Hmm, if it is that (with the other 50% being Heliotropin) I wonder why I didn't care for it at all?
Unfortunately, the days of 50% Heliotropin at PA are long gone. It has been a mere 20% for some time, which to me would be useless -- it would put unacceptably much BB into a formula./QUOTE]
So sorry, I really haven't even given Heliotropex N much thought, either... I just use heliotropin, instead. Same with the replacer. At 50% in the replacer, I would still only use it when the BB was beneficial also. But at 20% in 80% BB, that is more problematic, as you mention... and frequency of use goes to about nil, for me too.
You have to look for an MSDS to find out:
veratraldehyde 20 - 30 %
anisaldehíyde 10 - 20 %
And I assume also Heliotropin at say, 50%.
This is all to get around the prohibition of selling Heliotropin at 100%
The Heliotropin replacer at PA was, last I checked, Heliotropin at 50%, and BB, I think also at 50%.
Buying pure Heliotropin is not impossible, but it is more difficult.
You can also see if Cassione works in your formula, instead of any heliotropin style of product.
Both Heliotropin and Cassione are solids / powders, as well as veratraldehyde, and Heliotropex N is a liquid. So there is some fluid in enough qty to suspend these solids...
My apologies, yes....I'm referring to HeliotropinHeliotrope is the flower.
