DIY Lime & Eucalyptus Roll-On with Benefits

Winter, where we live, means snow and cold. It can be pretty magical, but it can also be pretty dreadful.

During the winter, it’s hard to find the energy that naturally comes with the warmer temperatures and colors of the other seasons. 

We live by Lake Michigan and during the winter, that means a whole lot of clouds and snow. On the Michigan side of the lake, residents can go months without seeing the sun. 

This Lime and Eucalyptus Roll-On recipe is a top-notch way to energize and refresh you to get through the winter blues.

Lime & Eucalyptus

Lime Essential Oil

Lime Essential Oil is energizing. It has an uplifting aroma that reminds me of sweet candy. It also helps clear your sinuses and prevents sinus infections.*

Eucalyptus Essential Oil

Eucalyptus Essential Oil is also energizing and a good natural decongestant.* When you’re feeling down from a cold or struggling with focus, this oil will help wake up and take on your day. 

Fractionated Coconut Oil

Fractionated Coconut Oil is a carrier oil used to dilute the potent essential oils in this recipe. Carrier oils are often interchangeable, so you can use other oils such as almond oil, avocado oil, or jojoba oil to add into this recipe.

10 ml Roll-On Bottle

10 ml Roll-on bottle – a roll-on is a handy way to use an essential oil on the go. Whenever you’re using an essential oil on your skin, it should be diluted with a carrier oil first.
