5 Essential Oil rollerballs for kids, that are a must for moms

Sharing is caring!

So for some of you coming from Pinterest, you may find that the original post I created that went with the pin you clicked had to be rewritten in its entirety, pictures, roller names, labels and all! Just so I can remain compliant with FDA requirements. They can sort of be party poopers, which at times makes bragging about the awesomeness of these oils kind of hard. But hey, once you and I become good friends, which I hope we do, we can chat one on one all day long about them. Until then, I'm going to share with you the complaint, let's keep Ruth out of trouble post. okay!

Essential oil rollerballs for kids

When I first started using Young Living Essential oils I had an Eye-opening experience. I realized how unprepared I was as a mom. Yes, I am that mom, the hot mess one!  At least that is how I envision me.

Before Essential oils, when my kids got under the weather,  I was forever running around like a chicken with my head chopped off. Trying to find this or that to make things better. Half the time, a run to the store was necessary because whatever I needed, I typically didn't have or it was so expired and I was scared to use it. Heaven forbid I was under the weather too. I also got so tired of having to call my Mother-in-Law to come to my rescue and to make a grocery/ drug store run. I do have a limit to how many times I look like a panicked, crazed, bumbling mom. As a mom, I do have some pride you know.

Then I started using essential oils. I realized real quick the easiest way to actually use them was to be proactive and have things already made and ready to use. What, me? actually, I have my ducks in a row. I know, what a staggering revelation!

But to actually be prepared for my kids inevitable under the weather moments wouldn't take all that much time.  It takes about 20 minutes to get most of what I need prepped and ready. Once ready, the key is to keep it handy at all times. Which is simple.

I've narrowed it down to what I think is the top 5 essential oil rollerballs for kids. That any prepared mom wants to keep on hand to help make life a little easier.

When you think about it, there are 5 times with kids, moms just need some help.

When your kids falls and the tears begin to flow.  Man, I hate seeing the tears! Love this “Oh-no” roller for helping make smiles appear.

The Sniffleme roller is a refreshing, energetic aroma to help perk up little ones. Roll a little on their chest.

Dreaded hot head, it's when you know your little one is under the weather! Put “Cool Down”  on their pulse points to help soothe and cool their skin.

“Tummy-time”, this blend is gentle and soothing with just a little rub on the tummy.

When you kids just need a little help to calm down before you lose it! yeah, sometimes I use this on me too. I roll this “Calmer” on the back of their neck and on their feet and wrist. For a soothing aroma

Do you want to know what is awesome? Almost all 5 essential oil rollerballs for kids contain only kit oils. The only exception being the Calmer Roller which has two oils, not in the kit (although one of the oils is a small sample found in the kit that you could use!) Recipe for all rollers is below the image.

So what is in each of these essential oil rollerballs for kids? The recipes I'm sharing below are for kids 2-6 in 5ml roller bottles. For dilution ratios for bigger kids download my Oil safety sheet from here with Dilution Ratios for big and small kids.

Ouchie Roller

3 drops each of Purification and Lavender. Then fill with a carrier oil. Roll over scrapes and ouchie.

Sniffles Roller

3 drops each of Lavender, Thieves, and RC. Then fill with a carrier oil. Apply to the chest.

3 drops each of Lemon, Thieves, and Peppermint. Then fill with a carrier oil. apply to forehead, pulse points and underarms.

Tummy Roller

3 drops each of Lemon and Frankincense. 1 drop Peppermint. Then fill with a carrier oil. Roll on the tummy area.

Calmer Roller

3 drops each of Lavender, Peace and Calm (a sample in your kit. this sample is about 2-3 drops) and Valor (not a kit oil). Then fill with a carrier oil. Roll this on the back of their neck and on their feet and wrist.

Check out how to get the same essential oils that I use, below.

I like to make these Rollers in the 5ml roller, mainly because that makes them small enough to fit my pockets without getting all bulky.

For the roller bottles, I suggest these-

Hello! I am new to EO, but I’m wanting to be more proactive with my family’s health. I have a question. The fever roller mentions peppermint. However, peppermint is on your guide sheet as unsafe for children. So, is it ok?


Friday 26th of January 2018

Because my girls have been around oils pretty much their whole lives and I only use peppermint on them when they are sick and at very low amounts I feel safe using it. When I use this roller I'm applying it to about the area the size of a nickel or quarter at the most. I'm not covering their little bodies. Hope this helps!

Hi, Just got a starter kit from my mom! Really excited to use your recipes for my 8 year old... wondering tho if I should lessen the drops fro my 7 month? Wanted to try out the SniffleMe! Thanks so much!

Hi Pi, I would be very cautious on using Essential Oils on children under 2. while there are lots of great oils you can use on them, Dilution is a big factor. I have a safety sheet you can download here that can help you know how many drops you can use. PDF safety sheet
