I'm Amanda and I’m passionate about creating a well loved and well lived in home for my family and I I'd love to help you do the same!
Fall is my favourite season! Bring on the crisp air, changing colours, spiced cider, blanket scarves and pumpkin picking! There’s almost nothing I like better than savouring a hot chai latté and strolling through crisp fallen leaves in a favourite cozy knit! Fall is also my favourite season for essential oils. The smells of nutmeg, clove and cinnamon are warming and comforting and I love filling our house with the scents of the season. But you can use essential oils for so much more than creating yummy diffuser blends. Make beauty products, bake, support your family’s wellness, tend your fall garden and more…here are all the best fall essential oil ideas to keep you cozy!
I like to stock up on my favourite fall essential oils before the season is in full swing so that I am ready when the leaves start to change and the air turns crisp. Here are my must-have oils for fall:
I used to love burning fall scented candles. But when I learned how toxic most candles are and how many chemicals they release into the air, I decided to ditch and switch! I ditched candles and switched to diffusing essential oils. You get all the yummy smells, plus the added aromatherapy benefits without the toxic chemicals or the fire hazard! I make sure my diffuser is set to “flickering candlelight” mode to retain the cozy ambiance! Try these delicious and warming blends in your diffuser this fall!
For something a little different try using pinecones as diffusers! Make these fall scented pinecones to use centerpieces or to put in decorative bowls around the house!
This year will be a little different. Whether you are returning to the classroom, homeschooling, or trying something in between, here are some ways to use essential oils to help cope with this year’s uncertain back to school routines.
When it’s not wine o’clock yet…
When that energy low hits…
When Mama needs a break…
Here are some of the ways you can support your littles with essential oils this school year:
KidScents GeneYus – Diffuse this blend made especially for kids to help them focus.
KidScents T-Gize – Apply directly on sore tummies for relief. Great for back to school butterflies!
Try diffusing some sleepy time blends to help your little ones get a better night’s sleep. This Feather The Owl Diffuser is the cutest and doubles as a nightlight. Diffuse a few drops of KidScents DreamEase!
You can buy the Feather The Owl Diffuser and a selection of KidScents oils in the new Little Oilers Starter Kit from Young Living! (To purchase simply enter 19017226 in both the Sponsor and Enroller fields on the website.)
Support your minis health with a wellness roller containing anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting oils. You can roll this along the spine or apply to the bottoms of the feet before bed!
We also use this blend if the girls are feeling under the weather or feel the sniffles coming on!
Our girls also have their own little bottles of Thieves Hand Sanitizer in their backpacks. Most sanitizer gels are made with petroleum, but this all natural version is made with peppermint and doesn’t dry out their delicate skin.
Teachers are under a lot of extra pressure this year. Consider taking a gift now instead of waiting for the end of the year! Here are some ideas of gifts for teachers or supplies to offer for the classroom:
Make this blend in a 10ml roller bottle topped with fractionated coconut oil. Can be rolled on topically daily to support immunity and wellness.

Did you know you can preserve pumpkins using essential oils instead of bleach or other chemicals? Just make this DIY Pumpkin Spray!
Oils can also be used directly in the garden…
+Add Peppermint oil to your compost pile to keep away pests and mask some of the smell!
+Turn over your garden bed soil and add oils to keep the pests away and cover perennials with mulch sprayed with oils as well.
Here are some oils that you can use to fight unwelcome garden guests and attract beneficial visitors:
To Make Garden Spray:
+Add 10 drops of essential oil to a gallon of water with a couple of drops of castile soap. If a spray bottle is preferred, you can also add 2-3 drops of EO for every cup of water used, plus a drop of castile soap.
You can spray or soak every couple of weeks to keep the garden healthy.
To Make Garden Booster:
+Mix essential oils into Epsom salts and add a layer around your garden. Not only will this help to keep pests away, but it will give your soil and plants a Magnesium boost!
