Essential Oil Roller Bottle Recipes: The Fervent Mama - Instead of carrying around that carrier and each bottle of oil, just make it easier for yourself and bottle them up together. These roller bottle recipes help!

If you’ve been using oils for any amount of time, then you’d know that you have some favorite blends. For a while, each time I wanted a specific blend, I’d just mix it up in my hands by pouring a drop or two of each mixed with a carrier. That wasn’t working.

I probably have like 15 roller bottles all over the house, each with different ingredients and purposes. But they’re just so easy to grab and go or roll on when I need it. Plus, I can mix them up for the kids too! They love having their own kid-safe blends!


For any recipe, you’ll need the same basics. As far as roller bottles go, I have a mix of clear and amber. I prefer the amber. For oils, NEVER use store bought oils, I really only suggest Young Living. Read more about Essential Oil Safety and Why you should choose Young Living. Then carrier oils, use your preferred carrier, I really like fractionated coconut oil or grapeseed.

Most recipes call for an 80-20 ratio, 80% carrier oil with 20% essential oil. For my 10ml bottles, I usually put between 20-25 drops of essential oil and then fill the rest with Fractionated Coconut Oil. For kids blends, I use 10-15 drops essential oils and the rest carrier.

For ease of use of any single essential oil, it can be mixed with a carrier into a roller bottle. But instead of carrying around that carrier and each bottle of oil, just make it easier for yourself and bottle them up together. You can even fit roller tops onto your old EO bottles too!

    On the teething blend, what areas of the body do you recommend rolling this on?

    1. Brooke Poston says:

      Across the jawline for best results! Personally, I use Copaiba and coconut oil directly onto the gums. However, I don’t suggest doing that unless you are comfortable with it and do a patch test before you do it to your baby. 🙂

  2. Is there a difference when using bottles that are clear to the amber colored ones? I mean do the clear ones affect the properties of the EOs?

    1. Brooke Poston says:

      Hi, Ozzy! It’s actually better to use amber colored bottles because they better protect the properties from the elements (like light).

  3. Love these! I’ve been loooking for some good essential oils recipes for roller balls. I’m going to try the “pain blend” on my husband, he gets sore in his back and shoulders from work. Thanks!!

    I just had to let you know that I made the Pain Blend and gave to my mom. She has been taking 6 to 8 pain pills per day for about 15 years. I thought what the heck lets just try. So I gave her a small roller bottle and told her to apply it to the bottom of her feet and to try rolling it onto the portion of her back that she suffers with (curvature of the spine, sciatica and two deteriorating disks). She said she put it on her feet and then felt good enough the vacuum. Her back started to hurt so she put it on the area that hurt. She finished what she was doing sat down and said, hey my back doesn’t hurt. She slept through the night for the first time in years. Now she calls me Dr. Daughter – LOL. thank you for posting these recipes.
