Love It or Hate It: How to Use Our Strongest Smelling Essential Oils

You’ve read the reviews of a new essential oil and decide that it’s worth a try. People have raved about how wonderful it smells, how amazing it’s helped them sleep, and so many more other things that you know you need it in your life. What could go wrong? You place the order, anxiously await its arrival, tear open the packaging, and take a whiff. To your dismay, it smells awful. Not just awful, but it’s one of the strongest smelling essential oils you’ve sniffed. What do you do? 

Love it or hate it?

Believe it or not, there are some essential oils that some people find the smell is just too strong. They can be overbearing and hard to use. You might feel stuck with an essential oil you don’t like. Are they usable at all? Can you mask the smell a little by using another oil? Can you use fewer drops? What if you just hate the smell? Well, we are here to help answer some of your questions, and hopefully, find new ways for you to use the strongest smelling essential oils that you just can’t stand. After all, you don’t want to miss out on the amazing benefits an oil has to offer! We’ll show you how to get the most out of these more controversial oils that maybe have you feeling a little stuck. 


Blending With Other Oils

While it may be hard to believe, there is always something to love about an oil, even if it has a strong aroma. For some, it’s the strength of the oil that makes it so attractive and so wonderful. These people will usually tell you that all you need to do to improve the aroma of your oils is to blend them with something else. It could be a stronger grounding smell, or it can be a combination of lighter smells. It really just depends on the oil you’re working with. If you find yourself struggling to decide what to mix with your oils, check out the product page. Under Product Details, every single oil has a list of oils that it blends well with. This is a handy resource for those who just need a little help when blending, especially with those hard to stand oils. 


Don’t Judge an Oil by the Bottle

More often than not, essential oils smell a lot stronger from the bottle than they do when diffused or added to a carrier oil. Because of this, it’s important to not give up on an oil purely based on how it smells straight from the bottle. When blended with other oils or mixed into a carrier oil, you may just find it’s exactly what you needed or were looking for in your essential oil journey! You can even try putting a drop on a scent strip, leaving it for a few minutes, and coming back to it to see how the aroma has changed.

Use Fewer Drops

Another simple technique to make stronger oils more bearable is to use less of them. If you want to diffuse a blend of Cinnamon and Peru Balsam, but the Cinnamon is too strong, cut down how many drops you are using. It’s completely okay to use less drops than your diffuser recommends. A key to diffusing strong-smelling oils is to start with less and build from there. Add a drop of your strong oils to the diffuser and see how you like the smell. If it’s not strong enough, add another drop. Start small, and increase only if you think it’s needed. Eventually, you’ll find the right ratio for you, and you’ll save yourself some precious oil because you won’t have to dump it out. You can always add more oil, unfortunately, you cannot take the oil out if there is too much.


Meet the Worst Offenders

Everyone’s sniffer is different. So there’s a good chance you might not be a fan of something that’s universally (well, almost) loved. But then there’s a handful of oils that elicit a strong response from just about everyone… and you either love them or you hate them. we’ve got a great diffuser blend for those super strong oils that you struggle to use, not to mention a few reasons why you want to keep these oils around.

Vetiver Essential Oil


Vetiver is a root oil that is jam-packed with therapeutic properties. Its powerful earthy, woody, smoky scent is pleasantly rich to some or overpoweringly smoky to others. This powerhouse oil is known for its ability to promote relaxation and mental balance. Vetiver is very popular for its bedtime use as it helps calm the mind. Due to its unique aroma, it’s also a wonderful addition to natural perfumery as a base note.

Cinnamon Cassia

The strong scent of Cinnamon Cassia is very warm and spicy like its relative cinnamon. That wonderful aroma that is familiar in the spice world, is a favorite to create seasonal blends that bring the holidays indoors. Even though it might smell like your favorite holiday, a single drop packs quite a punch. But when blended with softer oils, you can use this powerful oil to create an open, warm environment.

Home Sweet Home Diffuser Blend

Ylang Ylang essential oil

Ylang Ylang

Ylang Ylang has been used for centuries as a perfume and in religious ceremonies for its rich scent and mood-lifting abilities. To some, its a beautifully sweet and heady floral oil, but others can’t get over the powdery overtones. In spite of its scent, there is no shortage of beneficial uses of Ylang Ylang, but there is no denying that it has a strong aroma that may be hard to work with. Here’s a lovely, uplifting blend for you to try.

