Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on FaceBook page

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.
