One of my favorite things about the Fall are the warm smells: pumpkin, spice and pretty much everything nice. I have to admit that I’m an avid candle lover, but with a 4-year old in the house, it does tend to make me nervous to have one burning when she’s running around playing. In the last few years, I’ve also come to love essential oils for their therapeutic properties and also for diffusing in my home and making it smell wonderful. Not only does my house smell better, but it feels better too because of the properties of the oils. I am not a proponent of any one brand of oil, and I believe that you should do your own research when it comes to buying the oils that work for both your family and budget. You don’t need to spend a fortune to find EO’s that will work for you! Here are some of my favorite essential oil diffuser blends that are perfect for the upcoming Fall weather!
1. Pumpkin Pie
The oils in this diffuser recipe sound more like baking supplies, and that’s why it’s going to smell amazing! Cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg are the only oils you need to get your home smelling like pumpkin pie- without the hassle of baking one!
FamilyFoodGarden.com has lots of information on using essential oils. Head over and scroll all the way to the bottom of her page to see lots of recipes for diffusing all year long.
2. Mulled Cider
It only takes 3 oils to diffuse a scent that makes you feel like you wrapping yourself in a warm cup of cider! This is a great diffuser blend for chilly days, and will make your whole home feel warm and toasty. All you need is orange, cinnamon and clove- three oils that are very versatile and can be used in lots of other blends and ways.

3. Walk In The Woods
Autumn isn’t just about staying inside and drinking hot apple cider. It’s also about getting out and listening to the leaves crunch under your feet and smelling the cool air that’s been so absent in the hot summer months. Cypress, white fir and sandlewood are super refreshing oils that will make you feel cool, calm and collected. What mama doesn’t need that?

4. Apple Pie
Baked goods are one of the best things about autumn, especially warm apple pie! While this particular diffuser blend doesn’t actually have any essence of apple, it’s got all the spices that make you feel warm and fuzzy- just like a homemade apple pie.
