BLENDING YOUR OWN
When creating your blend, a good rule of thumb is to keep the ratio of 3:2:1which translates into three parts top note essential oils to two part middle note essential oils to one part base note essential oils. This will create harmony in your blend.
So now you have your carrier oil and your essential oils. How much do you mix of each? A good standard is to have the essential oils make up only two percent of your total mixture, which translates into twelve drops of essential oil to everyone fluid ounce or 30mL of carrier oil. You can use a one percent mixture for the very young and very old as well as people who have particularly sensitive skin. Measure out your carrier oil in flask and then proceed to add in the essential oils. Add the essential oils in slowly…you don’t want to risk adding too much all at once or you’ll ruin your whole blend.
Once you have added in your essential oils, gently swirl the concoction in the glass or flask to thoroughly combine. Just like cooking, you may have to add a little more of a particular oil or oils to get it just right. One suggestion is to keep a notebook close at hand to record exactly how much of each oil you used in case you want to create that perfect blend at another time.
Now you can enjoy your new concoction! Just remember to do a skin patch test to make sure the blend is acceptable before using it on the entire body. Once you find your perfect blend, feel free to name it and distribute the recipe!
