Anyone besides me tend to have a bad day from time to time? I used to just want to be left alone so I could deal with it in my own time, but that’s not really how adult life works. So since my husband and I both work from home and I homeschool the kids, being left alone doesn’t happen too often, but I still need to get out of my grumpiness.
Enter essential oils. *cue the angelic choir*
Happiness Roller Blends for the Entire Family
There are numerous studies that have been done on how essential oils can affect our moods in a very positive way. They do this by interacting with our olfactory nerves which communicate directly with our brains, telling us to snap out of it and be happy. Can I get an amen?
But, it’s not just women (or moms) that need a mood adjustment from time to time. Thankfully, essential oils can work on all of us. The easiest way to make that happen for anyone in the family at any time is to make different batches of roller ball blends that meet the needs of all of us.
Our favorite roller bottles (like the ones above) can be found here. They come in a 6 pack made from durable colored glass and also include the chalkboard labels you see in the image above.
UPDATE: These are currently out of stock, but you can still get our other favorite roller bottles here. Be sure to add a label since they aren’t colored glass. We really like these waterproof oil labels here.
Roller blend recipes are amazingly easy as all you need are essential oils and a carrier oil. We prefer fractionated coconut oil as it’s not sticky and has low to no odor so that the essential oils aroma can be the star.
Color code the roller bottles for different family members, wrap them up and place them in stockings for a Christmas present! My family, especially the kids, love having their very own blends of oils. I think it makes the roller bottles more special and personal.
Happiness Blends For Her
For females of all ages, we have our 6 Cheerful Roller Blend recipes with one of my favorites being a simple blend of Lavender and Lemon essential oils. But, some days, Tangerine and Hinoki are my go-to blend. My daughter adores the Grapefruit and Geranium combination shown above. Be sure to check all of them out here!
But what about the males in the family?
I know my boys (husband and son) would prefer a little less froufrou smells, so I had Beth do a little experimenting to find some more manly scents that still invoke the feelings of happiness for the menfolk. And, here’s what we came up with…and it’s amazing! It smells so good. My boys gave it a thumbs up. I hope yours will too!
