Peppermint candle?

Recommended Posts

I have a very pepperminty FO (Peppermint Ice - OT). Is a straight peppermint candle too much, in your opinion?

If I want to tone it down I do have some Vaniglia del Madagascar (sp?) but wouldn't know how much to add - and does vanilla go brown in candles like in my soaps?

So much to learn!

Peppermint is great in candles. So refreshing. Nope, vanilla doesn't go brown in wax unless you make it brown.

Trick for combining scents ... Q-tips, cotton balls etc. Put different FOs on them and toss in a baggy. Come back later and smell. 2:1 ratios ... two tips or balls to 1, etc.

I love peppermint! I just made a huge pour of red chunks covered in white in an apothecary jar and it looks beautiful. I really like how it looks after it burns a little while. So, I guess I like it for 2 reasons- first the smell and second how beautiful it looks while it is burning!!!:yay:
