Neopentyl Glycol Diheptanoate is the one I was thinking of - also used in lip glosses and as an emollient

Just noticed this thread. I have bought a room spray which does not have preservatives in. All it has is "spring water, rose absolute & geranium essential oils with Wild Rose Flower Remedy." I have had mine for a while and it is still fine.

What was the consensus about preservatives?

See.. I dunno if this is just me being odd.. if you leave water for a time, it just has bacteria growing in it. I feel a bit weird spraying that around my house..

Would using something like a flower water as a base help? Don't they have some alcohol in?

I have been asked whether I make any room sprays, that and hand creams both of which are on my very long list of things to do.

Floral waters/hydrosols frequently have preservative - those without have a very limited shelf life after opening.
