My doorman will be ringing in the New Year smelling amazing with the Gotham roll-on I made for him. You can make these as easy and thoughtful gifts for the men in your life too! So grab a roller bottle, some fractionated coconut oil, these essential oils listed below and let’s get to work!


10 drops Idaho grand fir essential oil

5 drops sacred frankincense essential oil

5 drops sacred sandalwood essential oil

2 drops bergamot essential oil

Fractionated coconut oil

10 mL roller bottle


  1. In a 10 mL roller bottle, combine all essential oils.
  2. Carefully top off with fractionated coconut oil.

I find that this becomes more masculine-smelling after it sits for a few days and the bergamot aroma mellows somewhat.

Can’t Get Enough of the Gotham Roll-On?
