Don’t you just love it when you see something cute and you’re like “oh I can make that!”? Beautifully labelled essential oil roller bottles have been popping up all over Etsy and Instagram and they just add that little extra touch of cuteness to your bottles. I figured that since I have a Silhouette Cameo I could make essential oil roller bottle labels myself and it turns out it’s super easy!

I’ve made several essential oil roller bottle labels for various things. The most recent ones I made were rollers of rose oil for a giveaway for my oils team so of course I had to go with gorgeous pink rollers!Labor blend
What you need
- roller bottles – you can get these a lot of places but I typically order from Amazon. These are the pink ones pictured in this tutorial, These are the green-lidded ones pictured above, and these are great too. I always look for roller bottles with a stainless roller ball since those are better quality and less likely to break down than a plastic roller ball would be.
- A vinyl cutting machine – I have a Silhouette Cameo that I LOVE.
- Vinyl – This is a really good brand; I have been using some that I bought from Hobby Lobby and I DON’T recommend it – it is very hard to get it to stick, I’ll be buying the Oracle brand to use from here on out. So far the only color I’ve used is white but you could definitely do other colors and they even have glitter vinyl that is super pretty and fancy!
- Transfer paper – I’ve just been using the Cricut brand from Hobby Lobby and it has worked fine but this one is the #1 best seller on Amazon
What you do
Using your Silhouette software type the word(s) you want to use. Standard roller bottles are about 2.25 inches long (the bottle part, not including the lid) so you’ll need to keep the width of your word about 2 inches or less. Thankfully the Silhouette software makes it really easy to see the sizing.
If you use a script font make sure you weld it together so that it cuts seamlessly.“Weed” your design after you cut it (remove the vinyl from the outside of the word and the middle of the letters)Place transfer paper on top of the vinyl letteringRemove the backing from the vinyl so that only the word is left on the transfer paperStick the vinyl and transfer paper to the bottle. Rub it really well (some people use a flat edge like a credit card to rub it on) and then carefully peel the transfer paper off to leave the vinyl behind.And now your bottle is labelled!
