Glass Droppers for Your Essential Oils!

Hi again!  I’m so excited about my newest find, I just have to share with you!

Glass droppers

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I have a hard time getting out just the right amount of essential oil from my bottles.  It usually doesn’t matter if I get an extra drop or two, but if it’s an oil we are using for internal use, I like to be as precise as I can.  :)

I know an extra drop certainly won’t hurt us, but I want my bottles to last as long as they can!

Young Living sells glass droppers, but when I called, they said the droppers were too long to store in the bottles, and therefore could not be used as lids.

But then I found these babies at Abundant Health!!  They make one for the 15ml bottles and one for the 5ml bottles.  The rep told me that the glass is a little long for the 15ml bottles, but just to push the dropper up into the cap a bit for it to fit as a lid.  The droppers for the 5ml bottles fit the Young Living bottles perfectly.  :)

Here are the links to the droppers at Abundant Health:

5ml Glass Dropper

They come in packs of 6 and are so reasonably priced.

One Thing to Remember…

The rep said the one thing to remember is that the oils can eat through the rubber bulb at the top.  So as long as you store your oils on a flat surface, you can use the droppers as lids.  But if they will be tossed around (like in a purse/bag/etc), your best bet is to stick with the regular lid.  Just a little FYI.  :)

I Love These Things!!

For the oils I use regularly, I just love using the glass droppers over the regular orifice.  I even have a blend that I use on my little guy every day (some V-6 plus a couple of oils), and it is so darn convenient to squirt out 4-5 drops and rub it on him, rather than making the mixture every time I use it on him.

I am easy to please, folks!  These droppers are fantastic.  :)

    Thanks for this post about droppers. I have them from Abundant Health and love the control I get by using the droppers. My question is about keeping this as the lid. My oils are stored upright as well, so no chance of the oils eroding the rubber top. My question for you is…do your oils last the same amount of time? Wondering if air can get into the bottle because of the rubber part…do you think it’s airtight? I know no oils spill out if I tip it over…just wondering what your experience has been. thanks!

    • Angie says:

      Hi Sharon, I have used the droppers as lids (when stored upright!) on some of my oils, and I haven’t had any issues with them at all. I go through them quickly, though, too – I only use droppers on oils I use frequently :)

    do the droppers reach all the way to the bottom of the 15mL vials? thanks!

    • Angie says:

      The ones I have from Abundant Health do… as a matter of fact, they are a little long, so the glass dropper has to be pushed up into the rubber piece to fit in the bottle!

    Can you tell me, what is the easiest way to remove the re-srticter/limiter from the bottle so u can use these droppers?

    • Angie says:

      I just lift the edge of the plastic orifice with my nail, and then it easily pops off!

    • Kate says:

      There is also an orifice removing tool you can pick up from amazon for a couple bucks. It has parts for removing and installing both orifice reducers and roller balls. If you aren’t into that you can untwist your lid and just set it back on crooked. Then pull off to the side. There is a video of this on YouTube.

    Hi Angie,

    Thanks so much for sharing on this. I have been searching online on how to use glass droppers with EOs. But if I were to use glass droppers for the purpose of blending oils, then how do I get rid of the residual EO from inside the dropper before inserting it into another EO? I am worried of “contamination” of the 2nd EO that I insert the dropper into. :p

    • Angie says:

      Hi Florence! On the droppers I have at least, the glass dropper piece can be removed from the rubber bulb. You could probably use some gentle soap on the glass dropper piece and stand it up to dry!
