If you’re not new to my blog, you have probably seem some of my storage ideas for Essential Oils. Well! When we moved to a new home, I lost some kitchen space… and while I love our new home, it just isn’t the ideal set up to have a large Essential Oil shelf displayed on the counter. You can see what that looked like HERE. I kept that shelf and may use it some where in the future but for the time being, I had to find a new spot to store my oils. I had a small thrifted box that did work fairly well, however, I needed more room. I have accumulated a lot of Essential Oils. This collection does not happen over night. Buy an oil here and there. Not all at once. Unless you’ve saved and have a lot to spend at once. It is an investment… but seeing as we very rarely go to the doctor, this is our medical care for almost all colds, ailments, cuts, etc….I am not anti-modern medicine or anti-doctor. Thankful for both! There is a time and place for oils, just as there is a time and place to be seen by a medical professional. So do use common sense when treating your family.
Rocky Mountain Oils also offers FREE Shipping on all domestic orders. So that helps with placing small orders throughout a year. For a while I was just buying “1” oil or two a month… and over time I built quiet the collection.
So one night before Ladies Bible Study, I made my way to the local walmart in search of some sort of container to store my oils. As I was in the craft section, looking for some decorative tape. I came across a CLEAR tackle box. They had a HUGE shelf full of these… and the cost was under $5.00!I picked it up, knowing that even if it didnt work for my Essential Oils, I could very well use it for craft supplies or even make up. In fact, I like it so much, I may go back and pick another one up for those uses too! For the price, you can’t go wrong.
I was so excited to get home and put all my oils into the tackle box. Everything fits great. I have plenty of room for more oils too.
I am using my old storage box to store already diluted oils, blending supplies and labels.
I am also using my ETSY Travel Oil Bag still. I have diluted down all of our most used oils and placed them into this bag. This bag goes with us on any trips outside the home. While at home though I keep it out so that if the boys need a specific oil, this is where they go.
I use ROLLER bottles for majority of my diluted down oils. It makes applying them much easier on children. Most of my roller bottles did come from a local place back in Atlanta called Bread Beckers. However, amazon has them too. I believe Whole Foods has a few options as well.
Thats it though. I think this works really well and hope others can find them at their local walmarts as well. If you can’t find one at your walmart (remember, look in the craft section). I did find this one on amazon that looked similar. It wasn’t as cheap though.
