Fall scented candles, air fresheners and room sprays certainly bring the nostalgic smell of fall, but unfortunately, they are loaded with artificial fragrance. The Children’s Environmental Health Network says, “Many synthetic chemicals in fragrances are petroleum-based and can be harmful to human health. Chemicals found in fragrances include phthalates, which are endocrine disruptors, and carcinogens benzophenone and styrene. In addition, some children and adults have allergic reactions to fragrance chemicals.” Yikes! Read more about the harmful affects of ‘fragrance’ here.

Diffusing essential oils is one of my favorite things to do so I can still enjoy all of the favorite fall scents without exposing my family to toxic chemicals. In fact, many of the traditional fall smells and spices actually benefit your health by boosting your immune system! This is certainly beneficial as we go into the winter months and flu season begins to ramp up. These fall diffuser recipes incorporate all of the best fall essential oils that will leave you dreaming of apple pie and pumpkin spice lattes. Just a few drops of essential oil will make your home smell amazing with zero synthetic fragrances.

There are so many essential oils on the market, it’s hard to know which ones are best. I prefer Young Living essential oils because of their Seed to Seal quality commitment. However, there are many high quality oils on the market that will also do the trick! Please just stay away from grocery store oils. They are almost never pure essential oils, which means you will be diffusing some junk into your home, and in turn, breathing it in. When there’s a massive price difference, there’s usually a reason.

essential oils for fall –

When I’m really craving that spicy/sweet smell of fall, there are a few oils that I consistently reach for. These are all great oils to get the perfect fall aroma. They can be mixed and matched to just the right scent that you’re looking for. The best part is that they each have health benefits and immune boosting properties! If you don’t have already have an extensive essential oil collection, I recommend picking one or two from each of these categories: (1) spices, (2) citrus, and (3) tree oils. You can create so many combinations out of just a few different oils! Comment below if you have any favorite fall essential oil diffuser blends. I always enjoy diffusing new combinations in our home.

cinnamon bark

Cinnamon Bark essential oil is steam distilled from the inner bark of the tree and has a warm, spicy aroma that evokes memories of the holidays when diffused. It is well known the world over as an aromatic culinary spice, and helps eliminate odors when used aromatically. Diffusing cinnamon oil in your home creates an inviting, warm environment!


Thieves® essential oil blend is a powerful combination of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary essential oils. Diffusing Thieves® eliminates air-born germs to create a healthy home! If you’re looking for a great fall-scented blend, Thieves® is a great option. You can have the scents of five powerful essential oils all from one bottle!


Ginger essential oil is obtained from the root of the ginger plant, and has a warm, spicy aroma. It is especially inviting when diffused with cinnamon, orange, and clove. Apple cider anyone?


Native to Indonesia, nutmeg is an evergreen tree cultivated for two spices derived from its fruit: nutmeg, from its seed, and mace, from the seed covering. Nutmeg has been prized since medieval times as a culinary flavoring and for use in herbal preparations. Nutmeg essential oil has a warm, spicy aroma that is energizing and uplifting to the senses.


The clove tree is a tropical evergreen species that produces thousands of small, fragrant flower buds. These buds are harvested when they ripen to a deep red color, then dried and steam distilled to produce clove essential oil. Diffuse clove with cinnamon bark and orange essential oils to create a warm, cozy environment throughout your home.


Originally native to Asia, orange trees are now cultivated around the world, including in France, Germany, and the United States. Known as liquid sunshine, orange essential oil has a sweet and uplifting aroma that brightens any room and cleanses the air when diffused.


Lemon essential oil is known for its cleansing properties, and I love to use it in home cleaning solutions for these benefits. Its fresh, zesty aroma also makes it an important top note in perfumes, as well as an effective odor neutralizer when diffused. Lemon oil adds a refreshing burst when paired with classic fall spices!


Frankincense essential oil has a grounding, woodsy aroma that can be used to enhance awareness and focus. It is considered a holy oil in the Middle East, where it has been used in religious ceremonies for thousands of years. It is best known for being one of the gifts given to Christ at his birth. Frankincense supports a healthy immune system and overall well-being. When it comes to ailments or injuries, I have often heard the phrase, “when in doubt, get frank out!” It is a beautiful oil that is very versatile.


A very large flowering tree in the myrtle family, Eucalyptus produces fragrant leaves and is also known informally as narrow-leaved peppermint. Eucalyptus has a bold, invigorating aroma and creates a refreshing breathing experience when inhaled.


Cedarwood essential oil is steam distilled from the bark of Cedrus atlantica, a close relative to the biblical Cedars of Lebanon. It is recognized for its calming, woodsy aroma. My husband calls this one the “manly oil” because it has a musky, outdoor smell – just like fall!

northern lights black spruce

Northern Lights Black Spruce essential oil is steam distilled from the needles of spruce trees. Its woodsy aroma offers a grounding aromatic experience. Has a rich, smoky, evergreen aroma that is perfect for chilly fall nights.

idaho grand fir

Also known as western white fir, Idaho grand fir is native to regions of Idaho and the Pacific Northwest, and it is the largest species of fir in the world. Idaho grand fir essential oil has a woodsy, grounding, evergreen aroma that just reminds you of walks in the woods with grandpa.
