Dr. Corinne: Using Essential Oils in Some Fantastic Fall Recipes for Good Health Inside and Out

Dr. Corinne Weaver : Sep 27, 2019  Dr. Corinne Weaver

DIY is the way to go to become fully aware of every ingredient while attaining the cost effective and health outcomes you desire.

Last week I discussed seasonal eating and I shared some fall creations with food and crafts. Do you use the Fall as your last chance to enjoy the great outdoors? I sure do!! (Image: Courtesy; Dr. Corinne Weaver)

I love hiking and today we are headed up to a trail that leads to a waterfall. My mom loved waterfalls and since she is no longer with me, I love to experience them and reflect on good memories. I also love using smells to remind me of good memories. Growing up with severe allergies I was not able to handle a lot of artificial smells, that's why I love essential oils.

Did you know that the brain's smell center, known as the olfactory bulb, is connected to the amygdala and hippocampus. These areas of the brain are deeply connected to the memory center. So, the smell of something can immediately trigger a detailed memory or intense emotion.

When it comes to Fall, I think of Clove, Ginger, Cinnamon Bark, Citrus fruits, and Cedarwood. My mom used to make Russian Tea in the fall. In fact, last fall I made a diffuser blend called just that and I will share with you below.

Fall is often known as a time of harvest, a time to gather together with friends and family, and a time to enjoy hearty food that will keep us warm, inside and out.

Essential oils like Cinnamon, Clove, Ginger, and Cinnamon are commonly used in essential oil recipes during autumn due to their spicy, warm scents and flavors. Herbaceous oils like Oregano, Rosemary, and Basil are also a popular choice when cooking rich or hearty meals.

Many people complain that the Fall often leads to a compromised immune system as the weather/seasons change, schedules begin to fill up with the holidays, and everyone tries to "fit in" their yearly goals all at once. If you're nodding your head, you MUST try mixing one drop of Lemon, Lavender, and Peppermint oils in a glass of filtered water every morning. The Lemon supports healthy respiratory function, while Lavender (when taken internally) can reduce anxious feelings and promote a peaceful sleep and Peppermint (when ingested) can promote healthy respiratory function and clear breathing.

If you're exhausted from layering yourself with globs of lotion and moisturizer just to have it wash off in a few minutes, you're not alone! In fact, Seasonal Affective Disorder (a very real problem) is only worsened with a seemingly endless bout of dry skin. However, just because it's the norm for some does not mean you need to give up... it's time to hydrate! Hydrating is important any time of the year, and that goes for your skin, too!

When was the last time you took a bath and used body scrubs that created an environment filled with sensuality and serenity? Self-care is extremely important to your overall health and wellness, but most store bought bath and beauty products are filled with ingredients that are less than ideal for your body.

Thus, DIY is the way to go to become fully aware of every ingredient while attaining the cost effective and health outcomes you desire.

Did you know that sugar scrubs are a great way to exfoliate and soften your skin and can easily be customized using different types of sugar, salt, oil, and essential oil?

This Fall Sugar Scrub is gentle on your skin and has a delicious spicy fall aroma.


- 3⁄4 cup cane sugar

- 1⁄2 cup Fractionated Coconut Oil

- 4 drops Orange oil

Add the following to a 5ml Roller Bottle:

- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose gluten free flour

- 2 1/2 tbsp baking powder

- 3/4 cup raw sugar

- 1/2 cup olive oil

- 1/2 cup orange juice

- 1/2 cup walnuts

- 2 small apples, grated

- 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

- 1 drop Cinnamon Bark essential oil


- Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly coat your tin with olive oil.

- Juice orange in bowl and set aside.

- In a separate bowl, mix together flour, cinnamon, and baking powder. Set aside.

- Grate the apples. Set aside.

- In a different large bowl, add sugar, olive oil, and Cinnamon Bark essential oil. Mix together using a handheld or free-standing mixer.

- Add the flour mix and the orange juice to a bowl with sugar and oil alternatively and keep mixing. (It's okay if the mixture looks dry. The grated apples will provide additional moisture.)

- Add the apples and the walnuts and fold in gently with a spoon until just combined.

- Pour the mixture into a baking dish and bake for 45 minutes (or until a toothpick can be inserted and removed clean).

- Slice and enjoy! 

If you're already using oils, I hope this article gives you some more ideas on how to use them.

For those new to essential oils, there are three ways to begin using essential oils:

  1. Purchase oils at the full retail price (most expensive and not recommended).
  2. Pay a $45.00 membership fee and you can then purchase your oils at wholesale price (24% off retail) - TOTALLY AWESOME!
  3. Purchase an enrollment kit. (With the enrollment kit, YOUR MEMBERSHIP FEE IS WAIVED and your kit oils are below wholesale pricing!)

Once you decide how much of a discount you want, visit this link to purchase your oils or to become a wholesale member with Young Living.

Keep Breathing,
Dr. Corinne Weaver 


Dr. Corinne Weaver is a compassionate upper cervical chiropractor, educator, motivational speaker, mother of three, and internationally bestselling author. In 2004, she founded the Upper Cervical Wellness Center in Indian Trail, North Carolina. Over the last 13 years, she has helped thousands of clients restore their brain to-body function. When she was 10 years old, she lost her own health as the result of a bike accident that led to having asthma and allergy issues that she thought she would always have to endure. Then, after her first upper cervical adjustment at age 21, her health began to improve thanks to upper cervical care and natural herbal remedies. This enabled her to create a drug-free wellness lifestyle for herself and her family, and she also enthusiastically discovered her calling to help children heal naturally.

Dr. Weaver was named one of Charlotte Magazine's "Top Doctors" in 2016 and is now a number-one internationally bestselling author to two books: Learning How to Breathe and No More Meds. 

Upper Cervical Wellness Center is known for finding the root cause of health concerns through lifestyle changes, diagnostic testing, nutraceutical supplementation, and correction of subluxation (as opposed to just medicating the symptoms). The practice offers cutting-edge technological care at its state-of-the-art facility, including laser-aligned upper cervical X-rays, bioimpedance analysis (measures body composition), digital thermography (locates thermal abnormalities characterized by skin inflammation), and complete nutritional blood analysis, which is focused on disease prevention.
