Fall is in the air and it’s time for pumpkin spice latte’s and Thanksgiving dinners. It’s also time to start firing up the diffuser a little more now that cold and flu season is upon us.
But, if you’re feeling healthy, maybe you just want a nice warm comforting scent in your home. Fall scents are perfect for that, warm and comforting they often include spices and citrus.
These 4 diffuser blends are just the ticket for infusing your room with the scents of fall.
Amyris is a lesser known essential oil that has a lovely balsamic vanilla woody scent. It is also a wonderful fixative, so it pairs nicely with citrus notes, which tend to dissipate quickly. Amyris is a little thicker, so this oil may not be suitable in all diffusers (especially nebulizers).
If you like the scent of amyris, you should also check out this diffuser blend at Mountain Rose Herbs blog, where they pair it with Elemi and Tangerine.
Of course, fall is when pumpkins ripen and get turned into Thanksgiving pies. This diffuser blend is inspired by Martha Stewart’s pumpkin pie spice blend. There is no pumpkin essential oil, so we’ll have to make do with just the spices, but I think you’ll agree this one is invigorating and warm.
Pairing spices with citrus always goes over well in my household and this one reminds me of a simpler version of my beloved Pirates blend from the Essential Oil Company. Besides smelling great, it also doubles as an anti-infectious blend due to the presence of clove and cinnamon.
One of the great things about fall is taking a walk on a cool (but not too cold) day through the woods. The rain has made everything wet and the fallen leaves lend a subtle aroma to the air. It is really hard to re-create that scent, but this one is inspired by the trees, mixing the cedar, fir, and pine of the forests and adding a hint of peppery citrus with the petitgrain.
