And I’m sharing an essential oil AND gemstone infused roller bottle recipe I call “Comfort & Joy”…because ’tis the season! Hey, if we’re to pull off “merry & bright”, we’re gonna need a little “comfort & joy” to make it happen. Am I right? 

Dedication:

I feel like I might have stolen this idea from my daughter. I’m pretty sure we were talking and she mentioned it and then I ran with it. So thank you, Evangeline, for being so gracious and for being the creative inspiration behind what I’m about to show off and claim as mine, or at least my version, for my handmade holiday project below.

Okay, back to the topic at hand. Supplies: 

  • roller bottles (similar ones here
  • Ylang Ylang essential oil (Did I mention that quality matters? Not a Young Living member? WHAT?! We need to talk! Get the kit & membership and join our awesome community of oily bloggers and friends HERE! You need oils and we need you in our community and know what? I’ll hook you up with some sweet holiday surprises because Santa told me you were good this year!)) 
  • Lavender essential oil
  • Peppermint essential oil
  • Carrier oil (liquid coconut oil or try Young Living V6…choose something clear. You’ll want to be able to see the gemstones!) 
  • amethyst and rainbow fluorite chips (check for them at my most favorite shop in the whole entire world: The Lunar Fae)

Get busy: 

It’s pretty self-explanatory but here we go! Pictures and everything! After all, I take my responsibility as DIY blogger seriously! 

Step #1: I added the gemstone chips to the roller bottle. diy essential oil gemstone roll on

Step #2: Then dripped 10 drops of Ylang Ylang + 10 drops of lavender + 1 drop of peppermint into the bottle. Think happy thoughts and good intentions! Positive vibes and lots of love! diy essential oil gem stone recipe

Essence:

Comfort & Joy blend…

  • Amethyst = calming
  • Rainbow fluorite = harmony
  • Ylang Ylang = relaxing & romantic
  • Lavender = mood booster & relaxing
  • Peppermint = positivity & peace

Note: Choose your own oils and create a blend personal to you. Remember some oils have color like amber, yellow or blue. Same with carrier oils. Normally I would have chosen to pair the florals with something citrus-y but I didn’t want to take away from seeing the gemstones, so I altered my recipe and chose what I felt worked nicely. 

Step #3: Next I topped it off with carrier oil. diy essential oil and gem stones

Step #4: And popped in the roller ball, screwed on the lid and decorated with decorative tape and a label. Ta-da! All done!

It’s a BEAUTIFUL personal handmade gift!

Because – friends don’t let friends wear synthetic fragrances!

BECAUSE WE LOVE YOU!

What a beautiful gift idea for friends and family (if I don’t say so myself) and a super sweet stocking stuffer! I’d be stoked to get it and your friends will too! It smells SO pretty! Uh…so comforting. So joyful! 

diy essential oil gem infused roll on

You’ll have to let me know if you try it and what you think! 

Shake and apply topically by rolling on to wrists, behind ears, neck…wherever you desire! But avoid eyes. And inside of ears. And mouth. I don’t recommend that. Probably not very tasty.

Smell pretty & enjoy!

Or give! Make one for you and one for a friend. Give the gift of essential oils and handmade pretties, not carcinogenic synthetic uglies!

What we did: 

Add 10 drops of each essential oil (Joy, Bergamot, Grapefruit) to the roller bottle, top off with carrier oil (fractionated coconut oil, V6 or carrier oil of your choice). Secure the rollerball fitment and lid. It has a pretty perfume-y smell with an uplifting scent. WARNING: Citrus essential oils are photosensitive.
