Fall Essential Oil Diffuser Blends Instead of Candles!

I love filling my home with all the wonderful fall scents! Don’t you?

You might remember how obsessed I used to be with my fall candles this time of year.

Like, I really, really loved them. Sigh. I would smell all of the candles at every store, just to find the very best. I burned candles all the time. Candles were a part of my fall ritual.

But once I learned that burning candles and room sprays can release harmful chemicals into the air, I decided that I should stop using them (I have thyroid issues so I became extra cautious about toxins in our home). It just wasn’t worth it to me to risk our health. Womp, womp, womp.

(I still like to keep a few quality soy candles for those times when I just want the candlelight ambience, but candles really have become more of a rarity around our house now.)

But y’all. For awhile I just genuinely felt so sad that I could no longer burn my fall candles. :(

I know in the grand scheme of things, the loss of fall scented candles is not a real crisis. But I did want to create a healthier home for my family, and that’s a worthwhile pursuit. So I went in search of a better alternative.

I am SO GRATEFUL a friend told me about essential oils. I have been OBSESSED for years now!! They give me all the warm cozy scents I love (and benefit our health, not harm it!).

Fall Essential Oil Diffuser Blends Instead of Candles!

Now I diffuse essential oils EVERY DAY! I love them for so many other things, too (like cleaning, skincare, and wellness support) but of course, I am thrilled to have all the yummy fall scents for my home. 

How to get essential oils:

You’ll want to start with this kit of essential oils and a diffuser found here as it contains all of the every day oils you’ll need to truly change your home and life. I cannot recommend this kit highly enough. It’s the exact one I bought years ago that really changed my whole perspective.

Essential oils are about so much more than just making your home smell good! Most store bought oils contain preservatives and fillers so they are not good for you. That’s why I love and recommend this brand, Young Living. They are transparent and committed to the purity of the oils.

Getting started with these oils is going to change your entire home and life for the better. And I feel so strongly about this, I offer to help you every step of the way and invite you to my super fun community to learn more.

But back to fall scents. I know you also want your home to smell like fall, because FALL NESTING!!! so you’ll be thrilled to know that this kit comes with the diffuser and THIEVES essential oil, which seriously will make your home smell like the most amazing autumn day (and even better, it’s the best immune supporter you could ever ask for.)

Because I love fall so much, when you order your kit, I will personally send you a FREE bottle of my favorite fall and Christmas oil blend, PLUS my top secret never shared publicly before Anthropologie Volcano Candle Inspired Blend recipe…so you can make your house smell like Anthropologie. AHHH!!!! I’ve perfected this recipe over the years but never published it, so it will be my gift to you, too.

I’ll also send you a book I love about how to use oils and my favorite fall essential oil diffuser recipes.

Just send me a message at my wellness email [email protected] when you order your kit so I know to send you the additional seasonal blend (this offer cannot be combined with any other offer).

Be sure to follow our my very own wellness Instagram account, Pure & Lovely on Instagram!

    Thanks, I love experimenting with oils and haven’t really heard about this one:) Will definitely have to try it though!:)

  2. Deanna Rabe

    I love using oils in my home!

  3. Donna

    Thank you for posting about the health hazards of candles. I used to have lots of candles but after reading several articles on what is in them, I stopped using candles. Will have to try some of the combinations you list. Have you used a reed diffuser?

    • Melissa @ The Inspired Room

      Hi Donna, I have used a reed diffuser in the past, but I much prefer the ultrasonic diffusers like what you can get here > The reason I prefer it is because those diffusers break the essential oils into millions of microparticles, disperses them into the air, and releases the constituents for the health benefits as well as the amazing scent. Young Living’s essential oils are such incredible quality. I love all of the oils and the diffusers that come in the kit!

  4. JanieB

    Thanks so much for this post, I am eager to try the essential oils. I have always loved candles too, but I have some very curious kitties, so I had quit using them. How many diffusers do you need in each room to make it smell really good?

    • Melissa @ The Inspired Room

      With Young Living’s oils and diffusers, you only need one diffuser for a room. Their oils are AMAZING quality, highly concentrated so you don’t need many drops. Because their oils are such great quality, the scent and wellness benefits will travel well through a room. I have one diffuser in my bedroom and one in my dining area. Those are the two I use every day, but you can also move them from room to room so it’s fine to just have one!

      You get a diffuser with this kit, I know you’ll LOVE it! Let me know if you have questions! :)

  5. Melinda Young

    Love these recipes!!! Thank you! :)

  6. Joanna

    I have a diffuser so can I just order the Fall oils? I don’t want to become a member.

    • Melissa @ The Inspired Room

      You can! Just hit retail instead of wholesale and buy. Just message me if I can help!

  7. Carol

    Holy smokes! Those are expensive. I can’t afford it. :(

    • Melissa @ The Inspired Room

      I definitely recommend starting with the wholesale account and not ordering at retail, that way you can get amazing deals on all the oils you want. Let me know if I can help! <3

  8. Sheila

    My husband doesn’t like scents in the home. I love them but candles and plugins are a no no. I miss my home having a signature sent other then the meal I just cooked or the trash lol. I was wondering if oils are the way to go, are they strong? Maybe if our house just smelled clean he wouldn’t notice I have scents going.

    • Melissa @ The Inspired Room

      They can be as strong or subtle as you want, it’s impacted by the ratio of drops and water. The scent of EO is not sickening like the artificial scents, it’s actually good for you! I definitely recommend starting with the kit and learning from there. I’m happy to help, there’s a link in the post!

    • Melissa @ The Inspired Room

      Oh and in the kit is an oil called Purification that will get rid of all the bad smells :) and leave your house smelling fresh and clean! The kit has all the best oils for everyday use, you can always graduate to the fancy ones later!

  9. Diane

    Do you fill your YL diffuser to the fill line with these fall recipe blends? I’m never sure about the ratios! Thanks
