October is my absolute favorite month of the year! It holds a special place for me personally. My son’s birthday and my wedding anniversary make it a month of celebration and joy. I also love Halloween, carving pumpkins and apple picking! The crisper, cooler weather inspires us to bundle up with cozy sweaters and scarfs, and there is great satisfaction in the crunching of leaves underfoot.
Aromatically, I love bringing out some warming oils, like Cinnamon Leaf, Ginger, Clove, Cardamom and Allspice. These spicy oils bring a sweet heat and depth to any blend. Whether you blend for a muscle soothing topical, or a room inspiring diffuser blend, these oils pack a wallop therapeutically. I also encourage you to take some time for self care. Enjoy a nerve tonifying herbal tea, a hot bath soak or schedule a massage! October is a gentle transition to the coming winter, and taking time to nourish yourself is vital. Happy blending!
