If it Doesn’t Feel Like Fall, Then Make it Smell Like Fall

We all know how I miss the Fall, so I won’t linger on that point. But rather, share how to enjoy what I can of the season.

Blogging helps keep me stay seasonal, because it’s the date and not the weather that truly denotes time. So with that being said, one of my favorite ways to enjoy the Fall, is to smell it!

Essential Oil Blends are great for so many things and diffusing them throughout the day is the best! My favorite Fall blend is called “Fall Immunity” and these are all top picks in my house:

Essential Oil Lovers, Be Careful Using Oils This Summer Season

Essential oils came into my life and I’ve loved them ever since. I use oils for my allergies, my face, to prevent sickness, and so much more!

Essential Oils for the Summer

Essential oils are great for summertime use. Tea tree oil wards off bugs and Copaiba is soothing and restorative after too much time in the sun.

Be Careful With These Essential Oils in the Summer

But please, whatever you do, don’t oil up with anything citrus during the summer! Oils like Lemon, Grapefruit, Lime, Orange, Coriander, and even Ginger are photo sensitive. Grapefruit-Whole-&-SplitWearing these oils in the sunshine can and will burn you.  Don’t do it.

Still want the great effects of these oils? Use them at night! If you end your day with light sensitive oils you reap the benefits without any negative side effects.

Use oils on skin areas not prone to constant sunlight. This is the safest way to protect yourself and your skin.

My Favorite Essential Oils For The Summer

  • In the diffuser, grapefruit and lime create a light summer scent. Lemon and Lavender is a fresh, calming scent too.
  • Tea tree keeps the bugs away as does Lavender.
  • Did you get a little too much sun? Use oils like Copaiba, Lavender, and Frankincense soothe and protect you skin.

Essential oils are great year around but it’s important to pay attention to what oils you’re using and when.
