Candle & Soap Making/candlemaking - fragrance


I learned from you how to measure the wax needed for the jar, but how do you measure the fragrance?

Hi Carole,

A good rule of thumb when it comes to fragrance is 1 -1.5 oz of fragrance per 1 lb of wax. Anything more than that in my opinion, is wasteful. The nose simply cannot tell the difference between 1-1.5 ounces to 2-3 oz.

Hope that helps
