Do You Have Empty Bottles?

Do you have a bunch of empty essential oil bottles sitting around? We may or may not be guilty of this, too. Getting the smell and residue of the prior oil out of the glass bottle isn’t too hard – let us show you how we clean out our bottles so we can reuse them for future DIY projects and blends.

What You’ll Need

  • a medium glass bowl
  • white vinegar
  • water

What You’ll Do

First, place your empty glass essential oil bottles into your glass bowl. Next, cover with 1 part vinegar to 1 part water. Allow the essential oil bottles to soak for at least 2 hours. For better results, leave them soaking overnight. After they have soaked, rinse well.

Sometimes, it’s tough getting the smell out of the caps and reducers. Because of this, we now have available a package of 12 caps and reducers to purchase. You can reuse your bottles and have nice clean caps for your personal DIY blends. Get your caps & reducers today!

  • I was wondering if you maybe offered a recycle program for the bottles? We could ship them back and then you could sterilize and reuse? Just a thought, I could never reuse this amount of bottles myself! Lol.

  • Aah..thank you. Could never underdtand how folks were using their oils so much that they had empties! Then we made some candles today. Oh yeah.

  • How do you go about acquiring Orifice Reducers for very think oils like what I have on my Buddha Wood or Vetiver bottles?

    1. I do not know where to source larger orifice reducers, but for thicker oils, we often recommend using a pipette. Feel free to reach out to our Customer Service Team at [email protected] and they may be able to help you further 🙂

  • Do the roller caps fit in the bottles? I want to reuse my bottles as a roller blend but not sure if it would work or not.

  • Finding out that PT sells new reducers and caps was life changing. I finally bought a couple of sets and gave myself permission to top my custom blends with a fresh set of caps. Thank you for offering these!

  • Thank you for the post….been looking for this article! My empty bottles are starting to collect, and wanted to re-purpose them for stock blends. Thanks so much 🙂

  • I have read a bit on the use of glass over plastic. But I see for products sold in accessories that you only sell plastic spray bottles and aluminum. Do you have glass or plan to sell glass? If not, what makes these plastic bottles a good substitute. Thank you.

  • Do you need to do anything special to get the labels off easily? Also, when reading the reviews for the caps and reducers, there seemed to be some concerns about the previously offered side vents vs the currently offered center vents (from what I could tell). What type of reducers are currently being sold? And is this the difference between euro droppers and regular droppers- side vent vs middle vent?
    I’m very new, so I am trying to learn as much as I can. Plant Therapy is teaching me soooo much. <3
    I love your directions for cleaning bottles and diffusers! Thank you! 🙂

    1. Please feel free to contact our customer service department. I have contacted them about your concerns and they are ready to address them. Thank you for being such a valued customer! [email protected]

    1. Some people get concerned about the chemical reaction of essential oils with the metal, however I haven’t seen any studies that show an issue so I don’t think it would be a problem to clean your bottles using a metal bowl.
