If you make your own beauty products, you need to find the right containers for them. Finding containers for homemade beauty products is easy if you know what to look for and where to look.
Homemade beauty products using essential oils have many benefits. For starters, you can use all natural ingredients that are good for your skin instead of exposing yourself to all types of harsh chemicals.
Many essential oils will help to cleanse and rejuvenate the skin and they may help to prevent or reduce premature aging. So if you want clean, fresh and beautiful looking skin, you should make your own homemade creams and lotions.
Best Containers For Homemade Beauty Products
I’ll be honest: if I can, I always re-purpose old containers I saved. I have lots of glass jars of all sizes that can be used for bath salts and sugar scrubs. Then, smaller jars form jelly are perfect for lotion or toothpaste. But sometimes you just need something specific. Here’s a list of my favorite containers for homemade beauty products.
Glass Roller Bottles
Glass roller bottles are great for storing homemade perfumes. They make it easy to apply the product without wasting any of it and they’re so convenient that you can carry them with you everywhere you go.
The amber or dark colored bottles are the best because they help to maintain the integrity of the oils but you can use the clear ones if you prefer. Just store your perfumes in a dark place.

Small Glass Mason Jars
The small mason jars are some of the best containers you can use when working with essential oils and they are usually very cheap. They work great for all types of creams, lotions and body scrubs.
The screw-on tops are airtight so they help to prevent spillage. They also make storing your beauty products easy so you can make extra to use later.
The glass jars are normally the best choice when working with essential oils because the oils can’t break down the glass like they can plastic. However, if you do a lot of traveling, then you’ll also want a small supply of plastic jars. You won’t have to worry about these breaking and spilling your beauty supplies all over your suitcase when you’re traveling, so they’re much more convenient than glass.

Lip Balm Containers
Lip balms are a very popular beauty product, which is probably why they make special containers just for them. You have two main options to choose from when storing your lip balm. You can use the tubes, which are very similar to the commercial brands or you can use the small plastic lip balm containers.
