Make Your Own DIY Body Spray for Fall

I love fragrances. Unfortunately, it’s rare that I can shell out $40+ for a designer fragrance. Body sprays, on the other hand, are a budget friendly splurge. Body sprays tend to cost less than designer perfumes. Therefore I’m comfortable with using them everyday. There’s no need to ration out my favorite scents so they last longer. However, as I often have an arsenal of essential oils stashed in a cabinet for my natural skin care recipes, I really enjoy making my own seasonal DIY body sprays.

Benefits of Making Essential Oil Body Sprays

There are a number of benefits to making my own custom scented DIY body sprays with essential oils. Obviously I don’t need to worry about the potentially toxic ingredients hidden in proprietary perfume formulations made with fragrance oils. Instead, I’m able to create unique scents using plant-based essential oils.

Custom DIY body sprays with essential oils are also incredibly easy to make. Plus, with the holidays quickly approaching, I’m able to make multiple body sprays at once. One for me, and then several more to gift to friends and family. All at the same time and all in under 15 minutes.

I also love that I can use my favorite essential oil diffuser blends and recipes in my body spray recipes. So rather than hunting for essential oil blend recipes all over the internet, I’m able to work with what I have on hand at home.

How to Make A Pumpkin Spice Body Spray

While this easy pumpkin spice DIY body spray is perfect for fall, it also make a great DIY gift idea throughout the entire holiday season. Once you’ve made my pumpkin spice scented body spray, be sure to try it with other essential oil blends as well. It also works great with your favorite knock off designer fragrance oils!

Crafting Fall Soaps with Essential Oils 

Fall is more than just pumpkin spice. So if you’re looking for creative ways to scent your fall soaps, then you’ve come to the right place.

Essential Oil Safety Tips

There are a number of fall essential oil blends for soaps that you can use in your homemade soap recipes for a natural fragrance. However, it’s important to keep in mind that some essential oils, while they may smell amazing, aren’t always skin friendly.

Cinnamon bark essential oil, for example, is not skin safe. It causes skin irritation and therefore should not be used homemade soaps or skin care recipes. On the other hand, cinnamon leaf essential oil, while also an irritant can be used as a small percentage of your recipes when properly diluted – sans those sensitive parts and mucous membranes. However, I know that I am allergic to cinnamon essential oil. Even in small concentrations as part of a fragrance oil, it makes my skin red, irritated and itchy when used in soaps. So it’s important to perform a patch test on skin prior to using oils that are known irritants.

It may be that you choose to avoid using cinnamon leaf essential oil in order to avoid possible skin sensitivities when making soaps for your family. Therefore I’ve chosen to include several fall essential oil blends for soaps that omit cinnamon essential oil entirely.

There’s so much to learn about essential oils. Not only are some essential oils, such as cinnamon, known skin irritants, many are also not safe to use when pregnant. While other essential oils should not be used on children, are or if you have certain medical conditions. Certain essential oils, including most citrus oils, can also be phototoxic. Therefore care should be taken to cover skin and use sun protection when spending time outdoors. Pets can also be affected by essential oils being diffused in your home. So follow up with your vet on which essential oils are not pet safe to avoid causing harm to your pets. You also should never leave your pets in a closed room with an essential oil diffuser

Where to Learn More

If you aren’t sure whether an essential oil is a skin irritant or not – unfortunately many of the scents for fall have the potential to be – you can check out the essential oil profile for each of the essential oils in these fall essential oil blends for soaps at Mountain Rose Herbs to learn more. You can also discover more tips for safely using essential oils here as well as an essential oil dilution chart here.

I’m so excited to use my own custom fall essential oil blends for soaps in upcoming recipes. Any one of these essential oil blends is the perfect match for my fall soap recipe with cocoa butter. So pick your favorite to customize the perfect homemade soaps for your family this fall! Or, if buying multiple essential oils is outside of your reach financially at this time, try out my fall soap recipe with your favorite seasonal, fall fragrance oil instead.  

Fall essential oil blends for soaps. Ready to bask in your favorite fall scents as part of your morning bath routine? Following are a number of my favorite fall essential oil blends for soaps. They can be used in both cold process soap recipes as well as melt and pour soap recipes and hot process soap. The best essential oil recipe blends for your soap making projects this autumn.

Fall Essential Oil Blends for Soaps

Ready to bask in your favorite fall scents as part of your morning bath routine? Following are a number of my favorite fall essential oil blends for soaps. They can be used in both cold process soap recipes as well as melt and pour soap recipes and hot process soap.

