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.
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!
Pouring Candles – Make sure the container is at room temperature or slightly warmer before pouring the candles. To avoid breaking and speed up the curing period of the wax, pour it into the container while the temperature is between 120 and 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
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 fragrance load is too high, the flame will burn off any extra oil that couldn’t bind with the wax, resulting in thicker-than-usual, dark smoke.
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.
185 degrees F is the perfect temperature for applying essential oils. Place your wax in a double boiler over low heat and slowly melt it. Remove the wax and set it on the counter until it reaches a temperature of about 185 degrees (you can either use a candy thermometer or an infrared thermometer for this).
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.
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.
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.
Why do homemade candles sink in the middle? The answer is simple, and the solution is even easy. When wax sets, it sinks because it contracts as it cools, leaving what I call “sink holes” in the middle of your candles, but it can also appear as sunken dips surrounding the wick.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
According to Fitchl, paraffin wax is the most generally utilized wax among candle brands since it can hold a lot of smell and color. It also comes in a variety of melt points, allowing it to be used to make a wide range of candles, from containers to pillars.
Step 4: Determine the weight of the fragrance oil.

In a double broiler or glass jar over low heat, combine 3 parts soy wax chips and 1 part coconut oil. Two small jar candles should be made from four cups of melted wax.
Sinkholes form spontaneously as a result of the wax hardening process. When wax is heated to turn it into a liquid, it expands, taking up more area as it transforms from a solid to a liquid.
The wax or the wick could be the cause of uneven burning. To begin with, the wick may be too small for the size of your candle. Also, the wax you selected might be too hard. You might use a softer wax or a hotter wick in place of the hard wax.
Before being enlarged, a portion of the suggested span transcript is shown. Another approach to avoid this, in addition to everything else, is to pour at a slightly lower temperature and wait for the. More information is available by clicking the More button at the bottom of this page.
Making Soy Candles Instructions
- The wax should be melted. To make a double boiler, put soy wax flakes in a glass bowl and set it over a pot with roughly a third full of water.
- Pour in the aroma.
- In the container, place the wick.
- Pour the wax into the mold.
- Allow for overnight hardening of the wax.
If you use too much fragrance oil, it will affect the burning qualities. Temperature at Which the Fragrance Was Added – If you add fragrance oil to melted wax at too high a temperature, it may disperse or burn off.
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.
