10 of the Most Fall-tastic Essential Oils

Plant Therapy Fall Blends

When autumn rolls around, it’s time to open our hearts and give thanks for all the things we are grateful for. That crisp morning air is exhilarating, the bright color spectrum of the foliage is remarkable, and who doesn’t love finally bringing out all of their sweater-weather wardrobes? If you’re a fan of fall (and really, who isn’t?), then now is the perfect time to bring the aromas of this wonderful season into your life!

So, what does fall smell like to you? Is it warm and spicy? Rich and sweet? Does it just make you want to curl up on the couch under your softest blanket with a delicious mug of tea? Even though we all may have different ideas about the best parts of fall, there are definitely some quintessential aromas that come to mind. We’ve gathered together some of our favorite fall essential oils for you to enjoy during this amazing time of the year!


Clove Bud

Plant Therapy Clove Bud Essential Oil

Crack open a bottle of this spicy essential oil and you may instantly start imaging hot cups of Chai tea, warm apple butter, and an extra cozy evening. Clove Bud has a distinct aroma that is very easy to pick out. In fact, it can quickly overpower a blend with just a few drops, so use carefully! It adds the perfect touch of spiciness to your favorite fall blends and can even be used topically to enjoy its therapeutic benefits. Dilute this powerful essential oil to a maximum of 0.5% in your favorite carrier oil and massage onto aching joints for some all natural pain relief.

Vanilla Oleoresin

Plant Therapy Vanilla Oleoresin Essential Oil

Warm like Clove Bud, but strongly sweet instead of spicy. Vanilla is a scent most of us have been familiar with since we were children digging in the cookie jar! Its inviting aroma makes it a perfect autumn essential oil, whether you want to diffuse it – or wear it! Dilute it to 1-2% in a carrier oil for amazing solid perfumes, lip balms, or a delicious smelling roll-on bottle (just remember to shake it good every time you use it! The Vanilla will settle). Not only does Vanilla smell enchanting, it can also help reduce nervous tension and agitation, and with the holidays coming up, well, sometimes we could all use a little help to keep our cool!

Cinnamon Bark

Autumn air is filled with the delicious aromas of baked treats, and with those cookies, pies, and pastries heating up, so is the irresistible scent of cinnamon. With Cinnamon Essential Oil, you can keep that smell with you – without all the cooking and calories! As a very strong oil, it is best to diffuse rather than apply topically. Combine 2 drops of Cinnamon with 4 drops of Vanilla Oleoresin and 2 drops of Orange Sweet to fill your home with a vibrant fall fragrance. You can also sprinkle a few drops on a dish filled with pine cones, to give a small room a cozy, sweet, and spicy smell!

Need a few more amazing fall-time essential oil suggestions? Try these oils in your favorite fall blends and DIY projects to bring out the cozy, inviting, and warm aromas of the season!

Plant Therapy Fall Blends

Need even more fall in your life? Then good thing it’s time for a new trio of seasonal blends! This year our fall blends include Harvest Moon, Pumpkin Pie, and Spiced Orange to enjoy all season – or year – long!

Please keep in mind that not all of the oils mentioned here are safe for young children to be exposed to. Clove Bud, Cinnamon Bark, Cinnamon Cassia, Nutmeg, and Ginger are not considered safe for children age 10 and under. Additionally, use these oils cautiously if applying topically, as they each have very high dilution rates for safety.

  • Love Plant Therapy. Their Lavender oil smells so good and seems stronger compared to others i have bought from other companies. Don’t have to use very much of plant therapy oil. It works great in diffuser and the lavender roll on is wonderful. Carry the roll on in my purse and when i feel stressed i use a little and it works great.

  • I purchased all three fall blends and have been rotating them in our living room diffuser. My son LOVES Pumpkin Pie! I love the Orange Spice blend. My neighbors keep asking what I’m baking! 🙂

  • Clove is my absolute favorite essential oil!! I mix with geranium for a little feminine smell, or with coffee EO for an amazing coffee house smell. I can not wait to blend clove with more! I’m just too stuck on what I like to try more.

    I also add clove to my skin blend essential oil. Has helped clear up breakouts quickly. I will never be without this oil

  • I have all of these except the vanilla oleoresin, which is on my wish list. I love the ORANGE SPICE as it is my all time favorite of the fall blends. I do like to add cinnamon to the diffuser for pick me ups and I just all around love spicy smells at the holidays. I highly recommend all of them.

  • I’ve already tried Orange Spice and I’m OBSESSED!!! I don’t want to diffuse anything else right now because it smells so wonderful! I’m definitely planning on buying the full set of fall oils, but now I’m going to have to add Clove Bud, Cinnamon Bark, and Vanilla Oleoresin to my list too.

    1. I hope you can, Cassandra! I have to be honest – I absolutely love Harvest Moon! Since it’s come out, I’ve been addicted 🙂 My house just smells like Harvest Moon all the time now!

  • I just ordered the pumpkin pie blend. I can’t wait to try it with the recipe that you shared for blending it with coffee essential oil to make a pumpkin latte.

  • Fall is my favorite season asmd I don’t have any of the oils listed above. Looks like I need to add to my list.

  • I have vanilla on my wish list. And will be getting Harvest Moon. I also think if we added coffee to the list we could make some very nice fall diffuser scents.

  • I can’t wait for my Harvest Moon to come. I’m pretty sure I will love it! I wish you guys come out with more than one kidsafe Seasonal blends tho!

    1. Hello! Our team of Certified Aromatherapists are always doing their best to make blends that are Kidsafe, however, there are just some oils (especially with fall-like scents) that just aren’t safe for children.

  • Fall is an amazing season for smells!! Nutmeg always reminds me of fall and everything to enjoy about it. Thanks for the list, definitely need to try.

  • After reading this article I looked up reviews for the harvest moon oil. It sounds clean and woodsy. I’m so excited to try this!

  • Fall is the best season. We often don’t get one here in MN. Often we go from hot and humid, right into cold and snowy. I have all the oils listed here so I create my own fall!

  • I just got my harvest moon in and already had to put it in my diffuser! I’m loving this oil so much. Pretty bummed I can’t use the other 2 since I have 2 younger kids, but I’m just glad you guys make at least 1 kid safe fall oil!

    1. Jennifer, we are so happy you’re enjoying the Harvest moon with your kiddos! We always try our best to make blends that are safe for the entire family, however, we cannot always accomplish that (especially with these fall like scents).

  • I am so sad that summer is coming to an end, but all of these fall oils make me happy for fall. I love that you let us know which ones are kidsafe because I never would have known which ones were!

    1. Mari, Essential Oil safety is one of our biggest concerns. We’re happy to help our customers and their little ones with labeling oils for safe use 🙂

  • Thank you so much for the reminder on which EO’s are great for including in fall blends! I can’t wait to add a few of these lovely oils to my diffuser & let the house smell like fall…thanks again!

  • So excited to try out these fall scents! Blending orange sweet with nutmeg or cinnamon will definitely make my house smell like fall.

  • I love fall. My favorite season. I’ve got essential oils like ginger and clove that I’ll be diffusing soon once the weather changes!

  • For me, clove bud and vanilla are like fall in a bottle! I absolutely love them and they remind me of Thanksgiving dinner. I’m amazed at how essential oil scents can instantly bring back memories.

  • Thank you for always putting a safety disclaimer for children as I have 3 kids 4 and under and always want to know what is safe to use around them!!! Not that I am rushing them to grow up, but I can’t wait until I can diffuse all these yummy fall oils!!

  • Fall is my favorite season. So excited to try the fall blends and use some of the other oils to make other great smelling fall blends/products!
