So I've quiet using Aveda products for a few years now, but I still miss the orgasm inducing scents from their products. I've done a little internet research and I want to try and replicate some similar fragrances out of essential oils to perfume my own unscented shampoos, bath salts ect.

I'm hoping that I can work with some other people on getting some good recipes. Anyone interested in working with me on this one?

I've got a list of the starting notes, but will need to figure out the ratios. This week I picked up the essential oils needed from whole foods and am ready to start formulating.

Organic eating, cloth diapering, no vaxing, cosleeping, breastfeeding mean machine.

I'm subbing to see what you come up with! I had a massage at an Aveda spa and couldn't quit sniffing myself all day. It was delicious!

Here's what I am working from which I found on the internet.

#1: Key Element Earth -- Notes: Peppermint, Lemon, Orange
#2: Key Element Water -- Notes: Rose, Geranium, Eucalyptus
#3: Key Element Fire -- Notes: Ylang Ylang, Jasmine, Rose
#4: Key Element Air -- Notes: Clove, Rose, Jasmine
#5: Key Element Infinity -- Notes: Petitgrain, Orange, Lemon
#6: Key Element Water/Air -- Notes: Ylang Ylang, Bergomot, Orange
#7: Key Element Air/Water -- Notes: Lime, Orange, Lemon
#9: Key Element Water/Air/Fire -- Notes: Patchouli, Sandalwood, Jasmine
#12: Key Element Earth -- Notes: Peppermint, Eucalyptus
#15: Key Element Water -- Notes: Clove, Anise, Fennel
#20: Key Element Fire -- Notes: Sandalwood, Ylang Ylang, Violet Leaves
#25: Key Element Infinity -- Notes: Lime, Lavender

#5 is like the scent used in the Brilliant line

#6 is like the scent used in Shampure

#7 -- smells a lot like the old Chakra III scent Equipose

Diffuser Oils/Candle Scents:

Euphoric = Key Element #4
Lavandou = Key Elements #3 + #15
Madagascar = Key Elements #5 + #25
Rainforest = Key Elements #9 + #15
Valencia = Key Elements #1 + #7

I'd like to start with figuring out the ratios with number six. I will start mixing a few drops of essential oils into an almond oil base. Anyone up for joining me and posting what ratios they found worked best?

After this one I would like to experiment with #2.

Did you know that you can get the Madagascar fragrance oil from "Wholesale Supplies PLus"? it is a fragrance/essential oil blend.
