Mood-Boosting Fall Favorites

If you’re searching for a new way to spark joy this season, you’re in luck: many of the activities already on your fall bucket list have been shown to have mood-boosting benefits. Read on to discover how we’d spend a day enjoying scent-inspired experiences that can lift your spirits.

9:00 am - Fabulous Fall Breakfast

It’s the most important meal of the day and some studies have even indicated that young people who enjoy a healthy breakfast experience lower levels of stress. This season, we’re reaching for a bowl of Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal, a seasonal favorite that shares the same Cinnamon note as our refined and peaceful CLEAN RESERVE Avant Garden Nude Santal & Heliotrope.

CLEAN Tip: Make it a mindful meal by putting your phone aside and concentrating on the different sensations you experience as you enjoy your meal, from the scent of the cinnamon and taste of the oats to the warmth of the bowl in your hands and the sound of your spoon touching the sides. 

11:00 am - Leaf Peeping 

Is there any better fall activity than watching crisp, orange leaves fall to the ground? With studies showing that time outdoors can help you feel more centered, we don’t think so! So let the notes of Sandalwood in CLEAN RESERVE Sel Santal inspire you to venture outdoors in search of leaves making their glorious transition from bright green to brilliant red. Your mood may just thank you for it!

2:00 pm - Check in with a Friend 

Spending time with a positive friend you trust can be a great way to lift your spirits and talk through anything on your mind. In fall, we love catching up with friends over a warm drink, preferably one featuring sweet notes like Vanilla and Praline that you’ll also find in our intimate CLEAN RESERVE Skin

5:00 pm - Indulge Your Artistic Side 

The busy, social season of summer can leave little time for creative expression but we think fall evenings are the perfect opportunity to reconnect with your artistic side. Spend an evening letting the creative pairings of our CLEAN RESERVE Avant Garden collection motivate you to paint a picture of the fall leaves you spotted earlier, crochet a scarf to wear as the weather gets colder, or even craft your own Halloween costume. 

8:00 pm - Journaling 

Journaling is a practice that not only lets you record moments you don’t want to forget but can help you make sense of your thoughts, and even foster feelings of mood-boosting gratitude. With notes of soothing Lavender and focus-enhancing Mandarin, we think CLEAN CLASSIC Pure Soap is the perfect perfume to accompany this activity.
