Amazing Things Only People Who Love Fall Would Understand

Amazing Things Only People Who Love Fall Would Understand

As you notice that very first exhilarating bite in the air, you lovingly wrap yourself in a wonderfully cozy quilt and sip the warmth from your steaming cup of tea. It’s fall!

Your every move feels energized. Yet, at the same time, tranquilizing thoughts of relaxing around your crackling fireplace tempt you. If you love the fall, you’ll completely understand the following sentiment:

1. You appreciate the glorious sounds.

Geese honking overhead, as they fly further south to warmer climates, where the food is still readily available. School buses whisking apprehensive children back to their classrooms. The wind, rustling the ever changing leaves, encouraging them to drop like confetti to the ground, creating a carpet. With your every step, the sounds of crunching alert you to a welcoming change. Busy festivals, children giggling as they play hide and seek in the corn fields, sounds of tractors filled with passengers with rosy cheeks enjoying their hay ride and the laughter of children carefully picking the most impressive pumpkin to carve, decorate and display proudly at their homes on Halloween.

This is fall.

2. You love the peace the season brings.

As the day’s light becomes shorter and shorter, wind swirling the leaves, it’s all so wondrous! The harvest moon. Darkness creeping over your life in the most romantic way. Feeling the desire to gather and store your necessities for the coming winter — much like our friends the squirrels.

3. You understand that the smells of fall hypnotize and entice.

The sweet perfume of burning wood, the aroma of fallen leaves, earth, rain, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, hot cocoa, simmering soups, stews, chilis, roasted chicken, tart and sweet apples, the indescribable smell of pies baking … apple, pumpkin and pecan “oh my!”

Mostly, you smell Mother Nature preparing for hibernation and survival.

4. You see breathtaking events.

The leaves change to magnificent colors — brilliant hues of red, yellow, orange and brown. They impressed you with their beauty in the spring and summer months, but now it’s time for them to disappear. It’s absolutely spellbinding and you’re aware that you are witnessing something very significant. It humbles you.

Pumpkin patches are overflowing with small, medium, large and unusually gigantic pumpkins, their colors so calming and sweet. Jack-O-Lanterns abound, creatively carved in the most surprising ways, depicting engaging personalities.

Ah, yes. It’s fall.

5. You feel excitement.

Time to bring out the fall clothes…soft, warm, nurturing, fluffy, velvety, you’ve missed them so! They greet you with a loving hug, your old friend, welcoming you back. There is no greater joy than slipping into your flannel pajamas on the first cool evening.

Fall attire has a bold personality. Colors and fabrics that step up and demand to be noticed, yet remain kind and caring, helping you through the cold and dark days that await. Halloween costumes are everywhere, tempting you to celebrate and remember the joy of your youth. You gleefully watch as children on a sugar high trick or treat door-to-door, hoping to frighten, unaware of how precious they look in their much anticipated costumes.

Don’t forget about fall footwear — it’s serious. You understand it wants to protect you, but your pillowy slippers await your arrival, murmuring softly: “Welcome home!”

6. You can even taste this season.

Savor and nibble every bit, all throughout the fall. Where shall I begin? Pumpkin everything! The overflow of comfort foods reappear after a season of bikinis…casseroles, mashed potatoes, stuffing, macaroni and cheese, biscuits and muffins. Steaming bowls of hot cereal prepare you for the frosty days ahead.

Fall, lovingly and excitedly, whispers in your ear: “Take notice and appreciate the beauty and strength of this exquisite season and have patience as Mother Nature readies you for the winter months to come.”

Isn’t it amazing?

11 Hidden Benefits of Using Oil Diffusers

11 Hidden Benefits of Using Oil Diffusers

Affordable, relaxing, and healthy, oil diffusers are gaining popularity with people everywhere due to their extensive benefits. Oil diffusers work through the simple process of oil diffusion, which uses heat to turn oil into a vapor that is then spread around a living space. Diffused oil can have several relaxation and health-related benefits, including safe scent-dispersion, mosquito and mold defense, stress relief, and more!

