Information about oil blends, in a nutshell:
Aromas from oils enter into the bloodstream from the nose and the skin. From there they affect the brain and the emotions. The time this takes and its affect varies from person to person. For me, it takes about 20 minutes and it lasts 5 to 6 hours. The effect depends on factors which include: how applied, how much is used, and the mood the person starts with, and other things.
