by Allison Huish

Instant Hand Sprays

Turn your 5ml and 15ml oil bottles into instant spray bottles! Spray Bottles can be used for so many things. You can make DIY hand sprays, room spray, air fresheners, and more! Use your mini spray bottles for friends, gifts or make & take classes. Purchase Spray Tops

 Instant Hand Cleaning Spray

  • 1.5ml Aloe Vera Gel
  • 15 drops immune boosting essential oils
  • Water and/or alcohol to top


Dropper Bottles with Internal Use Blends

Do you have a mix of oils that you love taking internally every day? Put all of those oils into one oil bottle and add a dropper top. Daily you just put a dropper of this mixture of oils under your tongue. Purchase Dropper Tops

 Skinny Jeans Oil Blend

  • 50 drops Yarrow|Pom
  • 50 drops Frankincense oil
  • 50 drops Turmeric oil
  • 50 drops Black  Pepper
  • 50 drops Pink Pepper

Put all oils into a 15ml essential oil bottle, then add on a dropper top. Put 4 drops of oil under your tongue 5x/day.


Make & Take Classes

DIY classes are one of the most fun and simplest ways to share oils with friends. Instead of buying full sized 16 oz pray bottles why not let people use your empty oil bottles to make a 1oz sample size. Purchase oil filament inserts

  1.  Start by adding your 10-15 drops of essential oils into a 15ml empty oil bottle
  2. Add your 1 tsp of salt.
  3. Stir bottle to mix essential oil and salt.
  4. Fill rest of bottle with water.
  5. Add sprayer top and shake well.  Dry bottle and label your spray. Shake well before each use.


Instant Roller Bottles

Did you know you can add a roller top right onto your 5ml and 15ml oil bottles? Unscrew the cap, pop off the orifice, then snap in a roller top. And now your oil bottles are instant roller bottles! The contents inside the bottle are up to you. Make your roller blends, dilute your essential oils, or neat – the choice is up to you! Purchase Roller Tops 


Sample Bottles

Drams are super fun and cute. But a suggestion is to give people a sample of oil from the original bottle – it comes already with a label around it! Leave a few drops of essential oil in the bottle and share the full size bottle.
