Link up: Leah, Young Living Consultant, Top five essential oils for the Autumn season.

Hello there, I’m Leah! I am so happy to be here on Raviolis & Waterworks!  I met Jaclyn through Instagram and our mutual love of bird watching.  I reside in Minnesota where my husband and I love to hike the state parks and enjoy the beautiful scenery with our puppy, Wilbur.

I am so excited and honored that Jaclyn asked me to share a bit about essential oils and the company I partner with, Young Living.  I started using their oils and loved them so much, I decided I just had to share them with others.  Young Living is known for their top-quality, pure essential oils.  They guarantee that everything they produce is free of synthetics or harmful chemicals with their Seed to Seal Promise (link).  Put simply, they have full control of the entire process of sourcing essential oils.  They put great care into what they produce, so we can reap the amazing benefits these plants have to offer! 

top five essential oils for the Fall

Let’s talk about 5 essential oils that will make your home smell warm and cozy, PERFECT for the fall season.  How? Using an essential oil diffuser!  Young Living has beautiful diffusers if you’re looking for one.  Simply add water and 2-15 drops of essential oil to a diffuser and it will disperse the aroma throughout your home for hours. So, grab your coffee, tea, hot chocolate and come learn about how essential oils can help set the tone in your home.

Top 5 Favorite Essential Oils for the Fall.

Opening a bottle of Cinnamon Bark is like sipping on hot cider by the light of a bonfire or waking up on a bright crisp morning and eating a cinnamon roll fresh from the oven.  Add this oil to your diffuser to make your house smell good enough to eat.  This oil is different
from the cinnamon in your spice rack, it is distilled from the outer bark of the cinnamon tree.  This essential oil is safe to ingest, add it to your hot apple cider! I suggest the toothpick
method: dip the end of a toothpick into your bottle of oil, then swirl the toothpick through your beverage.

Fill the room with the sweet, warm scent of Cedarwood.  This tree grows up to 120 feet tall and can live more than 300 years.  It will give your bedroom the perfect aroma to snuggle under the covers.  It softens and warms most essential oils that you pair with it, I love adding lavender or Orange.  Not only is it a cozy and woodsy scent, but it does wonders for your hair and skin when applied topically!

What is a Bergamot? It’s a fruit! It’s part of the citrus family, about the size of an orange, but with a yellow green skin.  The rind of the fruit is cold pressed to extract the oil. Bergamot has a slightly spicy, citrus aroma.  The smell is so uplifting and pairs well with other oils on this list!  Fun fact about Bergamot, it is often used as a top note in perfume.  The uplifting aroma is perfect to add with Cedarwood and Vanilla to make your home feel oh so cozy.

If you’ve ever heard of Young Living before, you’ve probably heard of Thieves! Exclusive to Young Living- Thieves is a blend of clove, lemon, cinnamon bark, eucalyptus radiata, and rosemary essential oils.  A powerhouse of oils that help keep your body systems well.  The history/legend of this blend of oils is so fascinating, go google it!  Put a drop (or use the toothpick method) in your tea for those days when you are not feeling 100%.  Not only does it do good for our bodies, but it smells like a fresh autumn breeze.  Paired with Vanilla, 
diffuse this to set the stage for a quiet, peaceful night in. I can’t live without Thieves.  It is perfect for fall.

I could not talk about cozy fall vibes without mentioning Vanilla.  Young Living’s Vanilla is not an extract or an absolute, both of which contain mostly alcohol and do not blend well with essential oils.  They extract it in such a way that yields a Vanilla oleoresin in fractionated coconut oil that diffuses and blends beautifully with essential oils.  The aroma of Vanilla brings a sense of comfort and yields a warm environment.  Pair it with Cinnamon Bark and it will smell like you’re baking cookies in the kitchen.  Whatever you pair it with, it will give alllll the cozy vibes.

Honorable mentions: Clove, Nutmeg, Orange, Palo Santo, Black Spruce

  1. Cinnamon pumpkin is my fave fall scent. But there’s no scent I hate more than bergamot! Lol, I’ve never understood how it can be a citrus fruit, because it smells nothing like one.

    1. I remember you saying this when I posted about the Duke Cannon soap! I thought of you when we were putting this together. I'm going to invest in the cedarwood since it sounds fabulous. :) My current scent for the Fall is "farmer's market" and the only way to describe it is that it smells like Autumn. lol

    2. You have it at Avon, I've just ordered their new festive berries spritz and also chocolate roasted hazelnut foot cream :)

    3. I haven't heard of Avon in a long time! My mom used to bring home those catalogues when I was in high school. My favorite was the Cucumber Melon and Plumeria scented body spray.

  3. Not sure I've ever smelt Bergamot, or heard of it lol

    One like cedarwood that keeps the skin from drying out is a win indeed.

    1. That's the one that I'm after. Cedarwood for the win :)

  4. I love Cedarwood. Vanilla is a top scent I like too. My best friend only uses oils to scent her home. I'm more of a wax melt girl. I met a small business owner at the craft fairs a few months back and she has me addicted to her products. I've even ditched bath and body works in favor of her tarts and candles. So, so good!
