    Default The attar wand- to use or not to use. That is the question.

    It’s a conundrum. Do you use the bottle and application method as it was designed or do you do something else to apply that won’t “contaminate” the oil? I find myself doing both, but would really rather just go for a swipe using the wand. What do you do? Do you really think it matters?

    I don't use the wand, I favor plastic toothpicks and never double dip. With some of the sandalwood oils that I bought years back, I did use the wand and started to notice an accumulation of particulates in the bottom. Probably not 100% dead skin cells, but surely not 0% either. Does it affect the composition or smell? Really I have no idea, but erring on the side of caution for me is as simple as taking a toothpick out of a box and dipping/swiping with that instead.

    My skin is quite oily so I wouldn't just because I know that oil would mix. Toothpicks seem like a good way to go.

    I use the wand and don't worry.
    If one is worried, I guess the suggested use of a plastick pick (that one can clean after use) should do it.

    I owned a few cheaper attars at one time. I'd dab / swipe, on the skin, then wipe off the wand with a tissue or cotton ball - whichever was handier.

    That’s what the wand is for, isn’t it? I have far bigger worries, to be honest...
