I’ve been using essential oils for around five years now, mostly with a diffuser but I also make my own roller blends and apply some oils on the skin to remedy issues (mostly allergy symptoms).
But recently, I’ve really ramped up my use of essential oils, especially in my diffuser — I even bought a second diffuser so I could have even more oils going! Because of this, I started gathering oil blend recipes on Pinterest and I really enjoy putting scents and benefits together every morning before I start work.
I’ve put together a list of my favorite ones for the fall season and I hope they are as useful for you as they are for me!
– 3 drops eucalyptus, 3 drops grapefruit, 2 drops lemongrass, 2 drops lavender, 2 drops lemon, and 2 drops rosemary
I suffer from awful allergy symptoms in the fall and winter and you cannot go wrong with a eucalyptus blend. Lavender also helps to calm inflammation that’s causing many of the symptoms.
– 6 drops orange, 3 drops cinnamon bark, 2 drops nutmeg, 1 drop clove
I originally started adding this blend to my diffuser because I wanted a fall scent (if you leave out the orange, its more of a cookie smell). But, it has several benefits, too! Orange helps relieve tension in the body, which can help with headaches. Cinnamon is known to help the digestive system and sore muscles.
Scent Before the Storm
– Equal parts cedar wood, eucalyptus, grapefruit, and orange
This is my favorite blend! I have always loved the way the air smells before a hard rain and this captures that so well. Cedar wood essential oil also helps with inflammation and relieves coughing, so it’s another good one to help with allergy symptoms.
– 5 drops lime, 2 drops bergamot, 3 drops peppermint
This is a fun one, and lime essential oil is a mood booster! Bergamot is also known for lifting the spirits and speeding up the healing process. Peppermint provides energy… so this is a perfect little cocktail.
– Equal parts lavender, cedar wood, and grapefruit
Again with the stormy smells. Lavender and cedar are obviously wins, but grapefruit helps reduce stress and balance blood pressure…. which I could always use!
If there are fall blends you’ve been using, I’d love to know what they are! I’ll share winter blends when the time is right 🙂
