Roller Recipes for Essential Oils
I love using rollers to apply my essential oils topically. In my opinion, it is one of the easiest ways to use oils! These little DIY bottles are so convenient and avoid the hassle of having to take out each individual oil every single time I want to apply. The recipes below allow you to travel with your favorite pre-made blends all packaged in a convenient roller. All you have to do is remove the cap, and apply!
When I initially got started using oils, I did not know about the concept of a "roller". I would remove a specified oil, remove the cap, and drop it where I needed. This made using multiple oils at once a bit of an inconvenience.
Enter the concept of "rollers"! Looking back, I have no idea what took me so long to catch wind of this concept. It is soo easy! Once I figured out how simple and efficient it was to make your own roller blends, I began to view oils in a whole new way.
Transporting rollers is a breeze. They can be carried or stored in almost anything. From purses to diaper bags, backpacks to gyms bags, in a locker or in an end table, your blend will never have to be too far away. I love having my favorite ones in my essential oil bag that I just toss right in my purse or travel case.
I use a variety of roller bottle sizes. Typically, I use 5ml or 10ml around my house. For any friends or family members that I want to give a sample, I do occasionally use the 2mL. I think that everyone can use a Stress Away roller in their pocket. All my favorite roller bottles that I use can be found on my supply page.
Below you will find some of my favorite roller recipes. Nevertheless, I still recommend you get a few essential oil books to learn some of your own preferences for these blends. Keep in mind, Young Living has over 300 essential oils. That is a ton of potential combinations. My two favorite books on this are the Oil & Glass Recipe Book and Vitality: The Young Living Lifestyle. For all of our book recommendations, please see our books section. We also have a post where we reviewed our top 5 essential oil books.
The recipes listed below are for 10ml roller bottles and for adults only. If you are looking for roller recipes for expecting mothers, babies, children, or pets, please follow safety guidelines and proper dilution ratios. You can find these guidelines and ratios in Gentle Babies and the Animal Essential Oil Desk Reference Guide.
Making your own rollers is actually very simple and quite a bit of fun!
Here are the steps:
When I make my rollers, I customize the blends to support my body and what I need at the time. This is where my essential oils desk reference or pocket reference guide comes in handy when choosing my oils!
When I got started using essential oils, I was really concerned about following recipes accurately, measuring, and putting the “correct” number of essential oils in my products. If one or two extra drops get into the bottle, you will likely be fine! A little piece of advice that would have helped me greatly: Take a deep breath, and move on with your recipe! Keep in mind that each recipe includes a significant amount of carrier oil which will act as to dilute the potency of your oils. If you simply cannot go onward without worrying about potency, the remove a designated number of drops from any of the oils you did not yet use that are part of your recipe. This will allow you to stay in the neighborhood of the 40 drop total for your 10ml roller.
If you are using a 5ml bottle instead, follow a 20 drops total rule, and if I am creating these for a little one I change the recipe to follow proper dilution ratios.
