Essential oil blends work great in every household, whether that’s freshening up the smell of your house, replacing your skin care or to help boost your mood.

But if you’re new to blending essential oils, where do you begin? 😕

If you’re like me, you don’t want to waste your oils when trying to figure out which oils blend well together.

You get confused, frustrated and annoyed when you throw away the fifth blend you were convinced was going to smell great, just for it to make you feel ill.

So what’s easier than giving you a list of blends that have already been tried (and loved) by others?

Mix these up exactly as they say or adjust them to the oils you already have. 😃

Each oil has different benefits, so if you want to know exactly how each oil will affect your health, you can check out all 94 essential oils and what they’re good for.

Anyway, to use these blends, add them into your essential oil diffuser (any type you like), dilute them in a carrier oil / lotion / moisturiser and use them on your skin or try out an aromatherapy recipe (these include both household cleansers, bath products, etc.)

So, let’s get into it.

Essential oils make an amazing, natural replacement for most things in your house, including cleansers, air fresheners, candles, skin care and more.

But by using these, you can help yourself get started with blending and making your own combos!

If you’ve read the guide on all 94 oils, then imagine how many combinations there are.

You’ve probably guessed, there’s a lot!

But it can become confusing because how do you really know which ones actually smell great together (and how do you know which blends smell awful)?

Did you know, each oil can be categorised into a type of scent?

Yep, it depends on each individual but, every oil has a certain scent and usually those in the same category work well together.

Because there’s so many, it can become a pain to try and sort out all 94 so you can quickly go back to them whenever you want to try something new.

And not everyone wants to only diffuse their oils.

Maybe you want to make your own batch of bath bombs or an air freshener that smells of your favourite blend?

Because, let’s be honest, no one wants to be limited to just using their diffuser when there are tons of other ways you can use oils.

If you don’t know where to start, you can use my eBook with 60 essential oil blends for you to try out, a blending chart to help you make your own combo and 10 aromatherapy recipes!

And don’t forget, you can pin these 20 blends for later! 📌
