Perfume/Essential Oil Applicator Pen

Loading the Applicator with Perfume or Essential Oil

• Dip the applicator tip while in the pen, into the perfume bottle and hold it for one minute. This will soak up the perfume. The white applicator tip will swell and stay in place when filled with liquid.

• Before refilling the pen, clean applicator tip by soaking it in household type alcohol.
