How much essential oil can I put in a pure Soy container candle? Do I need to add a carrier oil?

Hello Candle experts!
I am new to the candle making process. I made my first soy candles yesterday and am burning them today. I notice that I can barely detect the patchouli/lemon pure essential oils at all while it is burning. Just how much essential oil can I put into a pound of soy container wax before I mess it up? I want it to smell nice when it is burning.
Also, I read in various places on the internet that sometimes people use carrier oils, like almond, coconut, etc. Is this necessary? Does it make for a better smelling candle?
Thank you for your help in advance.
