Autumn Abundance: 10 Ways to Embrace Fall

Friday, October 7, 2016

Autumn is here! The air is turning crisp, the leaves are changing colors, abundance is beginning to appear all around us. Fall is full of lively activities to keep you busy; it is one of the best times of the year to get out and soak up the spirit of the season! From pumpkin patches to home-made baking, the possibilities this fall are endless. Here are ten of our favorite ways to feel festive as we transition into the season:

  1. Pumpkin Picking! There’s nothing quite like picking out pumpkins to get you in that Fall spirit! Choose to visit a local pumpkin patch and feel the joy in supporting local farmers, all while creating festive memories that will last a lifetime! Plan on spending a chilly Autumn afternoon perusing pumpkins with your friendly bunch. More often than not, pumpkin patches have other fun activities like corn mazes, petting zoos, and even tractor rides!
  2. Tea Time! During the chilly Fall season, it doesn’t get better than curling up with a mug of ORGANIC INDIA Tulsi Tea. Not only is Tulsi an adaptogenic herb that helps you relax, it has properties to revitalize your energy and lift your mood. Get a taste of the Autumn season by brewing up some ORGANIC INDIA Tulsi Ginger, Turmeric-Ginger, or Masala Chai. These fall flavors will have you feeling cozy from the inside out and best of all; your taste buds will thank you!
  3. Bake up a Storm! What is it about fall that inspires us to dust off the baking sheets and make delicious goodies? Perhaps the crisp breeze or fragrant smells sailing through the air! Keep things healthy this season by adding some warming spices (try ORGANIC INDIA’s bulk Turmeric) and Whole Husk Psyllium to your recipes. We have plenty of tasty recipes on our website designed to inspire your inner baker!
  4. Take a Hike! Take advantage of the fall foliage by going for a hike! Not only will the amazing array of colors dazzle your eyes, but getting out and exercising will help boost your energy levels and improve your mood. Bring along a bag to forage for fall finds like fallen pine cones and pretty leaves.
  5. Get Spooked at a Haunted House! While they may not be for the faint of heart, haunted houses can be a lot of fun! Hop online to see if one of these spooky attractions is in your area. If haunted houses aren’t your cup of tea, curl up on the couch with a scary movie and a bowl of popcorn. Boo!
  6. Put some Fall Flair in your Home! Gather up the folks in your household and deck the halls with festive fall décor! Most local grocery stores sell fabulous fall items like winter squash, corn husks, and even bales of hay. If you’re feeling crafty, you can even make DIY decorations with your foraged fall hike finds. Check out Pinterest for some extra spooky inspiration.
  7. Air it out! Take a deep breath, open up a window, and let that Autumn air in! Fall is a fabulous time to get the stale smell of Summer out of your house and let in the aroma of the chilly season. That crisp air will lift your spirits and freshen your home. Try a smudge stick with sage or Palo Santos to bring new energy into your home this season!
  8. Get crafty! One of the best parts of Fall is busting out those wooly sweaters, comfy jeans, and seasonal scarfs. How cool would it be to sport a scarf that you made with your own two hands?! Knitting is a cost-effective and fun way to relax while watching TV or listening to music. Not sure how to do it? There are many knitting tutorials online that will have you stitching in no time!
  9. Ladle up some Soup! One of the most delicious and easiest things to make for fall is soup. Play around with seasonal ingredients like pumpkins, squash, and sweet corn. Add some spice to your bowl with ORGANIC INDIA Ginger Powder. Not only will it tantalize your taste buds, it will give your soup an added boost of warming and digestive health benefits.
  10. Get Crazy with Canning! Apples, pears, and plums…oh my! If you haven’t already, give canning a try! Fall is a great time to stock up on local produce for use in recipes throughout the year. By canning your harvest, you can enjoy the flavors of fall in the form of apple butter, pear jam, and even plum jelly! Look online for some canning recipes that feed your fancy.
