I love the way essential oils support my emotions. Sometimes we need a little extra boost in the self confidence department. There are many essential oils that promote feelings of confidence and a positive outlook. I created this Liquid Courage Roll-On for those times when I just need a little more bravery.

Liquid Courage Roll-On Recipe

The essential oils in this blend work together to calm nerves and promote a sense of courage. Bergamot is noted for relieving anxious feelings. Basil helps with mental fatigue and encourages clarity, while frankincense improves attitude and is uplifting. Ylang ylang further improves mood, increases focus and combats low self esteem.


3 drops basil essential oil

5 drops bergamot essential oil

4 drops frankincense essential oil

2 drops ylang ylang essential oil


Combine essential oils in a 10 mL roll-on bottle and bring up to volume with fractionated coconut oil.

Bergamot essential oil can cause photosensitivity, so you should avoid applying it just before going out in the sun. You may also choose to use a patch test just to make sure the oil is comfortable on the skin.
