This month I wanted to share our favorite fall essential oil blend. We use it in our diffuser all the time at work and always get compliments! This combination of oils smells extremely comforting and is perfect for the chilly, dreary days of fall.
How many drops you use in your diffuser is entirely up to you, and can be increased or decreased depending on how strong of a scent you prefer.
Generally, in a diffuser at home, I use 8-10 drops, though at the store we’ll often use 13-15 drops at once since it’s a large, open room.
IN YOUR DIFFUSER, DROP IN EQUAL AMOUNTS OF:
ORANGE ESSENTIAL OIL
PATCHOULI ESSENTIAL OIL
CLOVE ESSENTIAL OIL
CINNAMON BARK ESSENTIAL OIL
Patchouli sometimes has a bad stereotype associated with it, but it adds creaminess and depth to other essential oils. The scent of patchouli is also relaxing as well as mood-boosting. It’s actually one of my favorite oils.
Orange oil is also a nice mood-boosting essential oil. Increase the amount of orange in this recipe for a brighter, cheerier blend.
Clove and cinnamon bark essential oils are fantastic spice oils that have a warming effect on the body. Both of these spice oils also have antibacterial properties and are effective against airborne bacteria when diffused into the air.
Other ideas are to trade lemon oil for the orange oil in this recipe, or to add a drop of anise or nutmeg oil for a slightly different blend. The possibilities are endless.
