DIY Fall Scented Room Spray

Make your own room spray to celebrate the fall season


Ahhhhhhh, it's finally September and I can finally wave my basic fall lovin' freak flag with pride. I actually had hubs pull all my fall stuff down from the garage storage in late August, but I also landed a fun paid Instagram post to show off my decor, so that was like the proverbial icing on the cake for this fall loving gal. One of the best parts of fall, besides the cooler weather, is the SMELLS. Crisp air just has a wonderful scent! But so does pumpkin pie, pumpkin spice, chili, and all the other smells associated with fall. Now, I'm not making a room spray that smells like chili, but this one (actually, I give several of my favorite blends!) will brighten the smell of your home so you can welcome in the fall season with me.

Yeah, I know fall doesn't officially start until Sept. 22. It's also currently 95 degrees as I write this. Don't even try to rain on my fall parade.

Now, I've written about this before, and I'll say it again: If you're scenting your home with candles, you're doing yourself and your family a disservice at best. You're fuming your home with man-made chemicals that are harmful to breathe. Anyone else hold their breath when they walk by the Yankee Candle Company at the mall because you instantly (and I mean instantly) get a headache? Yeah, that's because all those artificial smells aren't good for you, and your body is reacting to get you away from them.


Not only that, but if you're in the season of life of young children like I am, you know that candles are a huge safety hazard in addition to being bad for your health. If you don't like house fires or severe burns, ditch the candles! There's a far better way to scent your home, and it involves essential oils. I've written a bunch of posts on the wellness benefits of a number of essential oils, but this post is keeping it at a superficial level - we're just talking about how great they make your home smell here!

Looking for a room spray for your home in spring? Yup, I've got a great blend for you in this post.


DIY Fall Scented Room Spray
Each blend starts with these basics:
- small to medium sized glass spray bottle (here's the exact one pictured and I also like these)
- pinch of sea salt
- distilled water

Place the sea salt in the bottle, and then add one of these blends that are perfect for fall:
Pumpkin Spice:
5 drops Christmas Sprit
3 drops Cinnamon Bark
2 drops Clove
2 drops Nutmeg
1-2 drops Ginger

Fall Nights:
3 drops Clove
3 drops Cinnamon Bark
3 drops Nutmeg
2 drops Balsam Fir

Fall Is In The Air
4 drops Christmas Spirit
2 drops Clove
3 drops Northern Blue Spruce

Add the oils directly to the sea salt and shake to distribute the oils evenly. The salt will help suspend the oils in the water, but I like to give the room spray a shake before I spray it. Fill the bottle up with distilled water. That's it! Super easy. It's safe to spray around animals and young children. This is a great hostess gift, and also perfect for the upcoming gift giving season (especially the Fall Is In The Air blend).



One quick note about oils - Please don't buy them off Amazon! You don't know who has touched the oils, how they've been stored (they need to be in a cool place away from light), or how old they are. Young Living's oils are the best quality, and if you need help ordering through their site, contact me here and I'll walk you through the process. It's even better to buy sub-par quality oils from Whole Foods than on Amazon, because they're stored and shipped appropriately (although those oils are NOT safe to ingest, and I also wouldn't put them on my skin).

It's easy to make your own nontoxic room sprays, this one is perfect for fall

  7. This is awesome! The other day I was diffusing oils and still had a trace of thieves in my diffuser from another day. It smelled like fall and was SO nice! Pinning this for later.
