Essential Oil Copycat Charts

Ever since I started my essential journey, I am struck by the vast number of essential oil blends available that supposedly 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 recipes that I’ve collected over the last couple of years.

Since I like to be somewhat organized, these blends are combined into charts so I can find everything in one convenient place.  These are living lists, so as I find new recipes, I 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. Please note that if you don’t see a particular blend you want in the chart, then I don’t have it.

Also note that these are master blends unless otherwise stated.

  1. I’m living in Korea. This article was written with Google Translate. I don’t know if the message went well, but I want to say thank you.

    I am receiving corticosteroid treatment for atopic dermatitis and allergic diseases, and I also have burning mouth syndrome, so I am taking various medications. maybe these? will continue to take Funny thing is, I work professionally in a hospital, and access to medicines is very convenient. So I am well aware of how quickly corticosteroids can improve my skin and allergies, but I also know that I need to reduce the amount of corticosteroids. In severe cases, it must be taken (as prescribed by a doctor).
    I know there are no specific alternatives to BMS, but I am trying aromatherapy to reduce my steroid intake even a little. So I’m no expert. There are no excellent and famous specialized brands in Korea, there are products that can be obtained from doTERRA or iHerb, and there are products that directly purchase plant treaphy, but information is lacking.
    In particular, DT products are closed and expensive, so it is difficult to equip them all. Your chart will be very helpful for people like me.

    I am very sorry that you were unable to purchase EO at the above store.

    And I have a question. Could the potency of fir oil be similar?
    I have the Balsam Fir EO, ​​​​but the Siberian Fir EO is not equipped. I wonder if the chemical structures are compatible with each other.

    Thank you in advance. Thank you very much.

  2. Thank you for your great job. I downloaded yor charts half year ago, but I lost them after laptop failure. I registered once again, but haven’t got download link. Can I kindly ask for it?

  3. Hi there

    I have subscribed however have not received the EO link. i have checked my junk folder etc. May i please be sent this chart ? thanking you so very much

  4. Hi, just wanted to start by saying this is the most informative and easy access page I have come across! Im still reading through all of your content but I would like to ask the difference on V.1 and V.2. is this just different versions for making the oils? also I use 15ml bottles when making my blends how would you suggest i calculate for a “master blend”? and lastly please let me know when YL White Angelica is available too 🙂 thank you again for this amazing page!!

    1. Hi Eloise,
      Thank you for your lovely comments. The reason there are versions like V.1 and V.2 is that this is a collection of recipes I found and some have more than one variations with subtle differences. A 15ml bottle generally holds about 1 tsp or 300 drops of oils. When you make a master blend, you multiply the number of drops in a recipe to get as close to 300 as possible. EG. If a master blend calls for 20 drops of lemon, 20 drops of lavender and 20 drops of eucalyptus, that would mean you already have 60 drops. Subtract what you have (60) from (300) and you are left with 240. If you divide that into 3 you get 80. If you add 80 drops to 20 drops, that means you will add 100 drops of each of the oils into the 15 ml bottle to get 300 drops. I generally don’t make that much of a master blend in case I don’t like it or may not use it up that fast.

    1. Did you confirm your subscription? I will check into what’s happening and make sure you get the link.

  5. Yikes! I just wrote a message to you saying that I used cistus in Stress Away! It was CASSIA! Kind of cinnamon-y but woody scent as well. It worked well. I’ve got to get these oil names straight!

  6. I want to tell
    you that I received the charts and made some Stress Away this morning. I did not have octtea so I improvised! I used cistus. It was even more appealing than Stress Away. I also made Sacred Mountain. I used two kinds of cedarwood. It gave the blend a special “something “. Thank you so much for your expertise and sharing your knowledge. I have learned from you that if a blend is NOT EXACTLY like the one on the market then that may be a good thing. I look forward to personalizing some of my other favorites.
    Bless you.

  7. Can I simply just say what a relief to find someone that genuinely knows what they are discussing on the internet.
    You definitely understand how to bring an issue
    to light and make it important. More and more people must look at
    this and understand this side of your story. I was surprised that
    you are not more popular since you most certainly have the gift.

    My web site … 1 MILLION DUO SET 100ml

  8. Hye. Thank you for your sharing. Just wondering do you know or anybody know what is recipe for master blend young living white angelica? Kindly appreciate if you share the recipe. Thanks in advance.

  9. Hi, I write from Italy. In a Pinterest post I found the replacement for a medicine made with essential oils, the brands mentioned by us (ex. YL) are excessively expensive so I hope that the Day of the proposed formulas can be of help.

  10. Hi, please excuse my lack of knowledge, I am trying to make myself a 10ml bottle of Doterra Onguard blend. At this point I just want the master blend as I will be diluting it to use from the 10ml bottle. Can you advise how I calculate the drops per essential oil to make the master blend up to 10ml please.

