The first step in this project is to create your own custom blend of essential oils. This is where your personal taste and preferences come into play, but we have included two blends to get you started! Each recipe creates one 10 mL roller bottle.

🌿 Shop 100% pure essential oils here:

Once you’ve created your perfect blend, it’s mixed with the Hydrating Oil Base and poured into the glass roller bottle. The base is a lightweight combination of grapeseed oil, squalane oil, jojoba oil, fractioned coconut oil, rosehip seed oil, and vitamin E. It absorbs quickly into the skin, so it’s great for body oil. The roller bottle makes application quick and mess free.

    Great "how to" video!

  2. Hilary Sutherland on July 3, 2021 at 8:11 pm

    Safer/easier to have a separate pipette for each scent. You contaminated the alcohol then dipped. That’s like double dipping.

    I like Flower!!! Where’s my vodka????!!!

  4. girl38rock on July 3, 2021 at 8:14 pm

    Ooh perfume.

    If I create a scejt in a 5ml and decide to make a 4 or 16oz f it l, what’s the formula

  6. Beauty School Books Robyn J. Smith on July 3, 2021 at 8:17 pm

    Hi as a certified aromatherapist I would recommend home users use an eyedropper for blending. For adult face it is a total of 25 drops in 100 ml of base oil such as jojoba, olive oil. For body applications, it is 50 drops in 100ml of base oil. Therefore a safe amount in a 10 ml roller bottle use 10ml of base oil also known as a carrier oil. Then just add a total of 5 drops of essential oil However, in healthy adults making perfume you could add up to 8 drops of essential oil in your 10 ml roller bottle. Note the drippolater in the top of essential oil bottles is not a safe way to drop oils into a blend as oils all have different consistencies some drop out very fast and some drop out slowly. Happy blending xxx

    I use an Anjou diffuser for my Fennel oils. I have sleep apnea. I have the 500 ML Anjou diffuser and it can last up to 8 hours. I put in about 30 drops for those 8 hours. Is it better to use distilled water for my diffuser?

  8. girl38rock on July 3, 2021 at 8:21 pm

    Seems addictive like a cooking show lol

  9. Dezarai Symmone on July 3, 2021 at 8:22 pm

    I’ve been pronouncing jojoba oil wrong this whole time LOL ❤️

  10. Jacky Jack on July 3, 2021 at 8:23 pm

    Please look into the research on Scamazon Essential Oil Scammers from Robert Pappas & Best Essential Oil from Dan Truman. Many Essential tests online are fake. And the most popular brands are adulterated. Buy direct from the company. Look at their GCMS report. I have been using fake oils for years and paying a premium price. It’s dangerous if we inhale or ingest these fakes. Such an eye opener!

  11. girl38rock on July 3, 2021 at 8:24 pm

    Tell me about ur tattoos if ur comfortable w it there interesting.

  12. Rose Washington on July 3, 2021 at 8:24 pm

    Please, please please… Get your science factual before you do these videos.. This is wayyyy to many drops of essential oils..

  13. Charlotte Little on July 3, 2021 at 8:25 pm

    This is amazing however I read you have to dilute essential oils with a 2% dilution which is like 6 drops of essential oil not 60. If its more that would really help me out!

  14. Nancy Hunja on July 3, 2021 at 8:25 pm

    What about Neem Oil?

  15. MRG PRO on July 3, 2021 at 8:26 pm

    Each bottle was contaminated by the alcohol between dippings and not dried off in between scents.

  16. Sneha Bikumalla on July 3, 2021 at 8:26 pm

    It is amazing… Thanks for the tutorial

  17. Tessie Dobey on July 3, 2021 at 8:30 pm

    Now, how can I turn these drops into ounces to add to my soaps? Do I equate 1 part with 1 tbs or tsp.?

  18. Tony El Menor on July 3, 2021 at 8:30 pm

    The way she says, “You can probably use vodka!” Lol… Minute 8:23

  19. K Norris on July 3, 2021 at 8:31 pm

    Thank you for sharing this information with us! Excellent video.

  20. Buffy Anissa on July 3, 2021 at 8:31 pm

    Is it the same with making candles?

