The power of scent to elicit powerful memories and emotions is well documented, and autumn is a virtual treasure trove when it comes to evocative aromas. So why not take your spa guests on a nostalgic journey with potent notes of these popular favorites? Whether your vehicle is a candle, diffuser, eye or neck pillow, lotion or simply a few drops of essential oil squeezed onto a hot towel, seasonal aromatherapy is sure to soothe even your most world-weary clients.

Consider this partial list of warming and spicy fall-inspired options:

  • Allspice
  • Anise
  • Cardamom
  • Cinnamon
  • Clove bud
  • Coffee
  • Ginger
  • Nutmeg
  • Patchouli
  • Sage
  • Sandalwood
  • Vanilla

According to the experts at AromaWeb, you can create some exquisite blends by combining spice oils with citrus oils such as sweet orange, bergamot, lemon or grapefruit. For instance, combining 10 drops of sweet orange with 4 drops of ginger and 6 drops of patchouli produces a intoxicating blend that both delight and mystify clients.
