While woods & spices pair exceptionally well, they can also be heavy & overpowering. To lighten & brighten the effect, combine them with other aromatic classes.
Patchouli: Add patchouli to your recipes for base notes of your blend to provide grounding effect. In addition to their ability to quiet the mind, these oils are exceptionally effective against the effects of autumn on the skin.
Lavender: When you want just a touch of floral in your blend, choose something lighter like lavender. This will add a sense of peace and happiness. Plus lavender has the ability to calm inflammatory responses that ail the body and mind.
Eucalyptus: For a fresh, herbaceous touch, try eucalyptus. In addition to boosting clarity and focus, this oil offers unparalleled antimicrobial effects.
