Essential Oil Pipettes
Essential Oil Pipettes (also known as Transfer Pipettes and Transfer Pipets) are essential oil droppers sold in sets of one dozen (12). Use the 3 ml graduated pipette when you need precise measurements. These small pipettes hold 3 ml and is graduated in 1/2 ml. increments. The 15 ml size is great for filling essential oil bottles. Each “squeeze” holds about 7-8 ml, so you can fill essential oil bottles quickly. The tip of the micro-pipette is quite fine and will fit through the holes in our metal aroma inhalers, the dropper top of our 2 ml bottles, and through the “breathing” hole (not the one in the middle) of the dropper inserts in our 5ml, 10ml, 15ml & 30ml essential oil bottles.
Using Essential Oil Droppers
These are normally used with larger bottles of essential oils that don’t have Euro-dropper inserts. If you’re going to reuse these droppers, it best to use it with only one essential oil. You can attach the dropper to the bottle with a rubber band but do it with the tip down so that oils want accumulate in the bottom (bulb) of the dropper. But, do not sit the bottles of oil with attached downward pointing droppers on good furniture. Many essential oils will discolor or dissolve finishes and paint on furniture.
Never use the dropper bottles that are often used for herbal tinctures for essential oils, i.e. the ones with the black rubber bulb that sits on top of the bottle. The fumes from many essential oils will begin to dissolve the black rubber and contaminate the essential oils even if the oil doesn’t touch it.
