Roller Bottle Recipes with Free Printable Labels
Essential Oil Roller Bottles
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.
** Make sure you watch the video at the end. I show you exactly how to put these together!

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.

The Fun Part
Okay, I am finally going to tell you how to make your roller bottles. First of all, here is a list of all the supplies you will need.
Fractionated Coconut Oil – or carrier oil of your choice
6 Roller Bottles – this kit has everything you need
Oil Proof Labels – these 2 in by 1 in labels if you want to use my free printable
My Free Roller Bottle Label Design – print on the labels mentioned above
Roller Bottle storage – optional
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!
Recipe for Each Bottle
|Sweet Dreams||5 drops each of: lavender, cedarwood, and tangerine|
|Owie||5 drops each of: lavender, teatree, and frankincense|
|Cheers||5 drops each of: orange, lemon, and grapefruit|
|Relief||5 drops peppermint and 3 drops each of: eucalyptus, lavender, and frankincense|
|Bless You||5 drops each of: lavender, lemon and peppermint|
|Armor||3 drops each of: lemon, clove, eucalyptus, rosemary, and cinnamon|
You can use the roller bottle to roll the oil on the bottoms of your feet, on your chest, back of your neck, or behind your ears.
If you want to use these on children please use half of the amount of essential oils. Here is what each roller bottle recipe is for.
Sweet Dreams is a mix that will help you get to sleep at night and promotes a deeper sleep.
Cheers is a mood enhancer. If you need some motivation, use this roller bottle recipe to bring some sunshine into your day.
Owie is meant to help with minor scrapes and cuts, including bug bites. Apply to the area in need.
My Relief recipe is made specifically for stress and headache relief.
The Bless You roller bottle recipe can help you ward off any oncoming allergies.
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.
Don’t forget that my printable labels go with these specific Crinklee Oil Proof labels.
Then, print the recipe cards on a separate sheet of paper or cardstock.
You can also print my free labels on a piece of paper and tape them to your roller bottles. 😉
I love these recipes and seriously can’t get over how cute the labels are. I hope you enjoy them too.

cool recipes! I use them on myself, but not on my son

Thanks! Yes, they are mostly for me, but I do use a very diluted mix for my daughter on occasion.

A good friend of mine has been studying aromatherapy and made up some of these for me and my daughter (without your cute labels, though!). Love them. She made one to help lift the spirits of my teenage daughter, and another to help me with headaches.

That’s awesome. I hope they are making a positive impact on your family.
