Essential Oil Guide

What Are Essential Oils? 

Within the seeds, stems, bark, roots, wood, needles, flowers and fruit of wonderful plants, essential oils can be found, extracted and used aromatically and topically. If you would like a deeper dive into this aromatherapy please read our blog.

Steps to blend Essential oils for your diffuser:

  • Determine You Mood: Determine what effect you want from your custom blend. Do you want to relax? Do you need some uplifting or energising? Are you studying and need to focus? Is it close to bedtime? Do you want to promote a peaceful home? What type of environment are you looking to create...calming, uplifting, motivating, relaxing, stimulating?

  • Select Your Oils: Select the type of oils that fit your mood and blend them together. 

  • Make You Custom Blend: The amount of each oil you choose to add will influence the aroma and even the effect of the diffuser blend. You will want between 5-8 drops total of essential oils for each 100 ml of water. Once you determine how many drops of oil you want, start mixing essential oils using a drop by drop until you reach a scent that you like. Be sure to write down your recipe blend so you can make it again if you desire. 

  • Enjoy! Place your custom oil blend into diffuser with required water. Once you turn on and experience your blend, determine if the aroma and environment you created matches your initial goal. Make adjustments as needed to oils and drop amount for next time.
