    Default Do you guys use all alcohol as a carrier or mix it with distilled water??

    As above really, I have looked into this and had mixed opinions. It seems in some blends people use just alcohol and in others mix it with distilled water.... is there a code of conduct with this issue?

    I have been using 95% grain alcohol at not diluting it with any more water.

    Cheers guys, sounds like I'm fine how I am. I have read on some websites that distilled water is used but I had my doubts about how good it would be. Shame I cant get any ethanol!

    Ethanol can be a tricky item to get a hold of...if you're just using it for personal use at home...100proof vodka is pretty much the same thing...or at least comparable.

    Just alcohol too (+ a little bit of glycerol to slow down evaporation)

    100 proof vodka is only 50% ethanol; it won't be very effective at dissolving many essential oils. You should try to get at least 150 proof material.

    Oops...I meant to write 200 proof...100%. My bad.

    Currently I have 90% BDV which I think is pretty strong. Strongest I can find in my City at the moment.
