What are Roller Bottles?
Roller bottles are small, portable containers usually made from glass or high-quality plastic that come with rollerball tops. They allow you to apply essential oils easily by rolling the oil directly onto your skin or other surfaces, providing a more controlled application while preventing spills and wastage.
Why Use Roller Bottles for Essential Oils?
There are several benefits to using roller bottles with essential oils:
- Convenience: Roller bottles are easy to use on-the-go, making them a popular choice for busy individuals and travelers alike.
- Safety: Diluting essential oils with carrier oils in roller bottles reduces the risk of skin irritation or sensitivity from direct contact with concentrated oils.
- Controlled application: The rollerball top allows you to apply a precise amount of oil to the desired area and avoid spills.
- Customization: Mixing your own unique blends of essential oils in roller bottles offers a personalized aromacology experience tailored to your specific needs and preferences.
How to Make Your Own Roller Bottle Blends
Creating your own roller bottle blends is a simple process that allows you to experiment with different oils and their therapeutic properties. Here's a step-by-step guide:
- Choose your roller bottle: Select a glass or high-quality plastic roller bottle that suits your needs. Dark-colored bottles or opaque containers help protect essential oils from sunlight and maintain their potency.
- Select essential oils: Based on desired outcomes and effects, choose the essential oils you'd like to include in your blend. Refer to Oshu Oils' essential oil guide for information on specific oils and their uses.
- Dilute with carrier oil: Fill the roller bottle about halfway with a carrier oil, such as fractionated coconut oil or sweet almond oil, to safely dilute the essential oils for skin application.
- Add essential oils: Using a pipette or dropper, add your chosen essential oils to the roller bottle. A general rule of thumb is to include about 6-12 drops of essential oil per 10ml of carrier oil, but guidelines may vary based on the specific oils used and desired potency.
- Attach rollerball top: Once your blend is complete, securely attach the rollerball top to the bottle and shake gently to mix.
- Label: Clearly label your roller bottle with the essential oils used and date created to keep track of your custom blends.
