Everything you need to get started in aromatherapy!

April 20, 2017

There are many ways to use essential oils that go beyond diffusing, or applying topically using a carrier oil. EOs can be used in salves, soaps, sprays, scrubs and much more. When creating these essential oil infused products for DIYs, we at EG typically use the same ingredients. Rather than buying necessary items with each new DIY project, we decided to release our list of aromatherapy essentials you might need for future DIYs.


A carrier is anything that dilutes an essential oil. Carriers are necessary in creating essential oil products for topical use.

Carrier Oil

Butter (Shea, Cocoa, Kombo, etc.)

Scentless Lotion

Wax (Bees, Soy, Carnauba, etc.)




Aloe Vera


Everyone has bowls and measuring cups, which are essential in making aromatherapy products, but what about these materials…?


Glass Stirring Rods


Once you’ve created your product or blend, put it in the container that suits it best. Is it an allergy blend? Add it to a stock bottle and apply a few drops to a personal inhaler. Lotions can be easily used when in jars and hopefully you know where sprays go.


Glass bottles


Spray Bottles

Lip Balm Tubes

Roll-On Bottles

EG’s Essentials

What about essential oils? EG’s gift sets contain some of the most popular and versatile essential oils used in aromatherapy. Take our Top 6 Set, which includes Eucalyptus, Lavender, Lemon, Peppermint, Sweet Orange and Tea Tree. Or our Simple Start Set, which contains essentials like Coconut carrier oil, personal inhalers, roll-on bottles, the Top 6 Set and more.

    Hi Rose Ann! A carrier with little to no aroma is preferred, such as Sunflower, Sweet Almond or Jojoba

    What is a base oil that blends nicely with rose absolute?

    Hi Denise! Yes, they are marked by the milliliter and are very helpful when blending.

    When blending oils, I am assuming it is easiest to use pipettes. How are they marked? Are they marked by the milliliter?

    Hi Jamie! We currently do not have a booklet listing all of our products and how to use them. The easiest way to use oils is by applying topically or diffusing. Here is an article that explains how and when to diffuse or apply: http://bit.ly/2pAO8ca
