Do you find yourself in need of a little R&R but have no time to hit the spa? Don’t worry, this essential oil roll-on recipe has your back!
Not everyone has a day (or half a day) to spare for rest and relaxation. Duties and responsibilities are calling left and right. BUT, we must not forget to rest. Like our obligations, they deserve time in our day. The answer for this dilemma: an on-the-go aromatherapy roll-on that provides relaxation!
Our newest recipe, Moon and Back Essential Oil Roll-On will help you relax naturally so you won’t be too overwhelmed with all those tasks at hand. An easy and convenient break that is much needed and definitely well-deserved!
What I Love About This Moon and Back Roll-On Recipe
I love how I do not have to take so much of my time to recharge if I have a full day. Moon and Back Roll-On has a wonderful aroma that is very calming and soothing. It’s an instant R&R anywhere, anytime!
What’s in This Moon and Back Roll-On Recipe
Sleepy Essential Oil Blend
Contrary to its name, Sleepy Essential Oil Blend is not only for sleep. It is also a wonderful blend in soothing stress1. Infused with Bergamot, Grapefruit, Lavender, and Ho Wood Essential Oils, it has chemical properties to provide that sense of calm amidst a hectic day.
Copaiba Essential Oil
The rich, pleasant honey-like aroma of Copaiba Essential Oil provides a calming cooldown. It also minimizes feelings of nervousness, worry, sadness, and discouragement. Not only will you feel more relaxed, but you’ll also be happy and invigorated.
Fractionated Coconut Oil
We love using Fractionated Coconut Oil as a carrier oil (especially for roll-on blends) because of its colorless and odorless nature. It preserves the original fragrance of the essential oils while also doing its job in diluting it to make it safe for topical use.
Things to Remember When Using This Roll-On
Always dilute an essential oil when using it on the skin. Check out this dilution chart for diluting this essential oil properly.
This roll-on is generally safe to use if you are pregnant. We do recommend lowering the dilution rate to 1% (2 drops) if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Consult your doctor prior to use.
