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.

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.


Any of the oils mentioned in this article can be purchased separately as needed. But for significantly added value, consider shopping our Essential Oil Sets. This is a great way to save money and expand your collection and shipping is FAST and FREE over $30!
