Since I started using essential oils frequently almost a year ago, I’ve struggled with finding a good solution for organizing essential oil roller bottles.
It’s easy enough to store regular bottles of essential oils – they’ll sit neatly in any plastic bin or even a box, but roller bottles are another story. They don’t stay upright because they fall over easily and end in a heap where you can’t find the right one when you need it.
At least that’s how it was for me until about a month ago when I figured out a very simple solution for how to organize essential oil roller bottles.
But I’ve hesitated at spending a minimum of $20 for a storage system that doesn’t fit all my oils and takes a lot of shelf space. For me, while they may not be quite as pretty, regular bins work well for organizing my essential oils conveniently.
I searched on Pinterest and Google for ideas and couldn’t find anything that worked for me. Until one day I stumbled on a simple idea.
I make lots of my own essential oil roller bottle blends. You can see a few of them here:
That means I buy empty roller bottles too. One day, I bought a new batch of roller bottles and realized the cardboard container they came packaged it was the perfect solution.
How to Organize Essential Oil Roller Bottles:
The roller bottles are stored neatly and kept upright.
You can easily see what oils you have by reading the label on the top.
Some brands, like Rocky Mountain Oils, already label the tops of their oil bottles. Thank you, RMO!
Anyways, I removed the empty roller bottles and put them into a small plastic bin (because they don’t need to be organized as neatly.)
I put all my essential oil roller bottles neatly into the individual sections and it works perfectly!
The cardboard slots inside itself aren’t the sturdiest and you will find it may bend a little, but it works quite well considering it’s pretty much free.
You could also replace the little slots with slightly thicker cardboard if you want. Either way, this is an inexpensive, no-DIY-required, solution to organize essential oil roller bottles!
For added support, you can keep your box in a small plastic bin, like this:
FYI, this is the brand of essential oil roller bottles I buy from Amazon that comes with this packaging. I’m sure most other brands would be similar, but this is the one I use. Don’t need 24 roller bottles? Here’s a 6 pack for $6.99.
If you’re somewhat new to essential oils, I highly recommend Rocky Mountain Oils and Eden’s Garden. Both are reasonably priced and are high quality, 100% pure therapeutic-grade essential oils that are third-party tested.
Both have their own lines of regular and kid-friendly ready-made roller bottles too.
Here are a few of the Rocky Mountain Oil roller bottles I have and use with my family:
I only have one from Eden’s Garden so far, but we use it every day and love it. It’s called Healthy Hero and is already diluted and ok to use on kids ages 2 and up. My kids have stayed healthy since we apply this oil daily now!
I hope that inspires you to organize your own essential oil roller blends. You don’t have to spend a fortune to do it, nor does it have to be a fancy DIY project!
