Essential Oils Specific Gravity

Essential Oils Specific Gravity

Are you wondering what is the specific gravity of your essential oils e.g. lavender, peppermint? Using essential oils in your soap making or personal care product can be frustrating as there are some recipes that tells you to use in drops while some uses ml (i.e. volume) but what would also be great if you knew the weight i.e. specific gravity of your essential oil?

To help crafters along, I have consolidated the following list of common essential oils used and their specific gravity in metric (grams) and flashpoints. You can easily convert the measurements to imperial by using any converter or even google.
