Yes, you can mix essential oils into resin. You can use any type of essential oil that is safe to use on the skin (non-comedogenic).
I would avoid using citrus essential oils for this purpose and stick with more gentle scents like lavender, jasmine, and rosemary.
Can you use essential oils in resin?
How? By adding a drop or two of an oil that will run down into the rest of the resin and change its color. For example, imagine using a blueberry scented oil when making your gummy bear-shaped bath bombs.
Another way that some people choose to use essential oils is by adding flavor into their resins like cinnamon spice or lavender vanilla sugar scrubs for instance!
It’s important here too though not all essential oils are edible so please make sure before using them on any food items such as this one!

What is the mixture of resin and essential oil?
To make a resin with essential oil, you need the following items:
- 1 part resin (Bulk Apothecary sells all-natural rosin powder)
- 3 parts alcohol (you can use vodka or rubbing alcohol)
- 10 drops of essential oils (for example, lavender)
Can you add oil to resin?
You can’t add essential oils to resin.
Essential oils are not soluble in resin, so adding them will not cause the resin to dissolve. They also aren’t compatible with resin because they’re not water-based, so they might cause your resin to cloud or cure improperly.
If you want to add an aroma—or any other substance—to a finished piece of jewelry, then you’ll have to apply it externally (e.g., by rubbing some onto a necklace chain).
Can you add scent to epoxy resin?
If you’re looking for a way to add scent to resin, essential oils are a great choice. They can be added directly to the resin in order to create a scent for your candle or another project.
Essential oils are highly concentrated oils that have therapeutic properties and scents. The oils are extracted from plants through steam distillation or cold pressing, then mixed with water (or some other solvent) in order to dilute them enough so they can be applied topically on the skin.
Can I scent resin?
You can scent resin. When you add fragrance to resin, you’re essentially making your own perfume, which is a lot of fun!
There are two types of resins: natural and synthetic. The most common type in the United States is made from tree sap, but other plants such as pine and spruce also yield resins that can be used to make scented jewelry or other craft projects.
Resin has been used for thousands of years and has many uses beyond fragrancing jewelry. It was used as an adhesive in ancient Egypt; the Egyptians also created mummies with a mixture of resin, beeswax, and animal fat that would dry into a hard substance over time (this same process was used by Native Americans for their mummies).
How do you make fragrance resin?
There are a few different ways you can make fragrance resin, which is the most common kind of resin and is used for making jewelry and other crafts.
The process described below uses essential oils and a base resin, but you can also use other types of resins to create your own customized scent.
You may also want to add colors to your resin when it’s in its liquid form before turning it into a solid—this will allow you to customize the color of each bead or charm as well:
Which essential oils are resins?
There are three essential oils that will work well with resin: frankincense, myrrh, and sandalwood. Frankincense is a sweet-smelling resin that has been used for centuries, while myrrh is also a type of resin that has been used as incense since ancient times.
Sandalwood is also a type of tree-related to frankincense and myrrh trees but produces different resins from them. These three types of trees are native to Ethiopia in Africa or India; however, their oils can be found easily online or at specialty stores if you live in an area where they aren’t common (or if you don’t have access to the trees themselves).
To simplify things further: if you want something spicy like clove or nutmeg (think pumpkin pie), then cinnamon oil works well with these types of resins because both have spicy undertones when mixed together.
If instead you want something more woodsy like cedarwood or cypress oil would work nicely with other types such as frankincense because they tend towards earthy scents when combined together.”
Can you put frankincense resin in oil?
Yes, you can put frankincense resin in oil. Frankincense resin is a natural resin, which means it’s a solid and not a liquid.
It’s also an essential oil made from the plant Boswellia carteri or Boswellia serrata, but it’s not literally “frankincense oil” because that would be referring to the liquid kind of frankincense (also called oleo-gum-resin).
So how does this work? Well, if you have some frankincense resin with your other oils for making perfume or aromatherapy blends, simply add up to 20% by weight of your base blend: so if your base blend is 50 grams (about 2 oz), 10 grams would be enough to get started (or more if desired).
