    Default how to dilute solid resins ( Mhirr, benjoin...)

    Hi my friends! I have many resins like benjoin, sandarac, mhyrr etc, but all of them is solid ( crystals) How can I dilute them to use in my compositions? Can I use alcohol? And the proportion?

    Thanks a lot!

    Hi

    I personally use alcohol to dilute these resins. I dilute mine to 20% for labdanum, benzoin, myrhh, oppoponax etc.

    The olibanum I buy comes as 30% TEC.

    I would use alcohol for everything.
    25% is more than enough dilution, but you could try at 50% too.
    I've not really found Sandarac that mentionable, frankly, though...
