You Should Use Essential Oils To Spice Up Your Home This Season

Written by: Brandi Monasco

With it being fall, I love to have my home smell just like it – the falling leaves, pumpkins, bonfires, warm apple pie, anything that smells like fall. It’s amazing!

It is never a good idea to use artificial products such as air sprays or candles. They can often be loaded with chemicals that could potentially harm yourself and your family. However, there is another way to make your home smell like fall without those chemical-laden products.

Essential oils!

Essential oils are now a household staple. They help make your home or office smell amazing, they can be used as natural household cleaners and plus, they have health and medicinal properties.

The best and most popular way to use essential oils is to diffuse them. Essential oil diffusers disperse essential oils into fine mists throughout the air. The mist is absorbed into the body through the respiratory system.

Your brain responds through different functions, such as the release of endorphins, which are natural pain and stress fighting chemicals.

Using a diffuser is the easiest way to disperse oils and also the most lasting. A diffuser can fill a room with therapeutic aromas rather quickly. Oils are believed to improve mood, improve immunity, ease the symptoms of a cold and freshen the air.

When you think of fall, what kind of essential oils do you use? Many people think of cinnamon and even orange, but there are a TON more than just that!

Here are a few ideas for blends and sprays to get you started!

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
