    What's your top 10 most used oils?

    Im getting started in a few hobbies that involve using essential oils, like making candles and annointments and was wondering what 10 essential oils people would suggest i should have in my collection. Please can people provide their opinions as i wish to get started quite soon if possible. Also if you wish to share why you recommend them that would be brilliant aswell.

    Thanks, Amanite

    1. Cinnamon
    2. Almond
    3. Sandlewood
    4. Ginger
    5. Pine
    6. Jasmine
    7. Rose
    8. Lavender
    9. Nutmeg
    10. Lemon

    Some are sweet and others are refreshing of the mind. I like flowery oils and those that can be used in cooking. During different times of the year these oils may be more needed than others. I like warmer oils in Autumn and Winter, like the fruits and the spices. In Spring/Summer I go for fresh opendoor oils like grass, leaves or wild flowers.
    The only thing that sucks around here is a straw.

    Of my plain essential or fragrance oils, I'd say my top ten are:

    1. Frankincense
    2. Lemongrass
    3. Cinnamon
    4. Benzoin
    5. Patchouli
    6. Dragon's Blood
    7. Jasmine
    8. Lavender
    9. Mint
    10. Rosemary


    And I put special emphasis on the first 5 -- practically any formula I make uses one of those. The final five are my best guess, but really from that point it all depends what kind of formulas and spells I'm getting most involved with at a given point in time. If I'm doing lots of love work then the fruit and floral scents get favored; if it's all mental work then refreshing herbal scents like mint and sage get favored more; if it's power workings then it's deep fragrances like patchouli and vetivert that I start to run low on.

    I think, however, it depends a bit on what tradition you work in.
