Oh, the Smells of Autumn!

| by , under Recipes

As the falling leaves create a richly colored blanket in the park, and the cooler temperatures invite us to bring out that favorite sweater, nothing quite helps to transition to autumn like breathing in the warm, spicy smells of the season.  At The Woodhouse, it is our desire to help you create a cozy home, full of delicious, soothing smells, while still maintaining a standard of clean air ‘purity’ for your loved ones.  We understand the healthful benefits of pure essential oils, and recommend that you take time learn more about the amazing uses, as well as the safety precautions, with each of the oils that you use. 

For the fall, blends that include both a citrus oil and a spice oil tend to be the most favored.  Start with your favorite citrus oil (Lemon, Lime, Sweet Orange, Grapefruit, etc.) and add in a few drops of a spice oil (Ginger, Cinnamon, Patchouli, Clove, Myrrh, etc.).  Remember that spice oils tends to be quite strong, and should be blended with a milder oil to create a soothing, not irritating, scent in your home.

Have fun creating blends that are perfect for your home and family!  Don’t be afraid to experiment with new oils as you seek to create that warm, delicious aroma in your home this season.  And let us know your favorite blends!
