Even though it’s possible to just inhale an essential oil directly from the bottle, it is not the best approach to get your essential oils to do their job. Trying to get therapeutic aromatherapy effects through the sense of smell alone is not as effective as applying the oils to your skin and letting your whole body system absorb them. Essential oils are very concentrated and can irritate the skin if not diluted.


You only need 3 things to make your own aromatherapy roll-ons:

  1. Roll-on bottle. Look for stainless steel roller balls vs. plastic roller balls for the bottle topper. They apply nicer. Also be certain you only utilise glass roller bottles they last much longer and are more hygienic. Like the ones we have in stock HERE
  2. Carrier oil. Coconut Oil has an indefinite shelf life so it’s a great option to use for carrier oil. It’s also relatively thin and therefore works well in a roll-on with the roller ball topper. If you’re going after more specific skin care qualities of the carrier oil, you can also use other carrier oils of choice.
  3. Essential oils. Use either single oils or a blend. Create your own blend or use ready-made blends of choice. The options are endless and this is where the roller bottle DIY recipe fun really begins! Always buy quality oils so you understand what you are using on your body.

The easiest way to make an essential oil roller bottle is to fill your 10 mL glass roll-on with carrier oil, and add 6 drops of any single oil or oil blend you have available at home.

Yes! it is that simple, and ready to use in minutes! Share with friends this simple way to have aromatherapy on the go.
