    Hi Hailey,

    If you dont want to use the honey you can leave it out completely or can swap it for sodium lactate if you prefer.

    I want to swap out the honey… what would you recommend?

  • Kerry Pearson

    A standard teaspoon holds about 5ml so half a teaspoon would be rougnly 2.5ml. You are looking for 1/2ml in 100ml to be half a percent. A pipette might be helpful to measure this out

    Does 1/2 teaspoon of vitamin e work out to be 0.5% in a 100% formula? Thanks.
