Where is the Best Place to Apply Essential Oils: For naturally fragrant essential oils, it is best to choose a body part with a pulsating pulse, such as the neck. The pulsating parts of the pulse, wrist, and temple. These areas help promote the volatilization of essential oils and fragrances, helping to better absorb and exert their effects. In addition, the roller bottle itself can also be used for massage and soothing the skin. Roll a small amount of essential oil onto the area that needs to be massaged, and gently massage with fingertips to effectively relieve skin fatigue and tension.

How to Disassemble the Roll-on Head and Ball: Removing the ball head is usually not very difficult. Firstly, we can use the simple tools we provide to users for dismantling; Secondly, while ensuring that there is no liquid in the roll on bottle, rotate the ball head vigorously until it completely separates from the variety. Some roll on bottles have ball heads that can be removed and may require tools such as pliers or ballpoint pens. The ball of the ball head cannot be removed by hand because it is designed to be fixed in the appropriate position. Firstly, gently grip the middle of the roll on bottle with one hand and use pliers to grip the entire base of the ball head with the tip to secure it. At the same time, slowly rotate the pliers to release the base. But when it feels like it can be removed, pull up the pliers to remove the combined plastic base and ball. Finally, invert the ball head so that the ball can be seen through the base. Push the bottom surface of the ball onto a hard and flat surface (such as a flat table), and press until the ball pops out of the base. If this still doesn’t work, use the blunt end of a ballpoint pen to press the bottom of the ball until the ball pops out. (Please note: If the ball is very small, you can use an unfolded paper clip or pin to press it out; and, push the ball into the bottom of the bottle until it clicks into place to press the ball back into the ball base. If the roll on bottle is made of glass, be sure not to apply too much pressure, which may cause the glass ball to break; also, do not try to remove the ball with your teeth, as this may cause the ball to bounce into the mouth upside down and cause injury.)
