Essential Oil Base Notes

Essential Oil Base Notes

Below is a list of the essential oils that are generally classified as base notes. Click on the link for each essential oil to view the detailed profile for each oil.

Identifying an essential oil as a top, middle or base note is based on subjective assessment in combination with reviewing the constituents present in the essential oil. Essential oils that are classified as base notes tend to evaporate the slowest and tend to last the longest in blends.

This list coincides with AromaWeb's Aromatherapy Blending Guide. For more information about how to blend essential oils for aromatic and therapeutic applications and for an explaination of top, base and middle notes, please read through the Aromatherapy Blending Guide.
