It’s almost fall y’all! Just less than a week to go. When you think of some of the best essential oils to use in the fall, chances are holiday and/or baking scents are some of the first to come to mind.
What follows is a short list of some of these wonderful oils. Don’t be afraid to experiment with blending more than one together, to create your own custom scents. You’ll probably be surprised with what you come up with!
Nutmeg is a spice used in a lot of fall dishes. Think pumpkin pie! Nutmeg oil is a popular essential oil for fall because the scent reminds people of holiday meals. It has a spicy, woodsy scent that blends well with citrus oils.
Clove bud essential oil is a great oil to use in the home because its scent has a calming effect. We all need that from time to time! It also has a warm and spicy aroma, appropriate for the time of year. Clove oil is perfect for mixing with other woody-inspired oils, when it comes to using it for aromatherapy purposes.
Ginger is another essential oil that lends your home the aroma of delicious fall cuisine. I love the smell of ginger! Its spicy yet sweet scent is known to be stimulating and invigorating, making it the perfect oil to diffuse before guests arrive.
There are several different types of cinnamon essential oil, each with its own distinct scent. Cinnamon bark oil has a strong, sweet scent which makes your house more inviting to guests. Cinnamon leaf oil, on the other hand, is more mild and closer to the ground cinnamon you have in your spice rack. Who knew there we so many different type of cinnamon?!
Vanilla is a very versatile oil with a smooth sent that goes with just about anything. It’s probably my favorite scent. While it’s not specifically a fall scent itself, it pairs very well with other essential oils typically used in the fall.
Bergamont oil gives off a spicy scent, with hints of lime, coriander and orange peel. This is a new one for me. It’s an excellent one to use in an oil diffuser, as it helps to reduce anxiety and stress of the upcoming holiday season.
These are a few essential oils, popular for use in the fall. Honestly, this is just the tip of the iceberg. Do a bit of your own research to decide which ones are best for you. Have a very happy autumn!
