May 16, 2016 3:05 pm Published by

With all this talk of essential oils, I bet you’ll be wanting to take them with you wherever you go! For good reason, too! Essential oils aren’t just something you spritz on your pillow at night. They have so many uses that you’ll wish you had one on hand for every occasion.

I’m always on the go, and there are countless moments throughout the day where I’m tired, I’m feeling down….and good god, a pimple!! Where are my essential oils when I need them?? Rollerballs are here to save the day! A perfect little fun-sized container for our precious EO blends.


What You’ll Need

  • Tinted glass roller bottles
  • An eyedropper (many rollerball sets will come with these)
  • Essential oils
  • A carrier oil. Any of the following will work wonderfully:
    • Fractionated coconut oil
    • Sweet almond oil
    • Olive oil
    • Sunflower oil


The Recipes


Let’s start with a blend that treats the arch-nemesis that we are plagued by from time to time, if not chronically. Whether a pimple is predictable on a daily basis or pops up at the most inconvenient moment, you need a remedy! So here it is.

  • 20 Drops Lavender Oil
  • 20 Drops Tea Tree Oil
  • 20 Drops Frankincense
  • Fill with the desired amount of carrier oil and shake to mix


This past month has kept me super busy. I’ve entertained house guests, taken road trips and long plane rides, and “sleep” has become a word from a foreign language. Here’s a blend that will wake you up and invigorate your senses. Use this blend to pull you through a study session or to bring clarity to a mental fog while you’re in the office.

  • 8 Drops Eucalyptus Oil
  • 6 Drops Peppermint Oil
  • 30 Drops Lemon Oil
  • 2 Drops Cinnamon Oil
  • Fill with the desired amount of carrier oil and shake to mix



No one likes feeling down, but it happens. It’s part of being human. Maybe someone said something that made you feel less than, or not a part of. Perhaps you are mourning a loss, or you are disappointed about expectations that weren’t met. Try this rollerball blend for some comfort and to improve your attitude. This blend works well when inhaled. Apply it to your hands, cup your hands over your mouth and nose, and breathe deep.

  • 20 Drops Bergamot Oil
  • 20 Drops Frankincense
  • 20 Drops Lavender Oil
  • Fill with the desired amount of carrier oil and shake to mix


I saw this “Lumber Jack Blend” and couldn’t leave it out! I’m a sucker for all things sandalwood. Have your favorite counterpart use this as his cologne or even as an oil for that beard he’s been sporting. Can’t wait to try this out on my main squeeze!

  • 10 Drops Patchouli
  • 10 Drops Sandalwood
  • 10 Drops Clary Sage
  • 10 Drops Frankincense
  • Fill with the desired amount of carrier oil and shake to mix

Hope these recipes remedy some of the things that afflict you! We would also love to hear any of your tried and true EO rollerball concoctions!
