Roller bottles are so simple to make and great for on the go! What better way to enjoy your favorite scents and create gifts for your friends. I purchased 10 ml bottles since they fit perfectly in my purse. I highly recommend you use a roller bottle with a metal ball, especially if you are using any type of citrus oils. Metal roller tops help oils glide on smoothly.
You will need:
- 10 ml glass roller bottles
- Fractionated coconut oil or carrier oil of choice
- Small funnel or pipettes (optional)
- Therapeutic-grade essential oils
For 10 ml bottles, I usually use 15 drops of essential oil and then fill the rest with carrier oil. For kids' blends, I suggest reducing that to 5-10 drops. I prefer to use fractionated coconut oil because it does not stain your clothes and lasts longer than other oils. Essential oils do not have an expiration date; although, once mixed with a carrier oil they take on the expiration date of that carrier. Keep in mind citrus oils can be photosensitive. It is advised to wait a minimum of 6-12 hours before exposing skin where you have applied citrus oils to UV rays or sunlight.
Vinyl labels can be created for your bottles or use stickers or rub-ons to personalize them.
Do you have any special recipes or blends you like to use? I always keep a bottle of calming at my desk for those stressful days.
