Roller bottle plastic and/or nickel leeching into EOs?

I just received in the mail a pack of Roller bottles. I was going to put fractionated coconut oil and EOs in it. The package came with a note that included the following:

"Long-term use of essential oils can slightly corrode the roller bottle plastic insert. So we suggest you replace the stainless steel roller balls monthly."

The bottle is glass. The cap that holds the steel roller ball is plastic. Here I was thinking that I could make a "natural" product, and then it dawns on me plastic may be leeching into the product, and onto peoples' skin.

Also, I read that stainless steel can have anywhere from no nickel to a lot of nickel, depending on the type of stainless steel. I wonder if that can leach into the product as well?

Any thoughts on this? Maybe the best thing would be for someone to suggest a different type of container I could use for my product that bypasses all these concerns?
