Safe essential oil habits:
If you’re brand new to essential oils and are gifting them to someone who has never used them, be sure to use safe practices and ask them to do a small patch test before rolling this all over them. Here is how we make sure we are using our oils safely and how we can educate others to do the same with their new roller.
- Always dilute the essential oil with a carrier oil(such as coconut or jojoba oil) before applying to your skin. We talk more about this in the post.
- Do a patch test before using (apply to a small area of your skin, and wait 24 hours to see if irritation occurs).
- Don’t ingest the contents of the roller and keep out of reach of small children and pets.
- Use pure essential oils from Young Living, and not knock off blends.
- Check-in with a doctor to make sure the essential oil you’re considering does not interact with any medications you’re taking.

Make a beautiful, earth and body-friendly gift
This time of year, we start shopping for our friends & family. I know it’s only mid-October, but I like to be done by November. In the last year, I began making so many of the items that I would have normally bought as gifts (or wished to receive.) I loved gifting items like soaps, candles, snacks & sweets. It is important to me to make some gifts for my loved ones homemade.
It takes a little bit of time and planning to produce a homemade gift, but no more than it does to agonize what to give your friends, family, and coworkers. You want to show them they mean a lot to you, but you also want to save money.
It feels so right to make something simple. I promise a sustainable, nicely made gift will be more fulfilling and memorable for all parties involved. Creating something that will promote wellness is so much better than aimlessly browsing online, worried about what to pick, or much worse… facing the mall. It doesn’t get much more simple than these essential oil rollers, and I will show you how to package it in a beautiful, heartfelt way.
A gift for you, a gift for me…
I have to admit, the wannabe minimalist in me loves gifting and also giving myself gifts. When I am doing my shopping, I always inevitably end up with a few things for myself and for my family. I have a feeling I’m not alone. So, I have a complete win-win situation for you.
These simple homemade wellness rollers from essential oils from the Young Living premium starter kit are the perfect gift for you and others.
Many of us now know that we need to avoid artificial fragrances and low quality “self-care” products from major retailers. Take care of YOU and take care of your friends and family by offering them therapeutic wellness rollers that are actually good for them, their mood, their sleep, their toddlers…
How the premium starter kit support you?
If you don’t have a premium starter kit yet, there is no better time to start benefiting from essential oils. This time of year we do become more susceptible to illness due to the uptake in time indoors, being sedentary, stress, and all of the sweets consumed between Halloween – Christmas. Grab yourself a kit to enjoy the toxic-free fragrance, all of the many ways essential oils can support your wellbeing, and use the oils to make the most beautiful smelling essential oil blends that will promote wellness.
I even put together these cards so you and your gift-ee will know exactly how to use them if they’ve never used a roller before!
So…what will you choose?
Are you going to rush to the mall, spend too much money on low-quality products that should never be put on our bodies in the first place? Or do you want to make a beautiful gift that benefits everyone! I know what I choose.
The first step is making these premium starter kit wellness roller is obviously getting the starter kit into your home. I always recommend this specific kit, because it’s the best value and oftentimes, makes the most sense.

You also receive a welcome gift from me, which is an additional diffuser.

Where do I find the actual rollers?
What else goes inside the premium starter kit wellness roller?
You need to dilute these essential oils with a carrier oil to make them safe to go directly onto the skin. Essential oils are potent, so we protect our skin by using a barrier. Some easily accessible and popular carrier oils are fractionated coconut oil, jojoba oil, rosehip oil, calendula oil, or even just olive oil.
Fractionated coconut oil or MTC oil. This one can be used for diluting essential oils and internally for coffee and your cooking. It’s also sold in a glass bottle, which eliminates plastic waste. You can use any brand you desire, but do not use regular melted coconut oil. Fractionated coconut oil will not solidify at cooler temperatures.
Jojoba oil: This is the brand I use regularly and can highly recommend! Jojoba oil is ideal for blends that may go on the face, as it will not clog pores. This carrier oil has remarkable effects on the skin, scalp, beard, and hair, and It can be used for all skin types.
Rosehip oil: This is the brand I use regularly and can highly recommend! Rosehip oil is ideal for blends that may go on the face, as it will not clog pores. Helps with acne, even skin tone, skin discoloration, lightens dark spots, helps to diminish scars, smooth out wrinkles, under-eye bags, and stretch marks. Say goodbye to dry skin!

This kraft paper really comes in handy! We use it for all of our Christmas and Easter gifts, and it’s made with 100% recycled paper.
The blends I came up with!
While I did not put the exact number of drops I would use, I usually add 30 to a diluted essential oil roller, and use 10 of each. Feel free to play around with the blends to see how much of each oil you’d like to use!
Friends with a student, or someone who struggles focusing in the classroom or while working? This blend is perfect for them! This delicious smelling minty roll-on will improve concentration, alertness, and stimulate the brain while uplifting your spirits with sweet citrus notes.

This roller simultaneously allows you to enjoy the moment and relax while lemon + citrus fresh stimulates and energize, the perfect recipe for a great day!

Citrus Fresh is a relaxing, calming blend loved by children and adults alike. Rich in the powerful antioxidant d-limonene, it supports overall wellness while bringing about a sense of well-being, creativity, and feelings of joy.
