Finding a Cheaper Way to Store Voodoo Essential Oils

 

 

Do you know that some people on Etsy are charging 60 bucks plus for racks to hold your voodoo magic?

Ahem, I mean essential oils.

I do love Etsy but some shops are pissing me off with the prices they are charging.

125 smackaroos for a personalized family sign is NEVER EVER HAPPENING.

I am all for small businesses but seriously have you not heard of Pinterest?

DO NOT PAY 125 DOLLARS OR MORE FOR A PERSONALIZED ANYTHING UNLESS IT IS A COFFIN.

So when I went hunting for ideas to store my ever-growing essential oil collection, I headed to Pinterest for ideas to make my own.

 

I really liked this one.

 

How to store essential oils: Make your own Essential Oil Wall Shelf #essentialoils:

 

Until I read add strips to bind boards together.
Me and building stuff is like me and a buffet restaurant. Never the twain shall meet.

Two words: sneeze guard.

Shiver.

For $44, you could have this really cool looking display.

Then I realized:

-I don’t want to pay 44 dollars (two bottles of VERY SMALL essential oils, by the way) for a rack to display my oils

-I don’t know that I want to display my oils. Just keep them together neatly.

-but if I need them to be out and about on my counters, I do want them to look nice.

-there is WAY too much thinking involved in this first world voodoo health word problem.

 

So I did what I do best when I have conundrums: I eat my feelings. Then I went to Goodwill. Or maybe it was the other way around. It wasn’t clear at that point.

Pass the clarity oil, or whatever it’s called.

BREATHE.

 

Goodwill will calm me! I don’t need no stinking oils!

Except for the Thieves. I do need Thieves. 

 

 

 

Originally I bought this because I had a vision in the aisles of a very busy Goodwill on a Sunday morning.

This would make a perfect essential oil holder!

Ignore the middle candle holder thing, which by the way is the weirdest candle holder known to man because of one thing: flammability.

WHO THE HELL PUTS A CANDLE HOLDER IN THE MIDDLE OF A WOODEN BOX?

Correct me if I am wrong but that’s called a campfire.

Then I got it home and couldn’t remove the candle holder.

So I set it on fire.

Just kidding.

I’m saving it for a bonfire in the summer. 

Ooh, look what else I got that day!

 

 

A tray!! What? You get excited about leggings with cats on them, I get excited about wooden trays.

Tomato, tomahtoe.

 

 

 

A cool plastic medallion with no purpose!!

It isn’t orange anymore.

I know you were concerned.

I will be writing about these in another post because I know how you can appreciate follow through.

 

So then, as I was carrying my kindling candle holder for 99 cents, I happened to turn around and see this:

 

 

 

 Essential Oil containment like no other.

Not the green cake stand but the wooden bowl like thing.

FOCUS.

 

I think it might have been one big ass salad bowl.

Or a wooden bong.

Not sure.

But it was perfect for what I needed it for.

 

I took it off of the counter because I don’t need to be reminded of my voodoo addiction all damn day.

 

 

My beautiful green metal cart

 

Much better.

 

 

Head here to stock up on your essential oils. I love Spark Naturals and you will too.

I love to write about my family, John Hughes, tacos and Bruce Hornsby. Not necessarily in that order.
