Roller Ball Recipes anyone??? They are so simple to make and amazingly easy to use. My grand kids love to use Essential Oil roller balls!
What do you need to start with? A few Essential Oils- our doTERRA Home Essentials Kit is a great starter set of the 10 oils you will reach for time and time again. It also contains a diffuser which you will love! Be sure to purchase a bottle of our high quality Fractionated Coconut Oil (FCO) while you are at it. This will not turn rancid and is shelf stable at all temperatures. I can help you with your order.
You will need Glass Roller bottles. These recipes are for 10 ml roller bottles. If you have 3 or 5 ml bottles adjust the amount of oils. Some roller bottles come with the balls of different types. I love the gem stone ones, glass or stainless steel. Plastics do break down with use of Citrus oils. You will be able to get these from doTERRA soon! Yay!! Right now, I get my hard supplies at Aroma Tools, The Root and Petal , Oil Life and other spa resource outlets.
RECIPES for Seasonal Discomfort.
Seasonal Blend — apply to temples, under the nose, and chest up to 3-5 times daily during high season. This recipe uses 1-2 drops of Lavender Oil for 3 month-24 month olds. Fill the rest of the bottle with Fractionated Coconut Oil (FCO)
2-6 years old use 1-2 drops of Lavender Oil and a drop of Lemon Oil, Fill with FCO.
6-12 years of age use 3-4 drops of Lavender Oil, 2-3 drops of Lemon Oil and 1 drop of Peppermint Oil then fill with FCO.
- For adults you can use a stronger blend of 5-6 drops of Lavender and Lemon with 4-5 drops of Peppermint. Adjust the oils accordingly of course. I have been very conservative in these drops of Oils.
Ultimate Defense!!! — Apply around the neck glands, over the chest or spine at morning and evening after bath during high season.
3-24 month babies – 1 or 2 Drops of Frankincense and fill with FCO.
2 to 6 year olds – 1 or 2 drops Frankincense, 1-2 drops of Melaleuca, fill with FCO.
6-12 yr olds get 2 drops each of Frankincense and Melaleuca, 1 of Oregano and 2 of Lemon. Fill with FCO.
Adults use- 2-3 of Frankincense, 2-3 of Melaleuca, 2 Oregano, and 4 Lemon, again, fill the bottle with FCO.
I use only the doTERRA Brand of Essential Oils. If you decide to use a different brand you probably won’t get the same results. Give me a call. I will get you the awesome doTERRA oils with which you will have the best success.
Bathe for protection as well! You know that those little people and big people will be out of doors in the coming nice weather. It is a great idea to create a bath in which those particles of dust and pollen will slough off. I love using Epsom Salts in the bath. 1 cup Epsom salt in a jar and add 4-5 drops of desired oil( not citrus!). You have a delightful and healthy bath salt to use under the running water. My favorite is Lavender for relaxation and stress release. Use it liberally and ENJOY!
