    Some of my Favorite One's to mix half and half are Lavender with Orange, Spearmint with Eucalyptus, and Patchouli and orange, Also love love love Lavender Peppermint and Rosemary mixed 3 :2: 1 ounce you have to play around and see what smells good to you. People are always mixing Sandalwood and ylang ylang, must be popular! and I think from this list I'm going to try Clary sage, and rose geranium can't hurt! Lavender probably goes with everything. I did try lavender patchouli oakmoss and rose geranium once and hated it!! smelled great till it aged.
    chamomile is great for a Rosecea face bar. I cn' afford the EO so mine is ground dried chamomile out of my herb garden..

    any of the EO in my opinion should be mixed with a little oil for most uses. Now I use tea tree oil straight but it can cause a rash etc. if you put it right under your nose.straigth so mixing with a healing butter is better Eucalypsus I mix with other EO's /witchhazel /vingar and water for a spray to use for mosquitos

    Oh Karen you have to be specific with me I have too much Rattling around up there

    I use Lavender directly on the skin for burns , not where the skin is Broken open, but on any blistered or red burn.
    Lavender applied a drop on each Temple then rub accross the forehead with sweeping strokes to ease a headache, I do this one a lot for myself and the hubby.
    Lavender mixed in with Caster Oil and used as a gentle rub in on very Painful back muscles. When I first started driving school bus daily I tested this one It makes a huge difference. I have Fibromyalgia, so Muscle pain and Headaches plague me daily.

    Tea tree is one that should be used in a carrier oil, unless you are trying to Kill skin tags, moles , fungus,

    We use Infused Jewelweed oil for bug bites stops itch on contact!

    Peppermint I use on my Wrist during a headache so I can lift my wrist and sniff, that plus the lavender does the trick . Also why I make the lave, mint, rosemary soap It releives my headaches as well.
    If you are going to use something on your face, such as Clary Sage, or bergamot you should use a carrier oil.

    Carrier oil, such as Olive oil, Almond oil, (I'll list others here later) : )

    Rosemary would be a good one to put on Castor oil, or in Emu oil with MSM for arthritis. of course that's what they put in Bengay! : )

    for sinus infections, you should place the EO your using on a muslim cloth for sniffing, or in a vapor.

    Clary Sage of course is for Eye washing.
    more to follow

    I am using eucalyptus and Jojoba for bug bites now and it's doing the trick pretty good. Keeping the redness down and swelling too.. Itch is almost non existant.. k
     
  6. I started making soap just this year and hope to have a better year next year. My friend got interested in it so when we got the milk we started playing around with scents of oil and came up with a pretty good manly soap , has cypress, Balsam fir, and cedarwood oils. Natural herbs were nettle and sage. I love it! Also came up with Ginger, Chamomile. :)yum.
