Best Fall Essential Oil Blends

Here are several fall essential oil blends that are perfect for diffusing, for soap, or for perfume or body spray.  You can easily create your own blends to make your home smell warm and inviting this season.

It's finally fall, y'all.  Fall used to be my favorite time of the year.  I loved the falling leaves, the crisp air, pumpkins, and apples.

Now that I'm an adult, fall reminds me that the S-word is coming soon, and I'll be spending all of my money on heating bills.  Adulting sucks sometimes.

In an effort to get myself into the fall spirit, I've been using a lot of the best fall essential oil blends in my home.  I prefer to use natural essential oils over fragrance oils, so I create or buy my own autumn essential oil blends..

I've already made quite a few projects with Pumpkin Pie Spice and Apple Pie Spice blends. These fall essential oil blends can also be used in those projects; simply use the same amount of essential oils.

Just watch for sensitivity with cinnamon or cassia in recipes for your skin.  Some people get irritated by them.  Also watch using citrus essential oils if you'll be spending time outside because they can increase photosensitivity.

Best Fall Essential Oil Blends

When I want to make fall diffuser blends, I make them in empty essential oil bottles. I like the 5 ml amber bottles because I don’t make a big batch of seasonal diffuser blends for fall, and I don’t want to have leftovers for the following year.

How much of the diffuser blends for fall I make depends on how I'm using the blend.  If I'm just diffusing it, I'll usually just double the batch. However, if I'm making another DIY beauty recipe, then I'll make it several times over so I have enough to use.

If you're using these blends in an essential oil diffuser, you'll want to add between 4 and 6 drops, so some of these fall essential oil blends you can mix right in your diffuser.

What Oils Smell Good Together?

Did you know that there’s actually a science to creating an essential oil blend?  Each essential oil has its own blending factor.  

A blending factor is a scale from 1 to 10.  The lower the blending factor, the stronger the smell.  Therefore, you will use less of that oil in your autumn essential oil blends.
