It was in October 2017 when I purchased my first set of essential oils via Shopee. Prior to that, I purchased a generic ultrasonic diffuser from Lazada. Being clueless about this topic, I simply asked friends if this or that is alright before hitting the buy button. While I know there are already many resources available online, I was too lazy to read about it because I was afraid of the information overload it can cause me.
Turned out, the capacity of the diffuser I got was too big, it can be filled to run the whole day. 😅😂 Meanwhile, the oils I bought were “takal” oils. These were repacked into smaller bottles, probably meant for people like me who wants to try but is not yet ready to jump in 100%.
Months went by and I was able to fully consume my takal oils. I saw the positive effect and natural healing the oils did for our family. But I am still unwilling to purchase whole bottles for I find them quite an investment. I purchased another set of the same oils I had before. Then I discovered roller bottle blends. They’re basically the same oils you diffuse but are diluted in a carrier oil and is placed in a roller bottle so you can enjoy the benefits of essentials oils anytime, anywhere. I know, genius creation!
Since I carry the roller bottles most of the time, I easily ran out of supplies. The cost of the roller bottle blends is not cheap and there is always shipping fee. As if pushing me more into essential oils, I met another oilbularya mom. When I want to know about a certain oil, I ask her. She’s so into it that she regularly orders oils from abroad and have them shipped here. You are guessing right. I finally bought my first set of full bottle oils last November. They were my Christmas present to myself. And since then, my wish list of essential oils has been growing! Oh, not only the oils list, but the paraphernalia list is getting long too!
To date, I now have more than 15 oils in 10ml bottles. I make my own roller bottle blends now, thanks to those who share their recipes freely online. My favorites are:
- Cough and Cold Relief
- Happy Mama
- Muscle Relief
- Brain Pain Buster
- Study Buddy
- Vertigo Relief
- Silky Soft
I have influenced a few friends into using essential oils in roller bottles and they’re loving it as well! I still have a very long way to go in this journey to natural healing and I hope that in the process, our family will reap its full benefits.
