In the United States, the essential oil industry is worth billions of dollars. While this indicates there is great potential, it also means there is a high level of competition. That is why your essential oil container must provide a positive first impression.
With a booming market for essential oil supplies and most essential oil packaging bottles having the same size and appearance, making your business and product stand out might seem challenging. A key element that plays a huge role in setting your product apart from your competition is using durable, professional-quality labels that match your container.
In this post, we lay down a few factors to consider when investing in new labels for your essential oils, from choosing water-resistant materials that will withstand the oil-based contents to developing an appealing design.
1. Label Size
The wrap-around label is the most common style of label for essential oil bottles. These allow you to print one label with all of the product information and wrap it around the bottle. To make these labels, you should first measure the circumference of your container. This can be accomplished by wrapping a thin strip of paper around the bottle, marking the overlap with a pen, and then using a conventional ruler to calculate the distance. We recommend adding a few inches to your dimension so that the label you choose will overlap and attach to itself.
After that, decide on the height of your labels. Do you want the label to wrap around the bottle in a small strip, or should it span from top to bottom? We suggest using taller labels and arranging the text vertically if you’re using 5 to 10 ml essential oil bottles. This will give you plenty of areas to highlight all of your product information.
If your container has a flat cap, try adding a circular label with the product’s name or your logo. Most typical essential oil bottle tops will accommodate a half-inch circular label.
Choosing the suitable label material should be a straightforward process. You’ll undoubtedly want to protect your label from damage caused by potential oil spills and dampness, so we recommend using weatherproof label materials.
There are a few different alternatives for you to choose from, each of which will give you a distinct appearance. Labels with a matte finish have a more natural appearance, a glossy finish may be used with nearly any design, and clear labels have a “no label” appearance.
When choosing which material to use, you should consider the type of bottle you’ll be using and ensure that your label design complements it.
Before applying your labels, make sure your bottles have been well washed and dried to ensure that no dust, debris, or oil is trapped behind the label.
Starting from the center of the label and going out to the edges will give you the straightest outcome for circular containers like essential oil bottles. When attaching the label, try to use the top or bottom of the bottle as a guide. The goal is to make your label as straight as that straight line.
Another excellent idea for applying labels is to start with one product and use it to establish the standard for the rest of the bottles. This will ensure that all of your products are consistent.
We hope these recommendations will assist you in generating professional-looking essential oil labels, whether you’re getting ready to label products for your essential oil company or simply designing a personalized label for a present.
