How To Use Up Every Last Drop of Your Essential Oils
If you have ever wondered what to do with the teeny-tiny drops and vapors of essential oils that are left once you empty a bottle, wonder no more!
This easy trick will ensure your precious oils are good to the very last drop…literally!
How To Use Every Last Drop Of Your Essential Oils
Here’s what you need:
- Epsom salts
- Glass jar with lid
- 3+ empty (or as empty as you can make them) EO bottles with dispensers and lids
Here’s how to do it:
Begin by removing the lids from each bottle and set aside. Next, pop out the dispenser. You’ll probably have to use your fingernails to get under it, but it will come out. For each oil, you should have three parts: the lid, the dispenser, and the bottle.
Pour enough Epsom salts in the bottom of the glass jar to just cover the bottom. Add one bottle, dispenser, and lid. Pour in a little more salts, then add another bottle, dispenser, and lid.
Keep going until you’ve used all your bottle parts and filled the jar to the rim.
Cap the jar and gently shake and turn it over with your hands. This will allow the Epsom salts to get inside the EO bottles and absorb every last drop and aroma.
Allow your jar of Epsom salts sit for at least 24 hours, but you can leave the bottle parts in the jar of salts indefinitely.
When you’re ready to use those wonderfully scented bath salts, transfer the salts slowly into a clean jar, removing bottle pieces as you go. If you accidentally leave a dispenser in the salts, you’ll find it when you take a bath.
Add 1-2 cups of these aromatherapeutic, magnesium-rich, custom-scented Epsom salts to a hot bath and enjoy a relaxing soak!
Now you can thoroughly wash your empty bottles, dispensers, and lids, remove the labels if you desire, and reuse them for your own oil blends or carriers.
I like to save my empty 5mL bottles with the labels on and re-fill them from my larger 15mL oils so that I can keep them in my purse or travel or even give samples away to friends and family.
It won’t matter if you have lots of different oils going in to your mix. There won’t be enough of any one oil to overpower the others, and it’s likely that you’ll have a nice mix of base, middle, and top notes blended into your bath salts.
The great thing about this is that each batch of bath salts will be different as you use and empty various essential oils.
