“Scent is our most primitive sense. It’s the closet thing to the emotional brain. It penetrates you. You love it, and you want to be part of it.”

Uses For Empty Essential Oil Bottles

Essential oils are great for everything from homemade clean supplies to non-toxic home scents. If you use a lot of oils, you quickly end up with a large stash of used bottles. Here are a few great ways to reuse them.
BATH SALTS – Oil bottles are great for using those last drops to make bath salts. Place a little carrier oil in each bottle and give it a shake. Then toss the bottles into a big jar of Epson salts. Put the lid on the jar and give it a shake. Let them sit until you need some bath salt and pull them out. The Epsom salts absorb the essential oils left in the bottles using every last drop while making the bottles easier to clean for other uses.
BLENDS – Old essential oil bottles are perfect for mixing your own oil blends in. The droppers built in are perfect for dispensing drops of diluted oils or you can upgrade them by adding a roller top to your old essential oil bottles. Larger essential oil bottles can easily attach to spray bottle tops to make your own essential oil linen sprays, find labels here.
INHALER – Old bottles make great inhalers for essential oils. After washing out well, shove a small bit of cotton into the bottle and add several drops of your choice oils. Seal the cap and give it time to spread. While on the go, open your inhaler, cup your hands around it and take a deep breath.
CAR DIFFUSER – Add your favorite oils in small amounts to the bottles and use as a car air freshener. Check out this adorable little handmade macrame holder:
VASE – Remove lid/labels and clean bottles. Now you can use these as little vases. This is especially nice if you use a bunch as a centerpiece for an outdoor tablescape.
