Fall is in the air!
Scents for Fall time

by Penny Keay

Certain scents immediately remind you of fall. Crisp air outdoors will soon having everyone spending more time indoors.

Several essential oils that remind you of fall include the spicy ones like Cinnamon and Cloves. These are brightened up with orange or other light citrus smells. Rich scents like Ginger and vanilla make your home smell yummy. Even if you didn’t bake anything!

The great thing about these fall type essential oils are their great defenses against the cold and flu bugs when we are exposed to them. Especially now that everyone is spending more time enclosed in smaller spaces indoors, it is a great time to use essential oils.

Experiment a little and have fun blending different spices and herbal essential oils to make your very own, soon to become your favorite fall scents. Add just a little citrus, woody or floral to keep the nose guessing!

Great smells of fall essential oils along with their germ fighting abilities will make your time blending worth it in the long term as you keep your family healthy and happy.

Try this Fall Blend:

Cinnamon – 25 drops
Allspice – 25 drops
Anise – 15 drops
V’nilla Blend – 10 drops

Blend all in an amber bottle, and then diffuse a few drops using your favorite diffuser.

Does your POTPOURRI'S need to be freshened?

Has your potpourri from last fall and winter become neglected? Don't throw it out! Just revive it!

Simply add your favorite essential oils to your potpourri, shake or stir it up and you are ready to enjoy it again for several more weeks.

To me this is a time to experiment with new combinations and /or use up old oils that are about to expire. Of course, you can buy new ingredients too, but why not freshen up what you already have?

For those that don't want to mess with that we do have cute little potpourri dishes. All you have to do with them is add a few cotton balls with your favorite scents dropped on them. Replace the cover and let the essential oils evaporate over time. (You can put potpourri petals, shavings, etc in the dishes too).

Here is a FLOWERY BLEND you can add to your Potpourri dish

Rosewood NE - 4 drops
Geranium - 3 drops
Grapefruit - 2 drops
Petitgrain - 2 drops
Palmarosa - 2 drops
Orange - 2 drops

Blend then drop onto the contents of your Potpourri dish.

Woodsy Potpourri Blend

Sandalwood or S’Woods Blend - 4 drops
Patchouli - 3 drops
V 'nillas - 2 drops
Nutmeg - 2 drops
Ylang Ylang - 3 drops
Lime - 3 drops

Blend and add to your Potpourri dish. Stir as needed. Refreshed as needed.

Don't have a Dish filled with Potpourri?

This is easy to fix. Here is a simple recipe to mix together. Pine Needles, Cedar Shavings, Putka Pods, Dried Orange Peels or Slices, Cinnamon Sticks, and anything else you would like to add.

This blend of botanical plants and parts will give you an easy base to add your essential oils or other scenting oils.

Some suggestions for scenting that are quick and easy include Celebration Blend, Winter's Warmth Blend and Conifer Blend

Adding these to Fiber Bits - a natural organic fiber by-product made from corncobs - will help to extend the scenting of your potpourri. As you may be aware of, essential oils evaporate rather quickly. Using the fiber bits will help slow the evaporation rate.

Be creative, have FUN! There is no right or wrong way to create your own potpourri.
