Easy DIY recipe for everyday on the go pick my head up roller

Sharing is caring!

If you are 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 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!

In this post, I'm going to share my DIY “pick my head up” roller. Cause you know we all have those days.

Peppermint, Panaway and lavender essential oil bottles stand next to a clear glass roller bottle. In the background a row of premium starter kit oils, dropper bottle and diffuser.


This is an easy, two-step, all natural DIY recipe for an on the go pick-me-up roller.

All you need is the following oils




Plus your favorite Carrier oil. I like Grapeseed because it absorbs quickly and doesn't leave a greasy feel.

Keep this roller on hand for a refreshing, cool and relaxing sensation for your head and neck.

I like to use it when that thump, thump sensation likes to start in my brain or when I feel like a quiet dark cave might be the best place for me to live out my day.

Never made an Essential Oil Roller?

Check out this super short video where I show you how I make my favorite roller called the Daily Roller. (you can find the post about it HERE) Bonus to watching this video? You get to see the quirky fun side of me 🙂 

The Recipe for this post is below this video.

Essential Oil Roller bottle recipe

1- First step, add the 5 drops of Peppermint, 5 drops Panaway and 5 drops Lavender essential oils to the bottle

2- Then add your carrier oil to just below the neck of the bottle

finally, add the cap and lightly mix oils by rotating bottle.

And you're Done!

My suggestion is to make a bunch of these. Stash them all over your house, your car, your work and while you are at it, add one or two to your purse. You can never have too many.

Plus you can always share you oily bottle with a friend in need! They will love you for it!

This more a question then a comment. Where do you recommend we apply this? I love my oils and I have only been using them for just over a month.


Saturday 9th of March 2019

I apply right at my hairline and base of my neck. being careful to stay away from my eyes.

Hi ruth. If I have BP problem and taking maintenance, can I still use peppermint oil? Or is there any replacement?


Tuesday 10th of October 2017

Hi Ruth! I so wish I could answer your question but I'm not a medical dr and due to FDA compliance I can't offer advice in a public forum. Are you using YL oils? I ask because I can point you to specific reference manuals if so.


Wednesday 24th of May 2017

Hello Ruth< Is it ok to double the amount of drops of each oil when you use the 10 ml bottle?


Thursday 25th of May 2017

Hey Allyson, if the roller is for an adult then yes, doubling it would be okay.
