5 Essential Oil Blends I Can’t Live Without + How To Make Them

Once you realize what a difference essential oils can make in your daily life, it can be hard to leave the house without a bag full of all your favourites! These roller bottle blends make it easy to use your oils throughout the day – wether you are at work, travelling, or just relaxing at home. 

Why I can’t live without these oils…

Modern medicine provides many “quick fixes to the health struggles that many of us deal with on a daily basis. I’m talking about advil, tylenol, tums, sleeping pills, nytol, xanax, bengay, nexium, prozac …. the list goes on.

These “quick fixes” can have detrimental side effects when taken over a long period of time. When we don’t address the root cause of our health problems, it can end up feeling like we are just managing sickness every day!

What if there was another way? What if we focused on promoting wellness by supporting all systems in the body?

Essential oils have the power to support and balance our endocrine, circulatory, respiratory, digestive, nervous, and reproductive systems. When we use essential oils consistently, we can work on promoting wellness rather than just managing sickness – all while avoiding the nasty side effects of synthetic drugs.

In this post you will find recipes for 5 of my favourite roller bottle blends to help with:

Blending Essential Oils

The blends in this post are based on a 10 ml roller bottle. The best way to blend oils is to fill the roller bottle 1/2 way with fractionated coconut oil (or your choice of carrier oil – sweet almond oil is also nice). Then add the essential oils. After the essential oils are added, fill the remaining space with your carrier oil, and shake to blend. Simple as that!


1. Headache Melt

This is a blend I NEVER leave behind. Young Living lavender and marjoram are both classified as natural health products in Canada to help relieve headaches. Peppermint is very cooling on the skin, and copaiba helps magnify the effects of the other oils in this blend. Helichrysum can act as a nervine and calmative which enhances relaxation.

Headache Melt:
+ 15 drops peppermint
+ 15 drops lavender
+ 10 drops marjoram
+ 2 drops copaiba
+ 2 drops helichrysum

2. Breathe Blend

This is great year round – for coughs and colds in the winter, and seasonal congestion in spring and fall. You will never find me without my breathe roll-on! This blend converted me into an essential oil-lover last year, and I can’t imagine what I would do without it! Today I am home from work with a cold, and I have been rolling this on my chest, neck, and wrists all day long! It works wonders.

Breathe Blend:
 + 15 drops eucalyptus
+ 10 drops peppermint
+ 5 drops myrtle
+ 3 drops lemon
+ 5 drops laurus nobilis

















3. Liquid Sleep

This blend is truly well named. Vetiver adds deep, woodsy notes to this calming and grounding blend. Lavender and cedarwood are both very well known for their calming properties – both act as a nervine and calmative on there nervous system. Frankincense is commonly used in meditation and yoga practices, and is very soothing + grounding. Vetiver is a good oil to help balance the root chakra. Roll this blend on your chest, wrists, neck and feet before bed for a good night’s sleep!

Wear it on your wrists and over your heart on days when you need a little extra emotional support.

Purchase Quality Essential Oils

Did you know that the quality of essential oils is actually something that is quite important? The vast majority of essential oils on the market are extracted using high heat, high pressure, and chemical solvents. When you purchase a cheap essential oil, you cannot expect to get therapeutic results. These oils are often diluted (with a carrier oil or alcohol) and will contain toxic synthetic chemicals which have been used in their extraction process.

Young Living essential oils are 100% pure, from seed to seal. These are the highest quality of essential oils on the market, and they are truly therapeutic grade. You can learn more about Young Living’s seed to seal process here. To purchase these beautiful 100% pure therapeutic grade essential oils, enroll as a wholesale member with Young Living using this link: http://bit.ly/EnrollWithJasmine

    1. Hi Corie! Good question… You can apply these rollers to your wrists, chest, neck, even the bottoms of your feet. Essential oils absorb well through the bottom of your feet and can enter the bloodstream even faster! 🙂

    1. I use the Young Living Eucalyptus Globulus. A couple drops of Eucalyptus Blue wouldn’t hurt either if you have it, I know if is a key ingredient in the YL Breathe Again roll-on!

  1. I love that even though you’re promoting Young Living, you are giving recipes for blends that can be made from any brand, since you aren’t using premixed blends in your blends. Thank you!

      1. Hi Jasmine. I was wondering with the Stress away, how many drops do you do for 10 ml bottles. Does 10 sound efficient?

      2. Hi Billi! 10 sounds good – really it is all up to you. There is no correct or incorrect dosage – I add as many as I like, to make it as strong as I want. For myself I might do somewhere closer to 15, but it is all personal preference!

  2. Hello Jasmine,
    I am about to make your blend of liquid sleep and I was wondering what the dilution ratio would be for this blend. Thanks and I hope to hear from you soon!

    1. HI Chelsea! I make all of these blends in a 10 ml roller bottle.
      Liquid Sleep:
      2 drops vetiver
      15 drops lavender
      10 drops cedarwood
      5 drops frankincense
      Fill to top with fractionated coconut oil or your choice of carrier oil!

  3. Did you change your Liquid Sleep blend? The vetiver & cedarwood drops have changed since I first made this blend.

    1. Hey Lori! You know what – I did. I made that recipe quite a while ago, and I find that you really only need a little bit of vetiver. I find it is more economical this way as well. If you like the old recipe, by all means make it that way. It is always good to get creative with your blends, don’t be afraid to experiment!! 🙂

  4. Hello! I loved this post, thanks so much! My question is, where did you get the cute white storage container with the little drawers? I would love something like that for my oil storage!

    1. Hi Brenda! Yes these essential oils are safe for kids – you may want to dilute them though, depending on their age. For young babies, you only need about 1-2 drops of essential oil in a 10 ml roller bottle. For older kids, 5-10 is great!

    1. Hi Jennifer. I get them from an etsy shop called Simply Essentials Co, she makes great labels. Or if you just need rollers you can purchase them on amazon!
