Christmas is on it’s way and it’s the season of giving. If you are like me I want to gift things that are heart-felt, special and a little unique. If I am doing oily DIY I also want it to to be easy enough for the kids to be involved in. Oh and they have to be reasonable in price too!

Tall order? Not really…!

How about Glitter Unicorn roller blends? Or Dinosaur Crystal Blue roller ball blends? Easy, reasonable and totally unique!

To make these you will need:

  1. Empty glass roller balls. I like the clear glass ones so you can see the glitter/ crystals.
  2. Chips of crystals. I used malachite as it’s green and “dinosaury”. Chose any you like.
  3. Bio-glitter which is biodegradable glitter. Earth friendly.
  4. Natural food colouring (optional- a brand called Hopper is great)
  5. Carrier oil. I use dōTERRA’s Fractionated coconut oil, you could use any good quality oil like almond oil instead.
  6. dōTERRA Essential oils- they need to be pure and safe so use the best! Go here for your own oils.
  7. Stickers! Try the $2 store or Whitcouls or any place you can buy stationary.

Unicorn Glitter Roller Ball Blend

  1. Add a pinch of glitter to the roller ball. There is no mess free way to do this!
  2. Add your essential oils of choice: I used 3 drops each of Bergamot, Elevation and Grapefruit. This is floral and uplifting.
  3. Fill the roller up with carrier oil and put the roller lid on tight.
  4. Wipe the sides of the roller ball with white vinegar or Lemon oil to get rid of any oiliness.
  5. Stick stickers on the sides of the roller ball.

Note: The glitter tends to stay in the roller ball. You will get a little amount on the skin when you use the roller but not much. The sparkle is more for the look of the blend!

Dinosaur Crystal Blue Roller Ball Blend

  1. Add a a few crystal chips to the roller ball. I used about 5 chips.
  2. Add your essential oils of choice: I used 4 drops each of Patchouli and 5 drops of Peppermint. This is a yummy non-floral smell which is calming and grounding.
  3. Add a few drops of natural food colouring.
  4. Fill the roller up with carrier oil and put the roller lid on tight.
  5. Wipe the sides of the roller ball with white vinegar or Lemon oil to get rid of any oiliness.
  6. Stick stickers on the sides of the roller ball.

Note: The crystal chips stay inside the roller ball. The food colouring will come out in little patches within the oil so if this is an issue and you are worried about it marking, I recommend you leave it out. Also the food colouring does not mix with the carrier oil- think lava lamp!

That’s it! Super easy and feel free to make up your own blends if you don’t have the oils I mentioned above. With small people, the main thing is that the more sparkles, stickers, crystals and colour you can jam on and in your roller ball, the more awesome the roller ball blend will be!!

Other suggestions are: Wild Orange and Balance, Lemon & Peppermint, Lime, Wild Orange & Grapefruit, Easy Air & Balance and Elevation & Lavender.
