Using essential oils in homemade soya candles

by su

I want to make natural candle with soya wax. I tried making one using essential oil in my candle, but when I burn the candle I cann't smell the EO I added. WHY?

I primed the wick, but after a while of burning my candle stops burning on its own. Why? what am I not doing right? Please help.

Discolouring after burning NEW
by: Maria

Hi, Can someone please advise why my essential oil soy candle discolours after burning. Could it be the essential oil quality? This doesn't happen with my fragrance oil candles.

You know that soy candles are better than paraffin candles, but are these really a green or healthy option? How do beeswax candles compare?

Scenting candles with EOs
by: Kyley

I'm sorry to say it's not going to work the way you want. Essential oils just don't give off the same intensity of scent as synthetic fragrance oils.

You can look up the website of your soy wax provider and find out the maximum percentage of oil their wax will take, then do the math for your batch. All waxes are not created equal in this regard, so you may find that switching to a more absorbent wax will help.

Beeswax has its own very distinctive scent, so I've never added essential oils to it. I would say you're going to need to do some research on that, although once again I'm thinking that essential oils just aren't going to give you the scent throw you're looking for.

I'm sorry I can't be of more help. The ingredients are what they are, so it's about deciding what you want more - natural ingredients or a strong scent.

I call my lavender soy candles "Lightly Lavender" and I market them as "subtly scented" with whatever scent. I push the healthy, natural angle. People either respond of they don't. You could do both - some essential oil candles, some fragrance oil and let your customers choose.

I hope that helps at least a little...

The problem with adding a little oil to the wax pool is it may be at your customers house, so you wouldn't be able to do that. What about adding more oil during the making of the soy candel??

essential oil in soy candles
by: su

Thanks for your reply , it was helpful!!! I tried putting a drop of the EO in the melted pool of wax, and it helped with the smell little bit, but not enough. Since i want my candles to be as natural as possible, i tried making one with bees wax, but smell is still an issue? what can i do to get the smell in the bees wax candle ? .

Candle Burning Out
by: Kyley

Hi Su,

The scent problem with essential oils is one people often ask about. Essential oils don't give off a strong scent throw like fragrance oils do, so the scent you get when using them is very subtle. Lots of people can't smell them at all.

You have a couple of choices. You can switch to using fragrance oils or you can add a drop of essential oil into your wax pool once the candle has been burning for a little while to increase the scent.

On your wicking issue - it sounds like you got some bad wicks. This happened to me once and I had to return that batch of wicks and have them replaced. If your wicks are good and you're using a thick enough wick for the width of your candle, your wick should not go out. Try different wicks and see if the problem disappears.

Best of luck!
