Essential Oil Roller Blend Recipes

(You can buy the empty roller bottles right from Amazon!)


These are my own recipes I have developed through trial and error (well, not really error... you can't really go wrong). I'm not employed or contracted by any specific essential oil company, and I won't be including any brand names (as per the new legal regulations after a recent lawsuit). If you'd like more information about what brands I use personally, I'd be happy to answer your questions over on my facebook page.  I am, however, using the names of the blends used by the companies I use, because if I didn't, it wouldn't be much of a recipe, would it? 

There are tons of recipes out there, but I tend to find them to be on the weak side. If you're worried about over-doing it, just search Pinterest or google for essential oil blends. There's a million out there! I just prefer mine to cover all the bases.

Each ingredient is just a few drops (5-10, depending on the strength I'm looking for), then fill the bottle the rest of the way with Fractionated Coconut Oil or carrier oil of your choice. Keep in mind that adding a carrier oil reduces the shelf life of your oils, so you may want to look into carrier oil options.

Roller Blend Recipes

Pain Blend
Uses: muscle aches, fibromyalgia, swelling, arthritis, migraine, etc.

Millennia
Paine or Deeper
TendaCare
Marjoram
Lemongrass
Cypress
FCO (Fractionated coconut oil) 



Sleep Blend
Uses: At our house, each kid and Mom rolls this on their feet as we climb into bed. It has proven very helpful, especially for the kids. Safe for babies, as long as you're sure Baby won't put his/her feet in her mouth! If you're worried about that, roll onto back of neck or in with their nighttime lotion.

Ylang Ylang (I'm picky about the brand on this one. Ask me.)
Lavender
Balance or Serenity
FCO



Belly Blend
Uses: This is SO EFFECTIVE for any tummy troubles. Stomach "flu", indigestion, heartburn, nausea, or even just over-eating. We use this oil almost every single day on at least one of us. 

Lemon
Digestzen (I feel strongly about this brand on this one.)
Lemongrass
FCO 



ADD/Focus Blend
Uses: hyperactivity, difficulty concentrating, difficulty getting up and going on a project, memory issues, etc.

InTune
Vetiver
Insight (optional, but I LOVE this oil! Highly recommend)
Rosemary (if you're feeling up to it, read about the power of rosemary! I diffuse this oil in my home almost every day)
Balance (optional, but especially good for kids with hyperactivity)
FCO



Mood Lifter Blend
Uses: For mild depression, fatigue, overall sluggishness. Especially helpful when recovering from an illness and need to get back on your feet. 

Elevation
Citrus Bliss
Balance
Bergamot
FCO 



PMS Rescue Blend
Uses: I call this PMS blend, because that's what I use it for (way helpful for cramps!), but it's also very helpful post-partum, for both mood and physical symptoms. Includes fennel, which is useful in lactation. However, this blend is NOT recommended for pregnancy, as the Clary Sage can trigger premature labor.

ClaryCalm
Balance
Cypress
Lemongrass
FCO



Cold/Flu & Allergy Blend
Uses: Honestly I recommend using this daily and also diffusing this in the house at least throughout flu season! I also make a great sanitizing cleaning spray, I'll probably post at some point.

Lemon
Breathe or Breezy (though I prefer Breathe for scent)
Frankincense
Zendocrine
Peppermint
OnGuard or Deliverance
FCO



Anxiety Blend
Uses: Basically any kind of anxiousness, fear, social anxiety, etc. It's similar to the sleep blend, so it could possibly contribute to drowsiness, but it never does for me.

TerraShield (also used as bug repellent, but I find it most useful for my social anxiety)
Balance
Bergamot
Ylang Ylang
Grateful Heart
FCO



Grief/Depression Blend
Uses: I developed this one to help a friend through an especially difficult divorce. It's also very helpful for my depression and my son's tendency to feel down for no apparent reason.

Geranium (go easy on this one, the scent is STRONG)
Bergamot
Elevation
Insight
Digestzen
Lemon
FCO



Acne/Scar Blend
Uses: stretch marks, eczema, scars, acne, basically any skin problem.

Helichrysum
Melaleuca
Lavender
Frankincense
FCO, almond oil, or vitamin E oil



Hand Sanitizer
Tip: Notice this one is different! No FCO in this blend, it's water instead. Put it in a small spray bottle or roller and have kids use it several times/day. Safer than sanitizer with alcohol and smells good too. 

OnGuard or Deliverance
Lemon or Wild Orange
Water


I hope these are helpful for you! You can buy the blends on my Etsy page if you want, or build your own stock of oils and mix your own! It's actually really fun. Let me know if you use them, pass them on, or have any questions. I'd LOVE to hear from you all! xoxo
