    Question Help ! Reed diffusers

    Hello everyone, i am a newbie in this forum and would like some very much needed help.
    So, I'm trying to make my own reed diffusers brand in my home country ( Algeria ) and i have some vital questions i hope I'm in the correct section of the forum so :
    1 : i'm planning to use the following ingredients.
    - dipropylene glycol
    - alcohol
    - synthetic fragrances
    I've been looking for informations around the web and it's the best i could find i think it was on this very forum.

    Questions i have :
    1 : if i use DPG alcohol and fragrance... What will be the optimal ratio in percentage of each of those components ?
    2 : I've read that using other base oils is more suitable but i kind of struggle to find any of them where i live and i did found a DPG supplier So I'm 90% going for the dpg.
    3 : i found out that essential oils are too expensive to make a margin out of selling them.

    I should mention that i really need a good formula to make it cost effective since i plan on making it a brand, there aren't many reed diffusers brands where i live, actually there's only one which is imported from turkey, i found out that they buy them for 1.50$ wholesale so i need to stay in that price range on production i guess.

    I would really appreciate some help from you guys.
    Thank you

    Hello! DPG is not recommended, it will clog the reeds and the scent will not diffuse. The common ratio is 20-25% fragrance / 75-80% Augeo Clean Multi or Alcohol

    is it effective?

    I know some professionals that uses 20% fragrance, 80% Dowanol TPM / Dowanol DPM for high quality reed diffusers. Also, some materials should be avoided like Hedione and BHT in the fragrance concentrate.
