Our journey begins today with a special feature that encapsulates the essence of our brand: a hands-on guide to creating your own essential oil roller. This step-by-step guide is designed to empower you with the knowledge and skills to bring the soothing, invigorating, and healing powers of essential oils into your daily life. Whether you’re a seasoned enthusiast or a curious beginner, this guide is crafted to enhance your wellness journey with The Candle Company’s touch of nature and luxury.
To create your own essential oil roller with The Candle Company’s guide, you’ll need the following items:
- Roller Bottle: Choose a high-quality glass roller bottle, preferably in a dark color like amber or cobalt, to protect the essential oils from light degradation.
- Sterilization Tools: You’ll need alcohol wipes or a suitable sterilizing solution to ensure your roller bottle and tools are free from contaminants.
- Carrier Oil: Select a carrier oil that suits your skin type and preferences. Common options include jojoba oil, fractionated coconut oil, sweet almond oil, or grapeseed oil.
- Essential Oils: Choose from The Candle Company’s range of certified organic essential oils. Options may include lavender, peppermint, eucalyptus, or others depending on your desired effect and scent preference.
- Essential Oil Funnel: A small funnel (optional) can make the process of transferring oils into the roller bottle easier, especially if it has a narrow opening.
- Labels and Pen: For marking your roller bottle with the blend name, date, and ingredients used.
- Gloves: To keep the process hygienic and prevent any possible irritation from handling essential oils directly.
With these items, you’ll be all set to create a personalized essential oil roller blend that caters to your needs and preferences.
Step 1: Sanitize
Before you begin, it’s important to clean and sanitize your roller bottle and any other equipment you will be using. This will ensure that the roller bottle is free of any contaminants or impurities that could potentially harm your skin.
Step 2: Fill The Bottle With Carrier Oil
Once your bottle is clean and sanitized, you can start filling. Start by filling the bottle about 90% of the way with your carrier oil. This carrier oil will serve as the base for your essential oil blend and will help dilute the essential oils so that they are safe for use on the skin. If the bottle you are using has a small opening, you may want to consider using an essential oil funnel to make the process easier.
Step 3: Add Essential Oils
Next, it’s time to add your essential oils. The typical ratio is around 20-30 drops of essential oil per 10ml of carrier oil. However, you can adjust the ratio to your personal preference. Some popular essential oils that can be used in roller bottles include lavender, peppermint, and eucalyptus. To see our full line of certified organic essential oils check out our shop page.
Note: To avoid potential skin irritation, make sure that the oils you are using are safe for topical application.
Step 4: Mix
Once you’ve added your essential oils, gently roll the bottle between your hands to mix the oils together. This will help ensure that the oils are evenly distributed throughout the roller bottle.
Step 5: Apply
Finally, apply the roller bottle to the skin as desired. You can use your roller bottle for a variety of purposes, such as reducing stress, soothing sore muscles, and even as a natural perfume.