As these fall essential oil blends for soaps contain essential oils that can irritate skin if not properly diluted, I don’t recommend using more than .5% (or a half percent) in your soap formulations for those containing a high percentage of spice essential oils such as cinnamon and clove. However you can increase the amount up to 2% maximum for fall essential oil blends that either omit those essential oils or that are used in lower concentrations in a scent blend. Essential oils such as patchouli, lavender and frankincense have higher usage rates as they are generally skin safe and not irritating.

Additionally, if you’re looking to get more bang for your buck scent wise, you may find you can use a smaller percentage of fall essential oil blends in melt and pour soap recipes as well as hot process soaps. Alternately, you can also pop your soaps in the fridge, if you are making cold process soap, to prevent gel phase. (You can learn more about the gel phase in soap making at Lovin’ Soap here.)

For soap making, I recommend using the Lavender 40-42 essential oil as it is standardized oil used in the perfume and fragrance industry. Primarily used for soap and candle making, it’s important to note that lavender 40-42 is not intended for therapeutic use.

Formulating a Fall Soap Recipe

As the seasons change from summer to fall, the air outside becomes drier and cooler. Our skin feels the environmental effects from this change and as a result it can also feel dry or itchy. Therefore you may find you need to switch up a number of your skin care products to account for this. I always find that I need to make a simple soap swap to negate the effects of the changing seasons. My easy fall soap recipe is perfectly suited for this time of year. It’s formulated so it won’t strip skin of the beneficial oils your skin needs to look and feel healthy as we make the transition from hot summer weather into the fall season.

My fall soap recipe is easy to make. It includes just four soap making fats – castor oil, coconut oil, cocoa butter and pomace olive oil. Perfect for both body and facial skin care, this homemade soap recipe contains a whopping 25% cocoa butter to condition skin in addition to 45% olive oil. While this fall soap does contain a high percentage of olive oil, you’ll find that the higher percentage of cocoa butter not only conditions skin, it also helps the bar harden faster. Thereby reducing the long cure that often comes with Castile and Bastille soap recipes.

Adding Fall Essential Oil Blends to Your Soaps

To scent your soaps, you can make up a master batch of your chosen fall essential oil blends for soaps above. Then add your essential oil blend to your soap batter at a light trace. Alternately you can also substitute the fall essential oil blend with a fragrance oil of your choice. Typically fragrance oils have a usage rate of around 5% for homemade soaps. However, some fragrance oils have a lower usage rate so be sure to refer to manufacturer guidelines when determining the amount of fragrance you need for your fall soap recipes.

You should also be aware that some essential oils, such as black pepper, may increase trace. Typically, if I know an essential oil will hasten trace times, I add it to the oils prior to mixing the soap making oils with the lye. However, should your soap seize on you, don’t give it. As it heats up it will go into gel phase and your fall soap batter will start to look translucent. At this points you’ll be able to remix the soap batter as you would if you were making hot process soap. Once the soap looks a bit like mashed potatoes, it’s ready to go into the mold.

Essential Oil Fall Soap Recipe

© Rebecca D. Dillon

Ingredients for Fall Soap Embeds:

.8 oz. castor oil (10%)
1.6 oz. coconut oil (20%)
2.6 oz. cocoa butter (25%)
3.6 oz. pomace olive oil (45%)

2.85 fl. oz. distilled water (36% of oil weight)
1.05 oz. sodium hydroxide/lye (8% superfat)

.05 oz. fall essential oil blend, of choice (about .5%)
1/2 teaspoon apple green moss mica, or desired color
1/2 teaspoon copper sparkle mica, or desired color

Ingredients for Fall Soap Loaf:

2.4 oz. castor oil (10%)
4.8 oz. coconut oil (20%)
6 oz. cocoa butter (25%)
10.8 oz. pomace olive oil (45%)

7.9 fl. oz. distilled water (33% of oil weight)
3.25 oz. sodium hydroxide/lye (6% superfat)

.15 oz. fall essential oil blend, of choice (about .5%)
1 Tablespoon turmeric powder, or desired mica color
additional mica to swirl, if desired in color of choice

Autumn Leaf Soap Embeds for Autumn Harvest Soap

Fall Essential Oil Soap Making Notes:

If you’d like to incorporate soap embeds into your fall soap loaf, you will need to make these ahead of time. As the silicone leaf soap mold I chose had lots of smaller nooks and crannies, I did not apply a water discount to the recipe for embeds. However, this did mean I had to freeze my soap embeds the next day for about 3-4 hours to get them to come out of the mold cleanly.

