A note about blending essential oils

Blending essential oils is like composing harmonious chords in music and you can learn to tune your nose like you would your ears to recognize sharps, flats, perfect pitch, and harmony.

To further the musical analogy, a well-tuned (or balanced) blend usually includes a top, middle, and base note in its recipe. These are categories that loosely reflect the endurance and evaporation rates of essential oils.

When blending these recipes, start with the base notes, then add the middle notes, then add the top notes.

Also, make sure you pre-wash and dry your roller bottles as you would your jars when making jam.

Start with these numbers of drops and then add more drops of any of your essential oils, if you like. Ideally, in a 10ml roller bottle, don't exceed more than 20 drops total. Also, have some coffee beans handy to clear your nasal palate every few minutes.

Here are 7 Essential Oil Rollerball Recipes for you to try.

1) Red Star for the Root Chakra Blend
