Soy Candle issues - Wax mottling (white) and essential oils not fragrant enough
(Sydney, NSW, Australia)
I watched the soy candle making movie to ensure I am making my soy candles properly as I am having 2 big issues with my candles:
1) the essential oils which I would much rather use due to their healing and therapeutic properties are not fragrant enough and customers are disappointed with the lack of aroma - it's much less fragrant than if you were to burn only a few drops in an oil burner, and I am using a half a teaspoon to a teaspoon for 500 g wax.
2) I am finding that a white mottling is happening on the top of the candle once it is dried... is this because I put the wick in before I pour the wax?
Thanks I look forward to hearing your advice.
P.S. Am LOVING this site and super keen to try the essential oil candle blends.