Magnetic Diffuser Blend

What you’ll do:

Add the essential oils to your diffuser and enjoy!



Petitgrain Essential Oil originates from Paraguay and is extracted using steam distillation from the leaves and twigs of the Seville bitter orange tree. This oil has a woodsy, fresh scent with a hint of floral, but for some, all they can smell is twigs and grass (but not in a good way).  In spite of this (or maybe because of it) the aroma is a favorite for natural perfumery, comforting the mind when emotions are running wild, and is gentle and effective for skincare. 

Sweet Herbal Breeze Diffuser Blend

Blue Tansy

Blue Tansy

Our Blue Tansy Essential Oil is a luxurious oil that is cherished and valued for its captivating scent and incredible clearing, calming properties. With a rich lush blue hue and a sweet, fresh scent, Blue Tansy provides unmatched support for healthy respiration during allergy season, helps soothe troubled or irritated skin, and supports self-esteem, confidence and enthusiasm year-round.  But that sweet scent can be sickenly sweet for some. Don’t be afraid to blend it with other oils so you can enjoy the benefits, but without the intensely sweet overtones.

Free & Clear Diffuser Blend

What you’ll do:

Add the essential oils to your diffuser and enjoy!

Palo Santo Essential Oil

Palo Santo

Originating in South America, Palo Santo comes from the Palo Santo tree that translates in Spanish as “holy wood.” But the cleansing, woodsy scent may have a licorice bend that might make it a little unpleasant. But its benefits make up for it. This sacred tree has been used for centuries for its healing properties and potential to ward off negative energy. Because of the powerful chemical makeup of this oil, it is well known for its healing, calming, and cleansing abilities. 

Island Tango Diffuser Blend

What you’ll do:

Add the essential oils to your diffuser and enjoy!


The calming scent of Patchouli can help balance feelings of worry and nervous tension, making the perfect partner for meditation and yoga, as well as an amazing tool for sleep. But what if Patchouli isn’t so calming, but just plain strong? This base note can be used sparingly so you still enjoy its benefits. Plus Patchouli is also widely known for its ability to support skin health and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and other blemishes.

  • Years ago I dropped a one ounce bottle of patchouli on my carpet and it SHATTERED. I became so sensitized to it because it saturated the carpet and I could not dilute it. I sucked in that scent for months. To this day I can’t tolerate that particular oil. I Usually substitute vetiver for it.

  • Geranium is one for me that I can only take in small doses or blended. Lavender I also prefer blended even though I like it (just not too strong). Ylang ylang and Patchouli I love. So maybe it’s personal preference but it is fun to learn how blending changes things and you never know what it may smell like. Fun to experiment 🙂 lavender and grapefruit is a blend I love.

  • I am in love with this article and excited to retry some oils that I have backed away from. Will do some more shopping and get the oils I need and see what new scents and benefits I can discover!

  • I hated the frankincense I bought some time ago. I forget the specific variety I purchased, but I thought it smelled like turpentine. I tried to diffuse a drop with other oils and it was just this horrid potent chemical like odor. I am going to experiment using one of the blends here, Silky Soft – the kid’s version – and Anti-Age. I’ve been reading about it’s effectiveness on — ahem—mature skin. I didn’t know what to blend it with to get it wearable or for use in a diffuser.

    1. Frankincense is wonderful for mature skin. You can try combining it with other oils like Neroli, Rose, Ylang Ylang, Lavender, Myrhh, or any of the other essential oils listed here.

  • This is wonderful advice. Ylang ylang essential oil is one of those oils that is a miss for me. But I am going to use the suggested blend today and see if this may be a winner…stay tuned!

  • Thank you for the suggestions! I’m a novice so this information is helpful. I’ll be sure to look for more recipes since I’m clueless as to which oils complement one another.

  • Ylang Ylang is one of my favorite essential oils. I use it in perfumes, roll on blends. Diffuser blends and body butter.
    Don’t really care for patchouli on its own, but in a blend ok. Of course cinnamon casa is wonderful and can be used in many ways. The other three I haven’t tried yet, but appreciate the write up on them.

  • I add them in a very small amount to scents I love. Helps balance out the smell I don’t particularly like.

