I was reading on a website the other day about taking measurements of your ingredients and such. A sentence toward the end of the article really jumped out and got my attention. The author's statement was "don't forget to measure your fragrance oil and liquid dyes by weight not volume" [My paraphrase]. Uh Oh! I have been adding fragrance oil by liquid ounces or milliliters and not by weight. I looked at some of my fragrance bottles and you see the statement that says "bottles filled by weight". Other manufacturers label their bottles as X Fl. Oz./XXX ml. I've been griping about how my pillars and containers give off very little fragrance or usually none at all. Could the way I've been measuring be causing my no fragrance problem? Am I supposed to be weighing all my liquids? I'm really confused now. Q
First, let me say this is not my candle. This is an image I saw in an Etsy shop. I have had this happen before. Particularly the one in the back with the horizontal stripes. Since we know nothing about his pouring temps, frag. load, type of wax, etc. what are some generic possible causes for this?
Hello everyone : i have a question that might seem obvious to all of but I'm uncertain + hoping you can offer help. Im testing wax combinations (melts) & in the test few weeks will be testing candles + wicks. So my question is, can I do 1/2 pounds instead of full pounds so that I'm not wasting so much wax. If so, how does that work with the fragrance oil. say i have 1/2 lb of wax, would my weighed fragrance be 1/2 oz or a little over if i want it stronger . thank you in advance
