I recently decided to make homemade candles in my spare time since all 6 kids have left the house.
After much research and trial and error and reading many articles, I have found that Soy wax does not release fragrance oil well on its own, and needs an additive/chemical of some sort, but being that I am not a chemistry kinda gal, I don't want to buy certain acids or whatever and risk blowing up my kitchen, or making deadly fumes just because I am not aware of what chemicals can or can't go together.
You can add additives such as Vybar to certain waxes such as paraffin and it will help the color retention, and a few other things, but I am wanting something in the raw form that I can add to the soy wax before it solidifies so when the wick is lit, the fragrance will smell. Soy wax alone has a reputation of not releasing fragrance without using an additive/acid/compound to it. I just don't want to mix something that would be, or could be dangerous.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated..
