    Default Mixing fragrance oils and essential oils

    Hi...I'd like to add a a few drops of musk perfume oil or fragrance oil to some essential oils. Do you know if the amount of the musk should be about the same amount, on the average, as each of the other essential oils? I suppose the strength of fragrance oils varies from company to company, but I'm just looking for a rough estimate on proportions. I also understand fragrance oils don't always mix well with essential oils, so periodic shaking of the finished product may be required.

    The musk you would be adding is dependent on the scent you wish to achieve. You should see fragrant and essential oils as interchangeable, rather than two separate things.

    Most FOs and EOs mix well. Rather than shaking the final product, warm the bottle between your hands and just gently roll it on a table or tipping it up-side-down. With all perfumes, definitely leave it in a cool, shaded area for a week for all the initial scents to blend before tweaking it again.

    It was dedicated to providing high quality Essential Oils and aromatherapy supplies at competitive prices and all of our essential oils are 100% pure and unadulterated, many of which are Pure English Essential Oils, locally grown and distilled.

    They are members of the Aromatherapy Trade Council (the UK Authoritative Body for the Essential Oil Trade).

    Hi ...Your question is a good one. The problem lies in exactly WHAT Musk you are thinking about using. Musks lie everywhere from naturally sourced animal Tonquin Musk, to the various chemical Musks known as "Nitro Musks" ( of which generally Musk ketone is one of the only ones still commonly used as there are alleged health risks associated with Musk Ambrette etc.)to the various synthetic Musk Compounds, to Musk fragrance oil ( which, depending on the producer can be just about anything!) to things like Ambrette Seed absolute (The last one is a naturally sourced material that has nothing to do with Musk Ambrette).

    All of this is a long winded way of saying that the choice of Musk ingredient(s) will dictate it's % by two factors: Desired olfactory potency, and maximum safe skin contact levels.

    Young Living oils are about the worst in quality and the highest in price. Just a MLM scam. BTW, you are a spammer and such repetitive posts via slightly different names will only bring ridicule upon you and your website.

    Myself I have only used e.o.'s but for people wanting to mix fragrance oils & e.o.'s one could try mixing small trial amounts and see how that goes. For fragrance oils see that you do use skin safe oils. There are a lot of fragrance oils out there which allthough they are nice in scent are only meant for use in home fragrance, oil burners , potpourri etc.

    A good book is Encyclopedia of Essential Oils by Julia Lawless see www.amazon.com/ or www.amazon.co.uk/ you can view some sample pages online !

    You may well experience precipitation from 'adulterants' if mixing the two?

    Mixing fragrance and essential oils shouldn't be a problem as long as the oils or absolutes have not been diluted in something like Jojoba oil or another carrier oil. That's often the case with oils intended for Aromatherapy massage. Some fragrance oils are only for use in burners or room scent and not at all suitable.
    Best to buy from reputable suppliers where the product and suitable usage is clearly explained and understood.

    It entirely depends on why you should want to do this.

    For a perfume formula or serious perfumery learning - then just don't bother for many reasons. Type the question in the search box and read the many threads already here and see all the existing answers. I'm fairly sure there is another current thread on this very subject. If I find it, I will add a link.

    For curiosity and your own playful fun for no further reproduction - why not? Try and see.
