8 Spectacular Essential Oil Blends

If you’ve experimented with essential oils, you know how rewarding creating your personal masterpiece can be. But, that means you also know the disappointment when you create an eye watering, room-clearing blend! Sometimes it’s nice to have someone do the work for you. That’s why we created eight brand new essential oil blends representing our favorite elements and ambiance.

These blends will take you on amazing adventures—from warm sand beneath your feet and the soft sound of crashing waves to the crisp, clean air and tranquil silence of the mountaintops. The best part is: we use all Certified Organic or sustainably produced essential oils hand-selected by ACHS Founder and President Dorene Petersen for their quality. Not only will you travel to serene or reviving destinations in your imagination, you’ll do it with the highest quality essential oils!

In the same way the minty burst of toothpaste revives you in the morning, the aroma of Morning Revival awakens the senses and alerts your mind and body for a successful day.

Metal Blend – Reviewed by Heather Baley, Dean of Students

This blend reminds me of an early morning walk through the downtown Saturday Farmer’s Market in Portland with a cup of hot peppermint tea. When the smells of the trees (the sweet balsamic from cypress is one of my favorites!), fresh citrus, and warm food from the food carts combine with the dew on the city buildings, it reminds me that it’s going to be an amazing day.

This blend contains essential oils of bergamot C. aurantium var. bergamia, black pepper Piper nigrum (L.), cardamom Eletteria cardamomum (L.), cypress C. sempervirens, immortelle Helichrysum italicum (Roth), and peppermint M. ×piperita.

Fire Blend – by Renee Long, Communications Specialist

When inhaling this blend, I can’t seem to get The Doors’ “Light My Fire” out of my head! With hot notes of cinnamon and black pepper, this spicy, intoxicating blend will light up your senses. The uplifting, floral aroma of ylang ylang complements the spices well. I think this blend is perfect for couples, and would be lovely to diffuse or use one or two drops in a massage blend around Valentine’s Day or any special occasion. But it can certainly be enjoyed by anyone who loves the wild zing and zest of the spice oils!

This blend contains essential oils of black pepper Piper nigrum (L.), cinnamon Cinnamomum zeylanicum (Blume), clove Syzygium aromaticum (L.), and ylang ylang C. odorata var. genuina.

Water Blend – Reviewed by Tracey Abell, Chief Operating Officer

This blends transports you to the shore of a Pacific Northwest mountain lake on a hot summer day. Elemi lends a light, fresh, green note that softly carries the spicy, energizing mix of pink peppercorn and coriander like a warm breeze floating across the water, catching the forest scents as it travels. Close your eyes and imagine rhythmic lake waters lapping the rocky shoreline. Inhale and feel the calm settle in.

This blend contains essential oils of bergamot C. aurantium var. bergamia, Roman chamomile Chamaemelum nobile (L.) All., coriander Coriandrum sativum (L.), elemi Canarium luzonicum (Miq.), and pink peppercorn Schinus terebinthifolia (Raddi).

Air Blend – Reviewed by Kerrie Seeber, Shipping Clerk & Production Assistant

When I inhale this blend, the strong spice, resin tones, and light floral notes make me think of walking in a meadow in the spring just after a fresh rain, when you can smell all of the wet organic matter. The air is green and uplifting. It’s a lovely aroma for meditation, to both ground your body and release your mind.

This blend contains essential oils of lavender Lavandula angustifolia (Mill.), patchouli Pogostemon cablin (Benth.), and vetiver V. zizanioides.
