As the temperatures begin to drop, it’s time to start preparing your home for the fall and winter seasons. The first step? Making it smell like fall! Luckily, you don’t have to burn an autumn-scented candle or bake a pumpkin pie to get that crisp scent wafting throughout your space — here are five easy ways you can make your home smell like fall without spending an arm and a leg on special fall cleaning products.
Buy a Diffuser
A way to make your home smell like fall is by using a diffuser. This will help you enjoy the holiday smells without the additives. Plus, there are many diffusers that you can use, such as a wax warmer or oil burner. You can also buy a bundle of scented candles and put them around your home, or invest in different scents of essential oils that you can use with a reed diffuser.
Use Scented Candles
Pick your favorite fall scents and light a candle in the room you want it in.
Place cinnamon sticks, cloves, or orange peel on a baking sheet and place it in the oven at 250 degrees Fahrenheit for thirty minutes before you turn it off to let the house smell like fall when it’s still warm.
Light up some incense near an open window so you can smell that fall touch up without having an open flame.
Use Essential Oils
Use the following essential oils for a holiday smell: eucalyptus, clove, cinnamon, orange peel. Combine these in a diffuser or light them on fire to fill your home with their scent. You can also use other scents like nutmeg and vanilla extract by cooking them in an oven with butter and brown sugar. Lastly, you can put potpourri that includes fall items like dried leaves and pine cones around your home. All these will give your house a great fall touch up!
Turn On Your Kitchen Stove
