How to Use Essential Oil Roll Ons
Roller bottles make using essential oils very convenient. The smaller size makes it easy to take them on the go. You can put in a pocket, purse, backpack, or even a briefcase.
To use a roller bottle, you just need to invert the bottle and roll it onto your skin in the desired location.
Where to Apply Lavender Roll On?
Wondering where to apply your essential oils? It is best to roll on the area that you want the essential oils to help with. Got a sore neck? Apply roller blend to back of neck and shoulders. An ingrown toenail acting up? Apply directly to that location. Chest congestion and cough? Apply to upper chest and back.
Here are some common places that roller bottles are used on:
- Upper Chest
- Behind Ears
Another thing I LOVE about roller bottles is that I can make an oil blend in a small batch. Great for experimenting, testing a new oil, or just trying a new recipe. That way if I don't like it, I am not stuck with a huge bottle of something I will struggle to use.
