    What dilution is right for essential oil massage blends?

    by Andrea Butje on March 27, 2017

    When I make essential oil Massage blends, I usually stick to about a 2% dilution.

    2% Dilution

    • 1 oz (30 ml) — 10 to 12 drops

It has no scent of its own, so it holds the pure aroma of whatever you infuse into it. If you infuse it with balsam fir absolute, you’ll smell balsam fir. If you infuse it with vanilla, you’ll smell vanilla.  […]

    August 08, 2016

    What does it mean to be “grounded?” You’ll probably get different answers if you ask different people! And yet most of us do have a sense of what being grounded means. We just find different language to describe it. Here are my words for what “being grounded” means: Being very present in our bodies and calm in our minds. Being grounded brings us back to the now, so we’re not wrapped up in thoughts of the past or the future.  […]
