Three Essential Oil Roll-Ons
Over the weekend, the Partner in Lyme team watched the documentary Under Our Skin, which detailed the journey of many patients seeking recovery from Lyme, the doctors that treat them, and the various political and economic factors that impact what healthcare looks like. I found the film to be particularly interesting because while all of the patients had really different symptoms and experiences, they were connected by the diagnosis of Lyme Disease.
If you are checking out this blog, it is probably no secret to you that Lyme comes with a diverse variety of symptoms and it takes a lot to manage all those symptoms on a day to day basis. There are a lot of different tools available for managing symptoms, and one option is using essential oils! What makes using essential oils so great for Lyme patients is that they provide a natural alternative and can support the body while you are taking medications, feeling aches and pains, or just when you need a little extra OOMPH!
One of my favorite ways to use essential oils is in handmade roll-on blends. Roller bottles are a convenient way to use multiple oils at the same time and make for easy on the go application! Today, we are going to share 3 essential oil roller bottle combos that you can use to support symptoms commonly associated with Lyme and other chronic illnesses.
How to Make a Roller Bottle Blend
First things first, you’ll need to acquire a 10mL dark colored glass bottle with a roller top. Add in the designated amount of essential oils and then top it off with a carrier oil of your choosing. My go-to carrier oil is always coconut oil, but grapeseed, sweet almond, and avocado oil are all great options. Pop the roller ball on and then you are good to go!