    Many thanks and great blog

    1. Hi Julie,
      There are about 200 drops in 10ml. To make that much of a master blend, I take the number of drops listed in a recipe and multiply accordingly until I get the 200 drops. For example, if the total drops in a blend is 35 drops, you divide 200 by 35 and get 5.7. You then multiply the number of drops of each essential oil accordingly. Hope this helps.

    1. Hi Brenda,
      Thanks for letting me know about the link. Some people have reported to me that they found the link in their junk or spam folders. Let me know if if it’s not there and I will send the link again.

    1. Thanks for the kind words, Ellen. No, I don’t have a copycat for adaptiv, just what’s on the charts already.

  11. These copycat recipes are AWESOME! I used a few of YL blends regularly for several years, but had to stop buying them when I lost my job. I tried to recreate ImmuPower, but it was incredibly difficult and I gave up. Thank you so much for collecting and offering these for free. You’re a Blessing!

  12. any chance you have recently updated your copy cat chart list. I have made a few and it really is awesome…..I am looking for a copy cat for CHEER from DT.

  13. I haven’t been able to find the (YL) Inner Harmony blend. I know the oils just not how much of each oil.

  14. I have been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never
    found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.
    In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net
    will be much more useful than ever before.

    1. Hello Mariah,
      I don’t know about White Lotus as this is an oil I’m not familiar with, but I have read that you can substitute Chamomile for Blue Tansy.

  15. Hi & love your work!!! I’m desperately seeking the copycat of Plant Therapy’s Poop Ease – of which I’ve read very good things about. Please share when you come across? Thanks kindly in advance x

      1. Forgiveness:
        5 Frankincense, 5 Sandalwood, 6 Rosewood, 7 Lavender, 4 Lemon, 4 Roman Chamomile, 2 Geranium, 5 Ylang Ylang, 7 Bergamot, 5 Rose Otto, 6 Helichyrsum, 4 Jasmine, 7 Melissa or Lemon Balm, 4 Palmarosa, 4 Angelica, (dilution 80% (75/19))

  16. Thank you for sharing these lists! Is there any chance you can share a copy cat for YL Mister oil and YL Shutran oil?

  17. Hey there. I made a double batch of your recipe for Shutran (YL) and It burns. Turns out there shouldn’t be Cinnamon. This should be Lavender instead. FYI

    Thanks for the recipes!

    1. Hi Jim. Thanks for the comment. These recipes are supposed to be master blends so I hope when you use them you are diluting them accordingly. I am in the process of updating my charts so I appreciate you letting me know about the lavender instead of the cinnamon. Thanks for visiting:)

      1. When you say these are master blends does that mean that you add all of the drops for the particular blend you are making in a container and then when you want to use the blend, you then take that blend and dilute it in another container? (I’m interested in making the Aroma Siez YL blend)

        1. Mother Dearest

          Yes. That’s exactly what is meant by “Master Blend”. Mix the oils for the master blend in a glass bottle. I usually use a 5 ml vial. I follow the dilution chart above when using for roller bottles or infusing. Hope that clarifies things. Thanks for visiting.

    1. Hi Clara,
      Unfortunately, I do not. Will look at these blends as they look like a couple of their seasonal blends. Thanks for visiting and check back:)

  18. Hi, thanks so much for these recipes! I’m still looking for a few more doterra ones if you come across them – motivate, Hope, arise, anchor, align and Zendocrine. And any idea where to find cocoa bean oil? I’ve never seen that anywhere. Thanks

    1. Thanks! Unfortunately, I don’t have these recipes yet. Still looking. Not sure where to find cocoa bean oil, but you may want to check out my Essential Oil sources page. I’ve listed lots of sources that may carry that particular oil.

  19. Thank you so much for sharing your work with us. I have a Young Living Book with the blend ingredients but Progessence isn’t in there. I think it might be newer. Do you have any info on that one?

    1. Hi Eunice,
      In some of the blends, I found several versions. I distinguished them by naming them V.1 (Version 1), V.2 (Version 2), etc.

  20. Thank you so much for those blend recipes.If you will have in the future also Plant Therapy Respir aid blend recipe, please share with us.

  21. 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.

    1. 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.

          1. My recipe for Raven:

            20 Ravintsara, 12 Eucalyptus radiata , 11 Wintergreen, 12 Peppermint, 20 Lemon (dilution 80% (75/19))

  22. 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!

    1. 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.

    1. I don’t see why not. Just remember that these are master recipes. Depending on how many drops of essential oils your soap recipe requires, you’d have to adjust your master recipe to accommodate.

    1. 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!

  23. 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.
