I always add essential oils to soy wax candles once the melted wax has cooled to roughly 60°C (140°F). Instead, I discovered that a higher temperature point makes a stronger mix for beeswax, paraffin, and gel wax candles — the temperature to add essential oils for those waxes is around 70°C (158°F).
GW 494 can be used with fragrance at a concentration of 5 to 10%; for optimal results, add fragrance close to the pour temperature (about 60 degrees).
How can I make the aroma more potent?
- Use the suggested fragrance oil proportion for the wax you’re using.
- Use a scale to weigh your aroma oils rather than a cup or spoon to measure them.
- At 185°F, add the fragrance oil and mix softly but completely with the melted wax.
Heat wax to 160°F – 180°F in a double-boiler setup. To improve side adhesion, preheat glass containers to 125°F – 149°F. Add the fragrance and dye, stir well, and pour between 150°F and 160°F. Allow as much time as feasible for cooling.
Allow your wax to achieve a temperature of 185°F before adding your scent and removing it from the heat source. Consider 185°F to be the “Goldilocks Zone.” It’s hot enough to properly bind and blend the scent with the wax, yet cool enough to prevent any smell loss.
The temperature at which the wax is poured is determined by the wax. Each soy wax blend/brand may have unique qualities and additions that influence the pouring temperature. The industry standard is to pour at 135° F, or when the wax begins to look slightly opaque, but some wax can be poured at 160-175° F.
We add our fragrant oils to Soy wax at 60 degrees Celsius. If you add the fragrance oil while the wax is still hot, the scent will burn out and the candle’s hot throw will be unpleasant. Also, make sure your wax isn’t too cold before adding any fragrance!
Depending on the blend, the melting point ranges from 49 to 82 degrees Celsius (120 to 180 degrees Fahrenheit). Soy wax has a density of nearly 90% that of water, or 0.9 G/ml. This means that nine pounds (144 ounces) of wax will fill 10 16-ounce jars (160 fluid ounces of volume).
However, essential oils having a flash point less than 80°C should be mixed at that temperature, and essential oils with a flash point less than 70°C should be stirred for a few minutes to aid the binding process… Points of Interest.
|Essential Oil (Essential Oil)||Temperature at which a flashpoint occurs|
|Cedarwood||a temperature of 65 degrees Fahrenheit|
|Roman Chamomile||30 degrees Celsius|
|Cinnamon||88 degrees Fahrenheit|
|Sage Clary||79 degrees Fahrenheit|
If your candles aren’t producing a strong enough hot throw, you may wish to lower the temperature at which the fragrance oil is added. It’s possible that some of the aroma is being burned off due to the melted wax’s heat. This is caused by adding your scent at too high a temperature.
Wax made of paraffin This is the softest paraffin wax we have, and it holds the greatest scent of all of the paraffin waxes we have. The cold and hot throws are both excellent. Good glass adhesion and single-pour qualities.
Air bubbles trapped in the wax can cause cracks or small holes on the tops of newly poured candles.

444 Wax is slightly harder than 464 Wax and has a higher melting point. Temperatures range from 119 to 125 degrees Fahrenheit, compared to 113 to 119 degrees Fahrenheit for 464 wax. If you want to make sure your candles don’t weaken or melt in hot weather, this wax is a smart choice.
So, if you multiply that point zero six by the 51 ounces of wax that we require, you’ll get. More information is available by clicking the More button at the bottom of this page.
Fragrance/Scent Load – The oil-to-wax ratio. A ten percent scent load means that you’ve added oil to ten percent of the wax mass. So, for every 100g of wax, add 10g of oil.
Step 4: Determine the weight of the fragrance oil.

Simply looking at the tops and sides (if visible) of your candle is one of the simplest ways to tell if it’s manufactured with pure all-natural soy wax. Frosting or blooming is the appearance of a white-ish or crystalline color layer. Frosting is an entirely natural feature of soy wax.
Allow the wax to cool to around 130 degrees Fahrenheit. After the mixture has cooled, add the essential oils. For every pound of wax, you’ll need roughly 100 drops of essential oils. Lemon, lavender, and Bergamot (50 drops lemon, 50 drops lavender, plus 10 drops Bergamot for 1 pound) are some of my favorites.
Most waxes will carry no more than 12 percent fragrance oil, but for optimal perfume throw, we recommend using 10 percent fragrance oil. This means that if your candle weighs 100 grams, 90 grams should be wax and 10 grams should be fragrance oil.
Essential oils such as lavender or lemongrass can be added to your soy candles to give them a fresh, natural aroma. These candles are a terrific choice for an afternoon project because soy wax is easy to work with, melt, and clean up. They’re also fantastic gifts for family and friends.

Throwing a Fragrance We utilize 464 for all of our fragrance tests because it gives off the most powerful scent when burned. Almost identical as 464, although with a slightly higher melting point. If you’ll be transporting your finished candles or selling them at outdoor fairs in hot weather, this is a good alternative.
When using pure soy, we recommend using the L or XL size wicks. The amount of fragrance oil, colour, and wax used will have an impact on how these wicks burn. To guarantee that an adequate melt pool is obtained, testing is required.
Adding a small amount of stearic acid or beeswax to the wax can make it firmer and easier to work with when producing wax tarts. You could also use portion cups to package your soft wax melts. This will make transferring the wax to the heater more easier and reduce the mess.
Tunneling is most commonly caused by using a wick that is too small for your wax or by ‘underwicking’ your container or aroma. Tunneling occurs when the wick drowns in its own melt pool, resulting in a dramatically shortened burn period and smell throw.
SOY WAX DOESN’T WORK WITH WOODEN WICKS. Wooden wicks, on the other hand, are a fantastic alternative for soy wax if you use the right sized wick (we’re talking about thickness as well as width). In creating 100 percent soy wax candles, many of our customers use our wooden wicks.
A paraffin-based candle should be burned for at least 24 to 48 hours, while a soy-based candle should be burned for up to a week.
Golden Wax 464 is a high-quality soy wax manufactured by AAK under the Golden Brands trademark. It’s a natural replacement for the discontinued CB-135, cB-Advanced, and CB-Xcel mixes, with a melting point of 45-48C. Wicks that have been pre-waxed perform best in this wax. Most perfumes will hold 10% or more of the wax.
Golden Brands GW 464 is a natural soy wax with a soy-based ingredient that helps to reduce icing and boost scent load. GW 464 is a container candle wax that mixes nicely with other waxes like paraffin, slack, and microcrystalline wax.
