    What is vegatable glyerene-and where do you get it?

    Hi Mary
    Glycerin is a clear syrupy liquid obtained from vegetable oils. It is a humecant used in moisturisers due to its water binding capabilities that allow it to draw and absorb water from the air.
    You can buy vegetable glycerin here$5-95-Gpnc_531–41650129.htm You can also buy it from aromatherapy supply shops, health food stores as well as some pharmacies be sure to double check it is vegetable glycerin and not synthetically made from animal fats or propylene glycol

    Do you have to use rubbing alcohol in this seeing as the eo’s are antibacterial?