  • This list has many of my favorite oils, the only one I haven’t tried is Petitgrain. I guess I will be ordering it tonight.

  • I don’t know a lot about the oils yet, but I’m excited to start using them. Your suggestions and blends sound amazing!

  • I have found that incorporating the more exotic or unloved oils in some of my perfume blends and allowing them to mature actually helps them to soften and meld or bond with compatible oils I really love. This is a process that can sometimes take anywhere from two to three months, and up to as long as six months. Its an adventurous exercise that requires patience, but fulfilling if you can achieve the right blend. In the end you have something that is unique and a signature scent.

  • I have come to love ylang ylang and patchouli over time. I actually reach for ylang ylang to add to blends. I also use ylang ylang and clary sage to make davana bearable (I really hate davana).
    Vetiver is one of my favorite “add just a drop” to a blend, but I definitely have to pay attention to what I add as it’s not my favorite smell (although I don’t hate it either).
    Of course my go-to is adding bergamot to everything, especially vetiver or patchouli. But that summer sleep blend with lavender, spruce black, and patchouli just may find itself in my diffuser tonight!

  • I just bought Blue Tansy the other day so I can’t wait to try some of these mixes for allergy relief. Thank you

  • Wonderful article. I am one of those people that loves all these strong oils. Thank you for providing the wonderful combinations that I can try in the diffuser.

  • The only one on this list that *really* bothers me (including even as 1 of many ingredients in some of PT’s synergies) is blue tansy-which, is very unfortunate because it was expensive and I am pretty sure it’s shelf-life has expired. Two oils that are not included on this list (but perhaps should be?) that I really want to love (because of their benefits) are 1. Valerian Root & 2. Garlic. I really want to even be able to *stand* them in a blend, but so far, no luck (and, like my blue tansy-sadly, shelf-life has been out-lived).

  • Seems like such an easy solution – to use less of it. One oil that I don’t like the smell of is lavender. We have it growing in the herb garden – it smells so good. It works like a miracle in taking the burn out of a burn. But that smell. . . I need to experiment with some other oils to blend it with.

  • Thank you for the advice. I will try the blends. Though my main consideration on purchasing my EOs are due to it’s therapeutic use (easing pain, over all health, and a lot more), but I also want it to smell nice since I use it everyday plus since I have a lot, I share it with my family and friends. I had few reactions like headaches or uneasiness when using Vetiver in the mix. I already narrowed that one so I am trying to blend it in lesser amount. This way I maximize its therapeutic effect.

  • I love most of my oils some I can’t mix it will trigger an asthma attack. I stay away from apple and cinnamon together bad, separately I am fine with. I love my coffee and vanilla oils…so yummy

  • I’m just learning about the fragrance wheel and blending. Good info since I tend to be heavy handed with the oils when diffusing.

  • I added a couple of these blends to my blends app to try. I am not a fan of patchouli, but if i put one drop in some blends, it really does make it pop. I like vetiver, too, but have never tried palo santo.

  • Definetly worth reading. Personally I struggle with Peppermint. After 2 minutes I feel nausea….I’m going ti mix it next time.

  • Both the article and the comments are helpful. I love Vetiver but stuggled with using the other EOs mentioned – no longer! Also – good to know about blending Ylang Ylang with Orange to tone it down (it’s a bit cloying). I love the flowers but the EO was surprisingly overpowering. Now I can give some of these a second change (esp. Patchouli and Petitgrain).

  • My favorite way is to blend – benefits of the synergy and it’s not as strong. Elemi & Kunzea have been interesting to play with.

  • Discovered Vetiver recently and fell in love with it. Diffuse it at night and really help with my sleep… deep quality sleep.
    Only issue is the oil is too thick and takes a long time for it to drip out.

  • Thank you for this! I recently purchased Palo Santo after reading all about its therapeutic properties and how it helps with meditation, but I just cannot stand the smell of it. I will be trying the blend you recommend. Here’s hoping it turns me into a believer!

  • great information I usually stick with the more common scents like lavender. with this information I feel better about venturing out to other blends and scents.

  • I like those ideas! I like to add small drops in my diffuser and I put the diffuser in a larger room to help with the strongness of the smell.

