Fall Essential Oil Diffuser Blends Instead of Candles!

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.

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. It just wasn’t worth it to me to risk our health. Womp, womp, womp.

(I still like to keep a few quality candles for those times when I just want the candlelight ambience, but candles really have become 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.

Fall Essential Oil Diffuser Blends Instead of Candles!

A friend had been absolutely convinced that I would love Young Living’s essential oils. I had my doubts, but I trusted her enough to give them a try. I ordered a kit that came with 11 essential oils and a diffuser. I didn’t really get what they were all about at the time. I actually thought oils were kind of weird and couldn’t figure out why I would need them beyond wanting to try a few oils to replace my scented candles.

I regret doubting her now, ha! She was absolutely right. Essential oils aren’t weird at all and they’re so easy to use. I’m so glad I gave them a chance.

Now I diffuse essential oils EVERY DAY! I love it. And of course, I am thrilled to have all the yummy fall scents for my home (no toxic candles required!).

How to get essential oils:

>>Get the same kit I got with essential oils and a diffuser here<<

You will definitely want to start with the Premium Kit I recommend because it contains all of the “basic” every day oils you’ll need to truly change your home and life. Trust me, you will love it. It comes with THIEVES essential oil, which seriously smells like fall, and it’s the best immune supporter you could ever ask for. Plus getting that kit to start with gives you the wholesale prices on it and anything else you want, including some of those other fall favorites. I’m happy to help if you have questions!

You can also follow our very own wellness Instagram account, Pure & Lovely on Instagram!

Feel free to send me an email at theinspiredroom@gmail.com with ESSENTIAL OILS in the subject line and I can help with any questions you have! I would love to help or just chat.

I hope you enjoy using these blends in your home! I’ve been diffusing the Pumpkin Spice blend pretty much nonstop this week and it’s giving me all the cozy autumn feels :)

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

  2. I love using oils in my home!

  3. 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?

    • Hi Donna, I have used a reed diffuser in the past, but I much prefer the ultrasonic diffusers like what you can get here >https://theinspiredroom.net/how-to-order-essential-oils/. 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. 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?

    • 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! https://theinspiredroom.net/how-to-order-essential-oils/ Let me know if you have questions! :)

  5. Love these recipes!!! Thank you! :)

  6. OH, YUM!!!!! I am totally going to try these! Thank you!

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

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

  9. 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.

    • 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!

    • 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!

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