The fall season will soon arrive with its unique activities that are especially perfect to enjoy with friends and family members. For many of us, it’s a favorite time. It’s the time for back to school activities, for closing up the summer cottage, for storing away the boat or camper, and for buying fall clothing. It’s also a time for enjoying activities like bonfires, apple picking, and haunted houses. Prepare for these enjoyable times with an essential oil or two. Whether you prefer to enjoy a single oil or a combination of oils, there are many fall scents to help you get in the Autumn mood. To help with that, here are five MONQ blends that are perfect for your favorite fall activity this year.
Sitting around the bonfire in a cool, fall evening is a favorite activity for many. While soaking in the warmth from the flames, you can have great conversation as marshmallows are roasted and s’mores are eaten. The Forest blend is perfect to bring along for this kind of event. True to its name, it represents nature and peace and is composed primarily of Black Spruce, Douglas Fir, and Sandalwood. The combination reduces stress and creates a feeling of wellness and peace. Also, Douglas Fir assists in clearing up your sinuses so that you can breathe easier. The feeling that you get when you’re surrounded by trees, breathing in the clean air is what you get with the Forest blend.
Two of the most popular and fun activities during fall are picking apples at the apple orchard and finding big orange pumpkins in the pumpkin patch. These activities are perfect to do with family and friends. These are nostalgic events for many, so they are great for children and adults alike! Enjoy this special fall time with Happy. This essential oil blend consists of primarily Fennel, Thyme, and Vanilla, all of which work together to create a sense of joy and kindness. Vanilla essential oil, for example, works to lift your general mood by replacing feelings of negativity with a more positive outlook.1
Cozying up to that special someone in the cool, fall weather is a perfect and unique way to express your love. The Love essential oil blend brings to mind the mood that you feel when you’re involved in cozy activities. The Love blend includes Cacao, Davana, and Siam Wood, all working together to give you a sense of natural, unforced passion. Cacao, for example, is an aphrodisiac; essential oils, foods, drinks, etc., that stimulate your sexual desire. Cacao contains lots of life-enhancing ingredients including libido-enhancing arginines and methylxanthines. You’ll also find phenylethylamine which is considered a “love chemical”.2 That feeling of love and joy is best when it is created naturally, and the Love blend helps with that.
Sleepy is an essential oil blend that is great to take along during your fall walk while you stroll alone or in the company of someone special. It’s a calming blend that encourages tranquility and gratitude. It’s good for unwinding after a hard day at work and putting you in a relaxed mood. Sleepy contains a combination of Chamomile, Kava, and Lavender. These essential oils all work together to induce relaxation and aid in sleep. Lavender, for example, not only calms and induces sleep, but it helps to ease nerves and negative emotions.3
The Fall season is a great time for cuddling next to your favorite person, but it is also known to be one of the spookiest times of the year. From visiting haunted houses, to planning and attending Halloween parties, the Fall is a great time to add a little scare into your life. However, for some other adults, watching a scary movie or attending a Haunted House is fun, but it always comes with a sense of apprehension. The Zen essential oil blend is perfect for those spookier times. This is a blend that consists primarily of Frankincense, Sweet Orange and Ylang Ylang. Zen does what the name implies. As you take it in, you begin to feel a sense of peace and presence. Your nervousness and fears begin to fade away. Frankincense, for example, helps you to feel grounded. It helps to relieve symptoms of nervousness, and it promotes relaxation. In addition, Ylang Ylang helps to literally take the edge off by lowering your blood pressure.3
