  1. I’ve followed this but my mixture is still separating. What am I doing wrong or is there anything else to fix this issue?

    1. Hi Meagan – sorry to hear your having trouble with it. I’m not quite sure what could be happening other than to advise to be sure you’re using a high quality essential oil and a good carrier oil. You might try using a different carrier oil if the one you have isn’t working out for you. Other choices include almond oil, jojoba oil, or try a different fractionated coconut oil. You might need to experiment a bit to find what works best for you. If you’re using fractionated coconut oil, you’ll want to be sure you’re using fractionated coconut oil which stays liquid and not kitchen coconut oil which hardens. Also, be sure to mix well after adding the oils and carrier oil together. I hope that helps!

    Thank you so much for the wonderful information. I have been using essential oils for several years and DoTerra is my go to brand. I love your recipes. I love seeing the way others blend their own and trying them out myself.

    1. Hi Candee, You’ll need to add more oils whenever it evaporates and gets too low in the container or starts to lose the scent. You’ll know when it’s time. I’ve never had to change it. But I also live in a very dry desert environment with very low humidity so evaporation is a bigger factor for me than probably most people. Just refill with carrier oil and / or essential oil as needed. I usually add a few drops of essential oil maybe once a week or so. As far as changing the reeds, I don’t really change mine unless I change the scent for a different scent.

    1. Hi Sylvia, You’ll need to use a liquid oil. It’s possible to use another oil such as jojoba oil or grapeseed, just be sure not to use an oil that has a strong scent because the scent of that could overpower your essential oils. Organic Coconut Oil hardens in colder temperatures which makes it not ideal for this.

    1. Hi Michelle,

      You can start with around 15 – 20 drops and go from there. There isn’t a right or wrong amount. Some people like the scent to be stronger, and some people prefer it lighter so I recommend you start small and add more until you are happy with it.
