DIY Autumn-Scented Products for Your Home

Fall Candles

Making your own candles is a fun hobby, plus you get to control exactly what goes in there and can avoid the cloying scent of some commercial brands.

Combine scents any way you want or just stick to one per candle, you're in charge!

Arrange the candles liberally in your sitting room or bedroom, and you could even make some as gifts to get a head start on Christmas gifting.

They make the perfect gift for your Thanksgiving host too!

To make the candles, melt a good base such as beeswax or soy beads or flakes.

Then you add a metal base with wick to go through the centre of the candle.

If you are just starting, this candle making kit is great value and has everything you need.

Add scents such as vanilla, clove, ginger, cinnamon and experiment with different combinations to get one you love.

Or make single scent candles then group them together on a tray to combine the scents.

The beauty of making your own candles is having complete control over the scents you finish up with.

DIY Fall Room Sprays

Autumn is the perfect season to spend some time mixing essential oils to make room spray.

Adding the scent of fall to your home with a room spray can add the scent of baking, a walk in the woods, pumpkin spice or apple pie, making your home full of autumn with minimal effort.

Simply mix your favourite essential oils then add to distilled water in a spray bottle to make room scent.

Here are some of our favourite fall room spray scents and blends:


Vanilla is perfect at most of times of year, but in autumn it is redolent of cosy kitchen time baking and creating.

Add a drop or two of different essential oils such as cinnamon, clove, apple or orange to mix up your baking scent.

Fall Harvest

For a classic autumn scent, combine clove and cassia essential oils with a little witch hazel.

Then add vanilla to sweeten or tangerine or orange oil to make the blend more citrussy.


This combination of woody scents smells like walking through a forest in November.

Mix white fir, eucalyptus and orange essential oils till you get just the right combination.


Rather than buying a ready-made pumpkin spice blend, mix your own.

Essential oils like cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, clove, vanilla and orange can be combined to make the perfect pumpkin scent for your taste.
