You can use essential oils or candle fragrance oils to scent your candles. When using fragrance oils, be sure that you use oils specifically formulated for use in candle making applications. Our line of candlee fragrance oils are specifically formulated to burn properly in beeswax and paraffin candles.
Use essential/fragrance oils at a rate of 1 teaspoon per pound wax. Too much oil will mottle your wax or ooze out of the wax. If you find that your candle doesn't give off enough scent as it burns, you can try soaking the wick in the fragrance/essential oil before making your candle. It's difficult to determine which scents will work best and which ones will be heat activated. Experiment with various types to see which work best.
