Making Different Soaps With Essential Oil Combinations

The best essential oil combinations for use in making bath and body soaps vary from person to person, depending on their preferences. Some people like hot and spicy, some like cold and soothing. Others like citrus and floral. Some like sweet orange and a hint of lavender, while others love spicy, nutty and floral scents. So, the choice really depends on your personal preferences.

In order to make sure that the best, essential oil combinations are found in homemade soaps, it is important to take a look at the soap’s formulation. When you take a look at the ingredients list for each soap bar, you will see that there are four basic parts: base notes, heart notes, top note oils, and bottom note oils. Each of these parts represents a different scent as well as the quality of that scent.

The Most Noticeable Scents

Base notes are usually the most noticeable scents in any soaps. They are the base scent that makes the soap smell so inviting. If you were looking for the best essential oil combination for health benefits, then base notes would be where you would focus. For example, lavender is the scent of relaxation and soothe, so it is the perfect choice for base notes. But, of course, you don’t want to neglect the other scents.

Heart Notes Are The Most Soothing And Calming

Heart notes are the most soothing and calming of all the scents, so they are perfect for the middle of the body. So, these are great ingredients for this essential oil recipe. Some of the scents that have a medium level of heart include bergamot, geranium, jasmine, Rosemary, rose, and sandalwood. The top notes are linalool, lavanille, and Carnation. If you want to add more of the fragrance to your homemade bath products, then just use more of these top notes.

Top notes are not to be overlooked when creating the best essential oil combinations. These are the dominant smells that you sense straight from the bottle. You want to use a light amount because the oils are concentrated, and they do get dirty faster than the base notes. For example, using only a quarter ounce of basil leaves will make a delicious base for the shower gel. Add a couple drops of lavender and get ready for your day!
