If you are a big fan of essential oils, fall is a great time to incorporate them more into your life. The following information not only provides individual oil scents that are perfect for this season but some ideas for blending them together into unique scents that are perfect for this cozy time of year.
Individual Fall Scents
The first thing you should do if you want to start using fall scents is to figure out which essential oils are going to achieve this. You have two main options: go with individual scents or choose a blend. Many of the popular essential oil companies mix blends for you, where they will smell like a forest, fall air, cinnamon, or pumpkin spice. However, if you don’t want to go in this direction, you can instead use those individual scents. Here are some that are perfect for fall:
- Sweet orange
- Tea Tree
Fall Essential Oil Blends
Another thing you might want to do is use a blend. You can mix up your own blend depending on how you want the certain essential oil product to smell, or get a pre-made blend. This is a great time to start experimenting with different combinations until you figure out what works best. When making your own blends, the stronger scents like fir and eucalyptus should be used less, and the milder scents like orange and vanilla can be used more.
Here are some different scent combinations to achieve the essential oil blends you want:
Pumpkin Spice – For a pumpkin spice blend, try combing clove oil with nutmeg and cinnamon. This is a very basic blend of scents that tend to smell just like pumpkin spice.
Fall Air – For a blend that smells like those warm fall evening walks outdoors, try fir or eucalyptus with sweet orange and your choice of spices, like either nutmeg or clove.
Autumn Spice – Another spice combination is more heavily spiced with cinnamon, plus some sweetness added to the mix. This autumn spice can have cinnamon oil, along with clove, vanilla, and sweet orange or lemon.
Play around with the different essential oils until you come up with blends you love for the fall season. Use them with all your DIY products or just add the blend to a diffuser so that it smells just like fall in your home every day.
