As you know, I am not a great fan of shopping. However, there are still things that need to be purchased.
I needed more eucalyptus oil which is an ingredient of the homemade cleaner and wool wash that I make. It is also a useful disinfectant and aid for removing labels from jars and the resultant glue residue. Needless to say, I use a bit of it and was keen to buy a larger quantity than the 200ml bottle that I had recently emptied.
After some online searching we managed to source a 4 litre bottle in Australia. It is the same brand as the previous bottle and was significantly cheaper. In fact, I calculated that it cost about 60% of the cost of buying an equivalent volume in 200ml bottles from one of the major supermarkets.
Although it is in a plastic container, this quantity will last me a lifetime and I will not be buying any more 200ml plastic bottles of eucalyptus oil.
I understand that many people would not be interested in buying this sort of quantity as there is a significant financial investment as well as storage issues. Neither of these are a particular problem for me so I am happy to have been able to buy a large quantity of eucalyptus oil.
If you live in my vicinity and would like a smaller portion of this eucalyptus oil, please let me know and I will let you know all of the details including pricing which will be the same as I paid. I am not doing this to make a profit but simply to give others the opportunity to access eucalyptus oil with minimal packaging in quantities that are appropriate to your needs.

There are a couple of hyperlinks in the second paragraph to the ‘recipes’ for cleaning products that I make using eucalyptus oil.
