Instructions to make blend or roll-on:

  1. Take out the bottle that you will be using. We recommend a 5 ml or 15 ml amber glass bottle with the euro dropper cap.
  2. Start with your base note oils and work up to the top notes.
  3. Use a plastic pipette to draw out the essential oil and add drops into bottle.
  4. Repeat step 3 using a fresh pipette for each oil.
  5. If it is a diffuser blend you will not cut it with anything, if it is a 10 ml roller ball, you will add the drops from the recipe and top off bottle with your carrier oil of choice.
  6. For 5 ml diffuser blend, multiply drops by 5, and for 15 ml bottle diffuser blend, multiply by 15.

NOTE: 20 drops = 1 ml
