What do you love most about the fall season?
Light sweaters and leggings, hot apple cider on chilly mornings, the crimson color of the leaves – is it possible to pick only one thing?
One thing I love about this season is the autumn scents. Back in the Midwest, you step outside and take in the smell of leaves falling and blowing in the wind. It doesn’t smell quite fall-ish here in the desert, so I’m bringing autumn to Arizona by diffusing fall essential oils!
And the autumn essential oils don’t only smell amazing, but they deliver several physical and emotional benefits. You can keep these oils on hand all year round for digestive, metabolic and immune support. Breathe in the comforting fall scents knowing the oils are cleansing the air. Additionally, some of the oils can be stimulating and energizing.
I love using some of these oils for healthy fall baking or a spicy addition to my morning cup of coffee. Ah, there are so many incredible things about the fall essential oils, so let’s dive in!
5 Fall Essential Oils
Here are the best smelling essential oils to make your home smell like fall:
1. Cinnamon Bark
Obviously, cinnamon has to be included in your autumn essential oils kit. This smell has a warmth to it that brings comfort during the colder months.
I love using Cinnamon Bark oil for my fall baking. It pairs so nicely with apples, pears, pumpkin – just about anything, really. The smell of Cinnamon Bark baking in the oven with something fluffy makes the house smell even better than if you were diffusing it, in my opinion. I put a drop in my sweet potato waffle batter and just love when that scent wafts through the air in the morning.
A drop of cinnamon also goes nicely in a pumpkin spice latte or your nighttime tea. Just be careful not to overdo it; Cinnamon Bark is a highly potent oil and doesn’t work for everyone to ingest. It typically isn’t a problem in baked goods, but be careful with one cup of coffee or tea.
A few benefits of Cinnamon essential oil:
- Cinnamon Bark supports healthy metabolic function.
- This essential oil strengthens a healthy immune system.*
- Cinnamon is the oil of sexual harmony and can promote feelings to help you accept your body.

- Place two to three drops of Cinnamon essential oil in a spray bottle with water for a quick and effective cleaning spray.
- Add this essential oil to your favorite recipes in place of ground cinnamon for a delightfully spicy flavor.
I ordered Cassia essential oil on a whim this month, and to my surprise, I’ve become a bit obsessed with it. It has a strong, spicy and slightly woody aroma that is warming, calming and uplifting. It’s in the same family as cinnamon, but I actually like the smell even better.

Clove is a stimulating and energizing oil that adds a spicy scent to fall essential oil blends. This is a great oil to include in your pumpkin recipes.
With seasonal threats being high this time of year, Clove is great to have on hand. It helps to quench free radicals and maintain a healthy immune system. Clove is also well known for having cleansing properties that may help protect against environmental threats.

doTERRA’s OnGuard blend combines the previous three oils plus Wild Orange, Eucalyptus and Rosemary to make a powerful oil for immune support during the fall season.

I’m a big fan of Ginger essential oil mainly because of its digestive properties, but it’s also a great one to include in your fall essential oils blend. Diffuse it with Cinnamon or any of the other autumn oils listed here, or put a drop in your tea for a happy tummy. It’s also great to cook with!
