Dropper bottles are very handy to store liquid herbal mixtures in. People with allergies, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, ME and a host of other auto immune diseases find that they can often get little help from the conventional medical system.
Amber dropper bottles can be used for liquid herb, flower essences, distilled water, inks, and any potion y
Storing Liquid Herbs and Potions
Many turn to natural remedies to alleviate some of their symptoms. Storage of these is sometimes a problem. Where can you get the bottles, those little dropper bottles, to dole out small quantities of liquid. Easy handling in important. Safety is important. Safe storage of these precious liquids is important.
Herbs, flower essences, liquids and potions last longer in good condition when they are stored in brown glass bottles. These are called amber bottles in the trade but BROWN Bottles is good enough.
Using the Droppers
These bottles come with their own glass dropper. The dropper is clear with no markings on it. The droppers vary in length according to the size of the bottle. They hold 1-2ml depending on their size.
To get the liquid into the glass dropper, squeeze the red rubber bulb at the top of the dropper. This expels the air from the dropper. When you let the red bulb go the liquid will rise in the glass tube so long as the open end of the dropper is below the liquid in the bottle. Sometimes you need to squeeze and release the red bulb a few times to get the required amount of liquid in the dropper.
These droppers do not reach to the bottom of the bottles so to access the lower liquid, just tip the bottle to the side and the liquid will come closer to the dropper.
These bottles are used by naturopaths and homeopaths worldwide so you know you are getting the right bottles for your precious liquids.
These dropper bottles are not suitable for aromatherapy oils as the oil will destroy the red bulb. There are black tops made from nitrile which can be used for aromatherapy oils. Aromatherapy oils are usually dispensed from different bottles which I will explain at another time.
