From immune support during cold & flu season to a zit zapper for that surprise in the morning, our family uses these recipes daily. These tools will transform your families wellness! Once you realize how simple and effective these oils are to use in your daily life, you won't leave home without your bag of oil goodies.
HOW TO MAKE THE ROLLER BOTTLES
It's super simple to make your own rollers.
All you need is:
- Fractionated Coconut Oil - Coconut oil that stays in it's liquid format because the proteins have been removed so it doesn't go back to being solid. Coconut oil mixes nicely with essential oils, (just give the roller a shake before use). Jojoba oil is also a nice choice for skin use recipes .... it has a similar PH to your skin. You can order through your dōTERRA account, or search your local health food store.
- Roller Bottles - I like to use 10ml glass roller bottles with a glass roller from therootandpetal.com and EOS.Life.com Also search your local area for suppliers.
- Dilution - the recipes I use are made for a 10ml glass roller bottle. You can half the recipe for a 5ml. My recipes are made with a dilution rate for an adult (age 12 years +), half the recipe for kids, and quarter the recipe for babies.
COLD & FLU BOMB
We all need a little help protecting ourselves in cold season right? I like to keep this roller in my purse, in my car, by the kitchen sink, in my daughters sock drawer, and next to my toothbrush. Prevention is KEY...and it can be so easy! I want to keep my families immune system strong & ward away the germs. These 5 super essential oils: frankincense, melaleuca , on guard, lemon, oregano have antiviral, anti fungal, cleansing, immune building, free radical warding, and antioxidant properties to help keep our immune system functioning at it's optimal level.
Sometimes I find myself tossing & turning when my head hits the pillow...gah! no fun! I love to have this roller on my nightstand to swipe on my feet and wrists and send me into slumber. doTERRA's serenity blend combines lavender, ylang ylang, vetiver, sandalwood, marjoram...all to promote relaxation, calming the mind, and lessen tension. Cedarwood is a grounding oil that can promote emotional balance and relaxation. Swipe on your wrists & big toe at bedtime. Massage into the soles of a fussy baby, add to a bath before bed, or put a few drops of each into your bedroom diffuser.
CANKER SORE SUPPORT
Sometimes they arrive! My daughter who is 10 gets these every few months. Ideally I would like her to roll the roller on her finger and put it directly on the canker sore in her mouth....she won't. To wimpy about the taste! So if you are brave do that. Alternatively...rub on the outside of your cheek or mouth...wherever the canker is. Since clove is a "hot" oil, if you feel the heat, dilute by rubbing some plain coconut oil on the location. Frankincense - for wound healing & cellular regeneration, Geranium - tissue regeneration, Clove - for infection & help to numb the pain.
ZAP THE ZITS
Don't you love those morning red spots? Or the times when you can't see it yet...but it hurts and you know it's brewing? Swipe a line of this blend on the spot. Super easy & convenient - keep it with your face wash and in your purse. It won't leave a ugly white line that people can see. Melaleuca (or tea tree oil...same thing) will help dry it out and kill the bacteria. Simple.
Everyone can use help in this department every once in a while! We love to keep a roller in each bathroom and I have it in my purse at all times. Digestzen is a blend containing fennel, peppermint, anise, ginger, tarragon, caraway and coriander. Digestzen & Wild Orange are both brilliant essential oils to help ease occasional stomach discomfort, maintain a healthy gastrointestinal tract, and aid in digestion. I use it by rolling around my belly button for constipation/diarrhea/gas, rolling on my esophagus for heartburn, rolling on my tummy and wrists to ease motion sickness. Sometimes I'll put Digestion right under my tongue for a more speedy action as it absorbs into your blood stream faster there. Try massaging this roller blend onto the feet of a fussy baby for relief of colicky pains. This was definitely my "gateway" essential oil roller bottle!!
