Essential Oil Luxurious Floral Blend

Blending essential oils can be easy and fun! To get the best results you may need to do some research and experimenting. Don't necessarily expect to get it right every single time! The journey can sometimes be just as important as the end result. By experimenting you will discover more about the properties of the individual oils and most importantly, how they work together.
As you have probably experienced, certain aromas suit some people and not others. For instance, I really like spicy, earthy and citrus smells, whereas you may prefer floral scents. You need to find your own end aroma and the best way to do this is by blending your selected essential oils in different combinations.

ESSENTIAL OIL BLENDS BY NOTES

Have you ever noticed that your essential oil blend smells differently after a few hours than when you first created it? This is because certain essential oils evaporate quicker than others, so while one oil might still hold its fragrance in the blend, the others may have long gone.

HERE ARE SOME BASICS...

Top notes - the lightest fragrances which are quickest to evaporate and the most stimulating and uplifting to the mind and body. They tend to give the first impression of a blend and typically have antiseptic properties.

Middle notes - these are warm, soft and subtle fragrances which usually last throughout a massage. They have medium volatility and tend to affect the functions and general metabolism of the body. Also good for balancing and relaxing the mind. 

Base notes - the slowest to evaporate, so last the longest and are usually the most relaxing and sedating oils. They tend to be the last impression of a blend.

GROUPING ESSENTIAL OILS

Before beginning to create your own aromatherapy recipes of any sort, a good starting point is to categorize your essential oils into groups that share similar traits. This can be by how they smell –scent type.

SCENT TYPE CHART

Flowery – Jasmine, Lavender, Rose, Vanilla.

Citrus –Grapefruit, Lemon, Orange, Tangerine, Lemongrass, Lime, Melissa.

Spicy –Cinnamon, Clove, Ginger, Nutmeg, Pepper.

Woody –Coriander, Cypress, Frankincense, Fir, Sandalwood, Vetiver, Myrrh.
