Fall is here in full swing and one of my FAVOURITE things about this season is the warm and cozy scents that remind me of everything on my Fall Bucket List (think pumpkin spice lattes, apple pie, and nature walks). I know I’m not the only one, and trust me I see you guys running out to stock up on your favourite candles. Y’all, I used to LOVE Fall-scented candles. BUT, did you know that all those yummy-smelling candles actually contain toxic artificial fragrances? When you burn them in your home, not only are they releasing volatile organic compounds into the air that you and your family breathe, they can also affect our respiratory, cardiovascular, endocrine, and nervous systems. YIKES! Now that I know better, I do better for me and my family, which meant ditching the candles a few years back for us. We still LOVE to enjoy all of our favourite Fall scents, but in a natural, non-toxic way. In today’s post I’m sharing all of my favourite Fall diffuser blends AND some of my favourite oily DIYs for this time of year.
Let’s chat diffusing for a quick second. We absolutely love diffusing all our favourite essential oils in place of candles because they smell just as delicious, are all natural and don’t contain all the harmful toxins that candles do. The added bonus of diffusing essential oils is the amazing benefits that these oils can have on our bodies. Let’s take the ‘Thieves’ oil blend for an example – it contains all the delicious clove, cinnamon, lemon smells that we associate with Fall, PLUS it is amazing for immune support which is so important at this time of year. This is why I love diffusing oils – we get all the yummy cozy scents filling our home while naturally supporting our bodies without the nasty side effects of toxins from traditional candles.
OK, now for the good stuff. Here’s a quick rundown of some of my favourite diffuser blends for Fall. Also keep in mind that you can totally adjust the amount of drops of each oil to suit your preference!
3 drops Clove, 3 drops Cinnamon Bark, 2 drops Nutmeg, 2 drops Orange, 1 drop Ginger
Walk in the Woods
3 drops Idaho Blue Spruce, 2 drops Cypress, 2 drops Pine, 2 drops Lemon
3 drops Clove, 3 drops Christmas Spirit, 2 drops Lemon, 2 drops Tangerine
4 drops Bergamot, 3 drops Orange, 3 drops Stress Away
2 drops Cassia, 2 drops Cardamom, 2 drops Orange, 2 drops Pine
Warm Apple Pie
3 drops Lemon, 3 drops Cinnamon Bark, 2 drops Clove
I love me a good DIY and these Fall-inspired ones smell absolutely delicious!
1 ½ cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar
½ cup melted coconut oil

In a 2oz glass spray bottle, combine about 30 drops of your favourite fall oils (or use some of the blends above), a splash of witch hazel, and fill the rest with water.
Shake well and spray all over your home for an amazing scent.
STAY WELL ROLLER
OK you guys, this is one of my favourite rollers for this time of year because it gives us ALL the immune support. In a 10mL roller bottle add 10 drops Thieves, 10 drops Frankincense, 10 drops Lemon and fill with carrier oil of your choice.
I can’t wait for you guys to try these diffuser blends and DIYs, and to make it SUPER easy for you to try, I’ll be gifting a welcome package containing everything you need for both DIYs, the wellness roller and a diffuser bomb of the pumpkin spice blend to anyone who orders a YL Premium Starter Kit and uses it as their first ER order using my link here.
