I know how to make scented candles but is it just me or do they not smell strong enough? I have had several disappointments and know that I’m following the directions precisely. The conclusion that I have drawn is that the companies I’m buying from just don’t make them strong enough.
I know you can kill the smell if you overheat the wax but I swear I’m not doing that. Apparently if you add too much scent it can make the candle burn poorly, so what’s the solution? Other people manage to make strong smelling candles. I probably sound a bit sucky but it does get frustrating when you spend money on something and then it doesn’t work out how you hoped.
Starla and Lisa’s Candle Making site has taught me a lot and they seem to know what they’re doing so maybe I should try buying scents from them. It says that they’re from high quality candle making oils and will give me the hot and cold scent throws I’ve been looking for. They definitely have a point about buying supplies from someone who makes candles and knows and not someone who just sells the supplies. I’ll keep you posted on my next scent quest.
I am sick of these lame soft scents so am on a mission to find out where to find the strong ones. Any input is much appreciated. Does anyone have a secret formula?
