How to Make DIY Roll Ons From Empty Essential Oil Bottles

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!
