I find honey burns easily. I use 1/4 teaspoon per bowl for dry tobacco and Desi Murli.

Where does it say that it IS an alcohol?? Here is a direct quote from that website:

[FONT=Arial]Glycerin is a neutral, sweet-tasting, colorless, thick liquid which freezes to a gummy paste and which has a high boiling point. Glycerin can be dissolved into water or alcohol, but not oils. On the other hand, many things will dissolve into glycerin easier than they do into water or alcohol. So it is a good solvent.[/FONT]

Not sure where you find the logic that it cant be alcohol free? Besides, it is derived from coconuts and I dont remember coconuts having alcohol in them.

[FONT=Arial][FONT=Verdana]on the same page, but at the bottom, it says:[/FONT]
[FONT=Arial](1) The pure chemical product is called Glycerol (which shows that it is an alcohol), while the impure commercial product is called Glycerin. This is a technical complexity, so for this article, I'm sticking to the more familiar term, Glycerin. [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]i chose pioneerthinking because i try to avoid wikipedia as being open source it tends to have a lot of misleading data, and also was too lazy do go down to the billionth google results page. i did however some research and the the vegetable stuff is obtained by treating some glycerol fats obtained from coconuts in a certain way, so yeah, it makes sense now, and you were right. Probably the vegetable thing is also a lot less risky for your body. (last aprt removed by editing)[/FONT][/FONT]

I don't see why your reaction had to be somewhat aggressive, though... won't try asking any other things related to your posts from now on, sorry for doing so with this one as well... [/FONT]

Aggresive? How do you figure? I was merely trying to point out there are different types of glycerin and I thought maybe you had gotten hung up on the alcohol aspect and didnt read it clearly. Sorry for trying to help.
