Essential Oil Roller Bottle Recipies to Match Label Sets

Welcome to Creative & Somewhat Useful! These are the recipes I recommend to fill you roller bottles with once my label sets have been applied.

First, a few tips on applying the labels. They are printed on quite thick adhesive paper. To get a good application I recommend ‘curling’ the label first, before applying it.
This can be done two ways, either by just rolling it up or by pulling it across the edge of a table or other sharp corner to put a curl in the paper.
Before doing that think about the direction you want the text to read in. I like to apply the labels so the text runs down the length of the bottle as they are easier to read that way, but either direction will work!
Just make sure to curl the label in the right direction for the look you want – and do the same for the whole set.

The labels are not waterproof but can be easily sealed by painting the applied label with Mod Podge or clear nail polish. Just make sure you cover the edges well.
I highly recommend doing this as it makes the labels very durable so they stay pretty!

The titles I have chosen to include in the sets are meant to be generic so you can interpret them as suits you. Having said that I have been asked often to share the recipies I use.
These are the eight bottles I carry around with me – not all of them all the time, but these are my family’s ‘go to’ rollers. I hope you find them as useful as we do.

All these recipes work with a basic ratio of 20 drops of essential oils to a 10ml roller bottle. Remember to dilute to half that for use with children under 10 years old.

Happy Head

For use in relieving headaches, although my Mum finds it works well on aching knees too!

Gift Set Recipies: Soothing Body Butter

Make this multipurpose cream base and store in a large jar. Add oils to smaller amounts as needed.
As it contains Cocoa Butter, the finished cream smells like white chocolate – so my favourite oil to add is orange – yum!
This cream has a fairly low melt point, so needs to be stored in a cool place out of sunlight.


  • ¼ Cup Cocoa Butter
  • ¼ Cup Shea Butter
  • ¼ Cup Almond Oil – Sweet
  • ¼ Cup Coconut Oil
  • Top with carrier oil in a 10 ml roller bottle

Melt all ingredients, except essential oils, together over a gentle heat.
Allow to cool and set.
Whip, using an electric beater, until white and peaks form.
Store in an air tight container & decant into 100gm jar.
Add 10 drops of your chosen essential oil.

Gift Set Recipies: Face Serum

This is a great, all natural, DIY essential oil face serum recipe that reduces the look of fine lines and even skin tones.
As it contains Lemon Oil it may leave skin sun sensitive, so please take care when applying.
Apply to face after washing in the evening. Do not rinse.


  • ½ Cup Jojoba Oil
  • 10 x Frankincense
  • 5 x Lemon
  • 5 x Lavender
  • Top with Jojobo oil in a 10 ml roller bottle
