Best essential oils for the fall & winter
One of my favorite things about the holiday season is the scents. Living in Southern California doesn’t really give us that “fall feeling” when we step outside so we like to improvise and create a fall or winter feeling right inside our home. There's nothing like walking in to your home to the smell of the holidays to make you forget that it's 80 degrees outside ;) I used to want to stock up on all the fall candles but since using essential oils, I’ve learned to appreciate the natural scents filling my home instead of the harsh smells that some candles can give.
Whether it’s for the smell of it or to help keep my family healthy in the cold and flu season, essential oils are a must this time of year. I've been using essential oils for quite some time and I've tried the "other guys" but I'm a huge fan of Rocky Mountain Oils. You can read about why we chose this amazing company here. Spoiler alert: no contracts, memberships, or shipping fees ever!
Before I jump into my favorites, you need to know about the RMO Holiday Kits. They have three different kits only available during the holidays and they are deeeelish! They include yummy scents like pumpkin spice latte, eggnog latte, candy cane, and more! You can check them out here.
Here are my favorite oils to keep on hand during the fall and winter months. Not only do these smell delicious, most of them are great for fighting cold & flu season!
My number one favorite that I keep on hand year round is Immune Strength. I love the smell and have it going in our diffuser most days.
Immune Strength - strong, deep, herbal scent with spicy overtones and a hint of citrus. Contains incredibly therapeutic, and natural disinfecting and cleansing properties. Support a healthy immune system, assist in cleaning the air in the home, and strengthen feelings of calm and comfort by adding it to a diffuser or personal aroma inhaler. You can even add Immune Strength to your DIY cleaning products to help purify counters, sinks, and others surfaces in the home.
I also keep the Ava Shield Hard Surface Cleaner and Foaming Hand Soap on hand because it includes the Immune Strength Essential Oil Blend. I also LOVE the scent of the cleaning items in this set and am a huge fan of the toothpaste as well!
