Roller balls are a great way for essential oils to be absorbed into the skin! Some blends you can place directly onto the skin but the benefit of a roller ball is that it is mixed with a carrier oil. The carrier oil mixes with the essential oil so that it isn’t as concentrated being applied topically to the skin. My favorite carrier oil is hemp seed oil. It is light and the benefits of hemp are amazing. If you have made any of my recipes you would definitely know hemp is a major part of my diet!
Below are some of my favorite recipes that I use regularly. The type of essential oil I use is from Revive essential oils. I have another blog post about their company and why I chose them. You can read it here.
Headache Killer Recipe:
Since I have endometriosis, I am familiar with all kinds of aches and pains. But one that super bothers me are headaches. I used to pop NSAID’s every time I had a headache (and sometimes still do in case it’s a super bad one!) but this roller ball recipe has greatly helped! Apply to the temples of your forehead and wrists and back of neck to relieve mild headaches.
12 drops lavender
10 drops peppermint
6 drops frankincense
fill rest of tube with carrier oil
roll away to kill that killer headache!
Sound Asleep Recipe:
This recipe puts me to sleeeeeeep! I usually roll this onto my wrists when I get into bed at night and I’m usually asleep within 15 minutes. Cozy up with a good book, roll this on, and you’ll sleep like a baby!
15 drops sleep
20 drops stress easy
fill rest of rube with carrier oil
roll away for a good night’s sleep!
Curb your Cravings Recipe:
Sugar cravings come and go for me, but when I have them, I HAVE them. I decided to try to curb my cravings with a roller ball. Grapefruit is very good at helping suppress cravings and clary sage is wonderful at balancing hormones. Sometimes when we crave certain foods it can be an imbalance somewhere! Try this recipe below and roll onto wrists and bottom of your feet (if you’re at home) to curb your cravings whatever they may be!
15 drops Grapefruit
5 drops Peppermint
5 drops Lemon
10 drops Clary Sage
