Hello and welcome to the first in Ontario ... a refillery for your essential oil bottles!
This is a pilot project to measure whether there is a need and desire for an essential oil refillery in the area.
Phase 1 involves simply dropping off your empty essential oil bottle (s) to the Guelph Farmers’ Market on Saturdays, 7 a.m. - noon for pick-up the following Saturday.
Phase 2 will introduce a second drop-off location and time.
Phase 3 involves collecting, cleaning and redistributing used essential oil bottles to essential oil retailers & wholesalers (any brand). Please fill-out this survey to help me take this pilot project to the next stage. If you are an essential oil retailer or wholesaler and are interested in collaborating, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Where do I bring my bottles?
Guelph Farmers’ Market, 2 Gordon St. in Guelph Ontario, from 7 a.m. - noon.
How much does it cost?
Amazing news ... you save 10% off the retail price of your refill. For example, you will save $2.30 on your Joy refill ($23 for 5 ml) and $1 on your Lavender refill ($10 for 5 ml). You can find prices for our Aromatherapy Blends here and for our single essential oils here.
How do I pay?
You pay at the time you drop-off your bottles. We accept credit, debit and cash.
Do you clean my bottles?
At this time, we do not have the technology or capacity to clean your essential oil bottle (s). Your bottles are refilled and returned in the same condition they were received.
Do I have to clean my bottles?
We know it is very difficult to clean essential oil bottles; essential oils are hydrophobic so a simple soap and water wash does not work well. Before dropping off your bottle (s), please wipe the outside of your bottle with a natural disinfectant and place in a bag for drop-off.
Should I put my empties in a bag?
Yes, please. Once you have wiped down the outside of your bottle (s), please place in a ziplock or paper bag and include your name and contact info (e.g. email is best). You will receive your refills in the same bag.
Can I pick-up my refilled bottles on a different day than Saturday?
During Phase 1, you may porch pick-up from my home in Guelph. I will provide you with pick-up instructions when you drop-off.
Do you refill any size of bottle?
No. At this time, we have the capacity to refill essential oil bottles in 2, 5, 10 and 15 ml sizes only.
Do you refill other brands of essential oils?
Yes, with pleasure. The only caveat is the size of bottles listed above.
Where do you source your essential oils?
As a Certified Aromatherapy Health Professional, I have vetted +10 essential oil companies for quality indicators in the +7 years I have been working in the field. For more information about quality indicators, please read. I have been fortunate to find local to Ontario and local to Canada distillers for a number of tree essential oils.
I have more questions. Who do I ask?
