Health and Wellness Embrace


Hello, darlings! It is time to reset and get ready for the transitional shift of seasons. Whether you’re ready for autumn or still enjoying the end of the summer season, I have a few ways to help motivate you to embrace the looming season.  

Let’s face it, all of us this year have adapted to change in many ways, and some more than others. You’re better off by creating a calm, clear and inviting ambiance to start the day than not.  


Our sense of smell can certainly drive us in the right direction to boost our immunity and aid us on our wellness journey. These essential oils and remedies below are some of the absolute blends for the cooler season, focussing, and absolute self-care moments. 

Harvest Spice essential oil bottle autumn decor


Harvest Spice Gathering Blend  

First off, this Harvest spice has some of my favourite blends of spices and herbs —it was one of my favourites last year — it’s one of doTerra’s most popular essential oils right now (currently already sold out!), made with a comforting blend of cinnamon bark, eucalyptus, cedarwood, nutmeg, clove, and cassia essential oil. It will definitely evoke festive memories as well as cosy and inviting vibes in the home for the season. This is also a wonderful oil to add to a potpourri bowl for the upcoming holidays.  


Thinker™ Oil - Focus Blend 

This is a deeply supportive blend of herbs and plants to hellp your cognitive functions as well as elevate your mood to have more clarity. Anytime when you need to focus or concentrate on things throughout your day, this is conveniently favourable for that. Uplifting elements come from clementine due to the citrus oil, as it promotes a more energetic mood. 


Key ingredients include peppermint and clementine, other ingredients include fractionated coconut oil, rosemary and vetiver.  The slightly herbaceous and earthy scent has a mint-like fragrance and the rosemary and peppermint is the refreshingly lingering note.

Fennel Oil - Foeniculum vulgare 

This has a long ancient history used for medicinal purposes even in ancient Roman times. Studies have shown that fennel contains cancer-fighting properties, in addition to a surprising amount of plant compounds, including antioxidants — vitamin C, polyphenols that are anti-inflammatory agents, and limonene to combat free radicals.1  


Fennel is actually in the parsley family, the seeds themselves are the fruits of the plant, which is probably what you have heard of the most. I use fennel seeds and ground fennel mostly in cookery, but it’s also a great after-dinner tea, and I have mentioned before on the blog about how great this plant is for digestive issues and gas reduction.  

If your stomach aches or if you are bloated, fennel may work just as good as peppermint; it has also been used to suppress appetite due to the anethole.2 Its natural flavour takes on an aniseed-like taste similar to the scent and flavour of liquorice. 

I find fennel bulbs to be amazing braised and we grill it occasionally in my family, in addition to using the entire plant, fronds, umbels, etc. Zero waste is the motto in my kitchen. 


Next time you are at your local grocer, perhaps you will think about fennel in a whole new way. Use the fennel essential oil alongside DigestZen tablets or alone for extra support.

It is important to understand alternative methods and holistic healing elements are not for everyone but are natural ways of promoting health and wellness.