I used this leaf soap mold for the embeds and this silicone loaf mold for the soap loaf. However, you can adjust this fall soap recipe to suit any size mold of your choosing. I also used a pumpkin shaped mold (and cut off the jack-o-lantern faces) to see what pumpkins inside the loaf would look like for two of my fall soap bars.

The embed soap recipe also has a higher superfat. Therefore it is soft enough that you can work with it like playdough to create custom shapes for soap embeds as desired. There is more than enough leftover soap to play with. Alternately, you can always use the same fall soap loaf recipe for both the embeds and the loaf. 

To make both the fall leaf soap embeds, as well as the fall soap loaf scented with your favorite of the fall essential oil blends, you need to follow basic cold process soap making directions. Simply make the soap embeds first, per the cold process soap making instructions below. Then, once the embeds have hardened, you are ready to make the soap loaf. You can find more detailed cold process soap making directions here to further guide you on your soap making journey.

You need to follow all safety precautions when making cold process soap from scratch. This includes using heat safe containers and non-aluminum containers and utensils. Protective clothing and eyewear is also highly recommended.

Autumn Leaf Soaps for Natural Fall Skin Care.

Fall Soap Making Instructions:

Now let’s make a loaf of homemade falls soaps with your favorite fall essential oils blends for soaps!

Begin by measuring out the water called for in the soap recipe. Pour into a heat safe container. Then use a digital scale to weigh out the lye into a separate container. Carefully pour the lye into the water in a well ventilated area. Then mix well until all the lye has dissolved and set aside. (This step can emit fumes. Therefore I recommend using an exhaust fan. Alternately, you can mix the lye into the water outdoors.)

Next, weigh out all the soap making oils and butters. This includes the cocoa butter, coconut oil, castor oil and pomace olive olive. Combine the carrier oils and cocoa butter in a heat safe container. Then melt the ingredients on the stove, in a crockpot or at reduced power in a microwave. Once melted, remove the melted oils and cocoa butter from the heat source and set aside.

While the lye-water and soapmaking oils cool, weigh out the the fall essential oil blend you’ve chosen for your soaps into a glass measuring cup. (You should prepare a master batch of your favorite fall essential oil blends for soaps prior to starting the soap making process.)

Then measure out the mica powder or other cold process soap colorant of your choice into a small dish or container separate from the essential oil blend.

Once both the lye-water and soap making oils reach about 85°F-90°F, you’re ready to continue making my fall soap recipe.

For the soap embeds.

Mix the lye water and soap making oils together, using an immersion blender, until the soap batter reaches a light trace. Then pour half of the soap batter into another heat safe container. Add the green mica powder to one container and the copper mica to the other. Then mix separately and pour into your mold(s.)

For the soap loaf.

Start by adding the soap colorant (and the essential oil blend if desired) to the melted soap making oils and cocoa butter. Mix briefly with an immersion blender to distribute the additives throughout the oil mixture.

Follow with the lye-water. Then mix until you achieve a light trace.

Add the fall essential oil blend to the soap batter if you did not add it in previous step. Then continue mixing the soap batter until you reach a medium to heavy trace. (I overmixed my soap batter to be sure I did not get a false trace as my fall soap recipe calls for a high percentage of cocoa butter.)

Wet soap in loaf mold. Fall soap recipe made using the cold process soap making method.

Pour a small layer of soap into the bottom of the loaf mold, then add any embeds you’d like to appear inside your fall soap loaf. Then pour the rest of the soap batter into the loaf mold. Use a fork or other utensil to add designs to the top of the soap loaf as desired. Then place the remaining soap embeds onto the top of the soap loaf. Set aside.

Unmolded fall soap loaf. A cold process soap recipe for natural fall skin care with leaf soap embeds.

You should be able to unmold your soaps after 24 to 48 hours. Once unmolded, cut the loaf into slices as desired. Then allow your fall soap bars to cure in a cool, dry location for four to six weeks. After which, you can wrap and label your soaps for personal use or to give as seasonal fall soap gifts.

If you’d like to sell the homemade soaps you create from my fall soap recipe, you need to follow good manufacturing practices (GMP) when making your homemade soaps. The book, Good Manufacturing Practices for Soap and Cosmetic Handcrafters by Marie Gale, is a valuable resource if you’re just getting started making your own homemade soaps, skin care products and cosmetics.

In addition to GMP, you also need to follow FDA guidelines for labeling your homemade soaps. If you’re unsure about the rules and regulations regarding labeling cosmetics, the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English by Marie Gale, spells out everything you need to know to legally label your products in the United States.

