Blending Essential Oils


 Each essential oil has its own unique chemical makeup, and can be divided into three main categories- Top Note (uplifting), Middle Note (calming), and Base Notes (grounding).  Essential Oils are 40-70x more concentrated than in plant form with complex chemical compositions, many have notes in several categories.

Top Notes  Citrus and some herb essential oils. Give first impression-stimulating & uplifting. Highly volatile, evaporate quickly. (bergamot, tangerine, orange, lemongrass, eucalyptus, spearmint, peppermint)

Middle or Heart Notes- Bulk of the blend-give body, smooth, warm, round and balancing. (lavender, litsea, basil, spearmint, geranium)

Base Notes-Woods, resins, some spices-deepen the blend, lasting effect, give it roots, very slow evaporation-sedative & relaxing. (cedarwood, cinnamon, cassia, clove, patchouli, anise)
