Blending your pure essential oils seems like a matter of simply mixing a few different oils together. This is not the case. Blending essential oils is one of the most difficult aspects of aromatherapy to learn and to practice. To create a good blend, one must first have an understanding of what they want the particular blend to accomplish. In addition, blending requires a thorough knowledge of different essential oils, their specific properties and unique aromas. The "scent aesthetic" is of great importance, because you want your blend to smell good!
Unless you are creating an essential oil blend to be used in a diffuser, you will always be blending, or mixing, your essential oils with some type of emulsifier. Essential oils are not water soluble and need to be mixed into a carrier base, so that they properly diluted. There are many different types of emulsifiers. Some examples are carrier oils, such as grapeseed or apricot kernel oil, unscented lotions, liquid soap or unscented bath salts. For a massage blend, grapeseed oil is the best choice, because it tends to be nongreasy.
The amount of essential oil you use in your blend is very important; it can be easy to over do it when it comes to adding the essential oils to the carrier base. Be careful that you do not overpower the blend with too much essential oil. When creating an aromatherapy blend, use about twenty drops of essential oil for every ounce of carrier oil. When adding essential oils to lotions and liquid soaps, the same dosages apply. When blending bath salts, about 10-12 drops of essential oil per every two ounces of dry mineral salts is recommended.
When creating an aromatherapy blend, it is important to know what you want to accomplish beforehand. Will your creation be a relaxing massage oil or an energizing diffuser blend? Maybe a meditation blend for the bath? Or a lotion to help stimulate your immune system that you will use on a daily basis?
Once you have decided what kind of aromatherapy blend you want to make, you will be ready to start. Begin by choosing what your base emulsifier will be; massage oil, bath salts, liquid soap or lotion? Diffuser blends do not require base emulsifiers. Work your blend out on paper first to avoid mistakes. Start with the heaviest botanicals, or base notes. These will be the thick, fullbodied essences such as patchouli, sandalwood or cedarwood. Then add the middle notes. Middle notes comprise the majority of the blend. They are the scents that round out the extremes of the top and base notes. Lavender and marjoram are good examples of middle notes. Lastly, add the top notes. These are the sharp, terse scents that are the first to hit the nose. Most citrus essences are top notes. Top notes are characteristically the oils which are the most volatile; that is, they come on strong and then dissipate just as quickly, leaving but a faint remnant of their once piercing aromas.
Create a quiet, peaceful environment in which to do your blending. Remember to label your aromatherapy blends and keep notes. Aromatherapy is a wonderful way of expressing creativity!

This recipe was contributed by Straif Blackthorn, a professional aromatherapist and witch of over 15 years. She has combined her knowledge of plants and essential oils plus her techniques for making pure skin care products to bring you this recipe. The books sited above represent only a small number of those which were referred to in order to create this recipe. You may copy this to your website provided all the information is left in tact and a link to the originating website is maintained.
Here's what you'll need:
Mix these oils by candlelight on the night of the maiden full moon in a cobalt blue bottle. Now store in a dark place away from natural sunlight and shake gently every morning and evening for the 3 days of the full moon. When ready to use, first apply a small amount to the inside of your elbow and wait 24h to check for reactions. Then if it is safe, apply a small amount to the soles of your feet and lie back and relax. Use whatever method you prefer to prepare to astral travel and while you prepare, the mixture will be doing its work.
Keep this mix away from your eyes nose, mouth and other sensitive areas of your body. Do *not* ingest this mixture, use for cooking or massage. As this mixture contains oils with contraindications, I suggest that you avoid using this mix if you are pregnant or have high blood pressure.

