Essential oils are long believed to be some of the best cures for ailments, from sore muscles to headaches to nausea and just about anything in between. Roller bottles have become the preferred way to apply essential oils because they allow the right amount of oil to be applied to just the right area without any extra mess and are easy to mix into carrier oils. Here are some we recommend.

Purchasing Essential Oil Roller Bottles

What makes essential oil roller bottles so great? There are a few key things you can check for to make sure you’re getting the best roller bottle out there:

  • Material: Tinted glass (blue or amber) is generally the preferred bottle material, but some are made of plastic or stainless steel. Stainless steel or gemstones are the most preferred material for the roller.
  • Inner Additionals: Some roller bottles come with crystals inside to mix with your oil for added health benefits such as easing anxiety. They also help make sure your oils don’t separate.
  • Size: Depending on how much you plan to use your roller bottles or choose to travel with them, the size can be important.
  • UVA/UVB Protection: Ensure the roller offers both UVA and UVB protection so that no sunlight can damage your essential oils.
  • Bulk: Plan on using a lot of different oils for different remedies? Then perhaps you should get a larger quantity of bottles.
