1/4 Ounce Should Work
by: Kyley

A rough guide is 1/4 ounce per pound (16oz) wax. 1/4 ounce is 1 teaspoon, or 160 drops.

Keep in mind, your soy wax supplier will have recommended a ratio of fragrance to wax depending on the type of soy wax you bought. You might want to double check and make sure 1/4 ounce is in the recommended range.

Best of luck - let us know how it turns out!
