So there's your short guide to just a few of the more popular oils and their uses. There are so many more of course and the uses and benefits are endless.

Frankincense oil

Frankincense oil is widely known in some religious rituals. It's also widely used in Chinese medicine as well The Egyptians cleansed body cavities in the mummification process

It is used to relieve pain, remove blood stasis, promote blood circulation and treat deafness, stroke, locked jaw, and abnormalities in women's menstruation.

If you are new to essential oils please consult your doctor or an herbalists.

Now lets get into it. Let's start off with what you'll need.

1. Roll on bottle

( you can find these on amazon)

2. Essential oil of your choice

3. Small mini funnels (prevent spillage)

4. Crystal chips ( optional, adds nice decorative touch)

5 Base oil ( coconut, grapeseed, almond)

Now for the fun. Let's assemble these babies:

If your going to add the crystal chips it's better if you do this first. I normally take a small spoon and scoop some into my hand and pour them in tweezers will also just whatever your preference is.. I normally fill the bottle close to the top without over filling it.

Next I like to add whatever base oil, filling the bottle about half way. Then whatever oil(s) I picked I just sort of eyeball it till it's close to the top again without over filling. once that's done you can now put the roller in the bottle then place the cap on it and give a few turns to allow every thing to mix together. You don't really want to shake it per say.

Then there you have it your own essential roll on bottle. I usually like to let it set for at least a couple of hours before using and if I'm going to take it with me I like to have a little pouch to keep it in.
