The Blend3 Method

By following this structured yet creative process, the Blend3 Method empowers both beginners and experienced aromatherapists to craft effective, harmonious, and personalized essential oil blends with confidence.
The Aromatic Studies Blend3 Method, developed by Jade Shutes in 1992, provides a clear and structured approach to creating essential oil blends. This method starts by asking practitioners to set a specific intention or goal for their blend, focusing on whether they want to address physical, emotional, or both aspects of well-being. By beginning with a clear purpose, users can create blends that are tailored to their unique needs.

Once the intention is set, the Aromatic Studies Blend3 Method guides users through a thoughtful process of selecting essential oils. This selection is based on various factors such as plant part, aromatic palette, system affinities, therapeutic actions, and chemistry. This systematic approach ensures that each oil chosen serves a specific purpose in the overall blend, contributing to its effectiveness and harmony.

At the core of the Aromatic Studies Blend3 Method are three key principles:

the value of intention

the importance of a systematic approach to oil selection

the use of a Blending Factor to create balanced formulations

The method emphasizes a crucial step of smelling the chosen oils together before finalizing the blend, ensuring they work well in combination. By following this structured yet creative process, the Blend3 Method empowers both beginners and experienced aromatherapists to craft effective, harmonious, and personalized essential oil blends with confidence.
