As Autumn brings forth its cooler temperatures and richly colored falling leaves, it’s a perfect time to enjoy diffusing and blending with warming essential oils.
By their nature, spicy essential oils like Cinammon, Clove bud and Ginger are strong and quite warming. A little goes a long way with these oils. They shouldn’t be heavily diffused into a room as they can irritate the mucous membranes. It’s best to blend stronger spice oils into more gentle oils like Sweet Orange.
Spice essential oils can be quite strong. When I create a seasonal autumn essential oil diffuser blend, I typically start with a single essential oil that I particularly enjoy and then complement it by adding spice oils in low proportion.
Citrus oils, blend well with the spice oils.

**When creating blends and topical products that you apply to your skin, remember that many of the spice oils can cause skin irritation and should be used as incredibly low dilutions, if at all.
