Once you get accustomed to the natural and marvelously real aromas of essential oils, you will never be duped into buying chemical ones again. Essential oils are highly concentrated, fragrant, and rich in chemical compounds of the mother plant. They have distilled in them the antibacterial power to kill germs as well as lift our spirits. They are fun and easy to use. I cannot watch a TV commercial for room fresheners and sprays without thinking what a waste of money they are. Even worse though is how negatively they affect the atmosphere and health of your home, with a special circle in hell reserved for those companies selling chemicals in an aerosol spray can and having the nerve to call them 'air fresheners'..
The most common ways to diffuse oils are in aroma lamps, electric room diffusers, (great for office and bathrooms where you don't want to leave a candle unattended), and spray mists. To make a simple mist spray, Dilute 50 to 100 drops or so of essential oils in 4 fluid ounces (120ml) of pure water. Spray to refresh and cleanse the air.
There is an almost infinite possible number of combinations of oils to use to freshen the air in your home. You are limited only be your imagination and the oils you have on hand. Essential oils are classified as top, middle or base notes, and a basic understanding of this will help you make longer lasting and more effective blends.
- Top Notes:
- Top notes are the first aroma you smell in a blend. Top notes evaporate quickly and are very stimulating.
- Middle Notes:
Middle notes are more stable, and last longer. They are sometimes thought of
as a "bridge" between the top and base notes of a blend.

- Base Notes :
- Base notes are the most stable of the oils, and are used to anchor the higher notes in the blend and prolong their fragrances. Base notes tend to have a relaxing, sedative effect, both sweeter and heavier that the other oils. Many of the base notes are resins, or woody oils like sandalwood and cedarwood.
