We have been reading the same threads!
Wouldn't using that 10-1 dilution with alcohol make it more difficult to smell... you'd have to wait for the alcohol smell to dissipate before you could smell the EO/C02.
I also thought I had read somewhere that you could take your 10% oil dilution and then use your ethanol to create your perfume. I'm paying $20-30 for 1/16 of an oz for some of the rarer absolutes and EO's. So I want to be Extra careful.

Thank you Doc Elly!
I will check out the yahoo forum. I realize the pricier oils might not be the most practical... but I am working towards a very specific goal... and spending time working with materials that I won't use at the end of this process doesn't work for what I'm trying to accomplish... does that make sense?
