When you are ready to start blending, you should use a pipette for best control.
Mountain Rose Herbs offers some really wonderful precious absolutes and essential oils that are worth checking out. You can visit them HERE.
Here is the recipe for my Betwixt Perfume:
10 drops Petitgrain Sur Fleurs
5 drops Red Mandarin essential oil
5 drops Osmanthus
5 drops Neroli essential oil
5 drops Orange Blossom Absolute
2 drops Jasmine Absolute
3 drops Vanilla Absolute
2 drops Pink Peppercorn
1 drop Black Peppercorn
Using separate pipettes for each extract, measure into a small perfume bottle and tightly cap. Allow the blend to ripen for at least 3 weeks and up to 6 weeks.
