These are my must have essential oil blends.  If you use roller bottles, learn about the best essential oil roller blends to use.


If I'm not diffusing my essential oils, then my favorite way to use them is in a roller bottle. Roller bottles make them easy to grab and go and easy to apply.


Making roller bottle blends lets you mix right in the bottle. I can keep my essential oils pure and reduce clutter in my oil storage because I don't have to mix oils in bottles.

Essential oils have to be diluted before you can apply them to your skin  Roller bottles make it easy to dilute them so you don't have to grab a carrier oil or a solid carrier oil stick each time you want to apply oils.


Best Essential Oil Roller Blends


In this post, I want to share my must have essential oil roller blends that I use all the time. I must have about 20 roller bottles here, but these are my absolute favorite that I won't be without.


Basically, if I were stranded on an island, these would be the roller bottle blends that I would take with me. These are the ones that I make over and over again because I am constantly using them.


All of these blends are for 10 mL bottles because that's a fairly common size.  If your bottle is bigger or smaller, you'll have to adjust the number of drops of essential oils.  Most bottles are 5, 10, or 15 mL, so it should be easy to adjust the recipe.


If you have an odd number of drops, it's best to round down.  So if a recipe calls for 7 drops, add 3.
These are the roller bottles that I use.  They are fairly inexpensive and don't leak or spill.

I almost always use fractionated coconut oil to dilute my essential oils because it's colorless, odorless, and inexpensive.


Just a note that I use these essential oil roller blends on my kids, but they are 11, 12, and 16.  My 16 year old is 6 feet tall.  My 12 year old is over 5 feet tall, and my 11 year old is almost 5 feet tall.  They are the size of some adults.


If your kids are little, it's recommended that you use just 2 drops per 10 mL for children.  None of these recipes are meant for children, so use caution and common sense.


How Many Drops of Essential Oils Should I Put in a Roller Bottle?


It's important to properly dilute your essential oil roller blends.  The dilution depends on how you're using the blend.


Generally, you'll use a 2 percent dilution for roller balls.  This means that you would use 4 drops for a 10 ml roller bottle, but you can use up to 6 drops in a 10 ml roller for most uses.


For targeted concerns for short term use, you can use 10 drops of the best essential oil roller blends for a 5 percent dilution.


To help you remember how many drops to use, I have a printable essential oil dilution chart available.  I also have a 3x5 printable essential oil dilution chart to use in an essential oil recipe box.


What Essential Oils Can I Mix With Rollers


You can use any essential oil to make the best essential oil roller blends.  Just make sure that you dilute it properly.  


How Do You Blend Essential Oils for Roller Bottles?


I usually make these best essential oil roller blends right in the roller bottle.  Add your essential oils, fill with a carrier oil, and then place the cap on.  Roll the bottle between your hands to mix.


You can also create essential oil blends in small 5 ml bottles and use those blends to make your essential oil roller blends.  This is especially helpful for essential oil rollerball blends that have more drops than you would normally use in a 10 ml roller.


How Long Does a 10 ml Roller Bottle Last?


That depends on how often you use it.  With daily use, it should last about 6 months.  If you use these best essential oil roller blends less often, they will last longer.


Is Rollerball Perfume Better Than Spray?


I prefer to make rollerball blends because then I can use it just for me without everyone else smelling it.


Where Do You Apply Roller Blend?


You can apply these best essential oil blends to your inner wrists, arms, back of the neck, behind your ears, or your chest.  


What is the Best Carrier Oil for Rollerballs?


I use fractionated coconut oil to make my essential oil roller blends.  It's fairly inexpensive, clear, odorless, and it has a long shelf life.


You can use any carrier oils, but note that some have smells that can alter the scent or a color that can stain clothing.


Cold and Allergy Essential Oil Roller Blend


Two of my kids and I suffer from seasonal allergies. Caleb gets hit hard for a few weeks in the spring and again in the fall. David doesn't get as bad, but he still suffers most of the spring, summer, and into the fall.


I always have a cold and allergy blend roller bottle. Actually, I have two. One for at home, and one for taking with me in my purse or in my car.




I use a premade blend for my cold and allergy blend.  I use either Simply Earth's Breathe Easy or Mountain Rose Herb's Breathe blend.


If you want to make your own blend, try this blend for a 10 mL bottle:





Upset Stomach Essential Oil Roller Blend


If you get an occasional upset stomach, try this blend in a 10 mL bottle:




I also like Simply Earth's Digest blend.

Sore Muscles Essential Oil Roller Blend


Use this directly on sore muscles after working out.




I also use Simply Earth's Relief blend for sore muscles.



Stress Essential Oil Roller Blend


For a premade blend, I like Mountain Rose Herb's Calming blend.  I also use Simply Earth's Tranquility blend.

There are several blends of this. Try one of these:





Or try this simple stress relief blend:




This one is mainly to stop being irritable, but I get irritable when I'm stressed out, so it's kind of a stress relief for me.




Also try this stress relief bath salts recipe.


Sleep Essential Oil Roller Blend


I have a special needs kid, so I'm always exhausted. There are so many blends to help you relax and fall asleep. Here's the one that I use:




Simply Earth's Sleepy blend is my favorite for night time.  It's one of the best essential oil blends for sleep.  I also like Mountain Rose Herb's Sleep blend.

Wake Up Essential Oil Roller Blend


Simply Earth's Energy is hands down my favorite for waking up.  


You can also try this blend:




Focus Essential Oil Roller Blend


I'm normally pretty good at focusing, but my kids are not during homeschool time. They can play Fortnight or Minecraft all day long with no problems focusing, but bring out the algebra book and all bets are off.


I usually diffuse a blend to get all of them to focus, but sometimes I'll just use a roller bottle because it's easier.



Sometimes I use just vetiver.  It's easy to make and works very well in a concentration blend.


I also use this blend too:




If their focus is okay but I need them to really pay attention, then I'll use this blend:


I also use Simply Earth's Focus blend for me.


Headache Essential Oil Roller Blend


David and I are both prone to headaches, so I keep one of these at home and in my desk at the office.




Bruise Buster Essential Oil Roller Blend


Even though my kids are over 10, they still act like their world falls apart when they get a bump or bruise.  Rather than use a whole tin of bandaids, now they use this bruise buster.  


It's also good for itchy or irritated skin, but don't use it on open or broken skin.  If you'll be using this on little kids, you want to use 2 essential oil drops per 10 mL bottle, so keep that in mind.


These are my 9 must have essential oil roller blends.


If you'll be making these, don't forget to get labels.  You think you'll remember what they are for, but you'll forget!


This kit has almost 1,000 stickers, both for the bottle and a sticker for the top.  I love the stickers for the top because I can see at a glance which bottle I want.

You can also get a set of custom labels on Etsy.  This one includes 10 custom labels for you to apply to your bottles.


If you like the little circles for the lids, here is a booklet of little circles for your essential oil roller blends.


Or you can go with labels that cover the whole bottle and write in the name of the oil.
