Great! You are starting to use essential oils and are on your way to holistic health and wellness. But did you know that the therapeutic benefits of most essential oils will deteriorate if exposed to sunlight, heat, and/or air? The oils need to be stored properly to prevent them from deterioration and preserve their aromatic qualities. But don't fret...properly storing the oils is simple!
If you blend your own oils the same rules apply for storage! Be sure to buy quality amber glass containers that will seal appropriately.
You can see the wooden case I use to store many of my oils in the pictures. This was actually a wooden cast that was being thrown out that I repurposed. With a few shelves added in, some paint, and elastic stapled across the inside shelves, I now have a cool, dry, and dark enclosed box for all my oils! I added a handy little handle to the top to make it easy to carry wherever I need it.
Thanks for visiting.
