Disclaimer: Please be mindful of any allergies or sensitives you and your family or guests may have before attempting to make any of these items. You can skip adding the item or find a replacement that works for you instead. I chose coconut oil as my base as it’s easy to store as it solidifies and melts with ease.
Note: I did get my inspiration for these scents from Pinterest. So, you guys could totally check Pinterest for more ideas on creating scents for your home and customizing them for your satisfaction as I have.
You can also make adjustments to measurements as needed if you want to make more of these scents. I use minimum amounts for each of these scents as I get bored with fragrance easily and like to switch them out frequently.
Scent #1: Pumpkin spice Latte (My own creation)
It wouldn’t be a fall scent if we didn’t have pumpkin spice as one of our delicious scents. I love a good pumpkin spice latte so I thought it would be fun to recreate the smell as one of my fall home scents!
What you’ll need:
*Pumpkin pie spice (you could also just use nutmeg, cardamom, and cloves in place)
* Glass Jar or Ceramic Dish (You can also use and old candle jar)
*Paper towel or cloth
1.Heat 2-3 Tablespoons of coconut oil until warmed through and melted on medium low heat.
2. Once warmed through add 2 Teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1 tablespoon of coffee grounds, 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract, and blend until fragrant.
3. Strain oil over paper towel or cloth into of choice. When ready to use place into oil warmer. Following instructions on how to safely do so.
*I just place into oil holding compartment. Add my lit tea light in compartment underneath. Bam beautiful scent being released into the air.
Caution: *Place in desired area of the home. Making sure to keep out of reach of children and animals to prevent accidents.
Scent #2: Apple Streusel (My own creation)
One of my favorite scents ever is anything apple and cinnamon related. It’s so sweet and yummy. My kids love it too! What you’ll need:
Glass Container/ Ceramic Dish / or Old candle jar
Paper towel or cloth
(Option: Use water instead of oil and boil instead. Just leave boiling contents out of reach of children and discard when finish.)
1. Heat 2 cinnamon sticks and 1 Tablespoon of cloves until toasted and fragrant on medium low heat. Add 3 Tablespoons of coconut oil to the pan and melt gently.
2.Cut Apple into pieces and add to pan with 1 Teaspoon of each: vanilla and almond extracts. Heat through until all scents are well combined releasing a delicious aroma. Stirring and adjusting heat often so it doesn’t burn.
3. Put paper towel or cloth into strainer to catch apple pieces, cloves, and cinnamon sticks. Poor mixture over sifter allowing oil to land in container. Discard the contents of paper towel or cloth. Store until ready to use.
Scent 3: Savory Delight
What you’ll need:
1 Lemon or Lemon Extract
Glass jar or ceramic dish
Paper Towel or cloth
1. Heat pan with 3 sprigs of rosemary a few snips if Thyme until fragrant. In the meantime zest one lemon. (You can use a few drops of lemon extract as an option) .
2. Add zest to pan with herbs. Add 2-3 Tablespoons of oil to pan heating through just until scent is absorbed. Make sure to stir and adjust heat so it doesn’t burn. I recommend a medium low setting.
3. Place container under strainer. Add paper towel or cloth to strainer. Poor contents into strainer allowing all scented oil to land in container.
4. Store until ready to use.
(Similar to the William Sonoma scent I just add the thyme to make it smell more woodsy.)
If you would prefer to make these scents into wax cubes or candles you would just have to adjust your measurements.
Follow the instructions provided on packaging for properly melting and handling wax. Add scent into wax (just as you would the essential oil) as directed on packaging. Complete making candle formation or wax cube formation as directed.
Use candle or wax melts safely as specified.
Ta-da! Beautiful and affordable fall home scents for you and your loved ones to enjoy. You could even use these as gifts for the holidays coming up!
