10 Essential Oil Roll-on Recipes

Essential Oil Roll-on Recipe

I’ve been working on planning a “Make and Take” essential oils class and something we’ll be making at the class are essential oil roll-ons! Planning my class inspired this blog post. Try rolling these oils on your wrists, back of the neck, and/or on the bottoms of the feet as desired (don’t be afraid to use them a few times throughout the day).

  1. Sleep Tight: 10 drops Lavender + 10 drops Cedarwood + fill 10-ml roller bottle with carrier oil
  2. Cloud Nine: 5 drops Joy + 5 drops Valor + 5 drops Peace & Calming II + 5 drops White Angelica +  fill 10-ml roller bottle up with carrier oil
  3. Seasons Greetings: 20 drops Christmas Spirit + fill 10-ml roller bottle up with carrier oil
  4. Just Breathe: 10 drops Eucalyptus + 10 drops RC + fill 10-ml roller bottle up with carrier oil. This roll-on provides the most comfort when applied to the bottoms of the feet, chest, and throat.
  5. Wake Up Call: 20 drops En-R-Gee + fill 10-ml roller bottle up with carrier oil
  6. Get Stuff Done: 20 drops Clarity + fill 10-ml roller bottle up with carrier oil
  7. Just Chillax: 10 drops Stress Away, 6 drops Lavender + 2 drops Bergamot + 2 drops Ylang Ylang + fill 10-ml roller bottle up with carrier oil
  8. I’m Grounded: 20 drops Northern Lights Black Spruce + fill 10-ml roller bottle with carrier oil
  9. Uplift & Refresh: 14 drops Citrus Fresh + 10 drops Joy + fill 10-ml roller bottle with carrier oil
  10. Skin Soother: 10 drops Lavender + 10 drops Purification + full 10-ml roller bottle with carrier oil

To come up with your own essential oil roll-on recipes, simply look up an issue in your reference guide, pick one or a few of the oils listed for that issue, add about 20 drops (or a combo of 20 drops of essential oil) to a 10-ml roller bottle, and fill the rest of the bottle up with carrier oil.

How to Use Essential Oils

Essential oils are the aromatic liquids found within shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes, resins, seeds, etc. These oils, also known as nature’s living energy, contain unique constituents that provide therapeutic benefits. Wondering how to use essential oils? Follow the guide below – along with the individual instructions on each label – to experience the amazing, health supporting benefits of essential oils. Please also read the information on my “Essential Oil Safety and Usage Guidelines” page.

Inhalation

Inhaling certain essential oils heightens the senses and can have many positive effects on the body. Try these ideas to use essential oils for inhalation:

  • Inhale directly from the bottle.
  • Diffuse with any of Young Living’s diffusers (the Premium Starter Kit includes a diffuser).
  • Carefully pour hot water into a bowl and add a few drops of essential oil. Cover your head and bowl in a tent-like fashion with a towel. Breathe deeply and slowly.
  • Place a drop or two on a cotton ball and place the cotton ball near you.

Topical Application

Many essential oils are safe to use directly on the skin:

  • Place 1-3 drops of essential oil in the palm of your hand or directly on the desired application area. Massage onto the area of concern. Be sure to check the label on each essential oil bottle (or your reference guide) to see if the essential oil should be diluted with a carrier oil (olive oil, coconut oil, Young Living’s V-6 oil, etc).
  • Use one of Young Living’s essential oils that come with a roller ball attached. Or add a roller ball (aka: AromaGlide fitment) to a bottle of essential oil for targeted application. I just love the AromaGlide fitments!

Internal Consumption

internal consumption

Some essential oils make excellent dietary supplements or food flavorings. The label on each bottle of Young Living essential oil will tell you whether it is intended to be used as a dietary supplement. To take essential oils internally, try these tips:

  • Place 1-2 drops into a gelatin capsule and swallow it with water.
  • Add 1-2 drops to a glass of water, NingXia Red, tea, juice, or yogurt.
  • Add 1-2 drops (to taste) to your meals when cooking (I like some of my oils in smoothies).
  • Add 1-2 drops to a teaspoon of honey or agave nectar.