  • I ADORE Vetiver and blend this with Cedarwood and Lavendar for my son with ADHD. It’s a deep earthy, woodsy scent I LOVE. Ylang Ylang is not to my liking alone BUT indeed when combined it is lovely; great benefits. I purchased Blue Tansy and cant wait to blend!!!

  • Davana. This is exactly the reaction I had when I’d received it. Too fruity. What can I mix it with to tone it down?

    1. Excellent question! This is one that smelled waxy to me and I struggle with it as well. If you find it too fruity, then maybe a more intense floral like Rose or Jasmine would be ideal for you. Or you could try Patchouli and Vanilla as a bass note. Here’s a list of oils that blend well with Davana to get you started: Bergamot, Black Pepper, Frankincense Carteri, Jasmine Absolute, Mandarin, Neroli, Orange Sweet, Patchouli, Rose Absolute, Tangerine, Vanilla, Ylang Ylang Complete.

  • Really informative article! Learned some new things about some of my favorites like Ylang Ylang, Patchouli, and Palo Santo. I’ll definitely try some of the blends!

  • Vetiver is one of my favorite oils, it makes me feel relaxed and the smell always feels “holy” to me for some reason! I use Cassia in my shampoo to help with hair growth, but I may try in some blends now! I have also been debating palo santo since I smudge with the sticks and prefer it to sage, so I may pull the trigger now.

  • My favorite blend for my girls rooms are lavender and germ fighter together. When I diffuse them separately I think they are too strong.

  • I honestly don’t really care if a product doesn’t smell that great. If I know it works, I’ll use it anyway. None of the oil smells bother me that much. Vetiver is very strong but I don’t mind.

  • Ylang Ylang is definitely not my favorite. I find that with most oils that are too strong, I can cut back a drop or two and add sweet orange or lemongrass to make it more appealing to me.

  • Wonderful tips! Thank you! Looking forward to blending some of the overpowering oils to make them more manageable.

  • Yes! Really not a fan of strong floral scents, so I’ve found using less drops has really helped and provided a lighter scent when diffusing. Great read!

  • Ylang Ylang is a smell that I have ALWAYS hated in commercial products, it would trigger a migraine or make me feel sick. Come to find out, it was the manufactured, non-natural smell that was the problem. When I finally dared to tried Ylang Ylang EO, I was surprised how wonderful it was!! My next step is to try it in a perfume.

  • This is really good information! I remember when i first recieved Vetiver and Geranium in the mail and the excitement i had quickly vanished once i took a whiff.. but i learned to really love them and use them correctly so that it is not overpowering.:-)

  • The first time I smelled Vetiver I hated it, but now it’s one of my favorites. And I remember about five drops of Ylang Ylang in a bath and it was so strong it gave me a headache. That’s where being educated on using oils really is the best way to enjoy them.

  • Petitgrain sounds like it would smell great. I love Patchouli. I dislike Vetiver so much that it makes me shudder. I took a big whiff of it too 🙁

  • Vetiver and Ylang Ylang are definitely two that I struggle with. Vetiver smells like a wet dog to me…LOL

  • This is very helpful information. I have been struggling to find a combination that uses ylang ylang in a way that I can tolerate the scent. I am going to try the blend mentioned above to see if that is better.

  • Very informative. Thank you for suggestions on using oils that might smell too strong on my first pass.

  • I have always loved Vetiver, especially with a bit of citrus. On the other end I can not tolerate Blue Tansy in most recipes, Let it go is one of the only blends containing it that I find helpful.

  • I always thought I hated patchouli — glad to hear it might be worth trying again in combination with other oils! Thanks for the tip!

  • I struggle with some of these very potent smelling oils, but I think the key is using a very small amount of them like previousy mentioned I like the idea of trying the toothpick method to add just a little bit in. Love the above recipe suggestions.

  • This blog is extremely helpful! I love the smell of patchouli so I really thought I would love the smell of blue tansy. I was very surprised when I wrinkled my nose after opening it. I will try your suggested recipe. Thank you!

  • Thank you! I have been struggling for years with several oils, especially Ylang Ylang. I am looking forward to trying out these blends I’m mixing up a few of my own! I appreciate you addressing this subject.

  • very helpful and informative. As a brand new user to essential oils, it is very handy to come back and refer to!

