Roller Bottle Blend Recipes with Free Printable Labels

I am very excited to share this post with you!

It’s a mash up of essential oil roller bottle recipes and free printable roller bottle labels.  Recipes and labels all in one!! 

Never again will I have to wonder what’s in the mystery roller bottle in my bathroom drawer.

Never again will I have to try to track down the recipes of my favorite essential oil blends when I want to remake the roller bottle but I’ve forgotten exactly which oils are in that blend and how many drops of each I’m supposed to put in.

This makes it really easy (and FUN) to make roller bottles. 

Wouldn’t this be great for a make & take class!

  1. pick your roller bottles
    click here to see the roller bottles I use most often.  they’re inexpensive (usually under $10 including shipping for 24 bottles) and they don’t leak!  But if you’d prefer other styles or colors of roller bottles, check out this post which lists lots more of my favorite roller bottles in all shapes, sizes, colors, and finishes.
  2. pick the blends you want to make– make all 20 blends or just one.  Choose from Immune Booster, Tummy Tamer, Muscle Soother, Owie Stick, Anti-Itch Stick, Seasonal Support, Tension Tamer, Deep Breath, Anti-Stress, Chill Out, Grounding Blend, Good Night Sleep Tight, Energized, Lets Focus, Joyful, Nourish, Clear Skin, Calm Skin, Motivation, and Gratitude.
  3. print the labels  click here for printable roller bottle recipe labels
  4. cut the labels out  this vinyl paper work great for essential oil diy projects like this. They are even waterproof (and oil proof). And you can print them in an ink jet printer.  (note: another option is to print the labels on plain printer paper, cut the labels out, lay them face down on a piece of clear packing tape, trim around the label- making sure to leave at least 1/8 of an inch of tape around the label, and then stick the label onto the bottle.  It’s easier than it sounds, and it’s practically free.)
  5. put the labels on the roller bottles
  6. store your bottles in a great organizer like this. it’s less than $5 including shipping!
  7. take your roller bottles with you in a great essential oil bag like this- I have a couple of these bags.  They are fantastic!  Not only are they beautiful, they’re extremely well made, and fit standard 5ml and 15ml essential oil bottles as well as roller bottles.

 

How to fill the roller bottles?

  • start with a 10 ml glass roller bottle  like this
  • add the drops of essential oil (see my favorite roller bottle blend recipes below)
  • fill rest of 10 ml roller bottles with a carrier oil.  It’s helpful to use a little funnel like these when filling the roller bottles with carrier oils.  Be sure to leave a little space at the top so that’s there’s room to put the roller ball back on.  Here are some of my favorite carrier oils for these roller bottle blends:
    • fractionated coconut oilthis is my favorite one  it’s odorless, colorless, organic, and gmo-free.
    • jojoba oilthis is my favorite one  it’s organic, GMO-free, cold-processed and unrefined.  Jojoba oil  is actually not an oil, but a liquid wax.    It closely resembles the sebum in human skin.  It’s extremely rich in Vitamin E, promotes a healthy glowing complexion.  It’s great for all skin types (normal, dry, oily, sensitive, and mature).  This works well in all roller bottle blends, but I especially think it’s great in the nourish and calm skin blends.
    • rosehip seed oilthis is my favorite one  it’s organic, unrefined, and 100% pure. Rosehip seed oil is one of the best oils for dry and mature skin.  It’s very moisturizing, high in Vitamin C, mild astringent, extremely high in essential fatty acids, and fast absorbing.  This works well in all roller bottle blends, but I especially think it’s great in the nourish and calm skin blends.
    • sweet almond oilthis is my favorite one  It’s organic, food-grade oil.  Sweet almond oil is great for all skin types, including sensitive skin and acne-prone skin.  It’s one of the gentlest oils, extremely nourishing, rich in Vitamin D, and it’s an excellent emollient known for its ability to soften and recondition the skin.
  • snap on the roller ball
  • shake the bottle to mix the carrier oil and essential oils

 

Where to Apply the oils?

