Blending Oils for Therapeutic Purposes

Essential Oil Therapeutic Recipes

If you’ve ever thought of blending essential oils for a new fragrance or for therapeutic uses, you might have been overwhelmed with the availability of so many essential oils and the combinations they can produce!

While there are so many classic pairings, you can always experiment to find the right blend that will heal you and has a wonderful aroma. Just remember that when it comes to blending essential oils, less is more.

You should also consider the effect you’re aiming for and the individual properties of each oil you use so that they don’t clash with your goals. For example, avoid stimulating oils like peppermint or tea tree oil when you are blending essential oils to promote sleep.

If you are in a DIY (read ‘mad scientist’) mood to create blends for particular therapeutic reasons, we’ve put together 6 essential oil rollerball recipes for you to easily create for your diffuser.

  • 4 drops Ylang Ylang

Anxiety

If you want to find out what combination works best for you before you start blending on your own, shop from our wide selection of essential oil rollerball blends or pick up blends that are safe for kids from the Mockingbird Apothecary store.

As always, we recommend that you seek medical advice if you are pregnant or have any medical concerns before using essential oils. Remember to do a patch test, keep them away from children and keep out of contact with eyes, nose, mouth or mucous membranes.
