Pumpkin Spice Diffuser Blend

Updated: Oct 9, 2020

Is there any phrase that better marks the beginning of autumn than “Pumpkin Spice?”

You begin to see it pop up everywhere, and I mean everywhere (I’m looking at you Pumpkin Chai Poo-Pourri), and suddenly a crisp chill sets upon the air and the trees begin their spectacular colorful displays.

In our home, we try to shy away from the heavy, artificial, commercial fragrances. That way we can control what goes into our air and just how strong any smells will become. So with fake pumpkin everything showing up on store shelves everywhere, I wanted to find a natural way to bring this germ-fighting, mood boosting, warming blend of spices into our living space.

Want a great self-care idea? Get your diffuser prepared with water and oil before you leave for work, so you have one button to touch when you get home to begin a personal aromatherapy escape.

New to diffusers? Let’s do a quick intro.

Diffusers are a safer alternative for natural home fragrances and use just water and essential oils to fill a room with a scented mist within minutes. There are no open flames from candles or messy wax to deal with changing. We carry a variety of styles in our store including a USB powered portable diffuser for cars, a children’s diffuser that is also a sound machine and night light, and beautiful natural finishes like bamboo or ceramic diffusers. Be mindful when diffusing, however, because not everyone tolerates scents the same and you may want to be extra careful with diffusing oils around babies and pets.

Now, let’s get to the good stuff!

Pumpkin Spice Diffuser Blend

2 drops Clove essential oil

2 drops Cinnamon essential oil

2 drops Ginger essential oil

1 drop Nutmeg essential oil

Feel free to customize this recipe by adding more or less drops or omitting an oil entirely (I know some people can’t handle cinnamon oil).

Here’s why this recipe is a perfect blend to use during this time of year.

Clove oil is a powerhouse of autumn benefits! It has been shown to have all kinds of anti-microbial properties and helps kill a wide variety of germs that may be lingering in the air.

Cinnamon oil is said to reduce stress, relieve pain, fight off infections, improve digestion, and protect against insects.

Ginger oil is well known for its warming properties, and is perfectly suited to diffusing during fall and winter months to help bring that sense of coziness we all crave.

Nutmeg oil has shown in studies to be a mood booster, and as the nights get longer and the weather turns colder and grey anything that uplifts the spirit is a welcome addition to my home.

I hope your home benefits from a little pumpkin spice magic as much as ours does. Let me know in the comments if you have tried this blend and what you think!
