Mix and Match! How to pair your Bare Origin oils with the ultimate essential oil blends

Maybe you love Bare Origin's oils as they are. Or maybe you want to spice them up and add an aroma that will be beneficial both for your skin and your mind. 
So I wanted to give you a few suggestions of aroma blends you can easily make at home.  If you are new to essential oils you don't have to worry at all. These are all simple and easy to find essential oils, you can find them online or your nearest health food store. 
Essential oils are very concentrated, potent extracts of a plant. So you need to be very careful with the quantity you use. To make things easy I have created a table of the essential oils you will be using for these blends with a short description of their benefits. You also have a table of the number of drops you should be using depending on how many millilitres of carrier oil you are blending them with!
