The best place to find containers for homemade beauty products is on amazon.com. You will find a lot of different types of containers such as lip balm containers, plastic or glass jars, amber glass bottles with a glass eye dropper or even aluminium tins. There are a few wholesalers out there but I found that that they are not as cheap as on amazon and there is no fast delivery available. With amazon prime, you can get your order within 48h and I am always mesmerized of the efficiency and rapidity of my orders. if you live in Canada, if the product is available on amazon.ca, make sure you order from there to avoid paying custom fees or having your package held up at customs.
Containers For Homemade Beauty Products – Body butter and creams
You can opt for plastic or glass jars for your homemade body butter, even mason jars can do the trick! My preference is amber or cobalt blue glass containers. While there is a little more expensive than plastic, they last longer and are much better for the environment and for the product. If you choose plastic, make sure there is no BPA.
A cheap option for container is round aluminium tins that are cost efficient and lighter than glass jars. They are great for travel!
Make sure the glass jar you use are made of high quality, food-safe glass and acrylic, BPA and lead free..If the glass is tinted, the bottles should be 100% tinted glass, never painted.
It is the best way to protect essential oils from UV since essential oils are photosensitive.

- Cobalt Blue 1oz & 2oz Glass Straight Sided Jars
- 10ML High Quality Green Frosted Container Jars
- Silver Metal Steel Tins
Containers for Essential Oil blends or perfumes
You can use amber glass roll on bottles to keep you essential oil perfume oil. It makes a great gift and is perfect to travel or fit in your purse.
There is also some twisted look roll on perfume bottles available on the market. Some comes with silver or gold caps depending on your taste.
If you want to keep essential oil already blended, the best choice is to use cobalt or amber glass bottle with a glass eye dropper. Never use plastic to keep essential oils as they are corrosive and will eat the plastic eventually.
It’s also important to use colored glass to preserve essential oils from loosing their properties and health benefits as they get damaged from UV light.
If you are working with aromatherapy, for mist spray, the best choice of container is refillable blue glass bottle with a fine mist dispenser.
Here are my recommended containers for essential oils blend:
