The consistency is not as thick as you would expect. For us there is no point in making it if we can't make it as healthy as possible. We use ethyl alcohol instead of rubbing alcohol because chemicals have not been added to it. Rubbing alcohol that contains ethanol is 'denatured,' meaning that toxic substances are added to it to prevent people from drinking it. However, both types of alcohol are effective if you calculate the right percentage in the finished product.
