Everywhere you look these days, people are talking about all the benefits of essential oils — certain oils can provide relaxation, while others can help clear up a stuffy nose. One of the most common ways of using essential oils is to create a blend and apply them with a roll top glass bottle. These bottles can be tucked away in your purse and used whenever you are in need. The roll top bottles are a perfect surface for altering, too.
While these blends are great to create for yourself, they also make an easy, yet meaningful gift. What better way to tell a friend you’re thinking of them than to create an essential oil mixture especially for them? A simple Internet search will yield numerous blends with a number of benefits. Soon you’ll find yourself mixing up some batches to gift everyone you know!
Begin by finding an essential oil blend that meets your needs. Fill bottle with the blend and replace roll top and lid. Wipe bottle with rubbing alcohol to remove any oil residue.
Apply rub-ons carefully to the bottle, ensuring the rub-on is completely adhered. Apply a sealant, if desired.
Wrap lid with hand-dyed ribbon and give to someone who could use a little bit of kindness.
