Hi all…

How do you keep your FO from tinting your clear gel wax? Seems like some oils turn my clear gel yellowish. I’ve noticed if i use FO that is more clear it doesn’t happen.. makes sense right.. Are there companies out there that you have found sell FO that are more clear?

Many fo’s either will have interaction with medium, or age darker, or age darker if they have vanilla. Many fragrance compounds are different shades. Some if they have essential oils in them will be various hues. You have to test.

Nightlight.. when you say “medium” are you referring to medium density gel wax?

There are clear or almost-clear oils out there, I was keeping a list years ago, but that was before sufficient information had come out about using non-polar scents with candle gel and the ones I was previously using were polar, so the list I made was probably of polar scents.  After that, I switched to non-polar scents and may have kept track of which ones were nearly colorless, I would have to dig through a notebook.

I don't know if this information is current, as I recorded these many years ago.  If the supplier has not changed their source in the last decade (!) on these, it may still hold true. 

 

Notes I made about the following scents ... these happened to be non-polar and they were clear:

 

Candles 'n' Supplies -

Blueberry, Raspberry, Potpourri, Pear, Mint Chocolate, Sweet Pea, Violet

 

The other supplier I made notes about has a 2-lb. minimum, so I don't know if there is any interest in those or not.
