Fast and pretty storage…

We have been using essential oils as a part of our health care regimen for about a year now. I compare essential oils to really good coffee: once you try it, you will never settle for the crappy stuff again. It obviously is just a part of our family apothecary, but I think it’s our favorite part. We go through lavender like nobodies business. Alas, all that time, my oils have lived in their delivery box. I know, I know, it’s pretty and all, and somewhat practical, but unwieldy. You can buy a divided box from one of the companies for about fifteen dollars, but I knew I could do better. I found the box at Michael’s for about $3, and it was pretty on its own, but I’m in a “washi all the things!” mood lately! And when I get bored, swap it out. Simple, pretty, beautiful, practical.  I’ll take that any day of the week.

    I found your post! 🙂 Thanks for telling me about it on Instagram. I think I would like something with individual dividers?? I’ve tried several open containers like this and I end up with them falling over a lot. I had one spill that was quite a mess which leads me to look for something else. I guess if the box was perfectly full it would work. 🙂 Love your blog!

      I’ve seen a few where they just took some thin cardboard (even cereal boxes work) to cut and make dividers. Might that work, even in your current storage?

Tell me what's on your heart~
