On your soy candle making instructions
, the video temperature for the wax and the printed text for the correct temperature to add fragrance are not the same. Which is the correct temperature - 140 or 115?A:
In the video, the candle maker is using a synthetic candle fragrance, which is added at a temperature of 140.
My printed candlemaking instructions are for using natural essential oils, which are added when the temperature has dropped to 115, since they evaporate off at higher temperatures. Simply choose the temperature depending on which fragrance option you're using.
I should add that essential oils have a weaker scent throw than candle fragrance oils, but they're also non-toxic - not the case with synthetic scents.
I hope that clears up the confusion, and good luck with your candle making!
