How to make it

  • Formulator's Notes:
  • If you find that your mix is too thick and will not "wick up" your reeds, try diluting the oil with a small amount of either Formulator's or Perfumer's Alcohol. We recommend using up to 10% in alcohol to make your mix more "wickable".
  • ~
  • Certain essential oils, generally citrus oils, present a clouded product when mixed with DPG. While not aesthetically pleasing, the clouding will not effect the scent or its throw.
  • ~
  • Oils that contain the aromachemical vanillin, such as our Vanilla Bean fragrance oil, will become brown the longer they are exposed to air. This will not effect the scent or its throw.
  • ~
  • You can find dipropylene glycol, fragrance grade, (DPGF) here:

    Thank you for the idea. :-).

    I was surprised to see that I have to use 30% essential oil. Does that mean I need to use 30ml of essential oil & 70ml of DPG for a 100ml vase?

    And does dipropylene glycol evaporate along with the essential oils? Or do you add in just the essential oil when the aroma decreases?

    And I was wondering, since the idea of reeds is to draw something up to give it a greater surface area, couldn't we achieve the same by:
    1. Pouring the diffuser mix into a wide bowl (decorate it with a few real floating flowers too). Now we have a wide area for evaporation.
    2. Or a cotton cloth rolled around a small rod or pen, and put it in just like a reed.
    3. Or maybe a piece of sponge, with half in the bottle and half sticking out.

    I would love to know your thoughts.
    Cheers.

    I thank you Tuilelaith for this post. I guess I am the one responsible for Tuilelaith posting this. I asked if she could help me out since I spend so much money on these for my house. So, if anyone wants to knock someone for this post, then I guess I am your next target. Don't really care if I'm next. IF YOU DON'T WANT TO DEAL WITH THIS STUFF THEN JUST DON'T OPEN IT...SIMPLE!!!
