Autumn essential oil blends are a great way to enter the season’s spirit. Add them to oil burners, diffusers, or your Sunday soak in the bath.
When the air turns crisp, and the leaves on all the trees turn into beautiful golden colours, you know that autumn has arrived. Autumn is one of the best seasons to explore new essential oil recipes. Whether you’re experimenting with new blends for your diffuser, crafting your own organic room spray, or making an all-natural bath bomb, autumn is a great time for aromatherapy and homemade essential oil recipes.
Are you ready for the smell of clove and cinnamon to fill your home and invigorate your spirit? We’ll begin by finding out which essential oils are best for the season.
What Essential Oils are Best for Autumn?
Autumn essential oils are often best when blended. Imagine stepping outside your warm home into the cold, clear air of an autumn morning—the contrast many of your blends should seek. For example, cinnamon leaf essential oil with juniper or mandarin orange essential oils. That’s not to say that you can’t go with one or the other since woodsy aromas are also a staple of this season, with cedarwood, cypress, and sandalwood making an appearance.
As the leaves paint the world in hues of amber and the air turns crisp, let's embark on a journey into the enchanting realm of autumn-inspired aromatherapy. Embracing the transformative power of essential oils, we'll explore blends that capture the essence of autumn and cocoon you in warmth, comfort, and relaxation.
Clove is perhaps the most autumn-y of all essential oils in many ways, thanks to its spicy yet fresh scent. However, remember that spices like clove and cinnamon can be very strong, so don’t overdo it. Many blends and recipes will pair spice essential oils with citrusy aromas, like orange or bergamot.
