4 Essential Oil Blends to Try

I started using essential oils for a year, but I have quickly fallen in love with them. Mixing them makes me feel like a chemist. It’s fun! Most of my essential oils are from Woolzies, with a few from Young Living and Saje.

As a beginner, I only have a small collection because I didn’t want to spend too much money on essential oils. I only keep some of the most popular ones in my basket, and on some rare occasions (when they go on sale!), I might buy a special scent. I do find they do most of the work. These are the ones I keep handy:

  • Lavender
  • Lemon
  • Peppermint
  • Eucalyptus
  • Tea tree

The recipes below are mostly a mixture of these five oils. They are a combination of me researching what oil is beneficial for what and me playing around until I find a blend I like. Since these recipes only require you to own a handful of options, don’t worry if you only have limited selections or don’t want to invest a lot of money in them!

1. Morning Joy Recipe Blend

I use this blend in the morning, especially when I wake up with brain fog. The smell of the Morning Joy is refreshing and gets me feeling positive for the day.

  • 2 drops of lemon
  • 3 drops of peppermint
  • 2 drops of eucalyptus

2. Mental Clarity Recipe Blend

My terrible sleep cycle lately has caused me to have a hard time focusing. I use Mental Clarity to help me concentrate when working from home and studying for school at night.

  • 3 drops of peppermint
  • 2 drops of rosemary
  • 1 drop of eucalyptus

3. Muscle Tension Relief Recipe Blend

I am a young soul in an old body. I have muscle tensions like neck soreness, migraines, back pain all over me. It’s mostly rooted in work stress, bad posture, and dance. (I dance 2-3 times a week) This blend is meant to relax and help soothe my muscle.

  • 3 drops of lavender
  • 2 drops of peppermint
  • 2 drops of tea tree

4. Evening Calm Recipe Blend

I usually use this after dinner when I need to start winding down. The Evening Calm relaxes me, and ease me into my night routine.

  • 3 drops of lavender
  • 2 drops of eucalyptus
  • 2 drops of cedarwood
  • (sometimes I add a drop of cinnamon if I’m feeling fancy)

Final words

These are the blends I have been using a lot. I still do a lot of different blending to see if I’ll discover new recipes I enjoy. I’ll do a part 2 when I have new ones to share.

I’d love to know what your favourite brand and essential oils are. I am a beginner, so I’m still learning about the world of oils. Also, if you have any blend suggestions, please comment below!

    1. The blend works quite well for me! Lavender relaxes my mind and body, while Peppermint’s menthol effect helps alleviate tension. As for Tea Tree, there’s a review article from Asian Pacific Journal of Tropical Biomedicine that suggests it could relieve muscle inflammation.

      But do keep in mind, if your pain is very intense, then I find the essential oil alone won’t do much, because the root problem will still need to be solved through proper treatments like massage or stretching.

  2. Thanks a lot for the recipes! I usually don’t blend my essential oils, but your ideas really made me want to try, and I have pretty much the same ones as you! 😊 The only time I did it was in the winter where I blended a bit of orange and cinnamon essential oils, and my room was filled with a wonderful christmassy scent!

      Yeah I used to only do one oil at a time as well until I did a yoga class and the teacher blended the scent and it was so refreshing! That’s when I started to try blending πŸ˜ƒ My current fav is the Morning Joy β˜€οΈ
