Create aromatic fragrances and enjoy the therapeutic benefits of aromatherapy by blending essential oils at home. Use the recipes below to make a massage or body oil, or omit the oil the recipe calls for and blend the essential oils in 1 ounce jojoba oil to make a perfume. As you mix each blend, start by adding a single drop of each oil. Sniff as you add each drop, and observe how it changes the blend. If you feel adventurous, alter proportions to your liking.

To avoid cross-contamination among your essential oils, use separate droppers or rinse the dropper in vodka or pure grain alcohol and dry it between scents.
