The benefit of building your own blend is that you can create something that is absolutely perfect for YOU.
Yes, there are plenty of blends on the market, but finding one that you love AND that gives you the right results can be tricky. Also, going the DIY route to create a blend requires buying a bunch of oils ($$$), then carrier oils (to make them skin + hair safe), and practically setting up a lab in your kitchen to mix, melt, and pour everything (time + money = headache!). Our line saves you the hassle and money by making everything ready to blend and wear.
"How do I begin?", you ask...
If it’s about following your nose, you can create a signature scent that is uniquely you - something that enhances both your smile and style. Wouldn’t it fun to run into people and hear them say, “Wow! What are you wearing? You smell amazing!” What is also true is that when WE like the way we smell, we feel good, beautiful and energized. We walk through the world smiling and saying Hi to strangers, we look people in the eye, we go for that promotion, we walk with more confidence and swagger. And who couldn’t use a little extra swagger, am I right?
If the idea of following your heart interests you, an exciting aspect of pure therapeutic-grade essential oils is that all of them possess qualities that enhance your health and sense of well-being. You can focus on creating a blend to empower yourself to reach your dreams and goals and most of all, make you FEEL the way you want for any occasion (happy, focused at work, peaceful so we can sleep better, anxiety-free when we’re stressed out, driven during a workout, mindful and present during meditation or yoga…this list goes on and on!)
We’ve added informational bullet points for each oil on our website, but we really encourage you to use that as a starting point and do more research. The world of essential oils is vast and exciting, follow the threads of your own curiosity.
Creating your own oil can be as easy as following some of the delicious recipes that are already out there. For a list of some of our favorites please see below.
You can also choose 3 scents that have the intentions you want to create in your life and put them into an empty Warm Human-Inspired Compact. The compact keeps your favorite collections together safely and away from direct air and sunlight (reducing oxidation).
You can also use the perfumer’s trick of choosing your favorite Top, Middle and Base note into one powerful blend.
What we’ve learned from the perfumery world, is that Top notes are the first thing you smell. They disappear quickly, so they may be something you add more of to your skin or hair. Middle notes are often referred to as the “Heart” note. They are the body of a fragrance and round everything out and connect all of the other notes. They last longer than Top notes and less than Base notes. Base notes tend to be stronger scents that last much longer, so maybe use less of them (unless you love them, then, in that case, slather them on for days). Sandalwood is an interesting example of a powerful base note. It has been used for centuries in various perfumes…and long after the other elements in the bottle have disappeared or oxidized, years later people can STILL smell the sandalwood!
All of our essential oils indicate whether they are a Top, Middle or Base note with symbols on the container and packaging. Using the notes is often a fun and successful way of creating a blend.

This creative blend is a staff favorite. It’s powerful, feminine and sexy. It is unlike anything you’ve ever smelled before – so if you seek the unique, you might just very well fall in love the second you smell it. Grapefruit gives it a zesty citrus note, and tobacco is popular in men’s cologne but women love it, too! The masculinity of it makes you feel powerful, take action and express it…Frida Kahlo is the perfect spirit for this scent, she was a sexy, force to be reckoned with! And putting tuberose into the mix makes this blend unapologetically feminine.
This blend is a powerful aphrodisiac. These three scents stimulate your sex drive, enhance your sensuality, build confidence and connection and turn you on!

Because of that, you’ll feel safe to open your heart outwardly, try new things, explore more, and stretch your limits. You’ll have patience with yourself and the pathways you take to grow.
