Glass Apothecary Jars Giveaway

It's time for the January 2020 Thrifty Style Team post and this month each blogger is giving something awesome away.

This Giveaway has Ended - thank you to everyone who entered!

To enter each giveaway simply click on the links for the individual blogs at the bottom of this post and follow that blogger's instructions.

I'm giving away a brand new kit of 6 recycled glass apothecary bottles with corks and a bag of Magnesium crystals so you can make your own magnesium oil.

The kit is from The Magnesium Co. and if you've never heard of the health benefits of Magnesium oil you can check them out and I believe if you sign up for their email list they will send you a free PDF with lots of great tips and information.

The kit contains these glass apothecary jars which are great for crafting and display.

I like to use and reuse them.

This past Christmas I covered one of the jars in school glue and heavily sprinkled it while wet with Epsom salt.

When the glue dried, the jar looked like it was covered with snow. The beauty of that project was that when the holidays were over, I simply soaked the bottle in warm water and then washed it and it was good as new.

You could also fill the bottles with buttons and ribbons for displaying in a craft room or with herbs and spices for use in your kitchen. Add a label and you are all done.

I'll be adding more pictures of what I have done with mine to give you some ideas but I would also love to hear your ideas.

How To Enter This Giveaway

Rules for entering:

You must be a resident of the continental United States due to the prize being shipped directly to you.

Leave a comment below telling me what you would do with this kit. Either an idea for displaying the bottles, crafting with them or how you could use Magnesium Oil.

One winner will be chosen at random on Friday, 01/17/2020, and notified via the email associated with the comment and will have 48 hours to respond with shipping information. If I don't hear back within 48 hours of notification being sent, a new winner will be chosen and given the same timeframe to email me back.

It's that easy! Good Luck and be sure to enter the other wonderful giveaways!

  2. I love these! I am going to make Lemoncello and these would be perfect!

  3. Kim Gaede says:

    What a great way to display different colored waters, infused oils, the possibilities are endless. I had never though of using Epson salt to decorate the outside of the jars. What a cool idea.

    1. Sally Smith says:

      They are so awesome!! Not sure what i would put in them , they are so neat already. Thank you so much for your great blog!!

      1. Nia Donovan says:

        They are so awesome!! Not sure what i would put in them , they are so neat already. Thank you so much for your great blog!!

        1. I'd used these to make the magnesium oil. My doctor just prescribed magnesium as a migraine inhibitor!

        2. stephanie sheridan says:

          The jars are so cute and would use them in my craft room. Include something cute inside.

      2. I've been kicking around the idea of making a line of natural health care products (soaps, tooth powder, deoderant, elderberry syrup, etc). I would make the oil just as intended.

    2. Hi I would love to display dried flowers in these for deco on my dining table!

  4. Linda Colomonico says:

    Very interested in the crystals but for now, I would love to dry some of the mint I'm growing on a windowsill and use the containers for spices.

  5. First and foremost I would love to try the magnesium for tinnitus. It started for me about a year ago after hearing loud music in a hiit class several times a week. I had to start wearing ear plugs, but unfortunately the tinnitus is still there. I’m also under a lot of stress with my aging parents being in and out of the hospital lately so anything to help combat my stress would be greatly appreciated. Thirdly, I see jars for a spooky laboratory at Halloween time! There are great printables for those types of jars on the internet. So I would love to expand my laboratory display next Halloween! ?

  6. Amy Templeton says:

    I started an herb garden, and these would be perfect for storing not only the tinctures I'd like to try and make, but also the dried herbs themselves. I can just imagine how beautiful they will look lined up on my shelf!

  7. sharon Hudson says:

    I just love these jars and would put tall seeded eucalyptus stems in three of them and place them on my buffet table. The other three I would place on my open shelves in the kitchen and put them on a shelf with other clear jars I have of old mason jars. It would make a nice collection. Thank you!

