*The trick to getting the CBR out of the bottle is to hold the bottle upside down vertically, without shaking, and allow the oil to make its way through the tiny hole at the bottom of the stem of the orifice reducer (the plastic insert in the opening of the bottle). If you shake the bottle at all, it will slow the process as it prevents the oil from making progress on its journey. Once the oil has filled the stem of the orifice reducer, it will start to slowly exit the hole in the center of the orifice reducer. At that point, you will need to hold the bottle somewhat horizontally to control how many drops are coming out.

This technique will apply to all blends that come in the “Euro” style bottles (those with an orifice reducer).

The exception would be “neat” undiluted essential oils (lavender, lemon, peppermint, tea tree) that are very “thin” as the drops will come out so easily that you really need to begin with the bottle at the horizontal position so as not to dispense too much.  🙂
