Fall is a Time When
Nature Draws Inward and People Feel Less
Fall is definitely a season of transition and
adjustment. Fall can bring great relief from
the hot, humid and soupy summer. The climate
becomes drier, cooler, breezier and fresher.
Being outdoors is more pleasant so people are
out and about and more physically active. But,
fall is also a time when the summer greenery
fades, leaves dry up and fall from the trees
and most herbaceous plants die back. Daylight
hours diminish as well. In general, fall is a
time when nature draws inward and people feel
In the fall, people return to their routines:
school, work and other duties. Whereas summer
is whimsical and playful, fall is structured
and productive. For some, fall is a time to
get motivated, focus, concentrate and start
new projects. For others, fall is
unsettling and can make them melancholy,
gloomy, anxious or even depressed.
Fall brings with it some physical issues as
well. Many people suffer from allergies and
the associated symptoms
such as nasal congestion, headaches, sneezing
and itchy eyes and throat. Colds and flus
become more prevalent. Eczema, psoriasis and
other dry skin conditions can flair up with
drier air, lower temperatures and less
exposure to sunlight.
Oils can help in this transition. For
particular issues try these remedies.

newness that fall is coming and
opportunities are endless. It can also means a host of new germs,
schedules, and stress.
I want to share a handful of
essential oils you might want to consider having
on hand for the upcoming year.
To apply, I use a carrier oil that is a fatty
oil like coconut oil or almond oil. I would use
1-2 drops of essential oil per teaspoon of fatty

Blend: This oil is to get
everybody (including moms and dads) up,
energized and ready for the day. It is rich in
the powerful antioxidant d-limonene which
supports the immune system and overall health.
The scent is known to bring about a sense of
well-being, creativity, and feelings of joy (all
things we need in those rushed mornings to get
our day started). It
will also freshen the air in your home and kill
airborne bacteria – bonus!
Come on, we all need a little help in this area,
is a wonderful blend of oils that is
specifically designed to assist with mental
clarity and eliminate brain fog. If your
children need a little extra edge
to concentrate and assimilate new ideas, B-Power
might just do the trick. This oil helps get
oxygen to the brain quickly. It supports the
limbic system of the brain, increases mental
capacity and removes negative programming from
One of the most amazing things about B-Power is
that it can help repair brain damage from
commercial drugs which inhibit serotonin
metabolism. Serotonin is needed to regulate
mood, appetite, sleep, muscle contraction,
memory and learning. B-Power can
also dissolve petrochemicals and toxins that are
in so many products we use daily and lead to the
brain fog so many of us feel.

is one of the best immunity boosting oils! We
use X Plagueon
the bottoms of the kids feet before heading out
anywhere with lots of germs, especially at the
beginning of the school year when kids are
exposed to a host of new germs. I have also used
this topically undiluted for my own case of
strep throat. (Without question, diluteX Plague if
using on your kids throats as the cinnamon bark
oil would be irritating for a child.) Lemon:
This is a wonderful detoxifying oil. When our
kids are stuffy or have gunk built up that needs
to break up and get out of their system, we
apply lemon and a carrier oil to their chest. Respiratory Sinus Relief
I often use this in conjunction with lemon and X Plague.
It’s great for respiratory congestion, sore
throats, sinus problems, coughs and bronchitis. Tea

for anything bacterial or fungus related. It’s
one I love having on hand for everyone in the
house. Uses include toenail fungus or athlete’s

Peppermint is fantastic for soothing
indigestion and heartburn. It’s also great for
nausea and nasal congestion. Know this oil is
cooling, so only use 1-3 drops and apply with
a carrier oil in children. (Sidenote: I also
use 2 drops peppermint in carrier oil, down
the spine and the backs of knees if they are
running a high, high fever. This has brought
down a fever many times, for me, and the grand
When you need a little more.
This is one of my all-time favorite oils! It
smells like sleep to me at this point! It’s
incredibly soothing and relaxing. This would
be a great oil for kids as they head back to
the classroom and need to get to bed earlier
and have a restful night of sleep. Tranquility
is also used frequently for panic attacks,
teeth grinding, colicky babies and for those
dealing with ADD and ADHD.
Lavender: Lavender is the
#1 soothing smell for most people. People
tend to have deeper, more restful sleep when
lavender is used at night. Lavender oil is
also considered the Swiss Army knife
of oils, as it’s great for a variety of
concerns including: bites, rashes, cuts, sun
burns, eczema, dermatitis, seasonal allergies,
hay fever, and burns. When in doubt, I use

increase focus, mental alertness, brain

A simple drop of Lavender
warmed between the palms can invoke an
instant sense of calm. But harnessing the true
power of essential oils is both an art and a
science. Blending these intense oils can take
their individual properties to the next level,
interacting together to perform therapeutic
miracles. For example, a whiff of bergamot
oil can calm anxiety, ylang

can help with perspiration.
A great blend is all about balancing notes --
typically a top, middle , and base, though
some blends don't require a base -- to create
a balanced and effective aroma.
The top note is the first scent impression,
which gives way to the middle note--the star
of the show. The base note gives the blend its
staying power and usually comes to the
forefront much later. Blending these three
notes is all about creating a ratio that
results in a harmonious cocktail that works
(olfactorily or topically, depending on the
blend) to address specific moods or ailments.
A good rule of thumb is to use approximately 30
percent top note, 50 percent middle, and 20
percent base. If the blend doesn't require a
base note round it up to about 40 percent top
and 60 percent middle.
call this one: Joyful The sweet scent of this blend makes
you feel all warm and fuzzy -- euphoric, even.
Don't forget prayer and listen to your body
as you take anything. Remember that even
doctors are only practicing.
God Bless each of you in your quest for health.
