Using Your Blends


The simplest way to enjoy these blends is by using an essential oil diffuser. Depending on its size and the intensity of scent you prefer, you might need to adjust the number of drops.


Add a few drops of your chosen blend to unscented dried flowers, wood chips, or even dried fruit to create a natural potpourri.

Room Spray

Combine your essential oil blend with distilled water in a spray bottle. Shake well before each spritz.

Linen Spray

Similar to a room spray but lighter. Spritz on bedsheets, curtains, and upholstery for a gentle aroma.

Final Thoughts

Fall is a season of warmth, comfort, and nostalgia. While the vibrant colors and cool breezes play their part, it's often the scents that truly make us feel at home during these months. These essential oil blends are more than just aromatic combinations; they are experiences, memories, and feelings bottled up. So, as the leaves begin to fall, let your home become an aromatic sanctuary of autumnal delight.
