Household essential oils


For home use essential oil, our brand offers three sizes of bottles: 5ml, 10ml and 15ml, all of which are tiny in volume and filled in blue glass jar. Clear bottle should be avoided, despite the fact that glass does not react chemically with essential oils. We use blue glass bottles for filling since clear bottles can hasten the deterioration of essential oils owing to light catalysis.


TIPS: If you purchase a clear bottle of another brand, you can wrap it in paper or keep it in a light-proof box.
