Fall Scents To Make Your Home Smell Wonderfully Seasonal

Here are a few simple ways to make your home smell like fall;

Take to the Kitchen

One of the simplest (and fastest) ways to make your home smell amazing is to simmer a pot full of aromatics on your stovetop.

To instantly add a delicious fall scent to your house, add items like apple slices, orange peel, cinnamon sticks, and cloves to the pot. Then, bring the water to a simmer any time you need a scent boost throughout your home.

Homemade Potpourri

Potpourri is a tried and true scent staple, and it’s very simple to make your own scents. Just pair your favorite dried fruits, nuts, and spices together in a pretty bowl, and you’ll instantly have a decorative accent that adds a lovely fall scent to the room.

Use Pinecones

Pinecones are a great way to decorate your home during the fall season, but did you know they can also make your home smell great? Add a little seasonal essential oil (like orange or cinnamon) to your pinecones before setting them out as decorations to make your house smell like fall day after day.

Natural Decorations

Using seasonal decorations throughout your home this fall is a great way to make your house smell wonderful, too.

Create a wreath with pretty dried flowers and herbs or decorate with a garland of dried fruits and spices to instantly add a pretty decorative element and fall smells to any room of your house.

Make Your Own Sachets

Fragrant sachets are a great way to add fall scents to your home – and they’re so simple to make. Just sew a couple of fabric scraps together to form a pouch and fill it with dried herbs, like lavender, or more woodsy scents like balsam or cedar. These pouches are easy to make and can be hidden throughout your home to instantly add fall scents to every room.

Start Baking

There’s no better way to make your home smell amazing is to bake something yummy. Baked apples with a sprinkling of cinnamon are a great way to create a wonderful seasonal scent throughout your whole home and to have something delicious to eat later. What a great combination!
