Essential oil roller blend recipes

I never would have envisioned myself using an essential oil roller ball blend. This all stemmed from an old bottle of lavender oil I had received as a gift and never touched. I had just gotten into making DIY products at home and thought I would try my hand at making a massage oil – Purely strategic because I wanted a massage! (And the plan totally worked by the way!)

I mixed a few drops of lavender oil with a few tablespoons of fractionated coconut oil and left the little bottle on my bedside table. I found myself reaching for it before bedtime – I would smooth it on my wrists, behind my ears and down the back of my neck. The scent comforted me and helped me relax… Which is when I knew I needed more. If you want to know a little bit more about oils, you can read my Beginners Guide to Essential Oils here. I always thought I would need to go mad with buying several scents but it’s really not the case. Here are a few of my favourite roller oil blend recipes. 

You will need:

Roller balls – I buy mine here, you can also purchase your roller bottle labels here too!
Essential oils of your choice – I buy mine here.*
Carrier oil – I use fractionated coconut oil (but you can use jojoba or almond oil) – I buy it here.


Add the following essential oils to your roller ball, top with carrier oil and shake.

Sleep Blend

4 drops lavender oil
4 drops lemongrass oil
I apply this to the back of my neck, wrists and behind my ears at bedtime. It assists in relaxing me and helping me fall to sleep.

Energy Blend 

4 drops lemon oil
4 drops peppermint oil
I love to apply this first thing in the morning on the back of my neck or at around 3pm when I am doing preschool pick up. It refreshes me and assists with my focus and concentration. 

Wellness Blend

4 drops lavender oil
2 drops peppermint oil
2 drops eucalyptus oil
I love to apply this on my neck, collarbone, chest and back of my neck when I’m feeling like I need an immunity boost.
