We purchased these semi-precious stone rollerballs as a more "natural" alternative to our stainless steel rollers. Many cultures, past and present, have used semi-precious stones for their purported healing and other metaphysical properties. Below is their traditional meanings and uses. They make for a beautiful and intriguing essential oil rollerball!
How to Use:
Remove rollerball top
Mix one of our pure essential oils / blends with a carrier oil (typically a 2.5% to 5% dilution but depends on the specific oil)
Roll on pulse points, wrists, temples as needed
Be careful using photo-toxic oils such as citrus or cinnamon on the skin
