Earlier this year — after researching the impact synthetic fragrances have on your health — I said farewell to my beloved scented candles and wall plug-ins.
Instead of shopping the Bath & Body Works sales and stocking up on yummy smells, I began diffusing essential oils to replace the scents that make our house feel like home.
This fall has been a true test to my ditch and switch powers, though, because fall scented candles have always been my favorite. Once I found oils to keep on hand that smell like fall and that I can diffuse individually or blend together, I didn’t miss the candles one bit.
I love that diffusing these homey oils makes our space smell wonderful, but I also love that I don’t have to worry about them being harmful to us, our pets, or the baby growing inside of me.
If you’re looking for essential oils that are perfect for fall, try these:
- Cinnamon Bark (my absolute favorite)
Try these blends for optimum fall smells:
- Cinnamon Bark, Clove, Orange, Nutmeg
- Cinnamon Bark, Clove, Orange, Ginger, Nutmeg
- Nutmeg, Clove, Cinnamon Bark
- Clove, Ginger, Nutmeg, Cinnamon Bark
- Orange, Cinnamon Bark, Ginger
Note: I source my oils from Young Living because of their Seed to Seal promise.
