Don’t you just love autumn?
The crisp air, the beautiful changing leaves, all those pumpkin spice flavored drinks.
Now you can have that scent in your home too, with one of these 7 fall essential oil diffuser blends.
And, if you’re not sure how to create a blend for your diffuser. I’ll show you one simple method that will have you designing your own combinations in no time!
Fall is my favorite seasons but I don’t like how my home starts to smell stuffy.
You know how it is…it starts getting chilly and it’s time to keep the windows closed. But 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
Alter molecules that create odors

Favorite Fall Essential Oil Blends
Now that I’ve convinced you to start running your diffuser, give some of these fall essential oil blends a try!
1. English Pomander
Have you ever made a pomander? Basically, it’s a clove-studded orange. Isn’t that combination just lovely!?
This one reminds me of the changing seasons and the coming arrival of Christmas.
2. Evening Stroll
This combination is reminiscent of a walk through the woods in the fall.
If you can’t get outside to enjoy the cool, crisp air, bring the scent home with you.
3. Mulled Cider
This combination is like having seasonal goodness in your diffuser!
It smells like the quintessential seasonal drink and it’s antibacterial properties will clear the air at the same time.
4. Autumn Air
Have you ever noticed how the air begins to smell differently when fall sneaks in?
This diffuser blend will remind you of that scent all year long.

Fall Essential Oil Sets (from Plant Therapy)
If you prefer a custom fall blend where you don’t have to figure out which oils to use, check out these fall essential oil sets from Plant Therapy.
They smell so, so good and the best part is that your custom blend is already ready for diffusing!
5. Fall Rain
If you love those crisp 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.
6. Vanilla Synergy
If pumpkin isn’t your scent of choice, then you need to try the Vanilla Synergy blend. It has such a yummy, sweet 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, as 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.
7. 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.
Be sure to get these blends while they are available!
How to create Your Own Fall 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?
The scents that remind me of fall include:
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.
It depends on the size of your diffuser but this amount is a good, general estimate for most average-sized diffusers.
Bonus: 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).
