When I stepped out of the house today to drop my son off at school, I could smell Fall in the air. Having grown up in India and having spent most of my adult life in San Francisco, I never experienced the different seasons till we moved to New England. I have learned to appreciate the four seasons here, with each feeling like the beginning of a new chapter.
Fall, to me represents an internal slowing down amidst the business of life. Most people get very busy in the Fall with school, work etc. It is also a time for reflection, not like the deep reflection that happens in Winter, but the kind where you start to look at your goals, what you want to do your life. At least that is what I am currently doing.
Personally, I love Fall. It is so beautiful, it is cool after the hot summer. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE summer, but there is something magical about Fall. I am excited to share this Fall with my son. Last year he was too young. I can’t wait to show him the leaves as they turn color. There is so much happening and yet there is the beginnings of stillness simultaneously as we approach winter.
It has all the flavors that symbolize Fall for me. Cinnamon Bark is one of those yummy smelling oils & it is so good for you. It supports the circulatory system, boosts immunity, muscular skeletal system, oral health and much more.
Everyone knows about Clove. Clove EO is a wonderful support of oral health, builds immunity and has a high antioxidant component to it. Love the smell of Clove.
Ginger and Indian probably go hand in hand. Ginger EO is often used for soothing, comforting and balancing the digestive system.
If you do happen to try this recipe before I do, please do tell me about your experience….Happy Fall where ever you are.
