One of the best things about essential oils is their ability to solve common everyday ailments naturally vs taking an over-the-counter medicine. Most of the common items in your medicine cabinet (pain relief, sleep aids, digestive aids, cuts and wounds ointments), can be replaced with a few drops of essential oil.
Depending on the ailment our family is treating, we’ll either…use the oil and apply it directly, apply the oil directly with a carrier oil, or mix the oils together in roller bottles. And that is what I want to share with you…my personal “list” of essential oil rollerball blends & recipes for families.
There are several great things about rollerball bottles. They are premade mixtures – which saves time when something hurts; they are easy to apply – roll it on your feet, your neck, your wrists and you are ready to go; and they stretch out oils, making them last longer by using a carrier oil. (By using a carrier oil, you are not diluting the effectiveness of the oil, you are just giving your oil more coverage with help of something to carry it where you want it to go.)

Here are a couple of things you need to know and purchase before you start making your roller bottles.
- You need 10 mL glass roller bottles. These are my favorite.
- You need a carrier oil. I like (and use) this avocado oil, fractioned coconut oil (my personal favorite) or almond oil.
- You need essential oils.
- Optional: Plastic droppers. I like using these to make up my roller bottles. They are inexpensive and make sure all of the oil gets in the bottle vs on the counter or the outside of the essential oil bottle.
You’ll place the number of drops, per recipe, in a 10 mL rollerball and then fill to the top with your carrier oil of choice. Roll the blends over your neck, feet and wrists (and if applicable, the place that hurts). If there are special instructions, you’ll see them at the end of the recipe. Finally, to be most effective, apply less oil and apply it more often.
