For as long as I can remember I have been fascinated by fragrances and perfumes. I have a strong sense of smell which, let’s face it, is mostly a curse, since a lot of modern days perfumes are just unbearable to me and give me a major headache.
I use a lot of Essential Oils, and one of my hobbies is playing mad scientist/perfumer and trying to come up with new combinations of oils to use in my diffuser and suit my every moods. The one below was my 1st attempt.
I am a tea drinker, and for me a London Fog (Earl Grey tea + milk + vanilla) falls into the category of “comfort foods”, so I was eager to try and recreate something evocative of it, especially since Bergamot is one of my favorite oils.
This is what I used “on the spot” in a 100 ml diffuser but the blend can be prepared in advance (which allows the scents to mingle together) and then you just use a few drops of the mix.
Given the properties of the oils I used, this blend falls into the calming/comforting category.
