Top 25 Best Essential Oil Blends, Recipes and Combinations

Looking for the best essential oil blends?  In this article I will show you how to easily and quickly create your favorite essential oil recipes, blends and combinations.

Diffusing essential oil blends is refreshing for your mind, body, and soul.

And they make your house smell amazing!

Essential oils are volatile and naturally-occurring compounds that are found in fruits, roots, seeds, stems, etc. and they give each plant a distinct fragrance.

You can diffuse one essential oil at a time, or blend a few together to enjoy the benefits.

In today’s blog post I’ll be going through the process of blending essential oils and the top 25 essential oil blends that I enjoy the most.

Let’s get started!

Why Should You Use Essential Oil Blends?

Blending essential oils is all about making your sense of smell happy.

Did you know that the human nose can identify 1 trillion scents?

Blending essential oils and having fun with them can help you create your own scent which can be therapeutic for you.

Blending essential oils can be an activity that gives you sheer pleasure!

Here are the advantages of blending essential oils:

  • Mixing 2-3 essential oils with the same properties can help achieve their benefits quickly
  • The right blends can help you relax and unwind
  • Blends are also known to increase one’s concentration and focus on work

You get the idea, right?

How to Blend Essential Oils

In this section, I’ll teach you how to blend essential oils the right way.

Let’s begin!

What Scents and Aromas do You Like?

We all have unique preferences.

And when you’re creating an essential oil blend for yourself, you should keep in mind your unique preferences.

And, don’t be shy to test new things out!

Here are a few scents you can pick from:

Best essential oil blends and fragrances
The Best Essential Oil Blends can be made from these six fragrance groups

I personally love the spicy fragrances.

Let me know in the comments section which is your favorite!

Moving on…

It’s All About That (Top, Middle, and) Base!

I’m not talking about music here.

So, there are three ‘notes’ in a blend:

  • The top note
  • The middle note
  • The base note

These notes are determined by the amount of time they take to evaporate.

This means…

The ‘top note’ is the quickest to evaporate while the middle and the base notes take a longer amount of time.

So, here’s the deal:

  • Top notes take an hour (or two hours) to evaporate
    Popular top notes include basil, spearmint, lemongrass, orange, etc.
  • Middle notes take between two to four hours to evaporate
    Popular base notes are tea tree, nutmeg, chamomile, jasmine, etc.
  • The base may take a few days to evaporate!
    These include cedarwood, balsam, oakmoss, etc.

Test The Blend!

In this step that you can ‘test’ your notes out and see whether or not they work together.

All you’ll need for this are:

  • Some cotton swabs!
  • Your essential oils
  • An eye dropper

Put one drop from each of your three essential oils onto a cotton swab and hold the swab (away from your nose!) and swirl it in the air.

So you like what you smell?

If not, then make changes until you find the perfect fit!

Let’s Do the Mix!

After you essential oil recipe has passed the sniff test, it’s time to start mixing!

You’ll need the following things in this step:

  • An eye dropper
  • A clean mixing bowl
  • A glass vial

There are two guidelines you can follow for the mix:

  1. The 123 Rule
    This one says that for each drop of your base note, you should add 2 drops of your middle note and three drops of the top note.

  1. The 30-50-20 Rule
    This rule suggests that your mixture should be:

    1. 30% top note
    2. 50% middle note
    3. 20% base note

All you’ve got to do is to add the essential oils to the mixing bowl using an eye dropper and then transfer the mixture to a glass vial!

Storage!

Essential oils are highly volatile compounds.

After making your blend, make sure to let it sit for a few days and store it in a glass bottle.

That’s because essential oils can react with other materials.

How to Use Your Essential Oil Blend: The Things You’ll Need

Before you try out your new blend, there are a few things that you’ll need.

Let’s take a look.

I feel that you should diffuse 8-10 drops of your essential oil combinations to get the best effect.

But…

Keep in mind that each and every blend is unique.

So, it is always better to add a small amount first to test out the fragrance and then make changes accordingly.

11 Essential Oils for Back Pain Relief and How to Use Them

In this section, I’ll go through the best essential oils for back pain relief.

I’ve picked out the oils that have been tried and tested so that I can recommend the best ones that actually work effectively.

Let’s take a look!

Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender essential oil is known for its sweet smell and numerous healing benefits.

This essential oil has an analgesic and anti inflammatory effect that helps one get relief from body aches and sore muscles.

And, you can reap its benefits by just inhaling the oil as well!

However, I would also recommend that you use a few drops of it and apply it onto the affected area for the best results.

Marjoram Essential Oil

Marjoram essential oil eases the joints, is soothing, and warming as well!

Sounds like a great essential oil for back pain, right?

One of the properties of the Marjoram essential oil is that it is anti inflammatory as well.

So, I feel that a 3% concentration of this oil will help you with your back ailment!

Moving on…

Eucalyptus Essential Oil

Eucalyptus essential oil is known for its healing properties all over the world.

This strong smelling essential oil is extracted from the bark of its tree and this powerful essential oil provides relief from:

  • Sinus congestions
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Body aches

Eucalyptus essential oil is an all around good choice!

