Can someone explain please. When buying Oxalic acid it seems to be called either "Oxalic Acid" or "Oxalic Acid Dihydrate". Are they the same thing?
If not are they both suitable for a vapouriser?
Either but get a batch number as well

more than 20, less than 100.
Does that stuff have a shelf life? Would the batch number of an expired product be acceptable?

Here in the UK we aren't allowed to use pure OA for sublimating or any treatment form, like any treatment it has to be licenced and a recommended available one.

Very interesting
We in Estonia are allowed to treat bees against mites with oxalic acid. Works very well and effectively.
Oxalic acid is a natural substance found in rhubarb leaves for example

Our Oxalic has to be a licenced product called Apibioxal it has other useless non essential additives.
