Roller-balls are by far  my favorite method of applying oils.  Whether I’m treating a headache and need to apply an oil to my the temples of my forehead, or trying to treat a fresh scrape that one of my boys has just earned, the roller ball allows a nice, easy, and smooth application.  What I really like to do is make my own roller-ball blends!

So I have compiled a list to make your life as easy as mine!

A few things you need to know first:

What is a carrier oil?

  • This is an oil that you mix your essential oil with to dilute it and also to carry it out farther. You can use Young Livings v-6 oil, coconut oil, olive oil or any kind of oil you please!

How To  Assemble The Roller-ball?

  • Remove the clear plastic top that comes with your Young Living Essential Oil bottle.  Then simply set the rollerball in the bottle’s opening.  While the rollerball is not quite in place, go ahead and put the bottle’s cap on and twist until the fitment is securely in place.

How To Remove The Roller-ball?

  • The removal of the roller-ball is quite easy.  You loosely set the bottle’s cap on the end of the rollerball, Then cock the neck of the lid to the side. It will pop right out.

Where do I buy Young Living Essential Oils?

  • Question??

    These all sound so great but I was just wondering where you roll them? Wrists? Feet? Temples?

    • It depends on what you need it for! For example, if I have a neck ache, I role it on my neck. If Im having anxiety, I roll it on my wrist and behind my ears. There are also yor vita flex points under your feet and believe it or not, they work great!

  • According to my research, the amount of drops you put in your roller bottles compared to the amount of carrier oil is substantially higher dilution than is recommended. So 85 drops of E.O. in 10 ml bottle is 42% dilution.

    • The dilution is really up to you! not diluting at all wont hurt you! Thats the great thing about put essential oils!

  • Are your roller-balls 5 or 10mL?

  • What carrier oil is best to use for these?
