Reusable Essential Oil Bottles

What you'll Need: 

  • Empty essential oil bottles
  • Rag or paper towels
  • Water
  • Rubbing alcohol

First you'll need to take the tops off of the bottles. Get a pot of hot water boiling. Once its steaming hot, with an oven mitt or a towel wrapped around your hand, slightly dip the tip of the bottle in the water. It only takes about 15-30 seconds and then you should be able to remove it from the water and pop the top off with a towel. Save this rubber part though! 

Once the tops are off I let those soak in hot soapy water with the lids the entire time I'm cleaning the bottles. This will help eliminate any old oil sitting in them. I then take the rubbing alcohol in a small container or a bowl and start peeling off the label on the bottle. With the rubbing alcohol, rub off all of the gunk, or sticky stuff left from the label. It takes a couple rounds but eventually it will start shining up like a brand new bottle.  

I then let everything sit out for a few hours to dry, then reassemble and you have brand new glass bottles to re-use! I make my own mixtures and use it for baths and other stuff.  

It's really very simple to do. And who wouldn't want those cute little bottles! They look so awesome! I like to keep a mixture for the bath in one bottle so that when it's bath time I'm not grabbing for 5 different bottles! Or you could even make a perfume and keep the tops off of them.  

My Bath Mixture includes: 6 drops Lavendar, 4 drops Eucalyptus, 5 Drops Grapefruit, 1ml Vitamin E. What is your favorite mixture for the bathtub?
