Uses for Dipropylene glycol (DPG):

Perfumery Uses :

  • Making Reed Diffuser oils (see below for details)
  • Very good fragrance diluent and quencher.
  • Pot pourri, perfumes, room sprays, body sprays, oil burners
  • Plugin reed diffuser oils

Other effective uses of DPG are:

  • Hydraulic brake fluid formulations
  • Cutting oils
  • Textile lubricants
  • Printing inks
  • Coatings
  • Industrial soaps
  • Solvent for agrichemicals eg. insecticides.

How to make your own REED DIFFUSER OIL:

  • 10-20% Fragrance oil
  • 60-70% DiPropylene glycol (DPG) or MonoPropylene glycol (MPG)
  • 10-20% Perfumers alcohol or Formulators (optional)

To make diffuser oil, blend the fragrance oil with the DPG or MPG until clear. Add Perfumers alcohol to reduce viscosity to desired thickness.

The addition of Perfumers Alcohol is optional but it does improve clarity of finished product and allows more control of the viscosity of the Reed Diffuser.
