Making your own essential oil roller bottle is an easy and affordable way to customize your own natural wellness solutions. With just a few simple ingredients, you can create your own essential oil roller bottle that can be used for a variety of purposes, from reducing stress to soothing sore muscles.
What You'll Need
A carrier oil such as jojoba or fractionated coconut oil
Step 1: Sanitize
Before you begin, it's important to clean and sanitize your roller bottle and any other equipment you will be using. This will ensure that the roller bottle is free of any contaminants or impurities that could potentially harm your skin.
Step 2: Fill The Bottle With Carrier Oil
Once your bottle is clean and sanitized, you can start filling. Start by filling the bottle about 90% of the way with your carrier oil. This carrier oil will serve as the base for your essential oil blend and will help dilute the essential oils so that they are safe for use on the skin. If the bottle you are using has a small opening, you may want to consider using an essential oil funnel to make the process easier.
Step 3: Add Essential Oils
Next, it's time to add your essential oils. The typical ratio is around 20-30 drops of essential oil per 10ml of carrier oil. However, you can adjust the ratio to your personal preference. Some popular essential oils that can be used in roller bottles include lavender, peppermint, and eucalyptus. To see our full line of certified organic essential oils check out our shop page.
Note: To avoid potential skin irritation, make sure that the oils you are using are safe for topical application.
Step 4: Mix
Once you've added your essential oils, gently roll the bottle between your hands to mix the oils together. This will help ensure that the oils are evenly distributed throughout the roller bottle.
Step 5: Apply
Finally, apply the roller bottle to the skin as desired. You can use your roller bottle for a variety of purposes, such as reducing stress, soothing sore muscles, and even as a natural perfume.
It's important to note that essential oils are highly concentrated plant extracts and should be used with caution. If you have any medical conditions or are pregnant or breast feeding, please consult a health professional before using any essential oils.
Blends to Try
There are countless essential oil blends that can be used in a roller bottle, each with their own unique benefits. Here are a few popular blends to get you started:
Note: when using essential oils topically, always dilute them before use, and test for sensitivity in a small area of the skin before applying it to a larger area.
1. Sleep Support
Lavender, chamomile, and ylang-ylang essential oils can help to promote a restful sleep. These oils have a calming and soothing effect on the mind and body, and can help reduce feelings of insomnia and restlessness.
2. Immunity Boost

3. Clear Mind
Peppermint, lemon, grapefruit, lavender, and rosemary essential oils can help increase energy levels and improve mental clarity. These oils have a refreshing and invigorating effect on the mind and body, and can help reduce feelings of fatigue and sluggishness.

By selecting the oils that align with your specific needs and using a high-quality carrier oil, you can create a personalized blend that can be easily applied whenever and wherever you need it.
