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.
Quick Tip for Empty Essential Oil Bottles
If you opt to clean your empty essential oil bottle first, before cleaning it, here is an easy way to use the oil residue left in it.
First, remove the orifice reducer, then fill the empty bottle with water. Place lid on and shake well. Remove lid and pour the oil scented water into your diffuser. Add additional oils and water as needed to your diffuser, turn it on.
Now your oil bottle is ready to clean and no oil will be wasted!
What You Need for DIY Roll Ons
You will need a few things to transform your empty bottle into a DIY Roll On.
- Essential Oils/Premade Oil Blend
- Empty Oil Bottle (size 5 ml, 10 ml, or 15 ml)
- Carrier Oil (like jojoba oil)
- Roller Tops for EO Bottles
Regular roller bottle tops will not fit on essential oil bottles, they are too small. We currently have some roll on tops made especially for essential oil bottles, get them here.
How to Make DIY Roll Ons from Empty Essential Oil Bottles
Step 1: Add your essential oils into the empty bottle using a funnel. You will need to make sure that you use the right dilution, read more about diluting essential oils and get free printable dilution charts.
Step 2: Fill rest of bottle with carrier oil of choice.
Step 3: Place roller top on bottle and shake well to blend oils. Be sure the top is fully seated on the bottle to prevent leaking.
Step 4: Label your roll on and enjoy!