Sugar is evil, but… Dammit. Brownies. There’s no harm, no foul indulging in a treat from time to time. And brownies are my jam. With the fall harvest in sight and pumpkins popping up everywhere, it’s hard to resist whipping up these pumpkin cheesecake brownies!

Pumpkin Cheesecake Brownies: The Perfect Fall Dessert

I’ll admit that I really don’t eat desserts very often. I cut out most sugar from my diet some time back. After learning that sugar causes inflammation, the last thing I wanted to do was make my body hate me more than it already does. While the fibromyalgia is mostly under control these days, there’s this mid-life hell called perimenopause. As it slowly causes an evolution that requires an equivalent of 1980s mom jeans, I’ve really tried to avoid empty calories. Meaning desserts. Two giant servings of macaroni and cheese. 500 calorie coffees from Starbucks. An entire pint of Ben & Jerry’s.

Unfortunately my backside is insisting on repositioning itself on the other side of my body. Prominently in the middle where it’s impossible to hide. The only plus is that, as my chin has started slink down from my cheeks, some of it seems to have given my chest a bit of extra abundance. I won’t even go into the bloating. Still, I’m not a complete masochist. There are days when self care absolutely requires something to satisfy my sweet tooth. Brownies are my go to. While I prefer them with icing so they look more like a birthday cake than a pan of brownies, swirling in cheesecake is actually crazy delish and doesn’t make my teeth ache thinking about it.

These pumpkin cheesecake brownies are easier to make than you might imagine. Start with a box of your favorite brownie mix (I opt for chewy and extra fudgy) and throw in some canned pumpkin, cream cheese and everyone’s fall favorite – pumpkin spice! Then top it all off with some pecan streusel and you’ve got yourself a dessert worthy of the season!

A Better Pumpkin Spice Latte

Apparently pumpkin spice season comes earlier every year. Starbucks, in fact, announced that their pumpkin spice latte will be released early this year – on August 28th. While there’s a certain celebrity (hey, Martha!) who thinks pumpkin spice is basic, I disagree. Even so, we like what we like, and I for one, refused to be shamed for treating myself to a classic fall flavor.

However, if I’m being totally honest, I just don’t like Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte. The flavoring is off and tastes artificial. Which, for me, ruins the whole experience. Therefore, I came up with my own pumpkin spice latte recipe. And believe it or not, it’s literally just 2-ingredients if you don’t count the water to brew the coffee.

I’ve been trying to cut back on dairy as my eczema had been coming back more recently. I’d actually given up milk all together more than a few years ago. If not for butter and cheese, I could easily have cut it from my diet entirely. But for obvious reasons – cheese if F-ING DELICIOUS – I found that not drinking milk did keep the eczema at bay. I even learned to take my coffee black. When I wanted to indulge in a flavored coffee, however, drinking it black leaves something to be desired. So I’ve had my eye out for a good non-dairy coffee creamer to replace my regular half and half for some time.

A vegan latte packed with healthy fats from coconut and almonds, this pumpkin spice latte makes a quick and easy breakfast swap whether you're running behind from back to school or just feeling run down.

The first dairy free latte I tried making was a caramel and coconut cream latte. I combined Archer Farms Buttery Caramel Coffee with Califia Farms Vanilla Almondmilk Creamer. It’s made with real almond and coconut cream. This non-dairy creamer is also non-GMO, kosher, vegan, gluten-free, soy-free and carrageenan-free. It’s also crazy delicious and tastes SO much better than butter coffee, which I just couldn’t wrap my taste buds around.

Luckily, the simple combination of almond milk, can sugar, coconut cream and vanilla extract goes well with so many different bakery inspired and caramel flavored coffees. It also tastes great with pumpkin spice flavored coffees! Thus, a simple combination of your favorite, fresh brewed pumpkin spice coffee combined with vanilla almondmilk creamer makes a pumpkin spice latte that is to die for!

I’ve started catching this non-dairy creamer on sale at Target and buying them two at a time because it’s just that good! It’s seriously my favorite food discovery of the year. Which I guess seems sad – or basic maybe? – but I’ve been trying a lot of everything since my mid-thirties. There’s little I haven’t tried at least once at this point.

If you’re ready to jump on this fall pumpkin spice latte train, then let’s get rolling!

For the love of pumpkin spice.

