There are many methods to open an essential oil bottle cap. It all depends on the type of cap on the essential oil bottle. In this blog post, we will talk about a few different methods on how to open essential oil bottle cap.

If there is a screw-top, unscrew it by turning it counterclockwise. If there is a pump top, press down and release. Sometimes there is a lever you have to squeeze as well. For dropper tops, gently squeeze the rubber bulb and release the pressure slowly to create suction until the top pops off. Keep reading to find out more!

Step by Step Guide: How To Open Essential Oil Bottle Cap

Step 1: Push Down and Turn Type Caps

There are two types of oil caps: push down and turn types.

1. Push Down Type Caps: The classic version is a rubber gasket with a hole in the center pressing down on the bottle lip, which keeps it sealed. It would help if you simply pressed on this gasket to release the seal and open the bottle cap.

2. Turn Type Caps: This newer version of the essential oil bottle cap has a textured ring you can grab onto with your fingertip. To release the seal and open the bottle cap, you need to twist this ring.

Step 2: Remove the Outer Label

After you’ve located the cap, peel off the outer label to remove the protective cover and expose the inner portion of the cap that needs to be pushed or twisted. In most cases, you’ll need to twist the inner portion of the cap to open the container. Sometimes, however, the inner portion of the cap will snap up or down to reveal a small opening in the center of the cap that can be used to insert the measuring cup.

Step 3: Push the Gasket Down to Access the Screw Top Threads

You’ll likely find a small, gasket-like rubber piece on the inside of your bottle cap with one side indented slightly. This part needs to be pushed down into the surface of your bottle to create an airtight seal that allows you to bring the oil with you wherever you go.

Find a Small, Gasket

In order to open a bottle with a screw top, you need to first push down on the gasket so that the threads on the inside of the bottle cap are exposed. Depending on how deep your indentation is, you may need to press quite hard or even use a flat head screwdriver to expose the threads fully.

Once you’ve successfully pressed down on the gasket to expose the inside of your bottle cap, screw the top of your essential oil onto this part. This should be done gently and carefully, as too much force can damage either your oil or your new bottle; both items are fragile!

Step 4: Twist Counterclockwise to Open

To open an essential oil container, you need to screw the top onto the bottle tightly. Then, use one hand to hold the top section and the other hand to turn the top section counterclockwise. This will break or loosen the seal that was created when the gasket was pressed down, and then you can open the container.

Step 5: Pour out the Oil

In order to use essential oils, you need to twist the top off the bottle. It is best to pour the oil onto a small plate or cup, as it can sometimes stain surfaces.

Step 6: Replace the Bottle Cap and Store

If you want to use oil, pour out the amount you need and then twist the top back on. Put the bottle back in its storage location. Oil should be stored in a room that is 70 degrees Fahrenheit.

Few Tips & Warnings

1. Do not use any sharp object or knife when opening oil bottles; it will tear and damage the label of your oils.

2. If you have a white cotton cloth under the oil spill, it will absorb any spilled oil on top of it, or if you want to wipe off some excess oil that may be left on the bottle opening just for safety purposes, then use a soft dry piece of white paper towel on top of it.

3. Be careful when opening not to drop any of the small glass beads or vase-shaped objects inside your bottle; they often break very easily.

4. Keep in mind that all oils should be stored away from direct sunlight and heat, do not store them directly on top of the heat source such as vents, heaters, fireplaces, ovens, etc.

5. If you drop your bottle, do not worry as it can be glued back together with superglue gel, be sure to wash the glass first before gluing.
