Does 1 gram of essential oil equal 1 milliliter?

Some essential oils drip faster and others more slowly. As if the drop didn’t want to run down. To blame is the so-called relative density of the oils, which also determines how many milliliters are in one gram of this treasure and whether 1g of essential oil corresponds to 1 milliliter. You may be surprised, but 1 gram of essential oil is not equal to 1 ml. On the contrary , 1 gram contains more than 1 ml of oil . And today we will show you why this is so and we will also reveal to you how many drops are in 1 ml of oil.

Some essential oils are very thin and almost flow into your mixture, like citrus . And others, on the other hand, are denser and seemingly don’t want to flow, such as myrrh or vetiver. Somewhere in the middle are rare rose oils .

How to convert ml to grams of essential oil

We use the following formula for the calculation:

relative density = mass : volume

volume = mass : relative density

How many drops are in 1 ml of essential oil?

Because we answered the question – does 1g of essential oil correspond to 1 milliliter. Another and very important one immediately arises. How many drops are in 1 ml of oil? As we have already explained, each essential oil has a different relative density and thus its volume varies accordingly. Therefore, there can be between 20-40 drops of essential oil in 1 ml , let’s calculate that on average around 30.

Is a “drop” of essential oils an ideal unit of measurement?

For most simple recipes, such as fragrant aroma mixtures, the so-called “drip” as a unit of measure will do just fine. But mischief would occur at the moment when we would produce some more sophisticated home cosmetic product. Using drops, we will never achieve accuracy, because we already know that each essential oil has a different relative density, viscosity, but also a different droplet size, and in addition, the temperature of the room also plays a role, and last but not least, the human factor. When manufacturing cosmetics, we need to choose whether we will weigh all the raw materials in grams or measure them by volume, i.e. milliliters. And then we’ll be fine. But maybe about that again sometime next time.
