If you are anything like me, you don’t want one drop of those precious essential oils going to waste! This holds true for all kinds, but especially the expensive ones (I use a few different brands that I trust). I can never help but notice that even when you get all you can out, there is still residue around the lid and inside the little jars. I have tried taking the empty bottles and letting them soak in bathwater as we bathe, but because essential oils are not really water soluble, there’s still always some residue left. Finally I came up with an idea that works great for getting ALL the oil from the jar in a way that it can still be utilized.
Here it is! All you need is;
- Rubbing alcohol or Everclear
- A Jar with a tight lid
- Empty E.O. bottles
All you have to do take the lids off and the stoppers out, and pop them in a jar with the bottles. Fill the jar with alcohol. Shake gently and let it sit for awhile. You can pour it off after awhile and store it in whatever you like. You now have an essential oil scented cleaning solution!
You can use this solution in various homemade cleaning products. Or you can just put it in your cleaning water!

Also, if you are looking for an excellent and honest essential oil authority to trust and follow, I highly recommend the Essential Oil University.
