It’s official - my scented candle collection has started gathering dust.
I used to love candles so much, but lately it has collected some dust since my first diffuser arrived. If you are new to essential oils, you'll get to know them better through the use of a diffuser. If you've been an essential oil fan for some time now, your choice of blends might be influenced by other people's recommendations.
Essential oils are plant extracts that are being used for aromatherapy. They have a wide range of uses – for healing, relaxation, triggering of emotions and memories, addressing hormonal imbalances, and many others.
There are several oil blends out there, but many people choose to create a blend of their own. If that’s you, then you’re going to want to read on.
Blending essential oils is an equal mix (pun intended!) of science and art. In this article, you will learn that there is an actual system and structure to it –it’s not all guesswork. As you go through this article, you will learn which oils should be used when blending, which oils go together and which ones don’t, what effect does certain combined oils have, and which oils have a complementary effect on each other.
Creating your very own essential oil blend will require you to have a good understanding of the following concepts:
Now that I’ve given you a bit of a run-through with the important concepts, let’s take it a step further. Here are some important principles that you will need to be familiar with:
Why It Matters
Now, how do all of these things we’ve talked about so far piece together when it comes to blending essential oils?
When blending oils, it is best to mix light-moleculed oils with heavy-moleculed ones. This is because doing so can produce a synergistic effect (AKA allows the oil to build on each other), making the oil last longer, as opposed to mixing oils that are all light-moleculed or oils that are all heavy-moleculed.
This is the number one principle also applied to creating perfumes. Call it as the ultimate rule of thumb – it’s been ruling in the industry of perfumes and essential oil blending for years.
Here’s a bit of essential oil blending jargon: lighter oils are called “top notes”; heavier oils are referred to as “base notes”. Anything in between would be “middle notes”.
As you’ve noticed, the word “notes” is being used – yes, notes just like the notes in a music sheet. Perfumers and aromatherapists liken oils with musical notes because just like these musical notes we find on a music sheet or we hear from a musical instrument, oils also have a unique, individual scent, but when mixed with other oils, it blends and creates a “chord” or another unique scent of its own.
Simply put, the best essential oil blend would be composed of one base note, one top note, and one middle note. In other words, it wouldn’t do well to blend oils that are all base notes or all top notes.
When mixing essential oils, you also need to think about your think about purpose.
