We are kicking this off with a fun topic…How to make a roller!
One of the coolest things about essential oils is the ability to make all sorts of DIY recipes, including your favorite blends! Making your own blend in a roller bottle is a great way for easy application, traveling on the go, and day-to-day use! It also helps all your oils last and goes a long way. You can come up with great rollers such as your favorite perfume, calming blend for both you and/or kids, a blend for focus, skincare, etc!

It’s always better to use glass when making your DIY oily things in order to keep the oils free of any degradation due to improper storage and leaking of any chemicals from plastic containers). The most common size roller bottle used is 10ml. Here is a good one we like to use: Roller Bottles. You can also use an empty YL EO bottle and add a roller top (that YL also sells) to use for your DIY roller bottle: Roller Filaments

When making your roller bottle, you want to dilute your essential oils in order to make your oils last a long time. Diluting doesn’t take away from the potency of the essential oil, it’s just mixing it with a “carrier oil” (AKA a fatty oil from the seed of the plant).

Here are our favorite carrier oils to use to dilute:
YL V6 vegetable oil complex
Fractionated coconut oil
Organic jojoba oil (great for face/skin)

And here’s a great useful guide to follow when it comes to diluting oils (referencing the 10ml bottle):
Oil drop dilution percentage:
1 drop — makes up 0.5% of the bottle
2 drops — 1%
4 drops — 2%
6 drops — 3%
10 drops — 5%
20 drops —10%
50 drops — 25%

Once you add your oil drops of choice to match your preferred dilution percentage, fill the rest of the bottle with a carrier oil!

You can also add some pretty stones and/or flower petals to add some beauty to your bottle!

Let’s learn all the things about balms!!
They make it super easy to apply oils because they are already predicted and mixed up for whatever purpose we intend to use them for! No rounding up all your oils every time you need to use them!

All you need is a mason jar (or grab a cute jar from amazon 
https://amzn.to/3fgcP7j), a fatty oil, and your oils! I prefer to use coconut oil because it is solid, which makes it easy. Make sure you use organic, unrefined, cold-pressed coconut oil!

Here are the easy instructions:
1. melt your coconut oil on low heat
2. pour in your mason jar once melted
3. add your oils
4. put the balm in your fridge to harden
