Sustainability is part of the foundation in which we base all of our decisions at Olfaction Experiences. From our packaging to our ingredients— we seek out the most ethical, earth-friendly products to create and contain our aromatherapy. Our motto is that what is good for mother earth, is good for us too! We’re happy to share our favorite tips and tricks on how to clean and upcycle our Mood Scent bottles to extend the life and usefulness of our packaging.

 

How to Clean Our Aromatherapy Spray Bottles

  1. Peel off the label by hand. If it doesn’t come off easily, give it a soak in warm water to loosen it up.
  2. Remove the lid.
  3. Fill a pot or large bowl with hot, soapy water, and place your container pieces inside.
  4. Let soak for 5 to 10 minutes.
  5. scrub each piece using mini-brushes, if possible.
  6. Rinse thoroughly with warm water.
  7. If you wish to further sanitize the bottles, you can put them into a pot of distilled water and boil for 10 to 15 minutes. Leave to air dry in a clean environment. **Distilled water is not necessary, but since it does not contain minerals, it will help you avoid unsightly splotchy water marks.

 

How to Clean, Reuse, & Upcycle Our Bottles

Fun & Creative Ways to Reuse & Upcycle Our Packaging

  1. Mister for Your Plants. Fill your cleaned bottle with water and mist your houseplants to keep them healthy and thriving.
  2. Mini Flower Vase. You can use a single spray bottle for sleek décor or place several together to make a creative centerpiece.
  3. Aromatic Reed Diffuser: Fill your bottle with a light-scented carrier oil and essential oil blend of choice. Then, insert reed sticks or bamboo skewers.
  4. Face Toner or Hair Product Spritzer: Fill the bottle with your favorite bulk rose water (check your local co-op in their bulk section!) or make your own leave-in hair mist with equal parts water and apple cider vinegar.
