Best Fall Essential Oil Scents and How to Make Your Own Fall Essential Oil Blends


What is it about autumn that makes us want to look for specific scents and blends? Well, there are lots of things that make autumn a very special season.


First, it comes right after those long and hot summer days. After a couple of summer months, autumn starts to be really welcome.


Fall is also a transition season. It gets us used to lower and lower temperatures, in preparation for the long winter months.


At first, even a few degrees in minus can shock the body. This shock can lead to colds and even the flu, or other respiratory problems. The immune system is weak in this transition period.


After a few weeks though, our bodies get used to the cold and starts adjusting accordingly.


Luckily, this transition, from hot summer days to chillier autumn days and then winter, can be done with Aromatherapy.

How Can Aromatherapy Help You in the Autumn?

Aromatherapy is considered a form of CAM. CAM is short for complementary and alternative medicine. Yet, not all specialists agree with its use as an alternative to modern medicine.


However, in some mild cases, Aromatherapy can soothe and even prevent further complications.


This therapy through aromas uses the brain’s olfactory system. Our sense of smell is connected to the limbic system too. This means that certain scents can trigger certain memories.


Some scents can also cause the brain to create associations. These memories have the power to make us feel better in an instant. At the same time, some smells can also ruin moods.


On top of these facts, Aromatherapy relies on the use of essential oils. They are volatile substances that disperse into the air very fast. That’s why they have a smell in the first place.


These aromatic molecules make the immune system of the plant. The plant stores essential oils in special glands/chambers. It needs them to survive and thrive.


We extract these active aromatic molecules through steam distillation. One single essential oil is made up of tens or hundreds of different molecules/compounds. They continuously interact with each other and the environment.


Essential oils can have the following effects

  • Antibacterial and antiviral. They can destroy bacteria, fungi, and some viruses in the air and purify it. This helps to prevent viral infections and soothe other ailments.
  • Anti-inflammatory. Inflammation causes the body to react, which drains it from energy. Inflammation can also cause pain. By inhaling an anti-inflammatory essence, you can help your body deal with it better and decrease it.
  • Immunomodulatory. This is an effect that refers to stimulating the immune system to produce more white blood cells. More white blood cells strengthen it and help your body face potential infections.
  • Analgesic. This means that some fall essential oils can act on the pain receptors and decrease most local pains.   
  • Relaxing and anti-anxiety. There are quite a few studies that show how some essences affect the nervous system. Thus, many fall essential oil scents can induce peace and calm, and help you sleep better.



Why Diffuse Fall Essential Oil Blends?

Inhalation is the best way to get large amounts of active molecules inside your body.


They get inside the nose and then the brain, and the rest of the body in a few seconds. On average, you can inhale 50 – 75% of essential oil compounds per diffusion.


You can diffuse fall recipes to:

  • Purify and disinfect the air.
  • Add a nice scent to the living or working space.
  • Mask unpleasant odors.
  • Increase energy and focus levels.
  • Strengthen the immune system.
  • Sleep better.
  • Relax.
  • Etc.


In other words, fall diffuser blends can help with your health, mood, and beauty.


Applied to the skin, fall essential oil scents can also improve its aspect. Aromatherapy can help you make a real fall pampering program.


I’ve prepared a whole list of pampering fall essential oil blends, but that’s in the next chapter.


I left it at the end because there is always a lot to say about fall essential oils. It’s important to understand why they’re so intensely used before testing them.


After all, they’re not just simple scents. They’re also medicinal alternatives that can improve your health and mood. Plus, you have over a hundred different great scents to choose from, no matter the season.


Still, fall is an amazing season, filled with harvest scents, pies, jams, and other goodies. This means that you can keep those scents alive in your home for as long as you want.


Speaking of fall essential oil scents, those that make it to the list are quite many. You can make lots of delicious essential oil recipes with cinnamon. As well, you can go for diffuser recipes with clove buds.


Making your own autumn essential oil diffuser blend is easy, and I’ll show you how in a bit. But first, let’s see what the best fall essential oil scents that you can use for the whole season are.

How to Make Your Own Fall Essential Oil Blends

Mixing more scents at a time results in a very nice perfume blend. A fall blend is a mixture of different aromatic scents that remind you of something. It can be anything, from pumpkin and apple pies to a rainy autumn day.


You can make a blend from up to 5 aromas. This “rule” works more for good therapeutic results. Too many scents may overwhelm the immune system.


Still, this doesn’t mean you can’t make a more complex perfume. Here are some guidelines if you want to make your own Aromatherapy perfume blend.


How much oil concentration you use for a fall diffuser blend depends on the following:


  • Age.
  • Gender.
  • Medical history.
  • Allergies.
  • Other diseases.


For example, if you suffer from seizures or are prone to them, some essences may trigger them.


Because of this risk, you must first talk to a doctor about diffusing Aromatic oils. Children younger than 3 years can also have problems if they inhale certain oils.


Pregnant and breastfeeding women should keep away from Aromatherapy in the first trimester.


They contain very small molecules that can enter the placenta or the milk. For any of these conditions and other illnesses, please consult with your doctor first.


Back to the mixing part:


  • Essential oils can be added directly to the water of the diffuser.


You can mix them in a separate glass bottle, or you can add a drop of each essence into the diffuser. Fall blends, however, can be made in advance. This makes it much simpler to diffuse.


Speaking of diffusion, when it comes to the right device, you have plenty of options. The best technology at the moment is the atomizer or nebulizer. It doesn’t use water or heat.


It means that the oil molecules remain intact and once diffused, they are very potent.


The next best diffuser uses ultrasonic sounds. They break down the oil (and water) molecules and disperse them throughout the air. It’s called an ultrasonic diffuser.


This diffuser can dilute the oil particles, thus the effects will be less potent. An ultrasonic is very good for children and for use around pets. There are a few safety measures you need to take while diffusing, but you can learn about them in the links below.


You can learn more about diffusion here:


An essential oil diffuser should be kept on for 20 – 30 minutes and you can repeat the process every 2+ hours. It also must be done in a well-ventilated room.


The oils can saturate the air and cause nausea and headaches among others. They also linger on for a long time and the fresh air helps keep everything clear.


Fall Essential Oil Diffuser Blends


  • Another good way of mixing and diffusing fall essential oil blends is in a spray.


In a spray, you can use either water or alcohol. If you use water, you’ll have to mix your essential oils with some salt first.


Since water and oil don’t mix, the salt can help disperse the oil molecules into the water better. Alcohol mixes very well with volatile oil molecules and dries up very fast.


This way, you can make very nice room sprays that’ll allow you to inhale and enjoy the benefits of Aromatherapy.


Now that you know how to DIY, it’s time to get practicing. I believe it’s a very nice hobby for everyone; one that comes with visible health benefits.
