"Great as a Base for Roll-on Perfume"
COMMENTS:  I love using This dipropylene glycol as a carrier base for my Roll-on perfumes. In my opinion it is one of the safest carrier bases around! It is odorless, non-volatile, and dissolves both polar and nonpolar fragrance oils with a little bit of mixing. It has yet to cloud when mixed, doesn't leave a film when applied. I don't plan on using anything else to make my perfume unless it needs to be spray-able, in which case I will simply add some Crafter's Choice Cyclomethicone NF to help lower the viscosity. This stuff is a modern-day perfumist's Dream!

"Mystic Waltz Products"
COMMENTS:  After many requests from my customers, I have just recently added aroma oils to my line of candles, melts and sprays. WSP offers a variety of sizes (not just 16oz) at a very good price. This DPG mixes well. I am still learning good blend ratios.
