    Default using ml

    Hi to all.

    I am new to this forum and to perfume making, I need help in the issue of measurement that every one uses.
    All of you use drops to make you mix.
    I come from are where we use volume to make I mix for example if I want to make 20% mix I will add 20 ml 0f my ingredients to 80 ml of solvent (20% per volume) how I can do that in mixing my oil to get the desire smell that I need before I dilute my mix u sing volume (ml) milliliter
    for example
    oil -a drops 3 ml = ?
    oil-b drops 4 ml = ?
    oil-c drops 1 ml=?
    oil-d drops 8 ml=?
    oil-e drops 2 ml=?
    can somw on tell what is the volume of each oil?
    thanks

    Usually what people do is work with 0.01 scales (or better) to be able to work with weight and not volume.. Typically I dilute my EO to 10% in weight and then start blending. That way, the drops in the blend have more or less the same weight, which is the weight of the solvent..

    I would argue that most everyone with a little bit of experience uses weight and not volume.

    No, no one is going to tell you the volume or weight of each oil, certainly our time is worth much more than to catalog for you 800 oils for your reference.

    Each oil is different by weight. Each drop is often different in amount. That's why we work by weight.

    It's OK to dilute by weight to make the concentrate, and then to dilute by volume to make the perfumes, if you like, though.

    If you have experience in making dilutions, then you have some good skills to draw upon, so that's great. but just buy yourself a nice scale like this one and get going...
