Some sources recommend using dark amber or cobalt blue colored glass bottles. Use plastic or aluminum for products containing â€œdilutedâ€ essential oils.. In many cases, essential oils are added to lotions or other products. When mixed with a lotion, for example, the essential oil's potency is diluted.
Diluted essential oils are mixed with other products, such as carrier oils like coconut oil and sweet almond oil.. Diluted oils can be stored in plastic containers, typically PET plastics, which are less expensive than glass containers.
Our line of essential oil vials, glass and plastic containers, and dispensing tools are perfect for storing and dispensing oils, lotions, sprays, colognes, massage .
We should only use plastics that will not breakdown when exposed to essential oils. For instance, doTERRAÂ® uses plastic parts (lids, orifices, diffusers, etc.) .
