BigNews.Biz - Apr 12,2012 - Create ambiance in any kind of room with light and aromas from scented candles. According to aromatherapy experts, scented candles are a proven mood booster.
Most waxes are made from oil and are closer to oils in their chemical composition. When choosing a fragrance for your candle wax, it should be an oil composition and not water or alcohol based.
Water and oil do not mix, so water based fragrances will settle on the bottom of your melted wax and the scents will be ineffective.
In addition to local stores such as Melt candles, scents and wholesale candles are available online. You can smell scented candles fragrances even when they are not lit.
Make outstanding handmade scented candles
Making scented candles is not too different from making regular candles.
First, decide which type of candle wax you want. The more fragrances you use in the wax, the stronger your scented candle smells. Wax types include paraffin, or more expensive beeswax, palm wax or soy wax.
Adding too much fragrance to wax, however, is a common mistake. Not only does this dramatically affect how well it burns but it leads to unattractive pitting.
This is particularly important with gel wax. When using gel wax, pay special attention to the density.
Next, melt the scented candle wax and pour it into a candle mould.
Do not set the temperature too high because scented candle wax can burn – particularly if you use gel candle wax. If you do decide to use gel wax keep a chemical fire extinguisher close by.
After melting the wax remove it from the heat source and simply add your fragrance oil.
Add an ounce of fragrance oil per every pound of wax, with slightly more or less depending on what strength you want the candle to be.
Handmade candles are not too difficult to make, although the best and most innovative designs will always be done from a wholesale candle retailer.
