If you are new to natural candles and scents you have to adjust your expectations a little. Candles made with natural scents and essential oils won’t engulf a whole room in a very strong smell. Soy candles have a lighter fresher and purifying scent and effect.
Its always best to add in essential oils when the wax has cooled a little below the oils flash point. The ratio of essential oil to wax that I have found gives off the most scent for the least amount of oil as is follows:
100 drops Essential Oil= 1 tsp
6 tsp Essential Oil = 1 oz
1 oz Essential Oil + 36 oz Soy Wax = 4- 8oz Aromatherapy Candles
