One of the things I love most about fall is the aroma that comes with it. You can smell it as soon as the leaves start changing and the temps cool off, even just a bit. The air is full of an earthy must from leaves and crisper breezes and – at least to me – it’s invigorating, refreshing, and exciting!

I find myself using my essential oils to accentuate the fall season with a ton of different diffuser blends. Here are my favorite essential oils that embody fall along with diffuser blend ideas to get your home smelling like the season!
