hello! I’m super new to candle making. I mean, I’ve made candles, but always in like an uneducated way. You know.... just mixing a bunch of waxes and dumping them in a can and calling it good. I’ve never taken the time to educate myself on waxes, wicks, scents, and how to make it all come together. So here I am! I found the wax I wanted, scents I wanted, and the wicks I need for the jars I purchased. But now I’m having trouble understanding how to get the right balance of fragrance to wax. I found a few different sites that have loads of information. I’ve attached a screen shot of the info I found on Lone Star candle supply website. I think I got the math figured out for making just one single candle at a time, but could really use some extra eyes to tell me if I totally effed it up! Math is not one of my strengths- haha So, I have the following: A jar, at 8.5 ounces to fill line (11.16 fl ounces to overflow) Golden Brands 464 soy wax with 12% max fragrance. So doing the math for wax, it looks like it would be 1 container x 8.5 ounces = 8.5/20 = 0.425 lbs of wax needed. Then for fragrance it would be 0.425 lbs of wax x 16 (ounces per pound) = 16 ounces x 12% (0.12) = 0.816 ounces of fragrance. So 0.816 ounces of fragrance to one single 8.5 ounce candle. Does that seem accurate? Or is it too much fragrance oil? Sorry for the long post. It thanks again for any help!!!
