RENEWAL + REBIRTH ROLLERBOTTLE BLEND
WITH FREE DOWNLOADABLE LABELS
As I sit down to create this blog post it is May 2019.
We have had a cold winter and an awkward start to Spring.
A few hot sunny days creeped in after the harsh winter.
But they were quickly followed by chilling nights and rainy days.
I am not sure what it means when weather has a huge effect on a person.
But cold dark weather sends me into a mild depression.
It makes the cold winters feel even colder.
Sinking into your bones.
This year has not been any different.
But how I am coming out of this winter is.
I feel like I am a brand new person.
I am still living in the fog of it all.
Shedding our old selves is a lengthy unravelling.
But really long.
I am still trying to process my 7 year long coma (I wrote about how I started to come out of my 7 year emotional coma here).
I feel almost like a caterpillar who is starting to build a butterfly inside the cocoon.
I know I will get to this really beautiful place but there is still work to do.
So much work.
The work we have to do on ourselves in never ending and always full of lessons.
I have accepted this as my new normal.
I first created this rollerbottle blend to help lift the fog.
To help bring in a new season.
To launch myself in a new way into an old place.
This rollerbottle blend started out being called REBIRTH.
The welcoming of the butterfly.
But then a new name was born….. RENEWAL.
It feels better.
And it feels better because I know I won’t always have a rebirth phase.
This phase feels big (or big to me).
But I can at any point have a renewal phase (and so can you).
So this has evolved over the last few weeks to be a RENEWAL ROLLERBOTTLE BLEND.
But just in case you like both names, both labels are included below for you.
Here is the blend and a one liner explanation as to why I chose them.
For a deeper more dense look at the creation of this blend see the descriptions below

LABEL PRINTING INSTRUCTIONS:
Type of labels to purchase
For these labels it is best to buy the full 8.5 x 11 sheets to print your labels. I have found that there are so many labels out there so this was the only way I could figure out a solution. I am not sure how many different types of labels I purchased over time and how many were unsuccessful. Oh the wasted ink and added recycling ;-( You can buy full label sheets at any office store or online. As well, you can buy vinyl ones to help make them a more oil resistant. If you are going to purchase vinyl labels here is my suggestion: You need to look for the labels that match your printer type. For example - if you have laser jet they must be laser jet vinyl type labels- if you have ink jet - you must buy vinyl ink jet labels. One will not work with the other.
Printing & Prepping Tips
If vinyl are not an option for you then a really great way to make them water and oil resistant (as best as they can be) is to tape the entire sheet with packing tape (or even scotch tape) and then cut them out! As well, make sure you fill all of your roller bottles with the recipes before applying the label. You can wipe the bottle clean from any left over residue, dry and apply the labels. If you do the packing tape trick then when one end of the label meets the other, it has a hard time sticking together. To ensure the label sticks completely, where the ends meet, I apply a small piece of scotch tape that is the exact size of the label and width of the bottle.
Macintosh vs Personal Computer
I have a MacBook Pro so the PDF file listed here is very easy for me to maneuver. All I do is create a Pages document and pull the PDF files of the labels I want to print inside Pages and re-arrange them to maximize the sheet. The PDF files stay the size they are supposed to be and the whole thing is really seamless. I am told however that with a PC there are a few things to take note of.
If you do not have adobe or you cannot add your PDF files to your said program (word or other applications) then please use the JPEG file and insert those in your preferred program.
Happy roller bottle making ;-).
