Have you ever wondered how many drops of oil was in a 5, 10, or 15 ml bottle of essential oil? Now you do not have to guess, this graphic makes it easy to know the approximate number of drops that are in each of the typical essential oil bottle sizes.
Why are the measurements approximate? Precise measurement would depend upon the viscosity (thickness, if you will) of the essential oil. Therefore, all measurements are approximate.
The measurements are used, mainly, for creating lotions, soaps, etc. Therefore, it is not crucial (or life altering) if they are off by a few drops (give or take). Please work with a medical professional if you will be using essential oil measurements for anything other than DIY beauty projects. This reference is not for that purpose.
For Quick Reference:
5 ml bottle of essential oil contains approximately 83-85 drops
10 ml bottle of essential oil contains approximately 166-170 drops
15 ml bottle of essential oil contains approximately 250-260 drops
Happy Measuring for all of our DIY fans out there!
