Tea Tree Oil Issue - I know I'm not alone!

I know many of you use the BS/ACV method, so I'm hoping someone here can help: Why do all the essential oils have those handy dropper tops except tea tree!? I'm tired of it! Has anyone figured out a solution to this aside from a steady hand? They SUCK to try to count drops out of until they're almost half depleted, because the oil has to dribble all the way down the side of the bottle and drip off the bottom. Aside from being inconvenient, this creates a margin of error AND is wasteful! I know I'm not the only one who's dealt with this! Come on people, I've reached my breaking point! I was trying to buy a tiny dropper for a while, but I couldn't find anywhere that sold one the right size. Any ideas?

I got mine from a store called Earthfare in FivePoints Athens Ga.. Theirs have built in droppers.. Also they have teeny tiny droppers for purchase at Earthbound at like the malls out here..Very cheap and they work great.. I'm pretty sure they have em where you live, you could also try any shoppes that sell any oils, like burning or fragrance oil.. I'm sure they could hook you up.. I hope this helps! :)

If worst comes to worst...put your oil in another container and go to any pharmacy and buy a medicine dropper...not that difficult.

Thanks, Panterra. I was avoiding transferring containers for several reasons (laziness, sloppiness, etc), but I think that's what it's gonna come to (awesome name btw).

Decent idea Change - unfortunately, the necks of the Aura Cacia bottles are substantially bigger than that of the Desert Essence bottles.

SE, sorry if you answered this before, I certainly didn't see your response. I'm certain what I've been using is essential oils, despite the lack of a dropper top.

I always use one of the 3 on the left (usually eco-harvest, unless I can find organic)

i buy my oils at either whole foods or sprouts and both places have tea tree oil in dropper type bottles. you could always take an eye drops bottle like visine (cleaned out really well) and transfer your tea tree oil into there.

I ended up (carefully) transferring half of the liquid to my former (thus empty) bottle. They're pretty easy to count drops out of once they're less than about 2/3 full, so this solved my problem. Thanks yinz!
