Safety First

Just as if you are mixing your own alcoholic beverages, be careful about mixing essential oils together. Evaluate the properties of the oil before mixing. Make sure that the ones you are using will not reactive negatively on each other, thus not producing the desired effect and causing potential harm. Choose oils that will work with each other to create the right effect.

Stay Pure

Never use artificial fragrance oils in your aromatherapy blend. Fragrance oils only provide fragrance to the mix, and can deprive the essential oil of its purity. Use oils that are completely natural. You can usually tell by reading the ingredients on a bottle of aromatherapy; if does not list any ingredients, or just fragrance oils or a few other ingredients, it is not an aromatherapy product.


The best way to tell how an aromatherapy blend will work out is to test the oils first. Try applying a few dabs of the essential oils you are going to use onto a piece of tissue. Feel its texture, smell for fragrance and do this with each of the oils then try mixing your blend. Your aromatherapy blend will either be enhanced, flat or have no significant effect at all. This may take some time, but eventually you will find the right blend for you.

If you are serious about finding the best way to calm yourself spiritually, mentally and/or physically, then consider taking the time to find the right aromatherapy blend for you. Become your own scientist, and experiment with different oils to find the one that suits you the best. The time and effort will be worth it in the end.
