Maybe you’ve experienced it before. The anticipation of an oil you’ve heard so much praise about finally arrives at your door. You eagerly tip the bottle to experience the magic within. Nothing happens. So you wait a bit. Maybe shake the bottle and stare at the dropper. Nothing. You think, “My goodness. There is something wrong with my oil!” Fear not, oil lovers. What you have in your hand is most likely an oil with a high viscosity.
Resins, roots, and absolutes tend to produce oil with a larger molecular structure. This makes them less volatile and hence, more aromatic over longer periods of time due to slow evaporation. It also means they are a little more difficult to work with. Basically, the thicker the oil, the more patience you will need to practice.
To better prepare you for your future purchases, we have compiled a list of our oils that may require some coaxing out of the bottle. It’s important to remember that essential oils can vary from batch to batch, so some oils may switch between these two categories.
If patience is not your forte, feel free to try out a few simple hacks to speed up the extraction of these oils from the bottle.
When removing the euro dropper, be sure to wear gloves or use a paper towel to avoid getting essential oils on your fingers or contaminating the opening. Are there any other tricks that you have tried with success? Let us know in the comments!
