    Default Can these materials be dissolved in alcohol?

    Hi,

    I want to use the following materials but i want to know if they're soluble in alcohol

    Rose Otto. I was actually reading in another thread that it should be i'm still a bit sceptical, perhaps because someone said it didn't dilute completely for them.
    Violet Leaf ab.
    Jasmine Sambac. I've actually got this diluted in DPG at 5% already.

    If they don't dilute completely in alcohol, please suggest another solvent i could use.

    those mentioned should dissolve well in ethanol, assuming you are using 96% ethanol. lower than 96% will most likely cause problems when trying to dissolve these extracts.

    Perfumery alcohol is just fine there.

    Thank you v. much

    Can either of you recommend a percentage to dilute these oils in?

    For V. Leaf i'm thinking 1%
    For Jasmine Sam. i'm thinking 5%
    For Rose Otto, i'm thinking 10% or 5% but i'm not entirely too sure.

    You would likely dilute to some similar ratio as you predilute other materials for your blending trials.
    If you dilute all your other materials to 10%, then maybe these too.
