The Benefits of Using Essential Oil Rollerballs

Mockingbird Apothecary Essential Oil Rollerball blends

Essential Oil Rollerball natural remedies and recipes at The Mockingbird ApothecaryI'm going to be honest with you. I'm a sucker for all things aromatherapy. I always have a diffuser running in my house, and sometimes even when I travel. But the one thing that has changed my life, is carrying an essential oil with me everywhere I go - It's like my security blanket, but way more therapeutic. I always have it with me in my purse, and I've even been known to keep one in my car (for those days when traffic is just too much).

The great thing about rollerballs is that they're so versatile. You can use them as a way to treat occasional issues, or you can use them as part of your daily routine to help maintain your health and well-being. And the best part? They're perfect for on-the-go use. So whether you're traveling for work or pleasure, you can always have the therapeutic benefits of essential oils with you.

The benefits of carrying an essential oil with you everywhere you go

It is good to carry an oil with you. The oils can help your stress. They make you feel better and can make you feel like a person again. You don't have to worry about them spilling everywhere because they are small and fit in anything!

Some people might think that it's weird to have an essential oil rollerball with them at all times, but I think it's genius. Here's why:

1. They're perfect for on-the-go use:

Whether you're stuck in traffic or dealing with a stressful work situation, having an essential oil rollerball with you can help to keep you calm and centered. Simply roll it onto your wrists or temples and breathe in deeply to enjoy the benefits.

2. They make a great addition to any aromatherapy collection:

If you're already into essential oils, then you know that there are a million different ways to use them. But if you're just getting started, a rollerball is a great way to test out a variety of different oils and blends.

3. They're easy to customize:

Not everyone enjoys the same scents, so it's important to have options when it comes to essential oils. With a rollerball, you can easily fill it with your favorite oil or blend, and change it up as often as you like.

4. They're affordable:

Essential oils can be pretty pricey, but rollerballs are a great way to get the benefits without breaking the bank. Simply purchase a empty rollerball bottle and fill it with your favorite oil.

5. They're perfect for gifting:

If you know someone who could benefit from the power of essential oils, a rollerball makes a great gift. Simply add a label with the recipient's name and your favorite oil blend, and voila! The perfect present.

What you need to know to blend carrier oils to essential oils

When it comes to blending carrier oils to make rollerballs, there are a few things you need to keep in mind.

  1. First and foremost, you'll want to make sure that the oils you choose are compatible with each other. Incompatible oils can actually cause skin irritation, so it's important to do your research first.
  2. Secondly, you'll want to make sure that the essential oils you choose are therapeutic for the specific issue you're trying to address. For example, if you're dealing with anxiety, you might want to use a blend that includes lavender oil, which is known for its calming effects.
  3. Finally, you'll need to make sure that the rollerball itself is clean and free of any debris. This is important because you don't want to risk contaminating the oil or causing skin irritation.

Now that we've covered the basics, let's get into how to make your own essential oil rollerballs.

What You'll Need:

  • Carrier oil (I like to use fractionated coconut oil, jojoba oil or hemp seed oil)
  • Essential oils based on recipe
  • Rollerball bottles (find these at most health food stores or online)
  • A funnel (this will make things a lot easier!)


1. Then, add in your essential oils. I like to use between 10-15 drops of essential oil per bottle. However, you can use more or less depending on your needs.

2. Add your carrier oil by using the funnel to carefully fill just below the neck of the rollerball bottle

To use, simply roll the ball onto your skin and enjoy the therapeutic benefits. I like to keep mine in my purse for on-the-go use, but they can also be stored in a cool, dark place.
