Holiday Wassail

Is there anything NOT wonderful about Autumn? Okay, besides the fact that here in Illinois the Japanese Beetles decide that our house seems like a delightful place to live. Or the fact that snow is just around the corner. Besides all that.

One of my favorite things about Autumn is all the baking! Those who know me well know that being in the kitchen isn’t something I usually love, but Autumn is the exception. I bake pies and tarts and custards and loaves of bread. I whip up cranberry sauces and hot beverages! I love the smell, taste, and look of food in Autumn. “So, why not,” I asked myself, “make something Autumnly delicious (yes, I made that word up) with essential oils?” So I did. It’s a recipe I actually discovered directly from Young Living. Mhmmmm!

Whip it up, heat it up, pour it out, and watch the world become  a little brighter and  happier with each sip.

Add all ingredients to a 3-quart pot. Turn stove to medium/high and heat until hot. Serve and enjoy!
{For added benefit, set the post to simmer to keep your home smelling festive throughout the day. You may need to add 1-2 drops of additional oils if the mixture stays on the burner for many hours—as you are essentially diffusing these ingredients into the air.}

It’s absolutely delicious! My younger siblings begged for more and more. I will definitely be making this recipe all winter! 🙂
