My Favourite Essential Oil Recipes for Roller Bottles
Whether you’re staying at home, doing some quick errands or have to travel it can all take its toll on you. Travel whether it’s a road trip or by plane can have jet lag, mental exhaustion, aches and pains from being cooped up in a vehicle, anxiety and stress, all can come up while travelling away from home. Let’s face it just these challenging times can cause a lot of this too. This is one of the many reasons I’m going to share with you my favourite essential oil recipes for roller bottles. Lavender is one of my favourite essential oils. I also grow different varieties of lavender, these are just a few of my plants.
I love essential oils, they can help you manage symptoms and feel better quickly; and when used in a roller bottle they really do come in handy if you’re travelling away from home or just running errands. If you’re looking for essential oils we recommend doTERRA but use what you like. Just make sure it is a quality oil as some of the ones on Amazon have been proven to have fillers, chemicals and other nasty components.
Even better it’s fairly easy to make your own essential oil recipes for roller bottles:
Start with a 5mL Roller bottle (normally I use the larger 10mL size but if you’re planning on carrying on an airplane the smaller size is recommended. Check airport guidelines for carry-on liquids before packing and heading to the airport)
Add 10-12 drops of Essential oils, up to 25 drops for the larger size bottle (I’ve included my favourite essential oil recipes for travelling with roller bottles below)
Fill with any Carrier oil of your choice and shake well
Label your bottle(s)
These roller bottles are no mess and easy to transport. I like to keep 4 or 5 essential oil rollerball blends in my purse, car bag or carry-on for easy access.
