Essential Oils and what YOU can do with them!!!

March 4, 2014

You can create your own aromas for personal

body sprays or even room fresheners. Give up those

 imitation fragrances and go Natural!   

The ability to create your own personalized aromas is liberating! Whether you are needing a sedate relaxation, a rejuvenating and soothing feel or relief from minor aches and pains,  you can mix and match pure Essential Oils to target just what you need. There  are several ways to enjoy your mixes: in water as a body spray, used in a diffuser (see pic below for one type) for whole room freshening, mix with a carrier oil for massage or body moisturizing, or even drop onto a tissue to carry with you wherever you go.

Always be sure to choose pure good quality oils.

Different oils are classified as notes- Top notes are light and airy and  tend to be the first thing you smell in a blend but also evaporate quickly. Middle notes are the “body” of a blend- not necessarily noticeable right off the bat but slowly show up with a balancing effect. The Base note tends to have a heady strong aroma  and lasts longer than the others. I’ve included a list below to give you an example of the different notes- these are just the Essential Oils I have available now at SagesMassage.  You can find more comprehensive lists on the web.

As a very basic rule, your mix should contain 30% Top note, 50% Middle note and 20% Base note. This is a guideline only to get you started. It is recommended to add only a drop at a time as you can quickly overpower your blend.

As you learn what different oils are good for, you can mix and match to affect what you need. There are plenty of books and sites to get more info from and I suggest you find one that resonates with you. There are also classes for those that would like to delve more seriously into this fascinating area!

Here is a wonderful blend from the Aromatherapist the products I sell are from-  Rose Chard at Your Body Needs:
