These are the favoured blends that I have discovered. Some essential oil combinations just don’t go together. Here is a guide to show which oils favour each other generally. You might like some different combinations so remember to enjoy experimenting.

Clickable links take you to the product page to make ordering easy. All these oils are available but are still being uploaded. If what you want is not on the product pages, please email or message us on the contact page and we will quote you and get it for you.

Check the safety guidelines especially if you are pregnant, epileptic, or have any serious health condition.
