Essential oils are magically in all the wonderful ways they can support the body, from babies all the way to our golden years, mother nature really out did herself. Just one drop of dōTERRA essential oils can help transform and support us both physically, emotionally and spiritually. Within 30 seconds of smelling or applying essential oils to our bodies, the body is utilizing the incredible volatile aromatic compounds before the mind processes what is going on. Essential oils are the life force of plants, our body love essential oils and responds well to them, the essential oils help our body get back to homeostasis so our immune system can do it's job and keep us healthy.
Scientifically proven to calm, soothe, and relieve anxious thoughts, essential oils are a marvelous tool to have in any home.. They can support deep sleep, relaxation, and lift feelings of overwhelm and stress. In this fast pace world it's nice to bring mama natural into the home to give us a helping hand.
Why rollerblends? Doterra has done an unbelievable job on putting together blends for all our needs. That being said, feeling empowered to mix oils and blends together to make a custom rollerblend is so delightful with a side of awesome town.
Here are some key factors to note when you make and use essential oil rollerballs/blends:
Your oils last way longer.
You can create endless amounts of rollerballs with one bottle of oil. This is a great way to have one in your purse, one in the bathroom, one in the kitchen...etc. Plus the efficiency of the oil isn't compromised when diluted.
Your oils are very effective.
Using oils "neat" or straight out of the bottle is effective, but not always the most desirable way to apply oils. Diluting your oils with a carrier oil (fractionated coconut oil, almonds, jojoba, etc.) actually keeps them on your skin longer and decreases the evaporation rate. Plus when you dilute, you get more surface area, which is amazing for massages.
Your popularity will soar.
I LOVE giving rollerball blends as gifts + every new oil user in my Essential Family receives a custom blend so they can start using the oils ASAP! If someone has never used oils before, rollerballs demystify the process. Easy peasy, just roll on and witness the magic. Most think they just smell good...but the emotional and health benefits are endless!.
Your life gets easier.
Rollerballs make everything with oils easier. Put them in your bag and you're out the door. No messy oils on your hands while you're out and about and need a quick application. Or when a naked 3 year old is running past you having a full melt down, you can roll the oil down their back as they scream past you.
Your family & friends are empowered.
I love rollerballs because they are highly diluted and very safe for kids. My boys 3 and 5 have their own oils in their rooms. They love to make up their own rollerblends and give them a fun name. They know the oils are great for helping their immune system. They also know some oils help with the way they feel, they know the oils can help when they are upset or really mad. They grab their oils or ask for me to get them and ask for them to be applied to their feet. I love that they are empowered to take action on their own.
The recipes also work perfectly in a diffuser (which is the perfect compliment to topical use for emotional support!) Just use as is or about half of the amount recommended.
Below are some of my favorite blends or popular ones I have made for new oily users in my tribe.
**All recipes are for created for 10ml rollerballs. Add the oils and then top rollerball off with fractionated coconut oil, shake and let sit for 24 hours. You could also use grapeseed, jojoba or almond oil. Creating rollerballs is like creating the perfect cocktail...each person will do it a little differently. Use these as starting points and find your perfect custom blend!**
Melissa is one of the most rare essential oils available...and it's benefits are mighty! It not only supports the immune system but it clears out feelings of overwhelm and hopelessness quickly. It's the oil of LIGHT and it helps to chase away those dark days. Frankincense is the KING of all the oils. It's perfect for spiritual enlightenment...as well as releasing anxious thoughts and feelings. And patchouli. is calming and grounding and helps the person using it see themselves as worthy. Amazing blend for your ROOT Charka.

I had an amazing mama starting her oily journey that had terrible pains from ovarian cysts. I made her up this roller-blend to help with the pain till her oils come in. She will roll it over her pain points + I gave her a protocol to balance her hormones with seeds. Castor oil pack on her abdomen in the evening and a balanced diet should quickly help.
