Fall Essential Oil Diffuser Blends

Fall is one of my favorite seasons but I don’t like how my home starts to smell stuffy. You know - when it’s getting chilly and it’s time to keep the windows closed your home can start to smell a little stale.

That’s one of the many reasons I love diffusing essential oils. 

My home can smell fresh and clean and I know that I’m giving my family a healthy boost (because diffusing is a good thing!).

Why do you want to diffuse essential oils?

Here are just a few things diffusing can do:

  • Improve concentration & mental clarity

  • Eliminate airborne germs & bacteria

  • Relieve tension

  • Alter molecules that create odors

A Simple Method for Creating Your Own Fall Essential Oil Blends

If you’re feeling adventurous, then it’s definitely time to start creating your own signature blends for the season. But how do you start?

First, think of the scent of each oil. The scents that remind me of fall include:

Citrus - Orange, Bergamot
Woodsy - Fir, Sandalwood, Cedarwood, Juniper
Spicy - Cinnamon, Clove, Ginger, Nutmeg

Then, combine one from each category. I like to keep it to about three oils and a maximum of 8-10 drops is usually sufficient for diffusing (depending on the size of your diffuser - but that’s a good, general estimate for most average-sized diffusers). 

Bonus tip! Don’t start adding those oils to your diffuser until you do a quick sniff test. If an oil smells strong (the spicy essential oil family) - use fewer drops -- one is often enough (and more drops of the lighter scented oils). Strong oils like Clove or Cinnamon will quickly overpower other scents so use a light hand.

It’s all about experimenting and finding what your family loves -- but keep your experimenting safe (and that means limiting spicy, hot oils).

If you prefer something quick and easy (without having to figure out which oils to use) - you NEED this fall essential oil set from Plant Therapy. They smell so, so good! I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Fall Rain

If you love those crips fall walks, then you will LOVE the Fall Rain blend . It really does remind me of an evening walk on a fall day with the woodsy aroma of Douglas Fir and Juniper.

Another great way to use this blend? Add 10-15 drops to an aromatherapy inhaler and inhale as needed to ease congestion and calm the body.

Maple Leaf

If pumpkin isn’t your scent of choice, then you need to try the Maple Leaf blend. It has such a yummy smell! If you love the scent of vanilla then you will love this one. It almost reminds me of a vanilla chai latte.

This would be a great blend to add to a cotton pad inserted into a hot pad - it will release it’s aroma as the hot dish is placed on the pad. Or, add a few drops to your favorite unscented lotion before applying to the skin.

Harvest Moon 

Harvest Moon reminds me of freshly fallen autumn leaves crunching beneath my feet on a crisp fall day. The blend of Bergamot, Cedarwood, Fir Needle, Juniper Berry, and Cardamom really does provide a woodsy, crisp blend with a hint of sweetness.

Even better, this blend is a great option to ease congestion if you happen to catch a cold or add to your favorite carrier and apply to sore or overtaxed muscles. Bonus! 

Be sure to get these blends while they are available!
