Droppers come in various sizes with various size openings. A drop is usually exactly the same amount of liquid no matter what size the dropper, but essential oils are very, very thin and lightweight and very, very thick and heavy weight, and so thick Patchouli weighs more in less space than thin Tea Tree. But generally:

1 dropper holds 20 drops which is 1 milliliter
1/2 dropper yields 10 drops which is 0.5 ml.