  8. Helen Ward says:

    I already use glass for storing spice mixtures, beans, pasta, and other dry foods.. Glass is so durable and beautiful.

  9. These would be a fun way to add color to any room but most likely my kitchen.

  10. Love these jars! Thanks for sharing the tip about soaking off the epsom salts after winter crafting. I have a very large picture window in my eat in kitchen area and I love to put glass jars with succulents, colored water, etc and they look amazing with the sun streaming in and sparkling off the glass.

  11. I work in an elementary school, so putting some sea glass in one, make a "settle your glitter bottle" for another and then I think I would put sequins in some. Something that the students would enjoy looking at.

  12. Definitely want to try the magnesium, I have tinnitus and fibromyalgia. I would enjoy using the jars for dried herbs and seasonings

  13. Mary Helser says:

    I would use these for my oils and for Halloween. I have a big display of potion bottles for my hutch. These would be perfect.

  14. Mikell Robinson says:

    Thanks for the chance to win these beautiful jars and the magnesium crystals. I have used magnesium oil for years but have never made my own. I would love the chance to do that and then use these beautiful jars for the oil and other pretties.

  15. We have a huge collection of tiny shells from our visits to the beach. I would use a few of the jars to display those shells, and the others as flower vases on the mantle.

  16. Oh goodness, what to do with them - I would have to put in some simple pink/red colored water with a little glitter & a single stem carnation & give them away to my daughters for an early Valentine present!

  17. I would put buttons in them and sit them in my sewing area.

  18. Sheila Allen says:

    Oh gosh! I have had this idea in my head for a long, long time and I just haven't done it yet, but it involves jars like these and old pictures. If I won these, I would print old pictures of my parents, grandparents, etc on card stock paper (don't want to use originals) and roll them up and insert into the jars to display on shelves, coffee table, etc. I might experiment with the Epsom salt by adding the top portion covered on the jar and then add a ribbon jute tie and possibly a small charm? My mind is racing with ideas....thank you so much for the opportunity! Good luck everyone!

  19. Patricia Solla says:

    I would create a display of tiny items and when needed I can empty and use as serving containers for special occasions.

  20. These are lovely! Like the idea of covering with Epsom salts -- next winter. For now, a line of bottles on a narrow tray to each hold a single spring blossom

  21. I love them! I'm a quilter of small wall displays and I use lots of different buttons - they would look great in these jars as a display. Thank you for this opportunity!

  22. The jars would be used constantly for many things. They are so versatile and I love them! The crystals that I am now going to research as to what can be done with them! I'm excited to learn. Thank you for the giveaway!

  23. Julie Knauss says:

    I have a weathered narrow crate that I use on my kitchen or dining room table. The bottles would look great in the crate with a fresh flower in each one. A little dose of color!

  24. Julie Kaps says:

    I believe in using natural things like garlic & peppermint oil to stay healthy.
    I'd love to try the magnesium oil.
    Thanks for having this giveaway.

  25. Haven't heard of the magnesium for tinnitus and fibromyalgia but would love to try it! Also would be good storing kitchen items and leaving on the counter!

  26. Linda Dreher says:

    Love the bottles! I would put the crystals in the bottle with some pretty stem flowers and hang a colorful beaded rope around it. Thank you for the chance, Linda Dreher.

  27. Scotta latka says:

    I am interested in making the magnesium oil. That’s interesting. My other thought is that I have been wanting to make homemade vanilla - I just don’t know if the cork is the right lid for that. But generally speaking, I love crafting and making homemade oils and am toying with infusing my own cooking oil. These would for sure find a few different uses! Thanks for the chance to win 🙂

  28. Laura Hilton says:

    Thank you for sharing your time and talents. These jars are awesome for a number of uses and beautiful as well. My first thought was small bouquets or single stem flowers in a grouping.

  34. Anna Marie says:

    I love this! I have so many uses swirling in my head but using this to create a spa experience for me would top the list!
