My Go To Fall Essential Oil Blend!

Guys! It’s officially fall and I couldn’t be more excited. The only thing that would make it better is Florida giving me just a little cold front. I’m talking 65 degrees. That’s it. That’s all I’m asking for! Anyways, Im ALL about the pumpkin scented soy candles from Target. I mean, I kinda already burned though one whole one this past September. However, being the natural gal I am, I love using essential oils not only for the beautiful aroma, but also the incredible health benefits that go with it!


This blend is perfect for diffusing in the evening time when you’ve had a really long day and just want to relax and unwind a bit. It’s also great to diffuse throughout the night for a restful sleep.

3 Drops Wild Orange

1 On Guard

2 Cedarwood

1 Frankincense

These POWERFUL oils carry so many benefits with them.

Wild Orange is my favorite smelling oil ever. It’s so invigorating and energizing when you use it on it’s own, however when you add it to this blend it gives it the perfect balanced scent.

On Guard is full of many great oils including Wild Orange Peel, Clove Bud, Cinnamon Leaf, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary Leaf/Flower essential oils. This blend kills up to 99.9% of bacteria and germs, supports the body’s natural antioxidant defenses, a healthy circulation in the body, and has such an uplifting aroma. This is the perfect oil to put on the bottom of your feet when you feel yourself under the weather.

Cedarwood is one of my new favorites for a few reasons. I first started mixing this with lavender and wild orange for a nice, subtle, day perfume. I recently discovered it’s wonderful for getting rid of bad dreams when diffused at night or put on the bottom of your feet. It’s also amazing for creating a relaxing space.

Frankincense is the gold mine of essential oils if I do say so myself! From using it as a nice cleansing facial acne wash to diffusing or rubbing on your feet for a good night sleep and a more balanced mood. It has so many uses to it, which makes it one of the more expensive oils.

All of these together have been my recent go-to blend for creating a restful, peaceful, space. Especially, when sleeping throughout the night and I’m so excited to share it with all of you to use and enjoy yourself. I hope you feel a little bit inspired to find your own essential oil blend for this fall season. If you find one you love, comment it so I can check it out myself. Have a wonderful, cozy, and most importantly delicious fall season everyone!

My Favorite Ways To Meditate - 3 Different Ways

Well, hello Saturday and hello beautiful readers! Today I am coming to you with some of my favorite ways to dive deep into meditation. I recently have been combining my meditation practice with my time with God and it is amazing. Who better to give you that peace and mindfulness you need rather than God himself! So excited to be entering my first blog post on my brand new and updated website for all of you to read! Lets get started. :) 

1. Meditate On Scripture (Literally)

One of my new ways of meditating is to literally find a passage you want to read whether that's something random you chose or digging through The Bible to find the right one for you in that moment. (PS. I am including a photo of one of my favorite "emergency Bible verse" photos I find on Pinterest, because they are SO beyond handy). Once I find the passage or verse I want to read I go through and find a key word or phrase that sticks out to me in that moment!

For example: 

Psalms 94:19 says "When my anxieties multiply, your comforting calms me down." 

What an AWESOME verse to meditate on. To close your eyes, play some nice instrumental yoga music, and repeat that to yourself a few times. To really imprint that into your mind! *Don't forget to breathe deeply and slowly. Meditation is all about connecting the breathe to the body and calming the mind down. So try not to think about anything else, besides that word of phrase you chose to concentrate on!*

2. The "Abide" App

THIS right here is my new discovery in the App store on my iPhone! It's literally a Christian meditation app that uses God and His word to help you meditate. It gives numerous different meditations that use verses and a guiding voice as well as music and peaceful sounds to guide you in your meditations! Such a great find and the meditations are FREE.  

3. Acts of Worship

Now, people sometimes get confused when they think about "worship". I used to think when I was younger that worship was singing songs to God and that's it! It wasn't until I was much older that I realized worship can be shown through everyday acts of life. Whether that's working efficiency at your day job, being kind to the people you come across, or exersicing and eating healthy because God wants us to honor the body we were given. All of these are acts of worship and we are given chances EVERYDAY to either use them as acts of worship to God or to do them sloppily and not with a purpose.  

HOWEVER! Worshiping with the mindset of meditation I think is such a great way to think about it. Centering your mind around being in the presence of God when you're performing these peaceful tasks is so rewarding. It can be through singing those worship songs or praising Him through your peaceful yoga flows, going for runs to clear your mind, or laying still on your bed for a few moments. All of these can be acts of worship when you place yourself at the feet of Jesus and really center your mind on the presence of God. 

Thank you so much for reading along for today! I am so beyond happy to be sharing more on my site and to really connect with all of you reading. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
