Do essential oils blend well with candles?

Recommended Posts

Guys I am struggling to get a good and lasting cold throw in my beeswax tablets/sachets! Any ideas on what I can do to make the fragrance stronger and last longer. There are guys who promise the wax tablet will last for a year.. is that possible? I use 100% cosmetic grade beeswax and a load of 12% of FO. Some guys claim that they use essential oils. I have tested that several times but never get a good throw with EO. TIA ..please share your thoughts.. thanks again

I'm not sure what a wax tablet is to advise.

 

Some EO can definitely last that long. Notably, long leaf pine, lemongrass (man that one sticks tooooo long, lol), lavender 40/42, palmarosa, eucalyptus, etc.. A lot comes down to the quality of the EO and how hot you are getting your mixtures during production, and how you store them.

They need to be sealed in a box or similar to contain the fragrance. Making scents with essentials oils you have to make blends with anchoring notes and they will last longer.