  • Loved this article. Between this website & FB group, I’m excited to place my first order. I was kinda hesitant because its very overwhelming but knowing there is a guide to help you along it perfect!

  • Thank you so much for this article, it was very informative. I do have a couple oils that are too strong and now I know how to make them better.

  • I’ve discovered that sometimes you have to give yourself time to get used to a scent…I wasn’t crazy about Ylang Ylang when I first got it, but I have been adding it (by itself, very diluted) to coconut oil and using it as lotion after a shower before I go to bed and I find it to be a very relaxing scent. It’s grown on me! Many natural products are that way. I’m now trying to grow to love vetiver!

  • Love this article! Love all of these oils! Some are quite strong indeed. So thankful for the encouragement to use them minimally with other oils. I guess I didn’t realize that petitgrain is sourced in Paraguay. That’s awesome to know!

  • A great guide for someone like me who is a beginner in Essential Oils, it also helps me in knowing what other oils to try next!

  • I am excited and motivated to mix Palo Santo & Grapefruit, Mandarin & Sperimint – I think I am going to try mixing the blend Happy, which is mandarin, grapefruit – citrus blend with the Palo Santo – love reading this blog because there are wonderful ideas here – thank you Plant Therapy!

  • This article is a great companion piece to the Facebook group, where many people comment on their like/dislike of the oils profiled here. I appreciate the flexibility of the oils to be dominant or subtle depending on the amount and mixture. It’s a great tutorial on effectively and pleasantly using oils that may not be favorites after the initial sniff

  • I bought the olive oil base lotion and also purchased the organic blood orange oil. I just mixed 10ml of lotion with 7 drops of orange oil. Smells so good

  • Good information. Excited to be making the transition to Plant Therapy. I need to start expanding my collection!

  • Oh finally. Kept wondering what to do with ylang ylang. I have to give that a try! It is so potent! Will definitely give that diffuser blend a try. Thank you so much for posting this!

  • Thanks for the tips! I love Ylang Ylang. It’s one of my Ooo-la-la oils! Some of those others are stinky skunk oils. Oh well, to each his own.

  • Some good ideas here. I was feeling disappointed by the perfuminess of the Sensual blend recently purchased, but in reading this, I realized I love vertiver and a few drops of that might ground the scent and cut the floral sweetness.

  • Awesome, Thank you for the blend ideas. I do have some EO’s that are a bit strong for me and now I can find ways to use them!

  • I can definitely relate to “don’t judge an oil by the bottle”… I love a lot of blends with ceaderwood in it so I purchased a single of ceadarwood atlas. When I opened the bottle my initial reaction was that it smelled like cat pee however when I put it in the diffuser with sweet orange and lemongrass it smelled like heaven.

  • Thank you for the nice information! I have been struggling with the Ylang Ylang i got recently since i don’t like it much. Now I know other ways to try!

  • Super helpful and informative article. Most of these oils I don’t use, but learned a few things and definitely think I need to add a few to my collection. I’m not great at putting together blends for diffusing, so this will be helpful.

  • I love citrus scents so I add them to some of the ones I am not as into to make them a little more appealing to me.

  • I recently order and recieved Patchouli and when I opened the bottle to smell both my daughter and I had the same reaction. Eh, not our favorite smell, but when I used it in my facial oil blend with Frankincense, Lavender, Tea Tree and coconut oil it was lovely. I agree that just because you don’t like the smell straight out of the bottle, doesn’t mean you should write off that oil forever, you just need to find others that compliment it.

  • Billie says I love having blends to mix and more ideas to lus them for . i use alot of peppermint and lavender but am trying some new one when i found your site cant wait

  • I used patchouli, tea tree , peppermint and eucalyptus plus a few drops of lavender oil. My husband thought it was a little strong .

  • I have heard that the scents you most can’t tolerate are the ones your body needs most. Nice to find a tolerable way to incorporate those into my oil world!

  • I can’t stand patchouli. I keep it and use because of its benefits, but really dislike the aroma. It has what I think of as ‘old people smell’. I think it is because many seniors are smart, are aware of its benefits, and use it frequently. My mother loves the aroma (I rest my case, lol). I can instantly tell when someone has recently used patchouli. I have to use it in a blend to tone down the aroma.

