Essential Oil Blending Basics
Creating your own fragrances is a playful art, requiring little more than intuition, imagination, a passion for aroma, and attention to a few simple guidelines. There are no absolute rules as to which oils blend well together, so feel free to experiment! But remember, your blend will be greatly enhanced by using the highest quality pure plant essential oils you can find.
Easy Aromatherapy Blends
Start small, mixing no more than 2 to 5 oils per blend and blending drop by drop. To get a feel for particular combinations of oils, put the bottle caps together and smell them, or use small strips of coffee filter or blotter paper. Working in a warm room will enhance the aromatic qualities of the oils. If your oil bottles are not equipped with dropper tops, measure oils with a glass dropper, rinsing it in isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) and wiping it off between each oil. Extremely thick oils, such as benzoin and vetiver, may need to be diluted with a little grain alcohol (such as Everclear, or perfumery grade grain or grape alcohol) before blending. When your nose becomes fatigued, smell a piece of wool or a jar of coffee beans to refresh your sense of smell.
Top Notes, Middle Notes and Base Notes
Most professional fragrances are composed of a balance of oils from these three different categories, which are based on oil evaporation rates. Once again, there are no hard and fast rules about which oils belong in which category or how much of each to use, so it is up to your nose and your intuition! This is the art of blending fragrant oils.
Top notes (5% to 20% of the blend) have the fastest evaporation rates. These are sharp, penetrating scents that you notice first when you smell a blend and they are the quickest to dissipate and disappear. Examples are citrus, needle oils, eucalyptus, mints and some spices. In general, top notes are considered stimulating and refreshing.
Middle notes (50% to 80%), also called Heart notes, are soft and balanced and usually make up the majority of a blend. They include oils like Roman chamomile, lavender, geranium, and petitgrain. Middle notes are considered harmonizing.
Base notes (5% to 20%) have the lowest evaporation rates, are deep and heavy, and are used in blends as fixatives (stabilizes and increases the tenacity or "staying power" of a blend). Many are resins, gums or woods and may be quite viscous (thick). Base notes, which are considered grounding and relaxing, include angelica, benzoin, balsams, myrrh, spikenard, patchouli, vetiver and sandalwood.
Many oils fall into more than one category.
Aromatherapy Blending Tips
Your blend can be added to a base of vegetable oil or body lotion for application. Jojoba Oil is a good choice because of its stability and long shelf life. Usually a 10% - 15% dilution of essential oil to carrier oil is appropriate for perfume applications and 5 - 15 drops of blend per ounce of carrier oil (Almond, Sunflower, Grapeseed, etc.) or lotion for healing massage blends. If you don’t immediately love your creation, be patient. Blends undergo great transformations as they age, and over time your ‘mistake’ could evolve into an aromatic treasure.
Alternately, you can add your blend to a base of pure grain alcohol (190 proof is best). This works especially well when working with resinous oils and absolutes. 15-30 drops essential oils in 3mls of alcohol is a typical dilution. This could be kept in a small bottle to dab onto pulse points. For a cologne, a combination of alcohol and water is used (1 part alcohol to two parts water). This can be put in a small spray bottle.
Storing Essential Oil Blends
Store your finished blend in as small a bottle as possible (amber or cobalt blue glass bottles are best). Aromatherapy blends (and all essential oils) should be kept cool, away from direct sun.
Be sure to keep detailed notes and label all of your blends so you can reproduce your successes or adjust blends that do not satisfy you. Keep in mind that essential oils tend to vary somewhat from crop to crop, so a reproduced blend may differ slightly from your original.
Simplers Essential Oil Dilution Guide
With Essential Oils more is not necessarily better. Some people experience skin sensitivities to even mild essentials oils when applied diluted and or neat (undiluted) to the skin (children and the elderly are especially sensitive). Test yourself for sensitivity by applying your chosen essential oils in a dilution to a small skin area before using on a larger area.
These are a few of the more popular dilutions for pure essential oils.
Remember that with essential oils, one drop goes a long way. Pure essential oils are volatile oils that easily penetrate the skin and some may cause skin irritation or sensitivity if not properly diluted in a carrier oil or lotion, or if used in high concentrations. Always be sure to use only pure essential oils from a trusted source.