OMG. Summer has just dragged on forever this year. But basic or not, I’m so ready for pumpkin spice season! My boyfriend, on the other hand, is just psyched it’s finally football season again. While he’s cheering on the Jacksonville Jaguars, you can find me sneaking across the street for a pumpkin spice latte at our local Starbucks.

I just can’t resist the warm, spicy taste of pumpkin spice – or the fragrant scent! So when I found out that Grove Collaborative now has Mrs. Meyer’s cleaning products in their new fall scents, I was instantly sold. Mrs. Meyer’s has three great scents for fall – mum, apple cider and pumpkin.

If you aren’t already a Grove customer, you can score a free trio of Mrs. Meyer’s cleaning products in your scent of choice. You’ll also get a replaceable head dish brush, free shipping and a free VIP trial when you make your first $20 purchase. You have to hurry, though, as this is a super limited time offer.

I’m a VIP member at Grove and I love that I can get free shipping AND a free gift with every order (with a minimum purchase.) Last month I scored a FREE Grove Collaborative bamboo prep board.

I’ve also gotten completely hooked on their European dish cloth set. These durable and absorbent sponge cloths are perfect for messes – and they helped my boyfriend give up his paper towel habit. Because these sponges are reusable, you simply pop them into the dishwasher to easily disinfect and clean them. If you’ve been working toward a zero waste lifestyle that reduces your carbon footprint, these dish cloths are a must!

Now if I can just break Greg of his Keurig coffee and convert him over to my favorite, lower acidity cold brew.

Once you’ve scored your free cleaning kit from Grove, be sure to check out these great tips for preparing your home for fall. Plus be sure to try one or more of my favorite pumpkin spice skin care and beauty recipes at the end of this post.

Fall homemaking & cleaning tips.

1. I’m not usually a baker (that’s more of my roomie’s expertise) but something about pumpkin spice season always inspires me to whip up an apple pie or a batch of pumpkin muffins. When that happens, Mrs. Meyer’s dish soap and the Grove replaceable head dish brush are perfect for a quick cleanup! Plus, they make a pretty sink-side display.

2. A fresh towel is such an underrated way to add some seasonal vibes to your kitchen. Grove’s heirloom red kitchen towel adds a pop of fall color and can handle the toughest messes.

Whether we’re hosting a casual cookout or a football party, fall is my favorite time of year to entertain. My roommate and I always make sure the guest bathroom is stocked with fluffy hand towels, plenty of toilet paper, and of course a seasonal hand soap. I receive so many compliments on Mrs. Meyer’s fall fragrances (and guests always want to know where I got them since our local stores sell out so quickly!)

3. Brisk fall days are perfect for tackling outdoor tasks and preparing your home for winter. Mrs. Meyer’s multi-surface is the only cleaner you need for wiping down patio furniture, light fixtures, and metal railings. Plus, the bold scents give you a boost of energy while you’re cleaning!

4. As the nights get cooler, it’s time to pull out your cozy fall bedding. To make your favorite blanket even softer and cozier, add a few drops of Grove’s lavender essential oil to Grove’s wool dryer balls before you toss them in the dryer!

My roommate, Bambi, wasn’t really sure about the dryer balls when I first purchased them, but now she’s hooked. Not only does it make our laundry softer, it also reduces static and decreases drying time so we can save energy.

5. Switching over your closet? Before you store your summer clothes, give them a good wash with Method laundry detergent so they’re fresh for next season.

I love using Method’s 4x concentrated laundry detergent. I bought the ginger mango fragrance two months ago and still have a ton of detergent left. I love the scent. However I really love that it doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin. Not only is this detergent HE friendly – I use it at my boyfriend’s apartment too – the bottle is designed so the cap doesn’t get all gummy from measuring out the amount I need.

6. Just like I reach for different clothes once the weather gets cooler, I also reach for different skincare products. I can’t live without Grove’s nourishing coconut skin superfood — it can be used as a face and body moisturizer, cuticle cream, and even eye makeup remover!

7. The start of fall also means the start of cold and flu season! To keep the sniffles at bay, I always keep a Grove hydrating hand sanitizer spray in my purse or travel bag. (This stuff is AMAZING!)

8. Can you believe stores are already putting out Halloween decor? This year, I’m aiming for zero-waste with natural decor like pinecones, potted mums, and gourds. They look festive and don’t take up that much needed storage space!

9. Tip to save on your fall product needs: Once you’ve submitted your Grove order, you will be signed up for the free 60 day VIP trial. For 60 days, save even more with free shipping, free gifts, price matching, exclusive sales and personal service. What are you waiting for? Order today!
