Storing your essential oils is an important aspect of using the oils.  The time, energy, man-hours from the farmers and distillers and the care and time it takes to properly test, bottle, package and get these precious oils to you is invaluable.  Preserve your investment by storing correctly.

Bottles, made of glass in various sizes and shapes, are the best means to store your precious essential oils. Let’s explore how:

Essential oil bottles are not similar to other oil bottles. Essential oil is costly and needs to be stored with utmost care. To save essential oil from deteriorating and to retain its aromatic properties, they should ideally be kept in either amber or cobalt blue bottles. These are particularly used to keep essential oils because of the dark glass that stops sunlight from penetrating. Glass amber and glass cobalt blue bottles are commonly used to store essential oils. Cobalt blue bottles are a tad more expensive than amber colored bottle, but they are very pretty. Don’t go for clear glass bottles when you are searching for essential oil storage solutions. You may find some brands selling essential oil in aluminum bottles; they are also suitable if the interior of the bottle is lined. bottles Your Essential Oil Bottle Essential oil bottles are available in different sizes to meet your desired needs and requirements. They usually come in 5ml, 10ml as well as 15ml. Keeping essential oil bottles open is risky as they may fall-shatter-spill and the oils could also break down due to oxygen exposure. In such cases, wooden boxes, cases, or any container that can be secured are the best to store your essential oils in. Everyone uses essential oils for different personal purposes. Essential oils are quite easy to use and have amazing therapeutic benefits. They are commonly used for quick and easy palm  inhalation, steam inhalation that can help with cold and other ailments, massage that helps in toning the body and alleviating stress, room freshening by diffusing and for many medicinal and personal beauty reasons.  Key points to remember: 

  • Essential oils should be stored in a cool, dark place.
  • Avoid buying essential oils in plastic bottles as the essential oil can dissolve the plastic.
  • If you purchase a bottle with a rubber dropper cap, check rubber periodically for deterioration.
  • Wooden boxes and soft-sided cases are perfect to store essential oils.
