Like the mythical Red Phoenix, I love essential oils. I love the aroma, I love that I can use them to balance my health and my life.
I am very lucky to be able to study Aromatherapy. I want to make all the recipes I have come across in studying Aromatherapy. I use many of the recipes found in my manual and in the books I have on my bookshelf. I do not think a day goes by that I do not use an essential oil for something. In fact, I have an energetic blend mixed specifically for the emotional and energetic qualities of the oils.

Test #1: 2% ratio (for 1-ounce of carrier oil):
I have wanted to put together a blend of Neroli, Ylang Ylang, and Sweet Orange for a while – this is a good blend for the end of the day, for a relaxing bath and/or massage. Using the 2% ratio for 1-ounce of carrier oil, I first made a synergistic blend and did the patch test with the blend on my right inner elbow.
