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.
"I just wanted to write to say thank you. I have been purchasing products from your Web site for quite a while, namely rice bran, seaweed powders, camellia oil, dead sea salts and most recently, shea butter. I have very sensitive skin, and there aren't many products on the market that I don't develop a nasty rash from. I'm a research chemist, and many ingredients in mass market products are petrochemically derived. Although the by products may be trace, it is still enough to agitate my skin. It is also important for me to select products that do not have a vile effect on the environment. I ran an online search for rice bran to use as a gentle face wash and stumbled across FNWL. I was absolutely delighted with the delicate cleansing and calming effect it had on my face. Most recently, the shea butter I purchased has completely healed the eczema on my knees. I wanted to say thank you. Your product quality and prices are absolutely superb. "
