    Add all your favourite essential oils in one bottle, and for stress relieving oils, add 20 drops of lavender essential oil and 10 drops of sandalwood essential oil into the bottle. Now, after adding everything set the bottle aside for two days so the ingredients sit well with each other. Do not forget to shake the bottle frequently over the next two days, so everything mixes up well.

    Now, comes the part where you will add one ounce of jojoba oil to the oil mixture, and then shake the bottle once more to add all the oils and make it into one mix. The addition of sweet almond oil and the jojoba oil will help dilute the essential oils. It will be helpful if you use undiluted essential oils, because undiluted essential oils can have an adverse affect onto your skin, for example you can develop skin rashes.