  • Immune Booster– We roll this on the bottom of our feet, let to soak in, and then cover with socks.
  • Tummy Tamer– We roll this on our stomachs and gently rub it in.
  • Muscle Soother– We roll this directly on the sore muscles and rub in.
  • Owie Stick–  To try to keep the roller ball clean, we will either roll the owie stick blend onto our fingers and then apply it to the skin with the owie, or if we roll the owie stick directly onto the skin, we then clean the roller ball after use.
  • Anti-itch Stick– To try to keep the roller ball clean, we will either roll the anti-itch stick blend onto our fingers and then apply it to the itchy skin, or if we roll the anti-itch stick directly onto the skin, we then clean the roller ball after use.
  • Seasonal Stick– We typically roll this onto the pulse points behind our ears and in our wrists, then we rub wrists together and inhale.
  • Tension Tamer– We roll this onto the back of the head where the head joins the neck and also roll it onto the temples, being careful to not roll on too much and to keep the oil away from the eyes.  (note: if oil does get in the eyes, do not use water to try to get the oil out; water with drive the oil further in.  Instead dab the eye with an oil or splash the eyes with whole milk to dilute the oil.)
  • Deep Breath– We typically roll this onto the upper chest and then wrist pulse points (rub wrists together and inhale).  We also sometimes roll this blend under the big toe, a spot that support clears breathing.
  • Anti Stress–  We apply to pulse points behind ears and on wrists.  After applying to wrists, we rub wrists together and deeply inhale aroma, making an effort to breath deeply and intentionally for several seconds.
  • Chill Out– We apply to pulse points behind ears and on wrists.  After applying to wrists, we rub wrists together and deeply inhale aroma, making an effort to breath deeply and intentionally for several seconds.
  • Grounding Blend– We apply to pulse points behind ears and on wrists.  After applying to wrists, we rub wrists together and deeply inhale aroma, making an effort to breath deeply and intentionally for several seconds.
  • Goof Night Sleep Tight– We either apply to the bottoms of feet, let soak in, and cover with socks, or we apply to wrists and chest (this is what I do when I travel without a diffuser as I love the combined scents of lavender and cedarwood)
  • Energized– We apply to pulse points behind ears and on wrists.  After applying to wrists, we rub wrists together and deeply inhale aroma, making an effort to breath deeply and intentionally for several seconds.
  • Let’s Focus– We apply to pulse points behind ears and on wrists.  After applying to wrists, we rub wrists together and deeply inhale aroma, making an effort to breath deeply and intentionally for several seconds.
  • Joyful– We apply to pulse points behind ears and on wrists.  After applying to wrists, we rub wrists together and deeply inhale aroma, making an effort to breath deeply and intentionally for several seconds.
  • Nourish– We roll a small strip onto forehead and both cheeks and then gently rub in using upward strokes.
  • Clear Skin– We roll a small strip onto forehead and both cheeks and then gently rub in using upward strokes.
  • Calm Skin– We roll a small strip onto forehead and both cheeks and then gently rub in using upward strokes.
  • Motivation– We apply to pulse points behind ears and on wrists.  After applying to wrists, we rub wrists together and deeply inhale aroma, making an effort to breath deeply and intentionally for several seconds.
  • Gratitude– We apply to pulse points behind ears and on wrists.  After applying to wrists, we rub wrists together and deeply inhale aroma, making an effort to breath deeply and intentionally for several seconds.

    Are your recipes for 10 ml roller bottles? I am getting ready to do my first vendor show and I love your Recipes.

    Hi Sarah! Love all of the wonderful things you share! Do you print labels for roller bottle on regular paper or have you found a way to print on moisture proof labels? If so, where do you buy the paper?
    Thanks so much.

    • Sarah Lewis November 12, 2015 at 5:47 pm - Reply

      Hi, Valerie.
      I’m so glad you’re enjoying my posts. While I’ve been using essential oils for a few years now, I’ve just recently started blogging, so I’m still getting the hang of it. It’s very fun though!

      In terms of printing the labels for the roller bottles, I’ve successfully used both regular paper and special waterproof vinyl paper. Both work great.

      Here’s what I do when I use regular printer/copier paper: I print a sheet of the labels on the plain paper, then I cut each label out, then I tear off a piece of clear packing tape (the kind you use to seal up boxes)- tear off a piece that is at least an inch or so longer than the length of the label, then lay the paper label ink down in the middle of the tape, then trim the tape around the label- leaving at least 1/8 of an inch all the way around so the tape will adhere to the bottle and seal the label, then apply the taped label to the roller bottle squeezing our any air bubbles as you go. voila, you now have a waterproof and oil proof label.

