DIY ESSENTIAL OIL BLENDS
Essential Oils have surely changed our lives for good. With the aroma, the beauty and the health benefits, one cannot stop using essential oils once included in the lifestyle. I find my oils to be my personal therapist that uplifts both my skin and my mood whenever I want to. Yet no matter how much variety of the oils I have, being a creative person I feel like adding a personal touch to it. So, I turn to my Essential oils blends depending upon my mood and purpose, which I prepared myself after I became a loyal user of the essential oils. So I would like to share some of the DIY Essential Oil Blends which are super easy to use but will create a lot more difference to your life.
GUIDE TO ESSENTIAL OILS:
So, if you are new to the enchanting world of aroma and oils, no problem! It won’t take time to be covered in its love. If you are already reading this, well I’m super excited to share my DIY blend recipes with you. Let me tell the newcomers, what exactly a blend is and how it is more effective than normal essential oil.
As it is obvious that a blend is made by adding two or more essential oils together, but the thing is..Which oils and how much? There are thousands of essential oils in the world and each have their own unique properties, how can we decide which we want. Well..honestly you’ve gotta explore!!
There are some tips for making the initial purchases for your oils:
- Start with the common oils that you generally hear people using. These are popular for a reason. Each drop of an essential oil is derived from a large quantity of the plant, thus it is highly concentrated. You should start with the safest of oils and mild ones after researching and reading the reviews of others. A totally alien oil may leave you clueless both in terms of its properties and aroma.!!
- Always make sure that you have a Carrier oil at home before an essential oil. As stated above essential oils are highly concentrated and cannot be used without dilution in a suitable carrier oil. Carrier oils include Almond oil, jojoba oil, coconut oil, argan oil, etc.
- Never buy oils from unauthentic sources. Always prefer trusted brands and even if you want to try new because that pretty friend of yours recommended, ask for specifications or certificate. If you are going to use oil for topical purposes, the purest of product should be allowed to go deep into your skin and not cheaper fake oil. Sva naturals is a trusted and verified brand and my absolute favourite. HBNO is also a very reputed brand. So you may buy from here.
- A patch test on hand before actual application is always recommended before the use to see how the skin is reacting to it. The test should also be with the diluted oil.
After you’ve got the oils, bring clarity on how do you want to use it. Though the thing is, it can be used anywhere!! My mom uses Rosemary Oil and Argan Oil blend for her head massage and my friend uses Lavender Oil- Clary sage Oil blend in her YOGA studio. A cousin of mine prefers Sandalwood Oil and Frankincense Oil blend in his office diffuser. My niece makes amazing fragrant candles using different blends of her own. All purchased from SVA Organics, we really don’t want to switch to other brand.
So there are hundreds of ways to use these oils. And the best way is YOURS. Yes, you heard me right! Because whatever purpose they solve, they are therapeutic and safe to use. With everything adulterated around us, these are still keeping us closer to nature and pure oils are absolute magic
So here are my few blends which I have been using for some time now and it’s working really well.
MATERIAL REQUIRED FOR BLENDING:
Since the essential oils are highly concentrated, they are better off the skin before dilution!
- Droppers or Glass pipets
To easily pour and to avoid the unnecessary spill or mixing of oils, get few droppers of glass pipets preferably separate for each oil.
- Glass bottles, containers or cups
In size from 1 oz to 8 oz, get few glass containers for mixing of oils and storage as well. Try to avoid plastic containers as the oils may react so we prefer glass.
- Blotting Paper or Cotton Balls
We might have a steady hand but, spills happen and we don’t really like stains.
You may wanna write your own amazing blends too. So before they vanish from your mind, just write them down.
