When I use essential oils, I tend to want to mix several for maximum effectiveness. Plus, it’s good to dilute the oils with a carrier oil like coconut or jojoba to prevent irritation from the strong essential oils, especially when using on kids. Diluting does NOT dilute effectiveness, but I feel it has the added benefit of stretching how far expensive oil bottles can last.
Instead of mixing these each time, I’ve created some roller bottles that are handy to apply whenever I need. They are super easy to apply to your feet, stomach, wrists, neck, or wherever you need.
To get started, here’s what you’ll need to purchase:
- Essential oils – I recommend a high-quality brand; I buy most from Young Living.
- Glass refillable roller bottles – I LOVE these pretty bamboo top ones I found on Amazon.
- A liquid carrier oil – I use this fractionated coconut oil with a pump for easy filling.
- Labels – Dot stickers from my daughter’s craft drawer fit perfectly on top.
Here are a few of my go-to blends. To make them, I put a few drops of each essential oil in the bottle and then fill the rest with the carrier oil.
SLEEP – 10 drops Vetiver + 3 drops Cedarwood + 10 drops Lavender
SLEEP FOR KIDS – 5 drops Peace & Calming + 5 drops Lavender
