Ahh, fall...it's *almost* here. My favorite are the amazing scents associated with the season. Check out my Ten Amazing Fall Diffuser Recipes that capture the feeling of this time of the year perfectly. They're an awesome, chemical-free way to bring your home straight into autumn.
I just love diffusing...it's so uplifting and can support so many things. We've been oily for well over a year and we run our diffusers all day and all night (sleeping like babies, I tell ya). While I often diffuse to help support our sleep habits or immune systems (once a germaphobe, always a germaphobe), it's nice to diffuse to help support good moods and great days, too, no? These familiar (and some unfamiliar) combinations below are warm, spicy oils to diffuse in your house in the cooler months.
OCOTEA + GINGER
Ocotea has a very cinnamon-y type of aroma. It is one of my latest faves. I use it to support healthy weight management. But, I diffuse it to say "ahhhhhh". It's one of those aromas that can be diffused and get loads of comments from company about. Everyone is dying to know what that lovely scent is! Ginger is very earthy (it's definitely not a cookie-scent, y'all). I usually use it to help me not turn green during a bumpy flight (or car ride). I love the slight earthiness it can add with Ocotea, though. I go heavier on the Ocotea for sure. For the Home Diffuser, I use 6 drops of Ocotea and 2 drops of Ginger.
THIEVES + GINGER
Ahhh, Thieves. Is there anything better? Not only does it smell like fall (so crisp and spicy), it also helps to support our immune systems. I combine it with Ginger for that signature fall smell...again, easy on the Ginger. For the Home Diffuser, I use 6 drops of Thieves and 2 drops of Ginger.
LIGHT THE FIRE + ORANGE
Have you experienced Young Living's newest oil, Light the Fire. I bought mine at convention and have LOVED it. So rich and spicy with lovely cinnamon undertones...it's delicious, too. Pair it with some Orange for a very unexpected, yet comforting, fall diffuser mix. I don't diffuse this one at night...Light the Fire does just that for me...it gets me go-go-going! For the Home Diffuser, I use 4 drops of Light the Fire and 4 drops of Orange.
CINNAMON BARK + NUTMEG + CLOVE
Is there anything better than fall baking? These three scents capture that essence. For the Home Diffuser, I use 4 drops of Cinnamon Bark, 2 drops of Nutmeg, and 2 drops of Clove.
OCOTEA + ORANGE
Again, I can't get enough of Ocotea this time of the year with all of its warmth and goodness. And Orange is just an all-around good diffusing oils and pairs well with so many things. This is a good spicy citrus scent...almost like a wassail, I suppose. For the Home Diffuser, I use 4 drops of Ocotea and 4 drops of Orange.
CINNAMON BARK + ORANGE
This one is similar to the Ocotea and Orange...but with more "bite" and spice. I use it all the way through the Christmas season, too...it's a very familiar and comforting smell. For the Home Diffuser, I use 4 drops of Cinnamon Bark and 4 drops of Orange.
ABUNDANCE + OCOTEA
Abundance is one oil I can not live without. No lie, I have six bottles...I will never run out of it. The aroma is super warm and inviting. It contains Orange, clove, cinnamon bark, frankincense, ginger, spruce, patchouli and myrrh...all very warm and several spicy oils. These just scream autumn, y'all! Paired with a little Ocotea and it's a lovely, lovely aroma. I wear Abundance in my diffuser necklace and get comments on it every day...even from strangers. It's powerful and so amazing. For the Home Diffuser, I use 6 drops of Abundance and 2 drops of Ocotea.
LIGHT THE FIRE + ORANGEThis is another great one for the kitchen. Light the Fire and Nutmeg blend beautifully together for a nutty, warm aroma. For the Home Diffuser, I use 6 drops of Light the Fire and 2 drops of Nutmeg.
ABUNDANCE + OCOTEA
While I definitely don't consider Abundance to be a very "foodie" oil, it still pairs so nicely with Orange. It's another warm and comforting aroma that I could breathe in all day long. For the Home Diffuser, I use 4 drops of Abundance and 4 drops of Orange.
