Understanding Essential Oil Categories

To begin blending essential oils, it's important to familiarize yourself with the categories they fall into. Essential oils are typically grouped based on their aromatic properties and therapeutic benefits. The main categories include:

  • Citrus (e.g., Lemon, Orange, Grapefruit)
  • Floral (e.g., Jasmine, Lavender, Rose)
  • Herbaceous (e.g., Basil, Rosemary, Thyme)
  • Spicy (e.g., Cinnamon, Clove, Ginger)
  • Woodsy (e.g., Cedarwood, Pine, Sandalwood)
  • Earthy (e.g., Patchouli, Vetiver, Oakmoss)
  • Resinous (e.g., Myrrh, Frankincense, Copal)
  • Minty (e.g., Peppermint, Spearmint, Eucalyptus)

Blending Basics: How to Mix Essential Oils

When blending essential oils, it's essential to consider not only the scents but also the therapeutic benefits you want to achieve. Keep the following guidelines in mind when creating your blends:

  1. Start with a clear intention and focus on what you desire from your blend. For example, do you want to promote sleep, reduce stress, or increase focus?
  2. Choose oils that complement each other in terms of scent and therapeutic properties. Refer to the Essential Oils Blending Chart below for guidance on which oils pair well together.
  3. Start small, especially when experimenting with new blends. Mix just a few drops of each oil in a separate container before adding more to balance out the scents and properties.
  4. Always use high-quality, 100% pure essential oils. At Oshu Oils, our Artisan Essential Earth Oils are expertly crafted by our team of aromacologists to ensure the highest quality and efficacy.
