Essential oils are great. While we’re not convinced they’re the miracle cure-alls they’re often touted as, we definitely see benefits from using them. Simply convincing yourself you’re partaking in some form of “self care” is self care in and of itself, right? The one thing we don’t love about owning a bunch of essential oils is the aesthetics of it all. Most of the bottles simply aren’t very pretty (sorry, we went there). From brightly colored labels to varying sizes and shapes, they simply don’t bring us a lot of zen.
So, given that we’re a little obsessed with these kinds ofthings, we decided to do something about it.
We started by gathering some supplies:
(click the links to shop!)
- 1 oz glass vials – amber (or, check out these other options: cobalt, amber and gold, matte black rectangular, matte black)
- mini funnels (this may not be necessary, depending on the vials you buy. some come with droppers to transfer oils)
- embossing label maker
- extra embossing label tape (if needed)
- optional (we did not buy): essential oil bottle opener
The rest is pretty self explanatory, but here’s how it’s done:
- First, transfer oil from original bottle to new vial using the funnel. A few notes: You may also need something to pry the inner plastic out of your original essential oil bottle. You can buy an essential oil bottle opener, but you should be able to find something around the house. We recommend trying to open your bottles before buying any tools! Also, be sure to wash your funnel or dropper before switching oils. Lastly, it’s recommended that you wear gloves, since some oils are not safe to be used directly on skin, and we don’t want your hands to burn.
- Next, seal tightly and wipe and dry the outside of your vial, to ensure the outside of your vial is clean.
- Then, use your label maker to type out the name of the oil
- Lastly, adhere label to vial
- Repeat, as needed.
Voilá. Doesn’t that look so much better?? If you try this out, be sure to share by tagging us @theblondeparty & using the hashtag #theblondepartyproject!
A FEW BONUS TIPS:
We also have used carrier oils to make roll-on oil blends, used water and a bit of alcohol to make room mists, and have used these larger 32oz bottles for hand and dish soap.
