Fall Essential Oil Diffuser Blends for a Healthy Home

Fall is hands down, my favourite season.
With the air getting crisper, the fantastic warm spicy smells and the leaves changing colours, it means that its almost time for Halloween Fall.
Halloween happens to be my favourite holiday. People think you’re weird if you embrace the awesomeness that is Halloween more than just a couple of days around October 31st. But I digress.
Here is a small selection of essential oils for fall that you can diffuse to celebrate fall, while also keeping your home or work space healthier and toxin free.

Why use essential oils?

I used to love candles.
There is something comforting about a warm and cozy flickering candle, which also smells amazing. To me, it’s calming and relaxing.
I have the Desert Mist diffuser from Young Living and LOVE the flickering light mode.

When you burn candles, they release volatile organic compounds and particulate matter in to the air. You are essentially creating indoor air pollution. Paraffin, what most candles are made of, is a petroleum waste product that must be deodorised and chemically bleached before it can be made in to wax. When paraffin wax candles burn, highly toxic compounds such as benzene and toluene, which are known carcinogens, are released. Oh, and then wicks have been found to contain lead… Even thought they are supposed to be made from cotton and paper in North America.
Then there’s the fragrance. The majority of the chemicals that make up “fragrances” are derived from petrochemicals including benzene benzene derivatives, aldehydes, phthalates — which are known to cause cancer, birth defects, nervous-system disorders and allergies. Phthalates are added to products to make scents last longer have been shown to disrupt hormone activity, reduce sperm counts, cause reproductive malformation, and have been linked to liver and breast cancer, diabetes, and obesity.

Concentrated plant extracts, essential oils are obtained through steam distillation, cold pressing or resin tapping resulting in distinctive molecular profiles giving the oils specific aromas and properties. Essential oils have been used by people for thousands of years.

Thieves Essential Oil Blend

The Clove in Thieves helps to relieve symptoms of cough or cold when inhaled or applied to feet and wrists. The powerful essential oils in this blend creates a warm, grounding aroma. The story behind this oil is that during the Black Plague, thieves would use a blend of spices and oils to be able to rob the corpses without becoming sick themselves.

Elemi Essential Oil

This is a new oil to me, and one that sounds like it needs to be part of your essential oil diffuser blend for all and winter.
Like Frankincense Essential Oil, Elemi Oil is rich in monoterpenes. It is often called “poor mans frankincense”. It can be especially helpful in wound care and for supporting respiratory health.

Mini No-Bake Energy Protein Bars

These super easy and delicious no-bake energy protein bars are always a hit at my house. These could pass for vegetarian if you you consume dairy products. I make mine with Wow Butter since I have a peanut allergy. It tastes just like the real deal. I also use super seed mix to sneak in a bit more protein and fibre.

Super Seed Mix?

I came across the super seed mix at Bulk Barn.
It is really easy to make your own as well.
Super seed mix is a combination of golden flax seed, hulled hemp seed, and chia seed. Mix it all up in a container and you’re good to go. Ratios are up to you, but even why I buy pre-made it at bulk barn, I tend to add in more hulled hemp seed.
I use it on my cereal and granola while my husband likes to add it to smoothies.

Making your own no-bake energy bars

It’s really simple:
Mix everything in a bowl, and make into bars or balls.

I prefer to use local raw honey to help boost my immune system and help it fight off local allergens.Due to the pandemic, I was a bit limited on what ingredients I could get. The one we bought was made in Quebec, but still came in a plastic container. The plan is to reuse the bottle to make squeezable paint for Teghan.

I would be considered a lacto-ovo vegetarian, as I consume some dairy and eggs — if they are baked into things. Being a picky eater so I do not consume most of the typical plant based proteins that vegetarians consume.
I buy Pure Whey by Revolution Nutrition. It is a bit more of a natural protein powder and made in Quebec (or at least I was told this when I worked at GNC Canada). I would love to find a protein that that I like that is available in bulk do avoid the plastic canisters.

The silicone mould was a recent purchase to support my cousin’s epicure venture. In the future, I think I will cut these tiny bars in half to make bite size protein energy snacks, and feel like I am eating more of them.
If you don’t have a pan or mould, simply roll a tablespoonful of the mix into a ball.

Customise your no bake energy protein bars

These no bake energy bars are so easy to customise.
Throw in some other seeds that you like.
Use peanut butter if you’re not allergic to it.
Mix in some chocolate chips.
Change up the flavour of your protein powder.

I used to make mine with chocolate chips but wanted to get the sugar and calories down a little bit. My kids never even noticed. Since I used a lot of seeds, they are crunchy.

What you would add in to your no bake protein energy bars to make them your own?
