Aromatic blending is a combination of creativity and science. Essential oils will evaporate at different rates because of their molecular compositions. Oils that evaporate the quickest, usually within 1-2 hours, are called top notes. Oils that evaporate within 2-4 hours are considered middle notes and oils that take the longest time to evaporate - up to a few days - are referred to as base notes. Each of our oils have the fragrance 'Note' listed on the bottle. We recommend the following formula in creating your personal blend: Top note: 2-3 drops; Middle note: 4-8 drops; Base note: 1-3 drops.
We can feel a little different each day, so follow your nose and intuition when blending for your personal preference.
Use: 2-3 drops in diffuser, full body bath, foot bath or diluted in 10ml carrier oil for massage. A few drops in cooking.
Plant Compounds: eugenol, eugenyl acetate, sesquiterpene hydrocarbons.
These are beneficial natural plant compounds and they differ between each essential oil, giving each oil its distinct natural properties.
