Essential Oil Roller Bottles - Tinted Glass vs. Painted

There are a ton of different essential oil roller bottles out on the market now days. I know I've personally reviewed quite a few from various sellers on Amazon. On the overall the are pretty much the same. Bottle, lid, roller ball, I think you get the gist of it. However when you actually get them and start to check them out up close you will see there really is a difference between them. For instance some have a plastic roller ball, some have metal. Some have glass you can see through, and some have a coating on the outside making it solid colored. There are definitely benefits, and drawbacks to the various differences between bottles. But what it really comes down to in my opinion is preference. It depends on what you're putting into the bottles as well as what you'll be using it for.

Some people say they prefer one kind of bottle over another, and some say they are all the same so it doesn't matter. I am actually one of those people that has a preference. I prefer the bottles that are either clear or tinted glass because I can see exactly how much is left in the bottle. I do like the painted bottles and think they are very pretty though.

Another thing to consider besides the coloring of the bottles is the size. There are also many different sizes of bottles out there too!

  1. Very informative! I never realized there were so many factors to consider.

  2. I want the colored glass to keep light off my essential oils.
