Once you start using essential oils, you’ll probably find yourself with an ever growing collection of those wonderful little bottles! #Truth? Those little bottles and supplies can easily get out of control. Essential oil storage is a must!
Must-haves for essential oil storage, organization and convenience
First you’ll need a place to keep your main collection of oils.
If you have a large collection of oils, you may like a permanent storage shelf. Using a shelf will make it easy to find what you’re looking for and keep your oils in view so you remember to actually use them. Since I end up carrying my oils all over the house, I prefer to use a small crate for the oils that stay at home.
Of course you’re going to bring some oils with you when you leave the house! I’ve just purchased this adorable padded case (shown in the graphic below) to keep the oils that I take in my purse safe and convenient. It’s my new favorite essential oil storage solution.
I’m hooked on roller fitments! They turn a regular bottle of oil into a roller bottle. I’m a bit paranoid about my kids knocking over a bottle and spilling all that precious oil.
Plus, if I make a blend to be used topically, it’s so much more convenient and less messy to have a roller fitment right on the bottle.
You can get roller fitments on Amazon. It’s important to use a metal or glass roller because the oils can leach away at plastic ones over time.
Labels are an absolute must! You can get a big sheet of labels for $6 or $7 so I always keep a couple copies in case I need an extra label.
If you make your own essential oil blends it’s super handy to be able to grab one bottle with a roller fitment on top and quickly apply instead of hunting for 2 or 3 bottles.
I use some simple adhesive labels like these to jot down what’s in the bottle and when I made it. And when the bottle is empty and you want to put something else in it, just use this simple tip for removing the old label.
Basket or box for empty bottles
Of course the empty essential oil bottles are eventually going to accumulate and if you’re like me, you can’t bear to throw them out. I put mine in a small basket specifically reserved for empties. Then I have one if I need a bottle to give to someone or if I want to make a blend.
Those are my must-haves for essential oil storage and organization.
