Lavender essential oil is beloved for many reasons. Its relaxing and comforting floral aroma is so very rejuvenating. Having a simple Lavender Roll On ready for daily use can truly be an asset.
Feel agitated or stressed? Use a Lavender Roll On to melt your worries away. I have one that I keep at my desk in my home office. It gets used at least once a day for a variety of reasons.
Lavender is one of the most popular essential oils because of its many therapeutic properties. Before getting into the oily roll on, let look a little more at lavender essential oil.
Lavender Essential Oil Benefits
This versatile oil is an absolute MUST HAVE essential oil for any collection and every home (in my opinion!). Here are just a few wonderful benefits:
- Encourages balance in all body systems
- Main components of Lavender, linalol and linalyl acetate, have sedative and anxiety relieving actions
- Lavender has excellent antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory actions
- Renowned for its ability to nourish and heal the skin
- Has analgesic properties (pain relieving actions)
Why Use Roll On Bottles
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.
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.

Place 2-10 drops of Lavender oil into roller bottle. The number of drops will depend on the dilution level you want to obtain.
Using 2 drops is 1% dilution which is good if this blend is being made for a young child, elderly person, or pregnant woman. 10 drops would be 5% dilution. You can start with 4 drops (2% dilution) and then add more if needed.
Fill the rest of the bottle with jojoba oil to just below the shoulder of the bottle. Place roller top on and shake to mix the oils. That's it...Your ready to roll!
