Fall is known for many things – apples, pumpkins, colorful leaves, football games, and fall festivals. Cool nights wearing blue jeans, the oh-so-typical flannel shirt, and cozied up in scarves sounds just perfect to me. Give me a fireside with smores and roasted hot dogs laughing with friends.
Now take all those amazing things and turn them in the aromas of fall. Essential oils come in many different fragrances – cinnamon, clove, orange, and bergamot. Fall scents specifically rely on spiced and conifer scents to get the warm aromas you want in the autumn time.
Cinnamon is used in many home baking recipes from the fall like apple cider, pumpkin pie, and apple dumplings. Clove is also used in many of the same recipes with a stronger spiced scent. Cedarwood is a comforting evergreen, woodsy aroma. In terms of top notes, citrus pairs well with these fall fragrances. Orange and bergamot add a tangy, citrus aroma.
These essential oil blends can be used all over the home in diffusers, room sprays, gel air fresheners, topical massages, and more. Don’t think you need to use these exact recipes either! Mix and match to find what works the best for you. What is your favorite way to use essential oils in the fall?
