Anxiety Essential Oil Roll-On (Roller-Bottle) Recipe

Anxiety Essential Oil Roll-On Recipe

Essential Oil Roll-On Bottles are also known as Rollerballs and Roller Bottles.

This anti-anxiety rollerball recipe simplifies the process of making your own pre-diluted essential oil roller-bottle to help combat feelings of anxiety and panic.

What is the Best Method of Using Essential Oils for Anxiety?

To help combat anxiety, I personally benefit most when I use a personal essential oil inhaler. However, the use of an inhaler isn't practical for everyone or for every situation (same with roll-ons too!). To learn what a personal inhaler is, please read AromaWeb's Aromatherapy and Essential Oil Inhalers Guide.

If you're going to be around other individuals who possibly could have a contraindication or sensitivity to aromas or to the particular essential oils used in this anxiety rollerball recipe, it may be best to consider using a personal inhaler instead. Personal inhalers help to prevent others from having to smell your blends and they are more private. The disadvantage to personal inhalers is that you manually have to open the inhaler each time you want to use it.

The topical application of diluted essential oil using a roller-ball is a great choice for when you are active or in situations where you aren't able to manually reach for, open and sniff a personal inhaler.

Ingredients to Make One Anxiety Essential Oil 10ml Roll-On

This recipe is formulated to to make one 10ml roll-on bottle. Verify the size roll-on bottle that you have. If necessary, adjust the recipe to accommodate for the size roll-on bottle that you have.

Drops are used as the form of measurement in this recipe so that this blend is as easy as possible to create. This anxiety essential oil roll-on blend is not intended for mass duplication/commercial sale. For the most accurate measurements and ability to reduplicate a blend, measuring by weight is best.

Directions for Making the Anxiety Essential Oil Roller-Ball Recipe

  • Make sure that your hands are clean and dry when touching the components of the roll-on bottle.
  • If necessary, remove the top from the empty roll-on bottle and place the components of the roll-on bottle on a clean surface.
  • Begin by adding the essential oils to your clean roll-on bottle. Carefully add the number of drops specified for each essential oil.
  • Fill the rest of the bottle with Fractionated Coconut Oil.
  • Add the roller assembly to the bottle and then add the cap. Make sure that all components are securely in place and that the cap has been screwed up well.
  • Gently shake the bottle to mix the essential oils into the Fractionated Coconut Oil.
  • Label the bottle and add the date that you made the roll-on recipe so that you can keep track of the shelf-life. Also label the bottle with the ingredients or keep a notebook that includes the ingredients.
  • Although the roll-on may be used immediately, it's best to set your roll-on aside for at least 1-2 days before use so that all of the essential oils have time to thoroughly and evenly blend into the Fractionated Coconut Oil.

Important Tips and Comments

Everyone is different, and this essential oil anxiety roll-on recipe may not work for you, or it may not work as well for you as it does for me. However, the anxiety blend can be a great starting point in your quest to create your own personal anxiety blend that works best for you.

I personally love including Neroli Essential Oil for its beautiful aroma and anxiolytic properties. However, you can still certainly work with this recipe even if you do not have Neroli Essential Oil or any of the other essential oils available. Petitgrain Essential Oil is an affordable substitute for Neroli. If you do not have Geranium Essential Oil or do not like its aroma, you could substitute that for one additional drop of Neroli, Lavender or Mandarin.

Never fill a roll-on bottle with just essential oil. Essential oils should always be properly diluted before application to the skin.

This recipe calls for the use of Fractionated Coconut Oil as the carrier oil for use in the anxiety roll-on blend because Fractionated Coconut Oil is a clear, lightweight, non-greasy oil that has a long shelf life. If you prefer, you can substitute the Fractionated Coconut Oil with a different carrier oil.

If you are used to using aromatic products from companies that make their fragrances super strong, you could possibly find that this rollerball recipe may smell weak to you at first. Avoid adding more essential oil to make the aroma stronger. If the blend does seem aromatically weak to you, read AromaWeb's Guide to Safely Diluted Essential Oil Blends May Smell Weak At First.

The photo depicts essential oils and carrier oils that are not labeled for retail sale. Because AromaWeb is a brand-neutral website, unbranded bottles are depicted. AromaWeb never recommends purchasing essential oils or carrier oils that are not fully labeled with complete information.

Alternative Anxiety Roll-On Blend Formulation

The Ingredients for 5ml Master Bottle Blend section of my My Favorite Essential Oil Blend for Anxiety can be used to create a Master Blend that you may wish to try to see how it works for you.

To use the Master Blend with this recipe, follow the instructions below:

  • Create the Master Blend as shown on the My Favorite Essential Oil Blend for Anxiety page.
  • Once you have created the Master Blend, add 4-6 drops of the Master Blend to your 10ml roll-on bottle and fill the rest of the roll-on bottle with Fractionated Coconut Oil.
  • Add the roller assembly to the bottle and then add the cap. Make sure that all components are securely in place and that the cap has been screwed up well.
  • Gently shake the bottle to mix the essential oils into the Fractionated Coconut Oil.
  • Label the bottle and add the date that you made the roll-on recipe so that you can keep track of the shelf-life. Also label the bottle with the ingredients or keep a notebook that includes the ingredients.
  • Although the roll-on may be used immediately, it's best to set your roll-on aside for at least 1-2 days before use so that all of the essential oils have time to thoroughly and evenly blend into the Fractionated Coconut Oil.

How To Use The Anti-Anxiety Roll-On

To use the Anxiety Essential Oil Roll-On, remove the cap and glide the rollerball over the inside of your wrists, your temples (make sure the blend does not get in your eyes) and/or on the pulse points of your neck.

To effectively assist you in combating anxiety, it's best that you place it on exposed areas of your body so that you can smell and inhale the aromatic molecules so that they enter your lungs (which in turn will lead to your bloodstream) faster.

Reapply as necessary, but do not apply excessively.

Discontinue use immediately if you experience any skin irritation or difficulties from usage.

Follow the below precautions and the safety tips shown on this page.

Precautions

Although this blend is formulated so that it can be lightly rolled onto your temples, this blend is not intended to be used elsewhere on the face, near your eyes, near your mouth or near other orifices. Do not apply the roll-on to damaged skin, cuts, wounds or other problem areas.

Shelf Life

Use Within 3-6 Months. Although the individual ingredients used in this recipe have a longer shelf life, the roll-on comes into contact with your skin which allows oil and debris to get into the blend. The dirt and debris will shorten the shelf life.

For the freshest and most sanitary product, therefore, it's best to use it up and make a fresh roll-on bottle within 3-6 months.
