HOW DOES THE APP WORK?
Simply add your chosen oils to the mixing beaker to build up a personalised blend, and you’ll see a list of safety precautions updated in real-time.
Watch the blending wheel spin as you add essential oils to your blend, with recommendations appearing towards the top. These suggestions update as each essential oil is added or removed from the blend.
Oils are conveniently grouped into top (red), middle (yellow) and base (green) notes – so it’s easy to create a balanced blend.
This app is not affiliated to any particular brand of essential oils – and as it’s developed by a qualified aromatherapist you know it’s advice you can trust.
Once you’re done, you can even save your blend for future reference. Saved blends can now be named and/or deleted when required. You can access your saved blends from the Main Menu.
Blend by condition
Choose from a list of 30 emotional and physical ailments to view the most relevant essential oils associated with that condition. The mixing beaker is pre-filled with the recommended blend recipe for that ailment, with other recommended alternative oils appearing at the top of the blending wheel. Simply add or remove any oil to customise the blend to your preferences.
Blend by oil
Choose any essential oil as a starting point, and the blending wheel will spin to suggest other suitable oils to add to the blend. Recommended oils will appear towards the top of the wheel, based on our unique blending algorithm.

I can’t Access the Condition I want
The availability of conditions is based on your selections in Customise Essential Oils. For display purposes, there is a limit to the number of oils that can fit on the wheel at any one time.
