    Hi Gail, It does not as the oil is not diluted. If you believe there is a possibility of the balloon being punctured, dilute by all means.

    If a rambunctious kid puts a hole in the balloon, does the flour keep the oil from hurting the skin?

    Hi Angela! It should last quite a well. We made some for the first time 2 months ago and the aroma is still very much potent.
