This pollen punch essential roll on recipe is a great natural remedy for those seasonal allergy symptoms. Make your own and keep it handy!
Well, it’s that time again! I have to admit that I feel like a dummy for not thinking about it sooner. The cause of all of our problems lately. The head…the throat…the eyes.
It’s pollen season. At least, here in Texas it is.
Pollen season used to be a lot worse for us, but as we’ve transitioned into a holistic lifestyle, we usually don’t notice it. Unfortunately, we’ve noticed it this year, and it’s time to do something about it.
If you also struggle during the spring, this quick and simple essential oil DIY is for you, too!
DIY Pollen Punch Roller Recipe

- 1 10 ml glass roller bottle (I buy these on Amazon, but whatever you get, just make sure they have a metal ball)
- Young Living V-6 oil or fractionated coconut oil
- Essential Oils: Lavender, Lemon, Peppermint & Copaiba
To make your roller, add 5 drops of each oil to your bottle and top it with your carrier oil of choice. Insert the roller filament on the top of the roller bottle and secure it by screwing the cap on all the way.
Make yourself a pretty label, using either washi tape or your silhouette machine, and that’s it! My family is honestly not too fancy with our bottles. We usually just use a sharpie and some washi tape and it gets the job done!
I apply our roller behind our ears and down the back of our necks every day at least twice during the spring. It really helps us breathe easy while spending time outdoors.
A Note on Essential Oils
When you’re just getting started with essential oils, it’s tempting to go with the cheapest oils you can find to make sure they work. I get it. I’ve been there. Unfortunately, this is a bad idea for several reasons. 1) Most of the cheap oils you can find are actually “fragrance” oils, and not true essential oils. This means they don’t have any therapeutic qualities. They just smell good. and 2) Many cheap oils you can find in the stores have been adulterated to make a more cost-effective (but less pure and safe) product.
For years, I supported Young Living as a company, and still think they have some great products. Still, I got tired of the unsafe advice and the overpriced products, so I searched until I discovered Plant Therapy. They’re an amazing quality and a company who’s true mission is to educate and share essential oils. And while I don’t think that price should be the only factor, if I can find the same quality for much less, I won’t complain! If you’re looking for a trustworthy brand, check them out and see for yourself!
