An essential oil blend can be created for therapeutic effect, the beauty of a fragrance - or both. A synergistic effect is possible when the essential oils work together harmoniously. You do not need to be an expert in the use of essential oils to create blends. We’ve outlined below some basic information that may be useful to you as you journey into the creativity of blending ...
When creating a blend you will want to consider the purpose of the blend the desired therapeutic effect and / or the type of fragrance desired the concepts of a balanced blend You will want to familiarize yourself with the fragrance and effect of essential oils Breathe the aroma and
note how it makes you feel - calm, uplifted, focused, sensual, other note the scent - is it light, fresh, strong, sweet, green, other breathe directly from the bottle - swirl the essential oil in the bottle to stir up the molecules first or place a drop on an unscented tissue, blotter paper or other porous type paper and breathe
To test the aroma of the an individual essential oil you can
You may experience olfactory overload if you are testing the aroma of different essential oils. You will no longer be able to smell them! This is common. You can restore your sense of smell by smelling coffee beans, or the simplest - your armpit. It’s true - it works and it’s always with you!
When blending for therapeutic effect
Determine essential oils that may be useful - see our therapeutic matrix for details List essential oils in priority order when several effects are desired (this can be used to determine the number of drops of each essential oil you will use) Test the fragrance as described above
Some pointers for creating a balanced blend There is no limit on how many essential oils you can use in your blend. Many blends for therapeutic effect contain only 3 to 4 essential oils - yet Shalimar contains 13 and Aramis contains 14!
Essential oils blend harmoniously with essential oils in the same family. Here are some family classifications:
Blending Labiatae: basil, clary sage, lavender, marjoram, peppermint, rosemary Rutacea: bergamot, lemon, orange Coniferae: cedarwood, juniper
Essential oils have different rates of volatility and evaporation and perfumiers have placed essential oils into these categories:
top note: fresh, light, fast evaporation - first scent you are aware of in a blend middle note: evaporates slower - it is considered the body of the fragrance base note: the fragrance is rich, emerges slowly and lingers
You can balance the fragrance of your blend by including top, middle and base notes. You may have experienced this layering effect in wearing a perfume or cologne - where the scent changed over time. A table of essential oils that blend well together is provided for reference. In this table we’ve also listed the traditional note types. Whether an essential oil is top, middle or base can be subjective and is influenced by person, growing season, distilling method and more. You may want to use essential oils with a strong fragrance sparingly - such as peppermint or basil. Lavender may be useful for toning down strong scented oils. You can add just a drop or two of any essential oil to create an appealing fragrance in your blend. Blended essential oils will merge over time and the fragrance may change. You can leave the blend for a day, then return and test the fragrance .. it may be perfect!
As you experiment with your blend creations keep a log of
the number of drops you use of each essential oil in the blend the fragrance - both your initial experience and the fragrance after time has passed the therapeutic effect
You may be surprised to find that you’ve created a masterpiece - and you will be able to duplicate it!

Once made, perfumes should age for several weeks. This provides time for all the single essential oils to meld together, emerging as a unique cohesive blend,
displaying an individualized character greater than the sum of its parts. Your completed perfume blend should have volume, a full bodied character, and should not appear "thin" or "tin-ny". A carefully constructed perfume blend will be representational through all three phases of the fragrance life. Wearing Your Perfume Blend If your blend contains an essential oil that is photosensitizing, wear it on an area of your body that won't be exposed to sunlight. Some ingredients can stain clothing. Never wear too much perfume. It is better to be understated. The desired result is to entice those around you to come closer, to be drawn into your aura of scent. A successful perfume blend is achieved if the wearer has a sense of well being, and if the fragrance is not overbearing. The blend must be appropriate to the surroundings, have staying power, unfold evenly and be dermatologically safe. Perfumes are wonderful for influencing or enhancing a mood. Perfumes for the office, a casual party, or sports should be light, fresh or fruity. For a dinner date you may prefer something heavy, warm, sweet or sensual.
