To get your home into the spirit and aroma of fall, try diffusing our list of the Best Smelling Fall Essential Oil Blends for Home Fragrance.
Fall is my favorite time of year and there are so many amazing smells that go with it. For a while now, I have stopped using candles and have switched over to essential oils. Blending different essential oils to create a variety of home fragrances is so much fun and allows me to try a larger selection of aromas then I did with candles. During this time of year, the fall essential oil blends are the perfect choice to diffuse.
Why Use Essential Oils?
As I mentioned, I haven’t burned candles in my home for quite some time and diffuse essential oils instead. Prior to learning about and using essential oils, I made the decision to stop using candles because I was nervous using them around my children. Having my children around the open flame, smoke, and black soot that candles release made me uneasy because I was never completely sure what they were really inhaling or that they might knock it over.
Essential oils are an all-natural and safe way to fill your home with a favorable aroma. I have found them to be relaxing, helpful in calming me down, a good sleep aid, as well as helpful with pumping my energy up. What makes essential oils so great is the large variety of them; different oils offer different benefits.

What Are The Best Essential Oils?
If you are new to essential oils, it can be overwhelming. With so many brands to choose from, how do you know which is the right one? A reputable company uses a third party to test and evaluate the quality of their oils. The test that is done is called GC/MS, which stands for Gas Chromatograph Mass Spectrometry. It ensures the essential oils are within the proper guidelines and you can learn more about it here. I would recommend you conduct your own research and if a company is not having this test performed, then you should reconsider purchasing any essential oils from them. You want to ensure you are receiving the purest and safest essential oils for your family.
Currently, we use Edens Garden and are very happy with their quality and price point. Prior to Edens Garden, I was a doTerra essential oil user and was also very happy with them. For me, the most important thing is that the essential oils I use are tested properly and safe, and I found that with both companies. What made me look outside of doTerra was that I was no longer happy paying an annual fee and other markups due to it being an MLM. Since there are other quality alternatives available, I felt comfortable switching. After a lot of research, I decided on Edens Garden and am glad I did. Their high-quality, non-toxic essential oils are at an excellent price point. Plus, Edens Garden is easier for me to purchase because I receive them in 2 days, with my Prime membership, through Amazon.
How Do You Use Essential Oils?
- Diffuse – Fill a diffuser with water, add your fall essential oils, and your home will be smelling wonderfully in no time.
- Room spray – Fill a 2oz glass spray bottle with distilled water, witch hazel (or rubbing alcohol), and your favorite fall essential oils.
- Laundry – On my wool dryer balls I put a few drops of whatever essential oil I’m in the mood for (usually lavender) and toss them in with my clothes for a fresh scent.
- Yoga mat – I love using relaxing essential oil blends while practicing yoga. I either use my homemade spray on my mat or have some bottles of essential oils out in front of me to breathe in during the session.
- Cleaning – Make your own all-purpose household cleaner and you can substitute 30 drops of any of your favorite fall essential oils in the recipe.
- Smell – Bring the relaxing smell of essential oils to work. Add 2 tablespoons of coarse grain Himalayan salt to a cute glass bowl with 10 drops of your favorite essential oil blend.

How Do I Know If These Fall Essential Oil Blends Will Work For My Size Diffuser?
The number of essential oil drops you use depends on the number of milliliters your diffuser can hold. A good standard is 5 drops per 100ml. My diffusers range from 150ml to 200ml, so these recipes work great for me.
Tips for adding essential oil drops to your diffuser:
- Use the timer – If you feel the scent is too strong, set the timer on your diffuser. This will allow it to run for a shorter period of time.
- Intermittent setting – Set your diffuser to run for a couple of minutes, stop for a bit, then run again. That way it’s not continuously emitting the fragrance.
- Adjust the number of drops – Using and blending essential oils is about experimenting with what you like and don’t like. Add more or less essential oil drops based on what you prefer.
Larger Quantity Size Fall Essential Oil Blends
If you have a larger size diffuser, such 500ml or bigger, then you add these drops right to it. However, if you are like me and have a 150ml to 200ml diffuser, then blend these larger quantity essential oil recipes into a new bottle. Once combined, add 5 drops of this essential oil blend to your diffuser and start enjoying the smell.
