Have you ever wanted to display your essential oils around your home, but didn’t want to put them on a shelf or the counter? This DIY project is great for displaying your favorite oils and making them easy to find!
You probably have a lot of essential oils lying around your house that you use occasionally but never put into a specific bottle or container. Essential oils can be expensive, so it can be helpful to have an organized system for storing them. Here are four tips to help you create a DIY essential oil display and storage system:
Start with a basic display case
This can be anything from a small jewelry box to an antique cabinet. You can also build a small box to suit your needs.
Create labels for each bottle or container
This will help you keep track of which oil is in which bottle or jar. You can make your own labels using a printer or some simple printing software.
Store your essential oils in dark, cool containers.
This will help preserve their quality and ensure they remain effective when used. Glass bottles are ideal for this type of storage, but any dark, cool container will work fine.
Make sure to rotate your essential oil supply regularly
Storing the same blend of oil in the same container for months on end can lead to bacterial build-up and loss.
The next step in setting up your DIY essential oil display and storage is to organize your oils into groups by type. For example, put all the carrier oils together, all of the citrus oils together, etc. This will make it much easier to find what you are looking for when you need it! Another way to organize your oils is by use. For example, put all the topical oils together, all the aromatherapy oils together, etc. This will help you remember how each oil is used and which ones might be best for a certain situation.
Finally, make sure to keep track of which oils have been used and which ones are still in stock. This way, you will never run out of essential oils and can always create new blends or treatments!
Now that your newly created essential oil display is complete, it’s time to organize and store your oils. Here are a few ideas for organizing your oils:
- Use small bottles with droppers to dispense the oils onto a mesh shelf or tray;
- Place a diffuser near the front of the shelf so you can enjoy the fragrance every time you pass by;
- Create an aromatherapy station by grouping various essential oil bottles with scents such as lavender, eucalyptus, and peppermint;
- Line a drawer with cotton balls and place small bottles of essential oil on top;
- Hang a basket filled with carrier bags from the ceiling to store your oils in easy reach.
If you’re like most people, your essential oil collection is probably scattered all over your house. But that’s no way to enjoy your oils! Displaying your oils in one place makes it easy to get to them and use them, and it looks great too! Here are four tips for creating a DIY essential oil display:
- Choose a focal point. If you have large wall space, try hanging your oils from hooks or rails. If you have a smaller space, try using vertical shelves or small racks.
- Choose an aesthetic. You can go with a modern look, or opt for a more traditional look. Either way, your oils will look beautiful!
- Organize the bottles by type or scent. This will make it easy to find the oil you’re looking for.
- Add some light. If your oils are dark, add some light fixtures or lamps to help light up the display.
Tips for Making Storage
One of the most challenging parts of starting your own essential oil business is finding a way to store all of the different bottles, droppers, and diffusers you’ll be using. Here are some tips to help you make the most of your storage space:
- If you have a lot of space, consider creating a DIY essential oil display and storage unit. This can be as simple as constructing a wooden frame covered in clear plastic sheeting or by purchasing an already-made unit like this one from The Essential Oil Store.
- If you don’t have a lot of space, consider using small containers that can be easily stored on shelves or in drawers. Some popular varieties include glass vials, dropper bottles, and screw-top jars.
- If you prefer not to use any type of storage unit, simply roll up your oils into small balls and store them in a cool, dry place like your refrigerator. Just make sure to label each ball with its corresponding oil name and concentration so you can easily find what you need when you need it!
