This Pumpkin Spice Essential oil blend is a fan favorite during the fall season. It has a warm, comforting aroma that makes you feel all cozy inside.
It is a particularly versatile combination too as you can add several different aromas to give it a unique twist.
I’d suggest starting out with the classic recipe. Then if you want to experiment a bit add just a drop of another oil and see if you like that better. The next time, try a different combination.
Classic Pumpkin Spice Essential Oil Blend
The pumpkin spice essential oil blend starts with these 3 scents:
These are the classic fall scents that you will find in many fall essential oil blends.
For this blend, use equal parts clove and nutmeg and about twice as much of the cinnamon. Clove and nutmeg have strong aromas. You need to add a little extra cinnamon so its sweet aroma is not overpowered by the stronger scents of clove and nutmeg.
As with all aromatherapy blends, the Pumpkin Spice blend can be adapted to suit your own preference. If you want a more complex aroma with hints of other spices, add a drop of one or both of these oils to the blend.
The addition of these oils will give the blend a nice spicy aroma.
Be careful not to add too much at the start. Just add a drop of any one of the additional oils to the basic recipe. Leave the diffuser on for a while and inhale the earthy aromas of the blend. If you prefer a stronger aroma, add another drop of cardamom or ginger essential oil.
There’s no better way to celebrate the season than by adding this warm and comforting Pumpkin Spice blend in your diffuser. No, the blend does not have a pumpkin scent to it. It smells of the spices that are typically added when making pumpkin pie.
