Can I mix a tiny amount of food grade grapefruit essential oil in a couple of ounces of grain alcohol to use as a flavoring?April 6, 2017 7:49 pm at 7:49 pm #1252395zaltzvasserParticipant
Try googling that.April 6, 2017 7:57 pm at 7:57 pm #1252447
I did Google that. All the results I got were about perfumery or about dipping a toothpick into the essential oil bottle and then into the cake batter.April 6, 2017 11:04 pm at 11:04 pm #1252531zaltzvasserParticipant
Ok, so you can eat/drink essential oil. Now try googling grain alcohol (which, derech agav, probably isn’t kosher for pesach, so eat whatever you’re making before monday!)April 6, 2017 11:08 pm at 11:08 pm #1252550
I’ve actually been seeking answers since Chanuka and just want to know in general.April 6, 2017 11:59 pm at 11:59 pm #1252555
Also, while some essential oils are food grade, it is still very possible to overdose on some and get poisoned.October 26, 2017 11:29 pm at 11:29 pm #1390804LightbriteParticipant
Why not use vegetable glycerin?October 27, 2017 2:21 am at 2:21 am #1390842
Because then I can’t use the mix like an extract.October 28, 2017 10:11 pm at 10:11 pm #1391110LightbriteParticipant
Last night, I had a dream that I was asked to take a breathalyzer. The breathalyzer was in a little measuring cup. I puffed air into it. The results were higher than legal limit. I started crying, saying that I wanted to take it again. It made no sense. I don’t even drink.
But before I took the test, I was chewing gum. I spit it out seconds before taking the breathalyzer.
I asked the person who gave it to me if the gum would result in a false positive. Yes. She said. That’s exactly why the results came out positive! It was the sugar alcohols.
When I woke up, I wondered where that dream came from.
Then I remembered your thread. I looked up extracts and grain alcohol, wondering if an extract could affect someone like alcohol, even in a small dose.
Weird how the CR ends up in my sleep.
