Cool and crisp mornings, trees bursting with colors, and exciting holiday preparations. Ahhh, the Fall season! And Fall isn't complete without pumpkin spice EVERYTHING, right?
But did you know the pumpkin spice scent from candles and room spray can be a health disaster? It contains synthetic fragrances and toxic chemicals that can lead to health risks.
Well, the good thing is, you can still enjoy the season's favorite scent with a diffuser blend, herbal pot simmer, room spray, and more self-care offerings from Earth Essentials by Erica made with organic essential oils, herbs, and botanicals. Here are the benefits of my pumpkin spice essential oil blend and why it's a better alternative for you.
Benefits of Pumpkin Spice Essential Oil Blend
Unrefined Pumpkin Seed Oil
Pumpkin seed oil contains antioxidants, such as Vitamin E, that fight harmful free radicals to prevent illnesses and slow down aging and anti-inflammatory properties that help relieve pain, such as joint pain.
It also contains magnesium, which helps relieve anxiety and makes you calmer.
Annatto Powder Infused Golden Jojoba Oil
Fall's vibrant yellow to orange color is possible in my Fall blends without any synthetic coloring using Annatto Powder Infused Golden Jojoba Oil.
It has minerals and antioxidants which protect your skin, so there's no skin irritation or harmful chemicals to worry about, unlike those from synthetic coloring.
Cinnamon Essential Oil
Oh, that spicy, sweet smell of cinnamon that brings happy memories and a cozy feeling! Cinnamon oil has antibacterial properties, so it’s a safe, effective, and natural additive that fights off infection and is known to enhance mood.
Clove Essential Oil
The pumpkin spice diffuser blend isn't complete without Clove essential oil, which adds to the sweet aroma like that of a baked pumpkin pie.
Clove oil is known to help tension headaches, treat skin problems, and soothe irritation.
Sweet Orange Essential Oil
If you think a pumpkin spice diffuser blend can’t get any better, here’s the uplifting and worry-reducing scent of sweet orange oil!
Besides an even more pleasant flavor to the pumpkin spice scent, it is also known to relieve pain and inflammation topically.
Nutmeg Essential Oil
More than the warm and comforting aroma of nutmeg oil, it also has decongestant elements that help fight colds and flu and minimize symptoms of lung problems such as asthma.
Ginger Essential Oil
Ginger essential oils have been used medicinally to cleanse toxins from the body, clear and soothe aches, cure coughs and colds, and reduce inflammation.
Peru Balsam Essential Oil
The sweet and delicate Peru Balsam Essential Oil blends well with other essential oils and is great for reducing anxiety and stress, cleaning the lungs, and flushing toxins from the body.
Vanilla Essential Oil
Another favorite scent is Vanilla oil, which calms the mind and restores the skin, improves sleep quality, and boosts respiratory health.
Copaiba Essential Oil
Copaiba oil has a similar scent to that of black pepper - a spicy and earthy aroma that adds to the wonderful blend, and it's known to heal infections, lower blood pressure, and boost your immune system.
It can also lighten up your spirit because of its mood-boosting properties.
Negative Effects of Synthetic Pumpkin Spice Fragrance Oil
Synthetic pumpkin spice candles and room sprays may not bring holiday cheer to everyone, and here's why.
Can cause headaches, dizziness, and other negative reactions
Scented candles, air fresheners, and other synthetic scents may contain toxic chemicals that release harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
These are the chemicals that have carbon and quickly turn into vapor, which causes
● Allergic skin reactions
said the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
Contains chemicals linked to cancer
Some scents also contain benzene, formaldehyde, and phthalates, which are linked to cancer.
Causes indoor air pollution
Burning artificially scented candles also pollutes the air in the same way as automobile exhaust because they release soot into the air. And the stronger the scent is, the stronger the soot, too.
It’s not just safe for those with lung problems.
Why Choose Organic Pumpkin Spice Essential Oil
Brings natural spicy goodness, healthy, & fresh fragrance
Instead of filling your room with a chock full of synthetic fragrances from scented candles and room sprays, why not diffuse premade and organic pumpkin essential oils, herbs, and botanicals instead?
