Perfume Blends

9:48 AM Posted by Jo Pedranti

Even though you want to make a perfume because it smells good you can still create the effect of the blend that fits your mood at that moment. The essential oils work in synergy which means they enhance each others properties.
For example let's take bergamot, if I  blend it with a variety of oils  I enhance different properties each time depending on the oils I  use. If I blend bergamot with tea tree I'll get an antiseptic blend.  If I blend bergamot with lavender the relaxing properties will be enhanced, since lavender is a relaxing oil and it will enhance bergamot's sedative properties. As you can see tea tree enhance bergamot's antiseptic properties.


Here are some perfume blends you can try:
