Aromatherapy Oils

When creating Aromatherapy blends, essential oils are used. This gives blends therapeutic properties as well as a scent.  Aroma therapists usually blend oils using a similar method to that used to create perfumes. Normally only three or four essential oils are used in a blend and these will be comprised of at least one each of top, middle and base notes.  This can make a blend smell more pleasant or balanced but it also means that the blend will have a synergy since different oils can be combined to create a blend with more therapeutic properties than that of a single essential oil.  Blends can be made to help with a variety of symptoms or problems because of this.
