    So I am very new to this fun journey. I have blended my oils , then understand I must let it sit for a few days before adding my carrier. My question is if I want to adjust it 1.Can I add a more of any base, middle or top? 2. Do I then let it sit another few days before adding a carrier?

    Hi Jennbeck,

     

    Yes, you can always adjust top, middle and base notes. As well as before adding a carrier, and afterwards. It's always best to let it sit another few days before judging the impact of your modification(s). It could also be a good idea to make small adjustments with parts of your original mixture to learn from the differences and impact, by comparing them afterwards.
