Its October and cold northern air is whipping through my boys’ fleeces at the bus stop. That one coughs, and this one wipes his nose on his sleeve. As the bus pulls up with foggy, finger-smudged windows, I can’t help but think of it as an incubator for winter ick.
I wave goodbye and walk home with the dog, brainstorming ways to keep my family healthy this season.
I’m greeted back home by the warm scents of cinnamon and clove. No, I’m not baking…it’s the oil diffuser loaded with my favorite fall essential oils. I can do many things to support my family’s health this season; reducing sugar intake, putting everyone to bed on time, and making sure that my boys are dressed appropriately for the weather. I have also chosen to use essential oils to support our immune and respiratory systems.
