Sleepy Time Roller Ball

My new thing is making roller balls. There are a million and one recipes out there. I made up my own for this one but I'm sure something similar is floating around on the internet. Here's how it works:

1) Take a used up bottle of oil, rinse it out and peel the label off. Lemon oil is great for getting the sticky residue off the outside of the bottle.

2) Drip your oils of choice into the bottle. I used what I had on hand which consisted of:

12 drops Lavender
10 drops Cedarwood
3 drops Patchouli
2 drops Orange

3) Swish the oils around for a few seconds to allow them to meld. Have the oils sit for 24 hours to form a synergy.

4) The next day, add a carrier oil (olive oil, grape seed oil, sweet almond oil.....any fatty kitchen oil) to your bottle. You can use a 50/50 ratio of essential oils to carrier oil, or add a bit more carrier oil to make your synergy to last longer. Snap a roller ball filament on top of your bottle, and voila!

You can use this as you are getting ready for bed.  Roll on the bottom of your feet, on your wrists, behind your ears, the back of your neck...anywhere you desire..... and LIGHTS OUT!

One really great app for essential oil education and recipes is called TheEOBar. It's not free, but it's super informative and worth each penny of the $6.99 it costs.
