Essential Oils Wooden Storage Case – Holds Up to 74 Bottles – Large Capacity Box with Customizable Slots – Bonus Color-Coded Bottle Cap Stickers and 25 pips


Nice case with plenty of room!

Please note, I received this case for free but all opinions expressed in the following review are my own. 

essential oils storage boxI love working with essential oils and have acquired a fairly large collection. My favorites I keep on my bedside vanity with my diffuser, but I have others stored all over the place. I have wanted one of these storage cases for a very long time now because it is frustrating to have to look for the bottle you want and not be able to find it! I like to keep my things organized and this is the perfect case to do it with.

Advantages:

Able to hold 68 (5-15 ml) Essential Oil Bottles and 6 (10ml) roller bottles

Case is divided with a wooden grid to keep each oil in its place. 

Box comes with a secure latch to prevent accidental spills

Bonus materials include 25 pipettes, aromatherapy eBook on a cd, and a pack of colored sticker labels

Disadvantages:

When the box arrived, the wooden grid of squares for each oil was jammed into the box and was too big, making it stick up at an odd angle. My husband had to remove the grid and sand one of the sides to make it fit. 

One of the slats was broken, but my husband was able to glue it and fix it. 

essential oils storage boxOther Highlights:  This box is made of white pine and comes unfinished so you can customize it to fit your needs. Right away my husband had plans for this, he is going to spray stain it in a rich mahogany color. I am also going to place some felt in the bottom of the box and under the lid. Now, of course, you don’t have to do any of this. You can use it exactly the way it comes. This just gives you the option of making your box more decorative or fancy if you would like to. 

Other ideas you could use to dress it up would be painting it or even using decoupage to dress it up in your favorite theme. 

This box wouls be useful to store other things besides essential oils. Right away my son thought it would be perfect for his Lego people.  It would actually for any kind of small collection. Any person that is into crafts could find a myriad of uses for it. Jewelry making is a hobby that comes to mind. 

Recommendation:

I love this box and will undoubtedly get a lot of use from it. I do feel the quality control could have been better. This should have never shipped to a customer like it did with the grid not fitting and a slat that was broken. If I didn’t have someone familiar with woodworking to fix it for me, I might have sent it back.

Ultra Pure Sandalwood Essential Oil (Santalum Album) – Brooklyn Botany – East Indian Sandalwood, 100% Pure, 1 fl. oz. Great for Skin, Hair Care, Acne Treatment & Aromatherapy

Sold by Brooklyn Botany


Smells heavenly, makes my skin look great, and makes me feel calm

sandalwood essential oil I have found my new favorite essential oil. Move over Bergamot and Bulgarian Lavender. Sorry Basil. I think this is truly one of the most wonderful things I have smelled in a very long time. I have been wanting to smell Sandalwood for a long time but of course, it is usually out of my price range. This is East Indian Sandalwood though and not from the Australian Sandalwood that is almost non-existant anymore. I am sure that is why this is so reasonably priced. I can’t imagine the Australian smelling any better than this! Sandalwood is used a lot in perfumes, now I know why, it smells so great.

Usually, I prefer flowery scents. This isn’t flowery but it has the soft tones that I love. I think another thing that makes it such a memorable scent is that it actually lasts for a very long time. When I unwrapped the package and opened the bottle I immediately smelled it. That one sniff stayed with me for the longest time. My husband really likes this scent too because he gets so tired of my flowery scents all of the time. I use this a lot in my bedroom diffuser which runs almost all of the time. I often combine it with Jasmine and the smell just takes me back to the times I traveled in Asia. Smell can trigger some powerful memories.

This essential oil is good for so many different things. I have been using it as a moisturizer on my face and added a few drops to the toner that I have made for my own use. In the diffuser or in an aromatherapy necklace, this is said to have a very calming effect. That is always something good to have constantly being diffused throughout the room.

sandalwood essential oil colorI think some people immediately get upset that some essential oils are not as expensive as they expect them to be. I for one am thrilled this is at a reasonable price point because that means I can order some more when I use all of this. My skin looks better and my mood is better. It smells fantastic. Those three reasons are enough for me to be convinced that this oil really is what it says it is. If I get the opportunity to ever try the Australian Sandalwood I will be sure to update this review with my thoughts on the comparison between that and this Indian Sandalwood.

In the spirit of full disclosure, I ordered this Ultra Pure Sandalwood Essential Oil (Santalum Album) – Brooklyn Botany – East Indian Sandalwood, 100% Pure, 1 fl. oz. Great for Skin, Hair Care, Acne Treatment & Aromatherapy on Amazon and received it for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
