A place for my little essential bottles

+8
Answered
I've started collecting lots of little bottles of essential oils, in the 2 to 4 ounce sizes, mostly glass. Where ever I store them, they fall all over the place. Does anybody have some tips? I'd like them to just stand there, and not tip over when I'm trying to find the one I need. So, they also need to be easy to read, or at least be able to label the dividers,

    I bought little silverware organizer trays. They are about 3 inches wide - typically used for knives. Then I keep them all in a little bin.

    Thank you @Diane. I've got one of the little separate trays similar to that and store them upright. Everytime I remove one, the rest tip or tilt. Do you use any kind of divider> Or, is it possible for you to post a pic? I know it's a hassel, but I just can't get the visual. thnks!

    duh! I was just looking at my silverware tray. Probably lay the bottles down! I get it! better late than never.

    I bought the tins from Spark Naturals but only the 5ml bottles fit BUT when you get it you have to pop out the foam to put the bottles in so I wedge those little foam pieces behind the bottles that won't fit in it laying down. I like it better than having them stand up because I can see what they are easier.

    @Diane, Thanks for that site. looks like they have some nice blends there, and I love the little tins!

    If you use the code "lavender" it will give you a discount. It ends up at least paying for the shipping!

    Use a lazy Susan and place the bottles facing towards you so when it spins, you can read each one easily. Hope this helps :-D

    Glue those little sponges that they put your toes in when getting a pedicure, (for keeping your toes apart), onto the back wall of a spare medicine cabinet or shelf. The little bottles never fall over and doesn't really add to the bulk of space that the bottles take up already. And because it's sponge, if there's a bottle that is fatter than others - you can simply cut the sponge to make a better fit. : )
