Sam D Posted January 31, 2019 Share Posted January 31, 2019 (edited) Hi everyone, someone please help me out before I throw something out the window... So I’ve started making wax melts - started off using paraffin pillar wax as it was a gift of my husband. But once I made some I wanted to use a more natural wax, so I’ve been testing different soy waxes - Kerasoy 4120, golden wax 494 and Eco soya pillar blend. Ive made a few clamshells and the wax is lovely and smooth but doesn’t have a great scent throw. I’ve followed instructions number of times but can’t get my head around it, I’ve previously bought other melts made by different people who claim theirs are '100% soy wax' but they smell much stronger than mine? I made them a couple of days ago so do they need to cure for awhile still? I'm also doing a bit of research as the paraffin wax I used had a good scent throw but looked too frosty and I just generally preferred the finish of the soy. I see there are 'blends' but it never states what’s actually in them. Can I go ahead and for example use like 80% soy and 40% paraffin and create my own? I love the finish and overall look of the Soy melts but it seems the paraffin are much stronger scent wise. Im sat here overthinking everything and because im a perfectionist I can’t go onto sell something I’m not 100% happy with. Thank you in advance!
