So, it’s no secret that I love my essential oils and am rarely anywhere without at least a few. Since I typically dilute my oils for everyday use and use with the kidlings, I tend to collect glass jars and roller bottles. I will put the drops of EO in the glass jar, quantity depending on the use, and then fill it the rest of the way with my carrier oil. This works great for me so I have oil ready to use, already diluted and able to just roll on when and where needed. As I am sitting here typing this, I currently have 4 roller bottles and a spray bottle sitting by my computer screen, 9 roller bottles, 2-15 ml bottles, my new pump bottle and a spray bottle on my bathroom counter and there are 10 roller bottles in small bowl on my counter in the kitchen at all times and since I have a coughing child, there are 3-15 ml bottles and my carrier oil bottle out as well. To say nothing of the stash of oils up in my cabinet plus the ones in my wonderful Sew Grown case in my purse that goes everywhere with me!
The roller bottles offer such ease of use, I highly recommend everyone who uses EO’s to use them. Glass cosmetic bottles such as the pump bottles and spray glass jars are wonderful for insect repellent and hand sanitizer sprays as well. Plus, the small glass cosmetic lotion style bottles come in handy for adding scents to lotions and rubs.
As a busy mom with kids, being able to pre-dilute and prepare my EO’s enables me to use them easily, in diluations I am comfortable with and when I leave them sitting on the counter, it makes it much easier to use as well.
I often just get my bottles from the local natural food stores or Amazon but when Infinity Jars contacted me about reviewing some of their glass jars I was thrilled to give them a try. Just a quick visit to their website made me realize I could quickly get hooked on their products. Their jars are a beautiful dark glass, a thick glass, a super dark violet color, making them safe from ultra-violet exposure which is such a benefit for your EO’s.
I choose several sizes of glass jars in both glass and steel rollers, a small spray bottle and a glass cosmetic jar with pump to try out. My order came quickly and well packed. Everything arrived in place and not scattered all over the box. I quickly put my new glass jars into use. The pump style jar I had never used before, but had been wanting to try a hair oil/leave in conditioner and thought that would be a good bottle to use. The glass cosmetic jar with pump has been working wonderfully. Pumps easily, doesn’t drip on the counter after use and while my formula mixture is still going through some tweaking, the jar itself is fabulous. The small glass spray bottle I filled with my hand santizer spray mixture and I have it in my purse. I love that this little size fits wonderfully in my Sew Grown case making it easy to pull out and use while the kids and I are out and end up using public bathrooms and spaces. The spray is strong and sure for the little size glass jar, it hasn’t clogged up at all or leaked after spraying. I am eager to see how the spray mechanism holds up over multiple months since they do tend to deteriorate after using for awhile but I am very happy with it so far.
Now, on to the glass jars with rollers, I got them in the 5ml, 10ml and 30 ml sizes. I got one with a glass roller bottle and the other 2 with the steel. Overall, I tend to personally like the steel better but wanted to try them both. As for the rollers, both have performed wonderfully. The 30 ml glass jar I used for my husband’s “Happy Hinges” blend of oils, he goes through this oil rather quickly and I loved the larger size roller jar to make my batches last a bit longer. We did find the roller seemed to release more oil quickly than his smaller and old bottle had, but he adapted quickly to rolling on just what he needed, and its been great. The smaller jars I have with a few oils I use frequently and I have loved them.
Just holding the glass jars in your hand with the typical bottle and you can feel such a difference in the quality it’s amazing. The lids screw on nicely, the ball roll as they are suppose to, no leaks…. I am one happy oiler!
A little bit about the glass jars themselves from the Infinity Jars website:
Infinity Jars can actually slow down the decaying process of organic matter while maintaining the freshness of whatever you put inside. What sets Infinity Jars apart from all other jars is that it blocks out all harmful visible light rays while selectively ALLOWING infrared and UV-A rays.
Infinity Jars’ special pigmented glass is thicker and more durable than your standard glass; it is smell-proof, blocks harmful UV light and is visually discreet. Furthermore, all of our jar lid systems, the screwtop and glass-on-glass lid, are completely airtight. Your products are totally protected, preserved much like ancient Egyptians- who invented deep violet glass thousands of years ago and preserved precious oils and herbs for centuries in tombs. The integrity of your lotions, essential oils or spices is guaranteed to be protected for over 6 months when you use our products.
I also appreciated the notes included with my order on using the glass jars with rollers the first time. The bottles come so that when you first tighten them down, it seals on firmly. And then when you need to refill, you are able to pop the tops off and put back on again. Plus, as a nice touch, I loved the little cleaning rag included to wipe your exteriors clean before applying the label so it sticks nicely on the jar.
Overall, I am very happy with the Infinity Jars and would definitely order from them again.
I know when I spend good money on quality EO’s I appreciate being able to use just as high a quality glass jar to store them in as I make blends or dilute for everyday use.
Visit Infinity Jar’s store here and I am sure you will be as impressed by their products as I am. You can read more on the science behind their jars and their amazing capabilities here.
Want to try the blends I mentioned above? Both are ones I created and use daily around here. I have included my recipes below!
