Solvent Base for Making Incense and Scent Products

Dipropylene Glycol LO (DPG LO) is a Perfume Grade organic chemical compound that is found in most fragrances, perfumes and scent based products.  It is used as a solvent to bind and carry essential oils or fragrances and allow them to be used in making incense.  DPG LO provides excellent co-solvency for water, oils and hydrocarbons, with minimal odor, low skin irritation potential, low toxicity and consistent scent distribution, making it ideal for use in and blended with other ingredients to make commercial perfumes, personal care scent products, deodorant sprays, and body mists.

  • Incense:  2 parts Dipropylene Glycol to 1 part Essential Oil or Fragrance Oil
  • In Perfume usage is between 4% and 70% depending on whether it is an alcohol based perfume or and alcohol free body scent product.  Many cultures discourage the use of alcohol in their perfumes so a higher level of DPG LO is used to act as a solvent for the essential oils and fragrance compounds.

Technical Information

Technical Information:

Instructions For Making Incense:

  • Incense:  2 parts Dipropylene Glycol to 1 part Essential Oil or Fragrance Oil
  • Mix the Dipropylene Glycol with your desired fragrance or essential oil.
  • Pour into appropriate container. Soak incense sticks or cones in fragrance mixture for 24 hours.
  • Cones are easy to find appropriate container but depending on length of sticks we find an inexpensive cookie sheet, tin foil pan or plastic tote with lid works well.
  • After soaking, pour unused fragrance into an HDPE bottle and mark as it can be used again later to make scent more incense.
  • Lay the cones or sticks out on a drying rack or hand to dry. Place paper towel under to catch any drips that may fall off in the beginning of the drying process.
  • Be sure to let sticks dry completely!
  • Once fully dry they are ready to use, give as gifts or sell. Enjoy
