How to Make Your Home Smell Like Fall

Embracing each new season brings a unique charm, and Fall is a cozy and delightful season filled with pumpkin flavors and golden leaves. Adding to its allure are the warm and inviting scents that define autumn. If you're eager to infuse your home with these comforting aromas, here are a few creative ways to do so.

Homemade Candles

One great way to spend a leisurely Sunday is by crafting homemade candles. You can choose to make them as fancy or as simple as you like, using custom molds to create fun shapes or sticking with classic designs. Add your favorite autumn scents, whether through essential oils, fresh ingredients, or a combination of both. Consider incorporating items like cinnamon sticks and dried oranges for a beautiful and fragrant touch.

Simmering Pot

To greet your guests with deliciously warm autumn scents or simply to enjoy it all by yourself, prepare a simmering pot. If you are planning for guests, put your simmering pot on the stove about an hour before their arrival. Simply simmer a pot of water on the stove with your chosen aromatic ingredients. You can leave it simmering throughout the evening, replenishing with water as needed. A delightful combination might include a clove of nutmeg, fresh ginger, and a couple of cinnamon sticks.

Carpet Uplift

Another method to fill your home with comforting fall fragrances is by infusing them into your carpets. Mix vanilla, orange, or cinnamon with half a cup of baking soda. Sprinkle this mixture onto your carpets, let it sit for a few moments, and then vacuum it up. Your home will be adorned with the inviting scents of autumn and your carpets will be refreshed.

And there you have it! A few simple ways you can fill your homes with the warm and inviting scents of Fall. Try one, or two, or all three!
