You can make your own massage oil by adding six to eight drops of essential oil to each ounce of carrier oil, such as sweet almond, apricot kernel or another light vegetable oil. This amount is the total number of drops to use even if you add more than one essential oil. Blending several essential oils together is an art you develop through experience as your nose learns how the oils relate to each other. Begin by limiting your combinations to two to four oils. Once you’re comfortable blending, take aromatherapy to the next level by creating a different custom-designed blend for each person.
