General Information about Blending Essential Oils

Size Conversions:
3 teaspoons (tsp) = 1 tablespoon (tbsp)
2 tablespoons (tbsp) = 1 ounce (oz)
6 teaspoons (tsp) = 1 ounce (oz)
10 milliliter (ml) = 1/3 oz.
15 milliliter (ml) = 1/2 oz.
30 milliliter (ml) = 1 oz.
10 milliliter (ml) = approximately 300 drops


Generally, two drops of Essential Oil should be used per tsp of Carrier Oil (but follow individual recipes if available) and it takes about one to two ounces of carrier oil for a full body massage.  Any natural carrier oil except mineral oil is fine to use when preparing a massage blend.  There are lots to choose from and each has its own properties.  For most applications, we prefer our own Massage Base, which is a combination of Sweet Almond, Grapeseed and Jojoba carrier oils.
