What Mixes Well With Lavender Essential Oil? Oily FAQ by Loving Essential Oils

Lavender essential oil is one of the most popular aromatherapy oils on the market. It is touted as being the "Mother of All Oils" for good reasons. Not only does it have some amazing benefits but lavender essential oil mixes well with many other oils.

Obviously what smells good to one person may not smell good to another so it is important to take your personal oily enjoyments into account. It is also important to keep an open mind because when blending essential oils there is a wonderful thing called synergy that happens that can lead to something beautiful!

Let's explore lavender and mixing essential oils a little more before we get into what blends well with lavender essential oil.

What are the Different Types of Lavender Essential Oil? by Loving Essential Oils

What are the Different Types of Lavender Essential Oil?

We have to look at the different types of lavender oil to make sure that we are on the same page. There are three main types available on the marketplace, this is where the botanical names really help you know what you are buying.

True Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) has a floral and herbal aroma. For this post, we are referencing this type of lavender. It is the most common in aromatherapy and its versatility is truly amazing.

Spike Lavender (Lavandula latifolia) has a high percentage of 1,8- Cineole and Camphor which is why the aroma is reminiscent of Eucalyptus and Ravensara.

Lavandin (Lavandula x intermedia) is a hybrid of them both True Lavender and Spike Lavender and will have elements from both oils.

What is Essential Oil Synergy?

A synergy essential oil blend is two or more essential oils working together for a greater benefit then the total of their individual effects. Kinda magical right ;)

When blending essential oils together, each oil can have an enhancing effect on the other oils in the blend. You get more bang for your buck, so to speak.

What is Your Goal for Blending Essential Oils?

From my perspective, lavender oil can be added to almost any other essential oil because I really love it. When using essential oils, keep in mind your intent for the blend you are mixing. 

For example, if you want a relaxing blend for bedtime, find complementary essential oils for sleep. Have a headache try lavender with peppermint.

What Blends Well With Lavender Essential Oil?

There are lots of essential oils that are good to mix with lavender, it really depends on what you will use it for and/or what essential oils you find enjoyable. The nice thing about Lavender is that it is a multipurpose essential oil so it can blend with just about anything. With that being said, I am sharing my favorite lavender essential oil blends so they could differ from yours :)

Top 7 Lavender Essential Oil Blends

1. Lavender and Peppermint Oil

  • These two are MUST HAVE oils in my home because they are both so versatile. I am never without them and I highly recommend them for every home. They are both great for pain/headaches and beneficial first aid essential oils.

2. Lavender and Sweet Orange Oil

  • Lavender pairs great with citrus oils and sweet orange is my favorite citrus so I think this is one of the best floral and citrus combos ever. Together they are soothing, relaxing, and just leave me smiling.

3. Lavender and Lemongrass Oil

  • The gentle floral aroma of lavender oil is well known for calming and balancing, while lemongrass oil has a fresh lemony aroma that is uplifting and cleansing. They are both affordable essential oils and beneficial for first aid.

    4. Lavender and Bergamot Oil

    • Pleasant...relaxing...uplifting...aaahhh. Bergamot brings a soft, subtle citrus note to lavender that lifts that mood and brightens the spirit when combined.

    5. Lavender and Frankincense Oil

    • Use these two powerhouse oils to care for skin, support breathing, promote feelings of relaxation, and connect with inner peace.

    6. Lavender and Patchouli Oil

    • Nice combo, they compliment each other well. The lavender really tones down the strong patchouli smell. I like to fewer drops of patchouli than lavender when blending them together otherwise the patchouli scent is too strong. Adding sweet orange to the mix makes an especially pleasant blend.

    7. Lavender and Vetiver Oil

    • Need a chill-out essential oil combination? If yes, this blend is for you. Vetiver is another base oil like patchouli so fewer drops are needed than lavender. Smells nice together, earthy aroma with a floral kick, a favorite bedtime blend.

    Essential oils are great because not only do they make you feel good physically but mentally as well. I love having them around since they have so many benefits like clearing the air of bad odors and improving moods by releasing calming scents in your home or office for instance!
