Wintertime means falling snow, crackling fires, and warm mittens. Unfortunately it also means runny noses, seasonal blues, and that phenomenon that makes you just not wanna get out of bed in the morning. Here are three of my favorite winter roll-ons to help me deal with the setbacks of winter.

General Instructions

  1. Combine essential oils listed in a 10 mL roll-on bottle. My absolute faves for winter are the twinkle trio from Whimsy and Wellness.
  2. Add crystals to your rollers for an enhanced effect.
  3. Top off with a neutral carrier oil, such as sweet almond oil or fractionated coconut oil.
  4. Roll on throughout the day as needed.

Immune Support

Keep your immune system strong to avoid winter illness.

  • 5 drops Thieves
  • 5 drops tea tree 
  • 4 drops lemon 
  • 3 drops oregano 
  • 3 drops frankincense 
  • Pyrite or sodalite stones

Sunshine in a Bottle

Fewer hours of sunlight and cold weather keeps us indoors more in the winter. This can lead to decreased energy and vigor. Beat the winter blues with this uplifting blend.

  • 8 drops lemon
  • 3 drops ylang ylang or vetiver
  • 8 drops lavender
  • 4 drops orange
  • Amber or purple tourmaline stones

Wake the Bear

When you are warm and cozy under your blankets, the struggle of getting out of bed in the winter is real. If you need a little hibernation prevention, try this blend for a quick perk up.

  • 8 drops bergamot
  • 7 drops peppermint 
  • 3 drops cypress
  • 3 drops cinnamon
  • Garnet or malachite stones
