Post Adding oils to carrier oils
What is the best way to introduce the oils to carrier oils? Should they be blended first then added to a carrier? Should they be be added to the carrier and mixed in a bowl before adding to a container for use...or is adding them all and shaking the container fine? (probably a silly question) :?:

How long will my blend last in a carrier oil like Jojaba or Rosehip seed oil?

I put each oil into either a 30ml or 100ml bottle, shake well, add the carrier oil(s) and shake again.

You can add a few drops of Rosemary Antioxidant to each mixture to prolong its shelf life, with no adverse effects. You can also do this with shorter-life essential oils such as citrus.
