Q and A Big Name Essential Oil Copycat Blends

Hey guys, on February 10th 2016 I wrote about some copycat blend recipes I ran into online and pretty much put them all on one post. BIG NAME ESSENTIAL OIL COPYCAT BLENDS If you click that link it will take you to the page where all the copy cat recipes are listed. It will be edited soon.

I got a lot of feedback about it all positive with the exception of one person being very angry over my posting of the blends. It was an odd long comment detailing how I was inconsiderate of the big name companies. I feel the need to say again, I chose to buy or not buy from certain brands based on a few things… I”m not fond of MLM companies but to each their own. I recently had to omit the use of all Piping Rock Essential Oils as they’ve come out to have synthetic ingredients :-/ bummer. I’m not going to post about which oils to get on this post but if you’d like more info on that let me know.

Moving on, I sourced the blend recipes from a few different places, images, some having no sources so I never claimed to have come up with any of them but I did try most of them out and was happy with those that I tried. The original reason I wanted to find all these recipes is that a ton of these blends are pricey and if I can make them for a better price with quality oils I’d rather do that.

With that, I got a bunch of questions that I attempted to answer but my answers didn’t show up along with the question and all that was visible was jumbled up info. So, I plan to post the main issues and or questions here and my answers to them as well as the request for other oil blend recipes. If you have any of the ones requested let me know if not, I plan to try to find them myself also! Exciting haha but yea I’m trying to do a good follow up here.

A possible source for some of these recipes:
I think these are probably from the Safe Use of Edens Garden Essential Oils (SUEGO) group on facebook. I haven’t studied the ingredients, but they have recipes for all of these blends there! – Karin

Main question: What size bottle are these blends for?

My answer: Honestly nothing specified! I found through trial and error that it was either a 10 ml to 15 ml standard EO bottle size. I’ve stuck with the 15 ml size and those I’ve tried seem to work out nicely.

Second Big Question: Are these just EO drops or are they mixed with a carrier oil.

My answer: I used Almond Oil as a carrier oil. I’m sure you could use others but what I did was put all the asked drops then add carrier oil to top it off. Not very scientific I know but again with some I’ve tried they seemed to come out pretty close to the real deal.

Someone answer this for me because I still don’t know myself: Anybody know if the vanilla in the Stress Away recipe is an essential oil? I have not found it in by itself.-Eden

Another question I need help answering: What is the 2 drops of cocoa in the whisper blend? I cannot find a cocoa essential oil so I don’t understand what it it. Can someone help? – Garnette
