Aromatic Blending of Essential Oils

Aromatic Blending

Blending fragrant oils for their aroma can be very satisfying while still receiving therapeutic benefits.  However, your focus will be on the aroma of your blend instead of its healing properties.

Essential oils are categorized in groups according to their aromas as follows:

  • Floral
  • Earthy
  • Woodsy
  • Herbaceous
  • Minty
  • Medicinal
  • Spicy
  • Oriental
  • Citrus

All categories can be mixed together, although some categories blend well together.  For instance, spicy and oriental oils blend well with floral and citrus oils; citrus, woodsy, and herbaceous oils blend well with minty oils; and woodsy blends well with all categories.
