Fall is in the air. Can you smell it yet? Having recently moved to Texas, I’ve been relishing in seeing friends’ social media posts talking about crisp fall air and sweater weather… while we are still arguably sitting in summer weather, craving a break from the 90+ temperatures. All the more reason to indulge in filling our home with some lovely fall aromas. ‘Tis the season, right? Here are our 14 favorite fall essential oil recipes you won’t want to miss!
Why essential oils? Because most candles are filled with all sorts of yuck you won’t want to expose your family to on a regular basis. Power outages are one thing… every day use is totally different. Thankfully, essential oils provide literally endless options for all your fall favorite blends.
Before you buy another candle…
While it isn’t yet commonly known, it is no secret that candles can cause some serious health issues because of the toxic chemicals used to create them.
If you haven’t looked through how candles can be toxic to your and your family’s health, please head over to my Before You Buy Another Candle… Are Candles Safe? post!
The secret is out! Most candles contain chemicals that are harmful to our health. People with respiratory sensitivities know all too well the havoc they can wreak on our lungs… but its more than just breathing irritation. Yes, flameless candles are nice to look at, but they don’t fill the room with wonderful aromas (and the ones that do are filled with toxic fragrance chemicals). And there are expensive beeswax alternatives… but those often have toxic fragrance chemicals added too.
Ditching candles and their toxic ingredients doesn’t mean you have to miss out on all those awesome fall scents!
Instead of reaching for that lighter and candle, all you need to do is “fire up” that essential oil diffuser!
Finding diffuser blends to make with your essential oils fit for fall, and for indulging the cravings of those fall scented special candles, doesn’t have to be difficult. If you’re feeling up to some DIY, the possibilities for recreating some iconic fall scents are endless!
Here are some of our FAVORITE DIY fall diffuser essential oil blends:
I wish I could share with you which one is my favorite in this list… but honestly… I couldn’t choose if I had to.
A great-smelling space doesn’t always require DIY!
I get it… as a busy mom with a lot going on… often DIY looks like fun, but requires too much brain power. Its much easier to have a blend already made, especially during those drowsy cross-eyed moments following a sleepless night. My favorite pre-made essential oil blends for fall are these from Young Living:
- Light The Fire
- Thieves (especially with a drop or two of Orange – reminds me of Pumpkin Pie)
- Christmas Spirit
