I've been lurking for a long time and I've learned a lot here. Finally decided to join up. I'm mostly into cp soap now but looking to expand my horizons.

Question: Has anyone found a use for those NDA 1000 ml metal bottles that their EO comes in? I empty them into the amber 500 ml bottles as soon as my packages arrive, but those bottles look so cool I can't throw them out.

Thank you Susie!

I guess I should say something about myself... as a proper intro ;)

I work in IT industry, but love all things creative and perhaps a bit dangerous. In fact, it was the movie Fight Club that sparked my soap making curiosity! Haha

My hobbies include mountain/trail biking, guitar, IPSC (better not to ask what that is) and of course soap making. I love the feeling of being more self-sufficient and knowing where the things I use and eat really come from. So I'm also into gardening, cured sausage and salami making, and preserving all nature of things.

welcome fellow Canadian :)
I do not think you can use it for lotions, they are aluminium ?

Hi Gerry,

Welcome to the forum!

NDA aluminum bottles - Vases - you could cord or wire wrap, add decorative beads, feathers and so on. If you can cut metal, cut for a lower profile vase, spoon holder, pen holder, etc.

Thanks for the ideas. Maybe I'll get into the re-purposed NDA aluminum bottle business! Haha

Welcome to the forum. Those bottles should work well for bath salts.

Gerry - Maybe you could. People re-purpose bottles, etc. They might work as candle holders, too.

I like the bath salts idea! I'll have to try it.
