Iodine through Essential Oil?
« on: June 10, 2002, 08:48:00 PM »
I was perusing through an essential oil dealer and noticed that they have the essential oil for Seaweed (30%, from France, Lamanaria digitata). $37 for 15mL!

Now this is rather expensive I noticed, but would this contain large quantities of Iodine? Or just trace amounts that would a pain to extract anyway? It would have to contain extremely high amounts to be cost effective, so this probably isn't viable, but thought I would share it anyway.

I've searched high and low for a UK source of Lugols's solution with no success. Maybe it's only popular in the US.

Iodine is used in reef tanks. You should be able to find some KI solutions in a store that specializes in reef tanks.
