Middle notes: warm & soft fragrances; give body to the blend & have a balancing effect. Base notes: normally intense & heady; rich & relaxing in nature; and long lasting. BLENDING RATES: As a rule of thumb, the combination between top, middle & base notes should be in harmony. Select oils from all three categories but use less of the base note and more of the top & middle notes. Top notes 30% of the blend. Middle notes 50% of the blend. Base notes 20% of the blend.
