I am writing this with the rain hitting the window, I think i can definately say that summer has ended and we are in autumn. Some may think this is a sad time but autumn is a beautiful vibrant season which often gets overlooked as we get busy for Christmas. So lets revel in Autumn.
If it important to get prepare, spend as much time as possible in the daylight to stock up on vitamin D, this helps with your mood and general health.
Being outside is very beneficial for our lymphatic system too, we are more active which means that lymph is pumped around our body clearing toxins and bringing fresh lymphocytes to fight infections.
There are many ways to boost your lymphatic system
1… be active even if thats dancing, running, gardening, just moving
2… drink water. If you are hydrated, your body is more efficient. I am a fan of hot water as this is kinder to your digestive system and flushes away toxins better
3… skin brush. You can do this by hand in the morning on dry skin before your shower. Begin at your ankles and with a sweeping motion, move up to your head. This is stimulating your circulation which again helps to fight infections as it brings fresh nutritious blood to your organs and joints
4… Use aromatherapy in your home and workplace. Make it organic aromatherapy too as this is more therapeutic and grown without pesticides
Here are our suggestions:
“help me, i’m feeling under the weather” essential oil blend
Powerful antibacterial essential oils of Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, Peppermint, Lavender and Tangerine will help clear sinuses, ease headaches and help to fight autumns coughs and colds
We like to add 2-3 drops in bowls of water and place around your home and home office to create a wonderful scent
5… The best treatments for autumn are:
Hopi ear candles which help to remove wax plugs which prevent your sinuses clearing naturally. You can also have the Sinus Massage which involves the ear candles, reflexology and a lymphatic facial massage
Warm Bamboo massage warms your muscles and eases toxins which make you feel achy so you move less. See our offer for October
Holistic Facial nourishes your skin plus we use “meridian tapping” to boost your energy.
Lymphatic drainage massage (and reflexology lymph drainage) is the perfect treatment to get your immune system at its best. If you struggle with seasonal coughs and colds, this is definately one for you. See our November offer
If you struggle with SAD, there are plenty of things to do now
1… make the most of getting outside
2…make a mood board for what you want to do in 2021
3…use aromatherapy to help relax you
“help me have mindful of calm” essential oil blend uses organic essential oils of Frankincense, Geranium Bourbon and Lavender to ease feelings of anxiety, stress and being over whelmed
So lets make this Autumn as vibrant as the colours and as scented as we can.

As we change from summer to autumn, this can be a diffcult change for our immune system. Be careful to protect yourself as your immune system can take a while to adjust, by making simple changes you can ward off coughs and colds.
1..Get outside as much as possible as this improves your sense of wellbeing, the fresh air keeps your airways open and the daylight (hopeful sunshine) provides vitamin D which becomes in shorter supply during winter.
2..Use Helpmeorganics “help me, i’m feeling under the weather” essential oil blend in big bowls around your home or in diffusers. Adjust the strength of aroma to suit you but we recommend starting with 1-2 drops and increase if you need to. The organic essential oils of peppermint, teatree, eucalyptus, lavender and tangering help to fight off viruses, are anti viral and anti bacterial , they will help to keep your sinuses clear. Available in the shop, online www.helpmeorganics.com or via our etsy shop.
3..Have a regular holistic treatment, reflexology really helps to boost your immune system, gets your circulation moving, calms and soothes your nervous sysystem, helps to clear sinuses and improves your general happiness.
4..Having a massage using organic essential oils, really ensures that any muscular tension, trapped nerve or feeling of anxiety can be nipped in the bud immediately. By feeling on top form throughout autumn will mean that you can stay active, feel wonderful and enjoy this vibrant season.
