This is a special formulation which can be used by both professionals and amateurs who wish to make perfumes, room sprays. It allows the simple addition and blending of essential oils and fragrances to produce crystal clear solutions.
The blended solutions remain clear, and, mostly free from cloudiness.
Perfumer's alcohol forms a clear solution with most fragrance oils, but some which are specifically designed for use in candle-making can cause issues.
The 3 main ingredients of perfumers alcohol are:
Ethanol (denatured) -Alcohol which is the main carrier for the fragrance oils. This evaporates quickly as it is warmed by skin temperature releasing the fragrances evenly over the surface.
Isopropyl myristate - used in preparations where good absorption is desired.
Monopropylene glycol - a cosolvent which allows the fragrance oils to be solubilised in the alcohol carrier. This helps to control the evaporation of the alcohol so that it does not flash off too quickly.
As Perfumers Alcohol contains Isopropyl Myristate which does not mix with water we do do recommend that water is added to blends. For products where it is desirable to add water then one should use our Formulators Alcohol in place of the Perfumers Alcohol. We, also, sell Formulators Alcohol.
Prepare scent by adding fragrance oils to perfumer's alcohol
Stir solution slowly and thoroughly until solution has cleared (although it may not always be possible to get a completely clear solution as the fragrance oils may discolour the base oil - but - this does not affect the quality of the room spray).
