Do you save your old oil bottles? If not, I encourage you to start. There are many uses for empty essential oil bottles. One way I like to use them is as DIY Roll ons.
After an oil bottle is emptied, there is still usually a little bit of oil left in the bottle that won't drip out. Don't let that oil go to waste! You can choose to use the bottle with the oil residual in it (without cleaning) or get the oil out and clean the bottle before transforming it into a roll on.
