For some reason, the sights and smells along the trail brought back lots of memories and emotions from my childhood. As a family, we spent many an autumn day outdoors, in the woods or hiking up a mountain. We loved to camp in secluded spots. The smell of fresh air, pines, moss and damp leaves is nostalgic and renewing for me.
Essential oils can be used in this way, especially for those who can't return to the sights and smells of the past. I have read that triggering the olfactory sense is the quickest way to release hurtful memories and emotions, and counselors are using this to assist their clients. I have personally experienced the release of negative emotions, and the strengthening of positive emotions, while using my Young Living oils. It is an amazing discovery for me.

This summer, Young Living began preparations for a new farm in northern Canada, the Northern Lights Farm, where black spruce trees are plentiful. This tree provides an oil that is used in many of our most popular blends, such as Valor and R.C., oil blends that have been out of stock for several months due to the rapid growth in Young Living which created a black spruce shortage.
Besides being good for emotional release, essential oils also assist the body as it physically heals. Did you know that Idaho balsam fir and Idaho blue spruce essential oil blends are both beneficial to sore muscles and can benefit bone spurs when combined with R.C.? Did you know that pine essential oil, together with orange and cinnamon essential oils, make up Young Living's Christmas Spirit blend? This is one of my all time favorite blends and it truly reminds me of the fall holidays while keeping seasonal discomforts away.
So what are you waiting for? Grab your coat and find a nice hiking trail through the woods. Or open a bottle Young Living essential oil and experience refreshment and peace. Make it a good day!
