HAPPY FALL EVERYONE!

Fall is a major transition from Summer to Winter, and October is the month in which we can help our bodies make that transition as smooth as possible.

We are experiencing shorter days and longer nights and are moving from the intense heat to lower temperatures and more wind. Our digestive system gets stronger in the winter and our parasympathetic nervous system (rest & digest) kicks in.

  As we transition out of Summer’s intensity and into Fall’s dry, cold and mobile qualities,  there’s a few things we can do to stay stable and grounded: On colder days start incorporating more warming, nourishing dishes with plenty of good fats (ghee, olive oil, coconut oil) and establish a routine for yourself. On hotter days eat more ripe fruits and vegetable from the vine, but make sure that you’re allowing your body to yield to the seasonal changes by incorporating more warming stews, root vegetables and squashes into your diet.   Amply apply the  Vata Balancing Blend  from inner wrists to elbow and let the grounding, stabilizing qualities of Jatamansi support you throughout the day. This particular blend also helps promote deep sleep if rolled on the bottoms of the feet at bedtime.

  I find myself alternating right now between the Vata  and  Kapha balancing oils , because Vata/Fall season also brings about the first moments of wanting to hunker down and sometimes succumb to sluggishness. The qualities of Bergamot (uplifting), Tulsi (heart opening and boosts vitality) and Eucalyptus (promotes clear breathing and enhances the flow of prana), are nicely balanced with just enough Cedarwood to keep us grounded.   Enjoy those two blends and let me know how they affect YOU!