      If you’re going to make a lot of roller bottles or you have other diy projects that you’d like to have nice-looking waterproof labels for, then I recommend this special paper: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0054SQCPU?ie=UTF8&linkCode=as2&camp=1634&creative=6738&tag=ondoco00-20&creativeASIN=B0054SQCPU It is waterproof vinyl adhesive paper (ie a full sheet of label paper) that you can print using an inkjet printer. This stuff is amazing! But you need to follow the package directions. Don’t skip a skip.

      Hope that help. Let me know if you have more questions. I’m here to help.

    These are great. How do you use them or where do you roll them? Flex points? How often?

    • Sarah Lewis November 14, 2015 at 10:45 am - Reply

      Hi, Cindy. Thank you so much for the question about how do you use these roller blends and where do you apply them. I’m sure a lot of others have the same question. I’ve add a section to the post about how and where my family applies these roller blends. Please let me know if anything isn’t clear or if you have other questions. Thanks so much for asking and helping all of us! – Sarah

  4. Alan November 14, 2015 at 8:59 pm - Reply

    Do you add these drops to a 10 ml bottles and then fill with carrier? Or do you fill with these ratios of oils neet?

    • Sarah Lewis November 15, 2015 at 10:32 am - Reply

      Hi, Alan.

      Thanks for asking. It’s a great question, and I’m sure lots of other people have the same question. Essential oils are very powerful, so I try to dilute essential oils whenever I can. I figure I can always apply more essential oils if I need to. These recipes are meant to be used in a 10 ml roller bottle where you add the drops of the essential oils to the roller bottle and then fill the rest of the roller bottle with a carrier oil like fractionated coconut oil or sweet almond oil. These recipes use about 10 drops of essential oils per 10 ml (1/3 oz) of carrier oil; that’s known as a 5% dilution and is generally considered a safe dilution for healthy adults. If you’re using any of these blends with children, then I would dilute them even more. Generally, a 1-2% dilution is recommended for children; that’s 2-4 drops of essential oil per 10 ml of carrier oil.

      Hope that helps. I really appreciate you asking.

    Do you mix with a carrier oil ? How much and which one ?

    • Sarah Lewis November 15, 2015 at 10:40 am - Reply

      Great question! Thanks to you and another reading asking, I realized I had left an important part from my post. I’ve added in a section now (thanks to you) about how to fill the roller bottles.

      I do try to dilute essential oils whenever I can, as I believe essential oils are very powerful, and less is more. These recipes are intended to be used in a 10 ml roller bottle. I add the drops of essential oil to the 10 ml roller bottle, then I fill the rest of the 10 ml bottle with a carrier oil.

      My favorite carrier oils for roller bottles are fractionated coconut oil (it’s colorless and odorless, so this is the carrier oil I use most often in roller bottles), sweet almond oil (fantastic for skin and absorbs quickly, so this is another favorite all-around roller bottle carrier oil), and then I have two favorite carrier oils for skincare blends- rosehip seed oil and jojoba. I’ve linked to me favorite brands of each of these carrier oils in the post in case you’d like to see which ones I buy.

      Hope this helps. Thanks again for the great questions!

    What brand of essential oil are you referring to? Not all are created equal and the quantity need of each oil maybe vary per brand. Great post. Thank you for sharing.

    • Sarah Lewis December 3, 2015 at 1:22 pm - Reply

      Hi, Celina. I mostly use doTERRA oils, but I like learning from and sharing with people who use essential oils (regardless of brand). I think there’s a lot we can learn from each other. And I think that regardless of brand, we can support each other in our efforts to live a more natural, healthier life. That said, I strongly believe that using a good quality therapeutic grade, 100% pure essential oil is very important. – Sarah

    Your rollerball recipes look amazing! I have been searching and searching for recipes and all the other ones I have come across have contained WAY too many essential oil drops in them, like 60 drops in a 10ml rollerball!! Yours look perfect and I can’t wait to get my rollerballs and use your recipes. Thank you so much!!

    Which company do you order your labels from and what size are they? Would love to print these and use your recipes. Thanks!

    • Sarah Lewis March 14, 2016 at 5:14 pm - Reply

      Hi, Michelle.
      I actually don’t buy pre-cut labels for my roller bottle labels. I print on full sheets of vinyl labels and then cut them out myself. This is the kind of vinyl paper I use: http://amzn.to/1M4ZB4U It’s waterproof (and oil resistant) and you can print them on an ink jet printer. Love that!
      I also print roller bottle labels on plain white printer paper, cut them out, and adhere the plain paper labels to the roller bottles using packing tape. It sounds like it wouldn’t look nice, but they actually end up looking very professional. It’s a cheap and easy solution, using supplies (paper and packing tape) that you probably already have around the house.

