How to Use Essential Roller Balls for Aromatherapy

An essential oil roller ball or roller is a handy aromatherapy tool that is highly convenient on the go. Rollers are basically made using roller bottles and essential oils. With a roll-on, you apply essential oils topically so that your skin can absorb the oil. To this effect, the oil has to be safely diluted and formulated to give you a desired therapeutic effect. Making rollers at home is fun and easy – this article guides you.

Make Your Own Essential Oil Roller Ball

You need three things to get started; essential oils, carrier oil and a roll-on bottle.

Choose a single oil or a blend of your choice. Just make sure to use pure oils to have the optimum health effect. If you are new to essential oils, take time to research on oils that will suit your desired purpose. Oils for aromatherapy can help reduce stress, relieve aches, treat insomnia, enhance skin and so on. Therefore, use a blend that is tailored to your needs.

A carrier oil helps dilute potent essential oils. The best carrier may depend on what you want. Fractionated coconut oil is however the most popular carrier for rollers. Apart from being thin in consistency, it has a long shelf life. Other carriers to consider are jojoba and sweet almond oil.

A roll-on glass bottle with a stainless steel roller ball topper is ideal. Make sure to clean your bottle properly to reduce impurities. A 10 ml bottle is good because you can easily carry it in your bag.
