The Art Of Essential Oil Blending

image

It’s fun to create your own essential oil perfume which smells good and supports your emotional and physical needs.

Here are a few guidelines to follow. I like to keep the number of oils I use to three maybe four. This allows for each essential oils’ healing properties to come through.

Essential Oils entice us with their aromas and these are characterised as notes.

Base Notes

These are the underlying scents that will come through after a few minutes of applying the blend and will linger longer than the lighter scents.

They are your rich, warming earthy oils such as Frankincense, Vetiver, Vanilla.

Middle Notes

These are also called the heart notes and constitute the main body of the blend. They harmonise and balance out the combination of oils.

In this range we find Lavender, Geranium, Fir, Cypress, Peppermint, Thyme.

Some oils such as Ylang Ylang and Clary Sage are middle to base notes.

Top Notes

These are the scents that we notice first and will diffuse quickly. They are light, uplifting and add harmony to the blend.

In the top note range we have the citrus oils such as Wild Orange, Bergamot, Lemon.

Putting them all together using a 10ml roll on bottle.

Dilution guidelines

For a therapeutic blend a 10% dilution would be appropriate. 30 drops plus carrier oil in a 10ml bottle.

A 5% dilution of 15 drops plus carrier oil in a 10ml bottle is perfect to enjoy your essential oils daily.

For children, sensitive people, or the elderly a 1% dilution of 3 drops plus carrier oil in a 10ml bottle would be sufficient.

Add the essential oils to your bottle first. Let’s work with 15 drops (5% dilution) with one of my favourite blends I call Liquid Gold with Vetiver, Lavender and Wild Orange. I also call this my discombobulated blend for when you feel you are being pulled in too many directions and you just need to stop and reconnect.

Starting with the base the underlying scent which is Vetiver: 5 drops.

Lavender is my middle note: 5 drops soft and harmonising.

Wild Orange is my top note: 5 drops to lift and balance out the rich, heavy Vetiver.

Top up the bottle with a carrier oil such as almond oil, jojoba or fractionated coconut oil. A carrier oil helps to spread the oil into the skin.

I’ve opted to go equal amounts of each oil with Liquid Gold. The rule of thumb is:

Base note EO equals up to 20%
Middle note EO equals up to 80%
Top note EO equals up to 20%

I have roll on bottles and fractionated coconut oil in stock.  Blends can be made to order @ $20 each.
