- 200 proof Perfumer's Alcohol - this is 100% alcohol. It is incorrectly listed as 190 Proof (90% ABV) on the label.
The preparation is upwards of 90% the above ingredients. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend that a homemade hand sanitizer have a minimum of 60% ABV. So this preparation is certainly far above that, but I do not have an alcohol meter to check.
- Aloe Vera Juice
- Hemlock Hydrosol - I re-distilled the hydrosol on March 20th 2020 and let it cool.
- essential oils of Tea Tree + Pine Needle + Balsam Fir
I did not add any of the suggested (but not required) emollients (moisturizers) such as the recommended vitamin E or glycerol, so follow use with heavy moisturizing, as alcohol is very drying. I recommend "Backcountry Butter" Hand Salve... an ultra hydrating and protective hand balm for dry, cracked hands.
Perfumery Alcohol is used for tincturing botanical experiments, and is used in the Cabin + Body Sprays primarily as an emulsifier within the preparation of hydrosols and essential oil (which do not mix). This helps the oil to be more evenly dispersed in the air. It also helps to preserve the product.
KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN
