Wax Candles
All of our fragrances are suitable for use in wax candles.   We have found each and every one of these fragrances to have excellent scent throw in containers, votives, and scented tarts.  That being said, be aware that scent throw can vary from one brand of wax to another, and even from one formula of wax to another within the same brand.  Container shape and wicks can also affect scent throw - so the only way to be sure of compatibility with your project is to make a test batch.

Gel Candles
All fragrances indicated as testing well in gel wax have a high flash point and are non-polar, as per the recommendations of Penreco, the leading gel manufacturer.  We test fragrances using High-Density and Medium-Density Penreco candle gel, at a usage rate of just under 3/4 oz. of fragrance per pound of gel.  All of these fragrances have a strong scent throw at that usage level.

Cold-Process Soap
We test all skin-safe oils in cold-process soap, using a basic olive/coconut/palm oil recipe and mixing when sodium hydroxide solution and oils are both between 95 and 100 degrees.  The ones that performed well (no seizing, overheating, or moderate-to-severe trace acceleration, and whose fragrances did not mutate or fade markedly over time) are marked as testing well in CP.   Unfortunately, we can't guarantee that your results won't vary, depending on the recipe, soapmaking techniques, and storage methods used, so we strongly recommend doing your own testing before making large batches.

Melt and Pour Soap
Skin-safe fragrances are tested in melt and pour soap, using a well-known premium brand of clear soap base, at a usage rate of approximately 1/2 oz. of fragrance per pound of soap base.  Those marked as testing well in MP experienced no separation, and did not mutate or fade over time in our base (significant discoloration is noted in the fragrance description).  Since the ingredients can vary in different brands of soap base, we suggest doing your own testing before making large batches.

Bath and Body Products
We test skin-safe fragrance in lotion, shower gel, bath salts, bath bombs, and lotion bars. All of the fragrances marked as testing well in Bath and Body performed very well overall - any exceptions to this are noted in the fragrance description.  Again, however, your results may vary due to differences in ingredients, recipes, or production methods, whether using commercially prepared bases or your own special recipes.

Home Fragrance Uses
All of these oils are well-suited for use in potpourri and incense making, and can be used in diffusers and on light bulb rings with excellent results.   They are all suitable for use in sachets, hanging air fresheners, and aroma jars.  We suggest a starting point of "1 part FO, 2 parts DPG" dilution when making incense, but making a test batch is the best way to determine the ratio that's just right for your incense.
