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 these blends from Plant Therapy. They smell so, so good! I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Pumpkin Pie

If you love those pumpkin treats and drinks when the leaves start to fall, then you will LOVE the Pumpkin Pie blend . It really does smell like a pumpkin pie - it has a warm, spicy aroma that any pumpkin fan will appreciate.

Another way to use this blend? Add 4-6 drops of the blend to a piece of felt or a cotton pad and insert the pad into the pocket of a potholder. Place under your hot pans or casserole dishes to release the aromas of fall.

Spiced Orange

If pumpkin isn’t your scent of choice, then you need to try the Spiced Orange blend. It has such a yummy smell! If you love the scent of orange then you will love this one.

This would be a great blend to add to a simmering pot of orange slices and cinnamon.

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. Bonus! 

Be sure to get these blends while they are available!
