Favorite fall essential oil recipes for your diffuser


fall essential oil blends for diffuser

I have to admit the older I get, the more I like fall.  Maybe it’s because I’m getting older?  I have to admit that age has a tendency to urge you to slow down and  focus on what’s really important.  In Chinese medicine, Autumn marks the beginning of a cycle of personal turning within.  When our time is more directed toward our work, our families, and projects at home- to slow down and prepare ourselves for winter.  This is the perfect time to fill the air with warming scents that remind us of the season.

Here are some of my favorite fall essential oil blend recipes to for your diffuser, or you can use them in a wax melting pot.

Essential Oils for Fall– Warming/Spicy/Woody Essential Oils

  • Allspice
  • Bergamot
  • Cedarwood
  • Cinnamon
  • Clove
  • Frankincense
  • Ginger
  • Myrrh
  • Nutmeg
  • Patchouli
  • Rosemary
  • Rosewood
  • Sandalwood
  • Spruce
  • Vanilla


It’s important to remember that spicy essential oils can be pretty strong- a little goes a long way!  When creating a fall warming blend, it’s a good idea to start with a single oil you really enjoy and then add to it with complimentary oils in lower proportions.  Citrus oils, especially Sweet Orange, blend well with the spice oils.  Other citrus oils that are good compliments are Mandarin, Tangerine, Lemon, Lime, and Grapefruit.  Happy blending!!
