Default Candles - max FO load?

I used this FO

And I really want a stronger scent/more throw. I used about 1.5 oz in 8 oz of wax - 2 small candles. Is there a rule of thumb?

I think you check the type of wax you are using and see what is the max percentage of fragrance you can use. It's different for the different wax blends.

Hey dixie

What wax are you using and what wicks? Different waxes hold different amounts. For instance I use
IGI 4627 paraffin and that wax has a max load of 10%. I typically will use 8 though....and adjust my wicks if necessary.
I use HTP wicks.
