Amber Glass Bottles, Empty
- Awesome Essential Oils / Extremely Inconvenient Packaging Review by a sucker for convenience
These are the same bottles that they sell their essential oils in. I purchase essential oils from several different companies and eden botanicals is among (if not) the best.
Unfortunately their bottles are the worst. First off I am a sucker for convenience and wished the bottles came with orifice reducers for easy use. They only sell orifice reducers for three sizes and they don't even work well (I have tried everything from citrus to vetiver). The bottles (especially the smaller ones) fall over very easily. So you are left with rebottling everything before use.
This has forced me to make the majority of my purchases from different companies with much more convenient packaging. Too bad such a little detail could make such a big difference.
RESPONSE FROM THE OILS ROOM:
I have worked for several essential oil companies (Aroma Vera-Marcel Lavabre, Original Swiss Aromatics-Kurt Schnaubelt, Oshadhi-Malte Hozzel) and the bottles that we use are standard for the industry. And as oils room manager for Eden Botanicals, I have extensive experience with filling bottles of all sizes. Our 1/16 oz vial has a very low center of gravity and does not easily tip over. The 1/8 oz vials, being taller, do need to be handled a little more carefully.
As far as our orifice reducers, they work with thin oils such as citrus, though viscous oils such as Vetiver, Sandalwood, carrier oils and other thicker oils can be more of a challenge. We offer orifice reducers for those customers who want to use them, but have always recommended using pipettes when creating a blend. Precise measurement for both Aromatherapists and natural perfumers is critical, and we find using pipettes to be a much more accurate way of dispensing drops. We appreciate your feedback, our sincere apologies for any inconvenience this has caused. (Posted on 3/10/14)
