Roll on essential oils are all the rage recently, and for good reason. Compact, flexible, and easy to apply, there's no need to wonder why the aromatherapy roller ball has become such a craze among lovers of wellness.

What is an aromatherapy roll on?

Aromatherapy roll ons - also known as roll on perfumes or roll on essential oils - are portable products that combine essential oils with carrier oils for safe on-to-go application.

Usual roller sizes will be around 10ml with an attached roller ball and removable cap. They will also feature a skin-loving base like coconut oil, as well as useful essential oils for sleep, relaxation, or energy.

Rollerballs can target a number of therapeutic benefits and may also feature essential oil blends to help tackle numerous ailments at once.

What kind of aromatherapy roller balls are available?

There are tons of essential oil rollerballs to choose from, and each serve great individual purposes for your routine. Here are some of our favourites:

  • Anti-Anxiety Roll On - as the name suggests, this blend is great for targeting symptoms of anxiety and facilitating relaxation wherever you are.
  • Relax & Unwind Roll On - after a long day, this roller ball is will come in handy for forgetting about the tense moments and easing into your evening.
  • Refresh & Focus Roll On - before a big exam or a major presentation, a swift application of this roller blend will re-target your concentration in no time.
  • Lavender Roll On - lavender is famous for aiding sleep, so gently swiping it on your body before bed is ideal for sweeter dreams.
  • Clary Sage Roll On - known as the "woman's oil", clary sage can quickly banish mood swings and help with hormone headaches.
  • Eucalyptus Roll On - if you feel a cold coming on, swipe some eucalyptus across your wrists to say goodbye to symptoms for good.
  • Tea Tree Roll On - tea tree oil is coined as the "medicine cabinet in a bottle", so there's truly no end to the possibilities of this herbal remedy.
