What kind of a container are the bulk oils shipped in, and how do I open these containers?
Posted by Eric Nowels on
All the bulk oils are packed in special aluminum bottles. To open these aluminum bottles take a pair of pliers and open the white plastic tab. Then there will be a clear plug with a ring. Don't use your fingers or pliers to pull the ring, gently use the pliers to remove the plug along the edge of the bottle, go slow and it is easy. Occassionally 4 and 8 ounce amber glass bottles might be used for the same sized oils ordered
You can replug the bottle, but ultimately you want to pour your oil into glass bottles. You can store it in the aluminum for a month or more as it is a non-reactive substance that all the distillers use for shipping, but glass is always most ideal for oils.
