I was wondering what bottles/jars you use to store your homemade facial cleansers, and moisturizers?

i wholesale order mine. and it depends on the item what kind of bottle it get. if i am doing an aromatherapy mist or essential oil roller perfume i get a special plastic or glass. if i am making a tincture i get an amber or blue glass bottle with dropper.<br>
i have a couple of places that i order from because the minimum is low and they have quick shipping. here is one <a href="http://www.rusticescentuals.com/lip_balm_supplies.html" target="_blank">http://www.rusticescentuals.com/lip_balm_supplies.html</a>

I repurpose other toiletry product containers (plastic for areas where breakage is a concern - showers and sinks where kids/guests use them) and I repurpose supplement containers (dark glass with various tops - droppers, mist, screw-top).<br><br>
I recently placed and received my first order for new containers. I purchased one foam pump container for our powder room and the rest of the items were glass. I needed itty bitty glass sizes for EOs. I repoured and relabeled half my EOs into smaller vials to preserve them longer. I am in the midst of making a travel kit and first aid kit, also. I got two roller-type glass tubes (lip gloss type) for emergency EOs - one for my purse and one for the hiking pack. I also purchased glass containers for my personal toiletries since I am not concerned about breaking them. Scents last longer in glass containers and homemade concoctions stay fresher longer, too.<br><br>
I order from <a href="http://www.sunburstbottle.com/" target="_blank">Sunburst</a> in NoCal. The prices were very reasonable (much cheaper than stores around here and less than several web stores I checked) and they had no minimums on the items I wanted. Shipping was kind of high, but I think that is pretty normal these days. I didn't have any contact with anyone, but I didn't need to. My order arrived in just two days and it was in perfect condition and was exactly what I ordered. If I only needed a few items, I would purchase from a local store and pay a bit more for each item. Since I had waited until I needed more than 20 items (total), I didn't mind paying the shipping costs and it still worked out to be much cheaper than a local store.

Let's see....nothing really fancy....I'm just getting started....<br><br>
~ eye oil blend<br>
~ owie EO+oil blend (used it today for first time when DD hurt herself at the park; she loved it)<br>
~ zit zapper EO blend<br>
~ face wash and moisturizer (I have been mixing various purchased products to customize a product for my skin since it has gotten so much nicer. I no longer need my "oily" skin products, so I've been adding various ingredients to create more appropriate products. Fun!)<br>
~ body products/hair care (I have been playing around mixing scents and products for practice. Fun!)
