30 Roller Bottle Blends for Summer

Let me start off by sharing three reasons roller bottles are awesome.  

1) Empty roller bottles allow you to create custom blends of oils to address your particular needs. They can also be tailored to be more or less potent depending on the age of the recipient - the carrier oil to essential oil ratio can be altered to make a blend suitable for any age.

2) They're convenient for taking on-the-go - whether a purse, backpack, diaper bag, tote, hip pack (aka fanny pack), suitcase or even your pocket. 

3) It makes topical application of an essential oil super easy.

As you'll notice many of these roller bottle blends are good year round, that's because essential oils are multi-purpose and versatile. I do have some that are more specific for summertime, especially if you live in a 4-season climate, but ultimately the summertime recipes I'm sharing today will be good throughout the year.

You'll add the essential oils to a 10mL bottle then top with your carrier oil of choice. I've indicated the blends that contain photosensitive oils with an asterisk. Those indicated should not be applied in an area that will be exposed to the sun within 12 hours of application. Which brings me to where you'll want apply them. Each one is different based off the nature of blend and I'll be sharing the suggested application point with the recipe below. A basic rule of thumb is to apply to your pulse points (wrists, neck, etc.), bottoms of feet, spine, or the area in need, when possible.
