Based upon my experience, I would forego Jasmine, as its effects are somewhat similar to the much less costly Ylang Ylang. If you decide to use it, however, only one or two drops in the mixture would be enough.

I would also add Sandalwood to the blend, and jojoba would be a very good and relatively inexpensive carrier oil.

As for percentages, I would use 3 parts Bergamot, Clary Sage and Sweet Orange, 2 Ylang Ylang, Neroli and Rose, and 4 Sandalwood, with 3-5% total of essential oils. The blend can be adjusted according to your brother-in-law’s response.
