Top 6 places to buy D.I.Y supplies for Essential Oils.
One of the most common questions we are asked is “where is the best place to purchase D.I.Y supplies?’
Once you get your beautiful oils you will need a few things to go along with them, such as rollers, foaming hand wash bottles and spray bottles so you can create your own roller blends, cleaning products, beauty products and so much more, the options are endless. You want to get the most out of your oils investment and this list will help you implement some low-tox changes into your lifestyle that you crave.
Once you get started making your own products you will never go back to store brought! It’s a great way to get the most out of your oil and it is oh so simple. You will wonder why you were not doing this sooner!
I have complied a list of our favourite suppliers to get your started. If you have any favourites please feel free to post in the comments. We always advocate buying locally where possible and understand that often for DIY type supplies it can be a challenge to source locally.
1.OILS FOR LIFE AUSTRALIA would have to be my top favorite. Wide selection of roller bottles in all different colours , spray bottles , kits , books and all a huge range of carriers oils and raw bulk ingredients.
also stock some labels , not the prettiest going around in my option though. Don’t forget to put the code SISTERS in for a discount.
2.CENTAUR PACKAGING is another great one .
Lots of goodies on this website including roller bottles, jars and they stock the best spay bottles that work well with vinegar , some spray bottles are not compatible with vinegar and will seize up after a very short period of time.
They also stock a lot of bulk raw ingredients.
3.AROMA BOTTLES AUSTRALIA has a beautiful selection on bottles etc that already come with labels , the foaming hand wash bottles from here are my absolute favorite.
Be careful with these spray bottles as they are not recommended to use with vinegar and will seize up. Great if you are just using oils and water or even water and the on guard cleaning concentrate.
They also stock labels seperatly for all your home made goodies such as body scrubs, hand wash and rollers.
4. ANITAS ESSENTIAL OILS
Anitas have an awesome range of rollers, spray bottles, books, stickers, oil carry bags and so much more!
5.BY-ME this is actually one of BJ’s favourites for the most gorgeous labels for your DIY creations. So sleek and modern. The labels are waterproof and removable so you can use them over and over again. By-Me also stock a great range of other supplies in beautiful high end finishes so suit even the most on trend home.
6.doTERRA - if you have wholesale account with doTERRA you can purchase high quality supplies via their USA warehouse. Log into your account and click into the US products tab and start shopping. The roller bottles are the very best on the market, they never leak. In fact, they same roller bottles doTERRA sell their own top quality oils in. You will also find the continuous spray bottles and a pump for your doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil (FCO) bottle, this one is an absolute must buy.
If you do not have your own doTERRA wholesale account, contact us here and we can help you open one. You will instantly save a minimum of 30% off retail prices and up to 55% after 1 year of membership.
These are just a few of our favourites to get you started. Have fun and if you are looking for inspiration on how to your your oils or what you can make, check out the doTERRA DIY blog , pinterest and the Inspired Little Pot website.
A little note on shipping. Due to the fact these products can actually be quite heavy, the shipping cost to the retailer can be very high and this in most cases will be passed on to the consumer. To save money it can be a great idea to get a bunch of people together and do a bulk order. Then you can share the shipping cost and in some instances the shipping can be free if the order is over a certain amount.
As always reach out if you need any assistance at all.
