As the summer turns to autumn, the outdoors is filled with distinctive sights, sounds and smell. The temperature starts dropping and night seems to arrive earlier every day. The leaves start to change colors going from green to yellow, orange and brown ever so slowly. Every morning, the leaves take on a slightly different shade than the day before. Then comes the time when they start falling gently to the ground. The slow transformation in the outdoor landscape is mesmerizing.
The Fallen Leaves Essential Oil Blend is a great way to bring those distinctly fall scents indoors. With its clever combination of fall spice and fruity notes, the aroma evokes memories of being outdoors in the fall when the leaves start to change colors and fall gently to the ground.
Recipe for Fallen Leaves Essential Oil Blend
The Fallen Leaves essential oil blend begins very simple with three oils – ginger, patchouli, and orange. You can then choose to customize it by adding in a drop or two of other scents.
For a classic Fallen Leaves blend add:
Add the essential oils in a dark-colored glass bottle and keep it handy for use whenever the mood strikes you. This article on How To Use Your Essential Oil Diffuser has useful information on how many drops you should put in your diffuser.
To infuse more of an outdoor smell to the blend, add a drop of eucalyptus or peppermint essential oil to the blend. Start with just 1 drop of each oil as they both have very strong scents. Add more only if you want a stronger forest smell to the essential oil blend.
Orange essential oil gives this blend its crisp, distinctly autumn aromas. It has a subtle scent as compared to the other two oils so don’t reduce the quantity or that fruity scent will get completely overpowered.
You could add a drop of eucalyptus or peppermint essential oil to the blend to infuse more of an outdoor smell to the blend.
Both eucalyptus and peppermint have very strong scents, so if you do decide to add either of these oils to the original Fallen Leaves Blend, start with just 1 drop of each oil and test. Add more only if you want a stronger forest smell to the essential oil blend.
