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.
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.
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!
4. Dream Big
Hints of citrus give this beautiful floral blend an uplifting and calming aroma. SARA is a blend of Geranium, Ylang Ylang, Rose, Blue Tansy, and other oils that is designed as a soothing scent to be used during difficult or emotional times. Joy is an uplifting blend of pure essential oils that creates magnetic energy and brings happiness to the heart. Grapefruit can act as a nervine and calmative which enhances relaxation. Bergamot also support emotional wellness, helping to release emotional pain and increase self-love. Overall, this blend brings balance, acceptance, appreciation + self love to the heart! Wear it on your wrists and over your heart on days when you need a little extra emotional support.
5. Skin Soothe
Witch hazel has always been a staple in our home. This skin soothe blend takes witch hazel, and makes it even more soothing to the skin with a blend of the best essential oils for healing any skin discomforts! Works great as a facial toner.

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.
