In one of my earlier posts I mentioned that, other than cooking and baking, a keen interest of mine is making essential oil blends for perfume.
When I first began to learn about essential oils, certain ones stood out ~ lavender being an important oil because not only does it smell amazing it bridges other scents together very well.
As a “bridge” note, it helps lighter and heavier-scented oils to blend well together. Although having a very distinct aroma, I find that it isn’t overpowering and its addition makes for a more well-rounded fragrance.
So as the warm weather hits and I’m doing a bit less cooking, I turn my focus to blending these lovely oils together and create little bottles of happy scent-sations.
