I am frequently asked how I make my mixes and magic “potions” that I use all the time for my kids, myself, and even my dog. What people are referring to are the essential oil roller bottles that are so often in my purse, in my kids’ backpacks, and all over the bottom of my bags.

They’re gifts, they’re therapy, they’re indispensable in my life!

HOW DO YOU MAKE ESSENTIAL OIL ROLLER BOTTLES?

First, you have to have a recipe, even if you’re just going to make a roller bottle that’s only one oil. (You have to know that, right? And that’s the recipe!)

There are so many recipes out there. You can find great blends to make for yourself by looking in any number of places, or you can devise your own by considering the impact you want and the properties of the oils.

Though I have quite a few blends that I share regularly, this is my current favorite, “Embracing Gratitude.” I am making this mix for my loyal customers as a thank you and I hope they enjoy the feelings of peace and enjoyment it can bring.

MY “SECRET” TRICK FOR ROLLER BOTTLE BLENDS:

My trick with the mixes is I always use 10 drops per oil in my blend. That is mostly for ease of mixing. When I do it this way, I never forget the recipe or have to look it up after I have made it the first time.

If you were using the blend on small children or people with sensitive skin, you would probably lower the number of drops, but 10 drops just keeps it simple for me.

I put all of the oils in the bottle and then top it off with a fractionated coconut oil. (Fractionated coconut oil does not harden when it gets cold and it stays very stable in the bottle.)

WHAT’S IN THIS ESSENTIAL OIL BLEND AND WHY I CHOSE THESE OILS:

  • Wild Orange: Inspires abundance, creativity, and a positive mood.
  • Grapefruit: Teaches true respect and appreciation for one’s physical body.
  • Bergamot: Opens the soul up to hope and offers courage to share inner feelings.
  • White Fir: Teaches each generation to look for the gifts they have to offer and opportunities for new beginnings.
  • Geranium: Encourages emotional honesty, love, and forgiveness.
