Can You Make Triple Scented Soy Candles?

What are Triple Scented Soy Candles

Time and time again on the Internet, I have seen advertisements for soy candles being sold that are touted as Triple Scented Soy Candles.

The presumption with “Triple Scented” candles is the scent load held will be three times greater than the fragrance held by a normal candle. Unfortunately this isn’t always true.  A good quality, highly scented soy candle will have a potent scent that will be long lasting, and rapidly fill the air with scent inside your home. Candles overloaded with too much fragrance oil, or essential oils tend to bleed out. When this happens there is an added risk of the floating oils catching fire, or the candlewick clogging. Under soy candle  Under Soy Candle Articles on the left see more articles, especially Scenting Soy Candle Wax Crusting Problem.

Recently I have seen sites on the Internet posting that they no longer sell their triple scented soy candles online. I am glad to see this, because due to the very nature of the beast, soy wax will only adsorb a limited quantity of  fragrance oil, or essential oils.

In layman’s terms, the quantity of fragrance used to scent a candle is 1/2 oz. (0.5 ounces) for each pound of wax. To create a triple scented soy candle, you would need to add 1 1/2 oz. (1.5 ounces) of your chosen fragrance per pound of soy candle wax. This would be a 9% saturation rate.

The industry standard is 1/2 oz. to 1 1/2 oz. scent to 16 oz (1 pound) of soy wax. At best you might be able to get soy wax to hold 2 oz. per pound.

Since soy candle wax can typically hold an ounce of scent per pound, you can see the problem which resulted when the big RUSH began to make highly scented, triple scented, maximum scented, richly scented soy candles. So now you know what all the FUSS is ABOUT!

It all comes down to testing. Certain essential oils are so strong, like pine, that loading  a full ounce of the fragrance into the candle wax could be overwhelming, causing irritation to sinuses, and eyes. Other candle scents are weaker, and will need more to achieve a high quality scent throw. So once again, it really comes down to making candles, and testing how they burn.

Follow these guide lines, and you should be able to produce your own highly scented soy candles with a maximum scent throw without having to worry about making a triple scented soy candle.

Happy Candle Making!

    hello exceptional little blog site you got there :) I use the exact web theme on my own yet unfortunately for whatever odd reason why it would seem to reload more rapidly on your site despite the fact that this blog seems to have significantly more multimedia. Have you been working with any specific plugins or widgets that quicken it up? Do you think you might be able to give the titles so that I can use these on my personal internet site so twilight new moon supporters could watch twilight new moon online trailers and clips a lot quicker I’d personally be thankful – many thanks ahead of time :)

    Maybe the diffference is that I am posting my videos on Utube, and putting the embed code link on my site? Try that, and let me know. Don’t think it is a plug in. Try checking upload time on SeoCentro before you change anything, and then check it again after. Use the metatag analyser it will also point some possible errors. Let me know how it goes. Good luck!

    I would appreciate more visual materials, to make your blog more attractive, but your writing style really compensates it. But there is always place for improvement

  • Christian Martinez says:

    Hi, maybe i’m being a little bit off topic here, but I was browsing your site and it looks fascinating. I’m writing a blog and trying to make it look neat, but everytime I touch it I mess something up. Did you design the blog yourself? Could someone with little experience do it, and add updates without messing it up? Anyways, good information on here, very informative.
