Admittedly, I’m a lover of pretty things, so the wide variety of gorgeous rollers available drew me into wanting to make some for myself! You can search Etsy or small shops that make essential oil accessories, to find some of your own.
(several of these bottles were gifts, so I don’t have a source, but the gold top clear rollers are from Whimsy + Wellness and the gorgeous roller necklace is from Roadkill Gems!)
The carrier oil of your choice (I prefer Young Living’s V-6 or organic fractionated coconut oil)
Glass roller bottles
Young Living Essential oils
Optional: add ins like dried flower petals or crystals
Carrier oil allows you to dilute essential oils that may be more potent (especially for kiddos), it stretches out your essential oils and allows them to last longer, it covers a greater surface area of your skin and prolongs absorption
I’m here to share a few of my absolute favorite roller blends! The number of drops that you choose to use is up to you, if you’d like to dilute more feel free! Each recipe shared is for a 10ml roller bottle.
