Easy DIY Trick To Make Your Home Smell Like Fall

You know how certain smells bring back memories? This Easy DIY Trick To Make Your Home Smell Like Fall recipe brings me back to me childhood.  Cinnamon and oranges are perfect fall scents that remind me of falling leaves, cool breezes, and family gatherings. I live in Miami so I really do not get to experience the fall weather. This DIY trick makes my home feel like fall, and transports me to those memories.

You are probably seeing lots of fall scented candles in stores but the truth is most of them are made of petroleum-based paraffin with artificial scents. Air fresheners are no better. I am very sensitive to fragrances and do not tolerate them. They are very popular but contain an array of hazardous substances which may compromise your health.

There is nothing better than a natural scent for your home free of chemicals. Chemical sprays, plug-ins and scented candles contain ingredients that have been linked with a raised risk of asthma in adults and children.

  1. Once you get used to 100% pure essential oils and homemade fragrances it’s hard to go back to synthetic. I like that this recipe is extremely minimalist. I usually add a few more ingredients for this natural stove top scent. I’ll try this streamlined version right now!

    I do this with a variety of natural scents and sometimes include essential oil. If you reduce the liquid and then put it wee tiny glass bottles, like small spice jars, you can set on or hang off radiators. top up with reserve liquid. Lovely lovely
