Fall is upon us! It may still be 85° in Texas, but that doesn’t mean that inside our air conditioning can’t take on the crisp scent of fall leaves! And while I wouldn’t mind burning candles all day long, our household budget doesn’t exactly support literally burning $10 a day.
Sidebar – do you guys have weird qualifiers for what it would you would do “if you were rich”? Mine would absolutely include burning as many candles as I want all day.
So if you, like me, are not “Candle Rich,” allow me to introduce your new best friend - the essential oil diffuser.
If you don’t already have one, now is the time to remedy this. Not only for the smells, but the extra moisture they put into the air is especially nice in the colder fall and winter months. We use them all year long, though. We diffuse lavender at night in all of our bedrooms for a little white noise and relaxing smell. If anyone has a cold or allergies, we’ll add a couple of drops of eucalyptus oil to help them breathe easier. It really does make a difference.
But this time of year especially I crave warm woodsy smells – cedar, cinnamon, orange, spices. I’ve rounded up 10 of my favorite essential oil blends filled with delicious fall scents. I have these “recipes” printed out and taped to the back of my cabinet door, where I store all of my essential oils and mix up the scents day to day. It’s part of my morning routine, after my coffee to walk through the house and set our home up to smell nice all day.
Here are my favorite diffusers and oils that we use at home!
Diffuser | Oil Starter Kit with most of the oils listed above| Bergamot | Balsam Fir |Cedarwood | Cinnamon Bark | Eucalyptus | Cypress | Lavender (I buy the big one because I use it all the time!) | Lemon | Rosemary | Tea Tree | Thieves (this is pricey; Frankincense is a good substitute)
