Next week I will show you how easy it is to make your own homemade hand lotion. Essential oils can also be used to make your own rollers. What is a homemade roller using essential oils? If you are familiar at all with essential oils you know how useful roller bottles are to make topical applications of oils so simple.

Homemade rollers can be used for many different remedies. You can make roller bottles using single oils or make a blend. Blends are a mixture of a carrier oil such as jojoba oil, grape seed oil or sweet almond oil mixed with several drops of an essential oil.

Using essential oil roller bottles will also help you save money, as your essential oils will last longer. Usually you add ten drops of an essential oil to your roller bottle and then fill the rest of the bottle with your carrier oil. My favorite essential oil are from Young Living.

This chart is based on using a 10mL roller bottle.

  • Newborn-6 months: 1-2 drops
  • 6 months- 2 years: 1-3 drops
  • 2 -5 years: 2-5 drops
  • 5-12 years: 5-10 drops
  • 13 and up: 15-20 drops

Once you make your homemade roller bottles you can use them to roll onto just about any area of your bottle except your eyes, inside your ears or any mucous membrane. My favorite places to use the roller on the bottom of my feet, my neck or on my wrist.

There are many recipes for various roller blends, I use the Essential Oils Pocket Reference which is a wonderful resource. You can look up an ailment and they will list various essential oils that you can use.
