Aromatherapy Rollerball DIY

Have you ever fallen in love with an essential oil blend and wished it was a perfume?
Or do you want to take aromatherapy on the go to use on your pulse points when you need a pick-me-up?

Create your own aromatherapy rollerballs with this simple DIY!

What you’ll need:

* S A F E T Y   N O T I C E *

Even though the essential oils are being diluted in this recipe for topical application, we still recommend avoiding blends with high quantities of spice oils (such as clove, cinnamon etc.) and taking care with lemon-scented oils (such as lemongrass, may chang and lemon myrtle etc.) as these can potentially cause skin irritation and photosensitivity. If you would like to use blends containing these oils, we recommend consulting an aromatherapist to ensure you are using aromatherapy safely and effectively.

Step 1. 

Add up to 10 drops of your chosen essential oil blend to the rollerball.


Step 2. 

Fill with jojoba oil to the shoulder of the bottle, leaving room for the lid.


Step 3. 

Firmly press the roller top in.


Step 4. 

Give it a gentle shake, label your bottle, and enjoy!


Not sure which blend to choose?

Here are some suggestions…


Traditionally, creating perfumes is an intricate artform that deeply considers how scents layer, how long they last and how they synergise with skin. When it’s an aromatherapy perfume, such as our divine aromatherapy perfume range, further care and attention is required to capture the personality of a signature essential oil, and enhance its aroma to awaken your imagination, enhance your wellbeing, express your personality and arouse emotion and passion. Perfumes are also customarily created with a special perfume ethanol base, and contain a stronger dilution of essential oils to have lasting wear.

However, for a simple DIY aromatherapy rollerball you can wear as you would a perfume, use the recipe above with some of our beautiful essential oil blends.

This way, you can create your own mesmerising perfumes to wear your favourite aromas as your own signature scent. Conveniently pocket-sized, these are perfect for topping up when out and about, fantastic for travel, and a wonderful way to indulge your imagination and create some beautiful, natural, plant-based, wearable aromatherapy fragrances.
