ESSENTIAL OIL BLENDING WITH RELATIONSHIP

Blending essential oil formulas and making natural remedies begins with a life force connection and clear purpose between myself and the plants. I start with a quiet and gentle inquiry of what I seek to create and its healing purpose. My approach is always holistic (mind, body, spirit, emotion, and earth). There is never a right or wrong way to blend essential oils except for safety guidelines and quality. The approach is personal and the journey is all about trusting the process. When I become an empty vessel I can communicate with the plants and hear what it is they are expressing. I prefer Moss Botanicals blends to be therapeutic and smell beautiful so they can be worn as a natural body perfume and the healthy benefits are still available. Less is more with essential oils but synergy is key. I like between 3-5 essential oils (you can always add more later) but this is the best place to start. I find it creates a deeper relationship with the plants and how they are working together. A top, middle, and base note harmonizes the blend. However, sometimes I may leave a note out. For example  Let Go has cypress (Cupressus sepervirens) a middle note, frankincense (Boswelia carteri) a base note, and rose (Rosa damascena) a middle note. I approached this blend from a mental /emotional / spiritual /earthly place following the death of my grandparents and family turmoil. Rose is one of the highest frequency essential oils akin to matters of the heart and divine connection. Cypress is associated with death being planted around cemeteries throughout antiquity. Frankincense is revered for its sacred rites and psychological support. The depth and character of these revered essential oils coalesced without a top note. If this had been an injury or a cold I probably would have started from a different place depending on the person, the situation, medical conditions, age, environment, sensitivity, attraction to particular aromas, etc etc. Essential oils work on the mind, the body, and the spirit simultaneously. I believe reverence for the plants and the connection to the Earth imparts the highest healing in every blend along with your unique essence and form. Blends can be built from the base note on up or they can be intuitively crafted starting with one particular essential oil and build from there. Use quality essential oils, always dilute and follow safety guidelines.
