Fall Essential Oil Recipes
We have compiled a collection of favorite fall essential oil recipes that can help you enjoy the season in full Fall fashion. Although I really enjoy the summer months, Fall holds a special place in my heart as well. The transition from summer to fall is beautiful in the great state of Pennsylvania! There is just something about the leaves changing color, the crisp air, and seemingly everything becomes pumpkin spice!
For most of us, fall is full of events such as back to school, birthdays, football tailgates, "Turkey Day", and so much more! This time of year is especially difficult to maintain a healthy well-balanced diet and activity plan! We can still enjoy the flavors of fall simply by using our essential oils. For those attending parties, it is always a good idea to show up with a special dish for all to enjoy. I always enjoy finding great recipes that allow me to add a few Vitality Essential Oils to the mix.
What are Vitality Essential Oils you ask? These are essential oils that Young Living has created and labeled for the use of dietary supplements, so these are essential oils that if desired can be ingested. Please use safety and consult with your physician if you have any concerns. Be smart folks, do NOT just go out and start drinking straight from your essential oil bottles. These oils are potent!
For ease of identification Young Living has created the white labels specially for the Vitality Essential Oils lineup.
The following recipes would be a wonderful addition to the appetizer or dessert table for your Halloween, football, or Thanksgiving gatherings! Let's get to know these top five essential oils that you will see in the recipes below and why to use them!
1. Cinnamon Bark Vitality- Using Cinnamon Bark Vitality oil brings a warm taste and sensation to your favorite dishes. Taking Cinnamon Bark Vitality essential oil as a dietary supplement can support healthy digestion and help maintain a healthy immune system.*
2. Clove Vitality - Clove (Syzygium aromaticum) Vitality™ essential oil is the concentrated distillation of the same distinct, spicy cloves that have been used in kitchens for thousands of years. Perfect for adding flavor to both sweet and savory dishes, Clove Vitality oil includes the naturally occurring constituent eugenol and is beloved for its use as a dietary supplement. When taken as a supplement, Clove Vitality essential oil promotes a healthy immune response* and may support overall wellness*
3. Ginger Vitality - May calm occasional nausea*. Ginger (Zingiber officinale) Vitality™ essential oil is distilled from the root of the ginger plant and lends itself to a wide variety of applications. Used as both a flavoring in the kitchen and as a dietary supplement, Ginger Vitality oil is a distinct and versatile oil that’s great to keep on hand.
4.Nutmeg Vitality- Take it as a dietary supplement to experience its cleansing properties and to support a healthy lifestyle.* Steam distilled from the fruit and seeds of the tree, Nutmeg Vitality™ essential oil has a sweet and distinctly spicy taste, making it both a powerful and versatile essential oil. Nutmeg Vitality™ is particularly good for enhancing the flavor of winter produce such as acorn squash, sweet potatoes, and pumpkin. Nutmeg Vitality oil is also proposed to provide cognitive function support, immune support, and powerful antioxidants.* Please consult with your doc on this!
5.Thieves Vitality - Thieves Vitality combines Lemon, Clove, Eucalyptus Radiata, Cinnamon Bark, and Rosemary essential oils. These ingredients synergistically combine to offer one of the key benefits of Thieves Vitality oil: overall wellness and support of a healthy immune system. Additionally, Eucalyptus Radiata Vitality may also help support a healthy respiratory system when taken internally*.
It is always smart to consult with your physician if you have any concerns about ingesting these essential oils. Please be smart and consult your references when using any of these essential oils. They are very potent and should not be taken without thoughtfulness and education in their composition.
