How to blend Essential oils Back to top
Essential oils are blended with two things in mind therapeutic properties and aroma. Several oils blended together are called a synergy and the right combination is very important so they work together and do not pull apart. In general most oils from the same family blend together, see the A-Z of oils most florals blend with floral and wood with wood see fragrance chart below. 

 

There are many Aromatherapy essential oils and combinations that can be used, we have listed some common conditions and popular oils, remember to check the safety data before using any essential oils.

 

 

Blending for Aroma Back to top

Aromatic blending for the pleasure of the aroma is a creativity science. When using a blend created  for its smell, therapeutic benefit can also happen. The blend is primarily for aroma not therapeutic value. Safety precautions should be followed for all blending, including aroma blending.

 

Big fragrance houses study the art and science of perfumery blending for years. They use essential oils and synthesized chemicals that mimic the constituents of essential oils, because they are cheaper than using pure essential oils and give be more consistent aroma in mass production. In aromatherapy blending, only natural essential oils are used.

 

Perfume Notes
Oil aromas are classified by "notes" Ylang Ylang is said to be a well balanced perfume oil, it has a soft floral top note, a rich creamy middle note and a spicy base note. To keep things simple each oil is also classified under its dominating note. The theory in perfumery is to try to use one of each to make a balance, but in aromatherapy you also need to take into account therapeutic properties this is where it gets complicated and training and experience is needed.

Lets Start Aroma Blending !

When creating a new blend, use small number of drops of about 5 to cut down on waste of expensive oils. Use smelling strips to try different mixs.

Make a note of what you have done for future reference and label the bottle.

Store you blend in dark glass bottles, oils go off with light and eat through plastic !

It takes a few days for the oils to settle down together before use

 

Simple Aroma Recipes
Alcohol Base Perfume
6 teaspoons Vodka
2 teaspoons Distilled Water
60 drops of your perfume blend

Mix together well and store in an airtight dark glass bottle. Let settle for a couple of weeks, shake the bottle a few time a day to mix the oils up. When its ready filter the perfume through a coffee filter then pour it back in the bottle..

Carrier Oil Base Perfume
25 drops of your perfume blend
2 tablespoons of carrier oil
Mix together and store in an airtight dark glass bottle. Leave a couple of days, use sparingly.

 

Therapeutic Blending Back to top

Unlike aroma perfume blending the importance is placed on the therapeutic value of the essential oils. Each essential oil has its own therapeutic value some have more than others. When creating your blend make sure the therapeutic values don't contradict each other. You do need to like the smell of the blend its not going to do you much good if the smell knocks you sick ! some people hate the smell of certain oils I for instance cant stand geranium.

Dilution of Essential oils
Before you apply the essential oils on to the skin they must be diluted in carrier oils. Measure out the carrier oil into a glass bowl then add the essential oil. Use 3-4 oils per recipe, to test combinations before you mix add a drop of each oil onto a strip of blotting paper or cotton bud to test if you like the combination.    

For 1 massage             
15-30 drops of essential oil in 60ml of carrier oil
