I can think of no better way to welcome Fall into my home than to pick from these fall diffuser recipes using essential oils. In the process of ditching scented plug-ins and candles, I’ve started diffusing essential oils in their place. This has opened the opportunity to switch up the scents as often as I want based on the oils I have on hand and the Desert Mist Diffuser on candle flicker mode makes a great addition to my mantle and serves as a night light in our bathroom for the kids. Let’s get into some of the fall diffuser recipes and oils used in this short essential oil series.
Before we get to the recipes I wanted to take a minute to talk to you about using essential oils in a diffuser starting with the type of diffuser I use and the oils you will need for these diffuser recipes.
When I first started diffusing essential oils I used a diffuser found at Walmart. This is a good starter diffuser but in my opinion, it only covers a very small room and does not run for as long as I’d like it to. I then tried a budget-friendly diffuser from Amazon that lasted about 6 months before it quit working. I finally decided to go to the source of where I was getting my essential oils and ordered a Young Living Desert Mist Diffuser. The Young Living diffusers are by far the easiest to use, clean and maintain and they come with a one year warranty. Young Living offers a few different diffusers to choose from varying in price and function.
If you’d like more information on the Desert Mist Diffuser or Young Living Essential Oils, I am an Independent Distributor and am happy to help you.

Orange essential oil has a sweet, bright aroma reminiscent of a blossoming orchard of orange trees. Start your day with an uplifting burst of liquid sunshine by diffusing Orange as you get ready in the morning. With just a few drops, you can fill any space with a sense of peace, harmony, and creativity. Orange is delightful on its own, or you can combine it with complementary oils such as Grapefruit, Cinnamon, Neroli, and Patchouli. – source
Ginger is a popular essential oil with a warm, energizing aroma. It is steam distilled from the rhizome of the ginger plant and is part of the Zingiberaceae family. Ginger was used anciently in India and China and was taken to the Mediterranean as early as the 1st century AD. Ginger is now found throughout the world, and Ginger essential oil is found in many homes. – source
Cinnamon Bark essential oil’s warm and comforting aroma exudes a familiar scent from the naturally occurring constituent cinnamaldehyde. There’s no doubt that Cinnamon Bark is a favorite during the winter season, as its sweet and spicy scent evokes memories of the holidays. For a festive note, diffuse Cinnamon Bark with Frankincense, Orange, Tangerine, Clove, or Nutmeg. Cinnamon Bark can also be applied topically if diluted properly to avoid skin irritation. – source

Coming up on Day 2 of this series: Autumn Breeze Diffuser Recipe
The Autumn Breeze Diffuser Recipe is a crisp smelling blend of essential oils including Frankincense, Patchouli, and Cedarwood. A fun fact about Frankincense essential oil is that its nickname is the “study buddy” oil and has been used for centuries during prayer and meditation. I love diffusing Frankincense and Peppermint essential oils together to sharpen my mental state just before going into an important meeting or giving a presentation to a large group.
