Anybody switch PIO from ethyl oleate to sesame?

I am switching as I ran out of EO and all they have is sesame on hand.  They said it was thicker.  I am dreading this!  Any tips?!?!?

  • The sesame is super thick.  I actually had a reaction to it after using it for 2 weeks and had to switch to olive oil.

    But, as for tips, run it under hot water for 5 minutes, or sit the oil in the syringe in hot water for 5 minutes before you inject.  The oil gets thinner as it gets warmer.

    I also draw it up into the syringe with a bigger needle, and switch to a smaller one for the injection.

    GL!

    We always did sesame, so I'm not sure about the difference. DH put the syringe in the crook of his elbow to warm it. It went in pretty easily.
