Instructions to make blend or roll-on:
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. Start with your base note oils and work up to the top notes. Use a plastic pipette to draw out the essential oil and add drops into bottle. Repeat step 3 using a fresh pipette for each oil. 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. For 5 ml diffuser blend, multiply drops by 5, and for 15 ml bottle diffuser blend, multiply by 15.
