Default Help w/ vegetable glycerin mix please

So I made my own lil' spritz. I mixed some VG w/ water jojoba oil rosemary oil and peppermint oil. My question is when I felt the VG with my hands it was really oily. However after I mixed everything in the bottle and shook, it felt watery. Do I need to add more VG or Jojoba or is this normal?

See how your hair likes it as it is. My hair loves vg, so I tend to use a lot. I played with my mixture until I got it right for my hair. I ended up using about 1 part vg and 3 parts water, then I add all the other stuff. It took me about a month of working with different mixes until I got it right for my hair.

However, I don't use vg in the winter. My hair hates it in the winter.
I had no idea I could love it so much… Hair!

my mixture made my hair feel a little "slick", not really moist/soft when i sprayed it in my hair. how should i adjust my mix?

i used:
- rose water (about 3 oz)
- glycerin (about 1 oz)
- aloe vera jelly (big squirt)
- almond oil (1/4 oz)
- essential oil (lots of drops)
