Essential Oils Blending Basics

Essential oils products Revised

Note: The Essential Oils mentioned in this article are the Nature’s Sunshine EOs. However, you can use other Authentic Essential Oils.

Because of their unique natural properties and powerful individual benefits, blending essential oils can be a bit of both art and science. But not to worry. There’s not really a “wrong” way to blend, and with Authentic Essential Oils experimentation is half the fun!

Getting Started

Oil blends are typically created for a specific purpose. Some are worn as perfume while others are created for boosting feelings of energy and cheer, or bringing a sense of calm. Step 1 for blending beginners is deciding what you’d like to accomplish. Are you blending for fragrance or blending for benefits?

 

Personal Perfume

Wearable blends used as perfume are built on personal preferences of top, middle and base “notes”. (“Notes” are determined by how quickly an Authentic Oil’s scent fades after being exposed to oxygen.)

Top notes are the lightest scents; the first ones we smell and the first to evaporate. Top notes are usually derived from flowers, leaves, and flowering herbs. Examples of top notes include Organic Lemon, Lime, Bergamot, Eucalyptus, Peppermint, and Ravintsara.

Base notes are deeper. Their fragrances last the longest and they are often more “earthy” in scent. These oils ground the entire blend and are often derived from trees, roots, and barks. Some favorite base notes are Patchouli, Sandalwood, Cedarwood, Organic Frankincense and Organic Neroli.

Middle notes bring harmony. They balance the top notes with deeper base notes and bind all the fragrances together. Middle notes are most often derived from whole herbs and spices and include Roman Chamomile, Jasmine, Rose, Tea Tree, Organic Ylang Ylang, Cinnamon Leaf, and Clary Sage.

 

Blends with Benefits

If you’re blending for support with a physical or emotional need, choosing oils from the same aroma category is a great way to start. First, research the oils most recommended for your desired outcome. Since Lavender is often recommended to help with feeling calm, use Organic Lavender to start a blend for use before bed. Peppermint helps with feeling more alert and mentally aware, so it’s a great choice for blends that help with focus or tension. Once you’ve identified one core oil, choose two or three additional oils from the same aroma categories and mix and match.

Floral – Organic Lavender, Organic Geranium, Jasmine, Organic Ylang Ylang, Rose, Neroli

Citrus – Grapefruit, Lemon, Organic Orange, Bergamot, Red Mandarin, Lemongrass

Woody – Pine Needle, Cedarwood, Cypress, Sandalwood, Organic Frankincense, Wild Myrrh

Herbaceous – Sweet Marjoram, Wild Rosemary, Clary Sage, Wild Oregano, Wild Thyme, Tea Tree

Spicy – Clove Bud, Cinnamon Leaf, Peppermint

 

Ready, Set, Go!

To start creating a brand new “uniquely you” blend start with small amounts and don’t be afraid to play! Choose an oil to “anchor” your blend (lavender for a restful blend for example) then experiment with additional oils to add specific benefits, as fragrance variation, or just to incorporate your favorites. We recommend starting with three oils in a blend then growing to five and even up to nine.

Start blending in very small batches to save ingredients during experimentation. Try 3 drops of your anchor oil or a favorite top note in a glass roll-on bottle, then add 5 drops of a middle note and 2 drops of a base note. Allow the blend to rest for 24 – 48 hours then give it a try. Smell it straight from the bottle. Apply carrier oil and try it on your skin. If it’s a keeper, fill the remainder of your bottle with Carrier Oil and you’re ready to apply. If you think it needs a boost, add an additional middle note and try it again. Vary the number of drops, the number of oils, and the oils themselves until you find a mix you absolutely love.

Does Negative Thoughts Dominate your Self Talk?

Self Talk2

 

Your subconscious mind is very powerful, affecting not only your physical body but your emotions, responses and attitudes and of course, your thoughts. There are hundreds of examples that demonstrate this and we know that the subconscious mind has the power to manifest into reality exactly what we want or what we don’t want to become! 

