    Re: How Do You Open Sample Vials?

    Flicking the top is good.

    Re: Baking soda enfleurage

    There is also the general problem with powder: we shouldn't inhale particulates if we can avoid it.

    But it sounds so appealing: a pretty powder that seems to have a light scent. Then, as you...

    Thank you, Pears.

    To clarify:
    I meant the various powders discussed in Anya McCoy's post, not sodium bicarbonate.

    And I meant to ask something more like: "to what do we think the aroma...

    Re: Baking soda enfleurage

    May I ask for some more information about anti-caking agents?

    And I'm wondering: what do we think the aroma molecules are adhering to and/or dissolving in, in these powders?

    Digindirt, nice to see you around these parts!

    What did you end up deciding about all this stuff?

    I must say, that amber oil is potent! I think the honeysuckle and the cypress smell pretty...
