The Best Essential Oil Diffuser Blends for Autumn

Cosy up with these fun recipes and ready-made remedies.

Scents steal the show during the autumn season - whether its the form of a candle, some festive baking, or a warm and spicy drink.

It's undeniable that wonderful smells are everywhere, so how could we possibly resist the urge to include them in our homes and workspaces?

Those of us who have already developed an extensive aromatherapy collection over the years will know that there is no ingredient more key to a festive-smelling home than some warming essential oils.

Ranging from spicy and earthy to fruity and fresh, there's an endless number of scent combinations that can be created, enjoyed, and saved for seasons to come.

The main benefit of essential oils over other shop-bought scents is the range of natural properties that come along with them.

These properties can not only leave your home smelling nice, but allow your mind and body to feel cleared and replenished also.

So, with that in mind, we've created a list of our top autumnal essential oil blends to make, diffuse, and reuse around your home.


Please note that this is only a rough guide on how to make essential oil blends.

You can find out more information about how to blend by notes, purposes and scents by following our Essential Oils Blending Guide.

  • Select a blend from below and add the suggested number of drops to your diffuser one at a time - we've only featured 10 drops per blend so, if you don't like a scent, you haven't wasted too many of your oils making it.
  • Once you've confirmed you enjoy the blend, feel free to add more to your diffuser, or adjust any quantities as needed.
  • Be sure to always refer to your diffuser's instructions while doing this, so you don't accidentally add more drops than it supports.
  • Alternatively, you can add your blend to an amber glass bottle and save for future use.


  • Avoid diffusing your blend for longer than 1 hour at a time - too much diffusion could cause an increased sensitivity to the oil, not to mention a wastage of product!
  • Do not apply undiluted to the skin, always use a carrier oil like or if you prefer topical application.
