Essential oils have really taken off. I know many people use them medicinally and others use them purely for enjoyment. I think they are GREAT in a diffuser for making my house smell amazing.
But I think it’s easy to end up with SO MANY oils and no where to put them. Keeping them stored safely is important so they won’t break and are easily found. I decided to put together a quick tutorial on how to make an essential oil storage box. These would make great gifts too for a friend who loves oils.
- Wood box (I measured my tallest bottles, then checked out the wood boxes at the craft store)
- Small wood pieces to use for dividers.
- Something to cut the wood with.
- Optional: Silhouette Machine (or Cricut) with 651 Vinyl (permanent adhesive)
- Alternatively: Purchase an essential oil storage box, then decorate it.
How to Make an Essential Oil Storage Box
Check out this simple video or skip below to the photo tutorial.
The small box is perfect for holding essential oils, but it needed dividers.
Cut a thin piece of wood for a divider.
Now you need to cut some smaller pieces for the opposite direction. You can place them and situate your essential oil bottles, then mark where they’ll go. Remove the divider pieces from the box.
Use glue to attach the divider pieces where you marked.
Paint the divider, as well as the box.
Then add a label for the front, if desired.
