My essential oil bottle won’t open, I can’t get the cap off!

If you have purchased Oshadhi oils before you will know that all of our essential oils come with a safety cap. Very occasionally we find that the caps can be difficult to open.

If the cap is clicking rather than engaging the mechanism and turning then don’t force it so that it clicks round and round. This can damage the mechanism and make it more difficult to open.

Usually it is possible to open the bottle by following these simple steps. You’ll need some rubber gloves, or a tea towel or cloth, a mug or cup and a kettle.

– Place your essential oil bottle in the cup, upside down.

– Add boiling water from the kettle, just enough to cover the cap.

– Leave the bottle for a few minutes to ensure it is thoroughly warm.

– Wearing rubber gloves (or using your towel or cloth), hold the bottle, firmly grip the cap, press down and turn the bottle.

If you have tried this and still can’t open you bottle then please return the bottle to us and we will open it for you (we will refund the postage cost, of course). Please contact us to arrange your return.
