Essential Oils Roller Bottle Recipes and Roller Bottle Labels
One of the easiest ways to get the benefits of your essential oils is by using a roller bottle. There are an endless amount of roller bottle recipes out there. I’m going to share with you my top 6 favorite roller bottle recipes and everything you need to make them; including these adorable labels that I made to share with you.
Why Use a Roller Bottle?
One way to use essential oils is to use them topically, meaning you can apply them to your skin. It is recommended to dilute most oils with a carrier oil. With a roller bottle, you fill up the bottle with essential oils and a carrier oil and can roll it directly on your skin. This ensures that you are using oils safely, while receiving the many benefits they have to offer.
I could share a ton of information about diluting your oils safely and about carrier oils. I know you guys just want to jump into the recipes so I will spare you. Please do your research. Dilute your oils and dilute them even more if you are using them on small children. You wouldn’t give them the same dose of medicine as an adult, so please don’t give them the same dose of essential oils on their skin.

Making the Roller Bottles
You will start out by putting the essential oils in the roller, then fill it the rest of the way up with the carrier oil. Use the syringe that comes with the roller bottle kit to put the carrier oil in the roller bottle. Leave enough empty space in the bottle so that the roller top can be put into place. Make sure you use the tool that comes with the kit to help you secure the roller top in place. I made the mistake of not using this for my first bottle and oil was leaking out of my bottle. Lastly, place your pretty label on the bottle and enjoy!

The Armor roller bottle recipe is designed to help support and protect your immune system. It is great for teachers and others who spend a lot of time with children.
About the Supplies
I chose this specific roller bottle set because they came in a kit with a syringe and the little tool to help put the roller bottle on and take it off. Otherwise, I would have had to buy these separately and they really came in handy when putting together my roller bottles.
I bought the dark amber bottles because sunlight can actually hurt certain oils. I always use dark bottles so that I don’t have to remember which ones are okay in a clear bottle and which ones are not.
The oil proof labels from Crinklee are AMAZING! I read the description on Amazon and didn’t really buy into it, but after using them, I am so impressed with them. The labels that came with the kit were soaked in oil within minutes of being put on the bottle. Spending the extra money on the Crinklee labels was totally worth it.
Once you have the Crinklee labels you can write straight on them or use their template to design your own. I designed my own and am so happy with the way they turned out. They are super cute and I would love to share them with you. I also included these cute recipe cards so that you can remember what goes in the roller bottles. I put the names of my 6 recipes on the first 3 rows of the label sheet and then left the rest with just the flower design so that you can make and name your own recipes.
I love these recipes and seriously can’t get over how cute the labels are. I hope you enjoy them too. What roller bottle recipes do you use and which ones are your favorite? Feel free to contact me with any questions you have at any time.
