Creating Own Personality Blend of Essential Oils

How to create own personality blend of essential oils

Your personality blend represents your fragrant identity. Your unique blend is composed of essential oils with which you feel a strong affinity, which resonate with your personal rhythm and reflect the way you face the world. As you mature, this blend may alter slightly to reflect your personality changes. Occasionally you will need to replace an essential oil with another one, thereby delicately shifting the blend.

Take some quiet time to reflect upon yourself, your character and disposition, your beliefs and values,
your habits and tendencies, your
strengths and weaknesses.

Simultaneously think about the essential oils. Whenever an essential oil springs to mind, put it to one side.
Take a cotton wool bud for each essential oil, and put a couple of drops on one end. Label each bud so that you don't get confused. Sniff each one in turn: if it feels right, keep it; if not, discard it. Hold two or three cotton wool buds under your nose and wave them around. Is the blend harmonious? Does it reflect your personality? Keep experimenting until you find the right combination for your personality blend.

When you first create your own personality blend, limit yourself to five essential oils. This gives you enough scope to explore all aspects of your personality, without becoming over-complicated. Once you have experience of the process, you can gradually increase the number of essential oils you use - keep going until you have eight or ten.

Making your personality blend of essential oils into a perfume

You will need:

  • 10 ml (2 teaspoons) rollette bottle with a roller-ball insert
  • 10 ml (2 teaspoons) sweet almond or jojoba oil
  • Essential oils of your choice (up to 50 drops)

What to do:

  1. Half-fill the bottle with the sweet almond or jojoba oil, then add your chosen essential oils.
  2. Shake well, top up the bottle with the remaining base oil and shake again. Leave the blend to mature - ideally for a week or two, but at least for a few days.
