Fall might be the best season of the year. We’ve already passed the sweltering heat of the summer, which can get old after a while. And we’re not yet to the point that we’re freezing through the winter and never going outside. The weather is nice and comfortable, and everything inside your home feels welcoming and cozy. What’s not to love about that? If you want to complete the ambiance, all you need now (apart from some great warm lighting) is the scent. There are probably a lot of smells that remind you of fall, and you can easily incorporate those scents into your home. Wondering how? Here are the easy DIY fall scents for your home that you should try this season!
Autumn Simmer Pot
If you’ve never tried a simmer pot before, this is your opportunity to give it a shot. These pots make your home smell incredible, so you have to try it out. You’re going to fill a big pot of water and bring it to a boil. Then you add in some stuff that’s going to smell amazing when it’s cooked. This could include apples, orange slices, cinnamon sticks, vanilla, or anything else that you think might smell incredible. Keep the heat on low and simmer all this stuff until your home smells fantastic.
Nice Fall Candles
Perhaps the easiest way to get that remarkable fall scent is by buying some fall-scented candles. There are all kinds of scents out there that will likely remind you of fall. You’ve got cinnamon sugar candles, pumpkin spice candles, and a ton of sweet smells that will make it seem like you have something cooking in the oven. Pick out your favorites, and don’t be afraid to pick up several at a time, so you know your home will smell terrific all season long.
