How to Store Essential Oils

Exposure to light can cause essential oils to oxidize rather quickly. As this happens, they typically lose their fragrance and any therapeutic qualities they may have had. Because of this, clear glass and plastic bottles should be avoided at all costs.



Store your oils in dark glass bottles.

Make sure the caps are airtight.

Use solid caps instead of rubber bulb-capped lids.

Many oil bottles come with a rubber bulb built into the cap. This is to facilitate easier application of the oils inside. These lids may be convenient, but the rubber will deteriorate over time. Even after a relatively short period of storage, the rubber inside the bulb can disintegrate and may even leak down into your oil.

Keep stored oils out of direct sunlight.

Avoid storing your oil in any location that leaves oil in direct sunlight, including bathroom or bedroom shelves. Sunlight can cause oils to oxidize in just a few months.

Store oils in a refrigerator.

Avoid heat sources.

Keep the cap tightly closed on the bottle.

Consider investing in an aromatherapy storage box.

Avoid storing oils on easily-damaged surfaces.

Check when oils were blended or bottled.

Most diluted essential oils should be marked with a bottling or blending date. This date lets you know when the pure essential oil was altered to produce the diluted product.

Check the label for higher-quality oil.

Look at the price of oils to assess their quality and purity.
