1. Enjoy a Spine-Tingling Massage with Peppermint Essential Oil

With the frostiest weather soon descending, it’s more important than ever to look after our bodies, keep our skin feeling soft and supple and our muscles feeling soothed. To ensure that you make the most of relaxation during the season, try diluting 15 drops of cooling Peppermint essential oil in 10 ml of Young Living V-6® Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex for a massage experience that’s sure to be frightfully good!

2. Spice Up Your Shower with Cinnamon Essential Oil

If there’s a scent that SCREAMS autumn, it’s cinnamon. There’s nothing quite as luxurious and energising as a warm shower on a chilly morning, which is why we’ve come up with the perfect way to transform your bathing routine into a sweet, spicy, and seasonal occasion for Halloween. Simply mix 1 drop of Cinnamon Bark essential oil and 1 drop of Palo Santo essential oil with our Bath & Shower Gel Base to enjoy the rich, autumnal notes.