  • Loved this article, I learned so much in just a few minutes. Geranium used to smell just awful to me. But with menopause setting in I found blending it with other oils beneficial and slowly over time the smell became less and less offensive to me.

  • I’m an oil newbie, so this was super helpful. I’ve added to my list of “must buy” and “curious about.” Thanks for helping me learn, and please post more like this!

  • I have used oils I am not particularly fond of in my garage. It reduces the musty smell yet I don’t need to be breathing it in all day long.

  • I’ve been dithering about Vetiver…now I think it will definitely go to the top of my wish list. I already have some really strong (to me) oils so appreciate this information. As a relative newbie, I’m not so adventurous yet about mixing oils. Guess I need to just go for it!

  • I’m new to the oil world but have a few more to go on my wish list after reading this!! Cinnamon Cassia being the first!! I have always loved the way cinnamon smells and with holidays fast approaching it will be in my collection soon!

  • I tend to enjoy most of the stronger smelling oils but I usually find if I don’t like an oil at first sniff that diffusing it aloone first (some oils just smell different diffused) to get an idea of the smell then mixing in some of my most loved oils usually leads me to find a blend I like.

  • This is so helpful. I was overpowered by ylang ylang and wondering what to do with the rest of the oil

  • On their own, I don’t care for Patchouli or Geranium, but together they’re ok. This blend helped my daughter with cramping and helped me with dry skin on my elbows.

  • Thank you so much for all these great diffuser blends. I have all but one of the oils so I will be trying them all soon!

  • I have tried my very best to like Clary Sage, which I purchased to prepare for childbirth. I have tried many different times to blend with other oils in a diffuser to make it palatable, but it always seems to have a strong presence. Then through repetition it has started to grow on me. If it’s an entire blend I do not seem to like, I prefer to give away to someone who appreciates it because I acknowledge how valuable the oil is.

  • I have used Ylang Ylang for years for hormone support. Love it mixed with other oils! I have always wanted to try Blue Tansy, I think I will now!

  • This is SUCH great information! I sometimes have a hard time blending certain oils to make a good diffusing combination, but these are great!

  • Great information! Just received Vetiver from JCAM . Looking forward to use as part of bedtime routine. I would like to try Ylang Ylang and Palo Santo now that I read about them. Thanks for the great oils!!!!

  • Copabia is an oil I can’t stand, but it has helped with digestive issues when I rub it on my tummy very diluted in coconut oil.

  • Thank you for posting this. I usually buy blends that have these in them already but this is very helpful.

  • I used to use Young Living but have liked what I have used so far from Plant Therapy and for alot cheaper!

  • Great ideas to learn ways I loving the oils you dislike. Patchouli is one oil I avoid at all costs but if I ever end up with a blend having it in the ingredients, I will know what to do! Thanks PT for the informative article.

  • I love most of the “offenders”, but have to agree that cassia and ylang ylang are not my favorite. I’ll try the blends and see if I like them better

  • I’m a EO recipe junkie. Love the diffuser blends. Will try mixing other oils mentioned to soften Tea Tree. I personally don’t like the smell but find the properties of the oil are extremely beneficial.

  • The only oil I have found so far to seem too much by itself to me is Ylang Ylang. Yet, some of my most favorite blends include it. These are great ideas.

  • I usually don’t mind most of the essential oil smells, even the strong ones. But some are definitely are better when they are mixed or diluted! I really like blending anyway, especially in roller balls, because it feels like I’m giving myself as many benefits as I can possibly fit into one small bottle!

  • That second picture would be cute as a sticker……. mind is coming up blank for a cute saying……. something to do with candy or rainbows…or maybe ….red and yellow and blue and white, all our precious in our sight.

  • You definitely got a couple of my least favorite oils on here. I appreciate the suggestions and look forward to giving them a try.

  • Love this article. I too, have had many experiences hating the smell of an oil at first, and then coming back to it to find myself having a totally different reaction. So give all your oils a chance!

  • Thank you! I needed this. There are a few oils I can’t stand, e.g. Davana What is your favorite way to use? Diffuser blends?

  • Great ideas! If using just 1 drop in the diffuser is still too much, some people dip a toothpick in the bottle to add a fraction of a drop that way. Creating a Master Blend is another fantastic way to add a tiny amount of a strong essential oil.
