DIY CBD Essential Oil Roll On Recipe


Save money and make your own CBD roll ons with this easy recipe using CBD essential oils!

CBD essential oil roll ons are a versatile way to get the benefits of CBD and essential oils when you are at home or on the go.  They are easy to use, travel well and can perform a variety of tasks from relieving pain, promoting calm, clearing sinuses, repairing damaged skin and much, much more.  They are safer to use than essential oils directly on the skin and carry much deeper into the tissues than oils alone.  CBD infused roll ons are the newest craze due to their benefots and allow you have your CBD topicals available at all times without a jar sticking out of your pocket or filling your purse.  CBD roll ons typically have 50-250mg of hemp and can be prohibitively expensive, especially when infused with Broad or Full Spectrum hemp.  Well, now you can easily make your own at a fraction of the cost and tailor them to your own wants and desires.  You only need a few simple ingredients, an empty roller bottle and a few minutes.

CBD is expensive.  It is also not easy to properly infuse without the proper equipment.  We know, we have tried.  That’s why we made devoted entire lines of products to helping make DIY CBD crafting easier and faster than ever.   With our CBD infused carrier oils and our CBD infused essential oils, you can make low or high strength CBD roll ons, balms, bath soaks, soaps, bath bombs and much more with only a few ingredients with no need for an expensive CBD oil to infuse.  Making your own roll ons using our CBD essential oil roll on recipe is one of the easiest DIY projects you can do and can be made with 2 ingredients, or more if you want to make your own blends.  More on that later!

Which carrier oils should I use?

Carrier oils are what makes the roll on safe and easy to use on your skin.  Essential oils and CBD are fat soluble and require an oil to properly mix with.  Lucky for us, carrier oils are not only filled with fats, but also help to do the job or carrying the essential oils and cannabinoids through our skin and deep into our tissues where they can enter our bloodstream and perform their magic.  Using one oil is typical for roll ons, but if you want to get creative, you can blend different carrier oils for a wider range of skin nourishing and even reparative properties.  We have a few carrier oil blend recipes here.  Our favorite carrier oils are:

  • fractionated coconut oil (MCT oil)  FCO is a light oil that is quickly absorbed by your skin and is ultra-moisturizing – Great for dry skin!.
  • hemp seed oil – Hemp Seed Oil is another light oil that is quickly absorbed by your skin and is ultra-moisturizing and is rich with essential fatty acids and other nourishing compounds.
  • grapeseed oilGrapeseed is a light oil that is quickly absorbed by your skin and is ultra-moisturizing and contains many essential fatty acids and antioxidants that help your skin look more youthful and glow.
  • jojoba oil  – Jojoba is a light, waxy oil that is quickly absorbed by your skin and is ultra-moisturizing and helps balance oily and dry skin – great for clearing up acne and other blemishes.
  • sweet almond oil Sweet Almond Oil is a bit heaver of an oil but is still fairly quickly absorbed by your skin and is ultra-moisturizing.

Where to buy CBD essential oils

We have made an entire line of low and high strength essential oils infused with CBD for these kind of DIY projects – you cannot find these strengths or quality elsewhere!  You can always use other brands CBD essential oils, but most only have about 100mg per essential oil bottle which is too low to make your own rollers and other DIY projects.  In the evenet this what you have,  you will need to supplement the amount of CBD with a CBD Carrier Oil or CBD Tincture (OUCH!) in order to reach above 100mg per bottle – a level that is most beneficial.  Consider upgrading to our oils that are designed to be used in your own crafts giving you the power to create your own blends and home infusions.
