How to Reuse Essential Oil Vials
Hi this is Karen from Holistically Engineered. Today, I am going to show you how to reuse essential oil bottles. After my essential oil bottles are starting run out, I like to clean them and re-use them. This is good for making specific blends or anything like my allergy blend: lemon, lavender and peppermint. I like to put that in a roll-on bottle so I can add the oils together and make a blend out of it. Basically, if I have any oil that won't come out of the dropper, I'll add it to the new bottle and then I'll peel off of the label. You can peel off the label as much as you can, and as much as will come off. And then, I'll remove the cap and the dropper. I will put them in a bowl of warm/hot water; not boiling anything, but nice and hot. Sometimes I'll add some thieve soap or another natural soap like castile soap. I will let it sit in the warm water: caps, droppers, and bottles for about five to ten minutes. Then you can scrap off the label. It's a lot easier to scrape it off. If there is still some residue you can't seem to get off, lemon oil is great for getting off any of the sticky residue. After that, I'll dry off the outside of the bottles just to make sure all the labels are off and then I'll air-dry the inside to make sure the water is dry and there is no excess water when I am adding oils again. The same thing for that caps and dropper, I'll let those completely air-dry before I use them again. Basically, you will have a clean bottle. This one has a roller cap on it. It's got lavender, lemon, and peppermint in it; but basically it's all clean. You could add your own label if you want to. That's basically it. Easy, easy, easy. Thanks for watching.

How to Make Glass Vials and Pendants
Okay, today I want to show you how to put together these glass vials and pendants. You have small glass vials. They come with a plastic stopper and a silver metal cap. You put whatever you want on inside the vial. In this case, I'm using mustard seeds. You can glue the plastic stopper into the top of the vial, press it in very hard; they're very difficult to get in. Then you have to let them sit and dry. After the glue dries, you need to take a knife and trim off the edges before you can glue the cap on. An easier way to do it is to take you vial, put whatever you want on the inside of it, take your cap, and a hot glue gun, and put a drop of glue in the bottom of the cap. After you get a drop of glue in it, quickly stick it on the on the vial, push it down on the top of the vial, and twist it a little bit. It will seal it water-tight, and glue it right on and it is ready to go. For our charms, which have a glass vial on the inside, you do the same thing. You put whatever you want on the inside of it. You take the small rubber stopper and stick it in top of the vial, push it all the way down inside. Take the vial, stick it inside the charm. Take the bigger stopper, put some glue on the outside of it, and stick it in the bottom of the charm, push it all the way up in, and you have a charm. You hang it on a necklace, keychain, whatever you want to do it. For those small charms, I have only one stopper come with it. You put your items on the inside the glass vial, take a drop a glue and glue the stopper onto the vial, push it all the way down into the glass vial. Take and put glue on top of the stopper, stick it inside of the charm, push it all the way down inside the charm. Let it dry, and then it will stay inside the charm and you'll have your charm just like this. So, that's how you put charms together. Stick want you want inside of it. You can put oil inside of them. You can put colored water; people put all kinds of items on the inside. They are very easy to make. The come in many different shapes and sizes. I'm just having fun.
