Rollerball DIY Shenanigans


Tonight a favorite rollerball fragrance, became a non-favorite.

Over the next few days, my plan is to refill it with essential oils. But first, how to reuse the bottle and remove the rollerball without damaging it? A few internet searches got me zero useful results.

I got adventurous, grabbed a pair of kid-size safety round tip scissors (just in case), and scraped under the top of the bottle. Ta-da!

No promises on whether it would work for every rollerball, but for now a few drops of alcohol to rinse out any leftover fragrance. Do-it-yourselfers, take note. In a future post I’ll share about the blend of essential oils.
