Ideal Terpene Blending Ratios
In the aromatherapy world, fragrances are distinguished by their ratio of fragrance oils to alcohol carrier. For example, a perfume is 30%, eau de parfum is 15%, an eau de toilette is 8%, a cologne is 5%, and a room spray may be 3%, with the rest consisting of alcohol. In the case of perfumes, the alcohol is considered the "carrier".
When working with active ingredients such as CBD in foods, keep in mind that too great a concentration of terpenes can be overwhelming. Similarly, a typically flavored beverage for example may only require a 1% ratio of the flavoring oils, while a capsaicin infused beverage needs a ratio of 1 in 50,000 in order to be safe - with terpenes, it's not as extreme, but starting low is wise - 1-3%, and then adding more as needed, but would not recommend exceeding a 10% ratio - higher concentrations can be very irritating to the senses.
