100% Ethyl Alcohol is the "Best Alcohol for Perfume Making".

Culinary Solvent is 100% ethyl alcohol, perfect for turning rich essential oils into safe, natural aroma experiences.

A naturally crystal clear liquid with a pleasant, neutral aroma, pure 200 proof ethanol quickly and easily blends with water and essential oils to create perfumes ranging from delicate to complex.  Highly evaporative, fully customizable, and a "known" single source ingredient for confident application across all skin types, including sensitive skin.  

"Nondenatured" means no toxic additives.  And for the record, there are zero total additives in Culinary Solvent, just pure ethyl alcohol.  Safe for use directly on your skin and body.  Excellent for reed diffusers and aromatherapy applications.

Culinary Solvent is perfect for recipes, processes, or environments intended for internal human consumption or external topical application.

And that's why I say "Culinary Solvent is simply the best alcohol for perfume making, hands down!" Thanks for giving my ethanol a try, you won't be disappointed. -Scott, Founder
