Roller balls are one of the easiest was to make up and apply oil blends. I have been using frankincense as part of my skin care routine for a few months now and definitely notice my skin being brighter and softer. I was applying it with some coconut oil but mixing it in my hand each night but it was a bit messy so I decided to make this handy little roller ball bottle.
Coconut oil can be a little heavy so I swapped it out for almond oil in my recipe and added some cedarwood to boost the skin loving magic. Each night and sometimes in the morning I roll some under my eyes, on my forehead and neck then massage in.
Frankincense can help support cellular function, so it's often used to soothe skin and reduce the appearance of blemishes. It's aromatic properties are said to promote feelings of relaxation, peace, and overall wellness. This is one clever little oil!
Cedarwood oil has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. This may make it beneficial for skin conditions like acne. One case study indicated that the addition of cedarwood oil to traditional acne treatments was helpful for alleviating and reducing stubborn breakouts. It is emotionally grounding and promotes the feelings of safety and tranquility so can help with sleep.
10 ml Roller Bottle

I usually add my essential oils first then the almond oil so there is less chance of it overflowing, shake the bottle with your finger over the end and smell test to see if you want to add more oil.
You can uses other brands of oil but you may need to increase the amount of essential oil used as cheaper brands often contain filler oils.
