7 essential oil roller ball recipes for kids
Have you ever had an incident in your home that caused you to rush out to the drug store in the middle of the night for your child?

Maybe she woke up with a stuffy nose or maybe she came down with a stomach ache.

You can’t ever predict what might happen, but you can be prepared. Being prepared with these essential oil rollerball recipes will give you the confidence you need to tackle these little incidences with confidence.

Even better? Creating a product to use yourself for your kids that is all natural and safe.

Essential oil rollerball recipes are so great because they are already diluted and ready to use. This makes them quick and easy to apply.

I want to share 7 of the best essential oil rollerball recipes that I know of for kids.

So you can be sure to be prepared for anything that comes your way!

These recipes are written for 1% dilution, which is safe for children ages 6 and older. In order to get the correct dilution, each recipe will make more than one rollerball bottle full of blend.

That’s no problem though… it just means you’ll have some to share with friends!

  1. So when you say a recipe makes 6 5 ml am I dividing this recipe between 6 and then do I add more fractionated coconut oil to fill the roller?

  2. How could you make these for younger kids? I have a 2 and a 3 year old.

  3. for Peppermint. if my baby is less than 10 years old, then i just dont put it? or i cant make the blend?

  4. Stuffy Noses (makes 3 5ml rollerballs)
    1 drop Lavender essential oil
    1 drop Lemon essential oil
    1 drop Peppermint essential oil (over 10yrs of age)
    1 Tbsp fractionated coconut oil or sweet almond oil

    how would you make one 10ml bottle? 1/2 drops would be impossible

    • You can’t, with correct and safe dilution. That’s why the recipe is for 15ml. You could make 15ml and throw away what doesn’t fit in the bottle, or just make more than one bottle out of it and give one to a friend.

  5. Nice compilation. Thanks for sharing on the #HomeMattersParty.

  6. I’I’m just now getting into esstential oils and I’m definitely going to make this blend! Thanksm

  7. I love these. I use EO a lot but never thought to make roller balls with them.

  8. These are great recipes! I love learning more about the amazing uses for essential oils!

  9. Thank you! As someone who’s been dabbling in oils, but still learning, this is much appreciated!

  10. This is one of THE BEST essential oils posts I’ve seen in a LONG time!!! Thank you so much for sharing this… I’m always wondering the best way to use essential oils on my little kiddo, and this post covered it all! So many great recipes; I can’t wait to try them all!

  11. I use oils all the time on my family. They have been a huge help, they work on everything from bruises to ringworm to fevers to motion sickness. Fantastic. I feel so much better giving my family oils than medications wherever possible and practical. Thanks for the recipes – I see a few new ones I will be adding to my collection. Also – have you tried edens garden oils? We seem to like them better over the now brand. Personal preference I am sure, but good to know that there are other options out there than the ridiculously priced YL and Doterra brands…..

    • Thanks for the comment, Nik! I have used a couple of eden’s garden, and I like them too… I also use Now and Plant Therapy, and I have a couple of doTerra blends… I’m so NOT brand loyal when it comes to oils. haha.
