The cooler temperatures of Fall, the crisp morning air and the changing colors of the leaves, invite us to diffuse a blend of soothing, and warming essential oils. Make yourself cozy at home or in your office by creating a blend of the recommended oils below, or just choose your favorite one and add about 10 drops to your aromatherapy diffuser. Take some deep, calm breaths and enjoy.

7. Vetiver (Vetiveria zizanoides)
This woody, and earthy oil supports deep relaxation. Vetiver is very calming, soothing, encouraging, as well as grounding, and helps to release worries, stress, tension or inner disquiet.
