Essential Oils – Page 2

(Fairly) Healthy Apple Crisp

Even when its still warm in October here, we want to have the sights and smells of fall. Hence an Apple Crisp. It’s a staple for fall desserts and it’s an easy to dessert to create in a more healthy way. Here is my version:

Apple Crisp Recipe

Filling
4 cups chopped apples (can be peeled but I left the peels on for mine)
3 drops Young Living Citrus Fresh Vitality Essential Oil Blend

Stir the Essential Oil Blend into the apples. It will keep them from browning too. Pour apple mixture into a baking dish. Butter the dish if you would like to but its not necessary.

Topping
1 cup Young Living Einkorn Granola
1/2 cup Almond Meal
1/2 cup Oats
1/2 cup Coconut Sugar
1/3 Coconut Oil
4 Drops Cinnamon Bark Vitality Essential Oil

Mix all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Add the Essential Oil and blend well. Pour the mixture over the top of the apples. Bake at 375 for 30 minutes. Enjoy!

DIY Vapor Rub

This is such an easy recipe! And a great way to get the benefits of this respiratory system support without all the chemicals. Most store bought vapor rubs have harsh chemicals such as camphor, petrolatum, and turpentine (yes, you read that right!). Stick with the all-natural version and you can feel good about putting this on your kids. We will be keeping this on hand for cold and flu season.

 

And it Will Smell Like Fall Too

Even though I have lived in South Texas for a very long time, every year I long for the feeling of fall we had growing up in Kansas. We don’t have much of a fall here and it doesn’t happen until about late October so I have to manufacture it!

My son is really too old for playdough but I thought I would give it a try anyway. The idea of playing with squishy playdough that smells like apples and cinnamon was just too big of a draw for me. It seemed like a bit of a stress reliever too. A great addition would be Essential Oils. Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil smells amazing and supports immunity. Save this recipe for Christmastime and sub out the Cinnamon Bark for Peppermint Essential Oil. What a great gift for kiddos too!
