8 Diffuser Recipes for Fall That Will Make You Blissful


Is there anything better than the smell of a pumpkin spice candle during fall? The air is crisp, the leaves are bright, the mornings are foggy...there’s just nothing like it! I grew up in San Diego and didn’t leave until I was 29, and would always try and manufacture my own fall smells, because there’s just no fall in San Diego. No pretty leaf changes, no rain, nothing. Mostly just more dry, stifling heat. (Its really not the paradise people make it out to be, I promise!) 

In any case, when we moved to Cleveland, OH, I finally got to experience my first real fall, and it was nothing short of amazing! It quickly because my favorite season, and I’m so glad that now that we live in Seattle, we still get it. 

For those who love their fall candles though, take a peek at my previous post about the scary dangers of scented candles! Its pretty eye-opening to see just how bad something like candles can be for you. Toss them out as soon as you can!

What’s a fall-lover to do to make the house smell good without candles?

Throw some oils in the diffuser, of course! The thing I love about using the diffuser instead of candles is that not only am I making the house smell good, but we are also getting the benefits from breathing in the diffused oils as well.
