Check out my Massage Candle Oil Ratio experiment to see just how much carrier oil I can put into a candle and test the consistency. When you are making a Massage Oil Candle or a Lotion Candle it is very tempting to want to add a lot of carrier oils, which is understandable. However, we also need to make sure that this candle is going to in fact harden up into a candle. So I decided to do a 5 candle experiment and test different ratios of soy wax to carrier oil to see how the candles set up. Skin Care, Summer, Diy, Lot, Care, Check, Skin, Body, Experiment
