Where to Buy Mist Bottles for DIY Mixtures

|

For the past few months I’ve been faithfully using my Homemade Glycerin Skin Moisturizer and have really liked how it works on my skin. I did learn, however, that I much preferred a mist bottle for applying it to my skin rather than a spray bottle. A mist bottle gives the right amount of application and control when spraying this mixture which is a liquid consistency.

But when I went in search of a good mist bottle, most of the time I couldn’t find anything. At best, I was only finding little travel size mist bottles which I have been using and continually refilling.

And then – TA DA – I found big mist bottles! Where? At a beauty supply store for hair stylists!

The beauty supply store I went to (Sally Beauty Supplies) had a nice little section of empty plastic bottles in different sizes and varieties (including an 8 oz mist bottle). The mist bottles were a couple of bucks each. Oh happy day! It must be that hair stylists use the mister bottles for something they’re doing . . . . I don’t know what but I’m glad they’re doing it.

This week when I made some more glycerin skin moisturizer, I could put the whole batch into my new bottle The 1/4 cup of glycerin, plus 1 cup of filtered water, fit perfectly!

I even made myself a cute little label.

So if you’ve been on a wild goose chase looking for mist bottles for your do-it-yourself mixtures, check around and see if you have a beauty supply store nearby. It could be the solution for you too!

  1. Thank you for sharing! I want to share the recipe for my homemade make up remover wipes:
    Place cloths in container. Mix together the following ingredients, pour over cloths and shake gently to saturate.

    2 cups warm water
    2 tbsp. olive oil (lifts makeup)
    2 drops tea tree oil (anti-bacterial, great for skin, and prevents mold)

    These will remove just about any makeup, even waterproof mascara. Surprisingly, you don’t have to wash with soap afterward: olive oil is non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores) and, like tea tree oil, is actually both a useful acne treatment as well as a great moisturizer.

  2. Zombiemommy – Yes, this has been the only moisturizer I have been using lately and so far this winter my skin has not dried out nearly as much as it usually does! I have not tried anything with coconut oil, but I do know that glycerin has different properties than oils and absorbs into the skin better so you might find this glycerin mixture a nice alternative.

  3. Thanks for posting the comment about your dog treats on my blog. Mine turned out great – at first! It only took a few days for them to turn moldy…so weird! I really don't understand why! They were totally dry and crisp when I took them out of the oven. I will try your recipe next!
