Autumn Essential Oils

Autumn is the season for balancing light and dark and can be a struggle for adjustment or even feeling stuck, letting go, and accepting that everything changes. It is a time of inner reflection and preparation before winter arrives.

Some people don’t like autumn as the days get darker and shorter, the temperature drops, and we can start to catch the sniffles and bugs that winter can bring. It is possible to embrace this season, and keep a healthy mind, body and soul. There is joy in every moment, life is ever evolving, and we can use mother nature to support us through our journey. Essential oils have the unique ability to soothe the mind, elevate the spirit and help heal the physical.

Essential oils associated with Autumn are:

Ginger, Clove, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Lemon, Sweet Orange, Patchouli, Sage, Sandalwood, Frankincense & Myrrh.

Letting go of Emotions When we are struggling with the mental and emotional challenges that the autumn change can bring. These essential oils can be used to help bring back some balance and positivity.

My favourite essential oils for letting go are: -

Bergamot– helps you let go of anger, anxiety, loneliness, insecurity, and fear.

Cedarwood– helps you overcome meekness.

Frankincense– elevates and stimulates the mind. ...

Geranium– helps you let go of wanting to please everyone.

Accepting Change & Transformation

“The only constant is change."

As temperature drops to the tune of leaves falling, autumn illustrates the beauty of letting go. Autumn is the time to face this darkness, a physical reminder of that which we must cull within ourselves.
