Walk in the Woods Diffuser Blend

Essential Oils

After a very long and unusually hot summer it looks like we might finally be receiving some cooler weather. Can I get an Amen?!? I’ve missed doing many things I love this summer, and taking long walks in the woods is one of them. I’ve avoided it because the lack of rainfall and heat left forest plants very vulnerable, and it’s best to avoid stressing them out any more than possible. It hasn’t been easy to do because they are one of my most cherished grounding needs…definitely more than a want, they are a real need for me and it has left me out of sorts, despite alternatives I’ve tried.

We’ve had some rain now, and the temps are seasonal so I’m looking forward to getting back to my routines. But while I was lonesome for my trees I started using this diffuser blend to hold me over, and I fell in love with it!

This blend uses some very valuable oils, including Citrus Fresh which is included as part of the Premium Starter Kit.

Northern Lights Black Spruce (Picea mariana leaf oil) has become a personal favorite of mine. As much as I try to avoid hype when it comes to oils, this one definitely lives up to its reputation as being as close to a forest in a bottle that you’ll ever find. It’s woodsy, but earthy. If you’ve avoided it thinking it would smell like a pine tree, don’t. It’s a unique scent, and I love how it fills any space I diffuse it in with a sacred, grounded feeling.

Tea Tree (Melaleuca alternifolia leaf oil) is not an oil I use often. But in this blend it offers up it cleansing properties so perfectly, and harmonizes well with the Northern Lights Black Spruce.

The Cedarwood (Cedrus atlantica bark oil) gives this blend that rich cedar aroma, but also adds to the calming, restorative feel.

I was torn over whether to use Bergamot in this blend or the Citrus Fresh, but I try to make sure I use at least one oil from the Premium Starter Kit when I share these blends. While the Bergamot would be perfect as well, the Citrus Fresh gives the blend lightness, almost like you’d expect to feel when a breeze comes through while walking in the deep woods.

I’ve had this on repeat a lot here at home this summer, but I’m loving it now as well. It’s a great addition to your fall blends, so give it a try and let me know how you like it 🙂 And if you need oils or would like to learn more about them, reach out…I’m always happy to help!

“I contacted Colleen for help with my mare, Delilah, after purchasing her at auction. I did some detective work and discovered she had a past full of abuse, neglect and moved through several homes because of her behavior. She was having many issues like weight loss, ulcers and behavioral problems and I worked with my vet to try to keep treating it all. I was afraid that Delilah might be beyond help. I found Colleen through a mutual friend and she showed me how Delilah’s past and emotional health, and my own fears and doubts about it all, kept her stuck in a cycle of unwellness. With Colleen’s help I learned how to be present for Delilah in the way that she needs me most, and how to help her as she recovers. I’m happy to say that after a 6 months of hard work, my girl is on her way to a fresh start and we’re accomplishing things together that I didn’t think were possible.”
