Did you know… there are actually two holes on the top of the orifice of an essential oil?
👉The large hole in the center is an air hole. Essential oils do NOT drip from this hole.
👉Notice, there is a small “pin” size hole in the well of the orifice? This, my friends, is where the essential oil drops come from. Now, generally speaking, if you tip the bottle with the front of the label pointing up towards the ceiling, the essential oil hole will be down, directing the essential oil into your hand or diffuser or capsule.
Knowing the oil comes out of this hole can be SUPER helpful for the thicker oils like myrrh, rose, vetiver, etc. By the way, those oils are really thick or viscous. So much so that you might get a bottle and think it’s half gone. NOPE, it just needs to be warmed up with some body heat. Cup in your hands for a few minutes to warm up. Then you’ll be able to pour it out easily.
Some oils like Myrrh even get some build-up around the orifice. This is totally normal for thick oils. Just use some carrier oil to wipe it off… and expect it to happen again. 😂😂😂
Who knew this about the essential oil orifice/cap? ✋
