Just as all of the chemical constituents in a single oil work together to provide more complete therapeutic benefits, blending oils can add the health benefits of multiple oils together for a synergistic effect. When oils are blended, the variety of constituents present considerably increases. Together, multiple oils can complement one another and enhance the overall beneficial properties. Oils blends with known health benefits are produced under the direction and guidance of experts familiar with how the blending process alters the chemical profile of the oils. However, oils can also be effectively blended in your own home based on your personal preferences and desired benefit. It is important to keep in mind that blending oils may alter their aroma and beneficial properties.