The subconscious mind can set into motion the required energy pattern and, in fact, can activate all types of energy patterns. For example, if you are after health and healing or on a completely different path and looking for wealth, prosperity and success, it makes no difference. The subconscious mind has the power to activate the energy pattern that you require. Never underestimate your own Inner Power.

The key to tapping into this tremendous power lies in the messages we send to the subconscious mind, so we must make sure to use the correct language and be aware of how we communicate internally. Most people do not consciously think about or even attempt this. Rather, they just let the mind wander and carry on with incessant internal chatter about everything and anything that might be happening in their lives. Most of such idle mind chatter is unfocused and often quite self sabotaging and destructive! 

Due to past programming, the messages that come from our subconscious minds are often more negative than positive, resulting in feelings of insecurity, inferiority and guilt unless we make a concerted effort to recognize and counteract these feelings. 

 

Self Talk

 

The good news is that we have the power to change things.

We CAN change the way we feel simply by changing the way we think. 

The first step is to be honest with yourself and take responsibility by acknowledging that it is really ourselves who cause feelings of anger, fear, inadequacy and guilt. We can actually reprogram ourselves and change our perspective to be Balanced. Balanced meaning that we do have both positive and negative potential energy. Too much negativity throws us off balance and we have the negative, hurtful self talk. Too much positive and this still throws us off balance as we lie to ourselves, create a false reality, we see the world through those ‘rose colored’ glasses instead of looking at the whole picture. Being Balanced is acknowledging that both negative and positive energies are just a part of our existence and not letting either one get so much attention that it throws us off balance. 

The words and sentences you choose to use, even casually, will enter and take form in the subconscious mind. The subconscious mind takes everything you say literally and does not differentiate between positive and negative thoughts. It is vital that you use words that relate to your sense of self-esteem, self-worth and Balance as this is what your subconscious mind understands. 

 

Begin right now and stop using phrases and words that work against you. Here are a few examples:

I can’t do it.
I’m too old for this.
It’s impossible!
I’m just a born loser.
Why does this always happen to me?
I’ll never get that job.

 

Get the idea? We tend to say such things when we are upset, frustrated or annoyed. Even if your remark is just casual, it gets picked up by the subconscious mind that never sleeps and is always paying attention.

Now that you understand the power of the subconscious mind and the energy that gets created, you can change your internal dialogue and put an end to idle off balanced mental chatter. Begin today to make a conscious effort in this regard and catch yourself from using any off balancing self talk. Make it a habit to use Self Empowering statements and you will see an immediate improvement in your outlook and results.

 

I CAN2

This works! Start now and then let me know how you are doing!

CBD helps with Sleep and Insomnia.

Complications_of_insomnia

Insomnia In The U.S. is still a pressing Public Health Problem.

According to a recent Huffington Post article by Catherine Pearson, “Sleep is a major problem for many Americans, according to a new report that acts as a kind of “state-of-insomnia” in the U.S. The review, published online by the medical journal The Lancet, finds that nearly a quarter of adults are unhappy with their sleep patterns, while up to 10 percent meet the criteria for full-fledged insomnia, putting them at a greater risk for depression, hypertension and diabetes.”

It’s easy to joke about this issue… but it’s no joke. Why do so many of us have trouble falling asleep or sleeping through the night? Some say it’s our stress-filled lifestyles. Some say it’s a by-product of anxiety. Some say we’ve become dependent on alcohol or over-the-counter drugs to help us sleep. The truth is, using these crutches may actually interfere with the deep “REM” sleep that we all need for rest and recuperation.

 

Sleep Support Oral Spray Banner

 

 

CTFO’s Sleep Support Oral Spray uses a combination of CBD and Melatonin to help you fall asleep naturally and without drugs or alcohol. Both of these natural ingredients have been shown to relax you and help you fall asleep. Some of our customers even say the CBD drops alone help them fall asleep.

With better quality sleep, we can all have more peaceful nights and better overall health.
