For Valentine’s I got Lola a bunch of sweet things to make roller bottles with. She LOVES making roller bottles and uses oils daily too. I really enjoy doing this with her. So as I was walking around Target gathering up a couple gifts for the kids- Finn got play dough, Ella got a LEGO set and then Lola was left. I told Kevin, well she really loves doing all the oils with me. So I am going to order her some fancy bottles, dried rose petals and dried lavender. And I knew it, she was in heaven and felt LOVED. Putting together roller bottle as a gift for someone is so unique and personal! It says- I know what you are going thru and what you might need for support. Lola gave her teacher the “unicorn roller bottle” (recipe below) for Valentines. I thought it was so thoughtful of Lola. She said that she knew her teacher would love the smell and the boost it would give her!

These are the items we used to make our roller bottles-
ORGANIC DRIED ROSES– HERE
ORGANIC DRIED LAVENDER– HERE
GOLD TOPPED ROLLER BOTTLES– HERE
JOJOBA OIL– HERE
FRACTIONATED COCONUT OIL– HERE
ESSENTIAL OILS– not all essential oils are not the same, a lot use fillers and they are diluted. I suggest doing research before! I choose to only use Young Living- they have the best seed- to seal processing system. (check out their seed to seal process here). I am a distributor, and share more below.
Roller Bottle Recipes-
- If you are adding any dried flowers make sure you leave space for them or add them at the start!
- After you add the oils and flowers- fill the rest of the way with a carrier oil- leave a little air on the top
- For my carrier oil I use fractionated coconut oil for most and then jojoba oil for anything face (doesn’t clog pores)
- These are for adults. My kids do use all these- but I eased them into the oils. I recommend doing half for kids. Do not use on infants. These are not intended for animals

- More on Essential Oils-
I use Young Living because I get wholesale on everything, you can get it too! You just have to buy a starter kit. The starter kit includes 12 of their best starter oils and a gorgeous diffuser to get you going with using oils in your home daily. The kits start at $165 and most the diffusers cost that alone. You can always buy one oil at a time and never get a starter kit- but you pay retail and it takes a long time to get all the oils to make and do the things to enjoy the oils everyday in your life. (If you would like to order you can HERE to keep reading).
