I made mayonnaise for the first time the other day (easier than I thought it would be), & added mustard powder for some flavour. I may have added a bit too much mustard, as was  little strong.  Does anyone have any other ideas, such as herbs to add for flavour.  And would grape seed oil be ok, maybe a bit lighter instead of olive oil. I did not want to buy ready-made mayo from supermarket due to the unhealthy oils and additives.

I personally prefer homemade mayo with olive oil because it has more flavor than the grape seed oil.  The last batch I made I used some macadamia nut oil, some grape seed and some olive oil.  I will go back to using all first cold press extra virgin olive oil next time. Try different beneficial oils in different batches to see what you personally prefer.  

It is important to use freshly squeezed lemon juice as the last ingredient you mix in. You need a bit of sea salt also. And yes, you have to be careful of how much mustard you use.  A tiny bit of mustard powder goes a LONG way!

You can add herbs, but I would suggest adding just a tiny bit to a partial batch to see what appeals to your taste buds.  I love dill weed in my mayo if it is going to be used with fish. A pinch of tarragon would make it "fish friendly" also!  Some of the stronger herbs like rosemary or thyme might not be very good.  It's a matter of personal taste.

I use fresh egg, lemonjuic,e a honey mustard,salt and a combo of macadamianut oil and EVO
EVO is too strong for me alone ( we can only get very peppery biter ones here)
and I dont want to use grapeseed oil in huge ammounts - crappy industrial oil full of omega6

I like that as a start- sometime I add a liltle tarragon and chives  works lovely on a steak Mayo bearnaise style

A little sweetener can marry flavors together to create a more savory balance. Takes the edge off. I add it to many sauces.

I use EVOO, lemon juice, egg and my herbs are sea salt, a little dill, tarragon and a pinch of dry mustard and a tiny squeeze of honey or agave.  I agree with Averno that savory needs a bit of sweet
for balance.

This super taster could not eat the mayo I made with all EVOO. Yuck! 'Way too strong for me! Not bad mixed with rice bran oil, though.