Read on for 11 hidden benefits of using oil diffusers.

1. Safe Scents That Make Sense

Unlike candles or air fresheners, oil diffusers release cleansing molecules into your air that work to purify it, not overload it with unhealthy chemicals. Electronic diffusers also do not pose the fire risk that candles do. Plus, they contain the added feature of interchangeability, which means you change oil types for different scents and health benefits.

2. Stress Relief

Several lab studies have confirmed that diffusing essential oils like lavender have been shown to reduce stress and help relieve anxiety in medical patients. Preliminary studies have also shown that oil diffusers can help alleviate symptoms of depression.

3. Improved Sleep

Diffused oil has relaxing properties that can help people of all ages fall asleep quicker and sleep more soundly. Electronic diffusers not only have the option to mix and match different oil blends (Try a lavender, Bulgarian rose, and Roman chamomile blend to help with insomnia), they also run at a gentle hum that helps relax an agitated mind. Many also come with an auto shut-off feature to help conserve oils once you have fallen asleep.

4. Appetite Control

Much like gum, oil diffusers can help stimulate the senses in a way that works to curb appetite. New research has shown that diffused peppermint oil can help curb appetite by inducing a satiety response within the body. Diffused peppermint oil has also been shown to increase energy.

5. Bacteria and Mold Killing

When essential oils are diffused in the air, they break down free radicals that contribute to the growth of harmful bacteria. Eucalyptus, thyme, and tea tree oils are especially good for this purpose. Diffused oil is also highly effective when it comes to combating fungal yeast threats, as the oil help makes the air inhospitable for yeasts such as mold. Pine and red thyme essential oils are best for combating mold.

6. Decongestion and Mucus Control

Ever tried Vick’s Vapo-Rub? Its decongesting powers come from active ingredients made from the eucalyptus tree. In principle, oil diffusers work the same way as Vapo-Rub, except they diffuse their decongesting vapor all around the room, not just on your chest or neck. Oil diffusers have been known to cure pneumonia in lab mice.

7. Mosquito Repellant

Nobody likes mosquitoes — but when the trade-off means using repellants full of DEET, a toxic chemical that can be especially harmful to children, mosquito control can often seem like a lose-lose. However, scientists have shown that oil diffusers can be used as a safe and highly effective mosquito repellant. Studies have shown that a diffused oil mixture containing clove essential oil and lemongrass essential oil repelled one type of Zika-carrying mosquito, the Aedes aegypti mosquito, at a rate of 100%.

8. Pain Relief

While applying oils directly to areas of your body may be the most effective way to alleviate pain, diffusing essential oils can also be an effective means of pain relief. When we inhale healthy essential oils, they enter our blood stream and can help internally relieve persistent pain from headaches, overworked muscles, and sore joints.

9. The New Anti-Viral

Research into the anti-viral effects of oil diffusion is now just gaining steam. A recent study showed that star anise essential oil was proven in medical experiments to destroy the herpes simplex virus in contained areas at a rate of 99%. Another study showed the popular DoTerra oil blend OnGuard to have highly-effective influenza-combating powers.

10. Improved Cognitive Function

Diffusing essential oils has also been shown to improve cognitive function. Many essential oils have adaptogenic qualities, which can work twofold in soothing us when we’re stressed, and giving our bodies a pick-me-up when we’re feeling down or sluggish. By working to level out an imbalanced mood, diffused oils also help us to focus. There are also several essential oils which have been shown to help balance the body’s hormones. With prolonged use, these oils can work to repair the underlying causes responsible for hindering cognitive function.

11. Money Saving

With ten clear benefits of oil diffusers already outlined, there is one more that should now be obvious: using an oil diffuser will help you to save money. As an anti-viral, bug repelling, and stress-relief solution rolled into one safe product, an oil diffuser used with the proper oils will save you money on products you might otherwise be buying to help cure those pesky headaches or get your kids to fall asleep on time. If you’re wondering just how affordable oil diffusers can be, check the buyer’s guide to the best oil diffusers — you’ll be sure to find one that fits your budget!
