Also, what are the best essential oils for candle making?

I like combinations like Lemon, Lavender & Bergamot (use 50 drops of lemon and 50 drops of lavender, plus 10 drops of Bergamot for every 1 lb. of wax), or Rosemary, Eucalyptus & Tea Tree (50 drops of Rosemary, 50 drops of Eucalyptus and 10 drops of Tea Tree). Mix in essential oils using a wooden spoon or mixing tool.

Similarly, how do you make essential oil candles smell stronger?

  1. Use the recommended percentage of fragrance oil for the type of wax you're using.
  2. Be sure to weigh your fragrance oils on a scale, not measure in a cup or spoon.
  3. Add fragrance oil at 185Fº and stir gently and thoroughly with the melted wax.
  4. Let your candles cure before test burning them.

Considering this, what kind of oil do you use to make candles?

Yes, you can add essential oils to your candles. Essential oils keep best if stored in a cool, dark place—the very opposite of being poured into a hot wax candle!
