My candles stink like jet fuel!

by Nancy
(Boston, Ma.)

I just made soy candles for the first time. I am so disappointed. The candles came out good but when I lit one it smelled horrible. The fragrance (a fruity smell) smelled awesome when mixing it in. But the blue dye smelled strong and horrible! Just the 7 drops I added overtook the fragrance oil. Has this ever happened to anyone out there?

Candles Smell like jet fuel NEW

When I first started making candles I noticed that smell also..I asked why? I was told that I had scorched (slightly burned)the wax during the melting process..I dont know how you melt your wax but I was told Never have the wax near the heat source-I was using a presto cooker to melt my wax, so I tried a double boiler to melt my wax and I did not have that problem again..That solved my problem..I know allot of people use them to melt their wax but I had better luck with the double boiler..
