As you get started with Essential Oils, you’ll begin to appreciate and cherish glass roller bottles – they are the most sufficient way to dilute your oils to make them last longer, most essential oils are most safe for the skin when diluted, and roller bottles make it easiest to apply essential oils to your skin.
Essential Oils only work if you have them when you need them which is why I carry several customized Roller Bottles with me everywhere I go. For instance, I like to have the Energy Blend with me during the work day, I like to have the Sound Asleep blend with me when I’m at a hotel or an AirBnb, and I like to have the Upset Belly bottle with me when I’m having an indulgent dinner with friends. If I’m sick, I carry the Breathe Roller, and if everyone around me is sick, I have my Immunity Blend.
Essential Oil Roller Bottles are super simple to prepare and even easier to use. You can purchase roller bottles on Amazon, at natural grocery stores, or through my Etsy Shop. You may want to invest in a small funnel and a roller bottle key to help you in preparation as well.
In a 10mL bottle, I like to add 20-30 drops of Essential Oils and fill the rest of the bottle with a carrier oil. A few carrier oils I like to use are jojoba oil, fractioned coconut oil, or Young Living’s V6 oil. I’m always careful not to overfill my roller bottles – I like some room to “shake” the bottle to blend the oils together.
