9 Essential Oil Blending Tips You Must Read

NO Rules Perfume Blending does not have hard and fast rules that must be followed to create that beautiful blend that you’ll love for a lifetime. The lack of limits and restrictions is what makes perfumery an art form. Let’s get started with a few tips to get you off to an excellent start. Tips Tips: 1. When creating a new blend, start out small with a total number of drops of either 5, 10, 20 or 25 drops. 25 drops should be the most that you start with.

Lavender Blends Inhaler Recipe

Lavender is probably the most famous essential oil for relaxation and soothing nerves . . . if not the most famous essential oil hands down! That’s because it’s so safe and so good for a wide range of issues. Emotionally, it’s good for “calming the mind, comforting feelings and alleviating fears, while it is uplifting and revives the spirits.” (That’s from Salvatore Battaglia’s excellent book, The Complete Guide to Aromatherapy.) Lavender may be powerful, but it’s also very gentle, and it’s one of the oils I trust the most in blends for children.
