Post How do you count so many drops??
Hi, I am attempting to make a blend with a few oils in a 5oz bottle. From what I worked out, to make a 10% Plai blend, I would 630 drops of it for the 5oz bottle. From the chart Plai is 42 drops/ml.

My question is how on earth does one sit there and measure 630 drops? And thats only one of the oils going in the bottle. If there a better way of doing this or am I missing something. Any tips would be great.

I use pipettes to measure the oils when there are more than 20-25 drops. Ananda sells 3ml plastic ones that have 1/2ml gradations.

Also, you might try a smaller bottle.

Your reply prompted me to take a closer look at the bottles I got, and the Ananda site. They are 5ml, and not 5oz - a big difference there :) one could even say that made all the difference. Guess I owe you a thanks. I made a few blends since then with no trouble counting drops what not.
