You have a slew (or maybe just a couple) of essential oils and now you need to use them. It *seems* intimidating at first. Don’t fear – it only gets easier overtime. And I promise that using oils is a lot easier than running to the doctor, buying all-purpose cleaners from the store, etc. The items in this list are to help you get the MOST out of your oils. I’d hate for you to only be able to use them one way. So here’s my list of the Top Essential Oil Accessories that you need to get started!
Don’t have any Essential Oils yet? I can help you with there! Don’t go to Amazon or the nearest health food store – buy from a reputable company with the highest quality standards. Check out my SHOP PAGE for the best prices (25% off).
Top Must-Have Essential Oil Accessories
The best way to use an Essential Oil Aromatically is to diffuse the oil. Diffusers have completely replaced candles and air fresheners in our home. It’s cheaper, healthier, and I think it smells better too. You can get a cheapo starter diffuser on Amazon for a reasonable price. I have this GreenAir SpaVapor diffuser. Fair warning, though, it died within a year of buying it. You get what you pay for when it comes to essential oil diffusers.
I personally prefer my doTERRA Diffusers. We keep a Petal Diffuser in the kid rooms. The wholesale price on the Petal Diffuser is $47 so it’s a nice, entry price.
Want a better than starter diffuser? Try the Ace or the AromaLite. These are my favorites. I’ll be upgrading all of our diffusers to these eventually. Check out my SHOP Page for links to purchasing doTERRA brand diffusers.
2. Essential Oil Reference Book
My favorite book reference book if from Oil Life. I also own and like a few books from AromaTools and The Essential Midwife (she has a pregnancy books called Essential Oils for Pregnancy, Birth & Babies. This one is KEY! To be your own Essential Oil Expert you need to have an Essential Oil reference book. Add it to your list of top must have essential oil accessories.
3. Glass or Stainless Steel Water Bottle
If you want to have essential oil flavored water on-the-go, then you need a glass or stainless steel water bottle. You’ll ruin your nice plastic water bottles or tumblers if you let the citrus oils touch them. Citrus oils break down petrochemicals (plastics). I know, I don’t want to drink from a bottle that’s breaking down. Yuck. I’ve gone through a bunch of different types of glass water bottles. Certain types of seals will wear or fall off overtime – not good! I like this Glass Water Bottle the most.
4. Glass Spray Bottles
I’m sure you know that you can make your own All-Purpose Spray with your essential oils! It’s where most people get started in their EO journey. Well, to do this, you’ll need Glass Spray Bottles. Just like in the 3rd item, you can’t mix plastic and essential oils. So invest in a couple of glass spray bottles! They are about the same price as those chemical filled sprays – so no money lost.
My favorite place for EO safe containers and the CUTEST labels, I personally always use Easy Oil Solutions. They have adorable labels and fun things like gemstone rollers for your roller bottles.
5. Veggie Capsules
I highly recommend that you get Veggie Caps if you use essential oils therapeutically. It’s an easy way to use the oils internally. Plus, veggie caps are stupid cheap – about $4 for 160 capsules. Just add them to your doTERRA essential oil order before you check out.
6. Carrier Oil
You need carrier oils. If you got ONE thing from this list, I’d suggest that you get a good carrier oil. The majority of each drop you use will evaporate if you don’t dilute it – it’s called Flash Off. Every essential oil is incredibly concentrated so some carrier oil is important. I get Fractionated Coconut Oil from doTERRA, so add it to your next essential oil order. Fractionated Coconut Oil (or FCO) has fat taken out of the oil so that it doesn’t solidify in the cold. You need this if you want to make roller bottles and blends.
7. Roller Bottles
This accessory used to be very important before doTERRA came out with the Touch series. I live by the Touch Kits – you should too. But if you need to make your own blend then you’ll need Roller Bottles. I like the ones with Stainless Steel roller balls.
If you want more than the basic plain roller bottle or you want adorable labels for your rollers, check out Easy Oil Solutions. They are by far my favorite Essential Oil supply store.
Here are a few more items you might like to add your list of items to have. The ones you see above are NEEDS. These items below are just fun and nice to have!
8. Flip-Top Caps
Get some fun flip-top caps for your bottles! They are super nice to have – especially if you find yourself using the same oil everyday. We diffuse Lavender or Serenity every night in our kids’ rooms to help them sleep and I love that I just flip the top, shake, and pop closed with one hand. I got mine from Got Oil Supplies.
9. Roller Tops
I love having roller bottles for blends, but sometimes it’s really nice to have a roller top that can be directly inserted into the essential oil bottle. I like to keep a roller top on oils like AromaTouch and Balance. I got mine from Got Oil Supplies.
Some oils are annoying thick. They are supposed to be thick but it’s a pain to get the oil out of the bottle. Myrrh and Vetiver are this way. I keep a dropper top on these oils and it saves me a headache!
11. Throat Spray Top
Did you know that there are specific Throat Spray tops?? Neat right?
