Essential Oil Blend Copycat Charts


Ever since I started my essential journey, I was struck by the vast number of recipes available for all kinds of blends to assist with a vast array of ailments.  It would be impossible to try all of them without going bankrupt!  As you explore Pinterest and other blogs, there are many diehards who swear by these blends, but to some of us, the cost is prohibitive, so the DIY option only makes sense. Since I don’t buy the MLM brands for reasons stated in my “Essential Oils for Beginners“, I still find that some of the blends have merits that might make them worth looking into.  Hence my collection of copycat blends that I’ve collected over the last year and combined into charts so I can find everything in one convenient place.  These are living lists, so as I find new recipes, I will add them to my charts.  If you have any to share that aren’t on the chart, let me know and I will add:)

Please note that I make no promises regarding the blends in these charts.  They are just recipes I have collected that are copycats of the originals that other people have tried to duplicate and which I am freely sharing.  I have gone to the company websites to note the oils in the original blends for comparison purposes.  I do not guarantee that the percentage of oils in the copycat recipes are just like the original blends or that they do what is claimed by the company. That is for you to decide, research and experiment with.

  1. My family has been traumatized by child molestation – I have been looking for the S A R A blend for YEARS, because we cannot afford the Y L brand even if I wanted to. I am nearly in tears right now with all of the recipes I am now frantically writing into a popular emotional releasing book, in it’s back ingredient list!! Thank you SO much. I can’t even begin to express how grateful I am.


    • Generally, yes. If the amount of drops seems too high, I check the dilution charts and dilute accordingly depending on the strength I’m looking for. I haven’t worked will all the recipes yet so this is still new to me. I like having my recipes in one place so I can find them when needed. Let me know how they work for you!


  2. On the recipes like YL Aroma Ease, I see where you have the oils and carrier but no numbers.. it this one drop of each oil? Also, I need to know what the different recipes along the page represent? Are they just different size master blends or are they different variations? Thank you for all the hard work you have put into these!


    • Thanks Annette,

      In the coloured area where there aren’t any drops…..that’s where I recorded the actual essential oils that were listed in the blend from the brand web pages. I did it out of curiousity for my own info so I could compare the copycat blends with the originals. For some of the blends, I found more than one master blend recipe and wanted to compare the differences. I compiled these charts to share my findings and leave it up to you guys to try them out and hopefully share results.


  3. I would like to make Doterra balance. I have all the oils however how much of a carrier oil do I need in a bottle like the doterra to make it up please? I’m so lost.


    • Hi Kelly

      Thanks for asking. Whenever I use one of these recipes, I check the safety charts to make sure the number drops listed matches the amount of carrier oil required for the dilution percentage I’m making.
