Dream up any number of scent combinations to suit every mood, room and occasion. Essential oils are grouped into scent types - floral, woody, menthol, herbal and citrus as well as scent notes - 'top', 'middle' and 'base', which when combined create a well-balanced fragrance that lift the mood and calm the mind. To capture the essence of nature's goodness try blending florals and citrus scents, or menthol and woody oils together to create a harmonious fragrance.
Ideally your essential oil blend contains a top, middle and base note, allowing for a balanced blend that is pleasing to the senses. A top note is a light and subtle scent that evaporates quickly. While the middle note makes up the bulk of the fragrance, with the scent becoming apparent under the top note. Finally the base note is the heaviest scent and the slowest to disperse.
Creating unique essential oil combinations is simple as following the tips listed below:
Create your favourite scent blend by mixing Natio's essential oils to help de-stress, relieve pain, refresh the body and calm the mind. When mixing oils, woody scents and citrus fragrances always blend well together. Stronger scents such as Peppermint and Patchouli can overpower a scent blend, however this is easily remedied with a hint of Lemon or Lavender. Blending oils is similar to cooking, with practice you will gain confidence with personal scent preferences and combinations.
Essential Oils don't always need to be mixed together to create a pleasing fragrance, they can be enjoyed as a single aromatic scent. If you are unsure about mixing Essential Oils yourself, Natio has taken the guesswork out of mixing oils with its eight Essential Oil Blends, each featuring multiple essential oils carefully curated for you to enjoy.
