  • Scenting Candles

    Hi

    Please can anyone help. I have been trying to make some Aromatherapy candles. I have tried with both beeswax and soya wax. However although the candles smell of the oils when first made when burnt the scent is either very subtle or non-existent. I have been putting in about 40 drops of the oils for about 200gm wax, which is nearly quarter of the oil bottle.

    Does anyone have any tips for making long lasting scented candles using natural essential oils.

    With thanks
    Helen

    Hi Helen

    Using EOs to scent candles can be hit and miss. There was a thread recently discussing this. You can read it here

    It may give you some tips.

    Hope that helps.

      ^ Yeah, that was a cool thread. I've still not tried using essential oils again.
