LotR Collection: Mount Doom Blend

LotR Collection: Mount Doom Blend

Curious about my Middle-Earth Oils? Here's a bit more about the Mount Doom blend, which is part of the LotR Collection!

MOUNT DOOM: seductive, citrusy spice cake to lure in unsuspecting ringbearers

  • Tangerine [Citrus reticulata] - fresh, fruity
  • Peru Balsam [Myroxylon balsamum] - sweet, warming, vanilla-like
  • Davana [Artemisia pallens] - deep, fruity, herbal
  • Cardamom [Elettaria cardamomum] - sweet, spicy
  • Palo Santo [Bursera graveolens] - woodsy, resinous
  • Cinnamon Bark [Cinnamomum zeylanicum] - sweet, spicy, warming


    I had a very different take in mind for Mordor's blend. Instead of focusing on the desolation of the realm (which would too closely resemble Moria), I decided to highlight the quality of the One Ring that constantly lures its ringbearers back toward Mordor. This makes Mordor tempting, almost seductive, and just like a rich, sugary dessert, giving in will come with consequences!


    Top Note: Tangerine. This particular citrus has a wonderful tartness to it that I thought would lighten the blend in the midst of the spices. It also reminds me of the fiery Eye of Sauron depicted in the movies.

    Middle Notes: Peru Balsam, Cardamom, and Cinnamon Bark. Despite the name, Peru Balsam has a distinctly vanilla-like scent, warm and slightly green. Mixed with cardamom and cinnamon bark, we have ourselves a spice cake fresh out of the fires of Mount Doom. Yeah... probably don't wanna eat that. Danger Cake.

    Base Notes: Palo Santo and Davana. Palo Santo is often burned for ritualistic purposes, so that burnt woodsy scent is perfect for a scent based on Mordor. Davana is a happy medium between herbal and fruity, and it adds wonderful depth while bridging the citrus top note with the spicy middle notes.
