Candle-Free Ways to Make Your Home Smell Like Fall

  • Dried Flowers: One of the easiest ways to make your home smell like fall is to add vases of dried flowers, like Lavender and eucalyptus. Plus, they look visually appealing, which symbolizes the fall season. Dried flowers are also cost-effective, and their scent can last much longer compared to scented candles.
  • Essential Oils: Create relaxing and positive energy in your home with essential oils. There are plenty of choices you can choose from, and you can combine different essential oils to create your signature fall scent. Isn’t that fun? Use an aromatic diffuser to make your whole space smell like cinnamon and oranges.
  • Flower Water: Freshen up your home with just a few spritzes of flower water. Flower water is made of rose water and perfumed petals or herbs. Check out Michal Kowalski from Blooming Haus for the tutorial.
  • Fresh Flowers: One of the candle-free ways to make your home smell like fall is to add vases of fresh flowers, like geraniums. You can also try adding pots of Oregano, Basil, Mint, and Eucalyptus to make your home, specifically your kitchen smell wonderfully fragrant.
