Reed diffusers are very pretty and are great for home decoration and air fresheners but it is no secret that they could be pricey for some. Reed diffusers are all the rage right now because they are safe and easy to use without the need for flame, batteries, or wire for plugs compared to candles and humidifiers. Reed diffusers are also perfect for those who easily get dizzy with strong aromas and prefer subtle scents for their home. Good news is, making your own reed diffuser with Fall scents or any scent for all occasions is very easy and simple. Plus, all the materials you need are easily sourced and are probably readily available to you. 

What you need:

Ceramic or glass vase
Baby oil or almond oil
Rattan reed diffuser sticks
Fall-scented essential oil of your choice


Pour in  ½ cup of baby oil or almond oil and 40 to 60 drops of essential oil into your flower vase. Shake gently until they are thoroughly mixed. Stick in about 6 to 7 reed diffuser sticks depending on how wide the size of your vase is. Let the sticks absorb the oils and enjoy your personalized Fall-themed reed diffuser scented room. 

You may do this DIY to achieve any scent that you want without paying for the hefty price of reed diffusers sold commercially.

Make A Simmer Pot

Boiling a simmer pot is easy, customizable, natural, and cheap. That is why it is one of the best methods to make your home smell like Fall this season. Simmering a pot for all occasions and season has been our family tradition that has been passed down from generation to generation. Plus, It’s easy as its name. You literally just need to boil some spices in water and simmer for the aroma to fill  your home. There are many spices to choose from for a Fall scented home. 

These are the most common and the most easily sourced ingredients: 

Cinnamon Sticks
Orange Peels
Lemon Peels
Star Anise
Pine Needles
A few drops of essential oil


How to do it: 

Fill a large pot with water and add in your spices, turn on the fire and bring it to a boil. Once the water starts to boil, lower fire and allow your concoction to simmer and fill your home with the wonderful scents of Fall. Remember to be mindful of the time so as not to evaporate all the water and burn your spices. You may also use a slow cooker for this trick.

You do not need to spend tons of money and hire the service of professional cleaners (unless you wanted to) and keep the cleaning simple by doing the basic like mopping the floor, vacuuming, throwing the trash especially kitchen waste, wiping surfaces that needs to be rid of dirt, and opening your windows to let the morning sun in and also some fresh air.
