Im really confused about the top,middle and base notes.I mean when blending,do I have to put the eo in roller bottle in order? Does it have to be,the base note first and then comes the middle and the top? I really dont understand please help.Thank you
Hi Anna, there are no specific rules when blending your essential oils however I prefer to start with the base notes, then add the middle notes and finally the top notes. I also use less of the base notes as these are heavier and often more overpowering than the top and middle notes. See what works best for you though as everyone is different and it’s about your own creativity when creating your own essential oil blends. I hope that helps.
