Formula conversion using percentages by weight

Postby amearkle » Sat May 12, 2007 7:28 pm

I have a formula for a product using percentages by weight

Camphor 5%
Menthol 4%
Turpentine 1%
Eucalyptus Oil 1%
Cedar-Leaf Oil 1%
Nutmeg Oil 1%
Thymol Oil 1%
Wintergreen Oil 1%
Petroleum Jelly 85%

Can I convert the above figures to ounces and still prepare this formula correctly.

Camphor 5oz
Menthol 4oz
Turpentine 1oz
Eucalyptus Oil 1oz
Cedar-Leaf Oil 1oz
Nutmeg Oil 1oz
Thymol Oil 1oz
Wintergreen Oil 1oz
Petroleum Jelly 85oz

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
