There is more than a chill in the air. While I love using essential oils all year round, the Fall and Winter are my favorite times for my special blends of doTERRA oils. "Scents can have positive effects on mood, stress reduction, sleep enhancement, self confidence and physical and cognitive performance," says Theresa Molnar, executive director of the Sense of Smell Foundation. By becoming more aware of the way specific odors affect you personally, you may be able to enhance your health and well-being. Using essential oils can change your game and your mood.
I have a diffuser from doTERRA going in my house, right by my front door 24/7. I like to have a nice scent when I come in from the city outside, and along with good music and lighting this sets the stage for a peaceful and clean feeling house. Since it is well known that scent makes a huge difference in our moods and psychology so I find that my custom blends really enhance both.
In the mornings, I mix Peppermint and Eucalyptus in my diffuser for a fresh, clean wake up scent that energizes and invigorates.
For evenings, I blend Lavender and Patchouli for a calm and sensuous environment.
For holiday parties, I like to mix clove and cinnamon essential oils.
If I am feeling sleepy - Wintergreen and Pine make a nice combo and improves my cognitive function.
To clean the energy in the house try Wild Orange mixed with a little Lemon.
