Containers

Colorful Rollers 24-pack of colorful roll-on bottles | I LOVE this pack for making sets of rollers for gifts, or to have rollers on hand as a new member gift or giveaway! It’s an amazing price and comes with so much!

Blue Rollers Glass Roll On Bottles, FROSTED Cobalt Blue-Set of 12  |  Some oils are better kept in the dark, or if you are planning to keep the roller for quite a long time this is also recommended (some rollers I use up pretty quickly!).

Amber Rollers 24-pack of amber rollers with metal top | ALWAYS use metal-top rollers! Pure quality essential oils will break down plastic roller balls.

Mini Sprayers 12 New, High Quality, 1 oz Amber Glass Bottles, with Black Fine Mist Sprayer  |  Awesome little sprayers! Great size for making skin sprays, facial toner, etc.

Oil Samplers 2 ml (5/8 dram) Amber Glass Essential Oil Bottle with Orifice Reducer and cap- 12 pack  |  Use these teeny, weeny containers for bringing small amounts of neat oils with you, or for handing out samples of oils to people in need of oily love!

Large Sprayer Two 16-oz amber glass sprayers |  A nice, big bottle – my favorite spray bottle for putting Thieves Household Cleaner to work. We have two in the kitchen and one in each bathroom. I have tried a few different sprayers and the pump on this one works the best.

Lip Balm Tubes Lip Balm Empty Container Tubes 3/16 Oz (5.5ml), Pack of 12; Natural (translucent) color  |  Making lip balm and tinted lip balm at home is way too much fun!

Glass Lotion Containers Greenwood Products Clear Glass 2oz Straight Sided Jar, with White Polypropylene PTFE Lined Cap (Case of 24)  |  I love these for putting homemade creams in.

Mini Droppers Bottles and droppers, cobalt blue  | Use for tinctures or tonics, or to add carrier oils to capsules.

Gadgets & Tools

Mini Funnels RSVP Endurance 18/8 Stainless Steel Mini Funnel, Set of 3  |  I use these for filling various small containers – I mean some of these containers have TINY openings!!

Honey Dipper Jarware Honey Dipper for Regular Mouth Mason Jars | I love this dipper for our raw honey. It makes an excellent gift along with a mason jar and a bottle of Thieves Vitality – for Thieves Bombs! (A few drops of honey + a drop of Thieves Vitality oil in the mouth – every day!)

Carrying Case Essential Oil Carrying case for 10 rollers | This is an awesome gift for yourself OR a beloved oily friend! It includes 10 roller bottles and a funnel and dropper as well! There are three color options for the carrying case.

Foil Pouch Sealable Foil Pouch, pack of 200 | An easy way to share samples of your favorite creams, lotions or oils, or make carry-along sizes for yourself when traveling.

Portable Charger Anker Power Core charger with 3 USB ports and double charging port | My FAAVORITE portable charger, awesome for convention, traveling, sitting on the couch nursing!

Molds Gummy Bear Candy Molds & Dropper | The cutest! Awesome price. And includes the dropper for easy filling!

Books and Labels

Gentle Babies Essential Oils and Natural Remedies for Pregnancy, Childbirth, Infants and Young Children  |  An absolutely necessary resource for pregnant and post-partum women and children, filled with recipes and ideas on how to use the oils before, during and after birth, and for young children.

Essential Oils Pocket Reference  |  A must-have guide that I would recommend getting as soon as you start investing in essential oils. It’s one thing to have them, and another thing to know how and when to use them – safely! This book provides scientific background, contraindications, application advice and more.

Essential Oil Truth | Non-brand-specific book that provides a detailed education in easy-to-read lessons on the production and usage of oils.

Essentially Driven | Young Living handbook – this has everything you need to know to maximize your Young Living membership.

French Aromatherapy: Essential Oil Usage & Recipes | Excellent recipes for making items at home, as well as solid information on what the oils are for and why.

Essential Oil Make & Takes: 60 DIY Recipes | Just what the title says! An awesome and fun book for DIY lovers.

Lucy Libido Says … There’s an oil for THAT! | SERIOUSLY fun adventurous book for oils all about THAT! Plenty of recipes in the back. I LOVE this book!

Lucy Libido’s Class Book | Very fun book that walks you through a Lucy Class all about hormones and oils!

Avery High Visibility 2 1/2 Inch Diameter White Labels 300 Pack (5294)  |  These labels are the perfect size for topping a wide-mouth mason jar (we use them for canning, too!), or for labeling other containers.

Avery Easy Peel Permanent Print-To-The-Edge Round Labels, Laser/InkJet, 2-Inch, Glossy White, Pack of 120 (22807)  |  These labels are suited for regular-mouth (narrow) canning jars and smaller containers.

Carrier Oils and Ingredients

Expeller-Pressed Organic Coconut Oil  |  Odorless and flavorless, this is a completely neutral oil that I use in my lotions, whips and salves. It stays in a solid state unless warmed, and is edible and thoroughly nutritious! I also use it for everything else in my kitchen!

Earth’s Essentials 100% Pure Organic Sweet Almond Oil-16 Oz. Bottle  |  Sweet almond oil is one of the primary ingredients in many base lotions, and since it is liquid it can be used to put oils in roller bottles, too.

Zinc Oxide Powder – 1 lb. in Quality Heat Sealed Resealable Zip Lock Pouch  |  Zinc oxide powder of the non-nano variety (cannot be absorbed into skin), is a must for outdoor skin creams!  The more you add, the higher the SPF rating – but if you add too much, you’ll end up looking quite ghostly white!

Fractionated Coconut Oil Pure Organic Raw by Dr.Adorable 12oz pack of 2  |  This is THE most popular carrier oil for essential oilers. I love the price on this set.

Fractionated Coconut Oil + Pump | I love that this organic oil includes a pump for the bottle.

Magnesium Bath Flakes | For making homemade bath blends and soaks. A great fitness and detoxing aid.

Magnesium Oil | Incredible for relaxation. Add it to night time rollers or sleepy cream.
