A note about Mixing Your Own Aromatherapy Oils - Some Tips & Guidelines
In natural health and healing, we believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man's understanding. We also believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases.
In order to do so, the body needs the support of some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition. Taking these fundamental health steps will greatly magnify the effects and benefits of any of our health-promoting efforts, including the use of certain holistic remedies.
If this is the case, it is important to assess what your needs are, and then proceed. Absolutes, resins and CO2s are concentrated essential oils and will need to be used only if that particular essential oil is not available.
The best bet when you want to make your own oils is infused oils which can be made at home, as also hydrosols which have a mild, diluted effect, of that particular essential oil.
As stated earlier, it is important to assess your requirement and then go out and purchase just one or two that you need to make a blend at home. There is no need to go out and buy a whole bunch of essential oils, which you may never use, if you are not clear what the purpose is.
When mixing your own aromatherapy oils, i.e. mixing two or more essential oils, it is important to have a balanced, harmonious blend of oils for the desired effects. This blending of oils if done perfectly is called synergy.
Items Needed for Mixing Your Own Aromatherapy Oils
The tools required to mix your own essential oils are measuring spoons, small clean bottles that can hold up to 30 ml of oil for mixing, and if the essential oils that you purchased did not come with droppers (which they usually do), then you will need droppers, one each for each oil.
Procedure for Mixing Your Own Aromatherapy Oils
The process of mixing your own essential oil is as described below. This process will give you a 2.5 % dilution.
For a blend of 1% dilution, the same process is to be followed. However the quantities will change. Mix 4 drops of essential oils with about 20 ml of carrier oils.
This type of diluted blend is best for children upwards of 3 years to 10 years, and also for pregnant women.
