostalgia… Who doesn’t have layers and layers of pleasant memories tied to the distinct scents of fall? Younger versions of ourselves pioneering wooded pathways… The snapping of twigs beneath our feet… The sharp scent of pine. Stress-free, giggling versions of ourselves bundled up in jackets, rolling around in piles of fresh-raked leaves… The sounds of crisp afternoon winds as they whistle through naked branches.
Essential oils help us to access these happier places in space and in time. Sure, they’re healthy and beneficial in a number of other ways; but there’s something to be said for the way a specific scent can transport you with such precision and immediacy. Can you bring to mind the sticky-sweet memory of going apple picking? You sure can now! Relish the following recipes along with all the pleasant memories they evoke.
And don’t forget - the easiest, most fragrant way to enjoy these recipes is through a diffuser. If you don’t already have one, you need one! Check out the Healing Solutions Ultrasonic Diffuser here.

A NOTE ABOUT QUALITY
It’s important for you to know that not all essential oils are created equal. Many essential oil companies offer “fragrance oils” in place of 100% pure therapeutic-grade essential oils, which may mean that the oil has been diluted by harmful chemical additives.
What makes an essential oil therapeutic is the percentage of volatile compounds it contains. A high-quality essential oil will not have been diluted or adulterated with harmful chemicals. Healing Solutions essential oils are guaranteed to be 100% pure therapeutic-grade. Each oil has been tested to ensure that every customer gets only the purest and most potent end product.