  21. MaidClean Pro on July 3, 2021 at 8:34 pm

    great video! I cant wait to get started

  22. Jon on July 3, 2021 at 8:34 pm

    They’re actually not oils at all. They call them oils but they aint.

  23. tupai62 on July 3, 2021 at 8:35 pm

    How many percent Lemon essential oil is danger to use?

  24. Sydney Anthony on July 3, 2021 at 8:37 pm

    Thank you Bramble berry and Flower =]
    I’d like to add also some people are extra sensitive to them and may need to have better ventilation or even wear a mask!

  25. It’s Me Markie Official on July 3, 2021 at 8:38 pm

    amazing so informative .I love essential oils .As a wellness practitioner I always incorporates essential oils on my base oil when I’m doing a massage.

  26. Jodi Cool on July 3, 2021 at 8:39 pm

    all oils have a mixing ratio….guessing is dangerous

  27. Beatrice Boansi on July 3, 2021 at 8:40 pm

    Thank you are amazing.

  28. Debbie Ifeoma on July 3, 2021 at 8:41 pm

  29. Maria R on July 3, 2021 at 8:42 pm

    i have lavander essential oil, how much coconut carrier oil to use on a humidifier?

  30. Analisa Villanueva on July 3, 2021 at 8:43 pm

    hi analisa

  31. Sharla Walkin on July 3, 2021 at 8:43 pm

    Where can I find bulk or large bottle of essential oils?

  32. kowe76 on July 3, 2021 at 8:44 pm

    I wish you would give other options with amounts to use for the carrier oil (yes olive oil was mentioned, but I would like to use a few different or could I use just sweet almond oil?), instead of a product made by Bramble Berry. I find this is happening more in your CP soap videos as well. I live in Australia and the postage to get those items to us is ridiculous. There is one place in Australia that sells some of the essential oil blends, but nothing else.

  33. Yuca Fries on July 3, 2021 at 8:44 pm

    Your suggestions on how not to cross contaminate your materials is precisely how you effectively cross contaminate your materials. Use disposable pipettes and toss them after each single use. Best

  34. Amit Thakor on July 3, 2021 at 8:45 pm

    i just got his cedarwood oil and it smells so yuck…like some body massage oil…i like the smell of Bleu de chanel and thought that because it is a woody scent i would like woody fragrances like cedar…but it smells bad…i dunno how cedar actually smells but sandalwood is nice to smell and also pine smells good to me…how should i blend for a nice woody scent that smells like bleu de chanel notes?

  35. Beatrice Boansi on July 3, 2021 at 8:45 pm

    And thanks for sharing too.

  36. Veronica Kelly on July 3, 2021 at 8:48 pm

    There are NO QUESTIONS ANSWERED HERE. How dissappointing

  39. Eric Johnson on July 3, 2021 at 8:48 pm

    Hey, so the blend sounds great, but the dilution ratio seems way to high, was wondering why it’s so high? The general dilution everywhere I have seen is 2-3% for daily use on body and normally 1% for the face. When I first started with essential oils I used a recipe from MLM rep which was 40 drops of Onguard in 10ml roller bottle which I thought seemed ok since Young Living says to put one or two drops neat of Thieves on your feet. Well I used the roller ball for 7 days and it turned my soft feet into wrinkly crunchy old man feet. That’s when I started to research proper dilution ratios and learned that I should only have put 10-12 drops (15 max) now it doesn’t do that to my feet.

  40. your mirror on July 3, 2021 at 8:53 pm

    Cedar wood essential oil is my favorite. I am addicted to its aroma. It’s really calming…

  41. Apprentice Wizard & Witch Cerberus Bindweed on July 3, 2021 at 8:54 pm

    ignore the dilution ratio here people.
    As a Clinical Aromatherapist, the dilution ratio used here is not safe.
    Unless you are a clinical aromatherapist who knows their essential oil chemistry, you should not exceed 2.5% dilution.
    For a 10ml roller bottle, that would be 10 drops of essential oil.

  42. Indigenous Chippewa on July 3, 2021 at 8:58 pm

    Dipping your dropper nor pipette is not cleaning it. It needs to be washed, you have crossed contaminated it.

  43. Hailey Morrison on July 3, 2021 at 8:58 pm

    We’re do you get your Carrier and essential Oils from

  44. girl38rock on July 3, 2021 at 8:58 pm
