Have you noticed how difficult it is to open up a bottle of myrrh essential oil that hasn’t been used for a while? Because myrrh is a resin-based essential oil, it can get sticky as it oxidizes. When myrrh essential oil gets on the inside of the bottle cap, it can actually seal your bottle shut. We found a great way to prevent this from happening—coat the inside of the lid with fractionated coconut oil! To do this, just fill the cap with fractionated coconut oil so it covers everywhere inside. Then dump out the FCO, and screw the lid back on the bottle. No more sticky lid!
Extra Tip: If your lid is already sealed onto the bottle, you may want to have an extra lid on hand just in case you end up ruining your lid trying to get it off. Once you have the old cap and orifice reducer off, screw the new cap (with the new orifice reducer) on, and then remove the lid and coat it with fractionated coconut oil to prevent it from sticking again.
