Ah, love. L’amour. Love is patient, love is kind. Love has many definitions, and is a gift to those on whom it is lavished. During this pink- and red- tinted month that pays annual homage to Valentine, an actual man who gave his life for the cause of love in the days of the Roman Empire, there are a few different camps people fall into. There are new lovebirds; committed lovebirds whose relationships have stood the test of time; lonely birds; angry birds; and birds who prefer to spend the holiday in carefree enjoyment with their friends. Whichever nest you find yourself in this year, today’s project is one you can easily get into and create a meaningful gift for someone you love!
From cheerful and floral to alluring and intense, we’re about to roll out a fine selection of roller bottle recipes to celebrate those soft, strong feelings that characterize love. Here are some of the dōTERRA® oils you’ll want access to: Ylang Ylang, Bergamot, Lime, Jasmine, Sandalwood, Wild Orange, and Melissa. Picking up on the aromatic profiles of these particular oils, use your imagination to make substitutions as needed or make some alluring additions of your own. You’ll also need a stash of 10 mL roller bottles as well as your Fractionated Coconut Oil. Ready? Let’s roll.
We begin with a cheerful perfume blend Sweet Romance. You’ll need:
5 drops Ylang Ylang
4 drops Bergamot
2 drops Lime
10 mL roller bottle
Fractionated Coconut Oil
Roller bottle labels, if desired
First add essential oils to roller bottle, then fill to the top with Fractionated Coconut Oil or other carrier oil of choice. Affix creative or personalized label, if desired. You take it from here: wear this blend for your sweetheart, or give it to your sweetheart, your best friend, your mom … the list goes on.
Enjoy wearing this elevating, relaxing blend, and if you’re single, have a blast making this recipe as you dream of your ideal future sweetheart! Why not make a list of must-have qualities while you’re at it? (And don’t let the cultural pressure get to you - you don’t have to settle; hold out for the right person!) Now, using the basic procedure and recipe above, let’s swap out some of the essential oils to give you a couple of alternate recipe ideas:
- To blend up a spicy, attractive roll-on called Tender Embrace, combine 4 drops Jasmine Touch, 3 drops Sandalwood, 2 drops Ylang Ylang, and 2 drops Bergamot using procedure above.
- To concoct a springy, playful Flirty and Fun roll-on, use 3 drops Bergamot, 3 drops Ylang Ylang, 2 drops Wild Orange, 1 drop Melissa, and 1 drop Lemon following the steps above. Notice how dōTERRA Melissa adds a powerful calming component to this friendly, mood-boosting recipe!
If only getting someone to fall in love was just as easy as rolling on the right romantic oil recipe, right? But since it’s not, at least you’ve got three emotionally balancing and rejuvenating blend recipes to get started on. Infinite possibilities await as you get busy creating personalized roll-ons that your loved ones will cherish as gifts from someone they hold dear: you.
