Autumn brings with it a noticeable shift in energy. As the tree sap recedes into the core of the trunk and the squirrels scramble to tuck away the last of their foraging collection, we too begin to find ourselves leaning towards introversion. Fall spices fill our coffee cups and sweaters make their way out of storage as the last of the summer crops get harvested.
As with the changing of every season, there are certain herbs, spices, essential oils, bath products and aromas that seemingly vibrate with the frequency of Autumn. If you’re looking for a way to connect with the spirit of Autumn and settle inward, check out these fall essentials below.
3 Fall Essentials
An herbal remedy about as old as mankind is made by steeping herbs and roots into a blend of apple cider vinegar and honey. While each herbalist has their own twist on this classic recipe, most fire ciders, also known as fire tonics, contain ACV, honey, garlic and onion. Used to promote health and wellness during the cooler months. This tonic can be taken like a shot of whiskey, blended with herbal tea, or taken in drops under the tongue.
Try making your own by steeping the garlic and onion in ACV for 1 week, then strain and add a touch of honey. Or check out Mountain Rose Herbs premade, organic fire cider blends in 3 different varieties.