I would recommend that you use a 2% or 3% concentration of this with a good carrier oil such as coconut or jojoba oil.

Basil Essential Oil

If you have tight muscles, you should use basil essential oil to relieve them.

This essential oil is also great if you want to to get relief from back pain. Just apply it and massage it in on your spine, neck, and lower back for the best results.

My mum has had a good experience with this essential oil!

Let me know in the comments section as to how your experience has been!

On to the next one…

Chamomile Essential Oil

Chamomile essential oil is known to treat headaches, relieve abdominal pains, joint pains, PMS, etc.

And, it is also known to relieve back pain!

I would recommend that you use it with olive or coconut oil at 3% concentration for the best results.

Peppermint Essential Oil

The major component of the peppermint essential oil is menthol which has an antispasmodic effect.

This essential oil is known to treat several conditions such as:

  • Indigestion
  • Stomach ache
  • Back ache
  • Migraine

I feel that the best companion for peppermint essential oil is almond oil (although some people might disagree!).

Honestly…

I’ve personally used this in 3% concentration after back days at the gym!

Moving on.

Rosemary Essential Oil

Rosemary essential oil is extracted from the culinary herb and is best known for its memory enhancement effect.

Rosemary has analgesic as well as an anti-inflammatory properties as well, making it a great essential oil for back pains.

I suggest you use a 3% concentration of this with any good carrier oil of your choice.

Don’t worry!

If you’re confused, I’ve listed out some great carrier oil options here.

Juniper Essential Oil

Extracted from berries, juniper essential oil treats a lot of extremely painful conditions like:

  • Colitis
  • Hemorrhoids
  • Dysmenorrhea

Mixing Juniper essential oil with a good carrier oil such as olive oil can help you get relief from back pains.

Hold on… there’s something you need to know!

But, you need to keep in mind to use this at 1% or 2% concentration for mild pain, because the oil is very potent.

On to the next one…

Cayenne Essential Oil

Cayenne essential oil is extracted from the seeds of the hot and spicy Cayenne pepper and helps relieve severe pain and is used to treat severe cases of shingles.

Naturally, you can feel the healing and relieving properties of the Cayenne essential oil in the case of back pain as well.

But, with this essential oil, you need to keep in mind that you only need a small concentration of it.

So, a 2% concentration will go a long way!

Great, right!?

Wintergreen Essential Oil

Wintergreen essential oil is extracted from the evergreen North American shrub, Gaultheria procumbens. This plant has been used for pain relief by the tribal native Americans for years.

This essential oil is used to treat skeletal pains as well as neuralgia.

And it also helps relieve back pain. You can use it with a good carrier oil, such as coconut oil in a 2% or 3% concentration.

On to the last one on my list!

Ginger Essential Oil

You might have heard how wonderful Ginger essential oil is for the digestive system.

That’s true!

But, what most people don’t know is that the Ginger essential oil is also amazing for pain relief.

And, it works really well when applied topically!

I would suggest you use a 3% concentration of this with a good carrier oil of your choice.

And, keep in mind that the ginger essential oil had no harmful effects when used for an extended period of time!

Great, right?

 How to Use Essential Oils for Back Pain Relief!

In my own experience, I’ve seen that people tend to buy the right essential oil, but, they really don’t know how to use them the right way!

In this section of the article, I’ll teach you just that.

As you may already know, essential oils can be mainly used in two ways, like:

  • Diffusing essential oils for inhalation
  • Topically applying essential oils

Now, in the case of using essential oils for back pain relief, I recommend that you topically apply essential oils.

But, hold on!

You need to use a carrier oil for that.

What Are Carrier Oils?

Carrier oils are basically non-volatile oils (such as coconut oil, olive oil, etc.) which usually are:

  • Neutral smelling
  • Obtained from vegetarian sources

Since essential oils are volatile and evaporate rather quickly, they need to be diluted down with the help of a carrier oil.

Why Should I Use a Carrier Oil!?

If you try to apply essential oils directly onto your skin, you’ll find that they are too strong and potent to be used alone.

And, carrier oils are the perfect companions for essential oils as they:

  • Help in reducing the concentration of the essential oil
  • Cause no change in the healing properties of that essential oil

Using a Carrier Oil

Now that I’ve covered why you should use a carrier oil, it’s time for me to teach you how to apply your essential oils.

Let’s begin!

When you are looking to dilute your essential oils with the help of a carrier oil, make sure to dilute your oil either 2% or 3%:

  • 2% dilution is mainly used for adults and it means that you should use one drop of essential oil per teaspoon of carrier oil
  • 3% dilution is used for pain and muscle injury and you should use two drops of essential oils per teaspoon of carrier oil

I would suggest that you start by using a 2% dilution and work your way up to the 3%.

Moving on…

Summing Up

I hope that this selection provides you with a several choices of essential oils for back pain relief.

Keep in mind that unlike modern medicine, essential oils work a little slowly, so be patient and the results will come!

And, never use an essential oil on your body by itself!

You may do more harm than good. That is why I recommend that you use either a 2% or a 3% concentration of essential oil for the best results.
