As I'm typing this the leaves on my backyard hickory trees are starting to turn yellow and give a hint of the crisp, cool, weather to come! One of my boys still loves to rake up a gigantic pile of leaves and see how fast he can run, jump, and bury himself in them. We are already getting firewood ready for our fall backyard bonfires and I can't wait until it's cool enough for us to enjoy an evening around the campfire since we now have two guitar pickers in our family.
The back and forth of fall seasonal changes (what's with this 80 degree weather?) is a reminder to me to stay on top of our wellness measures. I like to make both elderberry syrup and fire cider to keep in my fridge, and as a matter of course I make sure that I have specific oils on hand to use when we need them.
Here are my fall oil preps that I recommend for most people:
- Thieves diluted along your spine (there's now a new Thieves roll-on bottle that's all diluted/prepped for you)
- RC, Raven, or Breathe Again roll-on on your chest and opposite of your chest area on your back)
- Frankincense anywhere and everywhere (my preference is Sacred Frankincense, helps me focus, too)
- Hot honey tea with local Honey, 1 drop Thieves, Lemon, or Peppermint Vitality
- InnerDefense (not to take daily, but keep it close to use at the FIRST sign of any scratchy throat)
- Life 9 Probiotic & MightyPro Pre/Probiotic for the kids--a MUST for everyone #GutHealthEqualsImmuneHealth
- Thieves Cough Drops (I keep these in my purse to share, too)
- Daily 1oz Ningxia Red shot for each member of the family (we are OUT so I am ordering more this month)

Any cooks in the kitchen? add this vitality oil to your pasta sauce or salads - it is quite strong so a little goes a long way. (Exclusive to Essential Rewards.)
AromaEase (5ml): Think of this one as an alternative to DiGize, pretty much does the same job with a different aroma: minty and calming. Diffuse with Orange as a refreshing combo. Apply topically over the tummy for any tummy discomforts. This blend has lots of great oils for the digestive system such as peppermint (vitality) and Ginger (vitality). If you're traveling over the next few months, you're going to want to with have this at the ready...and if you indulge in a lil' too much Halloween treats.

Thyme (15 ml): This is a powerful oil to have on hand for to support the body during the winter season #googleit
. If you are an oiler, you need to learn how to use this one, as well as that Oregano, in a safe and effective way. Also, as a vitality oil, this oil supports the cardiovascular system, and is great oil for brain health.
Palo Santo (5ml): This little bottle of goodness does so many things! It comes from the same botanical family as Frankincense so you know all the reasons why you love frank? You will love Palo Santo for that as well (it's a grounding oil). Anyone do the Letting Go Protocol? Palo Santo is a great oil to diffuser before you do the protocol. Palo Santo means “sacred wood” and the tree it is harvested from actually has to lay dead on the forest floor for years before the right % of plant chemicals that we want in the oil are available to release in distillation. You could say that this tree dies to nourish other trees and plants in the forest. #lookitup
It really is an interesting creation of the Lord! Try diffusing it with Pine, Lemon, and a Northern Lights Black Spruce.
MultiGreens: So awesome that this is free this month! Get ready for a mini education:MultiGreens is a chlorophyll formula supplement that was created to boost vitality by working with glandular, nervous, and circulatory systems. MultiGreens is made with spirulina, alfalfa sprouts, barley grass, bee pollen, eleuthero, Pacific Kelp, and our essential oils. Y'all eating that stuff daily? Didn't think so.....It is a natural, sustainable energy source with bioactive sea vegetables that increase vitality, nutrient dense bee pollen, essential oils to increase assimilation, and an excellant source of chlorine which is critical for energy production. Bee pollen is loaded with tons of vitamins and minerals including potassium, calcium, magnesium, zinc, manganese, copper, and B vitamins. And that ELeuthero Root....amazing stuff - it boosts energy and reduces stress! (Double win!) It also strengthens lymphocyte function which strengthens the immune system. But what about those hormones and that thyroid which balance is crucial for maintaining good energy levels? Pacific Kelp is in there for just that! Pacific kelp supports thyroid function and helps to keep our hormones balanced and in check! And our oils....infused with Rosemary (supports our endocrine system), Lemon (immune support), Lemongrass (supports the Digestive system), and Melissa (energizes the body and fights against natural occurring inflammation)....and check out the price point on Melissa...yeah...pretty sweet that we get to consume that oil in this supplement. After taking this supplement, you'll likely notice a boost in energy level! Try the Energizer Bunny trio: a shot of Ningxia Red + Multigreens + a Super B tablet!
Our Seed to Seal Story Collection: (extra Tier at 400 PV)
When you spend 400pv this month you will get this collection of 10 ml oils that includes Lavender, Peppermint, and Tea Tree, three of our most used essential oils. What I love about this collection is that it comes in a small box and could be the easily gifted to someone!! It’s also a perfect “spa experience” in a box! This box plus some Epsom salts and a foot loofa and you’ve got yourself a little self-care essential oil infused experience for yourself or to gift.
So there you have the October line up! What are you excited to add to your collection this month?
Candles vs Diffusers: making the switch!
Y'all, let's talk about this! Did you know that headaches, respiratory issues, and fatigue can be traced right back to indoor air quality? The chemicals in candles, plug-ins, and air fresheners to cover up odors in our living spaces are also dumping a toxic load into our bodies as we breathe them in. If you break up with your candles and use essential oils to brighten up the environment of your home, those candles that once smelled so delicious to you will one day smell strange and artificial. If you've ever gone on a sugar fast for a time and eventually broke your fast with a Starbucks Frap (that will now taste horribly too sweet), you can get an idea of what it's like to finally break away from scenting your home with artificial fragrances. Once you switch to using an essential oils diffuser, you'll be amazed at how desensitized you really were to those toxins, and you'll understand why I bug everybody to de-candle and de-plug-in. Your health is worth it!
