Fall is Here!

I love the smells of Fall and I love essential oils. Here are some essential oil recipes that will fill your home with the fragrance of Fall! They can be placed in a diffuser or mixed in a glass spray bottle to use as a room spray.


Essential Oil Blends For Fall

Safety note: All the recipes below are considered appropriate to diffuse around children that are six months or older. In general, it’s best not to diffuse essential oils around babies that are younger than six months old.


Autumn Wreath

  • 6 drops Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) or fir needle essential oil (Abies sibirica) or Douglas fir needle

  • 4 drops juniper berry essential oil (Juniperus communis)

  • 2 drops clary sage essential oil (Salvia sclarea)

Gingerbread

I’m going to be straight with you. In general I find the scent of ginger essential oil repulsive, but when blended with cinnamon and nutmeg it smells delightfully like freshly baked gingerbread cookies.

Also, because ginger and cinnamon leaf are very strong scents, I’ve kept the total amount of drops in this blend low. However, depending on your diffuser and the size of your room you may want to double it.

  • 3 drops ginger essential oil (Zingiber officinalis))

  • 1 drop cinnamon leaf essential oil (Cinnamomum verum)

  • 1 drop nutmeg essential oil (Myristica Fragrans Houtt.)

French Vanilla Latte

This blend incorporates the rich aroma of coffee beans with notes of sweet vanilla.

  • 6 drops coffee essential oil (Coffea arabica L)

  • 3 drops vanilla oleoresin

Citrus Forest

Douglas fir is one of my all-time favorite essential oils, and it pairs so well with citrus.

  • 5 drops Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) or fir needle essential oil (Abies sibirica) or Douglas fir needle

  • 5 drops sweet orange essential oil (Citrus sinensis) or 3 drops sweet orange essential oil and 2 drops lemon essential oil (Citrus x limon)

Thankful

“Gratitude doesn’t change the scenery. It merely washes clean the glass you look through so you can clearly see the colors.” ~ Richelle E. Goodrich

  • 3 drops sweet orange essential oil (Citrus sinensis)

  • 2 drops Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) or fir needle essential oil (Abies sibirica) or Douglas fir needle

  • 1 drop cinnamon leaf essential oil (Cinnamomum verum)

Crisp Mountain Air

This blend is similar to Autumn Wreath, but with a deeper woodsy scent and a hint of citrus.

  • 6 drops Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) or fir needle essential oil (Abies sibirica) or Douglas fir needle1 drop sweet orange essential oil (Citrus sinensis)

  • 1 drop vetiver essential oil (Vetiveria zizanoides)

Chai Tea

  • 3 drops cardamom essential oil (Elettaria cardamomum)

  • 1 drop cinnamon leaf essential oil (Cinnamomum verum)

  • 1 drop ginger essential oil (Zingiber officinalis))

  • 1 drop vanilla oleoresin

Mulled Cider

Tip: If you love this recipe and your kids are over five, you can create a delightful variation by replacing the ginger with star anise essential oil. It smells amazing.

  • 4 drops sweet orange essential oil (Citrus sinensis)

  • 1-2 drops cinnamon leaf essential oil (Cinnamomum verum)

  • 1 drop ginger essential oil (Zingiber officinalis))

Turning Leaves

  • 3 drops patchouli essential oil (Pogostemon Cablin)

  • 2 drops frankincense essential oil (Boswellia carteri)

  • 2 drops Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) or fir needle essential oil (Abies sibirica) or Douglas fir needle

  • 2 drop sweet orange essential oil (Citrus sinensis)

How To Make A Room Spray With These Blends

First, increase (double or triple) the recipe as needed so that you have 20-25 total drops. Add those drops to 2 tablespoons of vodka and stir, then pour into an 8 ounce glass spray bottle. Fill the rest with water and shake before using.


I hope these blends remind you of the best of past years, and inspire you to find beauty in this one. Happy fall!
