Private Label Essential Oils: Creating Your Own BlendAs mentioned, essential oils can be used in a variety of ways. Whether you're planning to sell cosmetics, perfumes, massage oils, or simple aromatherapy oils, you can do it all with the right knowledge. If you're going to make blends, which you probably will, you'll need to know which ones to mix to achieve the perfect scent. For a few tips, take a look below:
- Consider what you'll use your blend for, then choose your oils accordingly, based on their category and benefits you want. Oils in the same category often mix well together.
- Review oil notes, which define how quick an oil evaporates or absorbs into the skin. There are 3 types: top, middle, and base notes.
- When blending, a good rule of thumb is to include 30% of the top note oil, 50% middle note, and 20% base note.
- Once blended allow at least 24 hours to pass so the oils can mix together.
- You can dilute your oil with a carrier oil, like jojoba, if you plan for it to be used topically.
Preparing Your Essential Oils for SaleOnce you've selected your oils and found the right blends, it'll be time to bottle them up and add labels. You may be anxious, but you'll need to consider a few things in packaging your private label essential oils. To ensure your products are up to bar, view the list below:
- Bottling: You should also have your essential oils bottled in glass, especially if they are pure oils. Brown glass bottles are preferable, as this is often a sign of pure oils. Bottles should also be airtight.
- Storing: Always store your oils in a cool and dry place. If you create and sell oils from your own home, the kitchen or bathroom is ideal for storing.
- Labeling: Your essential oil labels need to include the plant's botanical name, common name, and show the oil is 100% pure, if it is. You need to also include the origins of the oil extracts.
