Stress is a daily reality for many people.
Carrying a Roll-On for stress relief is one of the best ways to use soothing essential oils anytime, anywhere. You can apply oils as needed and keep your nervous system relaxed during your day.
The essential oils in Roll-On for stress relief are full of natural ingredients that can bring more calm into your days, such as Linalool And the Linyl acetate.
Linalool and linalyl acetate
These two components have been well researched.
They are the two main ingredients in lavender essential oil, and we have countless studies showing their relaxing effect on the nervous system. Individually, both Linalool and Linalil Acetate have their own soothing benefits. And when they appear side by side, they work together to bring out each other’s best qualities.
We call this “synergy”.

Lavender made the most popular essential oil
In the world for anxiety, stress relief and relaxation!
Lavender is one of the main ingredients of the day.
I mix it with three other oils that support their soothing effects. You will learn more about these following the recipe!
Roll-on Smoky Lavender to relieve stress
- 10 ml jojoba oil (Simmondsia chinensis)
- 3 drops of lavender essential oil (Lavandula angustifolia)
- 2 drops of vetiver essential oil (Viteveria xizanoids)
- One drop of catnip essential oil (Nepita Kataria)
- One drop of Palo Santo Essential Oil (Borsera Cemetery)
Make this mixture in a 10ml glass bottle.
Pour the jojoba into the bottle, add the essential oils, and put the rollerball in place. Roll the mixture between your palms to mix, and apply as needed. This recipe smells great – floral and smoky with earthy base notes – so you might want to use it as a stress-calming fragrance!
About other essential oils in roll-on to relieve stress
Vetiver essential oil
Vetiver oil is so relaxing that it is sometimes called a “calm oil.”
It is full of so called heavy particles SesquiterpenolWhich is known to release tension from the body. If you’ve ever tried a comfort wave that can wash you down when covered in a heavy, warm blanket, you can get an idea of how sesquiterpenols can help you relax.
Vetiver has a sweet, smoky, and base scent. The scent of vetiver is so beautiful that some even use it as a fragrance on their own!
Catnip essential oil
Yes – catnip oil!
This plant that is very popular among our feline friends also has benefits for us humans! First of all, it has a beautiful sweet, green and pink aroma.
Second, it contains catnip Nibitalactone, Which is responsible for its stress-relieving properties. Catnip can help relieve cramping muscle pain, especially those that may store long-term pressure after a series of tough days. (Neck and shoulder massage, anyone?)
Palo Santo essential oil
Palo Santo contains DrLimonene It is also found in citrus oils.
While Palo Santo does not smell like a light and airy citrus scent (it has a rich, smoky scent and a medium base), research Dr-Limonene tells us we can use it for many of the same reasons: to improve mood, relieve anxiety, and release chronic sadness. (DrLimonene Supports Immunity, Too! Learn how here.)
Perhaps it was these influences that helped Palo Santo earn its name among the indigenous people of Ecuador. They call it “the sacred wood” and use it in rituals and meditations, valuing its ability to focus the mind and enhance spiritual awareness.
Hope you get compliments on your new Smoky Lavender Stress Relief Roll-On! The smell is really intoxicating.
