This roll on essential oil blend is perfect for keeping in your purse. Just apply whenever you need a little stress relief!
I thought I’d share this easy tutorial to make your own roll on essential oil blend for stress relief. We could all use a little help with stress I think, right?
Sometimes I get in a DIY/healthy/essential oil mood and make my own bath and beauty products. For example: deodorant, lotion, and perfume. When I get in these moods and spread out my essential oils, droppers, carrier oils, and bottles, Darryl likes to refer to me as a “mad scientist.” :)
I love playing around with essential oils and seeing what combinations I like and how they affect my mood. I made a stress relief roll-on last week and I’ve been using it everyday and love it, so I thought I’d share the recipe.
This was so easy to make, and I’ve been enjoying the benefits of these oils so much! If you are new to essential oils, don’t be intimidated, give this roll on essential oil blend a try! It’s very simple to make, and I think you’ll love it.

Ingredients for roll-on essential oil blend:
- 2 teaspoons grape seed oil
- 4 drops lavender essential oil
- 3 drops bergamot essential oil (Bergaptene-free)
- 2 drops Roman chamomile essential oil
- 1 drop geranium essential oil
- Use a small funnel to put the grape seed oil in a dark glass rollerball bottle.
- Add the essential oils. Shake or roll gently to combine.
- To use, simply roll on wrists or neck.
I don’t have any special allegiance to any particular brand of essential oils, I usually get the Aura Cacia brand at Whole Foods, or I order from Plant Therapy. You do want to make sure that the bergamot essential oil says “Bergaptene-Free” on it, because bergamot oil is a very phototoxic oil, which means that it can burn your skin if you are wearing it and expose that skin to sunlight. The Bergaptene-Free version has most of the components that cause sunburn removed.
To use this, simply roll on to your wrists, sides of your neck, or even your collarbone. Enjoy the lovely fragrance and feel the stress reducing effects of these oils.
