4 Best Carrier Oils for Roller Bottles and Aromatherapy Blends

Do you know the best carrier oils for roller bottles? Essential oil roller bottles are a favorite way to enjoy the benefits of aromatherapy. They are easy to make, only take a small amount of oil, and are compact and portable.

Carrier oils are needed to not only use essential oils safely, but to also use them wisely. Essential oils are very precious and take a vast amount of resources to make each drop, so cherish your bottle and get the most use out of it as you can. Dilute them well with a carrier oil so they will be easy to apply without losing their effectiveness.

First try the least amount of essential oils and add more only if needed, instead of just charging full steam ahead with a hand full of essential oil drops.

The way that a roller bottle function is that they have a metal ball, when it is rolled on the skin, a small oil trail disperses. No thick or sticky carrier oils can be used in roller bottles because the roller mechanism will not work as well. It is also best to use a shelf stable carrier oil to ensure a long shelf life of your roller recipe.

My favorite carrier oil to use in roll on bottles is jojoba oil. Jojoba oil can be purchased at a reasonable price and can be used in many essential oil blends. It is my go to carrier oil for most of my DIY skin care recipes. If you can only purchase one carrier oil, buy jojoba oil.

1. Jojoba Oil

A liquid wax that is near odorless and stores well. Because it is a wax, it doesn’t go rancid like other carrier oils. If you make a roller blend with essential oils that don’t expire for two years, then your roller blend will last 2 years! Jojoba oil mimics the skins own sebum, which helps to balance the skin. It is nourishing to very sensitive skin too.

2. Fractionated Coconut Oil

Virtually odorless and colorless, also extremely stable. It contains high levels of medium chain triglycerides, both caprylic and capric. This form of coconut oil is always in liquid form, unlike virgin coconut oil. Virgin coconut oil can not be used in roller bottle recipes because the oil hardens in cooler temperatures (less than 78 degrees F).

3. Sweet Almond Oil

Sweet almond oil is a light, all purpose oil that is suitable for all skin types and gentle enough for sensitive skin too. It is cold pressed from the seeds of the sweet almond tree. Let it soothe your skin and prevent moisture loss and dryness. It has a delicate enough aroma that it make a good choice for diluting essential oils.

Well known for its remarkable skin healing abilities on wrinkled, weathered, and aging skin. Let rosehip seed oil add radiance and moisture to your skin as it renews your complexion. Commonly used for soothing skin, reducing wrinkles, boosting collagen and increasing hydration.
