Natural Living Tips: Essential Oils 1 - Body Sprays and Roller Bottles
by Joanne Troppello
I love using essential oils. They are beneficial in improving your mood when you use lemon or orange essential oil in a diffuser, as a body spray, or in a roller bottle. Lavender, patchouli, and clove essential oils are beneficial separately or together as a great combination to diffuse at night to help you fall asleep more quickly and sleep better.
I use essential oils to make natural body sprays. You add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to a small spray bottle (I like using glass ones), ¾ bottle full of water, and ¼ of the bottle filled with witch hazel—which is a natural astringent.
I make roller bottles with a few drops of essential oils and the rest is filled with a carrier oil like grapeseed oil. Other carrier oils are olive oil, avocado oil, coconut oil, jojoba oil, and almond oil.
I made a video sharing how I made these body sprays and roller bottles and shared a bunch of photos depicting the process.

I love lavender to diffuse at night and lemon or orange to diffuse during the day. I use peppermint oil when I have headaches.
Do you use essential oils? Which is your favorite oil?