A nerve disorder that is quite common and often work related. Valerie Ann Wormwood recommends massaging both hands, arms and shoulders using a blend of:
Dilute this in 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil.
Massage 2 x a day.
Magical oils are mixtures of real essential oils or synthetic scented oils blended into a base of vegetable oil such as almond oil or apricot kernel oil. The scented oils are added drop by drop and diluted with the base oil. They are mixed in small quantities to produce an oil to anoint yourself, or objects with to achieve a magical intent. Tinctures and extracts are produced from the herb itself which is steeped in grain alcohol over a period of days. The alcohol acts as a solvent for the volatile oils in the plant material, drawing them out and absorbing them. The tincture or extract when done contains the essential elements of the plant material and can be used like an oil.
The oils you'll need depend upon what sort of magical work you want to do. I recommend buying them as you need them rather than stocking up in advance. True essential oils are expensive and all oils are volatile and must be stored properly to maintain their strength, by purchasing them in small quantities as needed you will be assured of having full strength oils and not spend money unnecessarily. Store all essential oils (EOs) in a cool, dry, dark place in the cobalt or amber bottle in which they were purchased. The bottle is dark to protect the oil from exposure to light. Do not purchase EOs in clear glass, or plastic bottles. Citrus and pine EOs should be stored in the refrigerator to retard the development of irritating chemicals which takes place naturally as they age.
EOs do not become rancid, but some lose their effectiveness with prolonged storage. As a rule of thumb, buy no more than you can use in a years time. Older EOs that retain their fragrance may still be used for that purpose. The base oils can be found at the grocery or health food store. I suggest storing your base oil in the refrigerator to lengthen it's life. All vegetable oils will eventually go rancid no matter how they are stored, it is a chemical process that comes from exposure to air and cannot be prevented indefinitely. When you make tinctures or extracts you use the fresh or dry herb. Grain alcohol can be purchased where you purchase liquor, either at a grocery store or a liquor store. You may have to ask for it, Clearsprings or Everclear are two brand name versions. If you cannot get grain alcohol where you live, use an inexpensive vodka.
You will need a minimum of equipment to produce oils and tinctures. An assortment of amber or deep blue glass bottles and vials to blend your oils in and store your tinctures and blended oils in to protect them from light. They should be kept in a cool, dry place since heat dissipates the essential oils and excessive moisture clouds the blend. It is necessary to point out here that your blends will eventually go rancid due to their vegetable oil base so make small quantities that you can use up quickly. Do not use any plastic or metal containers in making your oils and tinctues. Plastics absorb scents and will cross contaminate your product and metals can react with the essences. Some glass eyedroppers will be useful for measuring fragrant oils into the oil base and several larger, wide mouth jars such as well cleaned mayonnaise jars for steeping tincture in will complete your equipment. You will want some labels for your finished product, fancy or plain, depending upon your taste. If possible use an indelible ink that won't dissolve if alcohol or oil spills on it or cover the label with clear cellophane tape like they do at the pharmacy.
When you are experimenting with oil blends it is wise to write down what you are adding and how much of it as you go. Otherwise, you may create the most wonderful, delicious smelling, love oil that works like a charm and not be able to recreate it when you want to make more. If you keep track of what you are trying you will know the exact, replicatile steps to make your fabulous creations again, and you will know what sounded good and smelled like crap so you don't have to try that combination again. Keep the recipes in a notebook or in your BOS for later reference.
Two cautions, it is possible to be allergic to oils and tinctures. If you plan to anoint yourself with them test your skin in a small patch before using them to be sure you won't have a reaction. Also, in case it occurs to you that you could use the essential oils straight, don't. Most of them will cause skin irritation if used full strength. Nobody wants to go to circle with a witch who has itchy, scaly, weeping sores all over them. You have been warned! And finally, if you are planning to anoint objects with your oils and tinctures be aware that they will stain. Both will leave oily residues and greasy marks on whatever you put them on. The alcohol in the tinctures can bleach the color out of some fabrics and all papers and will damage the finish on wood furniture. Keep this in mind when anointing to be sure you don't ruin anything precious or delicate.
As with any herbal product it is best to compound oils using the correct correspondences for the intent. See Correspondences for the correct timing for the ritual. Tinctures take more than one day to make so you cannot start and finish them at an hour chosen from the chart. If possible though, start them steeping on the correct day for the intent and strain and bottle them on the correct day and time one week later. Any herbal product will be stronger if compounded with ritual designed for the magical intent. It is important to visualize the achievement of your goal whilst preparing and bottling your creations. Some herbs that you may want to use will not be available as a true essential oil. There are several possible reasons for this. Some herbs or flowers are so difficult to extract oils from that it is not done commercially. Some herbs or flowers produce Toxic essential oils, or oils that cause sensitization reactions severe enough to warrant them not being sold. In addition, some available essential oils are not safe to use during Do not use during Pregnancy and some oils cause what is known as Phytotoxicity upon exposure to ultraviolet light which can cause anything from mild brown blotches through to severe burning of the skin. Many essential oils are irritating to the skin if not properly diluted. For these oils, you may want to substitute a synthetic perfume oil. Since the synthetic product does not contain the actual essences of the plant it does not have the same side effects. Some argue that the synthetic oils do not have the same magical attributes as the true essential oil, but in my experience, oils blended with synthetic oils do work.

Based on a recipe handed down to me for burning on charcoal. For getting others to do as we wish and be careful what you wish for! Use with caution.
What you need:
Based on a recipe handed down to me for burning on charcoal. Particularly useful with love rituals; use with red male figure candle. *wiggles eyebrows*
What you need:
Add the essential oils to the bottle and swirl them gently in order to get them blended. Add any crystals (make sure they are clean too) and then add your base oil to top the bottle off. I don't use crystals in all my blends but some people add crystals to their magical blends to keep them charged with a specific intention. Make sure to keep the oils stored away from light and write on a sticker or piece of paper to be taped on the name of the blend, time, date, moon phase, planetary hour and any other info you wish so that you know what you made and when for use later. As well, be careful as these blends will eventually go off so use your sniffer and be aware of what the blend should smell like. Once it seems off, you can discard it, clean the bottle and start a fresh! Make sure it is completely clean and if it cannot be completely cleaned, discard and use a fresh one.
Remember - essential oils can cause reactions and oils like citrus can cause photosensitivity so please - be careful ~ Herbs can be dangerous.
Essential oils are volatile so bottles left with tops off will soon lose their potency. Ensure that oils don't get too hot and, in the case of oils like citrus-based oils, not too cold. To test your essential oils to see if they are pure, put a drop or two on blotter paper. Genuine essential oils will evaporate completely.
