Sorry davlin75, I've not made any. I was just browsing a site, read how they made copies, then read this question here. I'm sure there are several ways to make them, but this was how someone at one site made copy-cat ones.

HI All..Its not alcohol, that is used in the Berger lamp recipe that I have for the fragrant lamps. I had to buy the blank base then add my oil to make up my fragrance for my reeds. Directions on bottle to how much ratio base to fragrant oil. I gave up on lamps as the stones were always getting clogged even after setting in alcohol to clean them. They worked great in the beginning when new. Now I'm into the reeds.

I just read a post on another site about this. It said to use 50% alcohol and 50% scented oil. Apparently, the alcohol is what holds and disperses the fragrance, and does it much more than with the oil alone. (06/21/2007)

Hello,

I am new to this site and I am so excited about all of the craft ideas that everyone has. My questions is this I went over to my cousins house and her friend sells linen sprays but her sprays are so strong and they last for more than a day.

Does anyone know how I could go about making my own room spray to seal and make it as strong as her's. I have tried the vodka but from what I understand you can not sell room sprays with vodka. Also I would want it as to where you can not see the oil and the water separate because hers looked as if she brought it from the store.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing your tips. (07/10/2007)

As I understand it, it's not alcohol, something....polysorbate. I think.

Google for reed diffuser base, lots of companies sell it wholesale. In any case I don't think that it's a common household product. (07/10/2007)

Hi Susan,

Have you made this oil? And if you have does it disperse the fragrance pretty good? I have a small candle business & I have made some reed diffusers but the fragrance just doesn't seem very strong after awhile. Also what kind of fragrance oil do you use?

Thank You,
