Aroma Bottle Story

Aroma Bottle History

Perfume and incense made from aromatic plants (fruits, flowers, herbs, seeds, trees, spices and resins) can be traced nearly from the beginning of time. They were used by kings and priests who used them spiritually during prayer and to embalm the dead. They were used for medicinal purposes and brought refreshment when Kings and Queens went out in public during a time when opens sewers were found in the streets. In addition, fragrance was simply for the pleasure of the aroma to individuals. The containers that held the fragrant substance were made from alabaster, stone, earthenware, metal, linen and glass. Personal aroma bottles began in the days when dainty bottles carried a small amount of fragrance.  Perfumes weren’t worn as we do today but rather sniffed when one came upon unpleasant smells in the local town or village. (Remember bathing was only for special occasions; running water in your own home wasn’t available. Aren’t you grateful for America and running water!) With the advent of carrying small bottles of fragrance, many would flaunt their regal importance with gem adorned containers. The small and decorative containers of personal scent allowed a lady to refresh her perfume if she happened upon a gentleman who she desired to please. When corsets were in fashion, these small vials could also be used to carry smelling salts or vinegars, as the tight-lacing sometimes brought on spells of dizziness. Perfume bottle pendants were primarily worn as necklaces but it was also fashionable to wear them hanging from a pin on your clothing or as part of a chatelaine. Herbs and resins were also carried in a pouch that was worn around the neck to combat insects, bring refreshment during travel and as one needed (desired). Today we can wear our favorite essential oil or natural perfumes in Aroma Bottles sharing in the ancient personal aroma experience and using them as we have need of today.  Your Aroma Bottle is great for travel, personal pleasure and stressful situations. We recommend only using 5 to 20 drops of your favorite aroma in your Aroma Bottle; the cork acts as a diffuser.
