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. By starting small, you waste less oil in your blending experiments. 2. Start creating your blend by only using essential oils, absolutes or CO2s. After you have designed the blend, then you can dilute it by adding carrier oils, alcohol, etc. If you hate the blend you created, you have then not wasted any carrier oils or alcohol. 3.

If you are especially ambitious, it’s also a wise idea to note the vendor name of the oil that you used as the aroma and quality of oils do vary between vendors (even with the same vendor, the aroma...

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. Here’s an Aromatherapy inhaler for kids (over five years old) who experience anxiety: Breathe and Be Calm for Children 2 drops Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) 3 drops Cedarwood (Juniperus virginiana) 2 drops Tangerine (Citrus reticulata) Breathe and Be Calm for Big People 3 drops Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) 6 drops Juniper berry (Juniperus communis) 6 drops Cypress (Cupressus...
