Holiday Cheer using Essential Oils
This is absolutely my favorite time of the year. The cooking, decorating, music and yes we can not forget. Those wonderful smells. Smells that take us back to our childhood. Mom or Granna cooking pies, cakes, gingerbread cookies. Yummy!
So for the days that I am not being Martha Stewart in the kitchen, I use my diffuser and put therapeutic grade essential oils in them.
My favorite is cinnamon, nutmeg, and orange essential oils. Besides smelling like apple pie and cookies all rolled into one, the benefits are wonderful for the entire family.
Orange oil may bring peace and happiness to the mind and body and helps spread a little sunshine on thoughts that are gloomy. Orange creates a hostile environment for bacteria and viruses.
Cinnamon Bark oil may promote the feelings of joy. A possible catalyst to the other oils to enhance their benefits. It is said that it may have a stimulating and toning effect on the body especially the circulatory system.
Spruce oil may give a sense of grounding, creating balance, having us more open to receiving and giving. Creating a feeling of uplifting for the spirit and soothing the soul. It may help relieve anxiety. Spruce also creates a hostile environment for bacteria and viruses.
How to use besides diffusing. You may put a few drops on pine cones, cedar chips or on logs to burn in the fireplace. You might try it in your potpourri.
Last year I was very creative and put one drop of cinnamon and nutmeg essential oil in my organic homemade apple butter. I think I may be on to something.
