A good healthy way to keep your home clean and comfortable with lovely pleasant aromas for the autumn and winter seasons is to use organic aromatherapy that contains organic essential oils. When the seasons change from warm to a chilled cold, it can have a variety of effects on the nervous system. One way to help keep the spirits up and the atmosphere feeling light, warm, and uplifting is to use organic aromatherapy that contains organic essential oils. Organic essential oils, like cinnamon, patchouli, sandalwood, orange, lemon, cedar, and pine create a lovely atmosphere that is enlivening, uplifting, warm, and grounding. There are a variety of ways to create a lovely atmosphere in your home with aromatherapy. You can use organic essential oils and organic earth-friendly candles that are made from soy or jojoba wax.

Please make sure to purchase the organic candles from a organic health food store or an earth-friendly store that sells only organic earth-friendly products. This way, you can be sure that the candles you purchase are completely 100% organic and earth-friendly and contain 100% organic essential oils. You can also use a distiller to disperse natural essential oils into the air and fill the entire room with lovely aromas. You can use more than one distiller to fill your entire home with lovely aromatherapy. The combination of using aromatherapy this way and keeping your home naturally bright, uplifting, and warm is a wonderful way to help you feel good and healthy during the colder seasons.

Generosity of Spirit and gift giving is an activity that should not be limited to the Holiday Season, when gift giving is turned into a mad commercial race to the stress line. Whether it's someone's Birthday or it's a Holiday, gift giving should be a sacred act done so from a place of love, care, and loving thoughtfulness, to show your loved ones how much you love and care about them. It's also a good idea to give a gift that is heartfelt and is environmentally-friendly, especially if the person receiving the gift is asthmatic and chemically sensitive. One year for my Birthday, my dear husband made an adorable hand puppet made from a paper lunch bag and made the cutest cat face. After we woke up and started our day, he surprised me and said "Happy Birthday" and meowed! He drew an adorable sweet cat face on the paper bag with whiskers and ears and when he meowed, he had his hand inside the puppet, and made the cat come to life! I was delighted and I laughed and cried. I thought it was so cute and thoughtful.

He's been making me laugh for years and this was just precious and darling! It was a very thoughtful gift and I still have the adorable cat puppet tucked away in a box of sentimental things. Another year, a dear friend called and left a message on our answering machine to wish me a Happy Birthday and played Sir Paul McCartney's "Today's Your Birthday" in the background. I laughed, applauded, and cried with delight. I was very deeply touched and she really made me happy. Give your vehicle a break, give the environment and road a break and do something different for your dear friends and loved ones. Be a creative non-conformist and make a gift that speaks from your loving caring heart.

I've had a special affinity with Mother Nature and her beautiful animals since childhood and they are truly my best friends. When I'm outdoors exploring and enjoying Mother Nature's wonders, I smile in amazement and awe. When I take walks or sit on the grass with my dear husband, butterflies, squirrels, beautiful large birds and adorable small birds move past us with such swift grace and we're delighted by their presence. The delicate Magickal beauty of a colorful butterfly captivates our attention and makes us smile. When I take a close look at the delicate details of a butterfly, I'm humbly amazed by the profound delicate details of the colors and I'm in awe admiration of its freedom.

When I quietly watch a frog and gently lovingly hold it in my hand, I watch its subtle bodily motions and listen to its gentle songs. I talk to it very softly and feel tremendous humble gentle love for it and assure it that I will protect it and keep it safe. When I sit and stand next to a beautiful tall tree with its beautiful Magickal green leaves and brown branches growing in natural synchronicity, I smile and feel tremendous gratitude that my carbon footprint is very small and I make a genuine effort to keep my life as green, healthy, and wise as possible. Mother Nature is a wonderful Magickal artist and I'm grateful that the beautiful colorful flowers, green grass, and bees are free to live their natural wild synchronistic lives with freedom. I'm grateful that my personal choices in my life and the actions that I take do not hurt or infringe upon the delicate lives of these Magickal magnificent creatures.
