A Must-Have Blend This Season With the Best Essential Oils for Fall

It’s autumn and I am here for it. 

Sweaters. Candles. Pumpkin spice. Boots. All the things. There’s something magical about fall right?

I haven’t even gotten to all the smells. Can we just agree that fall aromas win?

In celebration of autumn, we are releasing a new blend that brings all the fall aromas together.

Around the office here at Simply Earth, this one keeps getting put in the diffuser. That’s how I know I formulated a good one. 🙂 

The Essential Oils for Fall That Make This Autumn Air Blend

This blend of essential oils is the perfect scent for fall. This combo of oils brings the aroma together and makes this oil a great option for DIY skincare recipes. 

Cassia Essential Oil

This oil will remind you of cinnamon but has a sweeter aroma that we love for all the fall things. 

Cassia Essential Oil was found in a study1 to have antioxidant and skin lightening properties. This will help keep your skin looking youthful and glowy.

Cassia Essential Oil can be skin irritating. That’s why we made sure to only use a little of the oil in the blend and complement it with oils that are more gentle on the skin. 

Orange Essential Oil

The aroma of the Autumn Air blend reminds me of walking through an apple orchard. That’s because of the Orange Essential Oil in this blend. It adds a slightly fruity note to Autumn Air Essential Oil Blend. 

Orange Essential Oil is rich in antioxidants 2 and enhances skin penetration due to its d-limonene content3

Lemon Essential Oil

Some Fall essential oil blends smell overwhelmingly like cinnamon. The citrus aroma of Lemon and Orange Essential Oils helps balance that out in this blend, taking the aroma from a coffee shop to an autumn orchard.

Like Orange Essential Oil, Lemon Essential Oil brings antioxidant 2  and skin penetration benefits due to it’s d-limonene natural content3

Balsam Fir Essential Oil

Balsam Fir Essential Oil brings an outdoor air vibe to this blend because of its light pine scent. Because what’s better than walking through the woods filled with autumn leaves?

Ho Wood Essential Oil

Ho Wood Essential Oil has become a popular replacement for Rosewood Essential Oil. Rosewood Essential Oil comes from a tree that is now endangered. We use Ho Wood Essential Oil as a more sustainable alternative.

If you take a look at Ho Wood Essential Oil GC/MS test results you’ll see linalool as one of its main components. This chemical gives this oil antioxidant properties4. This is a gentle oil that helps counteract the irritating effects of Cassia Essential Oil to make this blend safe to use on the skin.

I formulated this blend, so I’m biased. But I think this is the best fall aroma there is out there. It just smells so stinkin’ good. 

Things to Remember When Using This Blend

Whenever you’re using an essential oil on your skin, it needs to be diluted with a carrier oil like coconut oil or almond oil. If this oil is not diluted properly it may cause skin irritation. We recommend using a 3% dilution rate or less with this blend. Check out this dilution chart for diluting Autumn Air Essential Oil properly. 

This essential oil is safe to use with kids age 10+.
