I would love it if it were easy to be productive every day. My house would be spotless, the piles of laundry would be clean and neatly folded in drawers, my girls would always have engaging and educational activities to do, I’d feed them those healthy animal-shaped snacks and lunches I see on Pinterest, and dinners would never look like hotdogs and mac n’ cheese.
While I know that will probably never happen, I also know essential oils can at least help me stay on top of a couple of those things. I made an awesome roll-on recipe using essential oils to help us work better and bring out the productive willpower I know is in there somewhere!
What I Love About the Work It Roll-On
Katie here, I’m a Certified Aromatherapist for Simply Earth. I plan our subscription recipe box. I create and test the recipes you’ll find on this blog. This recipe is included in our April Essential Oil Recipe Box.
Ever hear the phrase, work better not harder? This essential oil roll-on is designed to help you with just that.
What’s in This Roll-On
Peppermint Essential Oil
Peppermint has always been popular as a flavor enhancer in food and drinks. In Aromatherapy, Peppermint Essential Oil helps you increase focus and energy [i].
Tea Tree Essential Oil
You can get the most out of Tea Tree Essential Oil as a stimulant in aromatherapy. A good stimulant can also help boost brain functions which can make this roll-on more effective.* Tea Tree Essential Oil’s aroma blends well with Peppermint Essential Oil and Clean & Fresh Blend.
Clean and Fresh Essential Oil Blend
Clean & Fresh Essential Oil Blend gives you the boost of energy you need to clean your home naturally. It also uplifts and supports the focus you need.
Fractionated Coconut Oil
We’re using Fractionated Coconut Oil as our carrier oil. A carrier oil is an oil that will dilute the essential oil so that it’s safe to put on your skin. Essential Oils are very potent, so they shouldn’t be put on the skin by themselves.
Carrier oils in recipes are often interchangeable. In this recipe, you could also try another carrier oil.
10 mL Roll-on Bottle
A roll-on bottle has a roller top making it easy to apply an essential oil. They are also small so they are easy to take with you wherever you go. The amber color of the bottle will protect the essential oils from light, which can break down the essential oil’s properties.
