Guys, I am a machine when it comes to making essential oil roll-ons! My favourite nightly routine is rolling lavender essential oil on my temples and upper chest. The scent relaxes my mind and body at the end of a long day. My family has been using essential oils for various health ailments for several years, but, it wasn’t until recently that I figured out that I can make my own version of the popular oil roll-ons.
Since the holidays are coming up, I am going to share some of my favourite DIY essential oil roll-ons with friends and family. It’s a homemade gift that is quick, easy, and affordable to make. I made about six bottles in less that 30 minutes. I focused on scents that combat stress, headaches, minor scrapes and burns, and nagging coughs and colds. I used fractioned coconut oil as my carrier oil, but you can use jojoba oil or almond oil instead, if you wish.
Looking for a DIY holiday gift for friends and family? Here’s how I made my DIY essential oil roll-ons.
- Fractionated Coconut Oil
- Essential oils, peppermint, lavender, tea tree, and breathe blend (I used doTERRA oils)
- 10 ml glass roll-on bottles with stainless steel roller balls, amber coloured (the darker colour glass is better for maintaining the quality of the oil)
- Stainless steel funnels
- Adhesive vinyl letters, or Silhouette America vinyl to cut with cutting machine
Step 1: Pour essential oil drops into the bottle. You do not need to use the funnel for this step. A general rule of thumb with the 10 ml bottle is to put 15-30 drops of essential oil into it. For my roll-ons, I used the following ratios.
Relax: 18 drops of Lavender
Cold: 20 drops of doTERRA Breathe blend
Headaches: 7 drops of Peppermint and 10 drops of Eucalyptus
Boo-Boos: 8 drops of Lavender and 7 drops of Tea Tree
Step 2: Fill the remainder of the glass bottle with fractioned coconut oil. The mini funnel is a life-saver on this step.
Step 3: Add the roller-ball top, and then the cap.
Step 4: Label the bottles. You can make up fun names, or include a list of the ingredients. I labeled my bottles with the ailments, as well as the essential oils on the other side of bottle.
