Essential Oil Roll-On Recipes Make Aromatherapy Convenient

Part of making essential oil blends that work for you, is using methods that work for your lifestyle.

If you find a great bath salt recipe, but you never take baths . . . you can usually adapt that blend to use in the shower.

If you see a diffuser blend you want to try, but you don’t have a diffuser . . . you can often adjust and make that blend in an Aromatherapy inhaler.

Aromatherapy should be simple and convenient, and your blends should work for YOUR lifestyle.

That’s why I love essential oil roll-on recipes!

Here are 6 reasons why essential oil roll-on recipes are so fun and convenient...

  1. They are quick and simple to make!
  2. They are easy to use.
  3. A roll-on bottle fits so easily in a bag or your pocket. It can go everywhere with you.
  4. It’s a mess-free way to apply a blend (you don’t get the oil all over your hands).
  5. Essential oil roll-on recipes make great gifts!
  6. You can use them for therapeutic blends, for emotional support, and even for natural perfume.

Some roll-on bottles hold about 10 ml of a blend. That means they’re about the size and shape of a lip gloss or lip balm.

But there are also roll-on bottles that hold a full 1 oz (30 ml) of a blend. These are so great for moisturizing oils, or for a therapeutic blend that you want to use on a larger area. (Like your belly, for example.)

I want to share 2 essential oil roll-on recipes with you today!

One is for a natural perfume, and the other is called “Belly Bliss.” That one is for digestion and different kinds of stomach discomfort.

First, let’s make some natural perfume!

Have you ever bought a new perfume and loved it . . . only to find that you lose interest in it a few days later, or didn’t really like it as much as you thought you did? Maybe it felt like “you” in the moment when you bought it, but in your daily life it doesn’t feel like it reflects your true self as much.

Making essential oil roll-on recipes is a wonderful way to create an all-natural perfume that is all you!

You can combine essential oils that you love to create something truly unique.

Here’s a recipe I recently made (which I am loving!)

I Am Always Unique Roll-On Perfume!

  • 1 oz (30 ml) Vanilla-infused jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis)
  • 5 drops Pinyon Pine essential oil (Pinus edulis)
  • 3 drops Mandarin essential oil (Citrus reticulata)
  • 1 drop Vetiver essential oil (Vetiveria zizanoides)
  • 5 drops Jasmine absolute (Jasminum grandiflorum)

To make an essential oil roll-on perfume, all you have to do is put the jojoba into the bottle, then add your essential oils.

Snap the roller top into place, shake gently, and that’s it! You’re done!

Roll your perfume onto your wrists, neck, and anywhere you like.

This recipe makes a full 1 oz (30 ml) of perfume.

If you like, you can pour it into a smaller, 10 ml roll-on bottle. You’d have three 10 ml bottles of perfume!

You can also adjust the recipe for a 10 ml roll-on bottle like this:

  • 10 ml Vanilla-infused jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis)
  • 2 drops Pinyon Pine essential oil (Pinus edulis)
  • 1 drop Mandarin essential oil (Citrus reticulata)
  • 1 drop Vetiver essential oil (Vetiveria zizanoides)
  • 2 drops Jasmine absolute (Jasminum grandiflorum)

This natural perfume has a few different aromatic elements all working together.

The vanilla jojoba (one of my favorite carriers for natural perfume!) creates a warm, smooth, comforting base. Honestly, it would be gorgeous as perfume all by itself!

Some perfumers use “top notes,” “base notes,” and a “heart note” to create a balanced all-natural perfume recipe. But you don’t have to include all three notes in your own natural perfume.

It’s all about what you like!

Ready for our second essential oil roll-on recipe?

This one is an excellent friend when you’ve eaten a little too much, when you feel nauseous or have a tight stomach, and for other kinds of stomach discomfort.

It’s made in a larger roll-on bottle, since we’re going to use it on our bellies and low backs.

Roll-On Belly Bliss

  • 1 oz (30 ml) Jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis)
  • 12 drops Roman Chamomile essential oil (Chamaemelum nobile)
  • 2 drops Ginger essential oil (Zingiber officinale)
  • 2 drops Peppermint essential oil (Mentha × piperita)

Combine your jojoba and essential oils in the roll-on bottle, and snap the roller-top into place.

Use your blend on your belly and low back any time your stomach feels upset.

I chose three essential oils for this blend that have AMAZING reputations for calming upset stomachs! They are known to calm spasms, ease cramps, soothe nausea, and support you through feelings of indigestion and being “too full.”

This is a great blend to take with you when you’re going out to dinner, or you’re going to try a new kind of food.

I hope you love these essential oil roll-on recipes!

But let me just say . . . once you start making essential oil roll-on recipes for yourself and your friends, you’ll want to be sure to have a lot of labels for your bottles. Roll-on recipes are so fun, and you might wind up having a lot of blends that look alike!
