When taking the time to make homemade body care recipes, do them justice by storing them in the best container possible. Aura Cacia DIY bottles were specifically designed for your homemade creations!

Tips for Storing Your DIY Beauty Creations


Amber glass protects essential oils from light and is more stable than plastic, lengthening shelf life. Each empty Aura Cacia bottle comes with a convenient label that includes a space to write the description of the homemade product or the date it was created. Here are a few ways you can use them:


  • The wide mouth amber jar is perfect for storing homemade products like body scrubs, body butters, hand salves and chest rubs.
  • The 2 ounce and 4 ounce amber bottles are ideal for storing perfume oil blends, facial serums and hair oils.
  • Roll-ons are perfect for natural perfumes, remedy recipes and on-the-go applications.
  • The amber bottle with mister cap is great for body mists, air freshening sprays and home cleaning sprays.

Make this chemical-free perfume oil for a fraction of the retail cost of one like it. Our favorite thing about this perfume oil is that it can be stored in many different containers — amber bottle, mist bottle or the roll-on stick — depending on how you intend to use it.
