With the onset of the dreaded dark evenings and the weather turning gloomy, I feel like hiding away in my cosy home. I need to feel warm and my mind is turning to all things cocooning but also, smelling deliciously like autumn. As a trained aromatherapist, I love to experiment with essential oils and at this time of the year, I enjoy diffusing warming and woody natural scents and making my home even more serene.
AUTUMN ESSENTIAL OILS DIFFUSER BLEND
6 Drops of Sweet Orange Essential Oil
1 Drop of Patchouli Essential Oil
1 Drop of Ginger Essential Oil
Not only do essential oils make your home smell delightful, but they also have amazing healing benefits on your brain when you inhale their aromas:
Sweet Orange: I love the scent of sweet orange (citrus sinensis) even on its own – sweet, warm and sensual, this essential oil is also amazing for improving your mood and uplifting your mind and body.
Patchouli: This rich, oriental, woody and musky scent can also act as an aphrodisiac. Patchouli is extremely grounding and calming and works wonders when feeling anxious, angry and sad.
Ginger: This peppery, woody-spicy and exotic essential oil is a favourite of mine to use when lacking motivation and feeling exhausted.
