Roller ball blends are an extremely popular way to apply essential oils topically. Lately, I’ve been more into making these over other things with essential oils (aside from my diffuser, of course). I’ve been playing around with different blends I’ve found online and tweaking them to suit my preferences and needs. So, here is a list of my favorites! I’m calling this Part 1 because once I find/create other ones, I want to add to the list, so look out for Part 2 in the future!
I have seasonal allergies, and honestly, there is nothing quite as annoying as allergies. I get them really terribly in the spring. In autumn, it tends to be much less horrible…but still annoying.
Anyway, let’s get to it!
I never had a foot odor problem in my life…until I started working 12 hour shifts. And let me tell you, no matter how much powder you put on your feet and into your shoes, that is some serious funk after 12 hours. So, I scoured Pinterest for the most reasonable sounding solution. I came across a post that led me to the best solution for stinky feet (as I write this, I cannot for the life of me find the post on Pinterest that led to the blog post…If I find it, I’ll add the original in here) and the best part? It’s super simple!
I live in the mountains. And because I live in the mountains, all critters seem to be bigger, spiders included. I don’t have a particular disdain for those 8-legged critters, but I don’t want them in my apartment either. I have a cat, but she’s extremely lazy and is not exactly all about keeping her home pest free. With the winter months coming, and the nights getting chillier, the chances of spiders creeping into my home through the cracks under my doors and windows is steadily increasing.
So, I created a blend based off of various recipes I have found on the web. I basically took the common ingredients among the recipes I found and created something that I believe helps.
There are many options out there when it comes to essential oils. I haven’t tried all of them. In fact, I’ve only tried 1. That probably comes from the fact that when I find something I like, I don’t like to branch outside of it. I have trust issues with these things, so I like to stick with what I know.
Keep in mind that I am not a professional, and I can only tell you what I currently know based off what I have read. Also keep in mind that I am not affiliated with this company in any shape or form. I am not being paid to promote them.
Alright, so who is it?
I personally struggle with insomnia. I have for as long as I can remember (even back in my teen years). While I don’t swear by essential oils as a magical cure for chronic insomnia, I do believe they help me as part of my established bedtime routine. So, I’ve created a post of my favorite sleep blends!
