12 Free Scent Blending Recipes for Summer

We carry a ton of unique fragrance blends, but did you know we also have more than 40 single-note fragrances that you can use to create your own custom blends? A single note fragrance features just one scent rather than a blend of top, middle and bottom notes. Single note fragrances can be used on their own, but they’re even better when you use them as ingredients to create fragrance blends. You can also make your custom fragrances even more complex by adding any of our pre-blended fragrances to the mixture.

Tips for Blending Fragrances

It’s easy to mix different fragrances together to create custom scents. However, it’s hard to get the same results if you don’t take notes and measure carefully. Here are a few tips for getting consistent results once you find a blend you love. 

  • Use a plastic dropper or pipette if you’re measuring the number of drops you use in your blend.
  • 1 oz measuring cups also work great when measuring small amounts of oil.
  • For larger quantities, it’s best to measure by weight with a scale, not by volume. This is because different fragrance oils have different densities.
  • You can make any quantity of a blend by following the same ratios. For example, you can measure each part in drops (1 part = 1 drop) for small batches, or in pounds for large batches (1 part = 1 pound). Once you find a blend you like, just keep the ratios consistent to get the same results when creating a larger quantity.
  • Always keep good notes so you can recreate your favorite blends!

Hi Ashley! In these recipes, 1 part can mean any unit of measurement that works for you. We just listed the measurements in “parts” so that you can make any amount you want of the blend. For example, the “Lush Greens” blend can be mixed as 1oz Green Floral, 1oz Cucumber and 1oz Baby Bibb. I hope that helps!

Robin from NorthWood

Hey! Does the word parts in your recipe mean ounces?


Has anyone replicated the fragrance by the name Etc from RU 21? I would love to replicate that fragrance. Any help would be appreciated.
