Diluting an oil based Vitamin K2 supplement?

I'm in desperate need of a vitamin K2 MK-4 supplement and there are barely any products on the market that contain pure MK-4 without additives, in a low dose. Thorne makes a liquid K2 which is 1mg/drop (http://www.thorne.com/products/vitamins/prd~k170.jsp) The dose I need to take is 50mcg, three times per day, so I was looking to see if I could dilute this liquid to match the dosage I need. The liquid K2 contains only the MCT oil and mixed tocepherols. If I were to purchase a bottle of MCT oil and an empty dropper bottle, is it simple enough to mix these 2 together at the ratio I desire? What I wasn't sure of is for example, if I mixed 1 drop of liquid K2 in the bottle with 20 drops of MCT oil, and then shook the bottle, would it all be evenly distributed? Or would that one drop of K2 not fully blend with the MCT oil? I'm assuming that I'd have to use the same oil type (MCT) for them to be able to blend. Is that correct? Thanks!

As long as they are miscible (fancy chemist word for mixable), it should work as you describe. Any oil will do it too. Don't bother with MCT oil, try olive oil.
