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?