    I noticed that some of your oil blends are applied to the bottoms of the feet or under the big toe. Why is that? I thought your feet would be a bad place to apply because of the thickness of the skin. Thanks!

    • Sarah Lewis May 8, 2016 at 3:06 pm - Reply

      Hi, Debbie.
      There’s some debate on whether applying essential oils to the bottom of feet is the best or worst place to apply oils. Some say it’s the best because of the large pores and the feet’s link to reflexology. Others say it’s the worst place because of the thickness of the skin. My personal approach is a mix- I apply essential oils to the bottoms of feet in two situations (1) when I or person using the EOs doesn’t like the smell of the oils, then I only apply the EOs to the bottom of the feet and usually cover it with socks to block the smell as much as possible and (2) when reflexology might help get the result I’m wanting- this is the case of applying the sleeping EOs under my big toe. With this I usually apply both under big toe (reflexology) and also on my chest or some other place where I can smell it because I love the smell of these EOs and also want the aromatic benefits.
      Hope that helps explain my choices.
      Thanks for the note!

    At first, I tried signed up then got nothing. I thought it was just a scam. Boy, was I wrong!
    I just wanted to say that I was able to download the free printable! Do we have to put in our e-mail address every time we want to print it? I would change to find out how we can do it one time so I would not get tons of signs ups.

    On the Positive side…

    I liked the simplicity of your labels. I didn’t think it would work during m Make and Take Workshop on June 8th, 2016. (I live in Jacksonville, FL) EVERYONE LOVED THEM! I even gave them your website and a sample sheet for them to try. And I educated the participants how to sign up for your newsletters!

    Just know you may have a few more joining your group soon! So THANK YOU for putting the time and effort to create these wonderful labels for us.

      Hi, Tara.
      Thanks so much for sharing the labels and telling others about One Essential Community! The more the merrier.
      I have an idea so that you won’t have to keep putting your email in when you want to print another set of roller bottle labels. Once you put your email in, a pdf of the labels will pop up. To, print you’d click on the little image of the printer. But you can also save the pdf file of the labels to your computer (or tablet or phone). Instead of clicking the image of the printer, click the image of the floppy disk just to the left of the image of the printer. This will save the file and then you can print from the saved file whenever you want (without having to enter your email again).
      And the goods news if that if you don’t save to save and have to enter your email again, as long as you enter the same email, you won’t get additional emails from me. The email program I use cancels out any duplicate email addresses it gets, so that you’re only in my list once. thank goodness for that.
      thanks again for the note and for sharing with others. I really appreciate it!

    Hi there! Love these printables! Do you offer an editable version? Or a way that I could print a full page of just one blend? I want to make a bunch of two of your blends but hate to waste all the vinyl paper 🙂

    Can I add a fragrance oil to these recipes?

    • Sarah Lewis September 3, 2016 at 9:58 am - Reply

      Hi, Dani. I’ve never done this, but suppose you could add a natural fragrance oil to a roller bottle blend (just be sure that it’s 100% natural plant material so it doesn’t interact negatively with the essential oils). It could be good for making perfume and body spray. I love the smell of vanilla and some non-citrus fruits that aren’t available in essential oils (like mango and pumpkin). Would be fun to use those with essential oils in a perfume or body spray. Please let me know if you try it and how it works. – Sarah

    But I was wondering which frankincense you used, along with a few other oils.
    Is it possible to get the latin name for each oil used? Thanks

      Hi Glenda, I used Boswellia carterii.

    Hi! Thank you so much for these simple recipes. I’m really new to essential oils and have only been using them in a diffuser. Believe me, simple is a good thing. I love the idea of making rollerballs so having the print out w the recipe on it is awesome! I just bought a Guava Seed carrier oil recently for another diy but do you think that could or would work with these blends as the carrier oil? Thanks again!

    • Sarah Lewis April 5, 2017 at 10:39 am - Reply

      While you could use it as your carrier oil for all these blends, I would only to choose to use it myself for the skincare blends. I would use fractionated coconut oil for most of the other blends as fco (fractionated coconut oil) is cheaper, colorless (less likely to stain clothes), odorless, and has a longer shelf life. But if guava seed oil is all you have, it will definitely work as a carrier oil.
