    Just sell whatever you want. Sounds like a great small business idea. Maybe take out the cinnamon and put a note that says to discontinue use if irritation occurs.

    In the post in DIY it clearly says:

    "After diluting, you need to let it sit for 4-6 weeks. Otherwise, all you will smell is alcohol if you're using that as the carrier agent"

    So 3 days is not enough time.

    While you are waiting, find out what is causing the reaction on your skin. See if it is the vodka, if not, dilute each oil separately to see which is causing the problem. Get a friend to volunteer and see if it is just your skin.
