5 Ways to Add Fall Flavor to Your Daily Routine

With autumn officially here, it's time to take in the cold weather, slip into thick sweaters, warm up for soups and stews, and venture outside to soak up the foliage.

If you can't get enough of the tastes and smells of fall and want to keep them involved throughout the day, try some creative ways to indulge your senses:

1. Spice up your morning brew

When you think of fall coffee beverages, your mind probably automatically jumps to pumpkin spice slats. There is a lot more to autumn flavors than just pumpkin, however, and they're equally delicious in your morning cup of coffee or tea.

You can either buy autumn-flavored coffee grinders, teas, and creams, or use the condiments in your pantry to make your next favorite autumn-flavored beverage. Popular autumn spices are gingerbread, vanilla, cinnamon, turmeric, maple and peppermint.

However, if you're a flavored coffee grinder, milk jug, or tea person, there are plenty of fall flavors out there, including cider, maple, caramel apple, cranberry spice, and marshmallow.

2. Fall in love with your skin care routine

The autumn season means transition; The humidity drops and the atmosphere becomes cooler. As the temperature changes, so does the way your skin reacts to the air around you.

In summer the atmosphere is more humid, which means your skin is moisturized and protected. During the fall, the dry and cold air, in addition to running the heaters, causes the skin to lose moisture, resulting in dryness, tenderness and irritation.

In return, it is important to change your skincare routine and products for the fall to keep your skin healthy, glowing, and happy year round. Some skin care improvements are:

  • Use a thick moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated
  • Avoid using exfoliators and retinoids to avoid the irritating effects
  • Add vitamin C to your regimen to boost collagen production for a lighter complexion

And of course, you can find these cold weather skincare products and more in your favorite fall fragrances. With pumpkin lip balm, ginger face masks, and antioxidant cranberry face wash, you can build a deliciously pampering skin care routine.

3. Cooking

After the hot summers, the cooler fall temperatures call for warm recipes, both savory and sweet.

From apples to pumpkins to mushrooms, there are plenty of ingredients to prepare tasty dishes using seasonal fruits and vegetables from the local markets.

From vegetarian-wrapped spaghetti noodles to green salads, cauliflower rice, roasted pumpkin and pancakes with cinnamon rolls, many of the best autumn dishes are quick and easy to prepare and suitable for everyday use. Even better, they fill your home with the typical smells of autumn.

4. Embrace aromatherapy

The fragrances of fall are natural gifts from Mother Nature that remind you to be present and embrace the transformations that are taking place everywhere. Why don't you bring these fragrances into your home?

Aromatherapy is a holistic healing treatment that uses aromatic materials such as essential oils to improve overall health of the body, mind and spirit.

Diffusing essential oils is one of the best ways to transform your home into an aromatic autumn haven.

Try mixing different essential oils together for unique fall flavor mixes like the ones listed below:

  • Pumpkin flavor Two drops of cinnamon, two drops of clove and one drop of nutmeg
  • Fresh autumn morning– Two drops of eucalyptus, three drops of cypress, one drop of cedar and one drop of wintergreen
  • Halloween- Two drops of clove, two drops of incense, one drop of orange and one drop of Spikenard
  • Warm autumn – One drop of cinnamon, two drops of ginger, one drop of clove and two drops of cardamom

5. Relax with CBD tinctures

From the endless fall activities to back-to-school to-do lists to increasing work projects, for many, fall marks the end of summer and the start of a season of stress and busyness.

In such a scenario, stress busters like CBD tinctures are a boon to avoid the pressures and enjoy the fall season instead.

CBD tinctures are made by mixing water and alcohol to extract the compounds from the cannabis plant. To ingest, just put a drop of the liquid under your tongue and enjoy the calming effect.

If you're wondering how to find the ideal CBD tincture flavor, all you have to do is mix the liquid with a flavored CBD oil. Some fun fall flavors are cinnamon, apple, vanilla, pumpkin, maple, and ginger.

Make the fall feel real

The change in seasons is a fabulous time to slow down, set intentions, and reflect. Fall is the perfect time to sit back, think, and let go. So don't let it pass you by.

Slip on your sweater, grab your favorite fall drink, breathe in the spicy aromas and enjoy every single autumn moment.
