  • Hi, Sandy!

    Clear glycerin should be readily available at any pharmacy or discount store. I've used baby oil in handmade snow globes before as an alternative option! I hope this helps!

    • Hi, Sandy!

      Wow... I actually bought a small bottle of glycerin at WalMart years ago! I believe it was near the herbal supplements or near where Epsom Salts would be located (I honestly don't remember!)... I did a quick internet search, and Glycerin USP came up as the Equate brand from WalMart (go figure!) as well as Walgreens, CVS, GNC and Dollar General! I hope you find it locally but in case you don't, there are several options for ordering it online. :) Good luck!

      I did a Google search for my area and found it in stock at Walgreens, Walmart, Joann Fabric and CVS. Many chain stores will even tell you what aisle it's in on their website. I often check if something is in stock before driving to a store. Hope that helps.

  • Craft and hobby shop, do you have any in your area? Or a science shop, those are a bit harder to find. I have one and they sell all sorts of off the beaten path type of items.

    Craft store like Michael's, Hobby Lobby. Drug stores or pharmacy in discount store. Baby oil is an option.

    Bought some Baby oil and I have corn syrup.....DO YOU ADD ANY WATER TO THE MIXTURE? 12-10-19

  • William William on Dec 10, 2019

    I wouldn't use corn syrup. Baby oil yes. Don't add water. Oil and water don't mix. Baby oil will create a floating effect. Some just use distilled water which will create less floating. Do not use tap water.
