  1. Hi, I’m struggling to find a good size foaming pump container in plastic (also not a fan of glass in shower with small children). Any ideas where to find them?

  2. Hi Is there a particular foaming pump bottle you recommend? As I’ve read it’s best to use glass bottles with essential oils but don’t want to use glass in the shower.

    • Essential oils in the ratios that I use are fine in plastic containers. When we are told not to store in plastic, it is referring to undiluted or potent ratio’s. Think about the products sold by major essential oil companies, such as shampoo and cleaning concentrates – they’re often in plastic packaging. The type of plastic matters also, and PET (no.1) and HDPE are the safest. While I always prefer glass, sometimes it isn’t the most practical. Krissy x

  3. Hi Krissy, I’m planning on making this body wash but need to ask, (probably silly question) do you use the peppermint and orange oils together or is it one or the other? Thank you.
